"When you go and essentially corrupt an island nation in the South Pacific with massive infusions of aid no matter how appropriately or inappropriately it will be used, and you strangle nascent democracies in their crib by doing so just so you can get that island nation's vote in the General Assembly, that's pursuing it for a very narrow base," Hayden said.

"If you want to be a great power, you've got be thinking more broadly, you cannot be acting just on those kind of narrow considerations," he said.

Is it just me, or does anyone else here smell the rotting stench of IRONY in these statements. China getting involved and skewing other nations electoral processes and governmental processes? Do these people think the entire world is completely unaware of what THEY'VE been up to?

The States have become the ultimate Pot / Kettle embarrassment. Do as we say, not as we do. Nobody's listening to these double standards anymore.

No, it's pot calling pot black. China's government is just as corrupt as ours, if not more so, and that's saying a lot.
