Noted political scientist John Mersheimer recently gave a talk on Taiwan's future in a world where China's growth has never stopped and China is now a hyper-power. The talk is a fantasy and entertaining as far as it goes, but it contains this statement...
...The “Anti-‐Secession Law,” which China passed in 2005, says explicitly that “the state shall employ non-‐peaceful means and other necessary measures” if Taiwan moves toward de jure independence. It is also worth noting that the United States does not recognize Taiwan as a sovereign country, and according to President Obama, Washington “fully supports a one-‐China policy.”Anyone spot the apparent error?

Washington's One China policy does not include Taiwan.
