US hunt for war criminals should begin at home

16 0 1

The hypocrisy of some American politicians knows no bounds. But few can rival the Tweedledee and Tweedledum of the Republican Party, Senator Marco Rubio and House of Representatives member Chris Smith, when it comes to China.

I am sure Beijing is not acting nicely in Xinjiang, though China does face multiple terrorist and separatist threats there. The two US politicians want their government to impose sanctions on Chinese officials complicit in human rights abuses in the province.

Maybe those mainland officials do deserve sanctions, but I am certain Rubio and Smith are in no position to judge. If they want to hunt for war criminals, they can just walk across the streets from their offices, to the Pentagon and the White House. Plenty of generals and security officials there would qualify.
