Xinhua: The Sadness of Washington Politics

Xinhua published an article strongly objecting to the Obama Administration’s decision to sell weapons to Taiwan. It delivered an even harsher criticism of the U.S. Congressional attempt to pass the “Taiwan Policy Act of 2011,” initiated by Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. The article calls the “Taiwan Policy Act of 2011” a "tumor" which will bring serious damage to US-China relations, but says that Washington does not have the courage to stop it. It warns “those hot headed Congressional representatives not to go too far.”
