Anything coming from Chinese media, which is state-controlled, must be treated with a great deal of skepticism. China has its own agenda, which is
very different from anyone else's, and the human and financial capital to back it up.
Why would they make this up? I confess, its not real clear, unless possibly simply to keep US prestige at a lower level in the eyes of the Chinese
population, or perhaps to keep China in the good graces of the Islamic world. It may suit Chinese interests to keep its various potential adversaries
at each other's throats, instead of paying attention to China.
