Our friend Taiwan

The government of Taiwan has arrested a general on accusations of spying for China in what could be the most prominent espionage case in Taiwan in decades.

The Ministry of National Defense discovered suspicious activity last year and arrested Maj. Gen. Lo Hsien-che on Jan. 25, according to a statement posted on the ministry’s Web site late Tuesday. The statement did not give any details on what espionage activities the general might have been engaged in. He was recruited to spy for China sometime during a posting overseas from 2002 to 2005, the statement said.

In other words, any military secrets or advanced technology we share with Taiwan will eventually find its way into the hands of the Chinese Communist government in Beijing, either through espionage now or via ultimate reunification of China eventually.
