Xinhua Proclaims 2008 Belongs to China

On the New Year’s Day of 2008, China’s state media Xinhua posted a slogan “2008, the World Belongs to China” in the headline at its website’s World Report section. The slogan was later changed to “2008, the World Expects that China Appears in Perfect Form.” On the other hand, the website also republished on the same page two articles that predict the downhill slide of the United States. One, quoted as “by Japanese media,” runs a title of “The American Era Is Ending.” The other one, quoted from Financial Times, is titled “The Era of U.S. Dollar’s Dominance Is No Longer Existent.”
