China's rights record not worst

Patrick Corrigan's anti-Chinese rant dismayed me at a time when Chinese investment in our moribund economy is so important.

More people are executed in Texas per capita than in China.

I don't see any protest about that.

I dont see any letters from Patrick Corrigan about the beheading of Alawites in rebel-held parts of Syria and the expulsion of 200,000 Catholic Arabs or the execution of Muslims in Afghanistan and Yemen by drones guided from the safety of a bunker in Virginia.

I have visited China twice and found there a burgeoning economy and a prosperous and harmonious society.
