Guangming: 1.3 Billion Chinese Despise Obama

Recently, many major Chinese websites widely republished an article against Obama. The article was originally published on the official site of Guangming Daily, a Beijing City based national newspaper. The author, Fu Yi, claimed “Nobel Prize winner Obama” finally revealed his “scary pseudo-peace” face. The article mentioned the arms sale to Taiwan, which is “opposed by both sides of the Strait” as well as the “splitter and terrorist” Dalai Lama’s visit to the White House. As the people of a rising world power, the author believes, 1.3 billion Chinese are not “easily threatened” – they all “despise” Obama.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs Commented on the Dalai Lama’s Visit

The Speaker of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ma Zhaoxu, commented on the Dalai Lama’s visit to US: The United States disregarded China’s repeated solemn representations on Dalai’s visit to the White House. President Obama met him in the Map Room on February 18. The move of the US government was severely contrary to the basic norms governing international relations, violated the three Sino-US joint communiqués as well as the principles set in the Sino-US Joint Statement, broke the repeated US promise of recognition of Tibet being part of China and the promise of not supporting Tibetan independence. China is hereby expressing strong dissatisfaction and opposition. China demands the United States take the Chinese position seriously and take immediate action to eliminate the pernicious impact. The United States should stop conniving with the Tibetan anti-China splitters, stop interfering in China’s internal affairs and take concrete steps to maintain the healthy development of the Sino-US relationship.

Washington and Wall Street: Tom and Jerry in Reality

Xinhua recently published an article by its Washington DC reporter on the relationship between Wall Street and Washington. Wall Street made a fortune in 2009 and the average income increased by 18%. The Obama administration is feeling really uneasy about this and his approval rate is sliding. Although the Wall Street “fat cats” are responding with lowered cash payments to their employees, the Whitehouse is actually the “Tom” in the cat-mouse game. The article pointed out that there is no fundamental conflict of interest between the two. “Jerry” is largely working with “Tom” for a PR show.

Do not Hope the US will Stop the Arms Sale to Taiwan

The International Herald Leader published an article two weeks ago discussing the recent US Arms sale to Taiwan. The article suggests that the US does not believe China will take a stronger stand this time, but the author disagrees. The article quoted Chinese Navy major general Yang Yi, sayng that he believes China will never be a world power if the US is not punished this time. Meng Xiangqing, professor from the Institute for National Strategic Studies at National Defense University, thinks it is indeed different this time because China threatened sanctions for the first time. The professor also suggested, “Ten years later, when fundamental Chinese military power catches up to the States level, that will be the time for a showdown.”

Three Key Technologies of the US Air Force in the Next Two Decades

Xinhua recently republished an article by Chinese Youth, which referred to a report by the US magazine Air Force Times. The article suggested that the US Air Force is focusing on three key technologies: (1) Customizable systems; (2) Mini unmanned aircraft; and (3) “Super” supersonic planes or missiles (the Boeing X-51 Project). Also mentioned in the article were the four primary imaginary enemies: China, Islamic separatists, “loser countries” and Russia. The article stated that China will have the number one GDP by 2030. Hence the order makes sense.
