Taiwan with the mainland retired generals to the United States so warm Why let anxiety, it would have to talk about these old-timers of the Taiwan military’s enormous influence.
the island’s staunchest pro-unification
Lee Teng-hui and Chen Shui-bian has been manipulated for over two decades, the island supports a unified voice smaller. In order to avoid being labeled as “betraying Taiwan” label, including the Kuomintang some people even as “unification” of sensitive words. But on May 10 at the “Zhongshan, Huangpu, Strait” forum, a clear-cut, along the same lines, has vowed to follow their ancestors footsteps and play Whampoa spirit, and promote peaceful development of cross-strait relations, and ultimately achieve the reunification of China. Taiwan media to describe, “the high emotional shock the whole venue.”
Forum Taiwan by the 91-year-old former director of the General Political Warfare Department, served as convener Hsu Li-nung, Taiwan participants up to 50 retired generals. Including former “Armed Forces University” process state government, the former “army commander” DH pet, the former “Navy Commander in Chief” Miao Yongqing, the former “National Defense University,” charges David Bo et al. Will be the most distinctive speech before the Taiwan authorities, “Deputy Defense Minister,” the former KMT chairman Wang Wenxie Huang Department of Baath Party. He said that Sun Yat-sen created for the purpose of the Whampoa Military Academy “Northern Expedition and the reunification of China”, the KMT is the first establishment of a democratic constitution, freedom, equal distribution of wealth and unified China, has not changed.
the people invited to the mainland to Taiwan, the People’s Liberation Army to the Whampoa Military Academy was born descendants of the main star, which most attention to the number of Premier Zhou Enlai’s niece Madame Zhou. Madame Zhou was first set foot on this island, excitement was palpable. She said with emotion at the forum, Premier Zhou Enlai during his lifetime greatest regret is Taiwan. Three months before death the body is very weak, but he also straining under the effort with a trembling hand on the Taiwan issue instructions, instructions that the last words, “Zhou Enlai on September 4 care, child care, child care, child care.”
In fact, before this large-scale forum, 23 retired generals Taiwan visit Beijing in April. According to Taiwan media disclosed, was not only the Central Military Commission Vice Chairman Xu banquet, National Defense University, also in a grand salute to meet the instrument teams, and even made an exception in the space city arrangement Yang Liwei, Fei Junlong, Nie Haisheng and other six astronauts posed for pictures with the Taiwan military generals.
Ma Ying-jeou of the think tank
old saying Renzouchaliang, but retired generals in the Taiwan island is an exception. 2008, Ma Ying-jeou elected Taiwan leader, a letter from the Taipei County immediately sent to the desk Ma Ying-jeou, who is sent a letter to the “Central Military Academy Alumni Association.” The letter bluntly, the first that will be moved to the KMT, Taipei county party office building; second, should be held at the end of a meeting, invite alumni to attend.
Ma Ying-jeou is not easily offended these old generals, because he was in many ways to listen to their views. Taiwan retired generals to play the place where most heat is the think tanks. Such as the April visit of generals, it’s all over like the old “China Strategy Institute”, a large number of “Central Military Academy Alumni Association,” with the mainland counterparts Whampoa Alumni Association’s “universal concentric Whampoa will”, and in recent years have been established ” Research Institute of Chinese Art of War “and” Chinese economic strategy for the National Defense Association, “and so on. The end of 2009 established the “Chinese economic strategy for the National Defense Association,” is by retired Major General, Taiwan’s “National Defense” strategy before the Institute has led the establishment of Rui Zhang. In July, he invited a group of retired generals Zhang Rui develop the “” Defense Ministry “reorganization” and “how to strengthen the” Department of Defense, “the role of civilian research,” two reports were sent to dispatch the “Presidential Palace” ” Executive Yuan “,” National Security “and the” Department of Defense. ” Allegedly, Ma Ying-jeou attaches great importance to these reports, when he was the “premier”, Liu also instructed to report “tube.”
capacity for mobilizing voters and no one can
addition to being a think-tank, the influence of Taiwan retired generals also throughout the political and business circles. Taiwan has been the so-called “Hao Jiajun,” “Tang Jiajun,” “Kunlun Gang” saying that although the abdication of the generals, but his troops still. For example, “Hao Jiajun,” the leader is the front of the stage, “Defense Minister” Hao Po-tsun, the son of the incumbent Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin is. Lee Teng-hui Chen Shui-bian Ma Ying-jeou and then they are in the office of mayor of Taipei turned up the Taiwan leader experience the throne, so Hau Lung-bin’s political future should imagine. Taiwan’s political and military circles has always been Yushuiguanxi, the military can be placed in the political agents, politicians can grasp this military power.
only affect the political, business is even more respectful of the retired generals. In Taiwan, many project bidding site, you will see a special phenomenon, that is, manufacturers will be invited to some retired generals to help out. Some large companies are often hired retired generals to company management. One is the value the network of people, and the second is with tens of thousands of soldiers, the generals had managed to mention thousands of general number of people. Taiwan businessmen in mainland talked about themselves and more interested in the relationship between retired generals, because some things to run for your generals, the mainland will be to sort of face.
the island’s most influential group of retired generals to the number of the KMT’s “Yellow Baathist Department.” Yellow Baath Party member of the Department is retired KMT officers and soldiers, they are distributed in Taiwan’s 18 million people in 23 counties, each division has its own designation, such designation is called Huang Guojia Chiayi City, Kaohsiung City’s designation called Eddie Wong . In addition, they also have their own documents, envelopes, newsletter and more. Although the number of party members the total number of KMT members only 20%, but the centripetal force, force for mobilizing voters is strongest within the KMT, “enough to grasp the KMT intended.”
News Comments: cross-strait “peace agreement” from here
the substantive cross-strait dialogue between retired generals, is considered the cross-strait military trust a great step forward, and military exchanges between the two sides has been considered the signing of “peace agreement” an important cornerstone. Only the cross-strait military situation on the reason for the mutual understanding and trust, will not misjudge the situation.
as before the Taiwan authorities, “Deputy Defense Minister,” said Wang Wenxie, professional and amateur doorway to watch, the Taiwan media, and provoked much discussion in the Green Camp to withdraw the request mainland missile issue, it seems the military is a fake proposition, because one of the continent has its own strategic considerations, not entirely aimed at Taiwan, and the second to withdraw the missiles can be brought back immediately, does not make sense, “look at the issue with military people, with those self-proclaimed expert on the media perception is not the same person The. ” (Wu Chan)
