"out of the mouths of totalitarian regimes.."

…as they (don’t usually) say – This article from the BBC has China highlighting America’s human rights abuses, in the wake of Washington’s report on Human Rights around the world. What a jumbled mess of moral equivalence that is! One regime known for it’s use of torture and imprisonment without trial accusing another nation who use torture and imprisonment without trial of HR abuses… So the key is to do it to your own people, or Tibetans?

The big question here is why does it take China to point out the gross inconsistencies in the US position on democracy, human rights and international relations. Why isn’t every national leader on the planet lambasting Washington for their evil two-faced-ness??

grim stuff.
