  • Political cowardice stops closure of Guantanamo prison

    Editor's Note: January 11 marked 20 years since the opening of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, the infamous US prison located at a US Navy base in southern Cuba that represents injustice and abuse. “How did I harm America that America has to do this to me? And of course, there was never an answer,” Moazzam Begg (Begg), a British Pakistani who was once held in extrajudicial detention by the US government in the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp, told Global Times (GT) reporter Wang Wenwen in a recent interview. What was his experience there? Will the prison ever be closed? Begg shared his thoughts with GT.

    It's been one year since Joe Biden took office as US president. It is a tradition in the US for the president to deliver the State of Union address in January or February. However, Biden decided to postpone it to March 1. This may indicate that the White House is not so confident about its accomplishments. Both Biden and the Democratic Party will also have to face the serious challenge posed by the 2022 midterm elections in the US Congress. But things could get even worse in another two months.

Since then, China's per capita income has multiplied many times; rising from just $156 to $10,434 in 2020 and lifting 800 million people out of poverty. Economic transformation at this scale and speed surely has no precedence in human history and the Chinese people and the leadership of the Communist Party of China deserve credit for this.

  • A letter to Sir Geoffrey Nice: Don't get upset for failure of 'Uyghur Tribunal'

  • Reluctant to draw lesson from Soviet Union, how much further can US go?

    The US has never been a winner in the Cold War – its failure is only 30 years late. Although the US today is still far from disintegration, it is getting closer to the tipping point of a civil war.

  • The US seems unable to extricate itself from the swamp of the 2021 Capitol riot

    The US Capitol riot has become a swamp of US politics. The US, caught in the swamp, should focus on its internal affairs, instead of judging other countries with its discredited democratic standard, which is a historical irony.

  • China-LatAm cooperation continues momentum despite changes in regional countries' politics

    This year is a year of elections in Latin America. Gabriel Boric, the candidate for the left-wing political party in Chile, was recently elected as president by an absolute majority. His election has aroused widespread concern in the international community, not only because he will be Chile's youngest modern president when he takes office, but also because he declared "the end of the neoliberal era," which signals a left-ward trend in Chile.

  • Will 'dictatorial democratic' DPP allow Fukushima food imports to Taiwan for political gains?

    The dining table of the Taiwan public will become the trash bin of the US and Japan. The health of Taiwan people has become the stepping stone for the DPP to curry favor from its foreign masters. While the DPP authority laughs, 23 million Taiwan people suffer.

  • A 'China hand' from India bears high hopes amid the current stalemate

    The Modi administration has made the decision to appoint Pradeep Kumar Rawat, a “China hand,” as Indian ambassador to China, which is itself a signal. India may want to seek a breakthrough amid current stalemate in bilateral relations.

  • Top-level push, not Western-style reactionary acts, will advance women's rights in China

    If China, like some countries, indulges radical civil feminist campaigns, letting them develop like wildfire, the result won't be beneficial for women. Gender equality is a social revolution that must be advanced orderly under the government's leadership.
