    Hillary Clinton Diplomacy: Newspaper Slams Clinton For Comments On Democracy

    Europe is in the doldrums. There is already a recession in U.S. Asia is booming and bustling. Democracy can take a back seat. Tackle the bread and butter issues first instead of going on a tour to preach democracy.

    BEIJING, July 12 (Reuters) - China's top newspaper slammed U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday for comments she made lauding democracy and implicitly criticising restrictions in China, saying those Asian countries that ape U.S. democracy were doomed to fail.

    Earlier this week, Clinton held up Mongolia's sometimes messy politics as a democratic model for Asia. While she did not directly name China, her comments appeared aimed partly at Beijing.

    In China's first response to her remarks, ruling Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily said Clinton was acting as a "preacher for human rights" by praising certain countries to obliquely attack China.

    "Who is the United States to haughtily appraise Asia's democratic position?" the newspaper said in a commentary.

    Would you say that democracy will follow if bread and butter are aplenty?

    We have plenty of bread and butter but both U.S.A and Singapore are oceans apart in the sence of freedom and democracy.

    Some people don’t desire freedom or democracy. Here in the US, it is becoming less important thanks to the likes of Hillary Clinton.
