Obama: A Strong Prosperous Communist China Can Be a "Source of Strength For the Community of Nations" (Video)
Iran thinks thinks so, too…
Barack Obama told an Asian audience today that a strong prosperous communist China “can be a source of strength for the community of nations.”
If you believe that a powerful Marxist regime is a good thing then this makes sense.
The BBC reported:
President Barack Obama says the US “does not seek to contain” China’s rise as a big player on the world stage.
“The rise of a strong, prosperous China can be a source of strength for the community of nations,” Mr Obama said in a speech in Japan’s capital, Tokyo.
Better US ties with Beijing do not mean a weakening of relations with US allies in the region, he said.
Describing himself as the first “Pacific” US president, he said the US was committed to the area’s security.
Mr Obama is now in Singapore, where he is to attend an Asia-Pacific economic summit.
So, is there any communist regime that Obama does not trust?
