Washington should be sincere in Kim-Trump summit

As the incoming US secretary of state is a hard-liner on North Korea, voices calling for a war against Pyongyang will be on the rise if the summit collapses.

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.
