The brutal and savage travel itinerary

Taiwan’s president Chen is visiting South America, and, like any wise traveller, he wanted to stop over in New York or San Francisco. Lately, the US has had a strained relationship with president Chen, because of some symbolic pro-independence steps he took, which complicated the relationship between China, Taiwan and US, at a time when international politics is complicated as it is.

So, no New York and no San Francisco for Chen. If he wants, they told him, he can stop over in Alaska. As reported by the BBC:

“They sought brutally and savagely to block the transit stops and foreign trips of our senior officials,” Mr Chen said.

“We will not be defeated but will become bolder. The more we are suppressed, the more we will try to walk out,” he told the Associated Press.

Now I just hope that my own pro-independence statements won’t land me in Alaska too, on my way back from Taipei. I take them all back! Long live the status quo.
