US partisan wrangling leaves public interest unattended

Washington underestimates China's contribution to WTO

Seeing Beijing is about to surpass Washington economically, the US seems to be utterly discomfited. It does not care if China has taken over 1 billion people out of extreme poverty, or how much it has contributed to the globe. The US' own interests must come first. Looking for excuses to break the China-WTO contract is, thus, not surprising. Nevertheless, disputes in trade can be resolved through the WTO, instead of a trade war.

Bellicose US public opinion may lead to war in peninsula

Global responsibilities need to be shared by all nations

The end of US hegemony may eventually result in disorder, and this depends on whether the West can treat a multipolar world rightly and squarely face China's rising international status and growing leadership in global affairs. No country will be capable of independently leading the world. The international community should find an order where all states jointly bear responsibilities. This is an arduous process, in which China is very willing to invest efforts.
