US lawmakers attack China ahead of November elections

China is once again the country the US Congress loves to hate.



Washington: China is once again the country
the US Congress loves to hate.

After a lull last year, US politicians jockeying ahead of
crucial November elections have stepped up attacks on China as
a way to win support from voters worried that the Asian power
is taking American jobs.

China-bashing eased during President Barack Obama`s first
year in office, partly as a nod to the administration`s
attempts to get Chinese help settling nuclear standoffs with
North Korea and Iran and important environmental and economic
initiatives.

Four senators on Monday sent Obama a letter urging him
against giving China special treatment in Iran sanctions
legislation that the House and Senate are now putting
together.

The letter was in response to reports that the
administration, now trying to get China and other UN Security
Council to go along with a new round of international
sanctions against Iran, wanted to exempt the five permanent
members of the Security Council from legislation being crafted
by Congress.
