Stupid Letter to the Editor in Today's Pilot

Browsing the online edition of this mornings Virginian-Pilot I stumbled upon a letter to the editor that really missed the mark completely.  I'll post the links for you to read at your leisure.


The author of this letter seems to be gushing about the prospects of U.S.-China relations, while ignoring the fact that China is a bloody, Nazi-like terror state.  Has the author forgotten about China's brutal 50-year long occupation of Tibet, or its bloody oppression of Christians, Falun Gong and others, or the habitual use of torture against anyone who dares question the great wise ones who rule the country, or the murderous "one-child only" policy that mandates sterilization and forced abortion for those who have more than one child, or the offenses against human dignity like the harvesting of organs from condemned prisoners?  In other words, China is the new Soviet Union, fast becoming a communist bully with the big guns to back it up.

On another note, China has been relentlessly building up its military in an effort to become a superpower.  I believe in my heart of hearts that it is only a matter of time until we come into another Cold War, this time with China.  I think it makes sense for us to be prepared, within reason.

Pax Christi, and pray for those oppressed in China.
