<>Democratic Progressive Partyleaders are up in arms against President Ma Ying-jeou again for his attempt to sell out Taiwan. A memorandum circulated by the World Health Organizationlast September reminded its staff that they have to follow the procedures in its arrangement with China to facilitate implementation of the International Health Regulations with respect to “the Taiwan Province of China.” The document, which is said to have been leaked to an opposition party legislator, was made public by a DPP lawmaker, and all her colleagues fired a broadside at the Ma government for failing to uphold the sovereignty of the Republic of China.

<>The procedures in question are included in a 2005 memorandum of understandingbetween the WHO and the People's Republic of China. The administration, then under President Chen Shui-bian, filed a protest with the WHO, of course. But a Department of Health official was sent to Geneva to take part in a WHO-sponsored meeting as a delegate from “Taiwan, China” a year later. He protested by erasing China from his nameplate but attended the meeting anyway.

<>Taiwan tried in vain to join the World Health Assembly , the decision-making organization of the WHO, for years until 2009 when Yeh Chin-chuan, the then minister of health, took part in a WHA meeting as an observer from Chinese Taipei in accordance with the MOU procedures. And Chinese Taipei is sending its health minister to the next WHA meeting, which is scheduled to open in Geneva next week. The time has come for the opposition party to chant its “sellout Taiwan” mantra anew against President Ma.

<>Let's not forget that so far as the United Nations is concerned, the Republic of China has been a Chinese province of Taiwan since the representatives of Chiang Kai-shek were kicked out of that world organization in 1971. Whenever Taiwan is mentioned in its official documents, the Republic of China is named a province of China. The international press never fails to add that Taiwan is a renegade province which China wants to take back, by force if necessary.

<>

<>As a matter of fact, using the name Chinese Taipei is the only possible compromise the two sides of the Taiwan Strait can now accept. That's why the WHO, which is a U.N. affiliated organization where statehood is not mandatory for membership, uses Chinese Taipei in its official communications with the health authorities in Taipei and requires its staff to obey its MOU with Beijing.

<>

<>None of us are satisfied with such an arrangement, but that is the only way Taiwan can participate in the WHA as an observer. It's certainly not a conspiracy between the Kuomintang and the Chinese Communist Party, as claimed by the opposition party, to reduce Taiwan's sovereignty.

<>

<>But there's more than enough evidence to show the opposition party has sold out Taiwan's sovereignty. Remember Chen Chu, DPP mayor of the special municipality of Kaohsiung, went to Beijing as a “compatriot from Taiwan” to urge Chinese participation in the World Games in her southern port city in 2010. Many more opposition party leaders, including former Vice President Annette Lu, also visited China as compatriots from Taiwan.

<>Ah, yes, we have almost forgotten to mention President Chen. He himself has claimed in prison that he was an agent of the American military in Taiwan for eight long years from 2000 to 2008. In an all-out attempt to get a release, he said he always dutifully obeyed the head of the American Institute in Taiwan and called on U.S. President Barack Obama to order Ma to get him out of jail. He hasn't been jailed for working as an U.S. agent. He is behind bars for corruption and graft. It seems he sold out Taiwan to the United States as soon as he had been inaugurated eleven years before.

<>

<>Why should the opposition party try to beat this dead horse now? Simple, it's election time. Eligible voters are set to go to the polls to elect their new president and parliament come Jan. 14. The DPP leaders have to cite every possible case of “selling out Taiwan” by the ruling Kuomintang to rally support from hardcore pro-independence activists and China-hating voters.

<>

<>In their distorted logic, anybody who says or does anything smacking of a compromise across the Taiwan Strait isn't selling out our homeland, as long as he or she is a DPP member. Anybody else who does so is “one of those trying to sell out Taiwan.” To be fair, no opposition leaders should or can charge anybody with being a sellout before they first call President Chen a traitor for selling out Taiwan to the United States.
