In a strongly-worded editorial today, sprinkled with humor (intended?) and innuendo, the Chinese-language Global Times newspaper criticizes "the West" for its "selfishness" during United Nations climate talks in Durban, South Africa. The editorial's points and criticisms center on the debate at Durban (and ongoing) over whether China can and should still be regarded as a "developing nation" (More: http://bit.ly/s91PUm). One of the more amusing rhetorical devices: "In Western society there is a very common habit, which is that men and women both change their clothes at least once a day, or at least change one item of clothing. In China, very few people have this habit, because people don't have that many clothes, and they can't use that much water, electricity and laundry detergent, to make themselves over freshly every day."

In what has been the most violent skirmish so far between Chinese fisherman and South Korean coast guard, one South Korean officer was killed yesterday and a second injured in an attack by a Chinese boat captain as coast guard tried to stop the Chinese boat.

QQ.com, one of China's most popular web portals, has a special page today aggregating coverage of this story, leading with a notice from China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs urging South Korean authorities to treat the Chinese boat captain humanely and protect his rights.
