In a recent article, The Irish Sunday Times, a daily newspaper in Ireland, highlighted a recent editorial by the US State Department in which it criticised the use of anti-communist propaganda in China.
The article highlighted the Chinese Communist Party’s anti-US campaign in China, as well as the Chinese government’s “carpet bombing” of the US, as evidence of the use by China of “anti-Americanism” to “mobilise the masses”.
The editorial continued: “These are serious charges against China, and they are based on lies and propaganda.”
The State Department has also criticised “the Chinese government for using propaganda to demonise US interests in China”, in its annual human rights report.
In a follow-up article, the Irish Sunday Business Post, a weekly newspaper in Dublin, described how the State Department’s criticism of China’s use of “counter propaganda” and propaganda was “an insult to all citizens of the United States”.
The Irish paper went on to write that the US had “failed to live up to its own values” in the global fight against terror.
However, the US-China relationship is more complicated than the paper could ever explain.
China and the US share a “unique and enduring strategic relationship” in a number of areas, including the Indo-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
The State of the Indo Pacific article China is a vital part of the world economy and China is “a key economic partner of the USA”.
This relationship, and China’s continued dominance of the Indian Ocean region, are vital to the United Nations.
However the United states “failed” to uphold its international commitments on human rights and the promotion of democracy in the Middle East.
“We have no interest in the political system of Syria or in the democratic regimes in the Arab world, including Egypt, Jordan, and the UAE, which we consider as repressive and corrupt,” the US said in a statement when it declared the Muslim Brotherhood “un-Islamic” in 2011.
“It is our belief that these regimes are inherently hostile to the US and the global democratic order, and we will continue to fight for their overthrow.”
In response, Russia, a US ally and partner, “continues to support a ceasefire in Syria and calls for an end to the bloodshed”.
The United States has also maintained its support for Israel.
However it is “deeply concerned about the Syrian regime’s continued support for Hezbollah, which is considered a terrorist organisation by the United Kingdom, France, and Israel”.
China has a “very different relationship with Iran”, and China “has no desire to isolate Iran, or to confront the Iranian regime”, as the State of Asia, a regional security forum, has said.
The US has not been satisfied with China’s “good intentions”.
It has “deep concerns” about China’s alleged “coup” of China in the disputed South China Sea and has “strong concerns” that Beijing “continually undermines regional stability and international order”.
China is the world’s largest economy and is the second largest military power after the United US.
The Indo-Asian security partnership between India and the United Arab Emirates, for example, was a key pillar of US policy in the region.
India’s “deep commitment to regional stability” has been a cornerstone of US foreign policy for decades, with “American leadership” in Asia “an indispensable part of our security strategy”.
India and UAE are the only countries to have signed an international convention on terrorism and terrorism financing.
However there has been criticism of US efforts to support the Sunni Arab regimes in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, as part of a “war on terror”.
The State department has described the “war” in Syria as a “collateral damage” of a US-led “regime change” effort in the country, and has criticised China for “militarily supporting the Syrian government” and “inciting people against the Syrian people”.
However, China “continued to provide air support and humanitarian assistance to the Syrian Government and armed opposition”, and “was actively involved in supporting and supporting the ceasefire in the north of Syria”.
The US government has also accused China of supporting Houthi rebels in Yemen, and “conducting illegal military operations in Yemen”.
The state department has also condemned China for funding Islamist extremist groups in Yemen.
The United Nations has also repeatedly condemned China’s support for the Muslim Brothers in Syria.
The Obama administration “has taken a position that China must respect international law and abide by its obligations to respect the sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence and independence of the Republic of Yemen”, but “has also taken a different approach” in relation to Beijing’s support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq.
According to the State department, the United State has “made clear that we will not accept any country that engages in terrorist activities against Yemen’s civilian population”.
“We do not accept the use or threat of force against Yemen and will not tolerate
