China and the United Nations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you don't even know the difference between the ROC and the PRC, how can you even begin to discuss China's actual place in the world in the 1970s? Here's a simple fact: The Chinese economy in the 1970s was crippled in 1971. It was not an economic powerhouse because Mao's cultural reform had completely destroyed any hopes of economic prosperity. Nixon went over there DURING that time, right after, guess what changes and what doesn't? China continues to have no real political freedoms for most of the 20th century, and in turn, it's economy grows to unprecedented heights. Today, these economic freedoms have shown to have some impact given the recent Hong Kong/Mainland demonstrations. Do you believe that would have happened just 25 years ago?Republic of China (ROC) was a charter member of the United Nations and one of five permanent members of the Security Council until 1971.
Lmao,Also leading with the largest population and size of army did indeed make it a world power. In fact it was 1971 when the seat was converted from the Republic of China to the People's Republic of China. Nixon negotiated with the later, not the former.
Also that pesky nuclear capable nations thing figured prominently into it's place as a world power.
Doesn't matter one iota in this discussion as wrong as you are. The sanctions have indeed hurt the dictatorship.

I'm sure the Castros are hurting with a billion dollars in the bank, and a 50 year old dictatorship in play that you wish to see unchallenged.
