Honest AIIB

America’s opposition to  China’s creation of an Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is not only a “self-defeating farce” but also an outright hypocrisy.

The primary function of this bank is to finance infrastructure projects in Asia’s developing countries. America has long admonished China to become a “responsible stakeholder” in Asia, and China is attempting to become one with the creation of AIIB.
