Dear Mr. President Clinton,
   Mr. Prime Minister Tony Blair,
   Mr. Prime Minister Massimo D'Alema,

U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, previewing NATO's 50th anniversary, yesterday (April 7, 1999) said the Kosovo operation presages the new non-territorial missions the alliance will conduct next century.

Two weeks before leaders of the 19 NATO counties meet in Washington to chart their future course, Albright gave a spirited defense for the allied air campaign against Yugoslavia. She also looked beyond the conflict, saying once the fighting ends, "our explicit goal should be to transform the Balkans from the continent's primary source of instability into an important part of the European mainstream."

Albright made her remarks in a speech to the Brookings institution, a Washington-based think tank. It was supposed to focus on alliance plans to build a "new NATO for a new century" but came to be dominated by the Kosovo crisis. "The NATO of the 21st century is being tested now before the new century even begins."

In one recent speech, Gore described Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic as an evil dictator and war criminals. "This dictator is perpetrating just horrible acts against these innocent women and children as well as men ... This man is evil and we need to call it by its right name." Gore said. "Do we want the 21st century to be defined by men wearing black ski masks who knock on doors in the middle of the nights and herd innocent women and children onto railroad cars while they kill the men?" the Vice President added.

In the view of history; when the chaos of our world was coming, the democratic countries need build their power to keep the order of our world. A strong and stouthearted leaders would handle the peace of our would. We support Albright and Gore.

Washington, April 7 -
Clinton defending the U.S. decision to bring a resolution condemning mainland Chinese abuses at the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva, said the issue was "an interest that cuts to the heart of our concern about China." Saying WTO membership is "not a favor to China," Clinton urged U.S. support for Beijing's membership in the global trade body on the right terms. "If China accepts the responsibilities that come with WTO membership, that will give us broad access to China's markets while accelerating its internal reforms and propelling it toward the rule of law," he said. "The bottom line is this; if China is willing to play by the global rules of trade it would be an inexplicable mistake for the United States to say "No," he said.

In our views, those who violated the human rights are always saying like that ...

Cambridge, April 6 ---
"Sooner of later, the United States will try to have mainland China "Yugoslavized," several Harvard University students from mainland China have said. In a informal discussion Sunday evening on the April 6-14 visit to the United States by Zhu Rongji, communist China's Premier, a dozen or so mainland students strongly criticized NATO and America's bombing of Yugoslavia as "violating Yugoslav sovereignty and interference in Yugoslav internal affairs," and NATO was "an instrument of Washington," they said. Their opinions provide a glimpse of how the mainland Chinese elite view the world and particularly the U.S..

In our views, a country was violating the human rights is not to be called a "real country"; without limitation of human rights even country's law is the key point of the democracy. Harvard's students as saying Kosovo crisis as violating Yugoslav sovereignty and interference in Yugoslav internal affairs, ... is deteriorating democratic principle.

It reminded of me that, Pope John Paul II kissed the foot of a priest, one of 12 priests whose feet are washed and kissed by the Pope in a service commemorating Christ's gesture of humility toward his apostles on the night before he died. Please listening from Saint ... "Maybe in our family we have somebody who is feeling lonely, who is feeling sick, who is feeling worried. Are we there? Are we willing to give until it hurts, in order to be with our families? Or do we put our own interests first?" Mother Teresa of Calcutta said.

Yours Sincerely,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
