Not what Beijing had in mind

The 2008 Olympics were supposed to be the moment Communist China was welcomed as a rising power and a dynamic nation in the world structure.

It didn't turn out that way.

The elction of Ma Ying-jeou in Taiwan was supposed to give the cadres a new chance to win over the Taiwanese people, or at least lull them to sleep about the threat from Beijing.

That didn't work either.
