originally posted by: XcathdraI don't want war with China, nor Russia, for that matter. However, when those 2 countries continue acting like asshats there comes a point where other nations are going to stand up to Russia and China and say no.


Neither do I, but isn't it funny how both Russia and China apparently can do no wrong whatsoever, and that it's the big bad USA who is to blame for everything wrong in the World today? Yet, we have never slaughtered millions and millions of our own people like both Russia and China have done.

It's something to consider. ~$heopleNation

The article simply expresses China's willingness to shoot down American spy planes and unwillingness to stop building in what it considers to be its own territorial waters. The US will not get involved in direct confrontation, but they may support a proxy war on behalf of the Philippines or even Viet Nam.

Philippines would lose any war instantly. They have basically no modern forces, much of their military is stuck in WWII. Many Filipino are very upset at their government asking the Americans to leave the Philippines because now China is bullying them.

Maybe if US just f*ked off and stayed home for once there wouldn't be constant conflict and media blitzing everywhere.

Absolutely pathetic they act as world police, but can't even stablaize their own country (I wonder why).

USA has no right to any Asian sea, or tell any other super power what they can or can't do. But again, global puppets and orchastration to keep masses in lower states of mind.

Yes, irony.But I'm sick of it.

Peace will never come trying to police the world while your own country is breaking it's own back.

Focus HOME, stop policing and warring for resources

So China starts conflict, and steals land from other countries, and the US is the bad guy.

So predictable.

i agree china is out of order,its no where near their land and they have no right over it,but my deep down thoughts in all
this is there seems to be a lot of country's gearing up for war,
almost like our imperial overlords are preparing for a population cull in many time zones,
but i dont think the people will be the sheep /lemmings of previous generations when state controlled media was running the show

Unfortunately China needs to back down or there will be war. War now is better than war later after they have further caught up to our military.

No war is of course best, where China makes a good neighbor.

Why is China wanting to expand its areas and show dominance over others? In the times of hypersonic tools, there is no need for building expensive island airports etc.

China should focus more on internal matters rather than trying to bully small nations in the region.

Hypersonic tools are unreliable and expensive. We're years from not needing airfields anymore.

China is doing what Russia is doing. Internal issues are present so russia and china create an external "threat" to divert attention. Chinas internal issue are serious and china is desperately trying to keep it clamped down so it does not spread. Link that to Chinas economic issue, with their growth now down to 7% from past double digit gains.

We saw iran do the same during their protests.. they are doing it now as well..

I knew we would find common ground eventually.

China is expansionist minded, Russia is not. That's because China is still living under a solid dose of communist leadership in power.

Russia is merely protecting its interests from external threats.

However, if China and US get into a fist fight, then Russia will have to helps its Chinese pals and end result would be "we are all screwed" over the stupid idea of airport strips in the middle of ocean.

It's a lot more than that. There are huge resource deposits under those islands they're building. Whoever controls the area is set for years as far as resources go.

No, its about control of the entire area, and the resources the area contains. It's a huge amount of money they are trying to steal from their neighbors. The airstrip itself only matters so much as it allows them more control of the resources/land/sea.

China is a world cooperative, they make majority of the things you use daily. They aren't meddling too much in other countries as extreme as US.

Nice downplay, if China stopped making product for US, you wouldn't be bitching about a tiny piece of land.

Alaska, Hawaii come to mind... hypocrisy, the American way.

What does Alaska or Hawaii have to do with China stealing land? Can you explain that?

Pretty sure the reference was to the annexation of Hawaii.
Not sure about Alaska.

Which voted to become a State.

Philippines was once an American territory. If Hawaii really wanted to it could have left American control.

Last I checked we did not create artificial islands around Hawaii to steal it's resources. Nor in Alaska.

Quite a while after it was annexed.

Not really. There were attempts after the overthrow. But the control didn't really originate from the US government, it was a group of magnates. It really was a pretty sordid affair.

In any case, relating the global politics of more than 100 years ago to those of today is pretty pointless.

But it did vote to become a State. Just recently PR had a vote and if they wanted independence it would have been granted. It may have been sordid 100 years ago, but the recent history of HI is not.

Alaska was outright purchased.
