The paper asserts that the United States only refuses to impose strict economic sanctions on China because economic interests prevail over democratic principles. The paper relates that the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre forced the then President Bush to impose economic sanctions on China, but these sanctions were later reduced and have little impact anymore. The paper argues that despite the economic interests involved, the US must still assure that the Chinese government change its policy and improve its human rights practices.
