Senator Feinstein's request for apology absurd

We hope Senator Feinstein will reflect on her comments. Why does she insist her understanding of the Dalai Lama is correct and why is she so sensitive about criticism from the Chinese media? This does not look like an open mind. Those rigid concepts are too rusty.

Sino-US dialogue must address mutual concern

Noticeably, such a US-centered perspective, which is built on the belief that the US could absolutely dominate China-US relations and wantonly manipulate issues concerning China's core interests, is arrogant and distorted.

US' accusation of China using trade as weapon is too hypocritical

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told lawmakers Wednesday that the US cannot allow China to use trade as a weapon. According to Washington Examiner, Tillerson said, "We cannot allow them to weaponize trade. And they are doing that today, and our message to them is, 'you will not buy your way out of these other difficult issues, like North Korea, the South China Sea, with your trade'."

Western media shouldn't speculate when reporting on China

No matter what the reason is behind Wu's stepping aside, the incident won't have a ripple effect as Western media has speculated. These media outlets need to understand that Chinese society is not built around a few entrepreneurs.

Law will not bow to dirty tricks of Guo Wengui

This is an era of globalization. Precisely, it is a world in which the criminals have nowhere to hide, a world which will not tolerate their sins. Well-educated Guo Wengui should be aware of that. Maybe he has foreseen these and is pessimistic about the future. Whether it is due to his fear or desperation, his ridiculous confrontation with the law will only make him pay a higher legal cost. No matter how rich he is, he cannot escape this logic.

China will never bow to terrorism

The violent acts carried out by terrorist groups should be strongly condemned, and indeed they will be. Their continued acts of murder and execution will never lead to anything good. Most of all, the Chinese government and its society will not bow to terrorism under any circumstances.
