President’s Message 會長的話

10/10/2014

Dear All

It is such hypocritical that some Western leaders and media can be so openly supporting the illegal activities of these self proclaimed democrats in Hong Kong.

Let me ask them if any of these similar activities happen to be held by citizens in New York, or London, Sydney etc , will you still condone them and support them to the detriment of your countries and the democratic rule of law. I remembered USA few years ago, even sent army to evict their students when they only occupied their University administration Building and crippled the normal running of their University.

Hong Kong government and Beijing Central Government have been very very tolerant. If these people still insist on disrupting the rule of law and causing so much damage to the great majority of the people of Hong Kong and their livelihood, they reserve to be to arrested and put on trial for disrupting public order and fine them and release if they still defy order to clean up the mass and disperse. No violence should be allowed by the governments except reasonable minimal force be used during arrests if they resist. That is how the matured Western democratic governments will do to these same people who claimed they aspired to have a democratic government . It is a just way to do to protect the great majority of their citizens' well being. So I believe Hong Kong Government has the democratic right to formally give them plenty of warning to clean up and disperse or face arrest with court proceeding.

That is exactly what a matured democratic Governments in USA,UK, Australia etc will do. So do not be so hypocritical for those ( the western leaders and media )who supported these illegal activities in Hong Kong . Reasonable peaceful protests and sending in petitions and quietly dispersed after peaceful demonstrations without disrupting the way of life of the great majority of their citizens is the correct democratic way to go.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Democracy has to be nurtured and earned step by step.

Best wishes

港人争民主,该学学澳洲

发布时间: 2014-10-03 18:27:29 作者:蔡家声 来源:大洋时报 浏览次数:258 评论:3

这几天不少香港市民,包括大批年轻人上街示威,表达“民主普选”的诉求。

其实,如果回顾历史,就不难知道,在被英国殖民时期,香港根本没有一个“民主”选出来的“特首”,都是英皇指派的。

只是在香港回归中国之后,在“一国两制”的框架上,港人才终于享受到“和平协商、逐步渐进的民主”。香港的议员们都是市民直选出来的,特首选举也有一定的民主代表性,这比起被英国殖民时期强多了。

其实,民主是要有一个过程的。这一百年来,西方先进民主国家就是一步一个脚印,经过和平协商,逐步改革、改善起来的。

就拿澳洲为例吧。在沦为英殖民地之初,澳洲的普通民众根本没有选举权和被选举权,一人一票只是梦想。即便澳洲于1901年建国,澳洲土著也是在1962年才争取到正式选举权和投票权。但在此过程中,各方都有一个共识:坚决以和平协商、法治代替武斗、内乱。

当今的澳洲社会,已经成为文明民主选举的榜样,而这少不了几个必备的元素:法治要健全;执法要透明、健康;公民的教育素质、民主认知要达到法治的要求;公民要奉公守法。

就拿示威来说,澳洲经常出现街头示威,规模从几百到几万人都有,但示威者都会坚持和平协商,配合警方的治安要求,尽可能不损坏公共设施、不抢占政府办公地点和不破坏交通等;而且,在提交抗议书和表达意见后,他们就会自动和平解散。

而这种守法的示威,在西方民主国家相当普遍。世界各地最近为呼吁政府应对气候变化而掀起的大规模抗议游行,就是一个很好例子。

回头来看此前台湾学生抢占行政院以及此次香港学生誓言抢占政府办公地点,只能证明他们对民主的认知和运作是何其幼稚、天真、不成熟。笔者认为,他们还是先回学校补补真正的民主课吧

UPDATED: 11:48 PM, OCTOBER 3, 2014

Hong Kong is in a very unique and delicate position. It’s not a sovereign country. It’s one country, two systems. It’s never had elections all the years when the British ran it as a colony. When the British term ended, the arrangement with the Chinese was one country, two systems and some limited form of democracy in Hong Kong, gradually extending to direct universal suffrage ... So the governing law is Basic Law, the sovereignty is China and the geopolitical reality is that Hong Kong is now part of China. China wants Hong Kong to succeed and do well, and is prepared to go very far to help Hong Kong to succeed and do well but they don’t want Hong Kong to become a problem for them on the other side of the Shenzhen river in China. Absolutely not.
So the Hong Kong people have to make one country two systems work. They, as well as the central government in Beijing, have to do that jointly. It’s a delicate business where exactly does one country end and two systems begin. ... There’s always grey areas for interpretation. There will be issues which will have to come up from time to time, such as exactly how are you going to elect the chief executive. And these have to be resolved by Hong Kong and China but in a way which is in the interests of Hong Kong and which doesn’t hurt the interests of China and which is in accordance with the law and the Basic Law. ...
These are peaceful demonstrations that’s good. They’re not in Tiananmen, they are not in Zhongnanhai so that lowers the temperature but even then it’s a difficult situation for the Chief Executive and his team to manage and I’m quite sure there’s a large team on the Chinese side in Beijing watching this very very carefully. As long as it’s student demonstrators, and you are talking about Hong Kong matters ... Hong Kongers looking after Hong Kong. These are things which best of all Hong Kong can sort out for itself. But if other groups get involved and use this as a way to pressure China or to change China or, I read in the newspapers, that former activists from Tiananmen in 1989 have come to help the students. I don’t think they need such help. Or the students who were doing the Sunflower movement in Taipei also coming to compare notes — so teach you how to occupy something. I don’t think such help is in anyway helpful. I think that will only make things much more complicated.
But I wish them well. I was just there two weeks ago. They were concerned about this. But if you don’t move forward with the chief executive election rules then the status quo remains. It’s workable after a fashion but you have to ask yourself whether that’s the best outcome for Hong Kong.


Li Ka-shing, the successful business man of Hong Kong, wrote this article really well. Send this to all Chinese all over the world, including the protestors in Hong Kong and also to Editors of Newspapers/Media around the world!

The following article, which is written by Li Ka-shing, describes the current situation in Hong Kong really well. Li Ka-shing says:
“No matter what the mistakes the Communist Party of China have committed, no matter how much the Communist Party appeared to be corrupted, as a Chinese Communist Party's citizen, we should not make life difficult for the people for whatever reason. We must remember the ruling of China by the Communist Party is a history and is by choice.
At least for a long time till now, there is not a single party, whether from the prestige or ability standpoint that could govern our country and could have any power to replace the current Communist party. Furthermore, not to mention, the country led by Xi Jinping, the new central team, does give us hope and also lets us felt the positive energy.
A political party like a man, he might make a mistake, it could correct the error; he might get sick, he could recover. If we leave the Communist Party, China will be in chaos! If China is in a mess, we the people will suffer.
Recently many extreme articles appeared in the Internet, the goal is not to denounce the corrupt forces within the party, but the total negation of the Communist Party. The articles, ignored China's great achievements since the reform, yet targeted various Communist Party errors with coherent, detailed data & language subtlety and even the styles are similar, highly provocative and demagogic. Unlike the ordinary people to vent their discontent spontaneously, these articles are more like an organized and premeditated campaign. One cannot help but suspect what the political motives behind and with what the international background.
As we all know, China's rise has caused some international forces fear, the United States and Japan and some other countries are a deliberate attempt to suppress and block China to excel and progress. Their actual purpose is not to implement what is more universal advanced concepts, rather they consider only the interests of other countries. They make various plans, they contribute money and effort to cultivate the anti-communist hostile forces. Their only one real purpose, is to mess with China, separate China, so China's development will be in stagnation or retrogression, then later become their vassals. These tactics could allow them to dominate the world continuously.
Look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Egypt, they are the masterpiece of the United States act. These countries are messed up by the United States, so what their people get at the end? For the pro-American forces, do they really get the benefit?
My fellow citizens, open your eyes, look, do not easily be brainwashed, it should not follow the excitement, followed by booing, felt pride while being exploited. We are Chinese, we could not see a disaster in this country. If we have the opportunity to contribute to the country, we should try. If we could not afford to contribute to the country, then we at least try not to cause trouble to it, isn’t it true? If you mess up the country, we are in big trouble. For now, we can do at least, is do not say and do not spread any negative or irresponsible news that are not conducive to the stability in the country!” - Li Ka-shing.
Ladies and gentlemen, after reading this article, please try to pass it on.

Dear all

Japanese W11 Atrocity is still fresh in our mind. Less we forget.

The current Japanese Prime Minister Abe is not "an exemplary International Citizen" no matter how much Tony Abbott wishes to curry favour with him. He should at least take note of what Malcolm Fraser, Bob Hawke and John Howard's opinion. He should go back to learn the history of Japanese's atrocity during W11 including treatments received by Australian POW in Sandakan etc.

Tony Abbott should also join international friends of Japan including many Japanese citizens, telling Abe to follow the real " exemplary international citizen" i.e. German President HE Angela Merkel.

Japan should return the "disputed islands Senkaku or Diaoyu islands" back to China as promised after their surrender in 1945 and pay lots of compensation to China and other affected countries. Then the current conflict will be resolved immediately. The American President Obama should advice Japan to do likewise. We do not need an arm race in the Asia Pacific region. We certainly do not need a war to resolve the current conflict which is being blown out of proportion by Abe.

President of 80-20, U.S.A.


WANT TO HELP STRIKE A BLOW to create the “deterrent
effect
” that will prevent future derogatory depictions of people of
Chinese descent?


UNITE! Demand that FOX TV FIRE this talking head who on a
public broadcast said:


"The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
security of the U.S.
,” a talking head on FOX TV said on
7/10. "They have been, they will be and they can
wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just
did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a
bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do
computers and then they go back to China and hack
into us."


Click here to hear the racist xenophobic statement, expressed with
such hateful body language and hand gestures. He seems bent on
inciting a race war against Chinese. He had damaged grievously
the psychological, physical and career welfare of Chinese-Ams.


For such a serious offense, an apology is NOT enough.
He must be FIRED.


Clipper's owner Donald Sterling was banned from NBA for life and
forced to sell the team for his racial slur against black in a private
conversation.
This talking head called ALL people of Chinese
descent “the single biggest threat to the national security of the US”
and used a “C word” in a public broadcast!


America came down hard on Sterling, as it should. Why is my
country so silent on this talking head, Fox TV and Mr. Murdock??


80-20 shall never quit in this demand. We want this to be
the LAST such statements in major TV channels — establishing
a “deterrent effect”. Otherwise, frequent statements against
people of Chinese descent will occur. Our nation could become
so psychologically conditioned to implicitly and explicitly act
AGAINST the rightful interests of Chinese- and Asian-Americans.


We have a huge amount of tools ready to call this to Fox’s
attention. See Footnote 1.


For now, however, we’ll try REASONING. Please send email to
Roger Ailes, Pres. of Fox News Channel
roger.ailes@foxnews.com and Comments@foxnews.com .
Use your own words or state:


“Subject: Fire Beckel or I’ll boycott Fox


Fire Bob Beckel for the sake of ethnic harmony,
world peace and your own reputation. I'll NEVER
abandon this demand. If you do fire Beckel, I'll
remember and respect you for it. If you don’t,
I’ll help create a boycott of products of Fox
advertizers by Chinese people worldwide.
Your name, city and sate”


Do it now! This may not work. So start organizing your own
community and friends and get ready for a big and long battle.
Thank you.

A Strong Press Release
(7/22/2014) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Contact person: S. B. Woo 302-366-0259
Subject: Why the U.S. Media Treats Sterling & Beckel so Differently?
80-20 PAC, by far the largest Asian Am. political action committee, announced
today that it shall unite with all organizations, elected officials and individuals to
help achieve the goal of getting Robert Beckel fired by Fox. Beckel stated on
Fox TV “The Five” on 7/10/2014:
“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
security of the U.S.,” and used a “C word”.
Click here to hear his racist, xenophobic statement, expressed with such hateful
body language and hand gestures. He seems bent on inciting a race war against
the Chinese people.
Just several months ago, ABC reviewed a taped Jimmy Kimmel segment during
which a kid blurted out “kill all Chinese” and let it air? Will ABC do the same, if
the word “Chinese” was replaced by Blacks or Jews? Now Beckel, as a news
analyst, publicly stated the above.
The Chinese American community is determined to stop such statements against
us, once and for all. Otherwise, we’ll be like the Jews in Nazi Germany who
eventually faced a very hostile home community.
S. B. Woo, 80-20 President & former Lt. Governor of Delaware says, “We are fully
aware that the U.S. is not Nazi Germany. On the other hand, if such statements
can come against us again and again without severe repercussions to the
offender, then the Chinese- and perhaps East-Asian-Americans will suffer
psychologically, physically and career wise.”
Clipper's owner Donald Sterling was banned from NBA for life and forced to sell
the team for his racial slur against blacks in a private conversation.
In comparison, Beckel called all people of Chinese descent “the single biggest
threat to the national security of the US” and used a “C word” in a public
broadcast! ” Why is our media so quiet on Beckel?” Woo asks. “Where are the
Asian Am. journalists, for heaven’s sake?” [meaning those who work in the mainstream
media. Added by SB Woo]
People of Chinese descent worldwide are watching how fair the media in U.S.A. is.
Is the U. S. media using double standard for different races? (The end)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
How 80-20’s Call to Action & Press Release made a Difference!
The community has really responded. Thanks to them, the following has occurred
1) The MSN poll on whether Bob Beckel should resign was losing by a 30% to 40% 2
nights ago. This morning it is leading by 59% to 26%.
Click on http://specials.msn.com/more-polls.aspx
2) After the press release, CNN got in touch with S. B. Woo.
3) Chinese American residing in China have already gotten in touch with S.B.
They are also reaching out to Chinese-Ams in Hong Kong and Macau. All
of you can help reach people of Chinese descent internationally.
Help make this ugly anti-Chinese broadcast known INTERNATIONALLY.
What else YOU can do!
A) Continue to send email to Roger Ailes, Pres. of Fox News via roger.ailes@foxnews.com
and Comments@foxnews.com . Use your own words or state:
“Subject: Fire Beckel or I’ll boycott Fox
Fire Bob Beckel for the sake of ethnic harmony,
world peace and your own reputation. If you do,
I’ll remember and respect you for it. If you don’t,
I’ll stop watching FOX & choose CNN instead.
Your name, city, sate & TITLE.”

a swing bloc vote in presidential elections, thereby inducing both
major political parties to compete serving the rightful interests of the
APA community.
His past experiences include being the Founding President of the
Faculty Bargaining Unit at the University of Delaware, its Chief
Spokesman and Chief Negotiator; a Trustee of the University of
Delaware; an Institute Fellow at the Institute of Politics, the

To send an unmistakable signal of personal devotion - that his
mission in working to champion equality for all Asian Americans
through 80-20 has no personal gain or interest whatsoever - S. B. has
pledged never to run for a political office or accept a federal government
appointment for the rest of his life.




China presents an olive leaf to USA

http://news.yahoo.com/china-urges-u-more-objective-ahead-key-meeting-025355247--business.html
BEIJING (Reuters) - China and the United States need to "plant more flowers, not thorns" in their relationship and Washington needs to have a more objective view about China, state media on Thursday quoted President Xi Jinping as saying ahead of a key meeting.
Xi, speaking to former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson ahead of next week's China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue, said he hoped both countries could use such gatherings to keep "injecting positive energy" into the relationship.
"The two sides should expand common interests, deepen cooperation, plant more flowers, not thorns, clear the interference and avoid suspicion and confrontation," Xi was quoted as saying by the official China Daily.
China would stick to the path of peaceful development and shoulder its international duties, Xi added.
"We hope the U.S. will objectively view China's basic national conditions as well as its domestic and foreign policies," he said.
China and the United States, as the world's two largest economies, have close trade and business ties and work together on important international issues like North Korea.
But they also have deep differences, over everything from human rights to the value of the Chinese currency.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who will attend the Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing, said on Tuesday the yuan's value was a "very big issue" for the United States and that the currency needed to appreciate more.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is also attending, and will likely have to address Chinese concerns over what Beijing views as Washington's support for Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines over their territorial disputes with China.
China's increasingly assertive tone in the disputed East and South China Seas, as well as its rising military expenditure, have rattled nerves in the region and in Washington.

Dear Sir / Madam,


The Dragon Foundation is pleased to announce the Dragon 100 (龍匯100) 2014. It will take place from 11-18 October 2014 in Hong Kong and Taiwan, focusing on the theme of “Entrepreneurship & Social Innovation”. We would like to invite you to nominate participants who are outstanding potential Chinese leaders aged 18-35 with demonstrated leadership skills, an excellent academic record, talent in non-academic areas and a commitment to serve the community. The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2014.


The annual Dragon 100 Young Chinese Leaders Forum was initiated by the Dragon Foundation in 2002. Since then it has brought together 100 youth leaders of Chinese origin from around the world every year. Intended as a platform for sharing views and generating synergy, it provides stimulus for innovation, enthusiasm and commitment.


Entrepreneurship is all about innovation and creativity, which are major characteristics of young people. It is also a way to generate and promote economic growth. Thus entrepreneurship can be considered both a way of thought and of behaviour, in that it not only requires imagination and passion, but also specific traditional functions such as marketing and finance. The Dragon 100 – 2014 Programme serves as a platform for young entrepreneurs, both established, as well as the up-and-coming, to sit down and openly discuss the challenges and opportunities that face those seeking this particular pathway.


Programme factsheet and nomination form are enclosed, should you have further queries or require any more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Secretariat of The Dragon Foundation, by telephone: (852) 2811-2779, by fax: (852) 2811-2669 or by e-mail: info@dragonfoundation.net Further information may also be obtained at our website www.dragonfoundation.net


We look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Dear G7 Leaders,

It is Japan, causing tensions in the “East and South China Sea," when it nationalized those Diaoyu Islands in 2012 and by failing to follow those Cairo and Potsdam Declarations, no more, no less.

G7 stops short of endorsing Japan's anti-China rhetoric

Updated: 2014-06-05 14:41
BRUSSELS/BEIJING - Leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations fell short of endorsing Japan's anti-China rhetoric at a meeting in Brussels on Wednesday.

G7 stops short of endorsing Japan's anti-China rhetoric
China-Japan relations

"We are deeply concerned by tensions in the East and South China Sea," the leaders from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States said in a communique issued at the end of the first day of their talks in Brussels.

"We oppose any unilateral attempt by any party to assert its territorial or maritime claims through the use of intimidation, coercion or force," the G7 leaders said, without specifying any country.

Japan had reportedly pushed the G7 to single out China for the rising tensions in the East and South China Sea, hoping to apply international pressure on China in its territorial disputes with Beijing over the Diaoyu Islands.

In an earlier response to Tokyo's futile attempt, the Chinese foreign ministry reaffirmed the country's determination to protect its sovereignty and legitimate rights.

"China is firm and resolute in safeguarding the sovereignty and maritime rights and interests in the East China Sea and the South China Sea as well as national security," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters on Tuesday.

"I want to point out that on the East China Sea issue, it is not China but Japan who changes the status quo. It is Japan who snatched the Diaoyu Islands away from China by force over 100 years ago. It is also Japan who attempted to unilaterally 'nationalize' the Diaoyu Islands by violating the UN Charter, the Cairo Declaration, the Potsdam Declaration and other international laws," he said.

"Therefore it is Japan who should clean up its acts and correct its mistakes," the spokesman said.

"Meanwhile, we always hold the point that disputes should be managed and settled through dialogue and negotiation. We advise the Japanese side not to stir up troubles nor mislead the public opinion on international occasions."

The two-day summit hosted by the European Union (EU) focuses on Ukraine situation, ties with Russia, global economy and energy security, according to preliminary agenda unveiled by the EU.

Originally, a G8 summit was scheduled to take place in Sochi, Russia in early June under Russian presidency. At their meeting in The Hague, the Netherlands on March 24, the G7 leaders decided to meet in Brussels in June in the G7 format instead to protest the accession of Ukraine's Crimea region into Russia.

Dear all

The Shangri La Dialogue showed that US ganged up with Japan by ignoring the historical facts. Why US and other Western countries which fought the Nazi Germany so fiercely, conveniently trying to ignore what Nazi Japan have done to China, US and Asia during the World War 2. Japan has agreed to return all the lands they conquered from China, back to China and US supposed to be the referee to see to that. The US has now conveniently buried this part of the historical fact and ganged up with Japan and condones Japan to re-militarise to the detriment of a peaceful Asia and the world. I believe China has a strong case to argue through International Court of Justice. Those territories in dispute are in fact belongs to China historically and legitimately. I hope China will hire reputable international lawyers to fight for their case just like the Jews and start a whole ranges of compensation claims of war damages conducted by Nazi Japan during the second World War.

Dear President Obama,

I totally agree with Alice but also like your comment, please?

I would add that Japan and other countries who ignore those Declarations below must be Uncle Sam’s slaves.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

John Lee

President

New Cross-strait Alliance.


The US has given away its credibility in defending human rights when it keeps depriving the rights of Chinese people in defending their rightful lands including off-shore islands. Even a kid could figure out its ill and malicious intent.

The US President and Cabinet/Congressmen/Senate must stop burying their heads in the sand like ostriches; they should act as real men answerable and accountable to their conscience and the almighty God in upholding truth, justice, honesty and righteousness. If they fail to do that, they should henceforth back off and utter no word on the world political arena to make fools of themselves.

Regards,

Alice


Cairo Declaration - Text

The several military missions have agreed upon future military operations against Japan. The Three Great Allies expressed their resolve to bring unrelenting pressure against their brutal enemies by sea, land, and air. This pressure is already rising.

The Three Great Allies are fighting this war to restrain and punish the aggression of Japan. They covet no gain for themselves and have no thought of territorial expansion. It is their purpose that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the first World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa, and The Pescadores (are an archipelago off the western coast of Taiwan in the Taiwan Strait consisting of 64 small islands and islets),. Shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed. The aforesaid three great powers, mindful of the enslavement of the people of Korea, are determined that in due course Korea shall become free and independent.

With these objects in view the three Allies, in harmony with those of the United Nations at war with Japan, will continue to persevere in the serious and prolonged operations necessary to procure the unconditional surrender of Japan.[2]

Potsam Declaration -Terms of the Declaration

On July 26, the United States, Britain, and China released the Potsdam Declaration announcing the terms for Japan's surrender, with the warning, "We will not deviate from them. There are no alternatives. We shall brook no delay." For Japan, the terms of the declaration specified:[1]

· the elimination "for all time [of] the authority and influence of those who have deceived and misled the people of Japan into embarking on world conquest"

· the occupation of "points in Japanese territory to be designated by the Allies"

· "Japanese sovereignty shall be limited to the islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku, and such minor islands as we determine," as had been announced in the Cairo Declaration in 1943.[3]

Saturday marks the 69th anniversary of the issuing of the Potsdam Proclamation. The Potsdam Proclamation was issued on July 26, 1945 by the United States, Britain and China. It called for the surrender of all Japanese armed forces after Nazi Germany was defeated during World War II.

It stated that, if Japan did not surrender, it would face "prompt and utter destruction." The declaration is viewed as an ultimatum posed to the forces of fascism and an important document which helped establish international order after World War II. On August 15, 1945, the Japanese government accepted the proclamation and surrendered.

"As I understand it, the declaration requires that Japan would abandon all its conquests that it made in China.... Japan would become a demilitarized country," Terry Charman, Snr. historian at London Imperial War Museum said.


Dear Prime Minister Abe,

Congratulations to Mr. Stone’s speech which is very accurate therefore deserves respect.

On the contrary, it is very much regrettable that you want to continue to pay your respects to those (14) convicted Class-A war criminals today!

Oliver Stone’s Advice to Japan: Apologize

By Mitsuru Agence France-Presse/Getty Images

U.S. film director Oliver Stone speaks before press in Tokyo on August 12.

Film director Oliver Stone, who is no stranger to controversy, turned from his sharp attacks on the U.S. for the atomic bombings of Japan to criticize his hosts over their attitude to China and other Asian neighbors.

In a speech to foreign correspondents in Tokyo, Mr. Stone said that Japan needs to more completely apologize for its wartime acts, and said it should also resist a shift to relying on military might to deal with security challenges posed by its neighbors such as China and North Korea.

Japan’s leaders have expressed “deep remorse” over the physical damage and psychological pain the country has inflicted on other Asian countries, but repeated visits by cabinet ministers to a controversial war shrine in Tokyo and growing talk of revising the nation’s peace constitution have made other countries skeptical about the intention of these remarks.

He said that if Japan came out with a more forthright apology “that would make front-page headlines everywhere in the world.”

He added that Japan, which is locked in a territorial dispute with China over a small group of islands, should look more broadly at ties between the two countries.

“Don’t look at China as your enemy. Start seeing it differently. Start by apologizing to China for what you did in China and all the people you killed there,” Mr. Stone said. “Japan’s interest in the long-term could very much lie with China.”

Mr. Stone described Japan’s face-off with China over disputed territories in the East China Sea as like “some kid who goes out there and picks fights and then has got his big brother behind him to go clean up after him,” referring to the United States’ security obligations to Japan.

He argued that Japan should show leadership in resolving conflicts in a peaceful manner. “We want to see Japan playing a leading role in making this a more peaceful world by resolving the conflicts in the Pacific in a way that shows the vision of Japan,” he said. “Japan has a peace constitution and a commitment to nuclear non-resolution.”

Mr. Stone’s view is formed by his skepticism of power and his belief in political checks and balances. He went as far as to praise China for not handing over American national security leaker Edward Snowden to the United States. “I’m glad that China didn’t arrest him. At least China had the guts to stand up (to the United States) that way.”

The famous director is in Japan to promote his documentary series, “The Untold History of the United States,” which presents an alternative interpretation of the country’s history in the 20th century, challenging the narrative of America as an “underdog.” The series will be aired by Japan’s national broadcaster NHK.

The documentary includes discussion of the two atomic bombings. Peter Kuznick, professor of history at American University, who worked with Stone in the production of the documentary, said it was “a learning experience for both of us” to meet with the victims of the bombing, as well as historians and journalists in Japan. The documentary contends that the long-held assertions that the bombings were necessary to end the war are untrue and that other factors, such as the Soviet Union’s entry into the war against Japan was a strong factor in the country’s surrender.

“The more we see and the more we learn, the more troubling it is for us and the more we realize how important Japan’s coming to grips with its past is for Japan, but also for the United States and for the rest of the world. Japan and the United States are linked together in this web of deceit in which we both collaborate to tell lies about all of our history,” he said.


Dear Prime Minister Abe,

You will need a translator for you to understand the unconditional surrender by the Japanese government in 1945.

Abe's Article 9 blitz alarms Asia


My China's Dream


History teaches us that the best reform for a nation, is through peaceful transformation. It avoids violent confronation and civil wars among its citizens. This has been happening in all the advanced Western countries last 100 years or more. That is why they are ahead of China and those so-called developed and under developed countries which spent more time fighting and killing one another among their own citizens insteads of developing their countries.

I believe China under the current leadership can lead China to a better future despite all the imperfection China's system still has. Over 113 years of the founding of Commonwealth of Australia, the "White Australia policy" was only abolished 35 years ago. China only opens up to new ideas 35 years ago and Communist ruling party has transformed and modernise itself and China. It still has to open up to more check and balance and democratic governance including open, transparent rule of laws. It should allow all members of parliament to have their equal say whether they belong to Communist Party or other democratic parties' representatives as they are all equal Chinese citizens and nation's representatives. Selection of these representatives should be based on talent. merit and good character.

China has hopes for all, not just for Chinese citizens but for all overseas Chinese and other global citizens. Its development and achievement last 35 years and more to achieve in the coming years, will help to secure peaceful development for China and the rest of the world. We all will benefit from the peaceful transformation of China. My advice to those who promote the overthrown of Chinese Communist Party Government in China and outside China, should direct their energy to help China's peaceful transformation instead.

That is my "China's dream" for this century.

我的中国梦

历史教导我们一个国家的改革最好是通过和平改革,这就避免了公民之间的武力冲突和内战。在最近的一百多年来,在所有西方 先进文明的国家都出现过这样的情况。这是他们先进于中国和那些所谓的发展中国家. 而那些所谓的发展中国家花费许多时间打仗和相互残杀,而不是致力于发展他们的国家的原因,

我相信中国在当前的领导下能赢得更好的前景,尽管中国体制上尚有不完善之处。澳大利亚联邦已成立113年之久,直到35年前才废除了白澳政策。在35年之 前中国才实行开放政策,中国共产党这个执政党已经改进了自身和中国并使之现代化。它仍然必须有更多的开放、检查、制衡和民主治理,包括开放透明的法治。它 应当允许议会成员有平等的发言权,无论他们是否为共产党或其它民主党派的代表,因为他们是平等的中国公民和国家代表。选举这些代表必须根据他们的才能和品 格,任人唯贤。

中国有希望,不仅是中国公民的希望,也是所有海外华人以及世界人民的希望。在过去35年里中国的发展和成就以及在今后岁 月里更大的成就将确保中国和世界其它地区的和平发展。我们均会受益于中国的和平发展和改革。我劝告那些在中国国内外致力于推翻中国共产党的人士应当把他们 的精力用于帮助中国的和平改革.

这是我在本世纪的中国梦。

致以良好的祝愿。

From the Editor

The dispute of Senkaku or Diaoyui islands' ownership between China and Japan is concerning many people in Asia and around the world. On one hand Japan claims that she has the sovereignty over them because they have been under her legal administration since the end of World war 2. While China claims that they belongs to China from the historical perspective. Japan under the Peace Treaty at the end of World War 2, supposed to return the ownership of these islands back to China. But for some unforeseen circumstances, with the eruption of China civil war, China failed to claim them back formally from Japan.

Who actually owns this island is the burning issue.

We hope that it will be resolved one way or the other through peaceful negotiation. Failing that, we suggest that the case be decided in the International Court and tribunal. It is better that way than trying to fight it out militarily. It is not worth having the war to determine the ownership of these islands. As the destruction will be far worse than the benefit for either side. Moreover if a war is declared , its implication will be unmeasurable in term of its influence with the development of China and Japan. Its disastrous effect will not only affect China and Japan but will extend to all Asia countries and the world like Europe and US etc. No one is an island anymore. The war will bring enormous economic disaster, humanity hardship and suffering for many many people, not confined to the Chinese and Japanese.

Cover design for this issue was done by our webmaster James Yin. Thank you James.

Let us hope that the leadership of China and Japan are wiser than that.

钓鱼岛值得一争,但不值得一战

中国与日本由钓鱼岛引发的争端不断升级,大有一发不可收拾之势,有人说双方非打不可。因为双方继续固守各自的“强硬”立场,如有误判或意气用事,擦枪走火就极有可能。

日本与中国有千丝万缕的文化渊源,难道双方真的不能以文明之理来服人,一定要用“野蛮”的“武力”手段一决高下吗?

依笔者之见,退一步海阔天空,中日要重启理性对话的大门。即便真的谈不下去,也应该考虑让国际法庭来裁决。

如果国与国之间有什么争端不能解决,完全可以提交给国际法庭来和平解决。“法治”胜过“武治”,这应该是每一个有远见的 领导人都知道的道理。我们已经看到,在法治不健全的国家,企图用武力来统治的政权最终都引火自焚。叙利亚就是崇尚“武治”,把一个好好的国家弄得四分五 裂。

一个国家要长治久安,必须以法律来治国而不是以武力来治国,武力只能用来维护真理、惩罚犯罪的人。这是人类历史文明的基石。如果用武力来决定谁对谁错,那么胜者不一定是对的一方,而败者不一定是错的一方。这不但解决不了问题,反而会加深矛盾,搞得两败俱伤,都没有好结果。

中日如果开战,将影响整个亚洲甚至整个世界经济的命脉,世界第二和第三大经济国首当其冲,承受得起吗?

两国如果真的谈不好如何解决钓鱼岛的主权问题,大不了告上国际法庭,各自引经据典辩论公堂,看看最后真理在哪一方,哪一方才是钓鱼岛的真正主人。

我认为,钓鱼岛值得中日在国际公堂联合国主持下力争、理争,但不值得双方为之一战!

Dear Kasing,
This edition of the Huaren magazine is by far the best of any production I have seen globally.
Obviously, the standard of the magazine, as judged by the caliber of the authors and the content, is sophisticated and intellectual, has jumped leaps and bounds.
Please accept my personal congratulations to a publication, now in the leading edge of the Chinese Diaspora. Keep the standard up and keep it coming.
Congratulations, once again and well done.

The World’s Wartime Debt to China

By RANA MITTER

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/18/opinion/the-worlds-wartime-debt-to-china.html?_r=1&

Published: October 17, 2013

OXFORD, England ­ At the same time that China has stated its desire for peace in Asia, the country has been making assertive claims over waters in the East and South China Seas. The confrontational rhetoric suggests, to many observers (and to China’s uneasy neighbors in the Pacific region), a sense of pent-up entitlement, stemming from Beijing’s growing importance in the world.



.

But another, little-remembered factor is also at play: China’s lingering resentment that its contributions to the Allies’ victory against Japan in World War II were never fully recognized and have yet to translate into political capital in the region.

China’s resistance to Japan is one of the great untold stories of World War II. Though China was the first Allied power to fight the Axis, it has received far less credit for its role in the Pacific theater than the United States, Britain or even the Soviet Union, which only joined the war in Asia in August 1945. The Chinese contribution was pushed aside soon after the conflict, as an inconvenient story in the neat ideological narrative of the Cold War.

In the early 20th century China’s growing desire for national sovereignty rubbed up against Japan’s rising imperialism on the Asian mainland. War broke out in earnest in July 1937, and during the eight years that it lasted, both the Nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-shek and, to a lesser extent, the Communist fighters answering to Mao Zedong engaged in extraordinary feats of resistance.

Though far weaker and poorer than the mighty United States or the British Empire, China played a major role in the war. Some 40,000 Chinese soldiers fought in Burma alongside American and British troops in 1944, helping to secure the Stilwell Road linking Lashio to Assam in India. In China itself, they held down some 800,000 Japanese soldiers.

The costs were great. At least 14 million Chinese were killed and some 80 million became refugees over the course of the war. The atrocities were many: the Rape of Nanking, in 1937, is the most notorious, but there were other, equally searing but less well-known, massacres: the bloody capture in 1938 of Xuzhou in the east, which threatened Chiang’s ability to control central China; the 1939 carpet bombing of Chongqing, the temporary capital, which killed more than 4,000 people in two days of air raids that a survivor described as “a sea of fire”; and the “three alls” campaign (“Burn all, loot all, kill all”) of 1941, which devastated the Communist-held areas in the north.

These strains placed immense pressure on what by then was a weak and isolated country. But some of the Chiang government’s policies made matters worse. A decision to seize the peasants’ grain to feed the army exacerbated the 1942 famine in Henan Province. “You could exchange a child for a few steamed rolls,” one government inspector recalled in his memoir. Such missteps made the Nationalist (Kuomintang) government seem corrupt and inefficient, and an embarrassing ally for the United States ­ even though the Nationalists did the vast majority of the fighting against Japan, far more than the Communists.

When the Allies won in 1945, China’s contribution to the victory was rewarded with a permanent seat on the Security Council of the new United Nations, but little more. After a civil war, the Chiang regime fell to the Communists in 1949, and Mao had little reason to recognize its contributions to the defeat of Japan. China’s wartime allies also did little to remind their own people of its role in their victory: The Nationalist regime ­ which fled to exile in Taiwan ­ was an embarrassing relic, and the new Communist regime was a frightening unknown. For the West, China had gone from wartime ally to threatening Communist giant in just a few years.

One major consequence that remains of great relevance today is that the old enemies of Asia never struck a multilateral settlement of the sort that took place in the North Atlantic after 1945, with the formation of NATO and what has become the European Union. The United States’ decision to put China on the sidelines of the postwar world order it dominated has meant that China and Japan never signed a proper peace treaty. And it has meant that for many years Western historians treated China’s role in World War II as a sideshow.

But recently a new political openness within China itself has allowed a different picture of the war years to emerge. Chiang and Mao are long dead, and the Chinese government has been trying to claim a greater international role by reminding the world of the benefits of its past cooperation with the West.

Eager to eventually reunify the mainland with Taiwan, Beijing has also adopted a more favorable attitude toward Chiang’s legacy. Chinese filmmakers and academics now have license to talk more freely about the Nationalists’ wartime contribution, whether in television dramas or scholarly articles. A lengthy and sympathetic biography of Chiang by Yang Tianshi, a historian at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, has been a big seller on the mainland. Chiang’s old wartime villa outside Chongqing has even been restored as a shrine of sorts, with pictures and captions describing him as a patriot who stood firm against the Japanese ­ a rehabilitation of Chiang’s reputation that would have been unimaginable under Mao.

This revision of history has significant consequences for East Asia and Southeast Asia today. If America’s leadership in defeating Japan in 1945 continues to justify a U.S. presence around the Pacific today, Chinese leaders feel, why shouldn’t China’s contribution to the same goal earn it some clout in the region? Beijing is trying to cash in today a geopolitical check Chiang Kai-shek wrote nearly seven decades ago.

文明法治的规则

我们人类喜欢声称人类 文明在中国和其它地方已有五千年之久。然而,我们人类的历史向我们表明的并非如此。我们离我们作为一个世界大家庭或在当今21世纪许多国家内可以足以声称我们是文明 的还有一段路要走。当然有时我们能为我们生活在文明社会所达到的成就而引以为豪。然而,最后真正的人类文明仍然在被创造之中。什么时候生活在地球村大家庭中的我们能称我们自己是‘文明’的呢?一个文明的社会或国家应当符合以下基本准则:

  1. 一个社会/国家/世界应由一系列文明法治所支配,由为人民而建立,并由人民建立的属于人民的适当的执法机构 ,而不是为具体的统治集团或独裁者或为满足他们的思想、宗教统治、权力和贪婪而建立。
  2. 在这些文明法治下,他们不应参与任何国内战争或国与国之间的战争。所有的争端不应通过武装暴动或暴力镇压来解决。因此,任何政治集团不应使用合法的军队获取政权或夺权。该政权应当在人民手中,由人民决定,属于人民,并为人民而存在。政权的转换应当通过和平的方式。所有人类的争端必须通过对话、仲裁、公众辩论、讨论和协商的方式解决,如果仍不能解决的话,则应通过有代表性的法庭系统和文明法治规则解决。必须设立一个用于政权转换的选举代表机构和由公民参与作决定的制度。
  3. 在文明社会和国家外,任何国与国之间的争端必须如以上方式通过和平外交代表系统和联合国宪章,国际法庭解决。不得考虑诉诸任何暴力战争解决争端。对于掌权的人,无论权力大小,采用暴力解决争端以符合他们的利益是便利的作法颇具引诱力。必须有文明法治规则能推迟、制止或防止他们企图如此行事。我知道说来容易做时难,但是我们如果具有适当的计划和执法机构便能做到。

令人难过的是看到东西方的从政者企图解释他们采用暴力战争的“功效”以证明其行动是正当的。最近“反恐”战争的例子是至关重要的。从人类文明的角度来说,宾 拉登和美国总统奥巴马均属同一范畴,归入不完美的领袖。我可以提供许多其它的例子来证明我前面的说明是正确的。人类文明仍然在进化形成中,因为我们还在文明法治规则之外相互残杀。

这是一个对于史学家显而易见的例子,但是很多掌权人却不能认识到,因为权力的诱惑太强了!很不幸的是我们必须反复指出人类的软弱性和他们的失败。在阿富汗、伊拉克、利比亚、中东、柬埔寨、和泰国等互相残杀都不能根本解决问题。同样,杀了宾 拉登或总统布什也不会解决宗教和不同思想意识之间的争端。它只能极化和恶化事态。上个月我访问了柬埔寨杀人现场和‘博物馆’。确实波尔波特政权应对杀人负责,但是它的根源在于印支战争中所造成在印支地区不稳定的政治局势。这最终导致产生杀人场所,不仅在柬埔寨有,在越南、老挝、北朝鲜、和中国等都存在。最终的分析归结为政治领袖的无知,他们下令轰炸和杀人导致成千上万的生命丧失,损坏无数的基础设施和制造了在世界各处颠沛流离的数百万难民极端的痛苦。我们称自己为‘文明’人类应当引以为耻。因此我认为:建立一个将给予我们所有的人,而不仅仅给予我们中的某些人,真正的人类文明,在此文明中创造平等、博爱、自由、公正和对人类幸福的追求,距此目标我们仍然有一段路要走。

我们‘文明’的民众对奥巴马和许多其他世界性的领袖在他们掌权后抱有很多希望,因为他们声称他们希望给他们的人民、社会、国家和他们的地球村大家庭带来和平、繁荣、公正、平等和和谐。我们仍然在等待,我希望我们无须再等待另外的5000年了。1215Magna Carta大宪章的精神为在西方社会的文明法治规则设定了节奏。在中国,孔子和其他哲学家已经在很久以前就如此行了。在此之后,在世界的某些地区,我们在人类‘文明’方面已经取得了巨大的成就和进展,这些地区具有相对的和平、稳定、繁荣、公正、平等与和谐。它证明我们有知识可以如此做到。然而,我们的政治领袖仍然缺乏勇气履行会领导我们达到一个真正的‘文明社会和地球村大家庭’我们认识该作的事情。我们具有我们人类经验的综合性智慧以及引领我们的知识,例如美国独立宣言、联合国人权宣言和义务以及孔子的大同篇,综合的人类哲学以及基督教、伊斯兰教和佛教等的智慧。

我要对我们的政治领袖提出一个挑战:对美国总统奥巴马、中国的胡錦涛主席、俄罗斯总统梅德韦杰夫、印度总理辛格博士、联合国秘书长潘基文、欧盟主席及其领导人、澳大利亚、日本、朝鲜和东盟领导人和其他称职的政治领袖努力思考如何在他们的国家和地球村建立一个真正的没有战争和难民的文明社会—这是颇具挑战意义的。待到你们能够达到此文明治国的目标,我则无须多言了!过去的已成过去,无法挽回。然而将来仍然在我们手中。

在此我衷心对所有现代战争中的受害者和等待获救的难民们致以最良好的祝愿。
