Clinton Abroad

Hope & Change Inc. hits the road. Former fifth or sixth best Democratic candidate for party leadership, Hillary Clinton, reassured the world that her boss's administration was on track with an exacting foreign policy of the same old shit in a brand new box.

Human rights violations by China cannot block the possibility of significant cooperation between Washington and Beijing on the global economic crisis, climate change and security threats like North Korea's nuclear program, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday.

Yup. No chance of change so fuck all them poor bastards, there's bidniss to get done. Mind you, until the United States gets cracking on prosecutions and justice in the wake of nearly a decade of human rights abuses, war crimes and an assortment of high crimes and misdemeanors, they really don't have much in the way of moral high ground to preach from. I wonder what the Chinese equivalent of a beaver tail is.

Of course Clinton is simply being realistic, China won't change at the behest of America or any other spent, former superpower. Why the hell should they when they hold America's mortgage papers and are more than capable of manufacturing a lighter to hold to them.
