China’s enemy is itself.

The cocksure PRC's newfound arrogance offends others.

Hopefully, pride still cometh before the fall.

Lou shook the Australian's hand, sat down, lit a cigarette without asking Hockey's permission and said: "Why won't you let me buy Rio Tinto?" the giant Anglo-Australian mining conglomerate.
( :lol: 'Why? Because we are not so stupid as to permit a sizable chunk of our mining industry pass into your hands.' )

It looks to me that even the casual rudeness of the PRC minister described in that Bali incident was calculated rudeness. It was ploy to test our then new Federal treasurer to see what his resolve is/was like. Joe Hockey, I am relieved to say, passed the test much to this country's relief.

The PRC is constantly testing eminent foreign barbarians worldwide like that probing for weaknesses. Where it can find a weakness it ruthlessly exploits it.

God help any country with weak leadership. Such a country is grist for the PRC mill.

Well, of course a publication like the China Daily would publish something like this supportive of PRC government policy.

Yes, O'Neill's comments on China's economy appeared in a Chinese paper. I didn't realize that that constituted grounds for dismissing them. I'll keep that in mind the next time I see comments on Australia's economy in Australian papers.

We have a free press. The PRC does not!

The ruling party in China allows to be published only what it wants you to know (or more often what it wants its subject peoples to believe). In Australia, the media publishes what government and Opposition alike would probably rather keep to themselves.

That may be true, but what that have to do with dismissing O'Neill's commentary?
