Enlightened Comment of the Day: Michael Goldfarb (Worldwide Standard) wins the prize for his "A Tale of Two Oaths" posts, which echoes an earlier post of mine on the difference between serving one's country and serving a Communist dictatorship.
Ignorant Comment of the Day: By contrast, Mario Loyola's stunning refusal to recognize that Communist China's diplomatic maneuverings on Iran is simply an attempt by the cadres' to protect their longtime ally takes the breath away (National Review Online - The Corner).
Communist China upset at United States for catching their corrupt bank: Communist China's chose to "deeply regret the ruling by the United States" (BBC) against the Macau-based Banco Delta Asia for its hand in "North Korean money-laundering and counterfeiting." Of course, the cadres' expressed no regret for allowing the bank to engage in these practices in the first place.
More on the Communists' Korean colony and the Beijing surrender: Ironically (and sadly), the ruling against Banco Delta Asia "could allow North Korea to recover millions of dollars in frozen accounts and remove a key obstacle in nuclear negotiations with the communist state" (Washington Times). The Stalinists are already insisting they won't do anything to stop their nuclear weapons program unless the money is released (One Free Korea), leading some to wonder if they will ever do it (Daily NK and United Press Int'l via Washington Times). Meanwhile, the State Department makes clear Stalinist North Korea's march off the list of terrorist states will not be quick (OFK), and the SNK slave labor fiasco ensnares Disney (OFK).
More on Communist China and the rest of the world: Boycott 2008 rips the United Nations "Human Rights Council" and approvingly notes the actions of Smith College Professor Eric Reeves in linking the Darfur slow-motion massacre to Communist China's continuing support for the Sudanese regime in respective posts.
