Disrespect for science hurts US' COVID-19 battle

Why should people's lives be "sacrificed" when there are safer ways to restore consumer confidence, such as the government's effective protection for public safety? How many American people are willing to "sacrifice" their lives for the country's economy? What has happened to democracy and human rights?

US should focus on tackling virus, not geopolitical rivals

In the election year, both Republicans and Democrats are focusing on politicizing the pandemic and turning it into a trial of strength and influence with China. But the very lesson the US should learn from the pandemic is that the biggest threat facing the US is not its perceived geopolitical rivals such as China, but the great nature.

To safeguard national security, it is time for China to build up nuclear deterrent

I suggested in a Weibo post on Friday that China should increase its nuclear warheads to 1,000 in a relatively short time span, and to procure at least 100 DF-41 strategic missiles.

China could nonchalantly shrug Western, US idiocies

China needs to adopt an indifferent attitude to the idiocies of the US government and a couple of its diehard supporters. Their political system determines that many politicians have a big mouth. So, how can they be kind to China in rhetoric?

Fundamentalist myopia drives US campaign against China

Pompeo and some US politicians must face up to China's unstoppable rise. Such deep-rooted fundamentalism, which regards different civilizations as adversaries, is the biggest threat to world peace and development.

Global cooperation will plug loopholes the US creates

Cooperation is the most effective solution to fix that loophole. But if the world cannot keep a sober head on this, there will probably be a more profound crisis waiting for humanity after the pandemic is gone.

EU faces dilemma of following US' China policy

How to treat China's rise was already a difficult task for the bloc. After the pandemic broke out, the West, including the EU, finds itself confronted with another challenge, namely whether to acknowledge that China has a capacity Western countries aren't equipped with – the capability to resolve problems in a crisis.

White House fools American people to shirk responsibility

The US government has become infamous for repeatedly ducking responsibility on China over its own failings. If the US triggers a domino effect by stripping China of its sovereign immunity, it will probably be disdained by all other countries.

Washington should right wrongs while they can

Respecting medical science is perhaps the most significant thing to do right now. The pandemic is far from over and the US has a lot to learn from the experience of others, including China. If Washington attaches importance to people's lives, it should shelve its ideological difference and attacks against Beijing, and right wrongs before it is too late.

Ex-colonialists should prepare for China's counterpunch

There is no logic and no rationale that China has to bear infamy and compensate for mistakes it has never made. Is it that in the mind of many Westerners Chinese are born inferior to white people, so they never believe the Chinese can do anything better than them?

Trump needs to explain high COVID-19 death toll in the US

The number of confirmed cases in the US is still growing at the speed of more than 20,000 every day, and over 40,000 people have died of the coronavirus. The world needs to ask why.

Australia joins US bandwagon over virus policy

President Trump is restoring America as a selfish state among selfish states. It certainly serves no Australian interest if Australia becomes one of them. China is building a cooperative architecture in the Asia-Pacific region to push forward joint development rather than dominate the region.

China's foreign aid shouldn't be bridled by controversy

Beijing has the responsibility to offer medical support to those countries ravaged by the coronavirus. Any responsible global power prioritizing people's lives would make the same choice as China.

Cooperate with US states on virus fight, not federal government

China will continue humanitarian cooperation with the US but won't ignore how Washington has sabotaged it. We should use our actions to demonstrate our attitude.

Nobody accountable in US despite rising virus deaths

While millions of lives are threatened by the #COVID19, the #US is still seeing endless debates over #federalism instead of full cooperation between the federal and state governments. How could people expect accountability mechanisms come into play in such a country?

COVID-19 battle is not a zero-sum game between countries

Perhaps the biggest lesson that we should learn from the COVID-19 pandemic is countries with different political systems and ideologies should unite to deal with our common enemy. Learning to coexist may be the goal of human development in the future as well as the solution to global problems.
