Why Bangalore and not Beijing

A lot of hulala over Obama's speech.
Why did he have to refer to Bangalore and Buffalo, and not maybe Beijing and Buffalo?

After all, it is not only the software that is being outsourced. Step into any major retail store in US and you will find why manufacturing has died down in the country. Everything (with a capital E) is made in China.

And then why blame Bangalore?

Simple reason.

If he had mentioned Beijing instead of Bangalore, the next day, Hu Jintao would wiggle his nose, and maybe throw a reference to a trillion in gold deposits, and wonder how safe they are.
And down comes the Dow (-Jones index.)

Well, there you go! :)
