Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen recently took advantage of the Chinese media to publicly express his loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party, vowing to welcome Chinese investment in its occupied areas and vowing to protect the safety of Chinese investment and personnel. Hu Xijin, the president of the official media Global Times, was overjoyed and declared in a high-profile Weibo post that this was a defeat of the trillion-dollar U.S. war in Afghanistan, but also a victory of the Chinese Communist Party’s diplomacy, etc.
Americans have never made a secret of the fact that this protracted war is not a victorious war, and that the U.S., regardless of political elites and public opinion, has clearly denied the function of war to solve political problems over the years. Indeed, this is the most fundamental reason for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
In layman’s terms, the self-correcting function of American politics and society has so far remained sound, always daring to face up to any problem, including its own mistakes.
Hu Xijin’s giddy response to the olive branch thrown by the Taliban is, I can basically understand, a fundamental part of China’s official perception. This is not just because of Hu Xijin’s special status, but because over the years, China’s official value system has always regarded uniting all the rogues in the world against the United States as a basic state policy.
But at this point, I’m sweating for Hu’s editor-in-chief. The party’s convention is, I can do it, but you can’t say it. And Hu Xijin’s giddy cheer is basically the equivalent of making a big deal out of the fact that the party and the Taliban are hooked up to the world! That’s a sign of leaking state secrets. Making the party unhappy for a moment means that the party will make you unhappy for the rest of your life. Editor-in-chief Hu apparently forgot the lesson of Pan Hannian. Pan Hannian and Zhou Enlai relationship is very iron Oh, Hu editor-in-chief, who are you and iron relationship?
Hu’s editor-in-chief is a senior official of the government media, an executive-level official, a senior cadre according to the administrative system of the Communist Party, a pillar of the party and state. But I think it is very necessary to popularize the basic common sense of being a human being to the editor-in-chief Hu again.
In the Rites of the University, it is said that those who want to rule their country should first reorganize their families; those who want to reorganize their families should first cultivate their bodies; and those who want to cultivate their bodies should first correct their minds. The extreme goodwill shown by Hu’s editor-in-chief toward the Taliban makes me understand that Hu’s heart is obviously not right.
Even Deng Xiaoping, the party-state grandee, had sternly admonished the party during his lifetime, which translated means: don’t be the boss of the little rascals. But Xi Jinping is clearly not convinced that he wants to be the boss!
If we look deeper into the logic of Hu’s editor-in-chief, we will also find that this is not really a personal problem for him. The model war-wolf diplomacy of Yang Jiechi, Wang Yi and Zhao Lijian all show that, against the background of increasing vigilance in Europe and the United States, it is an inevitable choice for the CCP to pull in a few rogues from Putin to Jin Sanfang, from the Burmese army chief to the Taliban to embolden them.
But as the old Chinese saying goes, “Things come in groups, people come in groups.
Over the years, the Taliban have committed numerous crimes against humanity, from human bombs on innocent civilians to kidnapping children as cannon fodder, and their brutality is more often directed at their own countrymen, a fact very similar to the CCP’s own history.
Since the CCP opened its boats in Shanghai in 1921, its 100-year business history has been a dark history of slaughtering its own compatriots, and even comrades, from beginning to end.
From the massacre of village gentry and peasants in the Jiangxi Soviet, to the looting along the 25,000-mile Long March, from the preservation of strength and land grabbing in the rear of the eight-year war of resistance, to the tens of millions of national corpses in the Communist civil war, to the physical annihilation of millions of landlords and rich peasants in the land reform, to the famine caused by the anti-rightist movement and the Great Leap Forward, and the extermination of millions of intellectuals in the Cultural Revolution, both the means of massacre and the total number of victims are unparalleled by the Taliban. The Taliban are beyond the reach of the Taliban.
Therefore, whether from historical sources or real evidence, we can clearly see that the logic of the Party and the Taliban sympathizing with each other, that is, the story of the king’s eight looking at the green beans, that is, the right eyes. As for Hu Xijin, he just grabbed the ass of the big leader for fear of being robbed by Zhao Lijian and others.
But the good thing about this world is that there is still a difference between right and wrong. It has been proven time and again that neither the Chinese Communist Party nor the Taliban will follow good advice, and the free world is no longer under any illusion about it.
But it would obviously be foolish for the free world in Europe and the United States to underestimate the impact of this. According to the Party’s propaganda discipline, Hu Xijin’s high profile is just a voice on command. And if Europe and the United States still wishfully believe that concessions and appeasement can induce the CCP to be benevolent, they are basically making fools of themselves. Hong Kong has already fallen, Xinjiang is disastrous. The wolf is really coming, don’t be naive, the sympathy in the blood light makes us shudder.
