When we need global cooperation to fight COVID-19, US practices 'America First'

NATO should take care of the real security concerns of its European member states, rather than simply showcase its military muscle. That would reveal positive reasons for its existence, perhaps stop it from inching closer to a “brain death.”

Tokyo Olympics on track but can't afford a false start

It will certainly be good news if Tokyo Olympics will be on schedule. But if it cannot go ahead in perfect condition, it might be better to delay for one year or so, when people's fully restored consumption desire will boost success of the Games. The quadrennial Olympic Games represent the hopes and dreams of countless athletes. That can certainly be said for the next host country too.

Befuddled by US orders not to wear a mask

Self-sacrifice has always been considered the highest virtue in a collective culture like China's. Many Chinese healthcare workers were infected by the virus because they didn't wear or have access to protective equipment but there was never an attempt to tell the public not to wear a mask or that they were of no use.

Trump sacrifices China-US ties to cover up his mishandling of coronavirus outbreak

Journalism, mutual understanding suffer in tit-for-tat expulsions

The ball is now in the US court. If the US further escalates the media war, China will fight back and impose additional reciprocal countermeasures. China will not take the lead in stirring up tensions, but it by no means will concede in face of US provocations. The US should have learned this lesson from the trade war it launched against China.

China's venomous critics embarrass themselves as COVID-19 now tests West governments

Despite all that it has done, China will still face anti-China critics, Cold War-like propaganda and nasty tweets. Yet, the Chinese people don't care. It seems Tim Cook doesn't either.

US travel ban could lead to greater alienation among NATO allies

Whether US military forces abroad will get infected is greatly related to local health conditions. If a large-scale virus outbreak occurred at US military bases worldwide, then it would have a huge impact on US global hegemony and could accelerate alienation between the US and Europe.

Hindsight shows China took appropriate measures

China's fight against COVID-19 realized the most fundamental pursuit of the people - bringing the epidemic under control. At the same time, the government has been responding to people's resentments on various issues with a positive attitude. China's efforts are not as bad as some people have imagined. There were indeed a lot of problems to be addressed and solved. But we must be realistic in our self-estimation but not improperly belittle ourselves due to these problems. This is the proper attitude we should take.

Trump's racist tweet another attempt to deflect blame

The spread of the epidemic in the US will continue for some time. Whether the emergency measures in the US will be effective remains to be seen. While the outbreak has become unavoidable in the US, Trump is deflecting attention by trying to provoke the American people's hatred of China. This will only hinder the US to fight against the epidemic.

Freedom of the press a rarity for Chinese journalists in US

Media exchanges are an important part of people-to-people and cultural exchanges between countries, as they communicate people's sentiments. Under relentless suppression from American politicians, the living and working environment for Chinese correspondents in the US has drastically deteriorated. While we treat the American people with a kind heart, we face unjustified difficulties, restrictions and rejection by US authorities.

Westlessness or Restlessness?

The West needs to learn that the West has more presence in the non-Western world today than it can imagine. Westerners need to be warned to tame their obsession with winning or losing. They are advised to learn to appreciate mutual interdependence and push for deeper convergence between the West and the rest! Stop being restless by giving up your deeply rooted superiority complex and genuinely embracing equality! Take it easy and you will be restful!

US lacks responsibility of a superpower in face of pandemic
