Unwise, irresponsible for Biden to take personal grievances toward Putin to national level
Published: Mar 28, 2022 09:59 PM


After US President Joe Biden said on Saturday that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power,” both the White House and some US lawmakers hurried to put out the fire set by their president. But no matter how well Biden’s propaganda machine works, it cannot downplay the fact that such a blunt statement at a sensitive time could further inflame the situation. This was unwise and irresponsible, reflecting a dire problem within US policy-making: some politicians are taking their personal grievances to the national level.The US president’s remarks imply the policies of Washington. When there is ongoing crisis in Ukraine, they could lead to very dangerous consequences. US Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, who is the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Biden’s line was a “horrendous gaffe,” urging Biden to “stay on script.” Moreover, Biden said Putin “is a butcher” after visiting with refugees in Warsaw, Poland on Saturday. Previously, Biden called Putin a “war criminal” and “killer.” Lü Xiang, a research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Biden’s move to take his personal grievances to national level is risky.

Biden’s “off-script” remarks were the reflection of his frustrations and anguish with the situation.

According to Lü, Putin can be seen as a thorn to Biden. It was Biden who played an important role as a foreign policy maker in Ukraine issues in 2014, but he didn’t achieve exactly what the US wanted. Now, the Ukraine crisis has again become a problem for Biden. “Now the US is in deep distress. It looks like the US has dominated public opinion, but in the battlefields it is Russia taking an upper hand. Besides, the US wishes to redeploy its strength to the Indo-Pacific, but it has to refocus on Europe politically and militarily. This isn’t what Biden wants,” Lü said.

The latest Grinnell College National Poll on March 23 showed a drop in Biden’s job approval to 34 percent, with 52 percent of Americans disapproving of his job performance and 14 percent being unsure. In contrast to Biden’s slide in approval ratings, Putin has seen his remain strong – an early March poll by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center revealed Russian public’s confidence in Putin rose to 79.6 percent. 

“The US has made eye-catching gestures internationally, but ordinary Americans don’t buy it,” Lü noted. Americans have just escaped from a quagmire that trapped them for 20 years, and they are now facing another one – one that could be even worse. 

The American people have to withstand soaring inflation and skyrocketing energy prices, but their government prefers to spend money on “supporting” Ukraine rather than on solving domestic problems. 

Biden’s hostility cannot be reversed: It seems that his ultimate goal is to topple another nuclear power and overthrow its leadership. Many are seriously worrying that the Ukraine crisis will get out of control and escalate into a nuclear war, given that both sides are becoming more ferocious. 

“Many fights start from quarrel. There can be a number of policy implications behind a name-calling remark, and the targeted party may want to be proactive to take an upper hand,” Lü said. 

After the Cold War, the US has fought many wars with countries incapable of air defense. However, Russia is not only capable of air defense; it also has the power to penetrate US’ air defense, Lü noted.

Will it be a shame for American politics if repeated “slips of the tongue” by the country’s top leader trigger a crisis that the American people cannot afford?

Washington unqualified to draw redlines for others: Global Times editorial

US President Joe Biden wrapped up his visit to Europe on Saturday. During his four-day trip, Biden engaged in intensive diplomatic events focusing on the Ukraine crisis. He attended summits of NATO, G7 and EU. However, after so many summits with the aim to strengthen the role of so-called trans-Atlantic alliance, no actual measure was put forward to promote peace and talks – not even a public statement.

In contrast, Biden motivated the enhancement of sanctions on Russia, striving to prevent his European allies from falling back on this issue. Besides, the joint statement, which demonstrates Washington’s stance, even took an aim at China, demanding that China cooperate with the West’s sanctions. US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan previously set redlines. He told reporters that China and every significant economy should not take advantage of business opportunities created by sanctions, help Moscow evade export controls or process its banned financial transactions.

As the initiator of the Ukraine crisis, the US is trying to push the entire world into its huge trap. The US has lured and threatened developing countries including China, attempting to make the international community share the responsibilities and consequences of the crisis. Nevertheless, it must be pointed out that no other country is obligated to pay the price for the crisis created by the US and that Washington is not qualified to set redlines for other countries.

During Biden’s trip to Europe, the US and the EU signed a historic agreement on?liquefied?natural gas, in a bid to reduce?Europe’s?reliance on Russian energy. But many Western media expressed pessimism about the deal because the US doesn’t have enough capacity to export more gas, so the deal will be largely symbolic. This is the strategic risk Washington is happy to take: It has only the ambition to create chaos but has no intent to clean up the mess. From Afghanistan to Iraq and Syria, the US has left the world in too many messes.

After the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the US has continued to escalate sanctions against Russia and coerce the world to choose sides, adding to the hardship of global economic recovery and causing undue damage to the livelihoods of all countries. People see that the US is turning into a deformed giant, with an arm of sanctions or even war used to suppress others becoming exceptionally developed, and the arm of peace and development becoming greatly atrophied and degenerated. This has led Washington to claim to oppose war while waging war on all fronts, and to claim to maintain peace while wantonly destroying it.

In the 1990s, former US diplomat George Kennan, known as the “father of containment,” warned that “expanding NATO would be the most fatal error of American policy in the entire post-cold-war era.” If NATO’s expansion is the decision of politicians with a penchant for zero-sum games, then Washington has to face the reality that the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Although the US has a muscular arm to suppress others, it is still facing an increasingly stretched dilemma, and it cannot weave a network of sanctions against Russia alone. It needs the firm support of its allies, as well as the broad cooperation of non-Western countries.

That’s why warning China not to support Russia has become a deliberately prominent issue in Washington, while pulling in its allies to reinforce sanctions against Russia. Thus, it continues to suppress China, which it considers its strategic rival, while expecting China to cooperate with it in sanctioning Russia. Of course, there is a deeper reason for this: The US would rather have a two-front war against China and Russia, lest China be given a strategic respite. There are waves of smears against China from the US to prevent it from staying out of this trouble.

The US has long sought enemies around the globe, and even if there is none, it creates one. We might remind Washington that the established?powers are often not defeated by emerging powers, but dragged down by the cost of maintaining hegemony. Recently, the US wanted to kick Russia out of the G20, but several countries have clearly expressed their opposition. Today’s world is no longer in the era when a few countries like the US can hoodwink the public; most countries will not join the “self-mutilating game” by helping the US maintain its hegemony.

Instability brewer: Behind every war and turmoil in the world is shadow of the Star-Spangled Banner
Published: Mar 27, 2022 09:56 PM


Editor’s Note:“This man cannot remain in power.” US President Joe Biden made this remark about Russian leader Vladimir Putin on March 26, 2022 during a speech he made in Poland. Though the White House had tried to explain away the utterance for the president, the real purpose of Washington was ultimately exposed: To bring down Russia, overthrow the Russian government, and maintain US hegemony.The Russia-Ukraine conflict is just the latest of many examples in which the US seeks its own geopolitical interests by intensifying conflicts in other countries or directly launching wars.

In order to seek global hegemony, the US has used many resources including political, economic, cultural, educational, and the manipulation of public opinion platforms, and has created turmoil around the world under the banner of “human rights,” “democracy,” and “freedom.”

During the past 240-plus years after it declared independence on July 4th, 1776, the US was not involved in any war for merely less than 20 years, according to a report released by the China Society for Human Rights Studies in May 2021. Incomplete statistics showed that from the end of WWII in 1945 to 2001, among the 248 armed conflicts that occurred in 153 regions globally, 201 were initiated by the US, accounting for 81 percent of the total number.

These wars have devastated the invaded countries, killed millions of civilians, and displaced tens of millions. Looking back at the history of US aggression and intervention, we can see that Washington is the driving force behind the turmoil and the source of the chaos in the world.

From provoking wars around the world to leading NATO’s eastward expansion, from imposing sanctions on “disobedient countries” to coercing other nations to pick sides, the US has acted like a “Cold War schemer,” and an “vampire” who creates “enemies” and make fortunes from pyres of war.

The Global Times is publishing a series of stories and cartoons to unveil how the US, in its superpower status, has been creating trouble in the world one crisis after another. This is the second installment.

Is America belligerent?

Is America belligerent? From a big data perspective, the answer is yes. Since World War II, almost every US president has had a “war of his own.”

In his speech to troops of the US Third Army in 1944, General George S. Patton had made the point very clear. “Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, the big-league ball players, and the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time.”

“That’s why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans. Battle is the most significant competition in which a man can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base,” the general said.

So why is the US always “willing to use troops” after World War II? The answer is that the history of the founding of the US and its expansion is through wars. From the very beginning, productivity and influence under coercive violence seemed to be a creed for the Americans.

After World War II, the US competed with the Soviet Union for global hegemony in the Cold War. Afterward, a wave of interventionism, wars, subversion, and infiltration were proliferated with only one end goal -to maintain its global hegemony.

For more than 200 years, the US has kept waging and participating in wars, and wars have also shaped the US.

Fight for hegemony

“The strategic intention of the US is to pursue hegemony. In other words, the US wants to seek absolute dominance. The US guides its behavior with a peculiar security concept, that is, the more the world outside the US resembles it, the more secure the American political elites feel,” Li Haidong, a professor from the Institute of International Relations at the China Foreign Affairs University, told the Global Times.

“The actual action derived from this concept is the endless expansion of the US around the world, and Americanization wherever it expands,” he said.

“Warfare has become an American tradition. Without wars, this country would not know what to do with itself. War is a label that defines American identity,” he said.

Taking advantage of internal conflicts in other countries is one of the most common ways that the US incites wars, said international relations experts and military observers. And the Korean War (1950-53) is a typical case to support this finding, they said.

In 1945, before Japan’s surrender, the US and the Soviet Union decided to carve up the Korean Peninsula into two occupation zones. The dividing line was widely known as the 38th Parallel. In this way, the originally united country of Korea was divided into two halves by the hegemony of the great powers.

After the defeat of Japan, the US and the Soviet Union quickly moved toward the “Cold War” period due to the need for an ideology and sphere of influence competition, and the fierce struggle for control of the Korean Peninsula became the most typical manifestation of the confrontation between the two camps.

In 1950, the Korean War broke out. The US quickly intervened and brought the war to the Yalu River. Today, when we look back on this history, it is not difficult to find that both North and South Korea were not willing to be divided by hegemony powers, which was the internal cause of the Korean War. US intervention was the important external cause of the war. Experts said that the history of the Korean War is the evil history of US intervention in other countries and the killing of civilians.

Rubble and trouble

Excluding those who are in a different camp is one of the drives for the US to provoke wars around the world. The former socialist Balkan state Yugoslavia was thus “dismembered” in US’ seek of hegemony.

Yugoslavia was once a target to be courted by the US-led West in the early years of the Cold War.

Given Yugoslavia’s geopolitical conflict with the Soviet Union and personal discord between Josip Broz (commonly known as Tito) and Joseph Stalin, the US saw an opportunity. As a result, the US gave Yugoslavia a large amount of economic aid, and some other Western countries opened the door to trade with Yugoslavia.
Yet America’s “gift” had a hefty price tag. As the prowess of Soviet Union waned in the 1980s, so too did Yugoslavia’s importance in America’s global strategy. Washington’s attitude toward a country that could no longer serve as a “strategic buffer” rapidly changed. What’s more, Yugoslavia’s socialist national policy and its location on the crossroads of the Eastern Mediterranean made it even more of a thorn in the eyes of the US.

Under a series of American actions including economic containment, internal ethnic conflicts incitement, and an ideological war, Yugoslavia fell into a state of division and civil war in the early 1990s. In the name of “human rights,” the US advocated for separatism of the republics, which made the situation worse.

In 1999, US-led NATO launched bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. During the 78-day military attack, 2,500 civilians were killed, among whom 79 were children, according to the Serbian government. The Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia was bombed and three Chinese journalists were killed, which has become an unremitting pain for Chinese people to this day.

Latin America – ‘Too close to the US, too far away from God’

The US has not only stirred up wars in East Asia, Middle East, and Europe, but has also done so in Latin America, which is viewed as its back yard. In fact, Washington has a history of always trying to take “absolute advantage” in Latin America. It would instigate a military coup or directly launch a military invasion in a Latin American country if anti-US sentiments develop there.

In 1983, a civil unrest broken out on the island of Grenada. Former deputy prime minister and pro-Soviet Union politician Bernard Coard became the country’s new leader. The US certainly could not put up with this.

US troops landed in Grenada in October 1983 and captured the airport in the capital St. George’s. In less than 10 days the US seized total control of Grenada, a country with a population of 110,000. They did not withdraw until a new pro-US government was established with Washington’s “assistance”.

Analysts deemed the US’ invasion of Grenada was in fact meant to be a show of strength to the Soviets and deter Cuba and Nicaragua where anti-US sentiment was growing.

Give peace a chance

During the Serbian football club Red Star’s game halftime at the Rajko Mitic stadium on March 18, 2022 Serbian fans raised huge banners listing US-led NATO military interventions in past decades.

One of the banners displayed the Beatles songwriter John Lennon’s anti-war song: “All we are saying is give peace a chance.”
Five other banners listed in smaller characters the countries that the US and NATO have directly or indirectly been involved in with regards to invasions. For more than 60 years, behind every war and turmoil in the world, one can almost always be assured to find the star spangled banner.

Although the US always tried to defend its invasions with flimsy excuses, the history has proven its bellicosity. A warfare-addicted US has become the biggest threat to global peace and stability.

One of the characteristics of the US launching a war is to weave a set of discourse, such as democracy and to create a public opinion atmosphere. “We have seen too many of these. This high hat and moralistic gaslighting cannot hide the nature of the US’ foreign aggression, belligerence, crisis creation, and chaos,” Li said.

Next Up:

In the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, arms dealers made a fortune in war and financial predators took the opportunity to take advantage of the situation. Moreover, in the US, there is a group of “politicians, experts, or think tanks” who live by creating imaginary enemies and attacking Russia or China. These warmongers are “vampires” feeding on the bloody turbulence in other countries. In our next story, we will reveal the nature of the US’ national military-industrial complex.

Can ‘brain-dead’ NATO prolong its life by exploiting China?: Global Times editorial
Published: Mar 25, 2022 01:25 AM


NATO held an emergency summit on Thursday to discuss the Ukraine situation and other issues. Just one day earlier, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that Western leaders will “spend a significant amount of time talking about China.” He framed China as providing Russia with political support “by spreading blatant lies and disinformation,” and “allies are concerned that China could provide material support for the Russian invasion.” These announcements are basically consistent with the summit statement on Thursday. When peddling the lies which have confused black and white, Stoltenberg’s face skin might be thicker than the Berlin Wall. Is NATO, the biggest promoter of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, in any way qualified to point a finger at China, which has been facilitating dialogue for peace from the very beginning?China’s stance on the Ukraine crisis is very clear – starting from the merits of the matter itself, making independent judgment, upholding international laws and the universally recognized basic norms of international relations, insisting on acting in accordance with the UN Charter, and advocating a common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable concept of security. Compared with the US and NATO, which have been constantly handing knives to the conflict zone, China’s attitude is truly responsible. Stoltenberg has kept saying that he hoped to “find a peaceful way to end this war as soon as possible,” yet revealed at the same press conference that there would be “major increases to NATO’s forces in the eastern part of the Alliance.” After the summit, NATO announced that it will provide more military support to Ukraine and that member countries will invest more in defense. Is that NATO’s understanding of “a peaceful way?” The fact is that NATO needs the war more than anyone else. After the Cold War, the dawn of peace that once appeared in Europe turned into an existential crisis for it. NATO, which should have ended long ago, is relying on the fear on the European continent and deliberately creating crises to prolong its life. 

In the face of the Ukraine crisis, most major countries, including India, Brazil, as well as most countries in Africa, Southeast Asia and other regions, have taken an objective and fair position. These countries have almost two-thirds of the world’s population. Their attitude is the mainstream posture of the international community.

But why did Stoltenberg mention only China? Simple as it is: NATO, which has long been considered “brain dead,” needs to find a life-saving ventilator, as relying on the oxygen brought about by creating a “Russophobia” is increasingly insufficient. It fears it will expire at any time without being “intubated.”

This is not the first time that NATO intended to exploit China. Stoltenberg declared last year that NATO would expand its focus to counter a rising China. As a product of the Cold War, NATO pursued exclusive collective security, engaged in bloc politics and camp rivalry, and now it even reduced to a tool for the US to maintain hegemony. NATO repeatedly mentioned China recently, proving that it is nothing more than a machine for the implementation of the US’ global will, which disparages Europe as a whole and runs counter to its pursuit of independence and autonomy, as well as kidnaps Europe’s common security. 

Serbian football fans at a recent UEFA Europa League match in Belgrade held up banners listing US/NATO interventions in recent decades to countries including Guatemala, Cuba, Vietnam, Congo, Nicaragua, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria. It needs to be emphasized here that the Chinese will never forget May 9, 1999, when the US-led NATO brazenly attacked the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia with missiles, resulting in the death of three Chinese journalists and many injuries. NATO still owes a blood debt to the Chinese people!

As long as NATO exists, there will be no day of peace in Europe and in the world. Former CIA director David Petraeus proudly said that the Russia-Ukraine conflict “is to make NATO great again.” However, French President Emmanuel Macron said the conflict gave NATO an electric shock. But he refused to withdraw his “brain dead” comment. Granted, an emergency aid may boost NATO’s heartbeat for a while, but it will never cure the bloc’s severe illness. It would be only daydreaming to seek an elixir of life by manipulating China-related issues.

“The evolution of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will prove Washington’s nature as a warmonger.”


Washington benefits from Ukraine’s misfortune: Global Times editorial
Published: Mar 24, 2022 12:04 AM


By March 24, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has lasted one month. All peace-loving people in the world hope that this bloody conflict, which could have been avoided, could end soon. However, the US and NATO, which hold the key to resolving the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, have made no practical moves to end the war. Instead, they are still intensifying contradictions and escalating confrontation, creating obstacles for negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden left for Europe on Wednesday, where he will attend the NATO summit, the G7 summit and the European Council meeting. According to media reports, Biden will work with European allies to coordinate next-stage military assistance to Ukraine and will announce a new round of sanctions against Russia. On the one-month mark of the conflict, Biden carried out his intensive diplomatic offensive in Europe, yet nothing on his agenda is not about adding fuel to the fire. When touching upon Biden’s European trip, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that there will be hard days ahead in Ukraine as “this war will not end easily or rapidly.” This is not so much a “judgment” by the US, but a carefully guided direction by Washington. Washington wishes the war will not end, so it can maximize the use of the conflict to gain geopolitical value from it. In other words, it is seeking to benefit from Ukraine’s misfortune. Because of this, the US and Europe may seem to appear close, but their substantive differences are deepening. While Washington is obsessed with delaying Russia-Ukraine negotiations, Europe wants security and stability. There are emerging anti-war voices in Europe, and these voices include disapproval toward Washington’s arms delivery to Ukraine. More and more Europeans realize that blindly sending arms to Ukraine is heading toward the opposite direction of the security goals they pursue. In addition, the result of long-term extreme sanctions must be that the US gets rich, Europe pays the bill and Ukraine bleeds. Washington can’t hide these petty ideas. Also because of this, Biden has to “stabilize” Europe when it has wavering intentions. It is not difficult to imagine that Washington will pull out the “transatlantic friendship,” “democratic alliance,” and other small cards from its pockets and distribute them to friends as passes to the world VIP club, using the illusory “honor” to extract high “dues.” Washington also exerts strong pressure on neutral countries that “don’t join the club,” criticizing India for being “shaky” on one hand and  sensationalizing China’s “threat” to peace on the other. Isn’t this a typical mafia approach?As the saying goes, “It is up to the doer to undo the knot.” The Russia-Ukraine conflict is the result of the intensification of the conflict between the US and Russia, and the key to the problem lies in the hands of the US. If Washington really wants the “hard days” of the Ukrainian people not to continue, then why did it choose to “coordinate” with Europe to send weapons to Ukraine and sanction Russia, and refused to talk directly with Russia? The answer is clear: the US does not want real peace talks. That’s why one can see such an absurd scenario: despite knowing where the way out is for the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Washington is still desperately wiping the sign which says “No Thoroughfare” at the end of a blind alley.Washington has been good at putting on the show – promoting hegemony under the guise of “democracy,” and making a fortune from war in the name of “peace.” Yet it does not mean such an approach will never be outdated. Over time, people will eventually see through it. The evolution of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will prove Washington’s nature as a warmonger.-

Biden hell-bent on fanning flames of crisis: China Daily editorial

United States President Joe Biden has a tightly scheduled itinerary for his Europe visit. In Brussels on Thursday, he will attend an emergency NATO summit, a meeting with the other G7 leaders, and address a European Council meeting. He is expected to travel to Poland the following day, where he will meet with his Polish counterpart as well as US troops deployed there.

Whatever else is on his agenda, his trip is to “coordinate on the next phase of military assistance to Ukraine … imposing further sanctions on Russia and tightening the existing sanctions to crack down on evasion and to ensure robust enforcement”, according to US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

The rationale for these moves is to ruin Russia and turn Russian President Vladimir Putin into an “international pariah” as Biden has vowed to do.

So instead of trying to find a way to end the bloodshed and ease the humanitarian crisis on the ground, Biden will be seeking ways to ensure “Putin’s back is against the wall”.

Why? Because that is what the US does. Because it thinks it best serves its purpose. After all, it is what it has always done — from Guatemala, Cuba, Vietnam, and the Congo, to Nicaragua, Iraq, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, the list goes on.

The jackals of its economy trot hungrily on the heels of war and they are never sated.

Yet, as many military analysts warn, the likelihood of an attritional stalemate is growing, which will not only be punishing for both sides, but also worsen the humanitarian crisis.

Many countries, including China, are closely following the development of the Ukraine crisis with concern and are frustrated with the way the US and its key allies are fueling the hostilities with their actions. Instead of addressing the security issue in Europe, which is the root cause of the conflict, they have let their cankered ideology transform legacied animosity toward Russia into unmindful hostility.

As a result, the crisis is developing in a way that threatens broader catastrophic spillovers. The Biden administration’s simplistic approach of “friend or foe” and “black or white” is part of its purpose of dividing the world into “with us or against us” with the aim of maintaining the US-led global hierarchy and realizing the “end of history”.

As such, the Ukraine crisis is a critical moment for the world as it can either preserve or reject the Cold War mentality of bloc confrontation. Beijing, despite the efforts of Washington to portray otherwise, has made it clear that it firmly rejects it.

A negotiated end to the conflict is in everyone’s interest. Since the negotiators of the two warring parties are still at work and both are interested in a negotiated outcome, Biden should be trying to rally a consensus on promoting a negotiated solution to the crisis, rather than pushing to escalate and prolong the armed conflict.

China-Russia relations the most important strategic asset that cannot be damaged by US provocation

The close relationship between China and Russia has been a thorn in the US’ side, especially against the backdrop of the ongoing Ukraine crisis. With the simmering of the situation, it couldn’t be any clearer that Washington is eager to exploit the Russia-Ukraine conflict to drive a wedge between Beijing and Moscow.For one thing, senior White House officials have on multiple occasions accused China of not exerting enough pressure on Russia to stop the country’s military action in Ukraine. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday before US President Joe Biden’s virtual meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping that Washington will “impose costs” for any support Beijing provides to Russia’s actions against Ukraine. He urged Beijing to assume “responsibility to use its influence and defend the international rules and principles that it professes to support.” For another, an increasing number of Western media reports and analyses have emerged to hype how China’s ties with Russia have made China “uncomfortable” and “awkward” and warn that Beijing risks isolation if it doesn’t distance itself from Moscow.NATO’s eastward expansion is the root cause of Russia’s anger and military operation in Ukraine. It’s the US that should put out the fire it lit in Ukraine. Ridiculously, it is demanding Beijing to do this job at the cost of damaging China-Russia relations. This is unreasonable and insidious. By pushing China to denounce Russia and asking China to bear the responsibility for the fatal strategic mistake the US and NATO made in the construction of so-called European security, Washington has no intention of hiding its desire to sow discord between China and Russia.

US State Department spokesperson Ned Price said on Monday that China could use its unique relationship to bring an end to Russia’s actions against Ukraine. What nonsense. Russia is an independent major power and China has no ability to exert influence on Russia’s decision on the Ukraine issue which it deems as a “life-and-death” matter.

If China really pressures Russia in a way that is inconsistent with the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination, it will only undermine the China-Russia relationship and sabotage mutual trust, which will be a huge strategic loss to both sides. This is what the US is eager and happy to see.

Washington knows that China cannot influence Russia or force it to do anything. But it has regarded the Ukraine crisis as a good chance to tear the two countries apart. The more discord Washington could sow between China and Russia, the more it will be in line with US interests. But how can Beijing and Moscow allow such an evil trick to succeed?

Not like the petty followers that Washington can manipulate at will, China and Russia are both independent great powers. Besides, China has maintained a consistent position over the Ukraine issue, emphasizing all sides’ security concerns and interests should be respected and upheld. Its position is out of its own interests and the interests of the region. It will never dance to the tune of the US or sacrifice relations with Russia to satisfy US demands.

It also should be noted that no matter how the Ukraine crisis evolves and how heavily Russia is targeted by the US now, Washington still views China as its biggest strategic competitor. China should bear this in mind all the time. It must not give the US any chance to drive a wedge in the China-Russia relationship.

For a long time, the West has misinterpreted the China-Russia relationship, believing it’s based on expediency and could be easily torn apart. The truth is, the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination has withstood the test of the time and is rock solid. It’s China’s most important and stable diplomatic strategic asset that cannot be damaged.

By Mervyn Cheung Man-ping | China Daily | Updated: 2022-03-18 07:10

On the pretext of defending freedom and democracy in Ukraine, the US-led West and some other countries have again been drawn into a spiraling confrontation with Russia. The root of the Ukraine crisis lies in the fallible assumption that American values are universally accepted and the West’s double standard-laced policy must prevail over the world.

By believing in this fallacy, Ukraine has fallen into the US’ trap resulting in disastrous consequences.

Russia has never concealed its concerns over its national security and territorial integrity, which it believes can be defended only if Ukraine remains neutral and demilitarized. And yet NATO rejected Russian President Vladimir Putin’s call for not making Ukraine a NATO member or militarizing it.

Resorting to its usual tactic, the US ramped up its anti-Russia propaganda, claiming Putin was about to order an attack on Ukraine?only to keep changing the date for the attack. Ultimately, Putin ordered the “special military operation” in Ukraine on Feb 24.

Condemned by Putin for using Ukraine as a “tool” to contain Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom, after “crying wolf” for months, are now sending weapons and military advisers to Ukraine to keep the conflict alive. Instead of making serious, concerted efforts to end the conflict, the US and its allies have been imposing one “harsh” sanction after another on Russia in a bid to “debilitate “its economy and engineer a “color revolution” in the country.

Records show that since the end of World War II, the US has bombed about 30 countries, some of them twice. These countries include Korea and China (1950-53), Cuba (1959-61), Vietnam (1961-73), Iran (1987), Iraq (1991-2015), Bosnia Herzegovina (1994-95), Afghanistan (1998, 2001-21) and Pakistan (2007-15).

So, if a country should pay the price for its “special military operation”, why shouldn’t the US be similarly penalized for its military actions in those countries?

Devised to bring down the Putin government, and target China and other countries that refused to jump on to the US’ bandwagon, the Ukraine crisis should make the world to see through Washington’s design, as Harley Schlanger of The LaRouche Organization has said. According to Schlanger, the Ukraine crisis is a replica of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, as NATO’s eastward expansion will help the US to fulfill its goal of dominating the world by cutting off Europe from Russia, keep the Germans at bay, and put it firmly in charge of the expansive Eurasian region.

It is therefore no surprise that keeping the flames of the Russia-Ukraine conflict burning for as long as possible is in the interest of the US, because apart from pushing forward the White House’s geopolitical agenda, it will also help Biden cover his socioeconomic failures at home. Since the European Union’s economy is about 10 times that of Russia, the US believes it can withstand the shocks of a protracted proxy war, which on the other hand could be economically devastating for Russia, especially because it is already reeling from the Western sanctions and facing growing opposition at home owing to the Ukraine conflict.

Given that UN reports say the conflict has already claimed more than 1,200 civilian lives and left many more wounded, and considering the fastest growing humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II, the US could easily stop the war by advising NATO to stop supplying weapons and equipment to Ukraine or abide by the 2015 Minsk peace agreement that Germany and France brokered among Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.

Unfortunately, however, the Biden administration has been claiming sanctions are the most effective weapon to contain Russia, while ignoring the damage rising inflation will cause to the world economy.

The US and its allies have also been trying to enlist the support of China against Russia, but China has maintained its neutral stance on the conflict, and abstained from voting in the UN meetings condemning Russia for “invading” Ukraine.

In fact, in his virtual meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on March 8, President Xi Jinping reiterated that it is critically important for Europe to stay calm and restrained if it wants to end the conflict.

Supported by Germany and France and worried that the sanctions against Russia, including the ban on transactions with Russia, could deal another big blow to the global economy which is yet to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, China has offered to promote peace talks between the two fighting sides, as well as supply humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian people.

In contrast to the provocative line taken by the White House, China seems to be the only major country, along with the UN, trying to broker peace between Russia and Ukraine. Indeed, China supports any effort that is conducive to easing tensions and ending the crisis.https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202203/18/WS62344843a310fd2b29e51d28.html

Arbitrary economic sanctions illegal and ineffective

By Chen Weihua | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2022-03-17 11:24

The United States, the European Union and several other economies have imposed several rounds of economic sanctions on Russia over the past weeks in order to punish the country for its actions in Ukraine.

This is despite the fact that economic sanctions have, in the past, failed to achieve their goals, as in evident in the cases of Iran, Syria, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Venezuela and Cuba, which are the most sanctioned countries by the US and its Western allies. The sanctions have, however, led to huge suffering of ordinary people in those countries, in particular women and children.

I have visited Cuba three times and seen for myself the horrible human sufferings caused by the US embargo of the small island country since the early 1960s, a brutal embargo that has been overwhelmingly condemned by the United Nations General Assembly every year for the past three decades.

In their latest rounds of sanctions on Russia, US and EU leaders have naively assumed that their severe sanctions will cripple the Russian economy, thereby forcing the population to revolt against the government. But nothing like this has happened in the past. What we have witnessed were often to the contrary: The local population tended to rally even more closely around its government and leaders to resist bullying by foreign powers.

It is therefore shocking to hear Western government leaders and politicians bragging about how their harsh sanctions have destroyed a country’s economy, such as causing currency depreciation and price hikes. It literally means they don’t care about the sufferings of millions of ordinary people.

In a globalized world, economic sanctions often mean huge disruptions in global supply chains, which make those sanctions a collective punishment for the entire world, especially the poor countries.

Instead of easing the tensions, economic sanctions tend to escalate them, as well as intensify hostilities, and make it even more difficult to resolve conflicts through peaceful talks.

Unlike sanctions endorsed by the United Nations Security Council, unilateral economic sanctions imposed by the US and its Western allies totally lack international legitimacy. This is especially true for the US which has been recklessly abusing its economic, financial and military might to sanction dozens of countries, including on China.

In the past, the US also threatened to sanction EU companies which conducted normal trade with Iran after the Donald Trump administration pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, popularly known as the Iran nuclear deal, in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions on Teheran. The EU protested against the move and later and devised the INSTEX financial tool to help its companies bypass US sanctions.

The US is again threatening sovereign countries, those that have normal economic and trade relations with Russia, and forcing them to choose sides. It is again warning countries in the same absurd way that former US president George W. Bush did to justify his devastating wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — “you are either with us or with the terrorists”.

If the US is allowed to punish other sovereign countries which maintain normal trade relations with Russia, then the international rules and the world order will indeed have to be rewritten and replaced by power politics.

When I raised such questions at the European Commission’s daily briefing on Tuesday, the spokesman said the EU’s economic sanctions against Russia do not have extraterritoriality. But he wouldn’t comment on the US sanctions which do have extraterritorial dimensions.

Economic sanctions have long proved to be ineffective in conflict resolution. Peaceful dialogues, which China has been calling for given its good relations with both Russia and Ukraine, are a better way of resolving the current crisis.

Washington forced to reconsider China policy

By LI YANG | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2022-03-17 07:51

On Tuesday, US President Joe Biden signed into law a bill that authorizes billions of dollars in assistance for Ukraine. And Biden is expected to announce more military assistance to Ukraine as early as Wednesday.

Interestingly, it seems that the US cannot get rid of its anxieties that the conflict it has engineered in Ukraine is pushing China and Russia even closer together. Washington continues to allege that China is providing Russia with military assistance, although Beijing has consistently rebutted the claim.

Even though it is its global geopolitical games that have triggered the conflict, Washington is now suffering a paroxysm of anxiety that it may be the odd man out in the tripartite balance of power.

So in seeking to weaken Russia and pull the rug out from under the European Union’s feet Washington is also having to adjust its China policy. China is well aware of what the US wants from it. But that requires a quid pro quo.

As such, it is easy to understand why the Rome meeting between US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi lasted for seven hours, much longer than would be necessary to just reiterate their respective stances.

There was some horse-trading taking place.

With Yang making clear that Washington must stop meddling in the Taiwan question if it wants to strike any kind of deal with China.

It is Russia’ unyielding fights on both military and economic fronts that has spurred Washington to reach out to Beijing in Rome.

That the two sides, both closely following the development of the Ukraine crisis, said they will keep the exchange channel open shows the two sides haven’t come to an agreement yet but that there clearly remains room for the two countries to do so.

Due to their lack of mutual trust, it remains to be seen what will unfold.

For Beijing it is a difficult balancing act as it has an opportunity to get something it wants from Washington but at the same time it does not want to jeopardize the geopolitical benefits of its “no-limits” cooperation with Russia.

But whatever the outcome, the Rome meeting should have left the secessionists in Taiwan with no doubt that Washington’s support for the folly of their cause is nothing but an expendable bargaining chip.

„Wir werden nicht zulassen, dass die Situation destabilisiert und die Bewohner von Mariupol ausgeraubt werden. Daher werden das Militär, die Territorialverteidigung und die Ordnungskräfte so hart vorgehen, wie es die Kriegszeiten erfordern. Plünderer und Diversanten werden auf der Stelle liquidiert“, erklärte Bojtschenko.

Er forderte die Bürger auf, sich während der Ausgangssperre nicht in der Stadt zu bewegen, immer Ausweisdokumente dabei zu haben, von Plünderern und Verdächtigen in der Polizei zu melden.
