All sides need to heed Kissinger's warning: Global Times editorial

We should do our own thing seriously and strengthen our belief in peaceful development. We should not pursue the idea of teaching the US a good lesson. But there is also no need for us to be afraid of any provocation or pressure. China is such a powerful country. Is there anything we should be afraid of? China's trouble will also be the trouble of its challengers. We are willing to make sincere efforts to avoid troubles together. There is also another option for China, that is, to let nature take its course.

Trump cannot use China as a badge of honor before leaving: Global Times editorial

The US is a real tiger on the global stage, but when it comes close to China's coastal waters and touches China's core interests, it becomes a paper tiger. With just over two months left for the Trump administration, any attempt to flex its muscle or flaunt will receive embarrassment and humiliation. China is not a badge of honor for the US political elite to daub.

Blacklisting Taiwan secessionists shows historical justice: Global Times editorial

History will show that the Taiwan secessionist forces will be severely punished. They will eventually face the law. China will never allow its island of Taiwan to be separated from the country. Those extremists who commit crimes to their country and people will pay the price, sooner or later.

RCEP proves that multilateralism is the right path for the world: Global Times editorial

There is no need to overestimate the significance of the RCEP. But it will undoubtedly enhance Chinese people's confidence by showing us that multilateralism is still full of vitality and there is still broad room for us to participate in it.

China can deal with final 'crazy' Trump moves: Global Times editorial

The Chinese people don't want to be involved in trouble after the US election. But we must make the Trump administration know that we had not hesitated to fight back their provocations during the peak of their rule, nor will we be reluctant to strike back when necessary in the coming days. Now may be their craziest time, but we know it's also their most vulnerable time. They lack mobilization abilities to promote extreme confrontation with China.

No way for Western forces to dominate HK affairs: Global Times editorial

In the final analysis, the ultimate justification of Hong Kong affairs will always be in China's hand. There is only a certain while for Hong Kong opposition to collude with outside forces, and whoever stirs up the trouble will pay equally heavy price. Surely, the narratives that play up values first might be sensational, but common sense and conventional wisdom are the most powerful. Just keep in mind that the biggest reality is that Hong Kong belongs to China, and don't grapple with it. It is both a political rationale and a useful secular philosophy.

Pompeo's last-ditch efforts to bash China: Global Times editorial

If Pompeo lives longer than the average American, he will see the critical point in the next two decades when the US will no longer be predominantly white, and all kinds of restructuring that this change will bring. That is the real political challenge in the US. He should just mind the US' own business and deal with the political balance in the great change of the country. Confronting China will not help the US in transition.

Resignation of HK opposition lawmakers pitiful, ridiculous:Global Times editorial

The Hong Kong opposition must know that Hong Kong is not a country, but only a special administrative region under the rule of China. The Hong Kong opposition can only engage in activities and play a role in Hong Kong internal affairs under the Basic Law. It's a dead end to oppose the central government and wrestle with the country by colluding with external forces. The Hong Kong opposition have reached the crossroads. They must choose.

SCO needs member states' joint efforts to get stronger: Global Times editorial

SCO members are all emerging markets. It's in the best interest of all countries to realize further development. These countries are facing a similar development environment, difficulties and problems. They share a lot in common in these aspects and could understand each other easily. The SCO is a community. All members should make collective efforts to contribute to the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.

DPP's manipulation of WHA fails again: Global Times editorial

The political manipulation of the DPP to join WHO has hit another ignominious failure. Taiwan will have no so-called international space if it rejects the 1992 Consensus. Any political manipulation by DPP authorities will be futile.

COVID-19, not China, is the biggest rival of the US: Global Times editorial

China has never been a main problem of the US. And it can be sure that the so-called “China threat” is much weaker than the “US threat” many Chinese people are sensing. It is wrong for the US to make policies based on “China threat.” If the US knows that is wrong and still does so, that would be more horrible. No matter which election year, American voters don't encourage such wrongdoing. It is hoped that the two parties in the US can thoroughly reflect on and clarify this issue.

Drop illusions over China-US relations, but don't give up efforts: Global Times editorial

Beijing should undertake to communicate with the Biden team as thoroughly as it can, making greater efforts to recover China-US relations to a state of great predictability.

Election pushes US divide past tipping point: Global Times editorial

Maintaining social unity has become an increasingly arduous and sensitive task. Obviously, the US needs political reforms more than many other countries to enhance its ability to promote unity.

US pollsters should fix distorted surveys: Global Times editorial

It is hoped US public opinion institutions can be more pragmatic, restrain their arrogance and do some self-examination according to professionalism and ethics of the industry. This is respect they are supposed to have toward morality and responsibility.

2020 CIIE sends a clear, strong signal to world: Global Times editorial

US election uncertainty beyond technicalities: Global Times editorial

The election mechanism of the US has been riddled with loopholes, filled with, implicitly or explicitly, individual or collective interests of political parties and elites. This is the tragedy and loss of US society, but is not limited to it.

US election stalls global COVID-19 fight: Global Times editorial

Over 46 million people have been infected, with more than 1.2 million deaths. This has become a worldwide humanitarian crisis. To end it, the world should at least have an objective knowledge of it and unite against it. But the world has failed in both aspects due to the US.

China must forge own path however US election goes: Global Times editorial

All in all, US elections are not that important to China. The Chinese people should not count that the US accidentally or suddenly changes its mind. The US attitude toward China should have a bottom line, and the bottom line must be shaped by the Chinese themselves.
