    • Foreign Policy in Focus

    After the 9/11 attacks and the rash of anthrax mailings, renewed attention is being paid to the risks posed by weapons of mass destruction (WMD) falling into the hands of additional states and nonstate actors.

By carefully stripping away the absurd fictions of the "one-China" policy, President Li is actually doing all concerned a big favor.
