Comprehensive "engagement" has been a cornerstone of U.S. policy toward China since the Nixon administration. But the bedrock of Beijing's U.S. policy is paranoia over what Chinese leaders believe is a "peaceful evolution" conspiracy designed to overthrow the communist dictatorship via the ideological and spiritual infiltration of China's society.

China is challenging a key American policy toward Japan: the unambiguous U.S. support of Japan's sovereign rights to the Ryukyu island chain, including the key strategic island of Okinawa.

SEOUL — Secretary of State John F.

The Department of Education pulled a "Quote of the Day" by Chinese dictator Mao Zedong from its children's website Friday after a screenshot of the quote went viral.
Lei Feng, the famed half-real, half-fabricated communist model soldier — killed when a telephone pole fell on him more than 50 years ago — is making a dramatic comeback in China's cultural and political life, thanks to vigorous promotion by the Communist Party's new leader, Xi Jinping.
No one lives forever _ nor do they last forever. At least not without a lot of tuneups.
For some gun shop owners, President Obama's push to tighten Second Amendment rights isn't all bad. One New Hampshire gun store has a picture of the president, along with photos of two AK-47s, next to this banner in its front window: "Firearms Salesman of the Year," CBS reports.
Name-checking Borges, Foucault, P.T. Barnum, Stephen Pinker and Mao Zedong along the way, Dutch IM Willy Hendriks has written a chess instruction manual quite unlike any other in the literature.
Xi Jinping, anointed last month as China's new leader, was an impressionable 9-year-old in 1962 when his father, a prominent revolutionary and vice premier, fell out of favor with Mao Zedong.
He studied the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong — and agreed with many of their ideas.
