Why is the U.S. afraid to confront China?
To the editor:
I find it interesting, but I am not surprised that President Obama and many American politicians are hellbent on chasing the president of Egypt out of office on the grounds that Egypt is not a democracy while at the same time we continue business as usual with China, a nation that is the most blatant and egregious abuser of human rights in the world.
China, a totalitarian, nondemocratic nation that keeps its Nobel Peace Prize winner in prison, is given a free pass while we get all up in arms about the internal affairs of Egypt? If there were ever a case for regime change, it is China. China is also the only nation that poses any realistic long-term threat to American security and freedom.
Why is it that all American politicians lack the courage to confront China when they have no problem mucking around in the affairs of many other nations such as Egypt? We are either consistently for freedom or we are not. We should not have selective vision and hearing where the problems of other nations are concerned.
