Since Obama finished his Asian trip in 2009, the Middle Kingdom seems to be on a collision course with the U.S. Most western media insisted on 3T (Trade, Tibet, and Taiwan) which are a major cause of conflict between China and the U.S. But Robert J. Samuelson of the Washington Post (15 February 2010) offers interesting insight. “China does not accept the legitimacy and desirability of the post-World War II global order, which involves collective responsibility among great powers (led by the United States) for world economic stability and peace.” Why should the Middle Kingdom listen to the U.S. which instigated the global financial tsunami for millions of people currently suffering? The American hypocrisy needs to stop.
