Huanqiu Editorial: Use China’s Economic Strength to Conquer U.S. Military Power

Huanqiu, the Chinese edition of Global Times, published an editorial on August 7, 2010. titled, “China Should Use its Own Economic Strength to Conquer U.S. Military Power.” Below is a partial translation:

“What is the strength of the U.S. today? It is its military.”
“What is the weakness of the U.S.? Its economic system is sick.”

“China should first deal with the United States in those weak issues. China needs to get closer to the U.S. until it is twisted together through economic cooperation and multilateral diplomacy. Just like two boxers fighting with each other, the weaker one always smartly and strategically approaches and entangles the one who has the longer arms and heavier fists. This kind of closeness will make the U.S. attitude toward China become diversified. Any extreme policies against China will be subjected to strong domestic resistance. China can get this done without problems.”
