China Lashes Out at American ‘Baby-kissing’ Lawmakers

From the Financial Times:

US lawmakers are “baby kissing” incompetents who risk “poisoning the atmosphere” with China with their proposals to force Beijing to increase the value of its currency, according to Chinese official state media.

In this latest evolution of Chinese official insults one can clearly see the signs of a rising superpower. Gone are the accusations of imperialism and plaintive cries that US actions have “hurt the feelings” of 1.3bn Chinese people.

Mocking the very core of American prime-time popular democracy, this is the rhetoric of a more assertive, more confident nation assured of its destiny after the humbling of the west in the US-made financial crisis.
