Well maybe China is just trying to match America in saying that we aren't the only country that can say it how it is. i mean America has had a pre-emptive policy for years. It's astonishing to me how the American government seems to think they are the only ones in the world that should be allowed to do anything.
Good example of this would be the maritime laws. If we come close to Chinese waters with a warship and they issued a warning Amerca would basically state the party line of these are International waters and we can do whatever we want. If Chine had a warship near US waters the American government would freak and start screaming threats.
America is the king of double standards and this is coming from an American. Just my two-cents
