China: The Art of Sublety

The Sun Bin blogger takes issue with Chinese president Hu Jintao's choice of gift for George W. Bush: Sun Tzu's The Art of War.

“This is the best choice of gift by a Chinese leader. ‘I am not your enemy. I want you to win. I am sure I would be benefited if you choose the best path for yourself and I am not intimidated if you get that right path'…Send a few copies to [Taiwanese president] Mr. Chen Shui Bian as well,” the blogger writes.
