Cool China's Spare Men

A larger standing army, an amplified missile and naval capability....and BHO cuts defense spending while American women get abortions, about 50 million of them, for children of either gender.

"Selective abortion in favour of males has left China with 32 million more boys than girls, creating an imbalance that will remain for decades, warned a paper published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on Friday.

"In the paper, Zhejiang University professors Wei Xing Zhu and Li Lu and Therese Hesketh of the University College London found that in 2005 alone, China had more than 1.1 million excess male births."
