China talking out it's it's rear end again. The entire world recognizes that it is China's threat of taking Taiwan by military force, and their territorial expansion to take over the South China Sea that is threatening stability in the region.

What about US territorial expansion: Marshall Islands, Guam, Samoa, Hawaii..... What about instability  caused by US: Venezuela, Iran, Iraq, Cuba, Syria, Libya, Palestinian Territories, North Korea....?

Like it or not there have been two Chinese cultures since 1949. A free, independent and democratic China on the Island nation of Taiwan. And a repressed China run by the communist party that outlaws freedom of speech, religion and action that are not approved by the privileged in the Communist party.

That situation had nothing to do with US involvement and was created by the Chinese themselves by their civil war.

Peter14: " China run by the communist party that outlaws freedom of speech, religion and action".

Do you mean that China does not have freedom for civilians to have arms and massacre its fellow citizens? Or the freedom of free speech like Julian Assange  who exposed US war crimes? Or freedom for companies to trade from whom they want without US sanctions . Or do you mean freedom of African/Americans not to be indiscriminately killed by police for minor misdemeanours?

No, they don’t have freedom of speech, religion and action.

Or the freedom of free speech like Julian Assange who exposed US war crimes?

Or learning about Tiananmen square massacre or not being allowed to Google words like, democracy, freedom, human rights, freedom of religion...for example.

Or freedom for companies to trade from whom they want without US sanctions.

Then maybe they shouldn’t do something that would get them into that position.

.Or do you mean freedom of African/Americans not to be indiscriminately killed by police for minor misdemeanours?

Especially in predominately Democrat run cities

Is Shao Yuanming speaking for the Chinese government or does he have his own agenda?

CCP run china does not have freedom to speak out against the ruling party. They do not have the right to religion that is not run by the CCP. They can not vote the CCP out of power. The Uyghurs are killed and imprisoned in state sanctioned actions worse than treatment of African/Americans in the US. Chinese do not have the freedom to have arms but manage to massacre citizens and children with knives from time to time. All companies in China are at the direction of the CCP and obey without question as they have no legal ability to do otherwise as the party is the law in China. No separation of powers in China to ensure a chance of a free and fair trial.

For every bad thing you say about the US, there are the same or worse that can be said of China.

Peter14: May I suggest you read some accredited history books instead of US propaganda. Your premise is that just because China does it, its OK for the US to do it, but to a lessor extent. Strange logic.

Incorrect assumption on your part @rlperez@hotmail.com.au

The US is far from perfect. It's current President is case in point. My point is that no matter how bad you think the US is, China is far worse.

"no matter how bad you think the US is, China is far worse."

As I said, American propaganda. Read some of the atrocities committed by the US over the past 200 years. Read some objective history books.

I have read history. My statement stands and is correct for both past and present.
