In my latest editorial for CGTN, I wonder what the current crisis in Ukraine might look like if only Western leaders had heeded an important piece of advice. No man is perfect, but good luck finding someone who understands geopolitics better than Henry Kissinger. The man celebrated most especially in the U.S. and China for … Continue reading CGTN: The Ukraine crisis: The West’s provocative culpability
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore why one U.S. senator needs to rethink his let's-sanction-China strategy. Returning to Rubio, we must acknowledge that in attempting to validate his bona fides as an anti-Communist, he is ignoring reality. Any sanctions the U.S. would issue against China would be met with a response by the … Continue reading CGTN: U.S. senator swings, misses in criticism of China
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore the culture of fear about China that has been created in the U.S. ...the American public is not being served by the biased assessment of China's history, potential and ambitions coming from the elite media and so-called experts. Trust is essential if real progress between the two … Continue reading CGTN: Flawed narrative about China in U.S. damages potential for a shared future
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why the years 2003 and 2021 remain critical in understanding why U.S. credibility is questioned around the world. The damage done to U.S. credibility across the world because of the lies about Iraq and China ensure a dark cloud continues to hang over Washington. Put rather bluntly: … Continue reading CGTN: Lies about WMD damage U.S. credibility at U.N.
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I outline why the Biden administration has to end the failed "China Initiative" now. We must not mince words here: The "China Initiative" has nothing to do with uncovering educators who are seeking to share important research findings with China. And it has nothing to do with national security. … Continue reading CGTN: It’s time for the U.S. to end its failed “China Initiative”
Photo: Anthony Moretti 19Jan2017 In my latest editorial for CGTN, I explore why Joe Biden's first year as president has been awful. And it might not get better anytime soon. The experienced Biden – with decades in the Senate and eight years as Barack Obama's vice president – seemed a guarantee in an otherwise chaotic … Continue reading CGTN: This is not what Biden’s supporters expected; it might only get worse
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why the U.S. Secretary of State needs to rethink a recent comment he made about Russia and its military. There is little question America's safety would not be threatened by reducing its global military footprint. Such actions also could improve the world opinion about the U.S. But … Continue reading CGTN: Which country never leaves?
In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why last January's insurrection at the Capitol laid the foundation for the potential crushing of democracy in the U.S. People all over the world would be making a huge mistake in thinking America's democracy is so deeply rooted into the fabric of the country that it could … Continue reading Could American democracy be on its last legs?
In my latest editorial for China Focus, I examine how consistently negative political rhetoric and a compliant media harm America's understanding of China. Whether it is reporting about China’s military growth, economic development, human rights record or something else, these mainstream news media stories repeatedly fabricate the intentions of the Chinese government; the picture that … Continue reading China Focus: Dangerous rhetoric, reporting doom U.S. understanding of China
