Tibet has been under Chinese control for 50 years. Where was
every past President on this issue? What a load of hypocrisy!

This has to do with more than just Tibet. It also has to do with Chinese actions regarding Japan, Taiwan, Sudan, and in their own country. In addition, China is bullying the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Taiwan for control of the Spratley Islands. The Spratley’s are in the middle of a major shipping lane in the South China Sea and are valued for their petroleum and gas potential.

Exactly. Horse is out of the barn and has been. We should have been worried about China long before now and considering the manufacturing we DON’T do here in the US anymore...I heard something frightening on the radio the other day, that the US only buys 20% of China’s exports these days, which seems to mean that they don’t need us nearly as much as we need them anymore.

I’m no economist, so someone please demonstrate to me how outsourcing and importing; abandoning rather than maintaining our own homegrown industries doesn’t put us in an increasingly vulnerable position.

But more to the point, I think China’s human rights violations are despicable and our complacency in that regard is just as bad. And don’t even get me started on our “friend” Saudi Arabia, whose citizens live in a virtual “through the looking glass” compared to American freedom and ideals. But we hold their hands and look the other way.
