Annoyingly Naive "Activists"

My eyes rolled as I read this Yahoo News Item: Activists 'shocked' at Clinton stance on China rights
WASHINGTON (AFP) – Amnesty International and a pro-Tibet group voiced shock Friday after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.

Paying her first visit to Asia as the top US diplomat, Clinton said the United States would continue to press China on long-standing US concerns over human rights such as its rule over Tibet.

"But our pressing on those issues can't interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis," Clinton told reporters in Seoul just before leaving for Beijing.

Why are they shocked? Let me lay it out for them:

1. Hillary Clinton does not have priniciples or ideology. She is a power vessel and will do whatever she thinks the opinion polls, and circumstances dictate. She was for the Iraq War/ she was against the Iraq War. She was pro-Nafta/ Not so pro-Nafta. To name just two. She doesn't care about Tibet, never did.

2. What is the US to do? Full scale invasion? Start World War III over Tibet?

3. The US owes a hell of a lot of money to China and is asking for more. They are in no position to tell China to do anything.

Got that?
