2.Letter to Smith

February 14, 1998

The Honorable Senator Smith

Dear Senator Smith:

The undersigned, the Chinese students and scholars organized into the dissident groups on exile,

are in full support of the great efforts of American People under your leadership in promoting

the human rights in communist China. We are in full support of the Congressional Resolution

HR 364 under your sponsorship.

China under the totalitarian-communist regime has been, and still is the world's darkest corner

where the most horrifying anti-humanity crimes have been, and still being, committed in the

entire history of mankind. According to the Black Book of the World Communism, the Chinese

communist dictators have murdered more than 46 million peaceful civilians during the time of

peace, dwarfing the records created by Adolf Hitler during the war time. Communist China, the

so-called "strategic partner of the U.S.", is the world record creator in human rights violation. It

may also be noticeable, even though many have already forgotten, it is the Communist China, not

Russia, not Cuba, even not Iraq, which claimed the greatest number of American soldiers during

the two major wars in Korea and Vietnam after WWII. If the totalitarian China is not sterilized

through an institutional democratization, this evil regime armed with ICBM of multi-nuclear

warheads and U.S. dual-use technology and hard currency from the entire West, aiming at

nobody, but the United States, will impose a ten-times greater threats than Adolf Hitler Joseph

Stalin and Sadam Hossein in the visible future. While the later have never received such a

constant, tremendous financial and technology supports from the free world, making the 1947

Marshall plan a tiny toy.

We have all witnessed, as a nation of 5000-year of civilization, China once contributed Four

Great Inventions to mankind: Fire Powder, Paper Milling Technology, Printing Technology and

Navigational Compass. The Chinese totalitarians, however, have brought fifth and sixth Grater

Invention to the human race: Torturing prisoners in front of the coerced public and snatching

(alive in many cases) human organs for nasty trading; and massive infantcide during its state

organized violent abortion of viable fetus during the third trimester.

Ironically, a regime of such a human rights records has never been morally condemned by the

UN human rights resolution in front of the forum of the United Nations. Any efforts leading to

that direction have always been successfully blocked by such a regime and its messy allies and

sympathizers. While the widely plagued betrayal of our higher value of freedom and human

dignity are of the fashion of the today's visionless politicians and business community, you and

your distinguished colleagues are leading the American People to stand up to say no in front of

the reviving force of the world communism, the number one evil of all mankind. We deeply

admire your great moral courage as well as your visionary mission to lead the efforts to urge the

U.S. Delegation to have the Human Rights Resolution passed in the 54th United Nation's session

this year.

We believe that Peoples living under the Chinese Totalitarian regime will never forget your

great commitment in the unrelenting struggle for their inalienable human rights during the

darkest period of Chinese history. Thank you very much.

Sincerely yours,.
