…and the ChiComs are upset about this. You may safely assume from my use of the term ‘ChiComs’ that I am bearing up under the weight of their disapproval without suffering any visible strain. Call me an old unreconstructed Cold Warrior if you like, but I think that if the Chinese government spent less time worrying about the movements of the exiled spiritual/temporal leader of one of its conquered territories and more time on turning the People’s Republic of China into something better than the kind of country that one associates with “People’s Republic” then life would be brighter all around.
[UPDATE] There’s just something fun about pissing off a foreign Commie-lover. I note ‘foreign’ because, given that Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people and everything, you usually can’t rely on them having the minimum necessary brainpower to recognize when they’ve been insulted in a language not their own.
