Bush: China must end detentions, ensure rights
06-Aug-2008 (2 comments)

BANGKOK, Thailand - With all eyes on Beijing, President Bush bluntly told China that America stands in "firm opposition" to the way the communist government represses its own people, a rebuke delivered from the heart of Asia on the cusp of the Olympic Games.

Bush balanced his chiding with praise for China's market reforms and hope that it will embrace freedom, reflecting the delicate balance that Bush seeks to strike with the potent U.S. rival.

"We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labor rights not to antagonize China's leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential," Bush said in perhaps his last major Asia address.

Kameniii is not telling Chinese what to do with their people and what not to do. The idiot is ! And he is worse than hitler. Hitler had the balls to say I hate these jews and you know what I am going to do with them, and did. But  did the "idiot" do the same? In fact he went to a mosque and took his shoes off in a sign of respect to moslems to say that it iyn't so. You know the P/R bullshit I suppose!


Can u say the same about Ali Khameneii?

Evil, liar, monster, criminal or whateva, at least his term in office will end in a few months and everybody knows he'll be gone.

Can you say the same about Ali Khameneii, Mr. Shining head? Can Iranian people ever get rid of him?
