First up, Congress considers a new bill that would make some soldiers eligible1 for the Purple Heart. Representative John Carter introduced the new legislation yesterday. The Fort Hood2 army post is located in his home district in Texas. This bill is focused on the victims of the recent shooting there. The Purple Heart first created in 1782 is given to any US service member who is wounded and killed while serving in action against an enemy or in a terrorist attack. Representative Carter says the Fort Hood victims deserved the Purple Heart because he considers the shooting to be an enemy attack.

China has a big role in the international scene. The country is a major part of the talks about North Korea's controversial nuclear program. And it holds one of the five permanent seats in the UN Security Council. Ed Henry feels the sense on what happened when President Obama met with Chinese President Hu Jintao yesterday.

 

In Beijing’s bitter cold, President Obama was all about showcasing a new warmth with China, as he toured the historic Forbidden City and its Hall of Supreme3 Harmony.

“…Beautiful and what a magnificent place to visit.”

By the end of this week, Mr. Obama will have visited 20 nations,  the most in the first year of any American president. Though, he told Chinese president Hu Jintao in the ornate Great Hall of the People, their relationship may be most pivotal of all.

"In this young century, the jobs we do, the prosperity we build, the environment we protect, the security that we seek, all these things are shared."

It was not however all sweetness and light. While  Mr. Obama avoided a meeting with Dalai Lama in Washington last month to not ruffle4 feathers before this visit, Here in Beijing, he gently but publicly pushed the Chinese to cool tensions with the Tibetan spiritual leader.

“While we recognize that Tibet is part of the  People’s Republic of China, the United States supports the early resumption of dialog between the Chinese government and representatives of the Dalai Lama to resolve any concerns and differences that the two sides may have.

And while they spoke5 of broad economic cooperation, Hu slapped the US for recently hitting Chinese tires and steel with new levies6.

“Our two countries need to oppose and reject protectionism in all its manifestations7 in an even stronger stand."

But the world's two biggest emitters of greenhouse gases vowed8 to work together to get concrete action on climate change at a summit next month in Copenhagen.
