Dear Mr. Trent Lott,
Mr. Denny Hastert,
In spite of missiles threat to Asia from mainland China, an official
Chinese newspaper yesterday (Jan. 27, 1999) warned of an
unprecedented setback in relations with the United States
if Taiwan is included under an Asia-pacific missile defense umbrella.
"Should the United States bring Taiwan into its proposed anti-missile
scheme? Sino-U.S. relations would suffer a setback unprecedented
since the normalization of bilateral ties." the China Daily
reported, quoting international affairs analysts in Beijing. The
proposed Theater Missiles Defense system (TMD) is and "extension
of efforts to contain China military" said Jian Taojie, a researcher
with the center for peace and development studies.
"By bringing Taiwan in, the U.S. would forge a de(facto military
alliance with Taiwan." said Ouyang Liping, an expert on global
arms control with the China institute of contemporary international
Sa Benwang, a senior analyst on Sino-U.S. relation with the China
Institute for International Strategic Studies, said the
TMD system would add fuel to separatist attempts for Taiwan independence.
He said that it will also "encourage Japan's
ambitions for military expansion".

to Taiwan or including the island in the U.S. anti-missiles systems,
saying it would be "absolutely unacceptable".
On the other hand; we are threatened by mainland China that would
be "absolutely unacceptable". Beijing warned other countries
with its powerful weapon and ambitious expansion of its benefit.
Beijing authorities blasted the U.S. decision to boost spending
on anti-missile systems, calling it a "dangerous more"
On contrary; what's communist China doing in Asia is "security"
or "stability" to Asia's countries? Communist China needs
Democratic Taiwan is a "peace-maker". We need your help
