China to U.S.: Look! Shiny object!

Funny but all-to-true aside from Steve Clemons on how China benefits from America’s rather ADHD attention span. From a Center for Strategic and International Studies discussion on the aftermath of the Japanese elections.

Steve Clemons:

A few years ago, I was in Beijing and visited the director of policy planning at China’s ministry of foreign affairs and I said, what are you working on? And he says, how to keep you Americans distracted in small Middle Eastern countries. (Laughter.)

Meanwhile, the Chinese are building the biggest high-speed rail network in the world.
