"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Hey! They EU just figured out that Human Rights and China do not mix.

European Union leaders at trade and diplomacy talks in Denmark have expressed their concern about China's human rights record. On the sidelines of the Asia-Europe meeting in Copenhagen, EU leaders told China's Prime Minister Zhu Rongji they are concerned about China's use of the death penalty, torture and its treatment of ethnic minorities.

"Wow! You mean China oppresses citizens and forces them into labor camps and just doesn't give a damn about all of the Human Rights Treaties they have signed and Human Rights Organizations they belong to? Why were we not informed of this sooner? We must pass some resolutions stating our concern and urging them to adhere to all of the treaties they have agreed to."
