Ouch ... that's gonna leave a mark:
PM scolded for delayed China visit
BEIJING–With words at once blunt and pointed, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao criticized Prime Minister Stephen Harper Thursday, admonishing him for not visiting China earlier during his time as Canadian leader.
Harper sat stone-faced during the rebuke – the words clearly stung...
The rebuke – rare in relations between two nations – came just a day after the Chinese media had given Harper a cool-to-cold reception, criticizing him on a wide range of issues.
In unrelated news, conservatives everywhere are still going batshit, dick-yanking crazy with rage over Barack Obama's bow, describing it as a diplomatic faux pas of hideous, unimaginable proportion.
