Im willing to believe

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

I’m willing to believe that China is a peaceful and even a benign force in East Asia.

But is it “work[ing] to secure the freedom of its own people”?

So says President Bush.

From his remarks to the Australian parliament …

We are encouraged by China’s cooperation in the war against terror. We are working with China to ensure the Korean peninsula is free of nuclear weapons. We see a China that is stable and prosperous, a nation that respects the peace of its neighbors and works to secure the freedom of its own people.

Isn’t that laying it on a bit thick?
