They really inspire confidence, do they not?
OTOH - I’m seeing a guy abandoning his wife and baby to the authorities along with his relatives. Stay and fight. If they come for you then you’d have a better standing in the world. Now nobody can get near that village.
Gutless Obama won’t stand up to the Chinese. Chen is toast. Really disgusting lack of moral fiber in this administration.
The bottom line is that this is a “diplomatic thing”.
A citizen of a country goes to a foreign embassy in that country to demand sanctuary, claiming political persecution.
This happens a LOT around the world, and there is a formal process that must be followed based in the treaties between countries that permit embassies.
There is little or nothing Hillary can do in this situation, other than go through the formal ritual with her Chinese counterparts.
It can get weird. Remember not too long ago, when deposed Honduran president Manuel Zelaya snuck back into his own country, Honduras, and hid in the Brazilian embassy there.
The same, bizarre, diplomatic tap dance.
Clinton: Chinese human rights can't interfere with other crises
"Successive administrations and Chinese governments have been poised back and forth on these issues, and we have to continue to press them. But our pressing on those issues can't interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis, and the security crisis," - Sec State Hillary Clinton; Feb. 21, 2009
Six, two and even, she's selling you out, Chen.
We’ve come a long way since Cardinal Mindszenty...unfortunately, it the wrong way.
The published facts alone raise too many questions about credibility.
What is the price that Obama is paying to enhance the not too impressive performance of Clinton as SoS and Obama himself adding to his heroism of single handed killing of Osama binLaden.
