Will the US be able to reform its system after pandemic?

Sanders saw the gap between the rich and poor in the US and the crisis it has brought. But his so-called democratic socialism lacks the will to oppose capitalism. It is also impossible for him to promote reform under the current conditions.

Rising gun sales could be more deadly than COVID-19

The proliferation of guns could be even more fatal than the virus. The US inaction on gun control and the green light given to the firearm business amid the epidemic fully demonstrates its disdain for the right to life – the most basic human right – which also partly explains why the US has so poorly handled the growing coronavirus epidemic.

Taiwan's green camp shows narrow-mindedness by targeting virus fight song

When people on the mainland talk about being united against the pandemic, entanglement across the straits rarely comes to mind, if ever. It's obvious that Yunnan Media Group teamed up with the stars to increase the popularity of the song. The producers had no intention of targeting Taiwan.

Western countries should abandon silly mask prejudices

Western countries are now the main battlefield of the global fight against the pandemic. It is time for them to abandon their prejudices and arrogance and take the lives of their own people more seriously.

Western attacks on China's media sound like sour grapes

Western media outlets should stop taking advantage of the coronavirus to attack China and the professionals who work in China's media. In the face of the mishandling of the pandemic in their own countries, their offensive and empty accusations simply sound like sour grapes.

US wrong to relieve captain who raised alarm about COVID-19

The US Congress has passed resolutions to interfere in China's handling of Dr. Li's case, but what it should really do is to criticize US inaction over COVID-19 and its unfair treatment of Crozier.

China-bashing politicians should investigate US' failures in fighting virus

The COVID-19 epidemic is raging in the US, but Scott is still attacking China and the WHO instead of doing something useful to the US fighting against the virus. If he has so much spare time, he should have called for a Congressional investigation into the US CDC and other federal departments. Perhaps Congress should appoint him head of the inspection team.

CIA is US govt's pawn to fabricate lies about China

All of these explain one fact: US politicians cannot accept that China has had a better control of the COVID-19 epidemic than the US does. After seeing that the US' death toll of the virus has surpassed that of China, their last psychological defense has collapsed.

Political systems mean nothing in battling virus pandemic

Having infected more than 862,000 people worldwide and killed over 42,400 as of the press time, the deadly novel coronavirus has seemingly declared war on humanity. To win this likely arduous struggle, all people, regardless of nationality, race or belief, must stand in the same camp and fight side by side. Provoking internal conflicts in this critical “wartime” is no different from surrendering to the virus.

Rise of US white supremacy portends new cold war or worse

Nonetheless, if this racism-related political virus continues spreading and more people are deceived by extreme speech, the US will see its existing lesions develop into a malignant tumor. If that occurs, it won't only be the vast innocent Americans who will suffer, but also the politicians who care only about their political interests.

Anti-virus fight fully shows Chinese govt serves its people

Limited liability government or unlimited liability government, it doesn't matter. Fewer infections, fewer deaths, these are the most hardcore indicators of all governance today. Anyone who tries to fool the public and let people forget this absolute thing through various interpretations has ulterior motives.

There's absolutely no room for cover-up regarding new outbreak

The government has the ability to turn the tide when the outbreak in Hubei was spreading, then it surely has the ability to carry on as it is. This is certainly easier to do than in previous national battle against the epidemic, and it is particularly valuable that, the vigilance of the government and the whole society has not been relaxed, and there is no reason for us to fall down again.

Politicizing China's anti-epidemic aid stems from bias

China is willing to offer help if any country is in need, but for those who keep smearing China's foreign assistance, they had better not use any China-provided supplies.

Cooperation possible if US politicians end paranoia

Here we can see a great opportunity and room for the US to cooperate with China. We sincerely hope the US politicians could stop their paranoia before it is too late. They should be honest to what is happening in the US and take effective as well as reasonable measures to combat COVID-19. The vast innocent Americans should not be victims of their pursuit of political interests.

Western govts must take more action to prevent humanitarian disaster

The world needs to unite and mobilize to save lives and safeguard human civilization. Reducing the death rate is the most urgent task, and international efforts must be made to develop a vaccine and treatment medicines. Politics must give away to humanitarianism, which is the only thing that matters now.

US government's China bashing a cover-up for virus failures

The Trump administration's performance amid the epidemic is a continuation of its policies of the past three years. It has long disregarded international obligations and has even undermined existing world rules and order. It is no surprise that it has been so desperately attempting to disparage China.
