Hu’s visit nothing to celebrate – Nancy Pelosi

From Los Angeles Times (link):

TODAY, PRESIDENT will roll out the red carpet for Chinese President Hu Jintao, a leader whose brutally crushes , democracy and the religious expression of the Chinese and Tibetan people. Hu will receive the best welcome U.S. money can buy, including full military honors and a 21-gun salute.

This is the same regime that provides military technologies to countries that threaten international security, including Iran and North Korea. The same regime that threatens Taiwan with a military attack, detains and tortures Chinese people for expressing their political and religious beliefs and arrests Tibetans for carrying a picture of the Dalai Lama.

While open dialogue is essential, many of us on both sides of the aisle in Congress oppose the celebratory nature of this official visit.
