US side said.
This is our President.
And this our plane.
Chinese side said.
This our country.
And this is our airport.
That does not sound diplomatic.
Actually it was more like face off.
Both sides are ripping each other down.
And G-20 wasn’t starting yet.
This G-2 confrontation said one thing.
They ran out room for tolerance and things could get worse.
Instinctively we can see.
China fight back on US “my way or no way”.
US shows “this is our way for years”.
China is too angry to be civilized.
US failed to see “they can’t call all shot no more”.
It was a new day.
Canada press put it light.
Obama was snubbed.
Yes, Chinese didn’t provide ladder for Obama to get down.
That is from front part of plane.
And there was no red carpet.
This is our President and this is our plane.
And Chinese said.
This is our country and this this our airport.
Hawkish line is clearly in place.
This is badly screwed up coordination.
West press called it a snub.
Chinese side simply printed nothing.
Yes, lam duck President still demand top billing.
And Chinese side stone-wall it.
“Push me not”are evident.
Obama played tough on South Sea.
But the truth is.
US are one country did not sign the international sea agreement.
That morally gave US no role in this argument.
Obama also quotes decision by court over China and Philippines.
But US never respect that court’s decision before.
And US were a guilty party many times too.
China is taking it no more.
This makes world a dangerous place.
I often wonder.
Where is the balance?
That is between human nature and human right.
West brag too much about human right.
It is a weapon now more than moral standard.
And all fail to allow room for differences between countries.
No one likes others to tell them what to do.
It is human nature.
We all want to live in dignity.
Then mutual respect is a must.
That is why we call it civilized.
Chinese made it simple.
They call it face.
There is no room for rudeness.
Yet West love to point finger at face.
And they call it frankness.
China had swallowed the pride many times over.
Now they will not anymore.
Face is a funny thing.
Old Europe dueled with sword or pistol to defend honor.
American Western simply were hot with gun fight.
Chinese took face very serious.
It is said.
Patient with revenge, ten years is not too long.
Indeed human right is a universal value today.
But that is not to all Chinese.
The majority of Chinese do not have that in their blood.
And in all fairness, world powers play it in double standard.
Many look it the other way when there is national interest.
Human right is inspiring no more.
Human right is handy more than ever.
Smart lawyers are plenty.
They are so good at using it.
In reality, China is far from ideal.
By nature, they prefer to find their own way.
Yet West demand “my way or noway”.
We do know old style die hard.
Chinese are seeking out their own human right direction.
They had plenty in their tradition.
US have power play in South China Sea.
No Chinese is living well with that.
Bully is all US now.
To really help China, patience is a must.
Rome was not build in one day.
But sadly many prefer to smack down China now.
Some enjoy doing it in-your-face way.
China had good practice in “turn the other cheek”.
But now they are not.
China knows what they are doing.
To reach next level, they must crack down on corruption.
And bad apples are good at tricks and conning.
Smart ones all took cover with human right.
Chinese government has a hard choice.
They have to decide to get it done or wait forever.
We all say.
Obey the law.
But when caught, human right always came handy.
And West governments are very fast to protest and rescue.
Yes, China was easy before.
But Time is changing.
China domestic market is the biggest.
The future world economy depends on it.
US big names tried the hardest yet failed to settle in.
Canada will get less from US after year end election.
British exit is another big X factor.
China is vital to all.
Now G-20 is over.
All things seemed going well.
China is silent but strong.
Obama didn’t say or do much.
Both sides are good at keeping face.
Now it is really G-2 day.
