Emasculated US learns to deal with new status by changing policy


With its leadership eroded, America has started changing the nature of its policy. It tries to make up its diminished influence through policy adjustments, particularly bullying and intimidation. This may work in the short term. To avoid direct strategic confrontation with the US, other countries tend to make certain concessions to it. But in the long run, it will hurt the US' own interest. America's relations with other countries, including China, will eventually return to the conventional logic of international relations.

Notre Dame fire provokes deep thoughts

That the Notre Dame fire has immediately become a global focus reflects the unprecedented high level of globalization. But it has been mixed with much regret. In any case, the integration of human emotions is a general trend. More and more common challenges will continuously push us into a community of shared interests and emotions.

Violence in soccer is hurting China's competitive potential

Large investments and policies have been put into soccer in China. The money should be used to improve players' skills as well as cultivate sportsmanship and make players more educated, particularly young players. China's soccer team cannot fight to be one of the world's elite. The antidote lies in players' insistence on sportsmanship and determination to improve.

Israel vote result hardens right-wing parties

At the same time, the possibility of conflicts with Iran, Syria as well as Lebanon has also risen sharply. In addition, due to America's bias on regional issues, Netanyahu's re-election will cast more shadow over the already volatile situation in the Middle East.

US using Taiwan question as ruse to interfere in China's internal affairs

Therefore, the US needs to exercise prudence on Taiwan and abide by the one-China principle based on the three joint communiqués between China and the US. Any US provocative move in the Taiwan Straits is detrimental to the interests of all parties. We hope to form a mutually beneficial China-US relationship, which needs efforts by both sides.

EU may take cue from US-China trade talks

China is the largest manufacturing economy, whose products have been exported to the rest of world; while it is also a huge market, attracting global companies' attention. The EU is not only an affluent economy but also a major manufacturing base in the world. China and the EU can cooperate in manufacturing as their huge markets are attractive to each other. Hence, there is huge potential for China and the EU to cooperate.

US military ties could be a trap for India

Two events in 2017, the China-India border standoff and the announcement of the largest ever Malabar series of US-India-Japan trilateral naval exercises in the Bay of Bengal, continue to serve as a reminder of the strategic trap that India could find itself in the near and distant future.

US petty in barring Chinese scholars' visit

No matter how petty-minded the US becomes, we sincerely hope the Chinese government will keep opening-up. Being open will bring more strategic gains than being suspicious.

Australia to pay for 5G restrictions on Huawei

China's warning at the WTO shows that Beijing will not shut its eyes to violations of multilateral trade principles. China should shoulder the responsibility of maintaining international rules, as well as urge the WTO to oppose a technological trade war through legitimate WTO complaints. Thus, China needs to build its professional groups to fight such trade discrimination under the current rules and procedures. Australia is bound to pay the price for its unwise decisions.

Being China's neighbor and US ally, Thailand needs to strike a balance between the two

Furthermore, Thailand lacks research and technical personnel. Labor costs in the Southeast Asian nation are higher than in neighboring countries, which could also affect Chinese investment in Thailand.
