Confucius Institute label shows US a petty superpower: Global Times editorial

The US is the most petty-minded of all big powers. Many Western countries have Confucius Institutes, but only the US, the world's sole superpower, feels threatened. Where is the US' confidence? Where is its cultural tolerance?

PLA drills a warning to 'Taiwan secession' forces: Global Times editorial

The drills of the Eastern Theater Command show that the PLA is capable of launching a general offensive from all directions in the Taiwan Straits, and seize the island in hours. DPP authorities should use their final rationality. They should know that being a piece in the US chessboard could lead to checkmate. The day may come suddenly when they get swellheaded.

US election degenerates to being tough on China: Global Times editorial

Whoever takes office, Washington's strategic malice toward Beijing won't decline. China must depend on itself to defend its own interests, rather than hope that Washington will change its mind.

China's countermeasures against US sanctions show maturity: Global Times editorial

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian announced sanctions on 11 US lawmakers and heads of nongovernmental organizations on Monday afternoon. The move is obviously a reciprocal retaliation against US sanctions announced Friday on senior Hong Kong officials including Carrie Lam, and central government officials related to Hong Kong, 11 of them in total. Beijing is once again sending a clear message to Washington that China will not compromise in the face of diplomatic crackdown from the US.

US fights harder against China than coronavirus: Global Times editorial

China should leave some of the US' provocations be, while launching countermeasures against others. In the next few months, China should make the world, especially the Americans, feel the absurdity of playing the China card in election campaigns which is turning US national interests into partisan gains.

TikTok ban is atrocity against net freedom: Global Times editorial

The Trump administration has displayed its ugly face that prevents any non-US company to break the US technological hegemony. The so-called “national security” is merely a shameless excuse used to destroy China's most successful globalized internet company.

'Clean network' exposes Pompeo's madness: Global Times editorial

The Chinese people must not be frightened by the Trump administration's aggressive anti-China posture, nor should they be misled by it. As long as China adheres to further opening-up, it won't get distracted or dance to the tune of the US, and it will be pretty difficult for Washington to carry out its Clean Network program.

Washington robs TikTok by treading upon rules: Global Times editorial

In a world which lacks rules, the cost of interaction between countries will increase, and the subtle shift from a win-win result to a lose-lose one will be inevitable. At a time when people are experiencing an unprecedented pandemic, it will be tragic to lose rules.

Banning TikTok reflects Washington's cowardice: Global Times editorial

By banning Huawei, the US would lag behind in 5G technology. By banning TikTok, the US would harm its own internet diversity and its belief in freedom and democracy. When similar things happen time and again, the US will take steps closer to its decline.

TikTok ban demonstrates barbaric act of rogue US: Global Times editorial

In the most barbaric way, the US is trying to solidify a high-tech world order in which it is the absolute center. Whether it ends up "killing" TikTok or forcibly taking the child out of Bytedance's arms, it is one of the ugliest scenes of the 21st century in the high-tech competition.

US cannot have real economic recovery as long as pandemic continues: Global Times editorial

No doubt the Trump administration is going down a wrong path. If the pandemic continues, the team may eventually not get what it wishes. Make adjustment earlier, join hands with China, and the global fight against the COVID-19 will take a new look immediately. This will be good for everyone, and a plus to the Trump administration.

China, Japan should avoid new animosity: Global Times editorial

The alliance did not accept typical Western countries like Germany, France and Italy. Why is it interested in including Japan? Could it be anything other than a huge strategic plot?

Humor, unity seen in Chinese public's response to US consulate closure: Global Times editorial

When will China-US relations hit the bottom? It probably doesn't depend on us. But what we can be sure of is that every US offensive will be repelled.
