One of Senator Hillary Clinton's Asia policy advisers quit her presidential campaign several days ago, complaining that the candidate was engaging in "gratuitous China bashing."[1] And, in fact, the Senator has of late been engaged in a jeremiad on China.[2]


American Companies, Taiwan, and U.S. Anti-boycott Law

HERITAGE FOUNDATION WEBMEMO #1962

The recent news that China threatened Boeing Aircraft because of the company's dealings with Taiwan only sharpens the sense of cynicism prevalent among critics of the Bush Administration's China policy, but China's actions raise a more pressing question: Are U.S. firms that heed China's warnings about conducting business with Taiwan in violation of U.S. anti-boycott law?

Unpublished - Event Introduction for “China’s Tibet? Autonomy or Assimilation” by Warren Smith

 As we enter the 50th year of China’s occupation of Tibet and the Dalai Lama’s exile, American policy-makers and legislators have been under pressure – from congress, from human rights groups . . . from me, whatever good that is . . . to look at China’s policies in Tibet and . . . China’s policies toward its other large minorities, Uighurs, in particular . . .

071808 - 譚慎格:美凍結對台軍售 違反台灣關係法
2008-07-18

 華府兩岸問題專家譚慎格今天發表專文指出,美國政府凍結對台灣的防衛性武器軍售,違反國會通過的台灣關係法,且軍售決策必須基於「台灣的需要」、而非「中國對美國的外交壓力」。他也質疑,台灣正與中國協商,需充分的軍事力量做後盾,布希政府卻在此刻凍結對台軍售。

 美國太平洋軍區司令吉亭上將昨天應邀在華府著名保守智庫「傳統基金會」演說。吉亭「證實」了美國行政部門當前確有「凍結」對台軍售,但吉亭也說,他不能替國務院或白宮國安會闡述這個政策。

 吉亭還說,美國不會做任何破壞台海穩定的行動,他相信,做出決策的美國官員有整體考量了台灣與中國當前軍力現況與戰略,從而認為當前沒有出售武器給台灣的迫切性與強制性。

 傳統基金會學者譚慎格今天上午立即發表一篇文章,對吉亭的說法有所批判。他說,布希政府的確凍結對台軍售,而台灣與不民主的中國正在進行重要協商程序以降低台灣海峽緊張的時刻,美國卻選在這個時刻凍結對台軍售。
