Well, your article made sense to me. I'm sorry you're getting flak over it.
And while I'm not equating the two, it's not just the human rights
violations that bother me -- China has some of the most horrific policies
towards animals I've ever heard of in a modern nation.
This made me snicker a little bit. I'm not much of an animal lover, unless they're on my plate with the appropriate sauce. But then I came upon this story that demonstrated to me that the Chinese powers that be are not just cruel to human beings unfortunate to be under their control.
