China resumed exploration in the East China Sea.

China said on Friday it had every right to drill in the East China Sea close to waters disputed with Japan, adding that it did not recognize a "unilateral" Japanese median line setting out a boundary between the two in the waters.

Japan this week called on China to halt construction of oil-and-gas exploration platforms in the East China Sea 

China resumed exploration in the East China Sea two years ago, Japan said. In 2012, Japan's government angered China by buying a disputed island chain there from private owners.

China's position is that it had a 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone, and its continental shelf in the East China Sea extends to the Okinawa Trough, it added.

Apparently China thinks its the only nation with a 200 mile EEZ since they are ignoring everyone elses.

China is getting agressive in the area due to its desire to control oil & gas deposits...closer to home the better.

We, however, are making plans to operate out of Subic Bay in the Philippines; once again. The U.S. Pacific Fleet is gearing up.

We have found our new EVIL EMPIRE wherein, we can apply Reaganomics and spend globs of money on the next arms race.

It is more than just resources... The South China Sea sees about 5 trillion dollars in trade pass through the region. Secondly China is the one who mistakenly thinks an EEZ and artificial islands grant sovereign territory status when in fact it does not.

China turned itself into an evil empire. Trying to constantly blame the Us for other countries actions is sad and disingenuous and serves as a reminder that people should learn as much as they can about the given topic before trying to push the US evil empire drum beat.

Your naivety concerning the geopolitics of the last 30+ years is what is foolish and disingenuous. Ever since Bush Sr (41) was a special envoy to China in the '70s the U.S. & China have worked hand in hand. Bush had a Sunday dinner date with Mao ever week wherein, they strategized a mutually beneficial working relationship. Initially, to counter the U.S.S.R. and force it to exhaust its financial resources. And secondly, to grow the Chinese economy by off-shoring American manufacturing and apperal operations on a 49%(U.S.) /51% (Chinese) ownership deal for new Chinese factories. Bush Sr.'s brother Prescott Bush jr. is/was the head of the U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce. usatoday30.usatoday.com...
Bush Sr.'s son Neil Bush is also heavily involved... Mr. Neil Bush, chair of the Bush China U.S. Relations Conference. Neil Bush is the third son of George H.W. Bush, and brother to 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush, and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

The Evil Empire is a sham, a Potemkin Village allowing BOTH Gov'ts to bang their breastplates/war drums & validate and facilitate a defense spending economy (true Reagonomics). ALL WARS ARE ECONOMIC IN ORIGIN. They will play both ends against the middle.

Do not lecture me about being naive. I am quite aware of the machinations behind the State curtains.

For all countries named China, the zone is 200nm.
For all countries with a different name, it's whatever we allow.

carry on.
