    I agree. It’s an economic decision and nothing else. Why isn’t the U.S. courting Cuba? They don’t have any money to buy our products. The U.S. has no ground to criticize other nations for human rights abuses while ignoring China’s abysmal record just for the sake of winning a few gold medals and the outside chance of selling SUVs to the party elites.

    I guess it’s time to admit that justice has become a foreign concept in the Western political arena.

    You can’t pursue justice and seek your self at the same time…America has committed itself to pursuing money.

    D,

    Check out this video from Frontline World (PBS). They do a good job showcasing the tensions and persecution that still takes place, but also shows some of the openness towards Christianity that did not exist before.
