Peking's Posse

China is a buddy to the horrible regimes of Burma, Sudan, Venezuela, and Iran. And China is strengthening its ties to Zimbabwe as the West finally starts to notice that Mugabe is a bloodthirsty thug.

Amazing who thug states turn to when the going gets rough. And China obliges. It is a telling trend that China can only get good friends among the world's outcasts. China may gain short term advantages by doing this but I have to believe that this shows China's weakness in appealing for allies. We stand on the side of freedom. Peking stands with those who would run down with tanks the people seeking freedom.

China has chosen poorly. As communists consistently do.
