As China hysteria reaches fever pitch, let's not pretend morality is a good basis of foreign policy

Bob Dylan famously wrote: "Something is happening here, but you don't know what it is, do you Mr Jones?"

I've felt like I've been living in that song this past week as China hysteria has reached fever pitch. To listen to some people, you'd think our sovereignty is at risk because of an offensive tweet from a Chinese official. "China must be stopped before it's too late!" I have heard that this week, too. "We need to defend our values!"

 Are they being stolen from us?
