Stupid Question, Obvious Answer

If you died today, who would take care of your family?

Because they Have to?

Dear Kim Ghattas, there across the English Channel, or the bigger pond:

this is what you wrote in an article about U.S.-Chinese relations today:

China’s reactions so far have been mostly part of its usual repertoire of diplomatic outbursts – expected knee-jerk reactions to key issues that are sensitive to China and against which it must protest.

I agree that China’s reactions so far have been mostly what you say, but issues sensitive to China and against which they must protest?

Aren’t you taking your consideration a bit too far? I mean, no foreign-ministry spokesman or -woman in Beijing has yet unveiled that he or she is suffering from Tourette’s Disorder.

Or did I miss the news?

Greetings
JR
