While Congress and the White House have paid particular attention to information security and are even concerned about being led by the nose by “false information” from Moscow and Beijing, how should Beijing not keep alert about rabid ideological organs like The New York Times?

Lei Yang’s case must be judged only by law

With Lei's case coming to an end, some extreme speculations have now been proved to be a far cry from the facts. Similar situations have occurred repeatedly in other events which stirred public opinion.

China cannot hesitate on nuclear buildup

China's nuclear weapons must be "sufficient" to deter the US when it flexes its military muscle, as well as to convince the US that the PLA will strike back without hesitation in face of military provocation. The US and its allies need to believe that whichever of their Asian-Pacific military bases are used for launching attacks on China, it will meet destructive retaliation.

Navigation freedom can't threaten China's national security

A peculiar scene often plays out in the South China Sea: Chinese fishermen cut away cables of the US military reconnaissance system and grabbed the sonar. If we see sonar and underwater gliders deployed by foreign ships in the South China Sea in the future, we would rather mistakenly capture a thousand than miss a single one.

US agent status is a soft spot for Japan

Despite its regional influence, Japan has a “soft spot” that cannot be fixed in the short term. Japan is eager to increase its diplomatic weight but its status as a US ally makes it difficult for it to gain some countries’ trust.
