"on how to Ma re-elected"? Might wanna fix the typo: I'd almost say it's channeling Engrish!

Imagine American musicians having concerts in Madrid, but a reactor north of Berin had problems like the one in Fukushima (and by problems I also mean the media circus), do you think they would come?

It's not shameful nor idiotic to cancel a trip to a country you have no real idea where it is and what to expect.

The radiation fears are totally legitimate. When you're on an airplane, you're exposed to almost 30x background radiation. On a flight from Europe to Taiwan, that exposure continues for like 12 hours. So you're getting 15 days worth of radiation flying to Taiwan. It's no wonder people have completely stopped flying anywhere for any reason ever.

The fact that they have no real idea of where Taiwan is and have not bothered to look it up is precisely the reason why they should ashamed.

The 'fear' the article is talking about has nothing to do with exposure to cosmic radiation while flying.

It's no wonder people have completely stopped flying anywhere for any reason ever.

Uh, hyperbole much?

Plenty of people still fly. Decreases in flights can probably be explained by the fact that it is no longer as needed, thanks to the existence of global communication networks.

Here is a good video report from CNN about China flexing military might. At least until it shows Taiwan military at 3m44s.
