Dubya apologized to the Chinese after they imprisoned the crew of our Navy EP-3 and stripped the plane of its electronic gear. Then he acceded to a Chinese demand for payment for the crew’s food and lodging. Bush then said nothing when Beijing attacked at least one of our satellites in 2006, and he’s been quiet about China’s daily cyber assaults against our military and civilian networks. He has failed to protect American workers against grossly unfair Chinese trade practices, refusing to demand reciprocity. He looked the other way as the Chinese supplied adulterated medicine and toxic products to American consumers, killing some of them. He almost always took Beijing’s side against democratic Taiwan. President Bush said nothing while China supplied small arms and components for roadside bombs to insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. His officials talk about China being a “responsible stakeholder” while it supports the nuclear weapons ambitions of Tehran and Pyongyang by blocking effective international sanctions at every turn and even supplying technology and materials.Palestinian terrorists no doubt wish they received such consideration from President Bush. Then again, John Branchizio, Mark Parson, and John Martin Linde Jr. were murdered by Palestinian terrorists on October 15, 2003 and nothing has been done--or said.
