外文标题：How China's shadowy agency is working to absorb Taiwan
TAIPEI/HONG KONG: Ever since a civil war split the two sides more than 60 years ago, China has viewed Taiwan as a renegade province that needs to be absorbed into the mainland. To that end, the legion of Taiwanese businessmen working in China is a beachhead.
In June, hundreds of those businessmen gathered in a hotel ballroom in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. They were there to toast the new head of a local Taiwan merchants' association. They sipped baijiu liquor and ate seafood as a troupe performed a traditional lion dance for good luck. An honored guest, senior Communist Party official Li Jiafan, stood to deliver congratulations and a message.
"I urge our Taiwanese friends to continue to work hard in your fields to contribute to the realization of the Chinese dream as soon as possible," said Li, using a nationalist slogan President Xi Jinping has popularized. "The Chinese dream is also the dream of the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait — our dream of reunification."

Chinese have a voracious apetite for land mass, they have swallowed Tibet, large areas in poonch sector in west and chunks pf arunachal pradesh. India has to be wary of them 24/7. Taiwan is the nest dish they have taken on their plate in their unending lunch!!!
