Taiwan is Formosa

The island of Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa, was inhabited by aborigines before the 17th century, when Dutch and Spanish colonies opened the island to mass Han immigration. After a brief rule by the Kingdom of Tungning 東寧王國, the island was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynasty, the last dynasty of China.

I was born and raised in Taiwan and my ancestors have lived in Taiwan for more than 400 years. My native "mother's tongue" language is Taiwanese. But Chiang 蔣中正retreated to Taiwan with 2 million soldiers in 1949. Chiang as president of Taiwan, he forced Taiwanese to learn Mandarin Chinese. The former U.S. president, Jimmy Carter announced to abandon Taiwan in Nov 1979. My mom was in USA and just in time to apply immigration for me to come to USA in 1980. I have resided in USA ever since for more than 41 years.

October 1st is CCP controlled China for 72 years anniversary day. CCP sent 38 fighting jets to threat Taiwan, on Oct. 2nd sent another 39 jets, Oct 3rd another 16 jets, Oct 4th another 56 jets, totaling 149 jets in 4 consecutive days. In 2021 alone, CCP already sent 800+ jets to intimidate Taiwan. Taiwan has NEVER done any wrong to China but CCP has saber-ratting Taiwan since the USA established diplomatic relationship with China in 1980 and changed China's economy for 40 years to become the world 2nd place.

Knowing the history of CCP that gone through Great Famine, Cultural Revolution that k*lled more than 80 million Chinese people and shut down "Iron Curtain", China's economy had backward 30 years behind the world. My mom was scared about CCP's atrocities, so she took me to the USA.

Taiwan has its own sovereignty, constitution, national flag, national anthem, passport, presidential elections, democracy,... We are peaceful people. However, CCP kept intimidating Taiwan, isolating Taiwan from W.H.O., W.T.O. and diplomatic relationships with many countries. There are many people don't know what and where Taiwan located. They mistakenly thought Taiwan is Thailand. That's why I want to post this blog to introduce "Taiwan". It's the least I can do for Taiwan.

It is sad that Taiwan has a bully, combative, and belligerent neighbor country.

I believe in karma and justice will prevail. Just wait and see.
