The money shot:
The U.S. gave $65 million in 2008, mainly for targeted programs promoting safe nuclear energy, health, human rights and disaster relief. The reason Washington gives so little is because it still maintains the sanctions imposed following the 1989 military crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square, said Drew Thompson, a China expert at the Nixon Center in Washington, D.C



"so little"??????????:redface:


eta-Oh wait,my bad-I reread it and it seems someone named "Washington" gave them 65 million (I thought it was tax money-silly me).
