Lee denounces China as `slave state’

From AFP, via Taipei Times:

Former president Lee Teng-hui (ÊùéÁôªËºù) on Friday accused China of running a “slave state” that uses the false promise of its booming economy to dupe the free world into appeasing its tyranny.

In an explosive speech in Los Angeles on the last leg of a 13-day US tour that has infuriated Beijing, Lee called for capitalist nations to shun investment in China, which he likened to the 1930s appeasement policy towards German dictator Adolf Hitler and later Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.

“As long as the capital from free countries continues to pour into China, China’s already oppressive practices will become more entrenched and the ensuing and ever-expanding militarism will make the likelihood of transition to a peaceful country ever more unlikely,” he said.
