BEIJING – The Generalissimo must go. For more than 40 years, the smiling face of Chiang Kai-shek seated on the throne has welcomed visitors to the memorial dedicated to him in downtown Taipei. A huge bronze statue – 6.3 meters – which now, in the government’s plans, will have to be removed. For some time the Taiwanese have been questioning and dividing themselves: a fierce opponent of the Communists, a liberator or a ferocious dictator? Today in democratic Taiwan – one of the most advanced and solid in all of Asia – there is no more room for the man who fled here with his troops after Mao’s victory and who for decades ruled with an iron fist.
