Western criticism of China proves unjustified as coronavirus victory nears

The Chinese government is determined, and the Chinese people can well discern between right and wrong and will hardly allow themselves to be at the mercy of Western-controlled international public opinion.

Obsession over COVID-19's origin misses the full picture

Currently, China's top priority is winning the battle against COVID-19. After arduous work, the positive trend in the prevention and control work is now expanding. We must remain vigilant and continue making unremitting efforts. We are happy to hear more good news as China and the world fight the epidemic together, but improper, stigmatizing language that tries to lay blame can only be considered intentionally unhelpful. As Frankopan notes, “The good news is that our interconnectivity means we can also share information quickly and effectively, and hopefully that means global solutions are quicker to deliver if everyone's minds are focused on solving the same problem.” Let us stay focused.

US hypocrisy unveiled in suppressing Chinese media outlets

Freedom of speech does not mean people can be irresponsible in the remarks they make. As China goes all out in fighting the coronavirus epidemic, the Wall Street Journal somehow feels justified in provoking racist sentiment, and the US government has backed such an attitude. It is ironic that the US continues to crown itself guardian of freedom of speech.

Let the West deceive itself in virus fight

Let the West deceive itself. Let these countries dodge their faults and pass the buck. No matter how they distort the facts and attempt to control public opinion, the truth remains unchanged: China has played a vital leading role in fighting the epidemic, demonstrated its influence as a responsible major power, and established a positive international image.

Stigmatizing face masks undermines epidemic control in the West

Western governments should be more active in the battle against the COVID-19, and learn lessons from China, which is on the frontline of the fight and has gained precious experience, and do whatever they can to protect their people – even in nontraditional ways.

The US owes an apology to the world

The US founding fathers hoped the country would be humble, pursue freedom, call for unity, and contribute to the well-being of every American and all of humanity. But how are you conducting yourselves now? US politicians today should apologize to the great American founders!

US politicians incite populism, gamble with people's health

By inciting populism, to what extent can US politicians increase their approval rate? In fact, the effect is limited. Some Americans may be dissatisfied with US politicians' response to the epidemic, and thus some have placed the blame on China. Their supporters may buy it, because they agree with almost everything the politicians say, but they may pay a heavy price.

The US wants to get out of Afghanistan so it can deal with China

Once extremist Muslims return to power in Afghanistan, this could also bring potential instability to China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. This serves the US strategy of great power competition. The US is now eager to get out of Afghanistan even if it means disregarding the very real potential that Afghanistan will be swamped by extremist violence. Allowing extremist Muslim forces to move eastward could also very well be an intended consequence of the US deal with the Taliban. The US-Taliban deal has done little to clear the muddy waters of the Afghan war.

India's attempt to provoke China over Da Cui Yun incident must be countered

Last year, the Indian Navy blatantly expelled a Chinese scientific research vessel on the high seas near the Andaman Islands, and this year India created an excuse to seize the Da Cui Yun vessel. China must firmly counter India's provocative actions, and Chinese companies must seek compensation through legal channels.

Jesse Watters attacks wrong target for US' failure in tackling COVID-19

Most Western media outlets are run by capitalists who have complicated connections to political circles. Such being the case, when these media outlets try to use racist words to incite hatred and shift blame, it is quite clear why they are doing so and what they are up to.
