PEN America imposes double standards of free expression in Hollywood


The US, which stresses political correctness more than ever, does not enjoy so-called freedom of speech as much as it claims. While Hollywood blockbusters have be shown in China, such as superhero movies like Captain America, The Avengers and Spider-Man, to name just a few, will US authorities give the green light to films featuring Chinese heroes? The answer is no. So where does their touted freedom of speech lie?

India-Australia closeness draws attention

China-Australia relations have become icy since the COVID-19 outbreak. Based on its dishonorable role in Huawei, Hong Kong, and the South China Sea affairs, Australia needs more substantive “Quad.” This is in line with Aussie acting as a US vanguard to contain China and its demand to play a bigger role in the Indo-Pacific security affairs in the future.

Pressuring China with US-India naval drills is pure vanity

Some Indians, like foxes that want to use a tiger's might to their own advantage, as the saying goes, are seeking support from the US. Such efforts will be in vain.

Pompeo's S.China Sea declaration risks pushing China-US ties into abyss

Pompeo's statement shows that the US' policy in the South China Sea has changed from military pressure into a comprehensive suppression combining military action and hyping public opinion. This is an escalation of the US' tactical pressure on China, and especially on the South China Sea issue.

China, Europe can bridge ideological differences: Global Times editorial

The US has used ideological differences as its finest tool to mobilize European countries to join its anti-China camp. Such a tool is widely used within the West and is quite alluring to ordinary Europeans. This makes easing ideological differences with Europe even more important for China.

Esper escalates military tensions against China with war of words

We don't need to compare the exact number of carriers the US and China have now. Instead, we are talking about asymmetric warfare in which we can use a wide range of anti-aircraft carrier weapons. These include DF-21D and DF-26, both of which are regarded as “aircraft carrier killer” missiles.

China's political and social growth key to foil US attacks

China is not the Soviet Union. The US will never manage to make China into the second Soviet Union so that it can contain China with a Cold War-style campaign. China is more open and has more potential than the Soviet Union ever did. As long as we do our job well and stay strong, open up further and become more prosperous, the US will never be able to break us. It will instead harm itself with its extreme policies. It will be the US that cannot hang on to the end.

US troop pullout trick aims to pile pressure on S.Korea

This is the “America First” policy in the US' overseas strategy. If the US had no interests overseas, then there would not be a need for it to spend a single dollar outside its borders. It could instead focus completely on defending its own territory.
