The “beacon of human rights” has almost become a laughing stock. When the US replaces legal process with whips and law trials with torture, it is ignoring the development of its civilization over the past centuries, and even going back to square one.
Biden clamors that "America is back." But what has been happening in the US cannot stop people from doubting: Can the US be saved?
EU's faith to becoming a geopolitical power is not only a response to the era of major power competition, but also the result of losing confidence in US. They will keep cooperating under alliance framework. Unfortunately, the framework is getting rickety.
How does the US, which ranks first in terms of the numbers of infections and deaths, have the poise to hold a virtual global COVID-19 summit? The US may not expect the summit to have any substantial effect, but wants to make it a platform to showcase its leadership.
Strong military strength, especially strategic nuclear power, has made the US in deep awe of confronting China. To prevent military conflicts between China and the US, the US must retreat from provoking China's core interests.
The recent letter from Stanford University showed that at least 177 professors are still rational and vigilant toward the resurgence of McCarthyism.
As the virus continues to hit, the problems for the West are thornier, because they have to be prepared for social chaos or even deeper crises as their anti-pandemic measures have started shaking their core liberal values.
Some Western countries and media outlets are still immersed in their own fantasies, sensationally hyping the "crises" surrounding China. In fact, most of China's neighboring countries are stable, as the center of the global economy is shifting from the US and Europe to Asia.
The US anti-epidemic failure is the joint work of the Trump team and the Biden team. The reason that neither the Republican-led govt nor the Democrat-led govt managed to fight the virus is the malfunction of the US political system.
“Permanent military presence” in Indo-Pacific is merely London's exaggerated illusion. Time for UK to wake up from colonial days and be cautious on China's doorsteps.
Political stance appears to be the only guidance for US media practices. When the US media praise China, they do not aim at studying from China to equal it, but to shame their political opponents.
China is not obligated to save the disaster generated by the US in Washington's way.
The EU has neither the audacity nor capacity to give the island substantive support and it cannot afford crossing the line of the Taiwan question.
France must be aware how much this will affect China-French relations.
The US withdrawal from Afghanistan has become the laughing stock of the world. But it seems that the US and its elites think it had done something noble
Pro-war political madness will bring nothing but catastrophe to India.
The US' failure in Afghanistan is mainly the responsibility of the top US military leaders.
Japan's playing tricks will only make itself lose on both sides – becoming cannon fodder for US interests on one hand and provoking the Chinese mainland.
Human rights are not empty slogans, nor are they tools to interfere in other countries' domestic affairs.
As the epidemic situation is worsening in the US, Washington will definitely continue to pass the buck to Beijing.
Even when a senior US official comes, Singapore will not change its stance.
It is hoped that the US and the West can seriously reflect on this and stop inflicting more sufferings on the Afghan people.
For a long time, the US had almost a monopoly on what human rights concept is. However, human rights conditions in the US have continued to decline in recent years, and the US has long lost its dominant position on the issue.
The narratives of US smears against China look alike with the similar logic and no solid evidence. US media outlets are getting so perfunctory in making fake news.
While the US continues to create chaos in various parts of the world and trigger turmoil, China and Russia have demonstrated their strength to deal with regional problems.
Signals can be captured from the US' ugly withdrawal from Afghanistan - the US spent a lot of time studying how to contain China and Russia, but in the end suffered a huge failure in Afghanistan.
The US' mishandling of COVID-19 is related to US politicians' exploiting their political instrument to pass the buck to others and distract public attention. It is really a misfortune for Americans to have such politicians under their system.
Lithuania must realize that blindly following the US will neither help calm the chaotic demonstrations in the country, nor help it gain a proper position in the international community.
One can be a 'hero' when needed, then a 'criminal' the next minute when he is of no use. It's a pity that no US politician seems to care more about the battle against the public health crisis than a sex scandal. This is how US-style democracy works.
The American style COVID-19 fight is a fight to maintain hegemony. This is fully demonstrated in the US' undermining international cooperation, discrediting and suppressing China in COVID-19 origins tracing, and its vaccine nationalism.
The US no longer holds the global moral high ground. This is a fact in international relations. What adjustments will the US make? Will the country reinvigorate its capability to reforms?
Chang has been 'deceiving' and misleading the US politicians and public, preventing them to have an objective understanding on China.
If Western media could truly play their role of serving the public interest, they should help trigger a deep reflection among Western countries and advocate them to learn from China's experience that has proven to be effective, instead of living in the fear of being surpassed by China with its systematic advantage and fast economic recovery.
In China, the accountability system is a protection of people's interests. But in the West, the so-called humanitarianism seems to have become an empty talk.
The highly infectious Delta variant brings the question of whether Obama's upcoming party will become a super-spreader event that overshadows the US' already wretched fight against the pandemic.
The fact that it took so long to recognize the emancipation at the federal level is a powerful illustration of Ottawa's hypocrisy over human rights.
It's Australia's double standard by criticizing China's strict measures in curbing the spread of the coronavirus, and now Canberra moves to send military to Sydney to help enforce a lockdown.
If the US continues to stir up the South China Sea issue and add fuel to the fire, forcing Southeast Asia to get on its chariot against China, it may be disappointed no matter how hard the US manipulates.
Be it unprofessionally linking China's first gold medal to COVID-19 or attributing the Chinese people's enthusiasm for the Olympics to nationalist sentiment, CNN's goal is to tarnish China's international image.
Coordinating with the US in disrupting the Asia-Pacific situation will only dwarf the UK's own national image, and weaken the attractiveness of the UK's global strategy.
US' allies including the UK do not have the desire of “decoupling” and engage in new cold war with China.
China does not oppose investigations. What it opposes is investigations based on presumption of guilt and making use of the investigations to play political tricks.
The economic, technological and military strengths of China and Russia are not only huge, but also have a wide-ranging influence. The US and the West are increasingly unable to provoke China and Russia at the same time.
scientists generally believe that solely relying on vaccines is far from enough to defeat the virus. COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted in England, but it's very likely they will be re-imposed again soon. As scientists have warned, the UK's policies will certainly represent a threat to the entire world during this period, as it will provide the ideal breeding ground for vaccine-resistant variants. The UK has become a stumbling block in the global pandemic fight.
The situation around Afghanistan is rather complex, but China clearly knows what its national interests are. We should not create enemies for ourselves at this crunch time.
Neither China's target of terrorism in Xinjiang nor interactions with the Taliban has anything to do with religion or ethnicity. The rhetoric by @RFI_Cn is totally a straw man argument attempting to drive a wedge between China and the Islamic world.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), and the intergovernmental organization is expected to see another expansion by granting the status of dialogue partners to Saudi Arabia and Egypt, a decision that was approved at the recent meeting of the SCO Council of Foreign Ministers in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
The Chinese ship has no intention to provoke Australia. But Canberra needs to understand, the activities of Chinese ships have become a new normal. Australia should learn to adapt to the new normal.
In the first place, they portrayed Xinjiang as a place where human rights are frequently violated to provide a reasonable context for their “forced labor” accusation. They upheld the banner of human rights to slander China's governance in Xinjiang and regional development in a bid to crack down on local industries.
Many Europeans are deeply influenced by American-style thinking and unconsciously worship the US.
Obviously, Washington wants to drag China's Xinjiang into a quagmire that plagues Afghanistan to create trouble for China. Fortunately, this reality has been seen through by an increasing number of countries, especially Muslim countries.
Chang has long been a laughingstock. His frequent turned-out-to-be-wrong judgments have triggered a backlash from objective forces in American society.
From Afghanistan to Syria and Iraq, the US has left countless messes to the world and committed a series of “crimes against humanity” in the name of the "war on terrorism."
The US' values are not based on merit, but on US politicians' interests.
The World Peace Forum over the weekend in Beijing was an epitome of the contest between the East and the West. When trying to prove the idea of China wanting to impose its model on other countries, French Ambassador to China Laurent Bili cited China's “threat to freedom of expression.”
Adrian Zenz has an obsession with making an issue of Xinjiang to earn "fame" and benefits from the West.
Blindly and recklessly following the US' policy is very dangerous and will only bring great losses to Lithuania's national interests.
The celebration of the CPC's centennial will be a watershed moment for the West to reflect on the way it views the CPC and China and considers the role it should play on the world stage.
The real aim of the Human Rights Watch is to turn Australian universities into a haven for "Hong Kong secession" advocates.
China's human rights view has effectively guaranteed people's well-being and prosperous life, while the US' human rights boast aimed at showing off without substantial measures.
What has been revealed by the media about the sufferings of the indigenous people in the US and Canada is probably just the tip of the iceberg.
As the largest developing country, China has for a long time attached great importance to its relations with developing countries and regards developing countries as the basis of China's diplomacy.
The article was seeking to prove the reporter's pre-set assumptions with shady “evidence”. It deliberately excluded all the important factors and only intended to underline the “problems” of China's vaccines.
Even as Frances Adamson was once Australia's ambassador to China, she still has a superficial understanding of China. No wonder Canberra's overall perception of Beijing is biased.
The Trudeau administration tried to reduce the government's historical culpability into trivial matters. The international community will never agree to this.
Can the US summon its strength and pull itself together? However, instead of mulling over how to tackle domestic headaches, US politicians and policy elites are more keen on shaping countries like China and Russia as enemies and advocating a confrontational approach. It's unclear how politicians such as Sanders can help correct the US' reckless China policy.
With globalization and China's increasing openness, more and more foreigners arrive in China to seek academic and employment opportunities. Against this backdrop, cases involving foreigners committing crimes in the country have arisen. The public's attention to the cases should avoid focusing on the nationality of the suspect, but on the cases itself.
The US should send 25 million doses to the Taiwan island rather than 2.5 million. The strong political conditions attached to US' vaccine donation are: Taiwan must firmly follow Washington's lead and act as a strategic pawn to confront the mainland.
The West is now split with a stained reputation and declining strength, after making too many mistakes in the past decades. Who can really trust the West of today?
In the long run, the US may one day defeat the virus with its high technology, but such incompetent governance will only bring more trauma and social instability to the country.
In the face of such a US, a country will not benefit if it cannot keep its mind, but falls into Washington's narrative trap and becomes a vassal of the US in the end and sacrifices its own interests for US hegemony.
The significance of G7's narrative and the communiqué about China is far more symbolic than practical. What matters for China is how to concentrate on doing its own affairs well. This will be the most powerful response against G7 intervention.
At the end of May, US President Joe Biden ordered the intelligence community to "redouble" its efforts in the investigation of the origin of COVID-19 and report back to him in 90 days.
What ASEAN has been through in its relations with the US is like a mirror reflecting Washington's arrogance and selfishness.
The Canadian government is famous for human rights diplomacy internationally, and has formed an image as a bastion of human rights. However, the still increasing Islamophobia and human rights tragedies in Canada reflect Ottawa's hypocrisy.
As Young Chinese people become increasingly confident and start to view the world with a mind-set of equality, rather than looking up to the West, some young Westerners also see China as equal, instead of overlooking the latter with a condescending manner like their elders.
The increasingly close China-Russia relationship is partly driven by pressure from the US. However, as Washington now has become more aware of the risks it would bring to the US, Washington intends to play tricks to create a rift between Beijing and Moscow. But the China-Russia partnership is strong enough and won't be easily divided.
To many who witnessed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US does have some characteristics of the Soviet Union before its disintegration. Its political polarization and social divisions are too severe to reconcile.
The US might have realized it is not easy to turn ASEAN into a pawn, so Washington may push the region harder. According to Ge, Sherman's trip may be just a beginning. The US secretary of state may participate in the future ASEAN Regional Forum, the US defense minister may attend the ASEAN Defense Ministers' Meeting-Plus, and the US president may also likely join the ASEAN Summit. By then, the US will likely put more pressure on the region to serve the framework of its Indo-Pacific Strategy. But will such US offensive push Southeast Asian countries to behave in line with US expectation? The answer may disappoint Washington.
The Capitol Hill riots that aimed to overthrow existing systems have shown some omen of a 'color revolution.' When the US has been spreading 'color revolutions' in other countries, it has failed to introspect over its own deep-rooted problems. This has widened the estrangement between the US elites and the ordinary Americans. As a result, populists in the US have gathered strength to revolt against the elites
It is not easy to curb the destructive power of the US, but this is related to the interests and stability of all countries worldwide. European countries, as victims of Washington's spying, should demand a reasonable explanation from the US and Denmark. This will also be an important link for Europe to promote its own strategic autonomy, otherwise it will only go further away from the right path under the pressure of Washington.
Sooner or later, justice will prevail. Sooner or later, crimes will be settled by history.
Yet the US has trapped itself by abusing double standards in this self-righteous and presumptuous manner. Unless the RSF advocates for Capitol rioters as well when defending Lai, both the organization and its funders will become the butt of jokes eventually.
Some US lawmakers who clamored for the so-called defense of Taiwan, such as Marco Rubio who took the initiative in reintroducing the “Taiwan Relations Reinforcement Act” in March, have not even come out to call on Washington to provide vaccines to the island. Isn't this a huge embarrassment for Taiwan regional leader Tsai Ing-wen and the Democratic Progressive Party authorities?
When the truth of the landing and the arrest was still unclear, the EU lashed out. Apparently, the bloc wished to do something as soon as possible to demonstrate its political power. But such moves can hardly be regarded as being responsible. Even though the EU might achieve some political gains in the end, in terms of economy, trade, security or even politics the bloc increasingly values, what it will eventually get will be discounted. This is clearly contrary to the EU's own interests.
There are always anti-US forces in South Korea, which have been complaining about their country's foreign policy of following the US closely.
One year after Floyd's death, it seems that inequality and discrimination at all levels will further erode American society and continue to instigate social conflicts.
The Japanese government has been planning for a situation where China and Japan give each other cold shoulder in the political sphere while the two simultaneously develop economic ties. But this idea doesn't benefit China-Japan relations or the entire region. Tokyo should figure out what is really beneficial to the Japanese people.
When the US tries hard to make a fuss about China being an “existential threat,” it is only trapping itself, or pointing a gun at its own head.
The US has taken a wanton and reckless behavior toward Muslim countries. In addition to stirring up Middle East region, Washington is withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan hastily and irresponsibly. Terrorism is no longer a serious threat to the US, but the 20 years of war have turned Afghanistan into a mess.
The US cannot reshape its global leadership with lying. China welcomes it if the US takes real action to compete with China in providing global public goods. But if the US just talks big, it will continue to be the laughing stock of the world.
In Washington's playbook, Beijing is a rival, even an enemy, so it must have human rights issues, regardless of the facts. But Israel is different – how could a US ally have human rights issue?
In comparison to China, the US is not really concerned whether political reconciliation can reach in Afghanistan, whether there will be a civil war, or whether terrorist forces will return, observers believed. From the perspective of the US, Afghanistan is only a part of its global strategy, but is no longer the priority.
If the epidemic situation is hard to improve or the Indian people's dissatisfaction with the government aggravates, the cases that China-related topics will be hyped to divert people's attention will increase. Anti-China figures like Chellaney will take advantage to stir up more trouble.
The amount of dollars Taiwan can pay for maintaining “diplomatic ties” with its “allies” is far from the losses those countries suffer from not establishing ties with the Chinese mainland. It is time these countries realize their losses caused by Taiwan and the US.
US foreign policy is “weasel diplomacy,” and its Xinjiang tactic is to turn the place into another Afghanistan.
US belligerence and obsession with hegemony have inflicted considerable pain on people in war-torn countries. Its troops are leaving Afghanistan, but the humanitarian disasters it has caused won't disappear with their withdrawal, but will only become worse.
Tokyo's decision to dump nuclear-contaminated water will bring about disastrous consequences for all mankind. Thunberg, famously sharp-tongued, has instead avoided the topic, but has pointed the finger at China's environmental protection.
Attacking China's political system could bring some psychological comfort to US elites, but offers no solution to the woes of the US.
If US power is utilized to contain China while maintaining its hegemony, it is a true paper tiger. When China is safeguarding its sovereignty and core interests, it is unquestionably not a paper dragon.
