    It worked.

    The Mongol invasion of China lasted over 6 decades and particularly involved the defeat of the Jin Dynasty, Western Xia, the Dali Kingdom, and the Southern Song, which finally fell in the year 1279; the year that the Mongols had claimed the total conquest of China.

    I dont see anything that says the US apologized to China for the new Arizona law. I see a state dept official who said China wanted to discuss US problems with human rights, but that quote contained nothing specific about Arizona. Then I see the same official commenting to reporters that the Obama admin doesn't like the law and saying it was mentioned in talks with China, not what that discussion about the law was about and certainly he didnt say it was an apology.

    ''And China is definitely not the country that we should be apologizing to. Have they forgotten about Tibet? ''

    I dont think the apology includes any admittance that the US is worse than China, or that it means that it is worse than or as bad as China, where Human Rights are concerned. It is simply an acknowledgement by the US, that it fell short of adhering to the international code of human rights standards, and that it was a mistake which the US does not intend to repeat.

    The leading Human Rights countries of the world cant reasonably continue to negotiate for the same standards to be upheld in all countries, if they do not take responsibility for their own mistakes.

    I can reconcile it just fine. How about discussing the topic now - answer the poll and move on.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm sure a word choices never stopped you before when you agreed with them. Why the difficulty now?
