China: Sword vs. Pen

China once again displays its contempt for human rights by jailing dissident Hu Jia for three and a half years.

Hu's writings are critical of the Red Chinese, who apparently don't like being taken to task for, say, torturing two people who had complained about their homes being seized illegally.

But they'll get away with it, like they've gotten away with Tibet and the forthcoming Olympic games. They own American debt, they make products for the American market, they have spies on American soil, and they have prominent American politicians in their pocket.

Most Favoured Nation, indeed.

They will always succeed because they have the stomach for brutality.
