Dear Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton,

The world, after we have done to it, is barely fit for a cockroach to live in. It gasps for air and is dying.

To state facts about the condition of mankind becomes hackneyed and boring, and we lose patience with bearing them. Not because they are not true, but because they are not real to us.

They seem to be things out of our control. The truth is simply that we are living in the most violent, reckless, and deadly era the world has ever known. And we, the human race, have chosen to be as blind as snakes, as stubborn as asses, and dumber than cows. As, we face the truth; it is so pity that Taiwan living in such kind of bad condition, even more worse than cockroach. Unfortunately; democratic Taiwan with "economic miracle" look like a sparkling chicken staying for "kitchen", isn't it ?

World history expressed a view; that the people of Taiwan just like their counterparts all over the world are entitled to the rights and freedoms set forth in the declaration of human rights adopted by the United Nation in 1948.

Regardless of any distinction made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which any individual person belongs.

Since its people truly aspire to regain their right of international representation the ROC government has an obligation to fulfill its mission of seeking U.N. membership, regardless of what foreign leaders, including the U.S. President, may say from time to time.

The U.N. cannot ignore the fact that due to the out-come of a civil war, China has been politically divided since 1949, with governments coexisting in Taipei and Beijing. Neither side has been subject to the other side's authority or rule ever since.

President Lee Teng-hui in 1992 declared, in the spirit of pragmatism, that the ROC's jurisdiction is presently limited to the areas of Taiwan, Penghu(Pescadores), Kinmen(Quemoy) and Matsu.

On the other hand; Beijing is only legally entitled to represent the people of the mainland, while it has absolutely no jurisdiction over the 21 million people living in the Taiwan area.

Putting all political considerations and disputes aside, the real "Taiwan issue" is how to restore the lawful rights of international recognition and participation in international activities to the 21 million people of Taiwan who are legally represented by the ROC government.

The 1996 election of President Lee, who became the first directly elected head of state on Chinese soil in the nation's 5000-plus years of history.

On the conclusion; ROC is a legal, democratic and sovereign country, it need your support.


Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
President of
