McCain tilts towards Taiwan, Obama may favor China

Analysts say neither candidate would radically change today’s status quo, but the former World War Two commander McCain is seen favoring Taiwan, which Americans of his generation called “Free China” but which now struggles for an international voice.

I may have this wrong but this story seemed to imply that Senator McCain had served as a commander in the Second World War. Considering he was born in 1936 this would make him an incredibly capable individual indeed!!


Lots of readers noticed this one. We meant Vietnam, of course. We corrected: GBU Editor
