Face

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.
It says.
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.

Rice shouted.
This is our President and this is our plane.
How diplomatic.

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.

Sad but deserving

News from Taipei is not good.
Trust is gone.
And economy will get much worse.

US government had long demonstrated.
It is how 100 days shaping 4 years.
Evidences are plenty.

It is like a rookie camp.
You test and adjust.
100 days are plenty.

For the seasoned with ability they came out shing.
That is to take shape clearly to public eyes.
But not here.

100 days of new government in Taiwan is doing badly.
Poll is under 50 percent.
And worst is on the way.

The interesting part is.
The poll is done by ruling party themselves.
The root of all problems definitely is anti-China.

People voted early this were fully aware the fact.
Yet they pretend politicians were telling the truth.
It can be normal with China as always.

Voters knew it.
All depend on the conning of new government.
And they blindly believed it would work.

But not this time, Taiwan voters finally got caught.
It is too smart for own good.
It doesn’t fly this time.

New government is doing everything it can.
That is going independent in any and every way.
They simply will not voice One-China.

Now they truly go back to their 40% base.
It is my way or no way.
The other 60% less is really angry.

9/3 is national military day.
But with new government honoring military is a joke.
It clearly is a tool to be used.

Dishonoring is more like it.
They had it.
Now retired public sectors will hit the street together to protest.

And tourism sector will be next on 9/12.
They are facing serious close-down.
That will be before year end.

People are really angry now.
This government let them down.
But they are the one voted this government in.

Come to think of it.
If voters thought hard and deep, they could realize.
Stay normal with China simply was a lie.

Voters took easy way out.
They themselves were not responsible in the first place.
Now to voice the blame is just a bad joke.
