Maybe it is just the politicians stirring things up for their own selfish ends?"
Ding, ding,ding give this man a cigar he wins the million dollar question. I could not have said it better myself. When people make grandiose announcements the first things to check are the man and his motivations.

When you are done trying so hard to emotionally blackmail me and other smart readers here so we can have a real discussion let me know. Here I can even hold your hand when you decide to come down from your soapbox.
"It is not the international problem."
Really? Then perhaps the man should not be making international announcements to advance his own political agenda? My good man read more carefully and do more research so you gain a broader view and do not get boxed into such a narrow view of things. That is simply the point I am making.

No real hatred of the him or the KMT. Just pointing out the facts about the man and his political affiliations to get the real story here. Sadly this public announcement is not about any actual caring or concern. It's really a political power play where backroom deals are made between national-political powers for private profiteering using emotional topics as the form of currency. What we have here mate is making a huge amount of noise and racket on one end to deflect the general public's notice of the real agenda. Glad you don't care about that and happily accept your own narrow view of the article.

Flyfalcon: "I did not see any single word related to mainland Chinese or KMT party crime of past for that topic."
Breathe, take a step back and relaxx. Think you missed my point about the REAL topic and motivations for Ma's public denouncements. Here I will put it in quotes for you "This is really about a crooked politician and his political maneuverings."
