Dancing With Fools (II)

On China & Russia: Not bowing to the West is one thing, not bowing to decency another. Not standing united against present or future nuclear thugs, bravado national blackmailers, genocidal clerics and generals, murder squad sponsors, mass poisoners of the narcotic persuasion and incompetent oppressors anywhere is destructive politics and the result not just of petulance and false pride but of deadly short-sightedness. And temporary economic advantage never a valid excuse, despite recent displays of veneer this still a matter of Mao and Stalin-Grade D thought. What China does in Africa and both of them in Iran is not good business; does the restiveness of their own parallel minorities not give them enough food for more durable thought?
