The last time 2 completely opposite forces met, it ended in the formation of mud. Earth and Water. Only this time it’s the 43rd President of the United States and the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet (occupied by the Peoples Republic of Communist China). So what do you get when 2 leaders who represent completely different ideologies meet, greet, and exchange awards?
One is known for corporate greed, lack of common sense, and wars. The other is ummm well far from that but good news is that they share one thing in common – they both strive to detach themselves from something.
Bush – detachment from the the average American and common sense.
Dalai Lama – detachment from worldly goods and stupidity.
One attacked nations with guns and bombs. The other had his country invaded in 1949 with guns and bombs, and has been in hiding since. WOW! Enough disparity to create an entire show on tv based on those 2 characters.
On a more serious note, Bush is expected to award the Dalai Lama the Congressional Gold Medal today (Wednesday) which needed 2/3 of votes from the House and Senate. With the Democrats dominating those areas, the choice was no big surprise but China wasn’t happy with all this Dalai Lama goodwill shown by our “War President”.
Not surprisingly enough, China was actually “furious” and “offended” that George Dubya Bush decided to show some signs of maturity. In response to Bush’s meeting with the pro-peace Tibetan leader-in-exile, China withdrew from a multi-national peace negotiation meeting for Iran. An unofficial report from Beijing stated that China already followed the “middle path” since too much good couldn’t be good. So, one of the “good” had to be unplugged and the red commies were glad to oblige. China pulled-out a similar tactic (annual human rights dialog) after Germany’s Chancellor Merkel’s meeting with the Dalai Lama.
The Communist state’s one-sided foreign minister
Ying Yang demanded “the US cancel the extremely wrong arrangements” and insisted that “If the Dalai Lama can receive such an award, there must be no justice or good people in the world.”
Seriously. What the hell is Yang smoking? Not enough Ying for the Yang? Is Bush coming to his senses? Did the Senate finally start working? Are we going to see a new Duke Nukem game? Who will win the Ping Pong championship next time around? When will I get money to buy the Nintendo Wii? How many more completely senseless questions are we going to see?
