  • Abbott's real message to Taiwan: fight for yourself and do not expect substantial protection from the US and its allies

    Tony Abbott actually asked Taiwan to “stand up and die” for Western interests and to act as cannon fodder on a war that the island is destined to lose in order to win praise from the West.

  • At 110th anniversary of 1911 Revolution, Taiwan authorities show betrayal

    A grand commemorative meeting marking the 110th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution is held on Saturday in Beijing. The historical mission of the revolution was to overthrow the monarchy, establish a republic and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. And the reunification of the country is undoubtedly an indispensable part of the great rejuvenation.

  • Questioning Chinese soldiers' sacrifice in Korean War is blasphemous toward history, will only be spurned by public

    War-epic film The Battle at Lake Changjin has aroused more public attention on the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea and the Lake Changjin battle. A few Chinese people promoted the US perspective, however, using so-called "objectivity" to counter the mainstream memory and values of Chinese society about the war. They attempted to mislead views about a Chinese company in which soldiers were frozen into "ice sculptures." Such a practice is nothing but a kind of spiritual betrayal, and it is really disgusting.

  • Beijing's rationing electricity not an approach for the whole of China to emulate

    Beijing has proposed to suspend the city's light show and shortened the time of the city's landscape lighting at night. I believe it makes sense for Beijing to launch this initiative now, whether this is because of Beijing's power supply shortage or a response to the power shortages in Northeast China and other places.

  • Anti-China RSF has more actors than audience in its play against China

    The French-based organization Reporters Without Borders (RSF) launched its Journalism Trust Initiative (JTI) transparency tool designed to "identify and reward trustworthy news sources" to combat false information. This online program requires the media to first conduct a self-assessment, which involves an internal check of conformity with the "JTI Standard." Next, the results may be "voluntarily disclosed to the public." The final stage of the process is an external evaluation by a third-party to certify a media as "trustworthy news sources." The supporters of JTI are basically Western news and social organizations, including major US internet companies and the "Association of Taiwan Journalists." Chinese and Russian news organizations are not involved.

"America Attacked" was the headline on the front page of a major American newspaper. An angry US launched the war in Afghanistan within a month and the war in Iraq a year and a half later. Before the Afghanistan War, the American public discussed the idea of using nuclear weapons in retaliation.

  • What drives China-US game: Washington believes being poor is Chinese people's fate

    The truth is, even if China's GDP surpasses that of the US one day, our per capita wealth will be far less than that of the US, Europe and the entire Western world. But even so, Washington will not allow it. They believe that being poor is Chinese people's collective fate. The poverty in China is an indispensable prerequisite for the security of the US and the world.

  • Western-style press freedom proves to be increasingly decaying

    Today is the World Press Freedom Day. Regrettably, press freedom is entirely defined under the Western political system framework, neglecting the social reality of many developing countries. This has led to significant ideological divergence between developing countries and the West, spearheaded by the US. And, the difference is exacerbated by the West's geopolitical attacks on others. As a result, the political conditions that could help the two sides to bridge their difference have lost ground, with ideological conflicts increasingly being intensified.

  • Bond formed through China's support for India's anti-epidemic fight overrides irrational public sentiments toward another

    China is a big country with a long history of civilization. Our national and international outlook has been tempered by thousands of years of experience. We should not be influenced by the logic of power which has been prevailing in the US and the West. When stepping up the construction of hard power, we cannot neglect the significance of “convincing people by virtue.” For China, virtue is not hypocrisy. Instead, it is our dignity and strength, which is one of the cornerstones of our international mobilization.

Consumption can hardly be held back during this grand Chinese festival. No wonder the world is so envious. Across the Pacific Ocean, the US has seen more than 100,000 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and at least 3, 000 new deaths in the most recent day.

  • Internet public opinion a valuable resource that should be protected, enriched

    I hope that the room of public opinion can be continuously expanded, the reach of public opinion supervision could be wider to form a stronger deterrent. The internet public opinion has become a valuable resource for the Chinese public to strengthen their participation in social governance. While strengthening management, it is undoubtedly necessary to protect and enrich this resource.

  • Indians can hardly afford an economic conflict with China

    I can't believe why these two countries would put aside cooperation on economic development but to fight each other over border disputes. That obviously does not serve the fundamental interests of the two peoples.

  • Lee Teng-hui will not be remembered fondly in Chinese history

    People flocked to the internet to discuss Lee Teng-hui, former leader of the island of Taiwan, shortly after he died of illness on Thursday evening. Many have criticized him, while others have offered their support, praising his "contributions" to Taiwan democracy. These voices argue that Lee initiated one person, one vote "presidential" elections in Taiwan and was the first popularly elected "president." Western media have also spoken highly of his advocacy of "Taiwan sovereignty" and his encouragement for people in the island saying they are "Taiwanese" rather than Chinese.

  • Current US govt is a de facto tyrannical regime: Global Times editorial

    The Trump administration is a de facto tyrannical regime. Officials opposed to the President were quickly replaced, including many core cabinet members. The interests and will of President Trump and his loyalists are the absolute focus of the US politics at present. If all of this is not a typical modern tyranny, what is it?

  • China's political and social growth key to foil US attacks

    China is not the Soviet Union. The US will never manage to make China into the second Soviet Union so that it can contain China with a Cold War-style campaign. China is more open and has more potential than the Soviet Union ever did. As long as we do our job well and stay strong, open up further and become more prosperous, the US will never be able to break us. It will instead harm itself with its extreme policies. It will be the US that cannot hang on to the end.
