2009 China Fed America, 2010 America Bites China

10 January 2010
 

This is the except of an article titled In 2009 We Face Challenge Together, In 2010 We Turn on Each Other?! by Sun Xiliang (孙锡良: 2009共克时艰,2010中美翻脸?!) and its English translation:

I remember at the end of 2008 when America’s financial catastrophe was in its worst stage, our leaders kept visiting America, and promised we’ll help them to overcome the crisis in 2009, even though it was against the will of the majority of people in China. But the leaders decided this was what China should do, and they did.

With 2009 just passed and the financial situation in America improved, Americans pull their face and turn on China, again. Those people have not changed; no matter how much Chinese have helped them, they will forever view Chinese as their ultimate enemies.

If China-America relationship does turn nasty in 2010, I think it could be a good thing. Americans are not the people who are capable of living with others in peace, because they know, that if they respect others as their equal, it would spell the end for their global dictatorship; and Chinese also know, that if we continue to allow America to treat us as a second-class nation, China's renascence will forever remain as a dream. One is unwilling to give up its power to enslave others, while the other is determined to free itself from slavery, in such a situation, the clash is almost inevitable, soon or late. And my view, the sooner the better.

We just need to be tough when dealing with America’s ceaseless and endless in-your-face provocations and if that will lead to an open confrontation, so be it. Only if we are resolute that no matter how strong America might be, how many allies America could gather, we'll take the challenge regardless, since we’d rather fall to pieces like broken jade than remain intact as a worthless tile. And only when we have such a determination, the worst scenario might then be avoided.

2009共克时艰,2010中美翻脸?!

2008年底,美国处在经济危机最困难的时刻,中国的各级领导人纷纷前去美国,多次在美国人面前保证将在2009年与美国共克时艰,在其它国际公开场合亦是持相同论调,展现了中国人民的友善与胸怀,即使民间声音未必完全赞同,但是,中国该共的还是共了,国内的媒体也跟着热热闹闹地与美国一起“共克时艰”了一年,然而美国这个怪物并不卖帐,你喊你的共克时艰,他搞他的单极霸权,你帖你的热脸蛋,我翘我的冷屁股,中国还是那个中国,美国还是那个美国。

2010年,如果中美真的翻脸,不用害怕,我反倒认为是一件好事,中美不管是从哪方面来讲,都是不可能真正平等相待的,美国人意识到一旦放弃霸道,就意味着美国的衰落,中国人也意识到,如果永远做奴才,就意味着中华民族的复兴会落空,一个想要永远做主子,一个想要摆脱被束缚,迟早总有一天要正面相对的,迟面对不如早面对,低声下气的面对不如理直气壮的面对,软应对不如硬碰撞,不撞出火花解决不了双方的死结,不管美国有多么强的综合实力,不管美国有多么铁杆的欧洲兄弟,中国人只要抱着“宁为玉碎、不为瓦全”的心态,中美反倒不会出现最坏的结果,如果仍然坚持委曲求全的态度,那么结果就无法由自己选择了。
