Democratic leader to Yahoo CEO: China policy is ‘spineless’
That headline on this article makes me want to puke. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Congressmen called Yahoo execs “spineless” due to their participation with the Chinese government in a censorship issue. Information provided by Yahoo led to the arrest and incarceration of one or two journalists.
While that is certainly spineless and shows greed and profit are more important to Yahoo than are human rights (big surprise), for a group of lawmakers who are directly responsible for a war, untold tens of thousands of deaths, millions being displaced from their homes and their country, torture, loss of human decency, etc etc, etc, to have the guts to rave against them for two journalists just shows what a bunch of useless assholes they are. ALL OF THEM.
We are not in Iraq today because of George Bush. We are there because of a congress that is more concerned with lining their pockets with lobbyist dollars, accepting bribes, living the good life and paying off old friends then they are with any soldiers lives or any grieving families or any sick children or any tortured detainees. They don’t give a shit about any of that as long as THEY GET THEIRS.
