US mistakes sit on wrong side of history

Pride has always been a significant US enemy. A country must learn how to be modest and restrained. Moving in the same direction is the best choice when minimizing risks for both sides. Confrontation should not be a 21st-century game. It is a trap that China and the US should work together to avoid.

Religious freedom card of US ridiculous

It is increasingly difficult for the US to disturb Chinese society. Xinjiang and Tibet have restored order long ago with the constant economic and social accomplishments. A new harmony has been shaped between religious freedom and social order.

The perilous plight of illegal immigrants in US

When your case is denied, and you exhaust opportunities for appeal, you get a deportation order. Or you could get one simply by missing a court date, even if it's because the postman fed your appearance notice to a stray dog on the street. A deportation order, therefore, is often not a reference to right and wrong but a testament to the randomness of fate.

By learning from China, Vietnam has taken fewer detours

In sum, after years of efforts, the Vietnamese economy has entered a new phase. However, the aftermath could be more daunting. Vietnam's economy has some structural problems which could aggravate if the country enters a new era. It remains to be seen whether Hanoi would be able to overcome them.

Western pride and prejudice must stop

It is not that Chinese diplomats were trying out "wolf warrior" rhetoric. They were just telling the truth and accurately revealing Western politicians' lies. China will not stay silent in the face of groundless accusations from the US and the West.
