AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT
An Appeal To The Great Chinese People
It is in times of crisis that a nation, a people, a government, a leader has an opportunity to show potential for greatness. In the long, proud history of the Chinese people, there have been many such opportunities, and China has many times over proven itself to be among the greatest nations in history.
More recently, such opportunities have been fewer. The opportunities which did present themselves were not always well handled. World opinion, which, in this Olympic year, had been turning toward China with increasing respect, is now pausing to consider a new opportunity, a new crisis.
The terrible natural disaster in Myanmar last Saturday presents the Chinese people with an opportunity to exercise their true greatness, and take their place as first among nations. By the simple act of persuading the Myanmar government to allow aid workers and relief supplies from around the world to be quickly, efficiently, and professionally brought where they are needed, most desperately, China could begin its' tenure as the world's next superpower.
What the United States, France, India and other great nations have been unable to accomplish could be done now by the Chinese. If it is not done, an opportunity will have been missed, and thousands will die needlessly. The world will not forget, and China will be seen for many many years as a nation that has failed to live up to its' promise of greatness.
Let China step up and take charge of the relief efforts. Under their aegis, the Myanmar government can feel secure, and the Burmese people can be saved. Let China bring in and supervise all foreign aid workers, and protect the Junta from any attempt at regime change. Whatever the future may bring, basic human decency demands that aid be delivered properly, right now. The world knows now that it is up to China, and China alone, to do this.
