Implied Criticisms in Words and Actions under Friendly First Lady diplomacyPosted: March 28, 2014
It has been stressed that there is no politics in US first lady Michelle Obama’s China visit, but the arrangement of her last meal at a Tibetan restaurant gave China the message of US support for the Dalai Lama.
In return, Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan wrote four Chinese characters from a Chinese classic for the US first lady.
She gave the US the advice that only those with high virtues are able to bear great responsibilities, hinting that the US wants to bear the great responsibilities to be world leader but lacks the moral integrity to do so. It implies criticism of US bully of small and weaker countries in invading Iraq and Afghanistan, malpractices of tapping the telephone of not only common people but also foreign leaders, etc.
There were wars of words and implication in actions under friendly diplomacy.
