Zumindest was die China- und Taiwanpolitik von Barack Obama angeht dürfen wir wohl nur wenig „Change“ erwarten:
U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain would seek to defend Taiwan and play hard ball with China if he comes to office, but Democratic front-runner Barack Obama would further sideline Taipei as he courts Beijing.
Analysts say neither candidate would radically change today’s status quo, but the former Vietnam War U.S. Navy pilot McCain is seen favoring Taiwan, which is struggling for an international voice.
Like current President George W. Bush, Obama proposes working with China on economic and security goals while pushing Taipei and Beijing to settle their differences peacefully.
Vier weitere Jahre Bush (zweite Amtszeit), quasi.
