Canada's 'microphone diplomacy' will be to no avail

There is no conflict between China and Canada over the two sides' core interests. Yet given the economic and trade between them, differences in people's beliefs and Canada's own calculations over what to do as a middle power, China has not factored into Ottawa's thinking as a central player. That being the case, continuous diplomatic tensions will occur.

US becoming unrecognizable to Chinese as Washington lies, denies severity of virus

Even now, Washington's only strategy seems to be dumping its mistakes onto China and blaming China for all its problems. It's a shameless argument that has caught a lot of traction in the US, and such performance should have come from an ignorant country.

Chinese-Americans find connecting with BLM to be challenging

But in a racially charged America, we often don't get the opportunity to consider each other's perspective, before being dragged into a preformed narrative of racial conflict. Instead, this predisposition only makes tensions that much worse.

US pressure on Aussies against China difficult to be ruled out in the short-run

Russia, West feud over WWII memories

Out of the need of realpolitik, the West can ignore historical truth, and in the post-truth era, the West can use its discourse power to hide the history. It is necessary to support fair evaluations of WWII.

Pompeo's attack on UN Human Rights Council invokes loathing

Obviously, a country is not perfect just because it is labeled itself as a "democratic country." Every nation has its own governance issues that need to be addressed. And Pompeo's arrogance toward the UN Human Rights Council and other countries will only deepen the loathing of the international community against the Trump administration.

Trump weirdly attacks Chinese press under auspices of transparency

Washington has repeatedly accused China of suppressing “freedom of speech.” However, US' move to restrict Chinese media outlets is inconsistent with its criteria of “freedom of speech” as protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. Suppressing Chinese media will restrain the Chinese people from gaining a clear and unbiased picture of what the US really is.
