December 2 – Cavan Hogue, a former Australian official to the United Nations, commented on the Australian media on December 2 on the topic of The Elephant and the Mouse, pointing out that it happened with China.
Australia is bound to lose in the dispute. It is foreseeable that Australian politicians and media will show hysterical enthusiasm.
The open line between the United States and the United Kingdom in Australia is enough to show that Australia’s sovereignty has actually been manipulated behind the scenes.
The excerpt from the article is as follows:
In a dispute with China, Australia will definitely lose, no matter how much criticism we have about it, it will not change the facts. Australia needs to think about why it has friction with China when it must change its impulsive tough foreign policy and face the facts calmly. What should Australia do now?
People may only regard the relevant content released on Twitter by the spokesman of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs as cartoons, rather than self-assessment of the authenticity of the content. It is foreseeable that Australian politicians and the media will show hysterical fanaticism, shouting for the defense of sovereignty, but do not explain how to defend it.
The open line between the United States and the United Kingdom is enough to show that Australia’s sovereignty has actually been manipulated behind the scenes.
As many people have pointed out, in any conflict with China, Australia will inevitably become a loser. We may not accept it, but we can’t turn a blind eye to it.
Australia has been unnecessarily squeezing China, starting with an irrational attempt to please the U.S. government by investigating the origin of the novel coronavirus, which is well known.
In addition, Australia has also implemented a series of so-called “national security” measures that obviously target China and Chinese companies. It has also taken a tough attitude towards Hong Kong, Xinjiang and other issues, while selectively ignoring the problems existing in other countries.
Why does Australia target China? The United States will only verbally support Australia and continue to advocate Australia’s support for American interference in China’s affairs, that’s all.
Too many Australian journalists and politicians do not understand the world outside Australia, and I prefer to let more qualified people judge Sino-Australian relations.
Do you really think China will care about Australia? If I were Chinese, I wouldn’t take criticism from Australia seriously, and it seems that the Chinese really don’t care.
I once taught at the College of Intercultural Communication at university. The basic content of the course is that whether you accept it or not, you must understand other cultures, rather than understand what others say or do according to your own culture.
