A group of blind people, ridiculous! Our territory we have the right to use them, and now we stand on each other's point of view to think that if your country's territory is violated by others, but also to help other countries to interfere in your heart how to think? What is your attitude? East and West are two completely different civilizations, you across the Pacific to Asia Why make trouble? Do not, and I said yes to peace, which is a lie fills five thousand years of Chinese culture to tell you, the Chinese people than any other country in the world love peace. But they should not look down on China, China will not take the initiative to stir up trouble, but there is an enemy to invade, we will unite against the enemy. Since the establishment of the new China, the Chinese people will know, we like to treat for peace, but we are definitely not as afraid of bullies. The Japanese never knew recognize the error, you actually also helped Japan to combat China. You really wrong, really wrong. If one day, our two countries go to war, then war! Even if we had been friends, but, for the country, I had to fight!

The fact that the Obama Administration has chosen to turn a blind eye to China's aggressive efforts to seize territory, that it clearly does not own, is incredibly disturbing. George Bush erred in trying to make the US the policeman of the world while Obama has gone to the opposite extreme by refusing to stand firm, with our allies, by defending them against bullies such as China.

America needs to wake up to the Chinese threat. China is aggressively moving on many fronts to seize power, influence and resources around the world. They seem not to be bound by morality, or justice, or international law. The goal is to secure China as the strongest world power and no means, fair or foul, is left unused. And with no other world power willing to oppose their actions, China is proving itself to already be in the driver's seat. Only Viet Nam has the guts to actively oppose what the Chinese are doing. The Philippines, Korea, Japan, etc. look to the US to save them but the US is in such debt to China it cannot rock the boat.

China knows that realistically no one has the balls to oppose them so they continue their march to dominate the rest of the world. And with Russia now joining forces with China we have two powerful countries which routinely flout international law and are willing to violate the sovereignty of other countries to get what they want..

And as the news story points out, the US is not even willing to engage in dialogue (much less oppose China) over the China's actions toward Viet Nam. Evil is on the rise and there is no one, with any power, who is willing to oppose it.. We live in a frightening world.
