China Cracking Down on Foreigners?

This is why they must thread very carefully when dealing with the issue of corruption. They must be seen to do something about Bo Xi Lai but cannot delve too deep without exposing their own corruption. The Chinese way is to be corrupt. Always was, probably always will be.

It is much easier to look outside for problems rather than inside.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

I've been travelling in China since March. Haven't noticed even a sniff of anti-foreigner sentiment. People still smile, or scowl, as their wont. Shopkeepers are polite and friendly, or rude and indifferent, people on the street still want to say "hellooooo" and taxi drivers still want to run me down.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”
