Golf Clapping Here

Pres. Bush has spoken out in "a blunt condemnation" of China's human rights policies.

I'm glad.

It's a step in the right direction.

But I still wonder what the right course of action is. According to the article:
...prominent Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, who has been jailed several times for his views and for his role in the 1989 student-led demonstrations in Tiananmen Square, said China’s leaders were likely to take a relatively sanguine approach.

"Whatever he says, the Chinese government won’t care too much about the content. The most important thing is that he is attending. Whatever he says is less important," he said.
And I'm not quite sure which of 1,000 ways to analyze that...
