Chen Guangcheng will go back to China

Chen Guangcheng

Commercial Radio Hong Kong says, according to Prof Jerome Cohen, Chen will finally return to China while SCMP reports that Chen “says he hopes to return to China after studying law and taking time to recover from years-long detention ordeal”.

In Commercial Radio’s story, Chen lives in the dormitory for postgraduates in New York University. The radio station’s reporter waited outside the dormitory from early morning and saw Chen’s wife push Chen in a wheel chair out into the garden. Along with their two children, they enjoyed sunshine for about 30 minutes. The children were seen playing with other children.

Prof Jerome Cohen of the university’s law school said that Chen was in good health after one day’s rest and had not talked about his personal affairs for the time being. Prof Cohen believes that Chen will finally go back to China, as leaving China was not his first choice. He moreover points out Chen changed his mind in Chaoyang Hospital and hoped to leave China because of his supporter Teng Biao’s persuasion, and the beating his wife had suffered made him believe that it was dangerous to remain in China.

Prof. Cohen says that Chen is very clever and will study the differences between the Chinese and American legal systems at New York University for one year. The lessons will mainly be given in Chinese. He discloses that he has received lots of offer of financial assistance, and also lots of requests for interviews. He says he will handle them carefully.

In RTHK’s report, Chen expresses gratitude to US embassy in China for its help and hopes that the public will supervise the Chinese government in honouring its promise. Chen also says, “as long as one persists, there is nothing too difficult.”

SCMP says, “He (Chen) took only one question from reporters, replying ‘yes’ when asked if he would return to China. In prepared remarks he said: ‘Equality and justice have no boundaries.’”

According to SCMP, Chen says that he has received a promise from the Chinese government that it will protect his rights as a citizen for a long time, and that he believes the promise is sincere and will be honoured.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
