  • China's premier Wen Jiabao is visiting Iceland in a tour that will focus on Chinese investment in a country eager for funds from the chinese superpower.

    We Icelanders like to think of ourselves as freedom loving and care a lot for our democracy.

    Iceland was once a danish colony and we had to fight for our right as a free state and surely we should care for the rights of other oppressed countries.

    Instead of using the opertunity to protest, the Icelandic government and President are rolling out the red carpet.

    How quickly we forget and how easily we are blinded by the prospect of some money being thrown our way.
