Dear Mr. Trent Lott,
        Mr. Denny Hastert,

China on Wednesday (Jan. 13, 1999) rejected a US request for access to a boy spiritual leader designated by the Dalai Lama and said it regretted remarks on human rights by US secretary of state Madeleine Albright.

A Chinese official added that if the United States pressed for a resolution critical of China in the U.N. Human Rights Commission this year, it could damage bilateral relations and jeopardize a human rights dialogue that resumed this week. On the other hand; China mainlander needn't human rights, because Beijing's domination is stability always.

On Albright's remarks, spoken in her toast at a reception on Tuesday (Jan. 14, 1999) evening she said "It's a regrettable event." Albright told her hosts that peaceful political expression was not a crime or a threat." "We are profoundly distressed by the unjustified prison sentences recently imposed upon a number of Chinese who tried to exercise that right" she added.

"A commander who does not understand the plots and schemes of the princes cannot enter into alliances with them." "He who is not familiar with different topographical features of mountains and forests, hazardous defiles, marshes and swamps cannot conduct the march of an army." "He who does not hire local guides cannot gain a favorable position for battle." Sun Tzu said that.

Sun Tzu (the art of war) is the most famous work on military operations in ancient China, being the oldest military treatise in the world. It is one of the greatest cultural legacies of the Chinese nation. Sun Tzu said : What is war ? It may be described as one of the most important affairs to the state. It is the ground of death or life of both soldiers and people, and the way that governs the survival or the ruin of the state. So we must deliberately examine and study it.

In our view; Beijing authorities hasn't learn much for the meaning of human rights. We hope U.S. launch the right's power for justice of human rights.

God blesses you.

Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
