PRC Media Opinion Monitor Weekly: What Right Does the USA Have to Criticize China?

I just heard about this weekly analysis of PRC views on U.S. – China relations and made a translation.  Discouraging stuff but that is the way things are going these days. The other guy is always to blame and with the US media taking more seriously “criticism and self-criticism” more thoroughly and in depth than Chinese media it is easy to get a one-sided view of things. Still, it is good to see what others are saying about you.  Like all good propaganda, it hurts to the extent that there is some truth to it.   To further promote one-sided news — and to protect China from ideological contamination perhaps —  mostly likely Chinese  红客 hongke (apparently from hong heike  红黑客)  patriotic hackers regularly down the Chinese language side of the U.S. – China Perceptions monitor website.  I substituted via Google Translate links to the original links to Chinese press and social media items to render them into machine-translated English that carries the idea albeit awkward or plain wrong in places. 

The Carter Center’s review of Chinese news media and social media opinion is part of the U.S. – China Perception Monitor‘s effort to build bridges for understanding. The translation I made below from the June 14, 2022 issue of their regular newsletter published on Chinese 美中故事汇 website. The main website 美中故事汇 [US – China Report]. Reading this website US-China Report through the somewhat-distorting lens of Google Translate’s machine translation is enlightening but should be done cautiously. Read for the gist. For example, the title that came up today through GT is “This American university president is not good” the correct translation would be something like “Being President of this U.S. University is a Tough Job”. the same goes for the other links through GT that I put to the links provided in the original Chinese text.

U.S media opinion is diverse and often highly critical of the government and leading politicians. China it can be said is somewhat different. The Carter Center’s U.S – China Perception Monitor has web sites in both English and Chinese so that people from both countries could understand opinion in the other’s country. The Chinese language page is regularly attacked, no doubt by Chinese official or unofficial patriotic hackers.

Good background for understanding PRC press opinion is He Qinglian’s The Fog of Censorship: Media Control in China which paints a detailed portrait of the workings of the Chinese censorship system.  Available as a free PDF format book download from the publisher, Human Rights in China .

While media control is strict, Chinese opinion is not monolithic. Some Chinese scholars occasionally do manage to publish their personal sometimes unorthodox views. These are sometimes speedily erased from the Internet within China. Preventing ideological contagion is a top priority of the Chinese Communist Party. Still while Party and public discipline has intensified considerably under General Secretary Xi Jinping, maintaining ideological discipline while building an ever-modernizing state in the old spirit of “reform and opening” is a difficult task even for Xi Jinping’s re-interpretation of Deng Xiaoping Theory for the New Era.

What Right Has the USA to Criticize China – and What’s Wrong with the USA? (II)

Weekly Compilation (June 6-12)

by 仝馨 June 14, 2022

[Editor’s Note] On May 26, Secretary of State Blinken released a speech on U.S. policy toward China, and on June 12, Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe met with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Security Dialogue. During this period, the U.S.-China relationship itself, as well as on sensitive issues such as Taiwan, the South China Sea, and regional security in the Asia-Pacific region, which all underlie the dynamics of U.S.-China relationship, The U.S. and China are each hold firmly to their own views and are at odds with each other. This is making the U.S.-China relationship increasingly tense and the way forward unclear. Where is the U.S.-China relationship headed? In the Chinese context, “relationship” is a form of interpersonal interaction that is influenced by perceptions and perceptions can influence decision-making. Therefore, as the U.S. and China “go head-to-head,” it is especially important to sort out and organize the perceptions of each country from top to bottom. Starting on May 29, the U.S.-China Storytellers will compile a brief weekly compilation of Chinese reports and commentaries on the United States from the Chinese government, official media, think tanks and private media, with the aim of exploring their perceptions of the “U.S.-China relationship” from the Chinese perspective. The purpose of this compilation is to explore the Chinese side’s perception of “U.S.-China relations” in order to better understand China’s relevant diplomatic statements and policies and to provide an entry point for improving U.S.-China relations. The overall title of this compilation is “What’s Up with America?” . This issue covers the period from June 6 to June 12 Eastern Time.

Government (Foreign Ministry)

At a regular press conference on June 6, Zhao Lijian criticized Anthony Blinken’s remarks in his China policy speech in which he accused China of engaging in “coercive diplomacy. Zhao said, “China has never engaged in any coercion, and is firmly opposed to coercion by other countries. One of the traditions of Chinese diplomacy is the equality of all nations, large and small. When China’s national sovereignty and national dignity are coerced and infringed upon, the measures taken by China are reasonable and legitimate countermeasures, defending the legitimate rights and interests of the country and upholding international justice and equity.” At the same time, Zhao Lijian also pointed out that the United States is the originator of coercive diplomacy, which is mainly manifested by the threat of force, political isolation, economic sanctions and technological blockade. In response to a reporter’s question about religious freedom in China, Zhao Lijian pointed out that “respecting and protecting religious freedom is the basic policy of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government in dealing with religion,” and that “the so-called ‘genocide’ in Xinjiang is an outright lie. This is an outright lie. Zhao pointed out that the U.S. has a long-standing problem of “racial discrimination” and a “policy of genocide against Indians,” and that the U.S. use of this as a pretext to interfere in China’s internal affairs “exposes its own hypocrisy and double standards. The U.S. has used this excuse to interfere in China’s internal affairs to “expose its hypocrisy and double standards. At the same time, Zhao Lijian said, “The U.S. side has repeatedly speculated on lies related to Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong, just to create excuses for smearing and suppressing China, as a tool to interfere in China’s internal affairs and split China.”

On June 7, in response to the Washington Post’s report that “China is secretly building a dedicated naval facility at Cambodia’s Yunyang naval base,” Zhao Lijian said that “the Yunyang base renovation aims to strengthen the Cambodian Navy’s ability to maintain maritime territorial integrity and combat maritime crime.” Zhao Lijian pointed out that “the U.S. side has ignored the position of the Cambodian side, repeatedly speculated maliciously, attacked and discredited, and even threatened and pressured Cambodia. This is typical of U.S. typical bullying.” Meanwhile, in response to a reporter’s question about gun violence in the United States, Zhao Lijian said, “The U.S. government should face up to its own poor human rights situation and governance deficit, instead of using human rights as an excuse to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries.”

On June 8, Zhao Lijian said at a regular press conference that “the U.S. government itself is the world’s largest purveyor of disinformation” and described the U.S. side as an “empire of lies” and “diplomacy of lies. He described the U.S. side as an “empire of lies” and “diplomacy of lies.

On June 9, in response to a reporter’s question, Zhao Lijian once again pointed out the “systematic human rights violations by the United States” and said “the U.S. side should face up to and effectively address its own violations of child labor rights and protect the legitimate rights and interests of its children.” Meanwhile, Zhao Lijian responded to the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, saying, “The U.S. arms sales to Taiwan seriously undermine China’s sovereignty and security interests, and seriously damage Sino-U.S. relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. The U.S. side should abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three U.S.-China joint communiqués and stop arms sales to Taiwan and U.S.-Taiwan military ties. China will continue to take resolute and strong measures to firmly defend its sovereignty and security interests.”

On June 10, Zhao Lijian commented on the Capitol Hill riot at a regular press conference, saying that this shocking event once again exposed the nature of the U.S. side’s political maneuvering pushing its own double standard of democracy. The attack on the Capitol is an “attempted coup” in the United States while they would call it a “color revolution” if it occurred in other countries. Zhao Lijian said, “The U.S. side should deeply reflect on its own ‘democratic deficit. Labeling, politicizing and weaponizing democracy will only harm people and themselves.” Meanwhile, in response to recent Russian revelations about U.S. biomilitary activities in Ukraine, Zhao Lijian said “the United States is the country with the most biomilitary activities in the world” and urged the U.S. side to clarify its compliance with the Biological Weapons Convention.

Official Media

China Military Website

China Military Net is the only news portal of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA), approved by the Central Military Commission of China, and is the online version of the PLA Daily, the organ of the Central Military Commission of the Communist Party of China.

On June 10, China Military Net released an article titled “Playing ‘arms sales to Taiwan’ card frequently, US is determined to be a ‘clown’ without principles”, which stated “The United States, for its own selfish interests, does one thing to one’s face and another behind the scenes. On the one hand, U.S. dignitaries swear not to support Taiwan independence and have no intention of clashing with China; on the other hand, they continue to sell arms to Taiwan. They are sending wrong signals to the separatist forces of Taiwan independence, and frequently create trouble in order to contain China’s progress toward reunification, power and The Chinese government has been selling weapons to Taiwan and has been making frequent misleading signals to the “Taiwan independence” separatist forces. All of this is the result of extreme selfishness and Cold War thinking.”

China Daily

On June 6, China Daily Bilingual News published a report entitled “Ideological Infiltration Standard Operating Procedure Exposed! What has this American organization done?” The article. The article alleged that the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) finances separatist forces, instigates color revolutions, and colludes with political groups with the aim of “subverting regimes in target countries in order to foster pro-U.S. regimes and transplant ‘American-style’ democratic systems to those countries. At the same time, the article says, “the National Endowment for Democracy concocts false information and ‘packages’ it as a so-called ‘academic authority’. It tries to hoodwink the world with a false face of ‘objectivity and impartiality’ in order to hype anti-government rhetoric.” As of June 12, the article had been read by 45,000 people, with 320 likes and 182 retweets. Only 1 selected message had passed the web censorship: the comment was “[The National Endowment for Democracy] does everything but good things.”

Xinhua News Agency

On June 8, Xinhua News Agency published an article titled “‘The USA is in a Bad Mood’! Poll shows 80% of Americans pessimistic about economic outlook,” the report said. According to the report, “The survey found that Americans are now in a bad mood and their dissatisfaction with the economy has reached its highest level in recent years. This pessimism is not only about the current economy, but also includes doubts about the U.S. political system, its global leadership position and its ability to help most people achieve the American dream. Some 83 percent of respondents believe the economy is in poor or not-too-good shape. This is the highest level of dissatisfaction in a poll conducted by the National Opinion Research Center since 1972.”

On June 9, Xinhua News Agency published an international commentary titled “The U.S. is the Dangerous One in China-U.S. Relations – One of a Series of Comments on U.S. Policy Toward China.” According to the commentary, “The recent U.S. speech on China policy spreads false information and discredits China’s domestic and foreign policies. It also blamed China for the problems in Sino-U.S. relations, and made great efforts to exaggerate the so-called “China threat”. This “tall tale” is a complete reversal of black and white. The U.S. is the one who caused the difficulties in Sino-U.S. relations, both in terms of history and the truth.” The commentary also said, “The United States has wrongly positioned China as a “strategic competitor. In fact, “competition” is just a synonym for “containment.” “The U.S. is smearing, blocking and suppressing China, seriously damaging China’s legitimate interests. From attacking the leadership of the Communist Party of China to smearing the human rights situation in China…the U.S. has engaged in an ideological struggle that has challenged China’s political system, undermined China’s territorial and sovereign integrity, and harmed China’s development interests, which has greatly damaged the atmosphere of U.S.-China relations and created huge obstacles to the development of U.S.-China relations. The commentary noted that “in Sino-U.S. relations, the United States has been destroying the foundations of the relationship, attacking China and injecting negative energy. In contrast, in the face of the U.S. aggressiveness, the Chinese side has been exercising restraint and trying to manage differences from the perspective of maintaining the overall situation of China-U.S. relations, conveying positive energy and playing a constructive role”. The commentary concluded, “Great power competition is not in keeping with the spirit of the times, seeing everything as a zero-sum game is not the right choice. Sino-US relations cannot get any worse. The U.S. side must correct its strategic perceptions, escape the logic of competition, put an end to its bad ways that jeopardize the relationship between the two countries, and soon come to the right choice for the benefit of China and the U.S..”

On June 12, Xinhua News Agency published an international commentary titled “Bleak End to Summit of the Americas Highlights Waning U.S. influence“. The article said, “The U.S. hegemonic performance at the summit was widely criticized by countries in Latin America, and the meeting became the least attended summit since its creation. More and more Latin American countries are saying “no” to the U.S., highlighting the diminishing influence of the U.S. in Latin America and globally, and the unpopularity of hegemony.” The commentary repeatedly describes “the hypocritical nature of American-style democracy,” “the double standards of American-style human rights,” and “the hegemonic nature of the United States,” and points out that “cooperation and win-win cooperation are the trend of the times. Cooperation and win-win situations is the trend of the times, but the U.S. is going against the path and is doomed to end up with no help.”

On the same day, Xinhua News Agency published another international commentary entitled “The U.S. is the Destroyer of the International Order – the fourth in a series of commentaries on U.S. policy toward China,” saying, “Some U.S. politicians are suffering from a ‘cognitive disorder’ called ‘projection effect’. The U.S. recently said in a speech on China policy that China poses the ‘most serious long-term challenge’ to the international order and that the U.S. must defend and reform the ‘rules-based international order’. These remarks are typical of the self-serving nature of the so-called ‘most serious challenge to the international order’, which is not another country, but the United States itself.” According to the commentary, “the United States is the biggest source of chaos in the world today,” “the United States is the biggest destructive force of international rules,” “the United States is engaged in ‘coercive diplomacy’ ‘professional'” “the United States has been reduced to a ‘rogue superpower'” “the international community has suffered for a long time “.

The four “series of comments on U.S. policy toward China” released by Xinhua News Agency are as follows.

1) The U.S. is the one endangering Sino-U.S. relations – one of a series of comments on U.S. policy toward China (June 9)

2) The U.S. is the Destroyer of Peace in the Taiwan Strait – Second in a series of commentaries on U.S. policy toward China (June 10)

3) The U.S. is the Trampler of Democracy and Human Rights – Commentary No. 3 in the Series on U.S. Policy Toward China (June 11)

4) The U.S. is the Destroyer of International Order – Commentary No. 4 in the Series on U.S. Policy Toward China (June 12)

Guangming Daily

On June 6, Guangming Daily published an article titled “The Appearance and True Face of Contemporary American Human Rights Culture“. The article said, “From the perspective of human rights, the secular-oriented Democratic Party advocates a left-wing liberal view of human rights, while the religiously devout Republican Party promotes a right-wing liberal view of human rights, making the protection of human rights in the United States increasingly fragmented and divided. From the perspective of human rights practice, the U.S. is experiencing serious human rights problems such as out-of-control epidemics, political disorder, racial conflicts and social tearing at home; externally, it adopts policy arrangements such as trade protection, power politics, cultural erasure and xenophobia, insists on instrumentalizing and strategizing human rights issues, and intensifies its ideological attacks on China, making human rights a pretext for maintaining U.S. hegemony, interfering in other countries’ domestic affairs and undermining international order and excuse.” The article outlines the “truth about the U.S. view of human rights” with four “isms,” namely “extreme individualism,” “hypocritical egalitarianism “unilateral universalism,” and “paranoid messianism.

People’s Daily

On June 8, People’s Daily International published an article titled “Counting U.S. Human Rights Deficit, People’s Daily Published Eight Articles to Awaken the Oblivious From Their Slumber”. The article briefly reviewed the main contents of the series of “wakeup bell” articles launched by People’s Daily from May 16 to June 7, “The U.S. should deeply review its own human rights deficit”, and counted the “failure to fight epidemics” and “gun violence” in the U.S. “, “gun violence”, “social injustice exacerbated by the rich-poor divide”, “rough treatment of illegal immigrants”, and “racism”. The “eight major crimes” such as “collusion between power and capital in private prisons,” “forced labor,” and “torture in ‘secret prisons’ overseas “It also says that the report “profoundly exposes the human rights violations left by the United States at home and abroad, and profoundly reveals that American-style democracy cannot protect the human rights of the American people. The American hegemony has made the U.S. a negative example of human rights abuses in the world.” The article stresses that on the issue of human rights, what the U.S. needs to do is to “correct the wrongs that lie in its own heart, meditate upon its faults and change its own behavior” instead of “politicizing human rights issues and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries at every turn on the pretext of human rights.”

The eight articles:

(1) More than a million deaths from COVID-19, a “national tragedy” that should not have happened (May 16)

(2) Impotent to control guns, a decline hard to reverse as the sound of gunfire shatters the illusion of human rights in the United States (May 17)

(3) The polarization between the rich and the poor aggravates social injustice, and the human rights deficit can only grow (May 20)

(4) Rough treatment of illegal immigrants exposes the hypocrisy of the “defenders of human rights” (May 24)

(5) Minorities “can’t breathe” and racism permeates the U.S. political system (May 25)

(6) Private prisons breed human rights tragedy as power and capital are allowed to collude (May 31)

(7) Failure to act in the face of “modern slavery” highlights the lack of government responsibility (June 2)

(8) “Black prisons” torture indiscriminately, and the U.S. tramples on human rights by wreaking havoc with the rule of law (June 7)

Global Times

On June 7, the Global Times published a commentary entitled “Wu Xinbo: What Happens to the International System in the Wake of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict?” According to the commentary, one of the main goals of Russia’s special military operation against Ukraine is to end U.S. hegemony in Europe, end the U.S.-dominated world order, and promote the emergence of an equal international society.

On June 12, the Global Times published an editorial titled “Maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait’, the U.S. has No Right to Say That it is Doing This“. According to the editorial, “The United States, the real destroyer of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, is trying to intervene more deeply in Taiwan Strait affairs under the guise of “maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.” The editorial added, “The historical trend of cross-strait reunification is unstoppable, and the one-China principle is the needle of the sea that maintains peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. In fact, if the United States had not played the “Taiwan card” and attempted to hollow out the one-China principle, where would the DPP authorities have found the courage to refuse to recognize the 1992 Consensus?” Finally, the editorial said, “The U.S. side should understand that the Chinese people are not to be messed with, and if they are messed with, it is not a good thing to do! If you want to “control China with Taiwan”, you are playing with fire, and those who play with fire will burn themselves.”

Think Tanks

Chongyang Institute

On June 10, Wang Wen, executive director of the Chongyang Institute of Finance at Renmin University of China, published an English article in the South China Morning Post titled “The US is so Bent on Containing China’s Rise, that it has Ignored its own Decline.” On June 11, NPC Chongyang translated the article into Chinese and posted it on its official WeChat public page, titled “South China Morning Post denounces US ‘foolishness’: curbing China but ignoring its own decline”. The article said, “There is a serious and misplaced political correctness in both the US and China. It is now almost taboo in both countries to say nice things about each other. Complementing each other’s strengths and making progress together will certainly go a long way toward easing tensions between the two countries.” The article refuted the “U.S. perceived ‘China threat theory'”, saying it runs “counter to empirical evidence and the U.S. side is deeply trapped in rigid ideological thinking”, and said “China will not accept the self-righteous accusations made by the United States against Tibet, Xinjiang and Hong Kong. At the same time, the article calls on the U.S. side to “look internally” and address its own gun violence and urban violence problems.

Non-government Media

Today’s Headlines

On June 7, Today’s Headlines published a story titled “Liu Qingbin: Renowned Chinese economist Chen Wenling recently declared that he must unify Taiwan and seize TSMC”. Another major Chinese Internet portal also published a report titled “Economist Chen Wenling: We must get TSMC back, can’t let it run away to the U.S.”. On the same day, Singapore’s Chinese-language media, the Lianhe Zaobao, cited a Chinese media report and published a report titled “Mainland Chinese economist: Must get TSMC back“. According to the report, “According to the Observer, Chen Wenling, chief economist of the Center for International Economic Exchanges, a Chinese think tank, spoke about the current relationship between China and the U.S. at the China-U.S. Forum hosted by the NPC’s Chongyang Research Institute on May 30. In Chen Wenling’s view, China must get TSMC out of its hands as the U.S. and the West impose destructive sanctions on China like they did on Russia.” Chen Wenling added that “China must support Russia openly, reasonably and in every way possible.” As of June 12, related reports were taken down in Chinese media.

WeChat social media

On June 10, WeChat’s China-U.S. Focus reprinted an article by Huazhi Global Watch titled “The Crux of China-U.S. Relations” According to the article, the U.S. side has fallen into a “Thucydidesque” conjecture in Sino-U.S. relations, that is, “if China has the ability, it must challenge the existing international order, and if the U.S. wants to remain ‘number one’ in the world, it must make China its primary strategic opponent. If it can do that on its own, it will in the name of ‘competition’, the tactics of joint assault, and the narrative of ‘demonization’ to completely encircle and contain China until it is brought down, and the United States will be able to sit firmly as the world leader. The article suggests that the most urgent task in breaking the impasse in U.S.-China relations is to “follow President Xi Jinping’s approach of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation, and to put President Biden’s ‘four no’s and one no intention’ statement into practice. At the same time, under the directional control of the two heads of state, explore and promote concrete cooperation projects of common interest, and support and encourage civil and local exchanges and pragmatic exchanges.”

On June 11, the WeChat public website “Deep Sea Zone” published an article titled “His Words Don’t Match his Actions: Immediately After Meeting with the Chinese defense minister, U.S. Defense Secretary Austin played the ‘Taiwan card'”. The article said that on the one hand, the U.S. side once again made clear at the Shangri-La Dialogue that it “adheres to the ‘One China’ policy, does not support Taiwan independence, and does not seek conflict with China,” but on the other hand, it “tends to take a negative position” on the Taiwan issue. The U.S. State Department website once removed the phrases “Taiwan is part of China” and “the United States does not support Taiwan’s independence,” and approved a $120 million arms sales program to Taiwan on June 8 before the opening of the Shangri-La meeting. The article said that Lloyd Austin’s comments on the China issue were not in line with the U.S. policy. According to the article, Austin “glossed over” questions from China expert Ge Laiei about Biden’s Taiwan-related statements and what the U.S. would do about them, saying “Biden’s earlier slip of the tongue that he “will defend Taiwan militarily” may reflect the White House’s current preference. the White House’s current inclination.”

On June 12, WeChat’s “Powerful New View” published an article titled “Chinese experts: Don’t have illusions about the U.S., we must regain Taiwan! TSMC must be in China’s hands”. According to the commentary, “the West is strengthening the construction of a ‘technology alliance’ for the semiconductor supply chain, with the goal of forming a small circle of semiconductor technology in favor of the Western group” “Since 2020, the White House wants to control of the global semiconductor industry is clear”. According to the commentary, the U.S. “technology alliance” is a strategic alliance whose strategic goals include “establishing the leadership of the U.S. semiconductor manufacturing industry” and “escalating the joint blockade of semiconductor exports to China. “. The commentary said, “Since the head-to-head competition with China has already made the heads in Washington feel ‘stressed’, it is also part of the Anglo-Saxon ‘tradition’ to “if the straightforward way does not work, then do things the evil under-handed way’.”

A Short Overview

First, from June 6 to June 12, Chinese reports and comments on the United States continued to be “indiscriminate” on all fronts and from multiple angles. “double standards,” “hypocrisy,” “double standards,” “undermining the international order,” “interfering in the internal affairs of other countries,” and “interfering in the internal affairs of other countries,” all of which are negative terms. In addition, Chinese media, while criticizing “U.S. ‘criticism’ of China,” mention the nastiness and corruption of U.S. domestic society. “The central government media, including Xinhua, CCTV, and People’s Daily, have written or republished current affairs commentaries and satirical articles exposing the “dark side” of the United States. Current affairs commentaries and satirical pictures have been written or republished to expose the “dark side” of the United States, criticizing topics such as the ineffective fight against epidemics, economic crisis, social injustice, gun violence, and war tendencies. In the past week, the official media devoted to negative social news in the U.S., such as How to End the tragedy of “epidemic orphans” in the U.S., Shooting incident in Maryland killed three people and injured one, As Inflation “fever” the U.S. Increases, the Fed “Walks the Tightrope” . However on Chinese media, there is very little news about society in other countries and no coverage of negative news.

Second, Chinese media prefer to use Chinese cultural imagery, jargon and popular Internet words to explain in large text the complex “conspiracy” and “wolf’s ambition” of the U.S. against China at this stage. For example, “pseudo-Daoist”, “projection effect“, “empire of lies“, and “blaming others for its problems“. The catchy and easy-to-understand words allow the Chinese public to form a simple general understanding of U.S. behavior, while the twisted and vivid “plots” can increase reader interest and so help further disseminate the text.

Third, scholars continue to have a negative view of the U.S., mostly discussing the current state of deterioration in U.S.-China relations and tracing the root causes, while few give constructive advice on improving U.S.-China relations. Just as the U.S. believes that China has demonstrated its ambition to change the existing international order and establish a regional hegemony centered on China, destroying the original “balance” of U.S.-China relations, China blames the deterioration of U.S.-China relations on the U.S. Cold War mentality and the shattering of its illusion of unipolarism. China says that the U.S. is trying to suppress China’s rise and develop the ability to oppose it. China’s view of U.S.-China relations is characterized by a distinct realism. Many articles speak of possible cooperation, but only if the U.S. “recognizes and corrects its mistakes” and makes a “cease-fire decision”, such as not interfering in border-related, Hong Kong-related, or Taiwan-related issues. However, at this stage, both the U.S. and China have made saber-rattling statements on and made initiatives related to the Taiwan Strait issue, and the road to cooperation is obviously still full of obstacles to “making a cease-fire” and shake hands.
