US wants to use HK turmoil to weaken China

The escalation of violence over the past few months has upset many ordinary Hongkongers and the public will voice louder opposition to violence. At the same time, police would step up measures to curb violence. So far, a number of rioters have been arrested. Therefore, it's likely that violence would gradually reduce. But protests may continue for a while because protesters have not obtained what they want – such as the right to universal suffrage.

Basketball displays basic rule of globalization

Likewise, the US should not blame China for weakening the US strength. In basketball, for example, Washington should improve its own competitiveness. Only in this way can US basketball and the world's basketball develop better. The philosophy of the development of basketball is also applicable to other fields.

Why bother with next G7 summit? Just call it off

It was reported that Trump suggested hosting 2020's G7 summit at his resort in Florida, but soon was mocked as trying to profit from the intergovernmental meeting. From our perspective, there is no need for the leaders to bother with the next gathering's location; simply calling it off might be a good option. After all, except for attracting visitors to the host cities, the G7 summit has little to be praiseworthy.

Why are the Chinese brushing aside Trump's tweets?

Trump has turned Twitter into a stage for his political show, where he says things to gain votes for reelection. He repeats what he has done for the US – to provide Americans welfare, and to “make America great again.” But he is actually damaging the interests of his own country and people.

Social media shouldn't condone cyber violence against China

China is definitely not the nation some portray on social media. How many of them have been to China? How much do they know about China and things happening in this country?

Boycotting Mulan ideologically driven by China haters

The criticism is not simply targeted at a film. It is a malicious personal attack bordering on racism. This is cyber violence which seriously violates the basic principles of Twitter and Facebook. The two platforms should have suspended these ideological paranoids' accounts.

US to suffer from tech sanctions on China

By imposing sanctions on Chinese enterprises, the US will only isolate itself and lag behind others. Since China's technology has already become indispensable in the world, other countries will make their own right choice.

Rioters call their nemesis by assaulting Global Times reporter

In no case should violence be tolerated anywhere in the world. This is the bottom line of a modern civilized society. As Hong Kong rioters have vented their rage at and attacked innocents, no excuse can exonerate them of the blame for violent crimes. Any attempt, especially by some biased Westerners, to defend them is nothing short of being an accomplice in the violence.

Hong Kong must make a choice: stability or turmoil?

Hong Kong will have to choose. If it provides opportunities for terrorism, Hong Kong will be engulfed in turmoil and most Hongkongers will lose their stable life. But if Hong Kong chooses stability, then it should not give any chance for terrorism and should firmly crack down on terrorist activities. A middle course does not exist.

Believing their ideologies and civilizations were superior, the British colonists slaughtered indigenous Australians. They even thought the massacre removed the inferior people. Such an ideology of Western superiority was similar to that of Adolf Hitler.
