Why are we, as a world, so slow to criticize China's treatment of it's people. Virtually nothing is said by the American press!! Face it people, it is still RED CHINA!! Their a joke when it comes to human rights.

And the government of China grips our economy tightly by the collar thanks to the amount of our debt that they control. The current debt crisis is nothing compared to the mischief that China could wreak on our economy by calling in some of that debt.

Cuz the US government is in debt to China for over 3 trillion dollars. Same situation with Venezuela where the US owes them 1 trillion dollars and Saudi Arabia also 1 trillion dollars is owed by the US.
The US government will not cut off the hand that feeds them.

Considering what the US has done to the people of Iraq, I do not think we have much of a right to criticize any government.

There are a lot of people all over the globe who make bad decisions. I don't agree with a lot of things China does...their general morals over there...but hey we are all flawed. All you can do is wait and see if people will better themselves and their decisions.

What??!!!! dude..what about Guantanamo? a real concentration camp, like the one the nazis used to have....what about Irak and Afganistan?? what about the death penalty in many states?..I don't think America has much to say about human rights to the rest of the world, there's no moral left at all...

If I was american I'd be more worried about how the press is controlled by the goverment than why they don't write much about what is going on in China...

The US government 'does not' control the US press. The press does checks and balances as per the 1st Amendment. The press investigates and reveals the fallacies of the government.
