Bloggers against Red China

Someone much further to the right than yours truly unsuccesfully tried to get that topic off the ground and running but nonetheless I must confess to some intrigue.

A couple of years ago I was discussing foreign affairs with a friend who was a Canadian government official and is admittedly to my left. A couple good points:

  • "I don't understand why the U.S. is screwing around with so many troops in Iraq when there are real threats in places like Afghanistan where the troops are seriously needed."
  • "And why is everybody sucking up to China? With them it's all take and no give."

Interesting indeed.

It's interesting that the only (R) candidate who mentioned PRChina was Fred Thompson.

McCain has not, although he's ready for war with Russia and Iran; the others haven't raised the topic whatever.

PRChina sunk its hooks deep into the Clinton Administration and although GWB's been pretty good about vigilance, the nest provided by Bill Clinton has not been cleaned out.
