Japan's Deputy Minister Weighs In on China/WHO Controversy: "China is Asshoe"

He didn't actually say that, exactly, but that's the gist of it. See below the fold.

China has meanwhile opened its "wet markets," where living animals, many exotic, are sold in open stalls and kept close to each other, making possible the interspecies jump that sets exotic new plagues loose on humanity.

Cages full of cats and dogs waiting for slaughter and the unsanitary preparation of animals is again reportedly a common sight in Chinese food markets, often called wet-markets, according to in-country correspondents with the Daily Mail.

Lindsey Graham demands China shut down its "disgusting" wet markets, or else face trade restrictions.

Sen. Lindsey Graham threatened that the US-China trade relationship will "change" if Beijing fails to shut down wet markets that sell wild, and at times live, animals that could transmit viruses to humans once eaten.

Speaking during an interview on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said he would be writing a letter to the Chinese ambassador to tell him, "If you donít shut those wet markets down, our trading relationship is going to change."

Wet markets are an outdoor series of stalls selling meat, fish, produce and other perishable goods that are popular throughout Asia and Africa. Living and dead animals being sold at these markets include pigs, oxen, ducks, chickens, bats, dogs, monkeys and cats.

"What can China do to help the world? Shut those markets down," Graham added when talking to the network.
