Alienation

NYTimes:
China is alienating not only the United States but also France, Britain and Germany by resisting tougher United Nations Security Council sanctions on Iran.

A high-level Chinese government meeting.

Chinese Government Official #1: We need to do something or we risk alienating France and Germany.

Rest of the meeting erupts into laughter.

I think that would be an excellent scene in a real James Bond (i.e., not Daniel Craig as Bond) movie.

Personally, I blame Matteo Ricci.

We don't blame Jesuits on this blog. If somebody must be blamed, then it is always a Dominican.

Old adage: "Dominicans for instruction, Jesuits for confession."
