FinnMacCool said:No but we probably do anyways. We are in debt to China which I think is bullshit. Its a shame since China is a huge hr violoator and we probably are going to have a war with them in like 15 years. You can thank Bush for that.
What makes you say that?
steen said:Well, the repugnican shrubbie claims that we go to war over human rights violations. So we can't really trade with them, can we now.
Kandahar said:Yes, we absolutely should trade with human rights violators. Or more accurately, we absolutely should trade with companies and citizens of countries that happened to be governed by human rights violators. It isn't their fault that their country is oppressed, and it's not as though (in most cases) they're going to suddenly rise up against their government without American trade; they're just going to become poorer.
Free trade leads to wealthier nations, and wealthier nations tend to pay more respect to human rights.
Huh? That aside, what does the political leaning have to do with human rights violations? That is not a political ideology issue. We see this in all political leanings.Hornburger said:uhh...isn't Finn socialist? lol
