Recently, I watched an interview program on CGTN TV. The host asked an American scholar about the Sino-US dispute. He responded with an affirmative attitude and expected that the dispute would not stop because the United States had difficulty accepting that China or any country challenged the United States to lead the world. The host countered: Since the founding of the People's Republic of China, it has never taken the initiative to wage war against any country, and has no ambition to occupy the territory of any country. China is a country that loves and values peace. Why is the United States worried that it will be replaced by it? Fortify and fight hard?|
I did not expect American scholars to answer this: Although China has become the world's second largest economy, it still lags far behind the United States in the field of science and technology, and there is a considerable distance in military power. At present, it will not challenge the United States, nor will it reveal anything. External ambitions; but when it catches up from behind and has enough power, it is difficult to guarantee that it will not expand outwards and show ambitions. With this mentality in mind, Americans will continue to be hostile to China, and will try to delay its development so that it will never catch up with the United States. Another fear (distrust) is caused by different ideologies. The United States believes that they will never be at odds with China. If so, world peace will be difficult to achieve.
How can we dispel Americans' anxiety and change their perception of China so as to turn enemies into friends? Deng Xiaoping once advocated keeping a low profile, keeping a low profile, and avoiding disputes with any country. He was especially cautious about the United States and could bear it, but aimed at maintaining a peaceful environment and conducive to development. This guideline has been followed. China has enjoyed a long period of peaceful development and has made considerable gains in all aspects.
The rise of China has aroused worldwide attention. Western countries, led by the United States, have even more scorned us, pre-empted, and blocked everywhere. The English-speaking countries formed the "Five Eyes Alliance", which pointed directly at China, using "Huawei" as one of the targets, ordered a ban on parts to Huawei, banned Huawei products, and set up roadblocks for Huawei's outward development. The state policy of keeping a low profile may be out of date, and it is necessary to re-examine and adjust.
Huawei products have been accused of concealing "hidden channels" to steal information for the Chinese government, but the accusers have been unable to provide evidence. Conversely, US products with the same purpose have been found to have installed these "secret authorities", which can provide the US government with intelligence. If Huawei products are widely used, wouldn't they cut off the channels of the United States to monitor the world? They will definitely come up with countermeasures and work with the alliance to hide the real goal. China must fight back, use credible evidence for counter-propaganda, and return to its own right with its own way. China cannot rely solely on the Global Times and CGTN as weapons for cultural propaganda. It must use the power of Western media to strengthen its offensive. Most of the media are commercial organizations, and they can make good use of it when they talk about business and profit.
