WASHINGTON --President Bush's administration is building a new Great Wall: one between the United States and China. "Hosing down China with acid," was how a China expert summed up the initial approach. Mr. Bush's father, a former U.S. envoy to Beijing, is often referred to in China as "lao pangyo" (old friend).
