EU & China Arms Talks

In the category of "Oh great, that's what we needed," the European Union is considering lifting its arms embargo to China. The EU had postponed lifting the embargo earlier this year after the US lobbied heavily to keep the embargo in place. You know you're living in screwy times when the Bush administration is actively fighting against a weapons sale, while Europe is considering opening new economic doors for their arms manufacturers in the face of a twenty year old call for China to respect human rights. Hopefully this deal won't get done during the remaining six weeks of Luxembourg's presidency of the EU and the British, whose newly reelected Tony Blair will next assume the presidency, will continue to hold on to demands for China to make real progress with respect to human rights.
