One totalitarian recognizes another?


Regarding Julian Assange's felony plea (for freedom) deal with the United States, China said that:



In order to cover up its crimes, laws can become tools of the US government.


The chilling effect it hopes to achieve on "whistleblowers" not only brings personal harm to Assange but also deepens the world's profound doubts about the values that the US boasts.


A years-long international saga involving Assange may be over, but this history of injustice will always be remembered. Its impact will continue to resonate in the public and media spheres, reminding people of the US' trampling of freedom and human rights.
