Helle Dale in the Washington Times emphasizes the importance of keeping the European Union’s trade embargo on China in place.

Will this, then, be the outcome of President Bush’s European charm offensive — we go along with the Europeans and take a softer line on Hezbollah and Iran, while the Europeans ignore our views on China and lift the embargo?
