China Review News: The U.S. Sets Off and Puts Out War Fires around the World

On September 6, 2014, China Review News published an article accusing the United States of being an arsonist in global wars, titled, “The U.S. Sets off War Fires Globally and Has Planted Sino-Japanese Dispute War Seeds.” The article asserted that the United States has been the cause of all of the chaos in the Middle Eastern countries because it has “spread the democracy fire seeds” and supported the “Arab Spring” movement. According to the article, the United States is also responsible for the current “Ukraine crisis” because it has supported “color revolutions” including Ukraine’s “Orange Revolution.” In terms of the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands dispute between Japan and China and the South China Sea conflicts between China and Vietnam and the Philippines, “the United States appears to be putting out the fire but is actually fanning the flames.” 

The article concluded, “Through setting off fires and putting out fires, the United States hopes to highlight its presence, display the superiority of its own values, realize its own strategic interests, and make some money from arms sales.”
