Chinese officials: U.S. using 'economic terrorism' in trade conflict 

By Clyde Hughes 

May 30 (UPI) -- Chinese officials said Thursday the Trump administration's efforts in the two nations' ongoing trade dispute amounts to "economic terrorism." 

Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Hanhui leveled the remarks at U.S. officials -- an assessment foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang agreed with. 

"I could not agree more with Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Hanhui and don't see anything hard to comprehend," Lu said. 

"The U.S. unilateralism and bullying practices in the international arena, including in economic and trade relations with other countries, show clearly that it is undermining the existing international rules. ... It has indeed inflicted serious harm on other countries." 

The Communist Party-run People's Daily said in a commentary Thursday U.S. "greed" and its failing to honor past trade agreements hurts Washington's reputation among the international community. 

"The credibility of the U.S. is being gnawed away by the bad faith of some Washington politicians, which has been broadly perceived by people around the world," it said. "If these politicians continue acting this way, it won't be long before the U.S. is trapped in grave peril." 

The trade conflict has been going for a year and has heightened tensions recently with new tariffs on both sides. Trade negotiations have also broken down. 

Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif used similar "economic terrorism" language when describing U.S. sanctions this week.

“Do you believe in life after delivery?”

In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”
