Hoisting China’s Flag Over the White House: Hard to Avoid

The Chinese are proud of this:

The national flag of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be hoisted at the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on September 20, media reported Sunday.

Chinese associations in the United States had applied to hold a ceremony in front of the US President’s residence to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of PRC.

Chen Ronghua, chairman of Fujian Association of the United States, told reporters that their application was approved not only because of the sound Sino-US relations but also because China is a responsible country.

“Many Americans admire China due to the success of last year’s Beijing Olympics,” said Chen.

I’m sure that many Americans will resent it, but face it: as much money as we owe these people, how can we avoid it?

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7, KJV.
