Huanqiu, China’s official newspaper, published an article commenting on the U.S. aircraft carrier, the USS George Washington, participating in the military exercises in the Yellow Sea on August 13, 2010.
“In recent years, the United States has repeatedly probed China’s strategic bottom line, attempted to limit China within the U.S. preset framework, and tried to block China’s progress by creating conflicts on the seas, supporting the separatists in China, and being provocative in trade and economics. This is considered to be the Pentagon’s regular strategy toward China. A growing China will definitely not tolerate this.”
“The biggest external obstacle to China’s rise is the United States. The Pentagon is making a big effort to activate the obstacle.”
