I placed the POV tag when creating the article because it is pasted from a US government website. Because this comes from a US govt source it may not be neutral, but I don't have the expertise to judge. (Hopefully others that know more will simply remove the tag if they think the article looks okay.) Mangostar (talk) 05:20, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
I edited after previewing the sources that I could preview (google books limits).
- "However, Chiang did not like the Americans, and was suspicious of their motives." Pg. 412 does not mention his dislike for the Americans, but does mention his suspicions.
- "Chiang ordered the plotters executed." The plotters, or the CIA did not get directly involved. Those who did carry out the plans were considered "rebels" in the book and thus were the ones executed.
- "Earlier, he had been involved with the Blue Shirts Society, a fascist inspired paramilitary group in the Kuomintang, which wanted to expel Western and Japanese imperialists, crush the Communists, and eliminate feudalism." Does not really have anything to do with ROC-US relations. Overall, I feel the history part is too biased Chiang8mm (talk) 15:02, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
rename without discussion
This article was renamed without discussion. One problem is that officially the U.S. has no relations with the "Republic of China", it has unofficial relations with "Taiwan". Just one example of this is that the law governing the relations is called the "Taiwan Relations Act", not the "Republic of China Relations Act". Readin (talk) 22:35, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
- If moving without discussion is offensive to you in this case. I apologise. I didn't think it would be a problem.
- The Act is called "Taiwan Relations Act" because the US doesn't recognise the "Republic of China".
- The article is about the "Republic of China", not Taiwan. Taiwan, according to the NPOV naming policy, is a geographic location. The US cannot have any interaction with a place, it is having interactions with a state which it does not recognise. That state is "Republic of China".--pyl (talk) 14:02, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
response to Pyl
Uh, so what about RoC-US relations prior to 1970? I'm fine with not referring to the Republic on China as Taiwan (even though it's wrong), as long as we don't make everything else confusing. Now it certainly is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:45, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Penultimate Paragraph unclear
Maybe someone can clarify what this means: "On 24 August 2010, the United States State Department announced a change to commercial sales of military equipment in place of the previous high provide Foreign Military Sales (unclear) in the hope of avoiding political implications (please specify).  --Lacarids (talk) 02:07, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

RoC - US relations
I read above that this was moved to Taiwan-US relations and simply ignores RoC-US relations prior to 1949 (or 1970ish, in which such relations still had official existence). This page is now confusing to me. Where can I find info about RoC-US relations that are not centric to RoC during its relocation to Taiwan (either before or after there were still historical relations that were officially seen as RoC-US?) Is this some attempt to rewrite history? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:42, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
