Bush treads where Clark fears to go

Dalai Lama honor stokes U.S.-Chinese tensions – CNN.com

George W. Bush has today awarded the Dalai Lama with a Congressional Gold Medal. The CGM is the America’s highest civilian honor and now by giving it to the Dalai Lama, George Bush has seriously pissed off the Chinese.

Good Job.

Remember this is the person Helen Clark “couldn’t” meet officially in case the poor widdle Chinese got upset. She should take a leaf our of W’s book.
[quote] “Americans cannot look to the plight of the religiously oppressed and close our eyes or turn away,” Bush said.

Calling the Dalai Lama a “universal symbol of peace and tolerance, a shepherd to the faithful and a keeper of the flame for his people,”[/quote]

Peace and tolerance except from China and Clark.
