What kind of reception will Bush get? Perhaps a steaming platter of dog or perhaps a horse penis, both delicacies in China.
In a speech highlighting America’s historic freedoms and challenges ahead in Asia, President Bush had boldly pushed China to enact a free press, free assembly, freedom of religion and labor rights in China, and spoke out sharply against its imprisonment of its citizens, human rights advocates and religious leaders. He said he wasn’t trying to antagonize China, but called such reform the only path the U.S. rival can take to reach its full potential.
This sets the stage for an interesting reception when he attends the opening ceremonies Friday evening and meets with Hu on Sunday after attending church.
No other U.S. president has been so blunt with the Chinese in modern history.
