Sure. The Chinese public needs to get familiar with famous foreign people.

n 1780, Arnold was given command of West Point, the American fort on the Hudson River in New York (and future home of the United States Military Academy, established in 1802). Arnold contacted Sir Henry Clinton, head of the British forces, and proposed handing over West Point and its men. On September 21 of that year, Arnold met with British Major John Andre and made his traitorous pact, in which the American was to receive a large sum of money and a high position in the British army. However, the conspiracy was uncovered and Andre was captured and killed. Arnold fled to the enemy side and went on to lead British troops in Virginia and Connecticut. He later moved to England, though he never received all of what he’d been promised by the British. The former American hero and patriot died in London, in relative obscurity, on June 14, 1801.

Maybe China should name a street in Beijing, Benedict Arnold Street?

Should be mentioned to City planning in Beijing

To name a Washington street "Liu Xiaobo Street" hardly can be qualified as an "insult" to anyone;  ...
"To name a Washington street "Liu Xiaobo Street" hardly can be qualified as an "insult" to anyone; if anything, it is an HONOUR."

Who are they HONOURING?  Surely you don't mean they are honoring the Chinese people?
