Presumably another foreign leader for Kerry

Reuters reports that Qian Qichen, "one of the main architects of China's foreign policy" wrote a scathing article in the China Daily against President George W. Bush and his foreign policy. Reuters called the "searing article" as "close to a position on the U.S. presidential election as China has come" even though it did not mean Senator John Kerry. In particuarly undiplomatic language, Qian wrote, "The current U.S. predicament in Iraq serves as another example that when a country's superiority psychology inflates beyond its real capability, a lot of trouble can be caused." Now I'm no diplomat but I don't think that "superiority pyschology" is usually a friendly term in international discourse.
