- Recently, President Ma of ROC is going to make a speech about perpetual peace across the Taiwan Strait in the memorial day of this bombardment but he is mitaken. I have read from some other sources including the ones below that point out Mao started this bombardment to lock Chiang Kai Shek and Kuomingtang to the One Chine Principle and Mao would not allow Chiang's republic to be independent from Mainland China by any kind of arragement of the USA so Taiwan will be recovered by the PRC and that's why Mao ordered the war. There are several high ranking files disclosed recently that deal with high level conversations in the PRC about the intent of this bombardment.
A very nice start. The map makes it look a lot prettier and more professional, even if it doesn't really add anything content-wise. The article could benefit from some expansion, and definitely needs references. LordAmeth 20:08, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Someone needs to translate the Chinese characters under that picture of a sign in Chinese. This is the English wikipedia. That caption is not informative to English speakers. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:34, 18 February 2007 (UTC).
Until someone translate that, then it cannot be included in the article. --The Dark Side 02:11, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Philippine Air Force involvement
I am not sure why the Philippine Air Force was listed under "Belligerents", as it's not mentioned anywhere in the article itself, I am taking that off for now until someone can provide sources for that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cl191 (talk • contribs) 06:16, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
References Removed from Youtube
Under the heading of Overview the last sentence struck me as strange: "And the PLA thought that the Taiwan/ROC and US forces had started to use nuclear weapons on them." Seems to me to be someone's personal pov, the references have been removed from Youtube (not exactly a great source for a ref anyway I would say), with the following message: " 823炮戰50週年_..." This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement from claimants including: iMBC " . This sentence in the article needs clarification with a proper reference or removal. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:26, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
