The Peking Insurance Bureau

China looks at tiny Australia and says, "Nice little country you've got there. It would be a shame if anything was to happen to it." (Tip to Instapundit.)

In what can only be construed as a direct threat to a top U.S. ally, Song Xiaojun, a "retired" Chinese general, told the Sydney Morning Herald that "Australia has to find a godfather sooner or later."

"Australia always has to depend on somebody else, whether it is to be the 'son' of the U.S. or 'son' of China," Song said, adding that Australia had best choose China because it all "depends on who is more powerful and based on the strategic environment."

Remember, when you buy term life insurance from China, it just means your life is set by their terms.
