Assignment #1

Taipei, Beijing still working on Olympic torch path agreement

The Taiwanese and Chinese governments have not yet come to an agreement about whether or not Taiwan will be part of the Olympic Torch Relay for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. There have been several meetings recently between officials from both Olympic committees, but no progress has been made.
Taiwan has long objected to the route of the torch, because China maintains that it is part of the "domestic route". Plans are for the torch to come to Taiwan from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, before going to Hong Kong. There has also been some disagreement about what Taiwan will be called during the Olympics. China prefers "China, Taiwan" while Taiwan wants "Chinese Taipei."
There is much disagreement in Taiwan as to whether or not the torch should come to Taiwan. Many hope that the torch will help advertise Taipei and Taiwan, but many also fear that it could be used as a political trick by China.
Question: What do you think about Taiwan's participation in the Olympic games? What name should Taiwan use? Should the Olympic torch come to Taiwan? Answer these quesitons and give your comments.

I think if the torch came to Taiwan does mean that we are a province of China?If we are a country then why we want the torch came to Taiwan.Every time when we want join some organization,China said we are not a coutry so we can't join,so it means that we are a province of China.If we want to participation in the Olympic games then our name must be Taipei,Taiwan.

This is a serious question that everyone's talking about. I hate the China government for they didn't give Taiwan the right to be a country in the Olympics games, even to be in the United Nations (It's really annoying!) . It's really bad that every time when it's Olympics we have to use the name, Chinese Taipei. And now they didn't want us to have a name. What I'm sayin' is that Taiwan is NOT a part of China, NOT a province of China, and we are NOT Chinese, we are Taiwanese. If we can join the game, the name must be Chinese Taipei at least, but the best would be Taiwan. Taiwan IS independent, and I hope one day Taiwan will be a member country of the United Nations.
