It's true that, historically, China has kept itself within a limited, albeit large, sphere of influence, but Milo's, and my point, was that, from a human rights point of view, China has had even less scruples than the West. It was, after all, under the British parliamentary system, flawed as it may have been, that the idea of democracy and human rights were spread across the globe. Under Mao's brutal system, millions of Chinese went to their deaths without so much as trial. Children were (are) sold into slavery, indentured to factories where they were/are locked in dormitories after toiling long hours under conditions that has not been known in the West since the industrial revolution. As a world power, I want nothing to do with them.

I dispise both Tony Blair and George Bush, not because conditions are worse in the West than in the East, but because they were the inheritors of an evolving system that should have progressed beyond torture camps and cowardly and illegal invasions of sovereign nations. I dispise them because they betrayed us and all that the West could have been, but, now, will never be. I dispise Tony Blair most of all because he is/was an intelligent man, educated in a system with a tradition of fair play and honour. But rather than picking up the mantle of an evolving decency in world affairs he chose to sell out to criminals with unbounded greed. He is worse than Bush because he knew better. Bush is just a below average hood ornament who probably couldn't have identified Iraq on a map until his handlers showed him where it was.
