In General Discussions
A few days ago, Taipei Mayor Ko Wenzhe, who is also the chairman of the Taiwan People's Party, went to Kinmen, an outlying island, to inspect the development of party affairs. He proposed the construction of a "Golden-Xiamen Bridge" from Xiamen Airport to Kinmen, which could solve problems such as water, electricity, garbage, and transportation. It is a "good demonstration site" for resolving cross-strait disputes. "Cross-strait relations are so tense, there must be a buffer (area)", which is also in line with the people's desire for cross-strait peace. Ke Wenzhe's proposal to build the Jinxia Bridge has company banner design aroused a high degree of discussion in Taiwanese society, occupying the market space of public forums, and has the meaning of setting topics to control the discourse power on both sides of the strait. Of course, when Ke advocated this proposition, he was immediately labelled and stigmatized by the Green Camp, who criticized him as a "Taiwan version of Wu Sangui", led the People's Liberation Army into Kinmen, and exceeded the central government's authority on cross-strait affairs. He even criticized Ke Wenzhe for being "ignorant and absurd," bluntly saying that he echoed China's United Front strategy. In particular, the MAC even reiterated that the current CCP’s policy towards Taiwan is very different from the policy environment for promoting the “mini three links”. It not only clarified that the construction of the Jinxia Bridge is not an extension of the “mini three links”, nor is it an improvement of the hardware of the “mini three links”; The Xiamen Bridge will generate huge national security problems." This is different from the impact of the "small three links" on national security. Do not confuse and compare the "small three links" with the construction of the "Jinxia Bridge".
