Watch out! 'Beautiful sight' in HK is spreading across the US

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once called the violent protests in Hong Kong "a beautiful sight to behold." Now, the "beautiful sight" is extending from Hong Kong to over a dozen US states. US politicians now can enjoy this sight from their own windows. Quite a few places across the US are witnessing protesters setting police stations on fire, smashing shops, blocking roads, attacking places and destroying various public facilities, as if the radical rioters in Hong Kong somehow snuck into the US and created a mess like they did last year in Hong Kong.

US should stand with Minnesota violent protesters as it did with HK rioters

The chaos in Hong Kong has lasted for over a year and military forces have not been dispatched. Yet after only three days of chaos in Minnesota, Trump publicly threatened the use of firepower and implied military forces could be utilized. That is the state of US inequality and another example of the country's double standards. Well, America, what should I say?

False alarm click bait renews calls to curb false info

Netizens need to open their eyes wider, make comments more carefully, and know the whole truth before letting their emotions get provoked. This should be a social consensus. After all, we are all living in an era of information overload. It is our responsibility to treat all information more carefully, and to differentiate truth from rumors.

Canada's new epidemic: coronavirus-induced racism

While Canada has fought hard for decades to become an open and pluralistic society where all cultures can commingle, Trumpism has tainted our society in recent years. His mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis that has killed over 100,000 Americans on his watch is only exacerbating the matter.

Which way will the international winds blow after COVID-19 pandemic?

And perhaps even the president himself, who has shown a degree of rationality in his time in office, can also come to his senses and return to his original program of working together with countries like Russia and China, for the common benefit of humanity.

The US is grave of the weak, the old, the poor, and minorities

The death toll of COVID-19 in the US passed 100,000 on Wednesday, the biggest shame for the superpower in more than a century. It reflects the decline of the US political system and the government's blatant dereliction of duty. But no officials were jailed or sacked.

100,000-plus American COVID deaths, Trump's art of the deal?

Just as Washington Post's opinion writer Paul Waldman put it, "Can we stop pretending Trump is fit to be president?" When innocent ordinary Americans are suffering from the Trump administration's inaptitude, its moral culpability becomes clearer every day.

Meng ruling by Canadian court outrageously wrong

The ruling is a failed judgment. It has deeper implications. It is well known that the Meng case was tainted by the Trump administration's interests, and that Canada has foolishly chosen to be caught up in the middle of the two largest powers in the world. Both China and Canada have been victims of US hegemony.

US virus death toll a new stain on its human rights record

Now, it's impossible for the US to count on Trump's leadership to contain the epidemic. The inflection point won't appear until a miracle drug or vaccine is developed, or the novel coronavirus naturally becomes less infectious, or Trump loses the election. Before that, more Americans will have to struggle.

Facing Western public opinion calmly makes China ideologically stronger

No normal countries have kept “diplomatic” relations with Taiwan. Those which have official contact with the island are being very cautious when making relevant moves. Yet, China cannot hold others' tongues when it comes to the Taiwan question. China would seem to have lost the game if we get ourselves into a wrangle with such congress members and public opinion.

Despite discords with China, UK won't totally tilt toward US

For Britain in the post-Brexit era, it needs to proactively win China's support. The UK must maintain a delicate diplomatic balance with different major countries otherwise it will be dragged into a dilemma. The UK, unlike Australia, may not completely tilt toward the US.
