China's shortcomings.....

China should negotiate with Cuba, and set up a Yankee style 'terrorist' camp.

How convenient it would be to just lock all the arseholes we don't like without tr ...


Obama is no George Bush.  Since his presidency, he has reversed many of Bush's policies at Gitmo and has been trying to shut it down.  Prisoners have gone to trial, and not military tribunals, but real trials where they are afforded defense attorneys.  

But I do agree it's a bit hypocritical.   Probably just a cold war leftover.  I think it's time we move beyond all that.

I don't watch TV much at all, but tonight I saw a glimpse of the meeting. I cringed when Obama said that China needs to look at human rights. Although he is right, it was insensitive. He should hav ...


I totally agreed with you.

Every country has shortcomings, guaranteed.  President Hu is a wise & confident man for stating China’s
shortcomings.  He has earned more respect from people as a result of his admission.  It doesn’t mean
that he kowtowed to the US though, far from it. I think he conducted himself in a very dignified way.

Sorry, what's changed?

Have they let out, or given these 'prisoners' a fair trial?


I must have missed the news!
Yeah, do update me.


Obama has been trying from day one to close down gitmo for good.  Unfortunately, he has been met with a lot of opposition.  The plan has been to move everything stateside and follow the geneva conventions.  Many have been tried, and some released, but it's still a battle to get it closed down for good.  I actually can't believe how many people in congress have been fighting Obama on this.  His plan was to close it down as soon as he got into office.

Obama is the President, elected by the God fearing, freedom loving good citizens of the United states.

You won't get any arguments from me on this one.  I've opposed Guantanamo from day one.

I just don't see why President Hu should take up the visit.  After all, it's the US that needs China more.
China is the banker of USA.  It just puzzles me.

He wants better relations, so do we.  We still have issues we need to work on to make that happen.
