Dr. Marten has spent more time in Red China than any of us (including his time on FR). Disagree with him if you want, but don't question his credentials. Since different countries have different interests and different values of course they will not always respond as the U.S. government might like. As we know the Clintons played footsie with these murderous thugs, and both Bushes have been pretty chummy with them (especially the Elder). Saying countries have different interests and won't always do what we want isn't Kerry-esque, it is a simple fact. The difference between Kerry, and say, a Buchaninite is how you respond to that fact. In most cases, you can attempt force (including threats and sanctions), disengage (the Buchanan approach) or capitulate to varying degrees.
If you would accept it, I would like to thank you for your service. (And I think Dr. Marten is just his brand of shoes, not an attempt to pull rank.)

"Dr. Marten has spent more time in Red China than any of us?"
and how would you know that?
and whatever time your "doctor" spent in China;
your "doctor" apparently didn't learn much...but whatever your "doctor's" "credentials"; his/her first response to a post shouldn't be condensation.
The "doctor" should learn some manners!

Thanks for the comments, sittnick.
Oh, and as a matter of fact, it just so happens that I DO love Dr. Martenz. ;-)
They're my favorite shoes!
