Because the KMT lacks legal standing

to negotiate with the Chinese Communist Party, their having sent a delegation to China to do just that can only be the product of political calculation. But it's a baffling calculation -- as Hyatt noted, they only seem to be rewarding China for belligerence. That won't play in Pingtung.

What they're really after, one assumes, is to undercut the international legitimacy of the DPP, and of the president in particular. In some countries, they'd call that treason.

Isn't it funny how perfectly the KMT's interests seem to align with Beijing's? You'd almost think they were coordinating their strategies...
