Chinese govt. jerks on purpose, not accidentally

The Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb, an interesting dude, weighs in as well. When the Chinese told the USS Kitty Hawk it could not dock on Thanksgiving in Hong Kong, thereby screwing a bunch of sailor's families who spent their own money to meet the ship there, it had to be a mistake, right?

Guess not

                        BEIJING - China's last-minute cancellation of a U.S. Navy visit to Hong Kong was not the result of a misunderstanding, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Thursday, adding that ties had been "disturbed and harmed" by Congress' honoring of the Dalai Lama and U.S. arms sales to Taiwan.

Spokesman Liu Jianchao denounced an earlier report from Washington that said Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi told President Bush the incident was a misunderstanding.

We need to get our ducks in a line with these guys, because they are starting to cause trouble again. The sheer size of their economy demands it and Wal-Mart can stock it's stores with US products.
