There's a deeper and maybe not entirely unrelated history here that few scholars have examined, which is the special relationship between Taiwan and Paraguay (and other Latin American states) during the last two decades of the Cold War. /1

The perceived benefits may be rooted in the pursuit of a different form of recognition that Taiwan grants to small states—attention, esteem, and relational status—that goes beyond narrow material benefits.

As Taiwan rapidly began losing diplomatic recognition after 1971, it increasingly relied on Latin American military dictatorships for support, cultivating them through the World Anti-Communist League. This is an aspect of its "pragmatic diplomacy" that never gets mentioned. /2

Through the Political Warfare Cadres Academy (政工幹部學校) in Beitou (hotsprings and fascism -- what a combination!), the KMT provided military, police, and counterinsurgency training to these regimes and sought to install pro-KMT officers in militaries across Latin America. /3

You can read more about the Taiwan-WACL-Latin American nexus in
@DrKyleBurke
's fantastic book Revolutionaries from the Right and in journalists' Scott and Jon Lee Anderson's Inside the League (the first book I checked out from the library in grad school, I believe). /4

I'm not a Latin Americanist, but a quick search reveals that it's the same right-wing Colorado Party in power today as during the Stroessner era. I imagine that the continuities in its foreign policy are partly a function of continuities in personnel, i.e. ex-military types. /5

Anyway, back to Taiwan. My larger, self-serving point is that we can and should be historicizing the post-1949 KMT in the world beyond its relations with the US and China, as important as those are. If the PRC acted as a "new subsidiary communist hub" in E / SEA... /6

...to quote my friend Ang Cheng Guan, then ditto the ROC for anticommunism / counterrevolution as an ideology and, crucially, as the Latin American examples show, a form of political and military expertise. /7

Mexican case of this has been explored by Monica Naymich Lopez,
