The United States just agree to place 2,500 Marines in Australia as a signal to the Chinese that even the Obama Administration recognizes, perhaps dimly, that something is amiss in Asia and the Pacific. (See the informative AP story that seems to be doing some chest thumping for the Administration.) In any case, China is in the news, and, as we know, its One Child Policy is a brutal offense to human rights whose enforcement requires the sort of intrusive police state that seems to get little attention in the American press. That is merely one type of oppression which the Chinese people face. The Washington Times has been running a series of articles from a new book, Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama is Hastening Americas Decline and Ushering A Century of Chinese Domination, by Brett Decker and William Triplett II. If you are doing some Christmas book shopping for someone who has an interest in China, take a look at Brett Deckers useful list of Ten Books You Need to Read about the Chinese Threat.
