Tsai Ing-wen is a little woman not an Amazonian warrior. She had the nickname "Little Ing" for a long time before she became the chairperson of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in 2008.
 
Everybody in Taiwan knows who Chiang Wei-shui (蔣渭水) is. A 12.9-kilometer freeway tunnel passing under Snow Mountain (雪山) linking Taipei and Yilan in Northern Taiwan was opened in 2006. It is named Chiang Wei-shui Freeway.
 
President Tsai Ing-wen is almost elated by a scheduled change of the quasi-official Association of East Asian Relations (AEAR, 亞東關係協會) that facilitates "quasi-official relations" between Taiwan and Japan.
 
Taiwan has a defense minister who doesn't know what he is doing and what he has to do to defend the country. He is General Feng Shih-kuan, President Tsai Ing-wen's minister of national defense.
 
Both Taiwan and China deliberately celebrated the Feb. 28 Incident of 1947.
 
Thomas Jefferson wrote from Paris to Edward Carrington, whom he sent as a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1786 to 1788, on the importance of a free press to keep government in check. He concluded that if he had to choose between "a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."
 
President Tsai Ing-wen is looking more and more like President Donald Trump. They both were suspected of schizophrenic disorders during their presidential election campaigns. Symptoms abound after their inauguration. They seem to be paranoid and phrenetic.
 
One of the veteran Taiwan watchers in the United States has opined that President Donald Trump is "weaponizing" Taiwan to help contain the People's Republic of China.

Professor Lin Chong-pin (林中斌), who once served as President Chen Shui-bian's deputy defense minister, said in an exclusive interview with the Chinese Communist Party organ Global Times last Tuesday that the possibility of Taiwan's unification with China does "absolutely" exist.

One well-known political quip in the United States is: When facing a domestic trouble, the president goes abroad. President Richard M. Nixon did so quite often, but finally he had to resign in the face of almost certain impeachment and removal from office because of Watergate.
