Compassion: the West Versus China

Dori Samadzai Bonner was born in Afghanistan in 1977 and, at the age of 10, fled with her family to the United States. Her father appealed to an American immigration judge to obtain political asylum. Listen to her story about their day in court.

Representing the compassion of the citizens, Western governments often grant political asylum to refugees who would be tortured or killed upon returning to their native lands.

By contrast, the Chinese government (in Beijing), representing the barbarism of its citizens, regularly sends refugees back to torture and ultimate death in North Korea.

Chinese "morality" assaults Western notions of right and wrong. As the Chinese economy expands, its people will export their "morality" to the rest of the world. Just as the Chinese ignore the cries of the Southeast Asians who work themselves to death in sweatshops run by Chinese bosses, the Chinese will ignore the cries of the victims brutalized by the authoritarian governments whom Beijing bribes with money and weapons.

There is precedent for this atrocious behavior. The Chinese supported the Khmer Rouge financially and militarily. It then proceeded to massacre 1.7 million Cambodians.
