Federal, state dysfunction hampers US virus fight


Since the viral outbreak of COVID-19 in the US, there have been a number of serious clashes between the federal and state governments.

Western political system gets a radical health check

There has been nothing like the current crisis for 100 years, so any President might struggle to get a grip on such an unprecedented challenge. But with Trump in charge, the problems of lack of preparedness, years of inadequate health funding, and a blithe disregard for the most disadvantaged members of society, are compounded by a leader who is clearly out of his depth.

'Trump pandemic' grips the US, no escaping accountability this time

US needs to understand cooperation, not xenophobia, is the right way forward

It's high time for Westerners to cease the blame game. In the era of globalization, no country can survive all on its own. Chinese people have made great efforts and substantial contribution to curb the spread of the COVID-19. They should not be bullied and stigmatized.

When we need global cooperation to fight COVID-19, US practices 'America First'

NATO should take care of the real security concerns of its European member states, rather than simply showcase its military muscle. That would reveal positive reasons for its existence, perhaps stop it from inching closer to a “brain death.”

Tokyo Olympics on track but can't afford a false start

It will certainly be good news if Tokyo Olympics will be on schedule. But if it cannot go ahead in perfect condition, it might be better to delay for one year or so, when people's fully restored consumption desire will boost success of the Games. The quadrennial Olympic Games represent the hopes and dreams of countless athletes. That can certainly be said for the next host country too.

Germans hear little of China's aid to Europe

The world must pool its scientific, production and logistics resources to overcome the worst pandemic in 100 years. It's no time for shortsighted partisan maneuvering.
