Smart and Effective

Not so much.

So I was enjoying the nice weather and the last of the farmers' markets this weekend, when I saw a group of people protesting China's occupation of Tibet.

Without irony.

Now, whether or not you're sympathetic to the idea that the PRC should get out of Tibet is beside the point. Here's what struck me as being really stupid about this protest: It seems that. about three and a half years ago, we here in the US gave away our right to bitch about any military occupation of one country by another. Kind of hard to hold the moral high ground on such an issue when you're doing the same thing, no?
