BR1 China Review News: A Prolonged Struggle for Oil between China and the U.S.

A recent China Review News article predicts a “prolonged struggle for oil between China and the U.S." It quotes Craig Roberts, a former senior U.S. Treasury official, in an interview with Middle Eastern media, “Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi has made two mistakes: He blocked the US Africa Command by not joining it and he let China make major energy investments in Libya instead." The author thus concludes that the motive for the U.S. to support the rebels in overthrowing the Qaddafi regime is to remove Chinese companies from Libya.

The article points to the global competition for oil between China and the U.S. “In the eyes of the U.S., China is vying for oil interests in the territory of U.S." “On the surface, there is no conflict between China and the U.S. on the Libya issue, but one may overlook the point that the current war in Libya is comparable to what the U.S. and U.K. did to Japan in the 1940’s. At that time, the U.S. and U.K. cut off Japan’s oil, rubber, and minerals, which caused the Pacific War in World War II. Now, the U.S., U.K., and France are doing the same to China." “In the future, China will inevitably compete with the U.S. for oil around the world. It is difficult to predict whether armed conflicts will occur."

BR2 Scholar Warns of Risks to Chinese Assets from Downgrade of U.S. Credit Outlook

In a recent interview regarding the downgrade of the U.S. credit outlook, Renmin University Professor Zhao Xijun warns that the book value of Chinese investments (in U.S. government debt) may incur a loss. “Although the U.S. government is not facing default on its debt, we should be on the alert, continue to diversify our investments, and take risk control measures as well."

BR3 VOA: Nearly Half of Australians View China as a Military Threat

While Australian Prime Minister Gillard is on an official visit to China for four days, from April 25 to 28, on April 25, the Lowy Institute, a leading international think tank, released a new poll. According to the poll, 44% of the respondents believed that China may become a military threat to Australia within the next 20 years; 87% of the respondents believed that, if China were to start a fight with the U.S., Australia might get involved because it is a close ally of the U.S.; 52% of the respondents said that they would support Australia to fight alongside the U.S. if a conflict explodes between North Korea and South Korea due to a North Korean provocation.

Although Gillard recently criticized China’s human right record when Jia Qinglin, a Politburo standing committee member and Chair of The Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference visited Australia, 58% of the respondents think Australia has not done enough to pressure Beijing on human rights.
