Kowtowing to China?

The Editor:

I was completely disheartened to read that the government reneged on the UN refugee

status of two Falun Gong practitioners. The government may have sentenced to death

two innocent, good people, people who are only trying to follow their consciences

and follow truth, compassion and forbearance. A few in power in China have undertaken

a brutal crackdown against their citizens who hold those beliefs.

Why does the government kowtow to the Chinese government? Hopefully, they did not

receive special favors in return, for if so, they have traded human lives indecently.

Please realize that the whole world stands to review their opinion of the government

based on this improper and cruel action. What kind of face does the government hope

to show other nations? Please understand as well that you have gone against all that

is good.
