The contradictions between China and United States are the background to the current Korean conflict "the kill the Korean chicken to scare the Chinese monkey" policy of the United States is not only dangerous it is outrageous and must be exposed at all opportunities.

The Chinese speaker in this video is Lanxin Xiang.
