Be more like Taiwan, Bush urges Beijing This is an article that should raise a few eyebrows. I don't know if George is the one we want championing this fledgling democracy. His experiments in democracy in his own country have fallen well short of the mark and his adventures abroad in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Haiti are at best suspect.
By, "well short of the mark," I mean like aiming at the target and shooting yourself in the foot. By, "suspect," I mean like a pedophile on the playground.
Having Ol' George saying you've got a model democracy is more or less the kiss of death. Like Milli Vanilli telling you that you've got a great singing career in front of you.
Now if Bush was congratulating us on our recent torturing exploits or successfully pouring chemicals on people, or lauding a new napalm-like weapon of ours, that would be different. Those would be compliments that we could take to the bank; compliments that would mean something to the world community.
