Taiwan Declares Peace on China?

Robert Scheer, Editor in Chief of Truthdig, inspired progressive, consummate broken-record, articulate polemicist, and occasional weirdo has written an article entitled “Taiwan Declares Peace on China” in which he excoriates neocons for wasteful military spending by holding up the example of the truce between China and Taiwan for comparison.

The question is, does he too eagerly succumb to the self-interested rhetoric of both sides when he declares that “this long chapter of Cold War conflict has been closed and a new era of peace proclaimed by once strident foes”? A provocative, if problematic, read.
