Anyway, when I read the following in Monday morning’s paper, I thought it was a joke. So I read it again. And again. Then I sat there, shaking my head, realizing that this little exchange says a lot about a dictator and a country that does not value human life–born, unborn, or female.
Recently released historic documents reveal that in 1973 Henry Kissinger held trade talks with China Chairman Mao Zedong. In the spirit of detente, Mao Zedong made Kissinger an offer that is not to be believed:
“You know,” he said, “China is a very poor country. We don’t have much. What we have in excess is women. So if you want them we can give a few of those to you, some tens of thousands . . . Do you want our Chinese women? We can give you ten million.”
Kissinger’s diplomatic response? “We will have to study it.”
Arrrrgh! I think I’d have climbed over the table to throttle the man. Good thing I’m not a diplomat.
Ten million women . . . can you imagine?
