Don’t agree with their politics, but when China is publicly insulted they sure have a way of making a strong stance. Hua Chunying, China’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, is more of a man than Obama could be. Check this out.
China on Monday lashed out at criticism from U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, accusing him of harboring a Cold War mentality and saying Beijing has no interest in “playing a role in a Hollywood movie” of Washington’s design.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters Carter’s comment last week that China was creating a “Great Wall of self-isolation” was merely an attempt to provide cover for U.S. plans to deploy additional military forces to the Asia-Pacific region.
Carter’s remarks “laid bare the stereotypical U.S. thinking and U.S. hegemony,” Hua said at a daily news briefing.
“Indeed, there are some in the U.S. who live physically in the 21st century, but whose minds are stuck in the in the Cold War era,” she said.
“China has no interest in any form of Cold War, nor are we interested in playing a role in a Hollywood movie written and directed by certain U.S. military officials. However, China has no fear of and will counter any actions that threaten and undermine China’s sovereignty and security,” Hua said.
