The recent China, a chameleon facing the world

Is China a

A chameleon is a kind of lizard whose skin changes colour to match the colour of its surroundings. Today, the analysts believe that China has successfully imitated the strategy of chameleons by discarding Chongqing Model represented by Bo Xilai, the former Communist Party Leader of China Chongqing.

The analysts believe this strategy of China works obviously quiet well, as people can see that the relationship between U.S. and China has turned into a new honey period since April of 2012, which is marked by following events:

1. In the nowadays dispute between China and Philippine on Huangyan Island (Panatag Shoal) in the South China Sea, U.S. has taken a neutral stand.

2. After the fourth-round of U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogues concluded in Beijing Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton expressed at a press briefing that U.S. welcomes a strong and prosperous China.

3. Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie arrived U.S. Friday for an official visit.

4. U.S. dealt flexibly with the Chen Guangcheng incident.

As we know, China is trying to switch its economic developing model from a rough and low technological one to a much healthy model that has high quality, high efficiency and low pollution. Obviously, China has realized that the Chongqing model represented by Bo Xilai would isolate China more in the world and block seriously China’s way to both obtain and export high technologies, which is essential to realize this model-switch.

The Analysts believe, China has still no willing to change much its political system, although U.S. has dreamed the change to happen in China for years. The reason for China is very simple: China has become and is still the second largest economic entity in the world, and the western countries have been still stuck in bad economies since 2008.

Recently by setting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao as a honey trap to the western world and by discarding the Chongqing model under the excuse of purging Bo Xilai, China is successfully lulling U.S. and widening a bit its way for new development. The chameleon’s way works, as long as only the analysts see Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao as a honey trap to U.S., but U.S. does not.
