Ma & Cabinet "Decide" on Zhonghua Taipei

For Ma and his cabinet to even have to convene a meeting to decide whether to allow China to change the official title for Taiwan (Chinese Taipei - Zhonghua Taipei) to Zhongguo Taipei is ridiculous. The name was decided and agreed upon by all parties in 1989 and although sad to say, is not Taiwan or China's place to decide whether or not to allow China to alter the name, just because China is hosting the Olympics this year. For all the "progress" that the KMT proclaims to have occurred cross-strait in setting aside these kinds of disputes, it seems that once again China says one thing and does the other.

"Stop politicizing Olympics," China.
