The latest sad commentary on the intensity of American Chinaphobia:

At the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Washington, D.C., this week — a “forum designed to foster closer cooperation between the two global powers,” according to The Wall Street Journal — China’s state counselor, Dai Bingguo, felt he had to re-assure the American audience that Beijing was not “biding its time” with “some hidden agenda.” Americans “should not lose any sleep over China,” he said.

One focus of the Dialogue was managing U.S. debt in order to protect Beijing’s trillion-dollar investment in the U.S. dollar. Beijing and Washington also promised to resume full military ties, following recent disagreements over U.S. arms sales to Taiwan.

    In other news, Hillary Clinton tells Russia not to lose any sleep about NATO and American influence in Ukraine and Georgia. She even pinky swore, so you know she really meant it.
