Taiwan honors members of US Armed Forces

The Ministry of National Defense presented roughly 600 medals to members of the United States Armed Forces Dec 14, in recognition of the help and support given to Taiwan in the aftermath of Typhoon Morakot.

Approximately 10 representatives from the U.S. Armed Forces attended the ceremony, as did William A. Stanton, Director of the American Institute in Taiwan.

"We would like to offer you our great thanks for your magnanimous assistance, given as if to a brother." said Kao Hua-chu, Minister of National Defense.

Blog editor's Note: We should station at least 20,000 U.S. military advisors in Taiwan on a permanent basis to handle "any" future situations on a moments notice.

Mr. Kao spoke correctly, we are your brothers sir, we will be there for you in the future.

Do I hear a second to my motion to return US Forces to Taiwan on a permanent basis?

I think the chance that the US Forces will rerurn to Taiwan permanently in the future is quite slim. FYI Report: Majority of Young Americans Unfit to Serve in Military
