Taiwan: The New Definition of Responsibility

During an interview with CNN on Sunday, the Taiwanese president Ma Ying-jeou said that he would take full responsibility for the blunders and mistakes made during rescue efforts.

When asked the meaning, he defined “responsability” (Taipei Times) by:


finding out what was wrong with the rescue system, correcting the problems and disciplining officials in charge.


In other words, “it’s not my fault…”

In another related news, there was an online CNN poll yesterday.

82 percent of voters said yes to the question: “Should Taiwan’s leader stand down over delays in aiding typhoon victims?”

Are you surprised?
