China: Human Rights

The Asiapundit observes that according to a think-tank run by the Chinese Communisty Party, Japan's human rights record is by far the worse of the two countries.

“Actually,” the blogger continues, “the official website of the government-sanctioned Chinese Society for Human Rights Studies doesn't really keep official statistics on human rights abuses in China. It does have some glowing reports on how quality of life is improving in China, and several reports noting human rights abuses in the United States.”

    It just seems to me that China should not be opened up for world trade until the admit to the human rights atrosities they have committed against the Falun Dafa. Just because it’s the biggest country in the world, doesn’t mean its O.K. to overlook these violations. You can not turn a blind eye to it and expect everything to just get better.
