U.N. SEATS REPUBLIC OF CHINA ON THIS DAY

Image result for THE UN SEATS RED CHINA IN 1971"

In a dramatic reversal of its long-standing commitment to the Nationalist
Chinese government of Taiwan, and a policy of non-recognition of the
communist People’s Republic of China, America’s U.N. representatives
vote to seat the PRC as a permanent member. Over American objections,
Taiwan was expelled.

The reasons for the apparently drastic change in U.S. policy were not
hard to discern. The United States had come to value closer relations
with the PRC more than its historical commitment to Taiwan. U.S.
interest in having the PRC’s help in resolving the sticky Vietnam
situation; the goal of using U.S. influence with the PRC as diplomatic
leverage against the Soviets; and the desire for lucrative economic
relations with the PRC, were all factors in the U.S. decision.

September 18, 1975, after crisscrossing the country with her captors–
or conspirators–for more than a year, Patty Hearst, or “Tania,” as
she called herself, was captured in a San Francisco apartment and

been brainwashed by the SLA, she was convicted on March 20, 1976,
and sentenced to seven years in prison. Her prison sentence was commuted by President
Jimmy Carter and she was released in
February 1979. She later married her bodyguard. In 2001, she
received a full pardon from President
Bill Clinton.
