the US and Human rights in China -ermmm

Chinese President Hu Jintao 'ignores' human rights question...

Mmmm not that I'm defending China, because it's always annoyed me how the West has been looking the other way over China's attitudes over the past few years, and all because the West likes cheap consumer goods - but it doesn't really behove American senators to bash China over human rights. I mean where were the complaints over Guantanamo bay? or the fact the US has the largest prison population on the planet thanks to their idiotic 'three strikes and you're out' policy, or Police tasering people for minor offences, (sometimes to death) and what about the treatment the TSA routinely now hands out to airline travellers? Hmmmm?
