For Beijing, a
most unpleasant sight: House Speaker Pelosi on a visit
to the Dalai Lama and Tibet's
government-in-exile and on Friday.

The Hypocrisy of
and 'Those of Her Ilk' …
Is there any
chance - if only to salvage any hope for a successful Olympic Games, Beijing
will see reason in regard to its treatment of the Tibetans - or in fact in
regard to criticism from anyone? It
seems not. In regard to Speaker Pelosi's visit with the Dalai Lama in Northern
India on Friday, Wang Jiaquan writes for China's
rigidly state-controlled Xinhua news agency, 'For
years, Pelosi and those of her ilk have peddled human rights as part of a set
of universal values for bringing all countries under an international framework
dominated by a handful of powers, but their double standards have turned the universal
fantasy into a lie.'

BEIJING: Nancy Pelosi challenged her own conscience when on
Friday, the U.S. House Speaker condemned China's legitimate actions against
violence in Tibet, but turned a blind eye to the merciless rioters WATCH .
Apathetic to the innocent victims of the recent Lhasa rioting, Pelosi lost her own "moral authority to
speak about human rights" when she acted as a defender of arsonists,
looters and killers.
While in Dharamsala enjoying the
hospitality of the orchestrators of the Lhasa riots, the U.S. Speaker became a muckraker of her own
hypocrisy, when out of so-called concerns about human rights in Tibet she
pompously condemned China.
The death toll of the Lhasa
rioting reached 18 on Saturday, with the news that one family, including an
eight-month-old boy, had been burned to death by rioters in their home.
But in her attack on China, Pelosi showed no interest in denouncing human
rights violators among the rioters.
Pelosi's double standards reveal her motives and those of
her kind: their indignation is reserved only for occasions when their interests
are best served.
"Human rights police" like Pelosi are habitually
bad tempered and ungenerous when it comes to finding a lever to tarnish China,
refusing to check their facts and dig for the truth of the case. Who is it that
is really trampling on human rights? China or the rioters?

Her views are like so many other politicians and the Western
media. Beneath the double standards hides their intention to serve the interest
groups which stand behind them and which want to contain or smear China.
Pelosi also pierced - unintentionally - the bubble of
so-called universal values - values which weren't broached at all during her
speech in Dharamsala.

For years, Pelosi and those of her ilk have peddled human
rights as part of a set of universal values for bringing all countries under an
international framework dominated by a handful of powers, but their double
standards have turned the universal fantasy into a lie.
When Pelosi lashed out in the name of justice in Dharamsala, didn't her own conscience also feel the whip?
