I guess they might also claim that Irish struggle to re-unify the Counties 
is a result of "Great Irish Chauvinism".

I must quote Trotsky on this:

"The British socialist who fails to support, by all possible means, the 
armed uprisings of colonial peoples in India, Egypt and Ireland, deserves to 
be branded with infamy, if not with a bullet."

Yeah, he doesn't mention China, but this is a principle.

The imperialist country socialist that doesn't support the continued armed 
struggle on the part of the PRC to liberate Taiwan from the imperialist 
protectorate deserves to be branded with infamy, if not a bullet.

That is the bottom line.
