McCain on Tibet

A nice direct statement from McCain (unusual for American politicians, not unusual for him) on what's going on in China. It's troublesome that American politicans (particularly Republicans) have until now shied away from calling attention to China's dismal human rights record, or (for whatever strange reason) its emergence as a world power. It's also smart that in his contacts with Sarkozy McCain is clearly distancing himself from the transatlantic name-calling that went on at the start of the Iraq War.
