Chen Shui-bian hits back with brass knuckles or cotton candy?

Well, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on this yet, but I'm sure we'll have more details tomorrow. The president says that if China passes its "anti-secession" law in March, then China would have unilaterally upset the status quo, thus giving Taiwan the right to hold a referendum on an "anti-annexation" law. What that law would entail is anyone's guess, but it's nice to know that the president will stand up to China after such a provocation. Then again, it's difficult to say if this is substance or bluster. More here ...
