Ludicrous to tout Hong Kong rabble rousers for a Nobel Peace Prize

Wong and the others have in fact become tools for anti-China forces in the West. Their views are too narrow. They cannot see the bigger trend of history and they are unable to rein in their childishness and selfishness.

Movie studios may be attacked for allegedly bending to Chinese censorship and carrying out Beijing's propaganda as the Chinese market and funding becomes more important. Maybe they do. But is it so different from what Hollywood has done on behalf of the US in the past?

Suspicion over China's Polar Silk Road rooted in misunderstanding

China needs to expand Arctic activities, has rights to participate in Arctic affairs and is capable of promoting exploitation of resources in the region. What's more, international society needs China's wisdom and power to deal with the threats and challenges in the region.
