nope, as far as i remember they're the remains of the pre-commie chinese government that evacuated to the island during the commie takeover and set up their own 'legitimate' regime there. so that's why they call themselves "the republic of china" (as opposed to the people's republic of china)
they're enemies technically, and i think the only reason taiwan is still independent is because they're a US ally. and maybe china can't into naval invasions but i'm not so sure about that one.>>8555684
and it's only three new tracks right? pretty risky. i'll only get excited when i see musical teaser i like.
