Ozzy Osbourne to help Taiwan in U.N. membership quest.

TAIPEI (Reuters) - After 14 failed attempts at joining the United Nations using media campaigns and presidential appeals, Taiwan is turning to a local goth-style rock band backed by Ozzy Osbourne in its quest for membership to the world body.

The band, named ChthoniC, will travel to at least 80 cities in four countries by the end of the year, supported in part by the Taiwan government, which is providing pro-U.N. literature and a slogan-painted truck.
The band will visit Canada, Germany, Britain and the United States.
ChthoniC has also recorded a song urging the United Nations to let Taiwan join, even though its bid for membership keeps getting knocked down because of objections from Beijing.
"I'm not for any political party, but I'm for my poor country's joining the United Nations," band lyricist Freddy Lim told reporters on Wednesday at the tour's launch.
Ozzy Osbourne, a satanic-theme rocker known for biting heads off bats on stage, is helping set up 20 of the U.S. gigs, paying some transport costs and letting the Taiwan band promote U.N. membership as it wishes, Lim said. He said the band hooked up with Osbourne through personal connections.
Taiwan's leadership came up with the idea as it prepares to reapply for U.N. membership later this year, the cabinet's news office said on Tuesday.
China blocks self-ruled Taiwan's applications every year because it sees the island as part of its territory and not a separate country. The two sides split after civil war in 1949, and Taiwan left the United Nations in 1971 under Chinese pressure.

Ha..they had to say "Ozzy Osbourne, a satanic-theme rocker known for biting heads off bats on stage"LOL!

This is what I think...Don't support this goal at all.
Awful idea. You get Taiwan in the general assembly and you've got an incredibly pissed off China - and that is the absolute LAST thing this world needs.
The US has the superior force, without question, and China knows this fact. Their real trump card is the fact that they hold nearly $1 trillion USD in their national bank, and capitalizing on that would hit the US economy very hard. But they're not stupid enough to do that either.

Too bad China doesn't run the U.N. and no ones walking on their tippy toes around China either. Although in a war they would hold strong because of how many people they have but going to war would mean pissing off the entire U.N. which is pretty much the worlds strongest military governments under one reign.
