Why rhetoric is important, and why dragging America's reputation through the mud is Mr. Bush's greatest crime - In the Times Online today, we're told that "[f]ar from heeding international calls for dialogue with the Dalai Lama, China has accused Tibet's exiled god-king of colluding with Muslim terrorists to destabilise the country before the Olympic Games."
Doesn't that sound familiar? At at the same time, doesn't it sound wildly ludicrous? Accusing the Dalai Lama of colluding with Muslim terrorists to destabilize China to make them look bad for the Olympics?
I swear, it's like Cheney wrote it himself.
Hey, good job, America! You've made it acceptable to fling baldfaced lies about in public! China knows nobody's going to call them on it. Who's going to? America? Then we'll all have a belly laugh, no doubt.
