Dear Mrs. Madeleine Korbel Albright,

Former U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger criticized U.S. President Bill Clinton for selling out Taiwan in an article be wrote in the latest issue of Forbes magazine.

According to the article the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act only states that the U.S. "acknowledges" that there is only one China, and that Taiwan is a part of China.

But Clinton's declaration, made without prior approval from the U.S. congress, has unilaterally ceded to Beijing's policy, which demands that Washington must not support Taiwan independence, or "two Chinas" or "one China, one Taiwan" or "Taiwan's membership of international organizations" in which statehood is a requirement, he charged.

He said Clinton fooled Taiwan and used a two handed approach---denying any U.S. policy change on Taiwan while actually seeking to sell out Taiwan's interests.

Weiberger, now the President of Forbes magazines, said Clinton must understand that Taiwan is a joy freedom of speech and religion, and direct elections. He emphasized that the people of Taiwan have the right to self-determination, and the U.S. is not entitled to play the role of spin doctor for the island.

Chinese communists renounce the use of force against Taiwan. The "three no's" encouraging Beijing to violate the Taiwan Relations Act whenever it wishes. It may also serve as a hint to Beijing that the U.S. will adopt a hands-off attitude even if mainland China decides to invade Taiwan.

It said,"'which has seriously infringed on China's national sovereignty (Taiwan is sovereignty also) and want only interfered in the nations affairs".

Who give mainland China rights to use military force against Taiwan, if Taiwan declared independence? Who is the really state of "direct election" or "human rights" and "democratic sovereignty"?

It is unfortunately to find out the feeble U.N. with useless laws of universe, has no effect to world's peace.

Where to find the justice? The answer is that, the strongest country-U.S. can keep on Taiwan's democracy.

On above reasons; we need your help.



Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
President of
Taiwan Tati Cultural
And Educational Foundation
