Reshuffling of Governing Political Parties
Regulations Governing the People’s Republic of China Liberation Army’s Political Operations
With the promulgation of the Regulations Governing the People’s Republic of China Liberation Army’s Political Operations on December 5, 2003, People’s Liberation Army was empowered to engage in the “Triple Warfare (Media Warfare, Psychological Warfare, and Legal Warfare)” against its enemies. Although the economic and trade ties between the two sides of the Straits have increased in recent years, the PRC and the Republic of China on Taiwan are still in the state of hostility, and the ROC on Taiwan remains the primary target of the “Triple Warfare” of the PRC, with Psychological Warfare as the primary weaponry of the PRC. Even with the ease of tension across the Straits in recent years, the PRC has never ceased its psychological warfare against Taiwan. This is a cruel fact that every citizen in Taiwan must always bear in mind. With the change in strategic environment and decision-maker, there have indeed been adjustments regarding the PRC psychological warfare against Taiwan. However, as the PRC persists in upholding the “One China” policy and its President Hu Jintao’s explicit instruction: “Keeping hope on the people in Taiwan”, the PRC has denied Taiwan’s sovereignty, and without negotiating beforehand with the ROC on Taiwan, unilaterally announced measures such as zero-tariff policy on imported Taiwanese fruit and tuition reduction for all Taiwanese studying in Mainland China. The purpose of adopting such measures is to weaken Taiwanese people’s allegiance to the government, and to accomplish its vicious goal of “cornering the government through people power”. The PRC also adopts the “double-barreled” scheme, in which the “soft” is intended to keep Taiwanese off-guard and the “hard” to intimidate Taiwan with its strong military power. The ultimate goal of the scheme is to impose its vicious political propaganda into the minds of Taiwanese people, brainwashing them and implanting in them the false idea that “Taiwan is part of ‘China’”. Therefore, people living in Taiwan should all stand united as one indivisible nation—backed up by all-out defense, strong in both psychological and defensive weaponry, and solid in information security preventive measures—in order not to fall victim to the psychological warfare of the PRC. Since President Ma Ying-jeou’s inauguration on May 20, 2008, the two sides of the Straits have witnessed unprecedented prospects of development. People on both sides of the Straits hope not only to leave the unpleasant past behind but more importantly, to join hands in creating a “win-win” situation. However, to achieve this goal, the PRC must first abrogate and renounce its “One-China Policy” and “Anti-Secession Law”. It must also stop blocking the ROC on Taiwan’s activities in the global arena; at the same time, it must remove all the military facilities targeting at Taiwan. In fact, both the PRC and the ROC on Taiwan should move forward under the consensus that both sides “are fully aware of the status quo, put aside the controversial issues, and actively pursue a future that is mutually beneficial”. It is under this guiding principle that both the PRC and the ROC on Taiwan should strive for a better future and for the peace and harmony not only for this region but for the entire world.
