No to the new cold war with China: an African American perspective

For the Black liberation and anti-imperialist movement in the US, we are clear – War is a class issue and we say not one drop of blood from the Black working class and poor to defend the capitalist oligarchy.

China-US tensions offer EU new opportunity

If the EU wants to become a pivot in the world order, it needs to transcend the scope of bilateral relations and the old system. It should grasp the major changes in the international pattern, focus on the construction of the new order, and find an appropriate position among them.

World should unite and denounce new cold war

West's sophomoric insults, supremacist thinking hurt the world

When tensions between two superpowers are at their highest levels in decades, cooler heads and long-term thinking is what is most needed to take a step back from the precipice, not sophomoric insults, name-calling and an orientalist and supremacist mode of thinking.

Aussies hitch wagon with the Pompeo-Esper express

If the Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected as the next US president and adjusts the China policy of the US, Australia will certainly follow suit. Where China-Australia relations head for will ultimately be determined by the US' relationship with China.

Domestic politics, nationalism misguide India's China policy

The Indian government, political parties, media and strategic circles have all laid blame on China for the souring bilateral relations and few have reflected upon India's own problems. This has made the prospect for China-India relations particularly worrying.

US hostility toward China rooted in hegemonic struggle

Washington's negative reaction is because the US seeks to maintain global hegemony. It is, therefore, hostile to any state that seeks sovereign independence - regardless of its model and internal system.

US suppression of China is not just about ideological differences

In order to legitimate their vicious campaign, certain US politicians have stigmatized the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and so on. Now they are slandering China ideologically. This actually shows that the US is outwardly strong, but inwardly weak.

Global Britain vision needs cohesive, credible Post-Brexit kick start

The UK has taken a back-and-forth attitude toward China. It has followed the US's campaign against China. Why has Britain changed its course in such a short time? What should be a wise choice for the UK when pressured by the US to pick sides?

A strong EU can mutually benefit China: German scholar

If the European Union succeeds in presenting itself as a strong political and economic force on the world stage, that will also be good for China, because it can profit from Europe not only as an export market, but also as a reliable and predictable player in international politics.

EU split on China as Beijing-Washington conflict worsens

China and the EU are strategic partners, whose consensus outweighs their divergence. The bilateral ties impact not only the two sides, but also global governance. Instead of being negatively influenced by their differences, Beijing and Brussels should maintain their friendly relationship and promote their coordination.

Trump policy toward China skewed by academic fanatic

Pompeo's remarks instigated greater hostility toward the US in China, adding resistance to a new round of China's reform and opening-up. The huge costs of this new cold war are also being imposed on American society. It is misleading and not in the US' own interests to allow people like Yu to dominate the formulation of US' China policy.

US futile trying to wedge Chinese and CPC

US politicians think they can achieve their goal through attacking the CPC. They overestimate themselves. They try to alienate the people from the CPC like ants trying to shake a big tree. They underestimate the solidarity and cohesion of Chinese society.

The last thing Trump should do is push China as his country falters

If we are indeed in a "strategic competition" with China, the only rational policy is to try to rebuild the US - and not try to tear down China. Because in spite of all the ink that has been spilt on this issue, China did not become an economic power by stealing American technology. They did it through the blood, sweat and tears of their billion plus population - and did this quite effectively under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

Australia unwisely boards US leaky boat to meddle in South China Sea

In a filing to the United Nations on Saturday, the Australian government said there was "no legal basis for China to draw straight baselines connecting the outermost points of maritime features or 'island groups' in the South China Sea." Australia's rejection of China's claim to key parts of the South China Sea comes after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement accusing China's South China Sea claims "completely unlawful" on July 13. The US statement failed to cause a ripple among South China Sea relevant claimants, so why has Australia jumped in and joined the US in provoking China at this time?
