China and the New Bush

Rachel DiCarlo has an excellent piece on pro-democracy activist Yang Jianli, who has now been sitting in a Chinese jail for over 1,000 days.

Remember, Bush said yesterday that "All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: the United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for liberty, we will stand with you."

It will be interesting to watch how Bush's policy towards China now shifts. Or doesn't.
