If China's image abroad is quite negative, WE SHOULD MAINLY BLAME OURSELVES.
Our ability to argue is very poor, so we can't even show the fact to the world.

Chinese Foreign Minister and Commerce Minister need to learn more how to argue, since they are always under heavy attacks from America.

Chinese experts, scholars, and media (including Chinadaily) should also learn more how to argue, in a polite language.

Look at how several foreigners can make a so beautiful argument for China. Here is some of them :

1) China's Currency Is Not Our Problem ( http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/1 ... ?_r=1&src=twrhp )

2) Who Says China Grows at Others' Expense ( http://www.cnbc.com/id/41114440 )

3) Prepping Minds for War Against China ( http://www.pakalertpress.com/201 ... -war-against-china/ )

While ChinaDaily has make a huge contribution for the country, but by learning more how to argue politely, ChinaDaily will has a golden chance to contribute more for the Motherland.

ChinaDaily's response in this article will be a great honor for all of forum members here. Thanks.......

Apart from being assertive, perhaps young & promising Chinese politicians should learn how to debate &
win. In the West politicians & business  leaders are trained to argue their case in debates.
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

An excellent point.

If China wouldn't always play the guilty angry child when there's a problem (like for instance some protests in France or some weappon sales to Taiwan), it would be respected much more.
So instead of taking political measures against the USA or Europe (or any other country that it currently feels unhappy with), the PRC should just make them look stupid themselves if they are claiming wrong things.

For instance, if protestors in France scream "Free T..1.b3t", China shouldn't just say "let's punish France!" but rather ignore it.
Then when the leaders are asked about it at a press conference, they should not act angrily, but politely explain that half of the population living up there are Han-Chinese, that the people there have actually more rights than ordinary Han and that there is absolutely no point in tearing a country apart and therefore break up many families just because of some people who have never been there and still think it was the same situation like 50 years ago.

Then, China would suddenly be the "victim" of the bad protestors' demagogue.

But if the country trys to punish and act angrily, it looks like it is guilty and everyone believes the protestors are right...

Quite right.

I think many Chinese resort to foul language and aggressiveness because they have not learnt the skill of being assertive and to debate.
Let the dice fly high
