We must face the darkest hours to see the dawn

The following is the statement yours truly would have delivered to the Lincoln Memorial (Washington, D.C.) rally on March 12 if I had been able to attend.

Today, we gather to express our outrage at the Sujiatun prison camp, so bravely exposed by the Japanese reporter, "Mr. R." The existence of this camp shocks us all, but it should surprise no one.

With 6,000 victims, the murder at Sujiatun does not yet compare with Auschwitz, Treblinka, or the Gulag Archipelag, to say nothing of the Mao's Great Leap Backward and the Cultural Revolution. However, the same combination of evil, contempt for human life, and assembly-line efficiency that fueled the death camps of the Nazis and the Soviets is there in Sujiatun. For this, the Chinese Communist Party must be treated as the pariah and enemy of humanity that it truly is.

However, the Communists have not limited their victims to Sujiatun, or even to Communist China. Their willingness to coverup the extent of SARS in 2003 allowed the disease to spread around the world. Today, we now know what we have long suspected: the Communists repeated this coverup with bird flu. The ramifications of that still have yet to be suffered.

Finally, but certainly not least of all, we have now seen the long arm of the Communist regime inflitrate the United States itself. The attack on Yuan Li, the numerous break-ins against Epoch Times staffers and officers, and now, possibly, the assassination of Allen Leung. While we do not yet no for certain why Mr. Leung died, it is quite plausible that he has become the first Communist casualty on American soil, and a frightening escalation of the Communists' plans to silence and intimidate the overseas Chinese people, in San Francisco, here, and around the world.

Yet, despite, all of this blood, despite this collection of horror and outrage, we gather here not in despair, or anger, but with hope; for we know that these grotesque actions are not signs of strength, but of desperation. They are not the actions of a secure regime, but of a regime well aware it is in a race against time, and that it is losing.

We know this because we know the truth about the "new socialist countryside." We see the verdict the Chinese people have given the regime in Hanyuan, Taishi, Shanwei, and throughout the rural interior. We know that the Nine Commentaries have not only led more than one in every eight Communists to leave the party in disgust, but by that number alone, they have reached one in every 150 Chinese citizens. This means the Nine Commentaries has reached every village, every farm collective, and every high-rise apartment complex in Communist China. The truth is not only out there, it is everywhere.

This is why the Communists are killing their own people; it is why the Communists are working with the terrorist regimes around the globe: the Iranian mullahcracy, Saddam Hussein, the Taliban, the Assad family, and al Qaeda itself. The Communists know they must destroy the democratic world before the truth destroys them. It is the only card they have left to play.

We in the democratic world must recognize this, and act accordingly. In order to defeat the Chinese Communist Party, we must isolate it, contain it, and undermine it. With the Nine Commentaries spreading faster than a Harbin chemical spill, the third plank is already in place. However, we must still isolate and contain the regime if we are to defeat and survive it.

By isolating the regime, I mean we must sever the economic ties that the Communists use to damage our economies and fatten their own pockets. That means an end to Permanent Normal Trade Relations. Normal Trade implies a normal government. The Chinese Communist Party, with organ harvesting killing camps, hidden epidemic victims left to die, and an unrivaled record of support for terrorists and other anti-American regimes, is many things; normal is not one of them.

This also means the regime cannot be allowed to enjoy the propaganda bonanza that is the 2008 Olympic Games. The Games must be moved out of Communist China, or barring that, the democratic world must boycott them in favor of its own, Communist-free competition. The values of Lenin, Mao, and Jiang Zemin are completely incompatible with those of the Olympic spirit.

Finally, this means the democratic world must be prepared to stand together against the Communist menace. The Bush Administration has started well here, by rebuilding the alliance with Japan, and creating a new one with democratic India. From these alliances, a ring of freedom including South Korea and Taiwan can not only surround Communist China and protect the rest of the democratic world, but it can also serve as a constant beacon to the Chinese people, an endless reminder that liberty need not only be ours, but can be theirs too. This three-part strategy - isolation, containment, and undermining - can lead to a free China.

I know many of you have heard the motto: it's always darkest before the dawn. My friends, the dawn of freedom is coming to China, but first, we must get through the dark hours together. The democratic world and the Chinese people must rely on each other, build upon our own strengths, and remain vigilant against our common enemy: the Chinese Communist Party. If we do, we will indeed see the end of that regime, and China will take its rightful place in the democratic world.

So from Sujiatun to San Francisco, let us take these outrages for what they are: the dangerous but desperate flailings of a dying regime. However, let us also remember that with each day that regime limps along, more people will die. Thus let us add not anger, but urgency to our mission; let us not despair, but double our efforts to bring freedom to China, security to America, and peace to the globe.

Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the American and Chinese peoples.

DJ,
re "Today, we now know what we have long suspected: the Communists repeated this coverup with bird flu."

Ever since the 1997 outbreak of avian flu H5N1 originated from Red China causing Hong Kong to kill 1.5 million of chickens, I have suspected that all these deadly
viruses crossing the species barrier from animals to humans are not natural evolutionary mutation but artificial as a result of CCP's bioweapon research and field tests. Remember SARS a few years ago and the pig flu (last year?)

According to Boxun blog, 10 young men who reported bird flu with actual samples collected in Qinghai province to WHO officials in Beijing were eventually executed after CCP bribed WHO officials enough to betray them and to surrender all evidences.

Only a murderer will commit further murders in order to cover up the first murder. A potential murderer will not kill to cover up a death that is not his doing.

Remember what General Chi Hao-tian and Zhu Cheng-hu (grandson of Marshal Zhu De) said about conquering USA with bio-chem weapons instead of nuclear lest they will find America lay waste?

As evil as CCP is, it should be deemed guilty on any trace of evidence unless it can prove otherwise.

China is not as bad as everyone make it out to be. I've been there, have you?

Here is more news that has since aired on the authenticity of the allegation:

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,18669046%255E7583,00.html

"Initial investigations by researchers for a US congressional committee have identified the site at Sujiatun as a hospital, where it is suspected organ harvesting occurs but on nowhere near the scale claimed"

Now, if there is no concentration camp, rather isolated instances of abuse and irregularity contrary to Chinese law, then there exists a very different reality than what's alleged.

The congressional committee on International relations, Asia Pacific subcommittee has been contacted. However they seem to be unwilling to help. It may be our government's wish to remain ambiguous on this issue.

My opinion is if this allegation is false, we need to make that clear, so we in the West can not be accused of allowing our ambiguity to be exploited for some nefarious, well-timed, political indictment.

Looks like efforts may be needed to make FOIA request to congressional committee. Private citizens without substantial resource and time will likely meet a lost cause.

There are also many questionable issues surround this allegation:

- Many details about the alleged camp site appears to be lifted from the hospital website's About page, including the alleged number of victims, 6000, which is part of the admission statistics published by the hospital in 2005 (2nd paragraph of About page).

- Hong Kong newspaper TaKungPao investigated the allegations and came up empty:
1) Reporters visited the hospital; the only underground structure found is the septic tank:

2) Reporters contacted Lanzhou University, but alleged arrested students' names do not exists in student registry:

- It appears the surprise discovery of an underground tunnel built by japanese army during 1905-1920 period, back in August 2005 could be the inspiration for this twist of fact.

The tunnel was sealed up by the Japanese then and unknown until it was discovered by a photographer from the 918 WWII museum working in Sujiatun.

http://news.sohu.com/20050812/n226651351.shtml

When it was discovered in 2005 the tunnel was half *under water*, above link has a picture of it so everyone can get a good idea how this tunnel can, before its discovery in 2001, hold 6000 people, plus an army of skilled transplant surgeons, nurses, 500-700 jail guards - equipment, rations, and supplies for nearly 10,000 people - all of them eating drinking defecating on top of each other.

And the amazing thing is Sujiatun is a populated close suburb of Shenyang city, with over 150 foreign company and 50-60 foreign family too - "nobody goes in and out of the concentration camp"?

More info about the tunnel, including dimension of the facility:

http://www.u-web.cn/PersonalPCSite/complex562_detail.jsp?itemid=175862&contenttype=TextImage&isindex=0&indexchannelid=-1

"after jumping down and passing two holes, we arrive at the entrance of the underground facility. The hallway is 2 meters long and only wide enough for one person. After the hallway is a wider 8 square meter area. After 5 meters we arrrive at 3 meter wide, 2 meter tall underground structure. Cement covers the walls, it's flooded with water 1 meter deep. the structure is about 4 meter under ground, with some of the walls crumbling.

According to Wang TsenJie who discovered it, from above ground estimation it is 2000 meter long [with widest point @ 3 meter], half completely flooded. Water is clear with fish that have no eyes. Some ammunition and human remains have been found [human remain from WWII.]"

(Just for comparison Guantanamo Bay is a huge base, and it only holds 700 detainees.)
