Rioters call their nemesis by assaulting Global Times reporter

In no case should violence be tolerated anywhere in the world. This is the bottom line of a modern civilized society. As Hong Kong rioters have vented their rage at and attacked innocents, no excuse can exonerate them of the blame for violent crimes. Any attempt, especially by some biased Westerners, to defend them is nothing short of being an accomplice in the violence.

Hong Kong must make a choice: stability or turmoil?

Hong Kong will have to choose. If it provides opportunities for terrorism, Hong Kong will be engulfed in turmoil and most Hongkongers will lose their stable life. But if Hong Kong chooses stability, then it should not give any chance for terrorism and should firmly crack down on terrorist activities. A middle course does not exist.

UK should safeguard autonomy with Huawei 5G decision

The US attempt to contain China's rise is doomed to fail in an era of globalization. There is no reason for the UK to become an accomplice to a futile effort and be caught up between China and the US.

Jeffrey Epstein death reveals flaws in US political system

The US system was once a model that most developing countries were eager to learn, but it is now trapped in a vicious spiral and has made people lose hope. Mysteries hidden in Epstein's case might have gone with his death, but people's anger and discontent should be enough to make Washington reflect.

Radical Western extremists threaten global security

Believing their ideologies and civilizations were superior, the British colonists slaughtered indigenous Australians. They even thought the massacre removed the inferior people. Such an ideology of Western superiority was similar to that of Adolf Hitler.

US Indo-Pacific Strategy will lead to chaos

As a US ally, Australia is considered a key regional player to contain China. But over the years, it has to some extent depended on and benefited from China's development. Washington's attempts to contain Beijing will eventually divide the region, and Canberra can by no means be immune to the impact.

White nationalism feeds off failed globalization adaptation

Can Western countries work out a solution to prevent the specter of white nationalism further dividing their societies? That's whether the West can stop its decline. Social division will accelerate Western decline.

US relations with other countries should not target China

Washington should understand that simply training some military personnel or providing military aid cannot make China's neighboring countries develop. China has helped these countries' infrastructure, including power plants, railways and highways, and they serve not only Chinese companies. The infrastructure also helps US and other countries' investment, logistics and electricity in the region. China has set an example for the US.

A racially divided society will not make US 'great again'

US leadership and endurance capabilities in its competition with China will be further undermined. China is capable of bearing the US-launched trade war because Chinese society is unified in dealing with the challenge. Can the US be united to make the country great again? That's a big question.

India needs 3rd-party mediation on Kashmir conflict

The most important thing is India and Pakistan's will and wisdom to seek a resolution to the conflict through political negotiations. Only in this way can South Asia's peace and stability, as well as the interests of countries concerned, be guaranteed. New Delhi should not act against the will of international community.

Unlike US, China never seeks to be world leader

Such a misunderstanding of China stems from a wrong contention, which will thus lead to biased arguments and conclusions.

UK shouldn't be held hostage by US on Huawei issue

It's hoped the UK government makes a wise decision on the Huawei issue. Shouldn't it insist on choosing the best for itself rather than being kidnapped by US foreign policy?

The US cannot strong-arm a determined China

The US is no longer the superpower it used to be, that it can freely manipulate China. Regardless of who is elected US president in 2020, as long as we hold our ground and do what we should, the US won't be able to strong-arm us anymore.
