Obama and China

Isn't it nice to have a conservative in the White House again, for the first time since ... well, when, exactly? 1980? 1976? I'll settle for 1980.

Everyone knows that the only solution is the reunion of China on a more democratic basis, and that Tibetan separatism is Shangri-la drivel. Even the people running Taiwan say the former. Even the Dalai Lama (for all his many faults) says the latter. The only dissenters are the Crazies, now mercifully banished from the running of anything.

As for China's activities in Africa, their aim is to secure a food supply so that they can give up the One Child Policy (which, by the way, does not apply in Tibet). Who could possibly argue with that? Well, the Crazies could, I suppose. But they are now mercifully banished from the running of anything.
