Hullo, Pot? Kettle Here....

China Rips U.S. Claims on Weapons Sales

BEIJING -- China on Friday denounced accusations by top U.S. officials that it was selling weapons to Iran and North Korea amid nuclear tensions with the two regimes. Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang called the criticism "groundless and irresponsible," the official Xinhua News Agency said. No other details were given.

Peter Rodman, assistant secretary of defense for international security, on Thursday urged China to re-evaluate its relationship with allies Iran and North Korea, two countries with which the United States is locked in tense nuclear standoffs.

He said Washington sees in China "a general willingness to transfer a wide variety of technologies to customers around the world."

Yes, naturally, after all, we're such a mature and discerning country ourselves...

Who gave Saddam his WMDs?

Or wanted the Taliban to make money off a gas pipeline?

Or made Osama what he is today?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, one begins to see a pattern here...
