Chinese Foreign Ministry Blows Up Over America’s Failure
The Chinese Community Party-controlled Chinese Foreign Ministry leveled an angry tirade against the United States on Twitter Friday of last week. A spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on nations around the world to reject the United States and blamed us for “failing” Afghanistan.
“The US has failed in Afghanistan, but still hasn’t changed its habit of meddling in other countries’ internal affairs in the name of democracy and human rights, and stoking division and confrontation around the world,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin tweeted. “This would only lead the US to new and greater failures.”
Wenbin went even further and said that the international community needed to jointly reject the United State’s recklessness and the way it was “creating chaos and turbulence in the name of democracy and human rights, and prevent another tragedy of Afghanistan in our world.”
The Chinese Foreign Ministry is under the control of the Central Foreign Affairs Commission of the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The leader of this Foreign Ministry is Wang Yi, who also holds a key position in the CCP.
Wenbin also wrote on social media, “The ‘Kabul moment’ puts the US’s hypocrisy on democracy and human rights and its true colors of relying on power politics and bullying practices on full display.”
It was as the United States was leaving Kabul last year that the Chinese government used the state-run Global Times to taunt Taiwan. The newspaper wrote an editorial that said, “From what happened in Afghanistan, those in Taiwan should perceive that once a war breaks out in the Straits, the island’s defense will collapse in hours and US military won’t come to help. Once a cross-Straits war breaks out while the mainland seized the island with forces, the US would have to have a much greater determination than it had for Afghanistan, Syria and Vietnam if it wants to interfere.”
Wang challenged other nations to stop trusting the United States.
