前陸軍副司令對馬英九的批判


BJWang 2013-6-24 14:38
劉湘濱,陸軍官校(40期)第一名畢業,保送美國戰爭學院進修,歷任關渡師長、國防大學兵學研究所長、國安會秘書處長、陸軍副司令。

以下是記者鄒景雯專訪劉湘濱


問:海基海協兩會簽署服務貿易協議,引起了國內相關產業極大的恐慌,政府對於利害關係人並未進行溝通,這政府到底出了什麼問題?

劉:我要先講一個本質問題。這麼長時間以來,這麼多人批評馬英九,說他無能也好,他都「謝謝指教」,唯獨最近高育仁說他私心,馬忍了四天,還是跳出來反擊:「不能接受」。為什麼?歸根結柢,高育仁的批判是最到位的。

馬有私心 只用家臣治國

不論兩岸或內政,一切問題確實都出在馬英九的私心上面。就是因為私心,國家才會變成這樣。李佳霏是一個非常典型的例子。李佳霏馬英九是什麼關係?是長官部屬?是公事還是私交?在公眾場所會寫這種字條,代表的互動是私的關係蓋過公的關係,他們不是長官部屬,甚至長輩與晚輩都不是。見微知著,由此可以大膽假設,圍繞在馬英九身邊,所有他用的人,都不是公的關係。這代表他們之間的互動只要維持好私的關係,就不會出事,公事上,做得好不好,有沒有績效,相對就沒這麼重要。(繼續讀http://www.wetalk.tw/thread-3724-1-1.html

Sunflower Movement. Is China Losing Taiwan?

A

2 MAR 31, 2014 6:01 PM ET

By William Pesek

Taiwan's Ma Ying-jeou is learning a very valuable lesson the hard way: If you want to cozy up to China, it's best not to be too Chinese about it.

The point is being driven home by hundreds of thousands of student protesters, enraged by the Taiwanese president's attempt to enact a trade pact with China in the dark of night. The deal to open up the island's service industries is controversial enough. But when Ma reneged on a promise to allow a clause-by-clause review before implementing it, he infuriated the island's youth. Ma seems to have forgotten he's running a democracy, not a Communist Party precinct.

This nascent battle between students and Ma's ruling Kuomintang Party is about more than bank branches and beauty parlors. It's about where Taiwan intends to position itself in the tug of war between Xi Jinping's China and Barack Obama's U.S. for influence in Asia.

No doubt Xi and Obama never expected Taiwan to flare up as an issue between them this year. In his almost six years as president, Ma has focused intently on improving ties with the mainland. But the students who last month stormed Taiwan's cabinet compound for the first time in history demonstrated the limits and unappreciated consequences of that policy. Although not exactly an Arab Spring, this “Sunflower Movement” suggests the calm across the Taiwan Strait that Beijing and Washington took for granted may officially be over.

Ma should shelve the China deal for now. His argument that backing out would undermine Taiwan's economy and international credibility pales in comparison to the need to preserve the island's hard-won democracy. Yes, China is Taiwan's largest trading partner and Ma's economy has been hit hard by the demise of the personal computer, on which the island largely bet its future. Clearly, alienating Beijing carries costs.

But so does a policy that depends on China's goodwill. Taiwan's sophisticated economy has more in common with those of the U.S. and Japan than China, and it should ink more free-trade pacts with developed nations, like the one recently signed with New Zealand. Its human capital, infrastructure and financial resources give Taiwan the leverage to move up the value-added ladder in the search for the next game-changing technology. That's the only way Taiwan is going to maintain or improve its per capita income of about $39,000 -- not by selling TVs and PCs to Chinese.

Ma's bigger misstep was assuming his people would go along quietly with his Politburo-esque maneuver. Young Taiwanese appear to be mulling a very different future, one that shares the values espoused by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party. Are they proud of their Chinese heritage? Sure. But that doesn't mean they're prepared to give up freedoms and rights that still remain a dream on the mainland.

The Communist Party's subjugation of its own citizens and overreach in Hong Kongis feeding the movement. Young Taiwanese have watched as China has backtracked on pledges to allow Hong Kongers to elect their own leaders. Beijing's attempts to impose vaguely written anti-sedition laws and patriotic education, and to clamp down on the city's freewheeling press, are equally unnerving. China should be learning from Hong Kong's civil liberties and first-world financial system, not the other way around.

Letters from Taiwan





 Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou said on Saturday student protests over a controversial trade pact with mainland China will not affect the potential for a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. 
News report from Reuters
In other words, “I’m full steam ahead to collect my Nobel Peace Prize for contravening the 1948 UNDHR and ignoring the wishes of the Taiwanese people for self determination and their consistent and measured desire not to become a part of a ‘reunified China’.  My legacy and reputation in Chinese history is more important than the declared wishes of 23 million people."

Asia. What unprecedented protest means for Taiwan

By Cindy Sui


Riot police clash with student protesters outside the Executive Yuan, a branch of government in charge of administrative affairs for all of Taiwan on 24 March 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan
The student protesters say they want to protect Taiwan's future and have their voices heard

The unprecedented student occupation of Taiwan's parliament this month, to oppose the government's attempt to pass a controversial trade agreement with China, is not just a one-off protest.

It was a bloody night in Taiwan on 24 March 2014.

via Ada Chou

Democracy melted down as the government of Taiwan cracked down the students occupying the Parliament & the Cabinet protesting against a trade pack deal signed with China in secrecy in June 2013.

Here in Australia "the Greens have been calling for the TPP text to be made public. We need to know how this agreement impacts us before it is signed. This would help ensure that our nation's biggest ever trade deal is not just for the special interests of the powerful, but is fair for all Australians."
(See http://greensmps.org.au/TPPA)

The students in Taiwan are demanding the same from their government, ie the bare minimum in democracy that we all strive for, Transparency, Equality & Justice.

The students have occupied the Parliament since 18 March 2014 and it is still continuing as the Taiwanese gov rejects all requests from the students, including one to establish a legal monitoring framework for all future cross-strait negotiations.

The students in Taiwan need your support.

❤️ Please watch this video and share to show your support in solidarity. ❤️

Why Spy on Taiwan When Taiwan Gives Information Away for Free?


Chinese espionage against Taiwan, the self-ruled, democratic island claimed by Beijing as a “breakaway” province awaiting “re-unification,” has kept intelligence experts awake at night for decades. People have long worried about aggressive espionage by China’s intelligence apparatus and leaks by members of Taiwan’s armed forces. Now according to the island’s top intelligence chief, we have something else to fear: Government agencies giving loads of confidential information to the Chinese — for free.
Even as relations improved between the two sides following the election of President Ma Ying-jeou of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) in 2008, collection by China’s civilian and military intelligence agencies targeting the island, as well as cyber intrusions, never subsided. While it would seem contradictory — and perhaps counterproductive — for Beijing to maintain an aggressive intelligence posture against the island amid warming ties, China’s multifaceted approach to Taiwan, a mix of incentives and threats, explains why. Furthermore, as growing economic and cultural ties have yet to yield political dividends for China in terms of making unification likelier, Beijing is keen on obtaining as detailed a picture of its opponent as possible should the day come when rulers in Zhongnanhai decide that non-peaceful means are necessary to resolve the issue once and for all.
Chinese intelligence has therefore been unrelenting in its espionage against Taiwan, cultivating sources in Taiwan’s military and within its open society, to which it now enjoys unprecedented access thanks to relaxed rules on investment, visits, and tourism. According to government statistics, almost 3 million Chinese tourists visited Taiwan in 2013, accounting for a whopping 36 percent of the 8 million arrivals that year. Evidence suggests that a number of Chinese tourists who enter Taiwan ostensibly for tourism purposes are “directed” by Chinese intelligence agencies. According to legislators from Taiwan’s opposition, 784 Chinese have overstayed their visas. If we add Chinese who enter the country illegally, the total is well above 1,000. A fraction of them is assumed to be engaging in intelligence operations.

Los Alamos studying alternatives for toxic waste

Created: 03/11/2014 4:55 PM 


By: The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - With the nation's only underground nuclear waste dump shuttered by a mysterious leak, Los Alamos National Laboratory has begun looking at alternatives for getting toxic waste off its campus.
Lab spokesman Matthew Nerzig confirmed Tuesday that officials have begun looking at options if the Waste Isolation Pilot Project in Carlsbad remains closed indefinitely.
The presence of that waste, stored outside with little protection, came to the public's attention three years ago as a massive wildfire lapped at the edges of the sprawling lab property.
The lab has since agreed to have it all removed from the mesa by the end of June.  The lab was ahead of schedule for getting the nearly 4,000 barrels to WIPP when back-to-back accidents, including a radiation release, closed the repository last month.http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S3358132.shtml?cat=500#.Ux-mBIFArqA

Renewable Energy No Nuclear- An Environmental Engineer’s 2030 Forecast

May 16, 2013

In this month’s Report on Business Magazine, a  supplement that comes with The Globe and Mail, one of Canada’s national newspapers, Stanford University’s Mark Jacobson provides a best case scenario for powering our planet in the year 2030. A civil and environmental engineer, Jacobson statesthat the only thing impeding this outcome is“lobbyists and special interest groups, particularly from the energy companies that would stand to lose from a conversion.”

Jacobson’s energy mix includes wind, concentrated solar (molten salt heated by solar mirrors), photovoltaics, geothermal, tidal and wave, and hydroelectricity. No coal fired power plants. No natural gas plants. and no nuclear.  (read more.....             http://www.21stcentech.com/energy-update-environmental-engineers-2030-forecast/

Anti Nuclear Action Union and Japan"Whole Country Officials Anti Nuckear Union"、director Ko Yi Jen came to north coast Jingshan、Wan Li  (7)yesterday with the intention to exam the hospital location and the evacuatation directing center near nuclear power plants #1 and # 2.
北海岸反核行動聯盟與日本「全國地方首長反核連盟」、導演柯一正等人昨(7)日到北海岸金山萬里等核一、核二廠所在地,勘查核災範圍的逃生路線、醫院設點與救災前進指揮所。


Anti Nuclear Action Union chief Ko Ching Ling  said npp  #2 incinerate lie level nuclear waste and the smoke is blown to Taipei by north east wind.  One member from Japan "Whole Country officials Anti Nuclear Union"  pointed out the the chimneys in Japan nuclear power plants are 200m high with filters.  However,  there's none of these devices in Taiwan.
北海岸反核行動聯盟執行長郭慶霖表示,核二廠燃燒低階核廢料,輻射物質隨著燃煙都順著東北風,吹向台北市。日本「全國地方首長反核連盟」成員則指出,日本核電廠的煙囪都有200公尺高,並加設濾網,但台灣卻找不到類似的設備。

Due to north coast ocean bad condition,  the group travelled by bus instead of by boat to exam evacuation route. Anti Nuclear Movement  North Coast Union chief Ko Ching Ling said "Confucius said' take the boat if the road is blocked.'. The weather next day was bad and they couldn't set out to the sea. As you can tell,  when the weather is not allowed like today,  we can't take the boat.  What if the nuclear disaster really happen,  who can guarantee that one can evacuate via the sea? "

北海岸反核行動聯盟原本打算帶大家出海探查逃生路線,但因為海相不好,所以改乘大型巴士探勘陸上逃生路線。北海岸反核行動聯盟執行長郭慶霖說,「孔子當年說:『道不行,乘桴浮於海』,結果子路二話不說打算跟著老師一起去飄浪。但是你看,今天天氣不好,連出海都有困難,如果真的發生核災,又豈能保證一定可以逃生到海上呢?」

The group arrived at npp #2 parking lot near the swag and spotted the plant.  It was a drizzling day  in the morning on the 7th, the strong north east wind was felt instantly soon after we we're out of bus. Guaranteed a blown umbrella if face the wrong direction.  Taiwan Environment Protection Union North Coast Branch has over 30 years anti nuclear experience.  These " North Sea Old Hero" prepared a drone to create thick smoke in the hope to show the strength and direction of the north east wind.

於是大家來到核能二廠出水口停車場,不遠處即可看到核二廠。7日上午陰雨綿綿,一下車就可以感受東北風非常強勁,普通的雨傘只要方向不對,立刻開花。反核超過30年的台灣環保聯盟北海岸分會,這群「北海老英雄」們更在現場準備了鐵桶燃起濃煙,讓煙霧具體呈現出東北風強勁的走勢。

郭慶霖說,5日上午10時12分,他從萬里經過野柳舊隧道,一出隧道口就看見核二廠一陣陣白煙裊裊。這是核二廠正在燃燒低階核廢料,而輻射物質都隨著東北風,就這麼灌進台北市。

Taiwan nuclear authorities explain waste handling after protests

Taiwan energy authorities went on the defensive on Wednesday for the second day in a row to offer details about the incineration of low-level nuclear waste amid accusations that they mishandled radioactive material.
The Atomic Energy Council (AEC) and state-run Taiwan Power Co (Taipower) stressed that burning up low-level waste is a regular practice and is handled according to environmental regulations and relevant laws.
AEC vice chairman Chou Yuan-ching also promised that the council will this year complete a re-examination of 54 sites detected to have higher-than-normal levels of radioactivity as reported by anti-nuclear power activists.
The comments came in response to a protest at Taipower's Taichung office on Wednesday led by the Central Taiwan Antinuclear Action Alliance and Liu Li-er, a Taiwanese writer based in Japan. The alliance is planning another march on Saturday.
According to alliance convener Tsai Chih-hao, a group of concerned private citizens have discovered 54 locations across Taiwan with radiation three times over the permissible level since they began conducting a census in March last year.
Tsai said that Taipower, the operator of Taiwan's three nuclear power plants, incinerates thousands of barrels of low-level nuclear waste each year to lessen the number of storage sites for the wastes, which he implicitly linked to a nationwide radiation level that is 2-4 times the natural background level.
Among the dozens of sites across Taiwan proper, Penghu and Kinmen, the alliance detected artificial nuclides of plutonium at National Taichung University of Science and Technology as well as caesium-134 and caesium-137 at Taichung Civic Square, he said, arguing that Taiwan is being polluted by radioactivity.
Taipower divides the radioactive waste produced by nuclear power plants into burnable and unburnable types, of which 100,000 barrels of unburnable waste is stored on the outlying Orchid Island or Lanyu, he said. Around the same number of barrels are stored within Taiwan's three active nuclear plants.
Taipower spokesman Chai Fu-feng explained later in the day that low-end nuclear waste is treated in several stages before being incinerated, and the process is closely monitored throughout.
If radioactivity reaches a higher than acceptable level during the incineration, an automatic shutdown mechanism will kick in, Chai said.
Despite the explanation, however, there is no indication that the environmentalists will call off their Saturday demonstration to demand scrapping a fourth nuclear plant and an end to nuclear power on Taiwan.http://www.wantchinatimes.com/news-subclass-cnt.aspx?id=20140307000020&cid=1105

                             March 11th will mark the third year since the Fukushima meltdown occurred and experts on nuclear disasters Janette D. Sherman, MD and Joseph Mangano are warning the US to shut down its dangerous nuclear power plants.

The two specialists teamed up to give their analysis on Japan’s region that has been left in such a perilous state.
News has come out that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and huge Japanese corporations have their eyes set on reopening the 50 other power plants that shut down because of the Fukushima fallout. The other nuclear facilities have been called a source of cheap power.

More than 200,000 Taiwanese anti nuclear protesters gathered together for the 308 No Nuke Movement. The rallies are held in north, center, south and east of Taiwan. These events will be followed by No Nuclear Night Functions to represent their determination in terminating the dirty nuclear power plants from running and commissioning.

We love Formosa Taiwan and we have had enough listening to the lies from the government and Taipower. Please say a big NO to nuclear power plants. Together, we people will make a Nuclear 
Free Taiwan!!!



Anti-nuclear protests in Taiwan draw tens of thousands

Tens of thousands have marched in anti-nuclear protests across Taiwan, calling on the government to phase out nuclear energy. The protest comes ahead of the third anniversary of the Fukishima disaster.
Anti-nuclear protesters in Taiwan held four rallies across the country on Saturday, urging the government both to stop construction of a new nuclear power plant and to abandon nuclear power altogether.
Organizers said some 50,000 people attended the protest march and rally in the capital, Taipei, while three other events held simultaneously in other parts of the country drew a combined total of some 30,000.
The Taipei protest was attended by members both of opposition parties and the ruling Kuomintang (KMT).
Concern about the risks posed by Taiwan's atomic power plants has been growing since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami unleashed a nuclear disaster at Japan's Fukushima plant on March 11, 2011.
Taiwan is also regularly hit by earthquakes, raising fears that its currently three nuclear facilities may be similarly vulnerable.
Protesters called on the government to cease construction work on a fourth plant that is being built in a coastal town near Taipei. The plant was originally scheduled to be completed by 2004, but the project has been delayed by political wrangling.
Several polls conducted last year showed that about 70 percent of Taiwanese oppose the building of the plant, which is situated near undersea volcanoes.
The existing plants furnish about 20 percent of the country's energy needs.


Taipei Times
March 6, 2014 
The nationwide action is aimed at pushing the government to make a
commitment to a no-nuke homeland, said Tsui Su-hsin (崔傃欣),
secretary-general of Green Citizens’ Action Alliance, one of the
participating non-governmental organizations.
Tsui said the alliance, along with several dozen civic organizations such as the Homemakers United Foundation, Taiwan Association for Human Rights and Taiwan Environmental Protection Union, would call for the scrapping of nuclear power plants.
“We hope to renew people’s passion for this issue as the anti-nuclear movement has entered a critical stage,” as the fourth nuclear plant could begin operations soon, Tsui said.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs said earlier this year that safety inspections on the nearly completed power plant are expected to run through June, and that if all goes well, it could start fuel rod installation by the end of the year.
The inspections were initiated in an effort to ease widespread public concerns after the 2011 Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan, which was caused by a massive earthquake and tsunami.
Construction of the fourth power plant in New Taipei City’s Gongliao District (貢寮) began in 1999, but the project has repeatedly stalled due in part to the changing political climate and rising opposition to nuclear power.
Tsui said the government should immediately stop construction of
the fourth nuclear plant and speedily decommission the other three
that are in operation.
It is hoped that the rallies, which are to take place in Taipei, Greater
Taichung, Greater Kaohsiung and Taitung, would draw at least 220,000
protesters, on a par with the nationwide anti-nuclear march last year,
 Tsui said.
Taiwan Power Co, which is in charge of the country’s power plants,
has insisted that the fourth nuclear plant is safe and that measures
have been taken to avert a Fukushimatypdisaster.
The government has said that nuclear power is needed to ensure that
the nation has a steady and adequate supply of electricity.

It has also said the fourth plant is safe and necessary, especially
as the other three decades-old plants will be decommissioned eventually.
In Taipei, the demonstrators are expected to meet at three locations
 — the plaza in front of Wellcome Supermarket in Daan District (大安),
the intersection between Linsen N Road and Nanjing E Road, and
National Taiwan University’s main entrance.
