China and several Central Asian nations rebuffed Russia's hopes of international support for its actions in Georgia, issuing a statement Thursday denouncing the use of force and calling for the respect of every country's territorial integrity.

Can you say "Tibet and Taiwan"?

I knew you could...

Yeah, unfortunately for Russia, China has its own territorial concerns which are not served by backing declarations of independence, and pretty much all the Asian nations not aligned with China are aligned with the U.S.

Sucks not being a superpower anymore, huh, Russia?

can you say, Chinas continued economic growth depends on not joining in a conflict against the main provider of badly needed jobs, being done by American corporations, or the purchasing of those goods by the American consumer.

Just goes to prove that the Chinese are better at foreign policy than our State Department.

Can you say Kosovo?
