If China doesnt like them THEN I SAY NO! No, really, they are great. Taipei is such a friendly city. Why not.

They represent a large military risk for little reward.

I agree with Octovon. At personal level I feel that Taiwan should be fully recognized & independent nation, being member of the UN. But when it comes to real politics, accepting Taiwan to enter the UN would be dangerous: it's not worth it.

What about the third option?

Would some sort of Observer status be a compromise, or a waste of time?

I think Taiwan should definitely be allowed into the U.N. they have every right to self determination and if they want to be an independent nation then that is their right. Of course China is going to veto it but I suppose that can't be helped at this point(the whole idea of one nation being able to veto the entire U.N. is ridiculous)

Update:

UN rejects Taiwan membership bid

The reason given was that China could not have seats under two different names and Taiwan and China are considered a single national entity. So either (mainland) China would have to be kicked out and replaced by Taiwan (fairly unlikely), or the UN would have to change its level of recognition of Taiwan.

Entirely predictable, of course. But it looks like President Chen is really moving towards Taiwanese independence.

This seems to me like the best option .

I can see your point, however wouldn't accepting Taiwan into the UN be "the right thing to do" Wars have been fought over much less... Would China go against the UN?

Not likely, the Chinese economy is reliant on importing cheaply produced consumer goods to the developed world. But the UN would never go to war against China anyway because China would veto it, and if they couldn't Russia would. There won't be a war between "the west" and China, but what happens to Taiwan is pretty much a bilateral thing; it depends just how much the Taiwanese government will be pursuing increasing independence.
