wikileaks just confirmed what i have always said on this site: CIA is a big presence on this island. but that involvement went much deeper than a civilian like me could ever guess.
do i care? sort of. i feel taiwan should have the right to control their own destiny, if they can.The US using taiwan as their prime listening base (well they technically still own taiwan, having not officially released the island from WWII)is sort of a violation of all our rights. you want to live on an island to get the hell AWAY from big brother, and shit, he's here too!
and now AIT is talking about putting Marines at their new location when they move. is this a sign of a US military build up on the island?
hope not. taiwan took a lot of shit from US GIs during the vietnam era.not that "tai ke" probably didn't dish out an equal amount.it's just that the US military has a DESERVEDLY bad reputation, wherever they go. i hate to see that start up here.
personally, as long as CIA/FBI/NSA/whatever keeps low key,sticks to keeping China at bay, and doesn't INTERFERE WITH MY GOALS IN LIFE, then i'm ok with them.
just stay out of people's lives unless you wanna do some good.
