US failing to handle own business weakens its power

The farce of the 2020 US presidential election is still going on. The more lively this soap opera is, the more it proves that the decline of the US is attributed to itself. It's time for the American elites to wake up and take a good look at the US and the world. They should be aware that lingering in the fantasy where the US is still the world's overwhelming “lord” and act on this illusion is dangerous to their country.

Pompeo's Taiwan remarks are against reality, total nonsense

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seems to love attention as much as his boss, President Donald Trump. Pompeo is often seen making gaffes about different issues, but people laugh them off most of the time.

US, Taiwan island to miss devt opportunities for taking confrontational mind-set

The assets the US has given to Taiwan are a blame game between the Kuomintang and the Democratic Progressive Party, which are accusing each other of missing the chance to bring Taiwan to RCEP. The US is playing the geopolitical card in the Asia-Pacific region, but only Taiwan has swallowed the bait. The two will eventually miss opportunities from the development of the Asia-Pacific.

Even though the US post-election chaos has drawn global attention, the rest of the world is looking on from a ringside seat, watching and waiting to see how and if the US climbs out of the mayhem.

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.

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 should spare his concern on Myanmar election

The future of Myanmar lies in the hands of its people. After all, an election is a way to choose a path that best suits their country, and people of Myanmar have made their choice. The US and other Western countries should not be too narcissistic about their ability to dictate other country's choices.

Chinese public won't be swayed by who sits in the White House

The Chinese people pay attention to the US presidential election because China-US relations are important to both countries, and have a profound impact on the world. But the Chinese people also view the election as an entertainment show, and certainly they won't be into the drama too much.

COVID-19 fight will prove whether Biden is different from Trump

If the US still fails in the fight against the coronavirus after it gradually begins to take proper prevention measures, the long told myth of the US will come to an official end.

Outgoing Trump leaves behind legacy of degraded US politics

Trump has changed the US. Even after he's gone, the political legacy he leaves behind will be difficult to eliminate. Trump still refuses to admit defeat till now even though the leaders of major Western countries have all extended their congratulations to Biden. This is by no means just because of his personality. It reflects that US society is politically divided enough to bolster Trump's contempt for the president-elect. I said last week that the US political system is in degradation, which has caused strong repercussions in Western public opinion. If Westerners look at this problem without holding any stance, they will find I am right.

US decision on ETIM will set back global anti-terror cause

The Trump administration's decision on the terrorist group will cultivate arrogance in all international terrorist organizations including ETIM and inspire them to launch more rampant terrorist activities.

US leadership change can hardly bridge social divide

The leadership change is more like a release of US social anxiety. Can the leadership change play a role in correction? It is very hard to judge. Few believe US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will make contribution to bridging the social divisions.

US elections attract few Chinese fans

The mainstream view of today's Chinese people is that China and the US are two major countries under completely different conditions. They should each go their own way.

Paris Agreement a tool for American politicians' gain

It is costing the US' reputation and undermining its international status. It leaves the world with the impression that international promises made by the US are unreliable.
