BANGKOK (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush plans to voice deep concerns about human rights in China in a speech on Thursday, hours before he arrives in Beijing for the opening of the Olympic Games.
"The United States believes the people of China deserve the fundamental liberty that is the natural right of all human beings," Bush will say in a speech in Bangkok, copies of which were released in advance.
"So America stands in firm opposition to China's detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates and religious activists."

Bush could be pushing the smiliar point in his speech regarding China, for the same reason.
Boy! That will really show them!!!!! /sarc
Bush is a good man. He should look into his heart. Please Mr. President boycott Berli... Bejing!
Anyone else guessing that this “rebuke” has be cleared ahead of time with Beijing? You know, those diplomatic niceties.
Wonder if Mexico is feeling a little jealous, worried that Jorge might be sucking up to Red China more than he sucks up to Mexico?
“Well, Beijing has much deeper pockets.”
And filled with American money no less.
Will they revoke his visa hehehe?
