chen shui bian and sun yat sen

i saw a big picture of chen shui bian taking a very respectful bow in front of a sun yat sen photo in taiwan, in the straits times today. i am just wondering when is chen shui bian going to make an announcement to remove all the pictures of sun yat sen from govt and official buildings? sun yat sen's stand is a united china as opposed to chen shui bian's two china and independent taiwan. is he doing a koizumi in taiwan? koizumi visited the yasukuni shrine and said he wanted to establish good relations with china and koreas, and will not go for a remilitarisation of japan. chen shui bian and koizumi have many things in common in terms of tactics and public gestures, and motives.

hi abao,

as a host it is basic courtesy to reply to my guest. but important thing is that the discussion and the tone must be warm and engaging.

so far all my guests are very proper and we have more or less set a tone for a decent discussion. i can only hope that this can go on this way unlike the fierce personal attacks in some sites or blogs which often deviated completely from the issue in discussion.

my position on all issues is very open and people all have their own views. i agree i will say so. i disagree i will say so. often there is no absolute right or wrong and i need to respect different opinions and views.
