Pompeo makes arrogant, hysterical statements about HK autonomy

The US is a superpower, but its national strength has weakened in recent years because this trade war and nonsense over Hong Kong they push. Now, it is seriously ill. Pompeo better wear his face masks before he talks wildly.

UK should worry about its COVID-19 situation instead of HK affairs

The UK is deeply trapped in the COVID-19 epidemic. It may be wiser for the UK to first think about controlling the epidemic and returning to the normal life as soon as possible.

Western elite view of China's governance wrong

Fukuyama's view represents the way many US and Western elites view China. On the one hand, they are concerned about the success of China's model and they always tend to have a critical attitude toward the Chinese system. On the other, they aim at changing the Chinese system and turning China into a so-called liberal and democratic country in the Western sense. When they find they cannot change China and China is developing rapidly with its own model, they fall into a collective anxiety and thus regard China as an ideological enemy.

Pompeo promotes US interests at Australia's cost

China's importance to Australia is much bigger than that of Australia to China. Australia should stop blindly following the US and make itself caught up in China-US competition. Many Australian observers try to convince China that Australia is not a lapdog of the US. But if Australia follows its current path, the conclusion is not convincing.

Europe, US draw further apart amid COVID-19 pandemic

An arrogant and egoistic US is not in line with the interests of Germany and the rest of Europe. The US may further lose Europe and eventually isolate itself from the world in the post-pandemic era.

With flagging influence, US distorts China's loans

Wary of an alternative aid model provided by China, the US and its media can only resort to denunciation and discredit, reflecting its double standards and "America First"-style selfishness.

Obama-Trump feud shows US' virus fight still unfocused

The performance of the Trump administration amid the epidemic apparently is too poor to keep the former president silent. With over 1.4 million infections and nearly 90,000 deaths, it's fair to say the US coronavirus response is one of the worst in the world.

Washington calculates international obligation, benefit

The US has shocked the world in its mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even former US president Barack Obama said Saturday that many "folks" in charge "aren't even pretending to be in charge."

Giving up COVID-19 fight a betrayal to mankind

There is no miracle. All countries must treat the coronavirus seriously and make decisions based on scientific analysis instead of political interests. Giving up the COVID-19 fight and letting it spread freely would be a betrayal to all mankind.

UK needs another miracle out of COVID-19 mess

The UK wasted a few weeks' time when China fought hard against the virus, and when Italy began to see a surging number of confirmed cases of the disease on the European continent.

Previous disasters prepare China for COVID-19 fight

The effectiveness of China's epidemic prevention and control work has been proven in the first phase of China's virus fight. There is no doubt that China will sustain the anti-virus outcome, and achieve success in defeating the virus while resuming work and production.

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?
