Without reflecting, Australia can be walking into the dark


If Canberra cannot reflect on its previous moves against China and make adjustments, improving China-Australia relations will be far from visible. At that time, Australians will know how it feels like to walk into the dark.

Not joining RCEP a strategic blunder that will lead to India's isolation in globalization

For other RCEP members, India's opt-out might be a good thing. The Indian market looks vast, but it's quite closed and conservative with a low actual consumption level. Besides, organizations in which India participates and has a big say often have low efficiency and don't function well. It's fair to say India is unable to help achieve anything but is good at spoiling things. Opting out of the RCEP means India will be isolated in the next round of globalization and regional economic integration, but for other RCEP members, it means they will meet fewer obstacles in promoting regional economic integration.

Pompeo's dirty smears will never obliterate faith in CPC

Chinese people's living situation justifies the CPC's leadership, and Pompeo's malicious rhetoric fools no one. Haunted by the “Marxist-Leninismonster” in his brain, Pompeo and his like are dragging the American people into a capitalist black hole. It's very likely that Pompeo will eventually retreat from his position in months. By then, Pompeo's claims against China will sound like his political will. Yet China's booming development will attest that Pompeo is the “worst Secretary of State in history.”

New Delhi's ambivalent attitude toward RCEP

As a rising power, India should think about its role and the long-term development in Asia and beyond. This should be the attitude for India to develop its economy and diplomacy in a steadfast manner.

West's politicization of vaccine hurts its anti-virus efforts

The West's slander of China's vaccine also mirrors their fear about China's rapid rise in science and technology. They do not believe China is able to develop effective vaccine as they have been viewing China with pride and prejudice.

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.

US election is not a joke, some snooty US elites are

The US election is not laughable. But what is laughable are the Americans who said so and some Chinese public intellectuals who follow these Americans.

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.
