Cadence Column: Asia, November 11, 2019


Hong Kong has presented the world with the ethical question of confronting bullies. Say there is a bully at school who quietly eats whosever lunch he wants, stealing anyone’s homework he wants, until one day someone says something and the bully gets violent. In theory, most people agree that the bully started it. But in … Continue reading

Xi Jinping warns that attempts to divide China will end with ‘crushed bodies and shattered bones’


Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday said that any attempts to drive a wedge between China and its territories will “end in crushed bodies and shattered bones.” Xi made the remarks during a state visit to Nepal on Sunday. “Anyone attempting to split China in any part of the country will end in crushed bodies … Continue reading

China is running into one of the problems of Communism; once the government controls a company, what that company buys is fair game in treaty negotiations. China’s government owns a lot of Chinese companies. The world already knows this, but Trump is the first president to figure it out. Neither Trump nor Xi are attempting … Continue reading

How long can China’s workers tolerate China’s dictator?


Many observers have warned that the Chinese could dominate the field of artificial intelligence. Maybe it will dominate them. The potential impact of technology on the Chinese workforce could be driving Beijing to try again for a U.S. trade deal. Lingling Wei and Chao Deng report in the Journal: China is looking to narrow the … Continue reading

China refutes Trump’s claim it’s the source of fentanyl in the U.S.


China said Tuesday that it’s not the source of the fentanyl that’s killing Americans, contrary to U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent tweets blaming China for the drug deaths. At a briefing for the National Narcotics Control Commission, China reiterated that it is making extensive efforts toward controlling the synthetic opioid and should not be labeled … Continue reading

Trump says China has blinked in trade war – talks on again


President Donald Trump said Monday that China called to say it wants to go back to the bargaining table and restart trade talks with the United States. Trump says Chinese officials called Washington to urge a return to negotiations after an impasse provoked stock market chaos last week, USA Today reported Monday. The president was … Continue reading

US Republicans look to punish Chinese leaders over Hong Kong crackdown


Trump hasn’t rushed to condemn China, but behind the scenes, senior administration officials and lawmakers are brainstorming ways to punish China for the clampdown in Hong Kong. President Donald Trump hasn’t exactly gone after China’s chiefs for cracking down on protesters in Hong Kong. Trump said earlier this month that he wanted to see the … Continue reading

In the singing, fake-smiling scenes of Uyghurs in reeducation camps in China, the Chinese expect the world to be swayed to believe they are happy. That’s how Chinese view it with each other—they fake-smile at each other and buy the lie because they hope other people buy into their own fake smiles. The Chinese have … Continue reading

The Korean DMZ is the hottest new place to socialize! Dear Leaders charge to the border to shake hands. Presidents line up early to get a good spot. Few diplomatic maneuvers or promises on trade can compete with the political electricity and friendship found at the one border in Asia that has no military. Trump’s … Continue reading

The ultimate betrayal of Rodrigo Duterte to the Filipino people and his utter love for China and Xi Jinping


I refer to “Duterte Stands by China, Doubts Own Fishermen in Sea Collision” by Andreo Calonzo published by Bloomberg on June 18th with regard to the indescribable betrayal of the hoodlum from Davao to the Filipino people and his unquestionable bias and love of China and its leader, specificallyXi Jin Ping. According to the said … Continue reading

Chinese rhetoric spiked over recent weeks. They made threats. Trump made threats. They made more threats. Trump and Xi are BFF, just like Xi and Putin, but Xi and Putin are BFF-er. Now, we move toward quiet action. If China stops exporting “rare earth metals” to the US, the US would simply get them from … Continue reading

Events in China are playing out according to the “Pacific Daily Times Symphony Asian Mad Scientist Theorem“. The experimental phase in North Korea is finished and methods are being applied throughout China on a much grander scale. This week, we see reports of expensive ghost cities, comparable to Pyongyang. The debt to build those ghost … Continue reading

Xi Jinping’s global domination dreams hit a wall amid growing backlash against China


With the shock election of anti-globalist Donald Trump to the US presidency still fresh in their minds, international leaders watched with anticipation as Chinese President Xi Jinping stepped up to the podium at Davos in January 2017. Xi’s speech in favor of globalization and free trade was met with praise by governments and businesses across … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, December 31, 2018


China and the US—more specifically Xi and Trump—are talking more and more about talking more and more about trade. China has drafted legislation to propose making China a fair country to outsiders. What a great proposed Christmas gift, just before the New Year. In light of everything, China seems to be making other concessions to … Continue reading

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-Wen apologizing after a mid-term defeat at the provincial level will not demonstrate strength on her part, but she shows respect and stability in maintaining her appointees and policy toward China. Having not stood her ground on information about proposal that would have set Taiwan’s team name at the Olympics in Japan … Continue reading

China is creating concentration camps in Xinjiang. Here’s how we hold it accountable.


China continues to see the uproar over its creation of concentration camps holding as many as 1 million ethnic Uighurs and others as a public-relations problem. In recent days, the government issued another white paper claiming it is protecting religious freedom and culture in the autonomous northwestern province of Xinjiang, despite evidence that it has … Continue reading

In Taiwanese politics, a mayor candidate’s comments about his own benefits from drinking honey-lemonade sparked retribution from the medical community. After a lump under his eye went away, apparently from a vegetarian and honey-lemonade diet, he actually said so. A professional from a hospital was quick to weigh in. It’s understandable. If people learned that … Continue reading

Xi Jinping announced yet another new policy for China: Blaming other countries is wrong, each country must deal with its own economic and environmental issues without the problem being someone else’s fault. While this 180° new direction should be welcoming to foreign companies whose intellectual property was taken by China, along with the neighboring lands … Continue reading

Western analysts got lost in the Abe-Xi maze, and failed to notice a coming synergy in East Asia


For unknown reasons, many Western political analysts made mistakes in understanding the Washington-Pyongyang relation (e.g. forecasting bloody nose strike, but being shockingly embarrassed by the Trump-Kim Singapore summit), and then the Pyongyang-Beijing relation (portraying a tension, but being surprisingly slapped by Kim’s three visits to Beijing before and after the Singapore summit). Their latest error … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, September 3, 2018


China is in trouble. We don’t know why, but we know the indication: Trump will be absent from ASEAN. He was absent from a funeral this week and his support grew. He was absent from a Republican debate, then he won the Republican nomination. By not meeting Xi face to face, Xi won’t be able … Continue reading

The silent war between the Koreas is shifting to family reunions. Families split by the war are having a get-together today in the North. Trump has a deal with Kim Jong Un. Peace is moving forward, and Korean reunification along with it. Reunification is one of China’s values and things look great as they are. … Continue reading

Beijing joins the ‘Trump-Putin Helsinki Summit is Yalta 2.0’ Debate


An AFP article published on July 1 is probably the first one comparing the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit to the 1945 Yalta Conference where President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Premier Joseph Stalin agreed on certain post-WWII arrangements among themselves personally. Since then, a series of comments went on to argue that the … Continue reading

Cracks appear in ‘invincible’ Xi Jinping’s authority over China


Rumours have swirled in Beijing in recent weeks that China’s seemingly invincible leader, Xi Jinping, is in trouble, dogged by a protracted trade war with the US, a slowing economy and a public health scandal involving thousands of defective vaccines given to children. Xi’s name seemed to have disappeared for a while from the cover … Continue reading

China is reaching out to the world. It doesn’t want tariffs imposed by the US. President Xi Jinping likely feels betrayed by the man who was so kind to him previously, President of the United States Donald Trump. The Western press will of course paint China and Trump as the villains—each in their different sectors—while … Continue reading

Is Modi joining the Indo-Pacific containment of China, or not?


An informal India-China summit between the two leaders was held on April 27-28, 2018. Although it did not capture much attention of the Western mainstream media, it has signified a decisive, if not yet a U-turn, change to the India-China relationship. Let us have a quick look at the background. Firstly, a 73-day military standoff … Continue reading

How China may benefit from Trump’s pullout from the Iran deal


Almost all the leading mainstream media across the Atlantic Ocean express worries about the U.S.-Europe ties after President Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal on May 8. The influential der Spiegel of Germany says “Trump strikes a deep blow to Trans-Atlantic ties”. The Observer editorial at the Guardian talks about “Europe’s duty … Continue reading

‘China Threat’ helps make Trump a great president


Further to the Pew Research’s 2014 finding that “…The ‘China threat’ in particular looms large in many American minds”, a new study finds that “trade and China”, alongside “immigration”, carried heavy weight in having Donald Trump elected as the President in 2016. The research paper approved on March 26, 2018 by the Proceedings of the … Continue reading

Trump to win more trophies from China in the 2018 trade war


US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is said to be visiting China beginning from May 3 Thursday. It means the trade war negotiation is about to enter into the direct bargaining stage and, if done smoothly, a deal would be finalized very quickly. Trump’s victory appears to be too easy and more fruitful than anticipated. The … Continue reading

Businesses don’t like it, but the Australian government is dead right about China


Business and China Lobbyists can jump up and down, but the government has handled the aggressive and brutal Chinese dictatorship well. The China Lobby has various groupings, and a strictly accurate China Lobby Watch should note which wing is behind which statements. Today, it’s the business wing pushing the pro-Beijing line. The Financial Review‘s Jennifer Hewett … Continue reading

China again threatening to invade Philippines island of Pagasa


It appears that China, emboldened by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s kowtowing to China, is once again planning to invade the Philippines island of Pagasa. China’s plans to invade Pagasa, known as Zhongye by the Chinese, were first revealed in a world exclusive by China Daily Mail in January 2014. This led to representations by the … Continue reading

Nobody knows anything about China


As a foreigner in China, you get used to hearing the retort “You don’t know China!” spat at you by locals. It’s usually a knee-jerk reaction to some uncomfortable modern issue or in defense of one of the many historical myths children in the mainland are taught as unshakeable facts about the world. But it’s … Continue reading

Unlike much of the Western press, Pacific Daily Times does not side with governments, political parties, or socio-economic ideologies. The Times only sides with history, that by learning from history much of the future is foreseeable. Foreseeability, based on history, is the only bias at Pacific Daily Times. Foreseeability is not preference, hopes, or will—good … Continue reading

Parallels between the Ming dynasty and Xi Jinping’s “anti-corruption campaign”


Of all the civilisations of premodern times, none appeared more advanced, none felt more superior, than that of China. Its considerable population, 100-130 million compared with Europe’s 50-55 million in the fifteenth century; it’s remarkable culture; it’s exceedingly fertile and irrigated plains, linked by a splendid canal system since the eleventh century and its unified … Continue reading

As talks between Kim and Trump march forward, China is resigned to the new situation at its eastern border and is focusing on other areas, specifically trade. In truth, China’s main trade opponent is not the US, but Vietnam. Vietnam’s main edge in trade will be that it is less expensive. Vietnam is, in many … Continue reading

China’s two-term limit removal and a war in 2020-5?


The CCP’s proposal to remove the two-term limits on the state’s president and vice-president, which is a disrespect of Deng Xiaoping’s will, has definitely generated various negative influences onto China as well as the world: [a] paving a route towards lifelong dictatorship, [b] causing high risk to both domestic and foreign investors in China’s economy, … Continue reading

It’s hitting the fan. China is homing-up and the US is “posseing” up. CFIUS is expanding its scope and China just required Apple to send its iCloud encryption keys to servers on the mainland. Both moves are more about caution than provocation. The US is stepping up patrols to enforce the trade block on North … Continue reading

Duterte in between China and Quad


“Australia, the United States, India and Japan are talking about establishing a joint regional infrastructure scheme as an alternative to China’s multibillion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative in an attempt to counter Beijing’s spreading influence …” reported by Reuters on Feb 19, 2018. These four countries are commonly referred to as the “Quad”, the driving force … Continue reading

How significant is Macron’s 3-day visit to China 2018?


It appears that French President Emmanuel Macron’s 3-day visit to China was a diplomatic gesture of no significance. Aside from the horse presented by Macron to China in return for the panda, the Chinese order of 184 short-haul Airbus A320s and the removal of ban on French beef (since 2001 due to Europe’s ‘mad cow’ … Continue reading

Israelis, Palestinians to attend forum in Beijing after Trump’s Jerusalem recognition


It is undeniably painful to the Arabs in general and the Palestinians in particular for facing the cruel reality that the Trump administration officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. However, despite the high profile protests raised by President Erdogan of Turkey at the summit of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Dec 13, and … Continue reading

Now, North Korea may have biological weapons. Every week, the news is worse and worse. Eventually, a conflict with North Korea will feel more like a relief to the public than an outrage, just from fatigue of bad news overdose. That level of fatigue is—or at least should be—part of military logistics calculation. However, that … Continue reading

One of the reasons for the India-China discomfort


The Economic Times, the leading Indian daily newspaper in English with a readership of over 800,000, published an article stipulating “three key reasons why India and China must not go to war at a time like this” on Sep 12. “Moving away from ‘assaulting with stones’ to ‘building with BRICS’ could be the new mantra … Continue reading

China’s shared bikes as one of the ‘four new inventions’ in foreigners’ eyes


High-speed rails, Alipay, shared bikes and online shopping are China’s new four great ‘inventions’, said a number of foreign youngsters in China, mostly students from the Third World countries, when responding to a survey by the Silk Road Research Institute of Beijing Foreign Studies University. Perhaps, commercially or scientifically speaking, these items are not ‘invented’ … Continue reading

China supports two-state solution to settle the Palestinian issue


Standing next to the visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Beijing, Xi Jinping states clearly that China supports the two-state solution which is in line with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334. It is the loudest rebuttal to certain analysts’ ill-motivated question on China’s stand on and on for many years. Having said that, … Continue reading

China says Sino-British Joint Declaration on Hong Kong no longer has meaning


China said on Friday the joint declaration with Britain over Hong Kong, which laid the blueprint over how the city would be ruled after its return to China in 1997, was a historical document that no longer had any practical significance. In response, Britain said the declaration remained in force and was a legally valid … Continue reading

China is setting up military bases in Pakistan


China is set to expand its military capabilities across the globe, with new overseas bases in countries like Pakistan, as the world’s largest army seeks an increased role in defending China’s interests abroad, a report by the Pentagon has said. China spent $180bn on the People’s Liberation Army last year, according to the annual report … Continue reading

China is trying to reshape the world In China’s image


China is one of the few countries in the world today with money to spend, and Xi Jinping is ready to write some cheques. China’s president will host almost 30 world leaders in Beijing on Sunday at the first Belt and Road Forum, the centerpiece of a soft-power push backed by hundreds of billions of … Continue reading

China compiles its own Wikipedia, but public can’t edit it


It’ll be free. It’ll be uniquely Chinese. It’ll be an online encyclopedia to rival Wikipedia — but without the participation of the public. And don’t expect entries on “Tiananmen Square 1989” or “Falun Gong spiritual group” to come up in your searches, either. Scholars and experts hand-picked by Beijing to work on the project say … Continue reading

The news would have us think that China’s reverse-engineered copy of a Soviet-made diesel aircraft carrier is nuclear-powered and in full commission. It’s not. It’s simply being towed from one construction site to another. But, it is another milestone step in progress and the West needs to pay close attention. With all the excitement over … Continue reading

China could accept US strike on North Korea as prelude to Chinese occupation


A Chinese state-run newspaper said Saturday that China would not engage militarily if the US conducted a surgical strike on North Korea’s nuclear facility, noting it would only resort to diplomatic channels to oppose such a move. Beijing’s position was stated in an editorial in the state-run Global Times, a tabloid controlled by China’s Communist Party. … Continue reading

‘Dr Strange’ in Hong Kong and the time loop of fights


The 2016 movie ‘Doctor Strange’ recorded a worldwide box office gross of US$677.6 million to which mainland China and Hong Kong contributed $109 mn and $8 mn respectively (Mojo data).
