Chinese Media Says It's Time to "De-Americanize" the World

Posted by Paul Constant on Mon, Oct 14, 2013 at 1:29 PM

Agence France-Presse, via Yahoo News, says:

While US politicians grapple with how to reopen their shuttered government and avoid a potentially disastrous default on their debt, the world should consider 'de-Americanising', a commentary on China's official news agency said Sunday.

"As US politicians of both political parties (fail to find a) viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanised world," the commentary on state news agency Xinhua said..."A new world order should be put in place, according to which all nations, big or small, poor or rich, can have their key interests respected and protected on an equal footing."

Given the way everything seemed to fall apart this weekend, it's really hard to argue the American side of this debate right now.
