New Year's in Taipei!
For an "astronomical fee" Costa Rica has switched recognition to mainland China from Taiwan. The Central American countries have traditionally been very reactionary in foreign policy recognizing all types of right wing despots around the world, given that they have had their share, as well as acting as lapdogs for US policy shifts and turns over the years. Only 24 nations now recognize the runaway province as the "legitimate" representaive of China.
