Dear Mr. Trent Lott,
Mr. Denny Hastert,
The reports from Newsweek (Jan. 11, 1999) the burden of history
poses a special problem for China's rulers. This year brings some
round-number anniversaries that may stir unrest the Tiananmen massacre
(10 years), the Tibetan uprising (40 years) and the establishment
of the People's Republic (50 years).
Already, Jiang is feeling pressure from party hard-liners, led
by Li Peng, the former Prime Minister who now chairs the National
People's Congress. Li, who played a major role in the Tiananmen
crackdown, recently told a German newspaper that this rise of a
political opposition would invite "chaos" comparable to
that of the cultural revolution. The advocates of democracy argue
that Li has it backward.
Was Beijing overreacting to the challenge from political activists?
On the other hand; the "one country, two systems" is
not working for Taiwan, because the "one country"
not means to mainland China. Beijing must face the problems of democratic
tendency over whole Chinese people. One country is a democratic
country, under one system of democratic way.
It is of no use for an old Chinese saying --- "killing the
chicken to scare the monkey" --- may explain the crackdown
on dissidents. Economic problems have made the regime particularly
fearful of unrest.
An estimated 1.7 million Cambodians died of execution
ill-treatment, starvation, or disease during the 1975-1979 Khmer
Rouge revolution, but none of its leaders has ever been brought
We surprised Prime Minister Hun Sen had allowed them to return to
the sanctuary of an area run by former comrades.
Out of reason; the Beijing supported Hun Sen's decision. It is
a weakness of voice from the top U.N. human rights official for
Cambodia held out hope on Saturday (Jan. 9, 1999) that Khmer Rouge
leaders could be brought to account for crimes against humanity.
On Dec. 30, a special House panel unanimously adopted a 700-page
report concluding that the sharing of satellite missile, and military
expertise had harmed U.S. national security. PRC, ambassador Li
Zhaoxing lashed out at what he called "a few people
here who --- I don't know why --- don't want to see the steady development"
of Sino-American relations. "They are trying to find a new
enemy". "They are making up fallacies about a China threat.
China has never threatened anyone" he said in
a speech at the national press club.
Beijing never said repentance for its mistakes; those who criticized
Beijing's wrong, are belonging to the groups of "new enemy"
only. That's very clearly; democratic China is the only
way for world's peace.
