    Investors Business Daily:

    “While Chinese President Hu flaunted his country’s power during his Western tour, his No. 2 economy raked in billions in Western aid. That’s right. We’re still subsidizing China. Why?

    According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, foreign aid to China totals $2.6 billion a year. The biggest donor is Japan, followed by Germany, France and Britain, then the U.S. All of these countries, meanwhile, are in debt to China and running massive deficits.

    U.S. aid, at $65 million a year, is relatively small thanks to sanctions imposed following Beijing’s 1989 military crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square. Still, why are we sending China any succor at all?”

    -Holy shit. We’re giving China aid money?!
