History Lessons from Three U.S. Misjudgments of the Chinese Communist Party (16)

(4) Nixon and Kissinger are “benefactors” of the CCP’s tyranny

The U.S. accepted the CCP’s five conditions, and used ambiguous diplomatic rhetoric to echo the CCP’s strong-worded one-China principle, which has kept diplomacy with the CCP passive since then, resulting in the absurd situation that U.S. foreign policy is set by the CCP. The U.S. has voluntarily allowed the CCP to tie its hands and feet, and can only play within the limits set by the CCP, making it difficult to break through. The Communist Party has been enjoying the benefits of nothing for nearly half a century now, as if it were an empty glove.

The United States has betrayed its trust, voluntarily following the rogue logic of choosing between tyranny and freedom imposed by the CCP, abandoning its allies in the Republic of China who share similar values, and weakening its Anti-Communist alliance on the first island chain, which not only brings hidden dangers to the security of the Asia-Pacific region, but also leaves a great stain on the reputation of the United States.

The loss of U.S. principles and its commitment not to support “one China, one Taiwan” and the undetermined status of Taiwan is tantamount to handing over the fate of the Taiwanese people to the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party, which is contrary to the U.S. philosophy of defending freedom and upholding justice. Nixon, speaking of his negotiations with the North Vietnamese Communists, said that a nation that betrays its allies and lets down its friends cannot remain great. The right of the South Vietnamese people to determine their own future was not negotiable. But he would throw away the freedom of his anti-communist allies and the people of Taiwan to curry favor with the Chinese Communist Party.

Nixon, like Marshall, did not realize that the Chinese communists, in fact, were not really Chinese. Nee’s good feelings toward China and the Chinese people influenced and softened their value judgments about the Communist tyranny. In a conversation with Ambassador Ma Kangwei in China, Nee said that if the 750 million people of mainland China were under an excellent system, they would lead the world. They are a different kind of people. [49] It is clear that Nixon saw the communists as part of the Chinese people. The declassified transcripts of Nixon and Kissinger’s meetings show that they seemed to know the Communist tyrant as soon as they met him, and they were so open and honest, so unguarded, that they could not see that they were negotiating with the enemies of the free world, but rather that they were having a heart-to-heart with a long-lost friend. The United States has been more accommodating and generous to the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party than even to its true friends. No wonder Mao Zedong not only promised to vote for Nixon, but also sent a special plane to bring him to Beijing for another meeting after Nixon stepped down due to the Watergate scandal. Nixon was flattered and glad to go, which was another scandal and stain on his personal Life and the United States.

In fact, the United States has the least reason to turn its back on Taiwan. The situation of two Chinas is the direct result of the United States’ own earlier strategic mistakes. If it were not for Marshall’s flying accident, the National Government’s great task of fighting communism and building a nation would not have been a failure. The U.S. should have justifiably maintained national relations between the U.S. and China based on the undisputed legitimacy and legality of the Republic of China (ROC) while establishing relations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), not to mention the fact that the ROC was an anti-communist ally of the U.S. and the free world, while the CCP was the common enemy of the U.S. and China and the free world.

However, history turned out to be so unforgiving. After being abandoned by Truman and Marshall, the ill-fated Republic of China was tragically betrayed by Nixon and Kissinger. Jiang Zhongzheng lamented in his diary: “Since the age of twenty-five, after countless worries and humiliations, especially the external torture and twisting, not only to make our veins and people’s lives completely eliminated but also the U.S. government, hypocrisy and fraudulent play, people can not tolerate the humiliation, has reached the extreme. This is since the Republic of 31, Stilwell, Ma Xiaer (Marshall) and even today Nixon, is the most embarrassing Time in the world.

Interaction and contact with the Communists who have lost their principles and positions is itself a process of assimilation into evil, no matter how grand the reason. In the late 1970s, the United States was trapped deeper and deeper in the One China trap when the Carter administration finally abandoned its traditional ally, the Republic of China, and established diplomatic relations with the Communists, recognized the Communist tyranny as the sole legitimate representative of all China, unilaterally abrogated the U.S.-China Mutual Defense Treaty, withdrew its troops and military facilities, restricted arms sales to Taiwan, and so on, repeatedly surrendering its own long-term interests and those of the free world.

The consequences of the United States being trapped by the illusory “One China” have become more and more obvious as time progresses, especially with the democratic transformation of the Republic of China and the rise of the Communist Party’s tyrannical zombies.

In 1996, the Republic of China implemented direct presidential election and successfully transformed into a democratic country. However, the Chinese Communist tyranny saw free Taiwan as the greatest threat to its legitimacy and launched an all-round siege on the ROC in an attempt to deflower and eventually annex Taiwan. Although the people of Taiwan have become the masters of their country, they are unable to determine their own Destiny, watching their country being reduced to an international pariah under the siege of human rights villains. In the name of safeguarding national sovereignty, the Chinese Communist Party’s so-called “one-China principle” (including the later “one country, two systems”) confronts the international community’s consensus that human rights are superior to sovereignty, forcibly sells the evil Communist Party’s distorted arguments of right and wrong, and coerces the West to accept the Communist Party’s totalitarian Orwellian Nonsense. The Communist dictatorship is not satisfied with the injustice and injustice in the mainland, but it has set new international rules to regulate the words and actions of the mainstream civilization in the free world, and the international community has been listening to it and even going with the flow for a long time. The reversal of good and evil, and the evil change of the world is mind-boggling.

What is even more serious is that the probability of the Chinese Communist tyranny to counter-attack the free world in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea and to take desperate measures has increased greatly. Although the Communists have never given up on violating Taiwan by force, their insignificant strength was nothing more than a whim in the early days of diplomatic relations with the United States. However, under the patronage and connivance of the U.S. appeasement policy, the Communists’ military strength viciously expanded. The U.S. is bound by the One-China Policy, especially the 817 communiqué, which sets self-imposed limits on arms sales to Taiwan, and the serious imbalance in military power between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait has been in place for many years, which, coupled with the U.S. strategic ambiguity in assisting Taiwan’s defense, has indirectly fueled the ambitions of the communists. Now the communists not only threaten the national security of free Taiwan, but also begin to provoke the U.S. military in the South China Sea, the Western Pacific and space, becoming the greatest threat to U.S. national security. Time has changed, but the U.S. tastes the same bitter fruit again. Once again, why should we have done it in the first place if we had known?

Nixon’s opening of the door to the Chinese Communist Party was undoubtedly his personal success, allowing him to win re-election by a landslide, at the cost of abandoning the core values of freedom, human rights, democracy and justice that the United States stands for for the so-called common good. And the unconditional appeasement of the Chinese Communist Party led by him has been handed down as a political legacy. All U.S. presidents after Nixon, whether Democrat or Republican, have continued the policy of appeasement of the Chinese Communist tyranny, almost institutionalizing and modeling it. In his “Letter to All Compatriots on the Withdrawal of the Republic of China from the United Nations,” Chiang C.C.C. predicted that how the Chinese problem is solved will determine the world’s security and the woes of mankind. Nixon’s decades-long pro-Communist history fully verified Chiang’s foresight, for although the United States had brought down the Soviet Communist Party, it had personally cultivated an evil Chinese Communist Party that was even more vicious and ambitious than the Soviet Communist Party, causing the United States to go into decline and the world order to be greatly disrupted.
