I wrote in past columns that an American who deals with foreign policy must be a man or a woman of genius, or else the United States will perish along with the other free countries.
To show how dangerous the “People’s Republic of China” is, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of California, a Republican, compared China to Nazi Germany. He thus shocked many Americans who saw the PRC as a peaceful country.
Early this year, Chinese president and Communist Party leader Hu Jintao, on his eighth visit to the United States, was treated by President Barack Obama to a lavish White House state dinner, the first for a Chinese leader in more than 13 years.
Some U.S. congressional leaders, however, abstained from the event, making it clear that the Chinese president was no friend, highlighting tension between Congress and the world’s second largest economic power when President Obama was trying to strengthen ties.
Rohrabacher called Hu an “oppressor” and a “murderer,” questioning why Obama was giving respectful treatment to a “monstrous regime.”
