Xinhua: The Compliment of China Outshining Has a Hidden Evil Intention

Xinhua published a commentary article on June 20 to “warn” Chinese that the western media report naming China as the sole country prospering in the middle of world financial crisis is a “compliment” with an evil intention. The article says, “In recent years, various bizarre comments on China have appeared now and then in western media, for example, “China Threat,” “China Being Responsible,” and so on. Most recently, a new name of “China Outshining” (in the global financial crisis) came up in the western media.” “The so-called ‘China Outshining’ is to say that, in the middle of the world financial crisis, western countries are burdened with economic difficulties, while China (has moved) all the way up, is gaining the most (from the crisis), and has come out as the biggest winner.” The purpose of the compliment is to “…harm China. Their intention is to pressure China to take on disproportionate international responsibilities beyond (China’s) ability, and damage China’s relationship with other countries, particularly the developing countries.”

Lack of Core Technology Hinders China’s Dream to Become an Auto Giant

Although China’s annual car sales topped the world at 13.5 million in 2009, it is too early to celebrate.
The real winners, according to the author, are actually foreign companies.

China’s automotive industry depends heavily on foreign companies to supply parts. Especailly regarding auto electronics, engines, and transmissions, foreign company’s market share is 90% .

China has yet to have its own brand. Its advantage in automotive production is low cost laborers. he profit margin is quite low. Without its own brands, China’s astronomical auto sales volume can only help others.

Who Pushed Obama to Sell Missiles to Taiwan?

After the U.S. government approved the Lockheed-Martin sale of Patriotic air defense missiles to Taiwan, China denounced the deal. Obama’s “face change” two months after his successful China visit was due to a joint lobbying by the government, the Congress, the Pentagon and defense contractors.

Several key players were named as key promoters for the missile sale: Lockheed-Martin CEO Robert Stevens, Senator John McCain, Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn, U.S.-Taiwan Business Council President Rupert Hmmond-Chambers and Taiwanese businessman Li Hua-Der.

Xingjiang Needle Stabbing Caused by Failed Ethnic Policy

Hong Kong based analyst Li Yi believes China’s policy for ethnic minorities is the root cause of violence in Xinjiang, including the most recent needle stabbing of hundreds.

The CCP’s preferential treatment of ethnic minorities provides a venue for expressing resentment by the Uyhgurs, who dislike the government’s political suppression and economic exploitation.

The Han Chinese feel they are the victims of reverse discrimination. They often feel unprotected by the government during ethnic conflicts.

Many people realized that the botched policy is the culprit and call for the ousting of Xinjiang’s hardline Party secretary, Wang Lequan.
