Pompeo's dirty smears will never obliterate faith in CPC

Chinese people's living situation justifies the CPC's leadership, and Pompeo's malicious rhetoric fools no one. Haunted by the “Marxist-Leninismonster” in his brain, Pompeo and his like are dragging the American people into a capitalist black hole. It's very likely that Pompeo will eventually retreat from his position in months. By then, Pompeo's claims against China will sound like his political will. Yet China's booming development will attest that Pompeo is the “worst Secretary of State in history.”

Tokyo, Canberra won't sacrifice core interests for security cooperation

After Suga took office, Japan-Australia security cooperation has continued to move forward.

Biden will closely follow US road of traditional defense policy

Yet there is little possibility that the Biden administration will accidentally ignite a conflict in the South China Sea. However, the chances that Trump will do so in the final days of presidency are rising sharply as he needs to leave a wealthy legacy for the military industries before he officially leaves office. But for Biden, dealing with the messy relations with other countries will be his priority after dealing with the COVID-19 virus and troubled US economy.

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.
