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.

US travel ban could lead to greater alienation among NATO allies

Whether US military forces abroad will get infected is greatly related to local health conditions. If a large-scale virus outbreak occurred at US military bases worldwide, then it would have a huge impact on US global hegemony and could accelerate alienation between the US and Europe.

Hindsight shows China took appropriate measures

China's fight against COVID-19 realized the most fundamental pursuit of the people - bringing the epidemic under control. At the same time, the government has been responding to people's resentments on various issues with a positive attitude. China's efforts are not as bad as some people have imagined. There were indeed a lot of problems to be addressed and solved. But we must be realistic in our self-estimation but not improperly belittle ourselves due to these problems. This is the proper attitude we should take.

Trump's racist tweet another attempt to deflect blame

The spread of the epidemic in the US will continue for some time. Whether the emergency measures in the US will be effective remains to be seen. While the outbreak has become unavoidable in the US, Trump is deflecting attention by trying to provoke the American people's hatred of China. This will only hinder the US to fight against the epidemic.

Macron deserves praise in virus fight

Europe has been paying attention to the pandemic and is taking action. It has become a battlefield to firmly resist the virus. The Chinese people solidly stand with the European people. China saw achievements dozens of days after Wuhan's city lockdown. The situation changed as we passed each incubation period. We believe Europe, with its rich experience and abundant resources, will eventually defeat the virus and retain its pride.

US hijacks German firm for vaccine monopoly

The pandemic is reshaping global geopolitics. Subtle changes are taking place in the world order dominated by the US. When Western countries refuse to adopt strict measures in pandemic prevention and control, they have to some extent surrendered to the virus.

Freedom of the press a rarity for Chinese journalists in US

Media exchanges are an important part of people-to-people and cultural exchanges between countries, as they communicate people's sentiments. Under relentless suppression from American politicians, the living and working environment for Chinese correspondents in the US has drastically deteriorated. While we treat the American people with a kind heart, we face unjustified difficulties, restrictions and rejection by US authorities.

Westlessness or Restlessness?

The West needs to learn that the West has more presence in the non-Western world today than it can imagine. Westerners need to be warned to tame their obsession with winning or losing. They are advised to learn to appreciate mutual interdependence and push for deeper convergence between the West and the rest! Stop being restless by giving up your deeply rooted superiority complex and genuinely embracing equality! Take it easy and you will be restful!
