Dear Mr. Vice President Al Gore,
   Mrs. Madeleine Korbel Albright,
   Mr. Trent Lott,

Freeman wrote that U.S. arms sales to Taiwan no longer "boost Taipei's confidence that it can work out its differences with Beijing" and called for reduced arms sales to Taiwan. He said Taiwan independence is likely to lead to war in the Taiwan Strait and recommended the U.S. reconsider its arms sales policy to Taiwan.

It is very pity for Freeman fail to see clearly the components of the reunification process. Cross-strait dialogue only depend on Taipei as an powerful partner in Talks. That Freeman's approach would create insecurity in Taiwan, reward Beijing's military intimidation and undermine Washington's regional strategy for promoting democracy, peace and stability.

Let Beijing more relaxation for oppressing Taipei subsistence, can't make communist China to be a democratic country. In the history of our would, only equal power would dialogue with equal position.

From WWI to WWII, who spoke loudly?

We urge Washington to support greater international participation, and support its bid for membership in the world trade organization.



Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
President of
