I'd forgive dePfeffel a lot if he stood up to them and tried to help break apart the Empire that we call China and the aggressively expansionist regime now controlling it.

There will be the unknowing and the unthinking in Britain and the west who will frame this as the dying embers of British Imperialism while missing the much bigger evil in the room of what is an agglomeration of states fused together by central domination from Beijing.

It's sad that the only person in power to publicly acknowledge how badly wrong we've got it with China in recent years has been Trump. A bitter irony if ever there was one.

If anyone wants a better appreciation of what we face in China, Chris Patten has a good handle.

In the 80s, he was whining about Japan...

Nothing about the agglomeration of states fused together by central domination from Moscow?

It does seem a tad unlikely doesn't it? Which is why I was prepared to go so far out on a limb re forgiving him. :D It ain't going to happen.

I'm disgusted he got let off. The trial jury had no doubt he was guilty when they convicted him.

He does have a way with words. Just not an intelligent way.

Doing my bit, Trump goes multilingual:

Surprising -- I didn't think he was even monolingual.
