President Bush and Australian Prime Minister Rude discussed about issues including situation in Tibet. The P.M. from Australia cited the sovereignty of China re Tibet but Dalai Lama aims his goal for so-called Independence. Chinese leaders are aware of the sovereignty of China and action was taken to maintain law and order. Media distortation about Tibet may be attributed to the language problems i.e. truth may be lost in translation and the Prime Minister jof Australia knows the Chinese language and understand China better with his background in Chinese culture. I would hope that more Americans would make efforts to study the Chinese language to be able to perceive Sino-American economics with better understanding. "A Glimpse of the Chinese Language" in English is dedicated for such a significant purpose for English-speaking peoples in the 21st century. Cf. www.Amazon.com or www.rand.org for reference for cultural enrichment.
US Intelligence Chief Mike McConnell from Furman University, Greenville,South Carolina is a hard-working scholar and he cited the Consitution of the United States re the Preamble of "We, the People of the United States..." In other words,authorities are derived from the people. I am aware of Presidential candidate Senator Obama is a scholar of the Constitutional Law if and when he is nominated and elected in November 2008. The educated scholar from Furman University is proud to be born in the USA,a land of opportunity. That is not untrue. However,he may be reminded of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution Section 1. All persons born or naturalized...for citizenship rights not to be abridged. As I sent my blog in the past that discrimination against a citizen of the United States is a violation of the Constitution of the USA. We shall find out the will of the American voters in November to have change for a better America to honor citizens of all races as Americans to honor our Constitution.
