PLA drills in Taiwan Straits send clear warning


Taiwan independence forces' attempt to cozy up to the US and their secessionist activities will only result in strong opposition from the mainland. The Tsai administration should recognize the 1992 Consensus and negotiate with the mainland. US endeavors to play the Taiwan card will only complicate China-US relations and the situation across the Taiwan Straits.

China should fight the trade war as it did the Korean War

A strategic resolution is being established in China, which is to fight the Trump administration's trade aggression in the same way the country fought US troops during the Korean War (1950-53). The Korean War caused China much losses but it forced the US to sign on an armistice, damaging Washington's strategic arrogance and winning many years of strategic respect for Beijing. We should fight today's trade war with the same strategic spirit that fears no sacrifice or loss, and force the US to burn the very stick that it wields at China.

Student suicide raises questions for wider society

Fawning on tutors by doing their household chores is never a right thing to do and should never be encouraged. Students share an equal status with teachers in the 21st century. A two-way evaluation system can be implemented in Chinese universities to restrict teachers. Disobedience to Wang-like tutors may sometimes ruin the future of powerless students. Therefore students must be given some say in the evaluation of teachers so as to deter them from unruly behavior.

Trade counterstrikes give US painful lessons to learn

If this trade war comes to pass, it will be an evenly matched total war between China and the US economies, and not some small scuffle. It would be delusional for the US to think it will be victorious at the end of this trade war. China comes up with the conclusion in confidence, and will not shy away from letting Washington know in this situation.
