I am using Chrome, but also run AdBlock, so no, I can't read the article. I am willing to accept that to stop the ads.
No, China is not looking to improve relationships. It operates from a position of strength against the U.S.

how so? Chinas export economy is being obliterated and unemployment is skyrocketing
social stability would "improve" if China / US relations "normalized"

Interesting. But I wish they'd stop using "direct" and "nonstop" interchangeably. It's confusing. A direct flight means you don't have to change planes, but it can have many stops (technically, a direct flight retains the same flight number through multiple stops). Nonstop is the one that doesn't stop. LAX-DFW-JFK, on the same plane, would be a direct flight. LAX-JFK is a nonstop. The DFW-JFK portion of the former would be a nonstop.

I know it's a bit pedantic, but Confucius said, "Wisdom begins with calling things by their right names." OK, maybe he didn't say, but he should have! lol.

Like the UAL flights HNL <-> GUM. You have 2 choices. Both choices are direct; 1 choice is a non-stop (often a 777) and the other (the Island Hopper, a 737) has 4 or 5 stops (all the same flight number). BIG Difference!

No. In US, “direct” means same flight number. I had a direct Denver to Bangkok. We changed aircraft in Seattle and Tokyo. You can miss your connection on a direct flight.
