  • EU Backing Down on Lifting Ban on Arms Sale to China

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on March 22nd, 2005 (All posts by )

    Here and here. The recent Chinese threats against Taiwan, and American Congressional threats to stop arms transfers to Europe, and whatever W and Condi told these b*stards when the door was closed seems to be working. Good.

    “British officials have signaled increasing reluctance to advance the process, because of China’s slow progress on human rights and the new law on Taiwan. Some European governments no longer wish to jeopardize the recent thaw in transatlantic relations over the embargo.” “Diplomats said the UK was sounding out other governments in support of a postponement, possibly until 2006.”

    Good to see the British taking the lead on this. Britain’s defense and intelligence partnership with the USA is far too valuable to throw away for a few renminbi from the Chicoms.

      Is this the kind of language UC is now teaching its students to use when referring to US allies?

      If so, I’m glad I don’t live in Hyde Park anymore.

      “Which one of you bastards called that bastard a bastard?”

      Allies? Wake up. If someone sells arms to our primary military adversary, they are not allies. France is not America’s ally, it is an opponent. They have made this clear over and over and over again. Opposing the United States is, for them, not situation-specific but a matter of principle. That is the course they have chosen. We should make sure they suffer for it.

      I’m glad I don’t live in Hyde Park anymore, too. But not because people are mean to France there.

      What’s this about Hyde Park? :)
