U.S. And China Entering New Cold War?

Relations between the two powers are becoming increasingly strained due to Chinese territorial claims in the South China Sea.

Over the course of the last year and a half, China has reclaimed 2,000 acres of land from the sea, constructing man-made islands from a number of submerged reefs, writes David Pilling for The Financial Times. The work is being carried out to strengthen Beijing’s territorial claims in the region, which are disputed by a number of countries.

China attempting to boost territorial claims

Both the Philippines and Vietnam have rival claims to the Spratly Islands, which are located near China’s new facilities. Beijing has seen fit to construct piers, harbors and multistorey buildings, as well as a 3 kilometer runway which can handle every type of military aircraft which its forces currently possess.

Such a surge in activity has not gone unnoticed by other nations which maintain territorial claims. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, president of the Philippines, used a recent speech in Tokyo to liken China’s land reclamation program to the Nazi annexation of Czechoslovakia.

The U.S. has spoken out in defense of its regional allies, and defense secretary Ashton Carter said that China’s actions are “out of step” with international norms. He maintained that the U.S. would “fly, sail and operate” according to international law, and denied that “turning an underwater rock into an airfield” would strengthen Beijing’s claims of sovereignty.

Nor would the action restrict any other nation’s right to pass through the area, Carter said. He later called on all claimants to end any land reclamation programs in the South China Sea.

Is China acting illegally?

Although Carter certainly appears to talk a good game, it may transpire that the U.S. cannot ultimately do very much at all to control the situation. U.S. military planes keep flying over China’s new islands, with little effect. Beijing is still building despite U.S. opposition, and there remains a danger that China continues to successfully call Washington’s bluff.

The difficulties in the South China Sea arise from the fact that China is not actually doing anything illegal. Both the Philippines and Vietnam have also reclaimed land, just not to the extent that China has.

Furthermore legal experts maintain that China’s claim to the Spratly Islands may be of some substance. Although the Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia are all closer to the islands than China, one lesson that can be learned from the Falklands/Malvinas controversy between the UK and Argentina is that proximity is not a decisive factor.

Beijing also continues to toe the line regarding freedom of navigation, although it does seek to restrict military activity in the waters that it claims. On this point Beijing may contravene international law due to the fact that it is attempting to extend these restrictions to man-made islands. Controversy arose recently when the Chinese navy told a U.S. military surveillance plane to leave the area near the newly constructed islands, but it is not clear how far the U.S. is willing to go to stand up to increasing levels of Chinese aggression.

Risk of escalation in the area

Officials have previously considered sending warships to within 12 miles of the artificial islands, and may feel obliged to follow through on that threat. Such a move could lead to escalation in the area, given the likelihood that China responds by sending its own warships.

Another way that China could raise the stakes in the South China Sea is by declaring an air defense identification zone over all or part of it, which would theoretically mean that incoming aircraft would have to report their presence to Beijing.

Should relations between the two powers descend into a game of bluff, analysts believe that China may outlast the U.S. Commentators have noticed a pattern in Beijing’s actions, involving picking fights over small matters which the U.S. may concede. However a steady buildup of such seemingly trivial matters contributes to an increasingly strong challenge to U.S. primacy in the region.

Chinese strategy proving successful thus far

According to Australian academic Hugh White, Beijing is engaged in a plan to cut “very thin slices of a very long sausage.” That sausage takes the form of a resetting of relations between China and the U.S., one which would grant Beijing greater respect and power in the region. Chinese president Xi Jinping has already expressed a desire for a new “great power relationship” in Asia.

Although such a development would not constitute a threat to U.S. global hegemony, it would present a significant challenge in Asia. China believes that it should be considered at least an equal in the region.

Ongoing developments in the South China Sea are a key part of such a strategy. Security expert Carl Thayer writes that “China has changed ‘facts on the ground’ and presented the region with a fait accompli”. The U.S. is now finding out that it is impossible to take any great action when faced with faits accomplis like the artificial islands.

  1. Eddie Isles, if you ever meet a person who will buy my screenplay or can be a connection to a person who will buy my screenplay, then I promise in writing that I will give you 5% of the sale price, even in cash so you will not pay taxes.

  2. China is huge and has military might. Smaller countries can be as strong as China if Philippines, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam form like NATO and develop advance depensive military weapon. and talk to China for a military exercises one at a time to make peace with our neighbor and talk for a partnership with all the island to be part of the new group called USACHINARUSSIA partnership. If US, China and Russia approved the new group, there will be no cold war in Asia. The new group will benefit USA, China, and Russia economically . This is just my opinion.

  3. You have spread lies. The map that Angela Merkel gave to Xi was a French cartographer made map that shows a China much more smaller than it is today: No Tibet, no Taiwan, no East Turkestan (Xin-Jiang), etc. Had China been a “peaceful place” as you said, how on Earth the Chinese fled China for hundred of years to this day. Never saw a Chinatown somewhere near your town??????

  4. now I know exactly who you are, you are so jealous, Why ??? it is better keep the head down as you assumed, but you don’t know what you said, parrot !!! because your head are stuffed with all scraps from your childhood, sorry for your damaged mind, I am not so proud of kissing stinking asses like you did. but you should choose which ass to kiss or you contaminate your mouth with the stinking scraps, be loved. In summary, I can not talk and share with a PARROT’s thoughts. no more talking.
    standbyer, signing o…u….t….. Kim jong RyouSure,,, Please no more comment………

  5. indeed revolution is about to happen here in USA when 99%vs1% Wallstreet occupiers movement started it. That was the turning point of this great nation to me. I went to China right after occupier movement and asked cab drivers there if they hate the rich…..none of them do? and all want to get rich! that’s a country and people with bright future!
    I am angry with liberals like yourself who love to label others and picking problems that never intend to solve them. No one can change a liberal so keep your head between where your aaass is!

  6. Hey, RyouSure, why are you so angry what I wrote, I might be blinded in what I saw, but it is my thought, you are so defended. that is your job !!!! I have some Chinese friends at work and school, all of them were asked ” do you intended to go back to China”, they answered “yes, as a visitor”, do they tell a lie??
    thank you for your advise about my diet. all ingredients coming here must be inspected and checked before going out in public. in the Chinese market, the food we choose to eat, it is not my choice, but from the experience of Chinese housewives. what are wrong with them, “avoid Chinese products”
    I am not against Chinese products, but here, beside American food there are food around the world so many varieties of food and dishes, Chinese food is one of them as long as it is proved to be safe according FDA. one food I eat maybe one month later, I may use them again if I like it, if not, forget ir. If It make me choke, I sue them in the court and get my settlement, I remember a women got burnt by the hot coffee at McDonald, on her thigh. even her fault, her settlement is about $75,000 for her “loss”. so making business with capitalists must be caution. who losses if “choke” !!! you know nothing about Capitalism except hearing from the propaganda machine in China by Communist Liars, just hear but never process the info. don’t be a parrot.
    usually, the poor hates the rich, so there is a revolution erupted, I don’t like not hate the rich, I have to live along with them, and together make this country flourished. there is no hatred between us. but in Communist world is different. they cause more hatred and angry between them, that is why I smell your angry and hatred in your tone. You talk of Capitalism, really but in your communist world, There is another upgraded class called “RED CAPITALISTS”, you know that. In Capitalism, you must choose between politics or business, you cannot have both. your choice. If you choose politics, you must be replaced after two terms, you know, if a person is in power so long he will become a dictator. in capitalism we must avoid that situation. In communist, why is called upgraded class “RED CAPITALISTS”, because they are both in political power and in business. he is untouchable (as communist doctrines) and he is in power until he is getting old, while become a mighty dictator as Mr, Xi is doing now, he want all power in his hand. that, you see that. (I don’t care, it is not my business) good luck with your Communism, I stick with mine.
    you are so angry, why???? you are stuffed with non-sense in your head, that is why whatever you look is full of angry and hatred. I was taught to be friendly in school, I don’t hate people but only to select who to be with. I like China products, but I have to select them, I am not be blinded with the word “nationalism” that will blind people in somebody’s advantage, I have my choice, You do too?
    you are a businessman, you wish your customer get hurt because your hatred, who makes you so angry and hatred, not me, not capitalism, or any reasons,… you should blame on your regime where you are. they teach you hatred, nationalism, the rich, and every where is your enemies. all is propaganda, a huge propaganda machine “absolutely loyal to Party and Government” you see something wrong in here, they talk about them not about China. I am full of their scrap,
    standbyer singing o…u….t, (I like the words of Sky Clark)

  7. now you sound like a sour grape redneck refusing the simple fact that I am enjoying SoCal, southern California, life style with many of my friends who got 10 years visa, thanks to Uncle Sam, sending their kids to schools in USA ( currently 350,000 Chinese students in US ) and buying up top neighborhood houses just to stay a couple months here to cleanse their lungs from pollution back home as you believe so passionately. I have made it in America through hard and smart work so have many of my friends, none Communist high echelons, in China made it even better and more thanks to Capitalism wild, wild west in China last 30 years and still is. Sure there are lots of corruptions in China that I personally encountered too but they are limited to under the table which pales to our systemic legal corruptions by lobbying groups. While you enjoy your meals, pls avoid pizza and bread cs yeast power is from China so is garlic powder, fish filets are processed in China, shrimps are farmed in China, ingredients of vitamin supplements are from China. Don’t eat out at all cs most certainly something is from China there. You may have only Wholefood Market to shop. Pls don’t choke on chips and crackers if I tell you that Japan supplies the best and most MSG that you taste on those snacks.

  8. after 40 year, society must change. you compare your life with the one way back 40 year ago, of course it changes. but you just compare it horizontally it means you just see back of 40 years from now and you felt comfortable with it. when you turn vertically, meaning left and right your shoulders what you see. where I live, whoever I am, I still enjoy their lives freely. In Black and white color there is a color of gray in between. in a society, there are so many corrupted who all belong to the communist members if in power, they are untouchable. as a rule, you can accuse any one but them. they are a pure bred, You know how many corrupted that Mr. Xi announces on papers. With so many corrupted Members are in power and rule the country so long, what happened with that society, that is why, you just see a bit of change in your life in 40 years if not, you will see a huge change in your society. Do you see gray color in your society? if there is, they must be relatives or partners of the ruling party. how about those who are not relating the them. answer yourself. it is not my business.
    Thank you for your offer, I am fine with where I live. I want to eat real food, drink pure water, not plastic one or contaminated source of water or twisted food by unlicensed Chinese food processors, no fetus, no unknown food….. Let me live a little longer. what I see, pictures of food took by real Chinese people in real China, give me a creep. How do you live a life with more caution in eating and drinking. I use that time to make money and buy real food from US and Japan and ENJOY my meal.

  9. Standbyer, I came from China 30 some years ago and now comfortably retired in SoCal. I am a businessman and a landlord. China with 1.5 billion population, territory similar to USA, must have problems and societal ills, just like what we have here in USA that incarcerates more people than any country. From a poor 3rd world country 40 years ago when hunger was still lingering around in places, China has emerged to a world economic super power today that makes many of people like you very uncomfortable or simply lost driven in sane. Any government that can provide food, cloths, housing, healthcare and education to 1.5 billion people is a good political body, Communist, Capitalist, Socialist that is we are today, dictatorship….whatever……..! when I first came to America, I was not proud of China or being a Chinese, but I am now very proud of what Chinese people have done to China despise many disadvantages of single political party system.
    Did I disappoint you? if so, I suggest that you go to China and see for yourself!

  10. you guess too much, RyouSoue. sometimes I have to admitted to consider you as a toad (uglier than frog) in the well, all you can see is a blue sky circle above your head. poor guy, I am very sorry for your loss of sight. all you said is 100 % true and only true as long as I Live in your LIFE in CHINA. With all malpractices and mistreatments, confusion, fetus eaters as recalled somewhere, where the Strong and the Rich dominates all thought and your action…. You know nothing about the world around you except the one called ” Chinese world” where you live full of liar and deceit. you talk when they allow you to talk controlled by communist Idiots from the propaganda machine where they are considered themselves as gods ” in the name of Chinese people … ” ” in the light of the Communist Party I order you to ….” you knew what are wrong with those. I am full of their crap, wake up, RyouSoue, do something for yourself, when I write I write with my thought and my feelings, not my word, how about you, you write something with you word first and your thought later, is it true. sorry for your twisted thought, be a good boy, listen to you communist bosses tell you before you write or you lose you allowance. 5 cent per comment ???? cheap …..but decent jobs.
    you worship the word “Chinese” too much. you were taught in China, or wherever you are. maybe it is holy word, in your Chinese word, but outside your word, wake up man, It means NOTHING to the world I live. To tell you a secret of mime, Your “Chinese boss” can not afford me, I don’t work cheap. In china, he can pay ten people in one hour, here where I live, with the same money, he just pay me for one hour. remember only ONE HOUR, I already tell you, I don’t work cheap !!! That is why I don’t see any “Chinese boss” around my city where I live. Sorry for your delusion fetched by your Chinese boss. And your Chinese bosses as you mentioned above , are confined in Family business where they can exploit their own relatives or illegal Chinese immigrants. “Stich to their own kind” , that is what they say, because they cannot afford to hire someone beside their own kind. You know what I mean……once more time, I am very sorry for your blind eyes as a toad in the well.
    now talking about “Chinese Landlord” I, again, tell you another secret. “landlord” is nothing to us. I live a place where people with jobs can live a good live, it is house. as a see, you seem to me, you never live in your house in your live but ” with landlord” Ohhhhh !!! sorry I can not bear the idea to live with “Chinese boss” they are terrible. everywhere you see, it is abnormal, 95% you can guess there lives “C…. people”, don’t be offended, they live around. They can live in the hotel, apartment or motel ….. in the city, around those places, there are clothes hanging everywhere, they use open space to dry their clothes. Forget it, don’t tell me I am evicted by Chinese landlord. Open your eyes.
    Chinese Dentists or Pharmacist, do not confuse them with yours in China, They seem to be Chinese, but not “true” Chinese like you in China. They are very kind and professional. I don’t let you blacken them with your twisted and dirty mind. Leave them alone, will you.
    I must disappoint you for your stupid advise. with my freedom, I choose to stay this place where I say what I say, live a life what I want, and do what I want without to see the change of their face … if you have a chance to flee, come here to see for yourself. one thing I need to remind you. When you talk to me, talk like a free man, not like a parrot, I need to see your true thought, don’t be blinded by some arrogant liar. do exchange the thought, not criticize each other, If don’t, this is the last time to talk, no more. I don’t want to waste my time, with idiot who have sold themselves for money online. I don’t work CHEAP.

  11. Stop being such a jackass. You are just repeating Uncle Sam’s lies. “Arrogant and Stupid people”!! That is what the politicians in Washington D.C., especially Ashton Carter.
    “As Japan did that to China in WW II”!!! Wasn’t that truth!!!!!
    And you are blaming China???? What kind of logic is this???

    “Those small countries in Southwest Asian, they are crying for help and China laughs at them, What those idiots !!! you think a big bully like China never cry?” Oh!!! yes!!! Definitely. China cried a lot from the early 1800s to 1945, as Japan and the Western powers plundered, killed, raped, destroyed all over China.
    “China was under Japanese bully”, and now, Uncle Sam is pushing and wanting Japan to do the same again and again!!!!
    Now, who is/are the bullies???

    “The Ching dynasty Library. was destroyed by Chinese Communist people…” Great!!!! No Chinese should be able to lay eyes on such a miserable and arrogant people as the Manchu. I applaud their decision to destroy it.

    “Tell me who is “Brainwashed and pawn””. I have told you many many times. Americans, all brainwashed and conditioned from birth to death as pawns, puppets and being led by the nose by Uncle Sam.

    “Tell me who is “Brainwashed and pawn”. Talk like a parrot , act like a parrot …..Once again, correct me if I wrong, and sorry again, I am not Chinese.” yes, I know. You are a true American, brainwashed and conditioned from birth to death as pawns, puppets and being led by the nose by Uncle Sam.

    “you dare to say what you want to say or you must wait for your instruction from your arrogant Communist leader in propaganda machine give you some policy to talk.” I speak as I please, and speak the truth, and nothing but the truth. I live in California and I AM an American citizen. And I have served in the U.S. Army!!!!

    ” I know your situation in china, you only talk when you are told to do so.” Oh!!! boy!!!! What a bunch of bullshit!!!! You don’t know what the hell you are talking about!!!!!

    “as a parrot or a parakeet in the propaganda machine.” That is exactly what you are. You have no idea what the outside world is like, and you’re talking like a chicken without a head.

  12. what I am saying is the truth about Chinese communist Trash, They are a gang of Arrogant and Stupid people. you try to tell me to watch military channel. I don’t think you watch it yourself. what you have done in South china Sea as Japan did that to China in WW II, You tell me those small countries in Southwest Asian, they are crying for help and China laughs at them, What those idiots !!! you think a big bully like China never cry? Wrong !!! don’t you see your mighty China still know how to cry too, on news, China are begging and whining for an apology from Japan because at that time China was under Japanese bully. so what you do at that time, laughing or begging. I see you laugh at Asian Countries today or you just like them at the WW II, cried out loud, why did you cry out loud because you are as weak as they are (Asian Countries). you know what Japan called Chinese people at that time, I don’t want to put it in word. Watch the Channel yourself, and learn your own history so you remembered who you were at that time. But I don’t think you have you history to learn because all your history have gone with the Cultural Revolution in 1960 (sorry I might be wrong, because I am not Chinese, forgive me please) what you have learn today only a fiction book of your history or an imaginary invention of history of your great Communist leaders. a question for you what is the biggest library in the world was destroyed recently by it own people? Irony, The Ching dynasty Library. was destroyed by Chinese Communist people who did not want their own Chinese to know their mighty past but cheap history was invented by a communist government. what a liar and idiot!!
    you don’t have your own history book, but when you talk as if you have one. Tell me who is “Brainwashed and pawn”. Talk like a parrot , act like a parrot …..Once again, correct me if I wrong, and sorry again, I am not Chinese.
    You are like a toad in the well, and see the world though the opening of the well. I can say what I want to say myself. how about you, you dare to say what you want to say or you must wait for your instruction from your arrogant Communist leader in propaganda machine give you some policy to talk. so who is “a complete brainwashed pawn”, I am used to your accusation. I know your situation in china, you only talk when you are told to do so. Think it over, man, sorry you are not a man, my bad. you are considered yourself as a parrot or a parakeet in the propaganda machine. you just repeat what they teach you to talk and try to imitate the words they put in your head. is that true ???
    those word you say about WU-14, … how big your army is compared to the One in WW II, you want to be like German or Japan. go ahead, your bully expansionists, don’t forget to write your apology and put it at Bejing in case you need it in the future as Japan should have done one in WW II .
    next time, write to me as a human being does, not a parrot, thank you.

  13. Standbyer, you got one screw loose up there by repeating yourselves on bashing China made goods and China stealing techs. True some low quality merchandises made in China are in dollar stores and fleet markets but majority of them are mainly marketed to S. America countries. I bet you 100% of all US corporate retail stores selling only US companies labeled products made in China. China factories would not make low quality goods if there is no buyers, right? supply and demand, should I give you a lesson of ECON 101?
    Today, there are more innovations and new products debuting in China than in USA since top 100 US companies are manufacturing and marketing in China. Stealing techs, no we hand them over on a silver platter……! I don’t understand your anger towards Chinese, did you get fired by a Chinese boss? Were you evicted by a Chinese landlord? did you Chinese dentist pull a wrong tooth from your mouth? or you were given wrong prescription by a Chinese pharmacist? and your English tells me that you are not American educated. I suggest that you leave USA cs China made goods are staying going no where…..!

  14. German chancellor Merkel presented to Chinese president Xi during his recent visit, map of China drafted in 1735 by Germans, 13 million square miles of territory vs 9.6 million today. China will expand economically, not militarily, its power beyond its historic territory and world will be a better, more peaceful place that America and the west have failed to do.

  15. Man!!! your post is full of ignorance.
    Your are what is known as a complete brainwashed pawn and idiot!!!!

    I have told you how I know about Genglis Khan. Watch the military channel. The maker of the program even demonstrated how the Mongols made their “hand grenade” very much like today’s hand grenade.

    There was another program on how the Turks made the biggest cannon in the world, even by today’s standard. That cannon is still available for the general public to see.

    Have you been reading the newspaper recently????
    China test fired a WU-14 to back up Genera Gan’s meeting with Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter in Washington D.C. to show China will NOT back down from the building of artificial islands in the South China Sea. China has the means to defend itself.

  16. you just put blame but you never recognize your doing, that is the way Communists usually did. instead executed them right away or they will (in the communist world, killing is a way to cover their mouth, not let them talk to defend themselves)
    you say “Genglis Khan used the first canon.” Stop !!! in Chinese movies made 100% in China, I don’t see or hear anything Khan use canon, how you know Khan had used the canon first. Liar. maybe you can guide them to do so, to polish the communist regime, propaganda is number one priority task. “under the light of Chinese Communist party” do this policy.
    “we hang them” it is true, because it is a nature of the communists. China don’t want its people to remember the past but worship Communist killers. Chinese communists destroyed everything not relating to the Communism in order to blind Chinese people, remember Cultural revolution in 1960 or Student movement (?), recently Corrupted communist leader who belonged to the old chairman not new.( new belongs to mr.Xi) new will be old again in order. if Communists are in power, it is difficult to say old or new.
    It is true, pay them for their brain, and keep them from wrong doing or in wrong hand. that is the way, human behaves.
    sorry, but I don’t know it is true or, I saw a picture took in the field hundred kilometer form Shanghai by a famous photographer, what I saw it were not water Buffalo but human figures. China is building a huge military to bully smaller countries, but It forgot its people in agony, Feel free to share with me.
    don’t be a frog. jump out of the well, and see it yourself. The world is so beautiful and so nice without ?????????

  17. The two men who put melamine into the milk were executed, and the company, which was owned by a New Zealand company was closed, and the lady president was sent to prison.

    discover or invent, now, don’t play with words. No matter which word you use, gun powder still was invented (discovered) in China. Nop, Genglis Khan used canon first, not Europeans, then the Turks.

    We have just gone through talking about stealing. The West stole from China first, gun powder, silk, porcelain,… No, stealing is good. You save all the expenses of doing the research and development.

    Watch the military channel, ATT U-verse channel 276. The U.S. steal, too. I worked on a stolen German project in the 1960s. We not only steal products, we stole their scientists, German and Japanese scientists. When it’s a military general, we hang them. When it’s a rocket scientists or germ weapon scientists, we paid them high salaries for them to work for us, and grant them U.S. citizenship immediately.

    Even today, China still uses water buffalo to plow rice fields… that is because of the plateau rice field. It’s an impossible task for a tractor to plow a small field, and go up another level to plow another rice field.

    Don’t be silly. Chinese people eat what they produce in China. Otherwise, China wouldn’t have the cash to lean us. Cheap made-in-China products are good enough to last a couple of years, then you throw them away and go buy another one of the same cheap made-in-China product.

    Yes, back in the 1960s, I worked on a project that was started in Germany when the war ended. The U.S. Army packed and shipped them to storage in Virginia and forgotten all about it. Then the Korean War started. We needed the same weapon against the communist in Korea. Then the war in Korea ended. Bu that German project was shipped to Naval Weapons Research Center for study and research. I was a replacement for another engineer who died of lung cancer.

    Well, Uncle Sam’s propaganda are worse. You must have seen TV commercials about Reverse Mortgage. “You don’t have to pay your mortgage, and you can live from the value of your house, and you still own your house”!!!!

    A bunch of bullshit!!!! on reverse mortgage, you sold your house to the bank. That is how you get money o live on!!!!

  18. if the product is bad, It will recall for public safety, so tell me a about baby milk !!!!!! how many babies have died and been victims of Chinese product.. don’t you see on TV, how many babies by the machine to filter blood. Shame on you. Gun power is discovered by Chinese not invented by Chinese, that is why the West had canon first, you were still use sword and spear … the west uses tractors to do farm work, you are still using human labor to do it. you say copying is habit of human nature, right. I agree with you. But stealing is bad, I think you know what I mean. Shame on you, open your eyes and ears the true Chinese and around the world thought of Chinese products. Don’t you see main land people go out of main land for food and goods, why do Chinese don’t use Chinese products, but foreign products. You know why? because they are safer that Chinese one.
    How much did you get paid to respond to a comment. you are like the communist trash, liar, “you worked on a German stated project in the 1960” are you sure? don’t you scared of the communists, they are rather killing wrong than letting go wrongly. how can you have time to do your stuff like this. don’t be lie, liar. I see, I see. more comments more money. It seems to be a neat job.
    “buy them by the billions every year” ha ha…those products don’t last long, just one-time use, then throwing away because I don’t want to waste the US made. tell me you do not compare before you buy:
    I know what you mean “by the billion” if the products made in China, but from US companies, it is OK to buy because they are cheap, even they don’t last long, but it is better than “made in China” by local Chinese companies. they are like toys, just a waste.
    Thank you for reminding to see clearly the world. You are look like a frog in the well, see the world through the opening of the well, SORRY. In the communist world, you see and hear the world through your Communist propaganda, poor guys. Open your eyes to see it by yourself. not by Communist liar.

  19. Like I said, don’t go off to the deep end complaining of Chinese copying and stealing. The West stole from China first. Without China’s invention of gun-powder, you still be using bows and arrows.

    You mean China manufactures a “Wind Rover” similar to the Range Rover???? Good for them!!!! They are only the second country to copy it. Japan copied it first, and called it the “Land Cruiser” by Toyota.

    “Made-in-China” products are low quality and bad, but yet you people buy them by the billions every single year. Face it, fella, you people just love cheap low quality products, use it and throw them away and buy new ones again and again.

    Oh!!! you haven’t heard of the recent recall of Blue Bell Ice Cream????, e-coli contaminated chicken from Foster Farms??? contaminated beef/Mad Cow disease from the Mid-west????? How about the thousands of babies born with deformities by a drug called thalidomide??? Nobody copies from China because no one can do it cheaper than they can.

    Watch the Military Channel, if you have ATT U-verse, it’s channel 276. You’d be surprised how much we stole and copied from other countries. As a matter of fact, at the end of WWII, we (and Russia) stole all Germany’s research projects and German and Japanese scientists. I worked on a German-started project in the 1960s.

    Shame on you!!!! Open your eyes and ears. You are NOT seeing the world as it truly is!!!!!

  20. I don’t care how many times said, mime is pirating is pirating, stealing is stealing, I don’t care how many years, but at least you ask, but Chinese Pirates never ask….. you see, Range Rover, now you have Wind Rover….. What is it, Why don’t you invent yourselves ??? because you know Chinese names mean low qualities and bad, so you get a short cut by stealing somebody’s name, So what is you proud of, Chinese pirates…… ” because if you don’t, your enemies will”. tell me China produce any thing good and neat. your baby milk …. you baby killers. food is harmful to consumers, toys is full of lead.. “your enemies will” must think it over before they are stealing “Chinese technologies”. Nobody tries to copycat or copy your “Chinese poisonous products” or “made in China”. so don’t be ridiculous ” your enemies will”, Chinese Pirates…. don’t let the world laugh out loud !!!! Pirating is pirating, nooooo Excuse, Chinese pirates.

  21. Talking about territorial dispute in South China Sea, an ‘invisible hand’ has never fail to instigate her allies Philippines, Japan,
    and even her former foe Vietnam, in a very dangerous game of testing the bottom line of China. This ‘hand’ finger pointing
    at China not abide by the INTERNATIONAL LAW. Rightly so, China, or even Russia, are not going to be abide by that kind of ‘fly and sail to anywhere’ kind of law.
    This is not a LAWLESS WORLD of the ‘world police’. Started from the 1970’s, Philippines schemes to steal islands belong to China through force occupation. Today, Aquino attempts to consolidate the illegal theft through UNCLOS. If he had his way, that would mean ‘the JUDGES schemes with THIEF ‘. This is the LAWLESS WORLD of Aquino and Philippines.

  22. There is no sense re-inventing the wheel. Copy all you want, and steal all you can, because if you don’t, your enemies will.

    Besides, a patent is only good for 20 years. After 20 years, anybody can make it and sell it. Xerox is a prime example. In the 1960s and 1970s, Xerox means to copy. Xerox challenges IBM as the #1 company in the U.S.

    Where is Xerox today?? Many many companies are making laser printers. You can buy one for $50.00. I have 2 at home.

    Xerox PARC invented windows and the mouse only for Apple and Microsoft to make money. Xerox PARC also invented a printing process only for Adobe Systems to profit from the invention.

    So stop making a fool of yourself and face reality. Without China’s invention of gun-powder, the world still would be fighting with bows and arrows. Chinese invention of gun-powder changed the world completely. So don’t go off to the deep end and accuse China of stealing. Westerners started the process of stealing from China first and foremost!!!!

  23. The only thing you are right is that the candidate in your comment should be Vietnam! Vietnam’s case is similar to Philippines except that it is more cunning and ambitious. It is comparable to SHOPLIFTING in a Vietnamese supermarket. No more no less a theft case.

  24. Raytheon was buying Chinese rockets sending our satellites up before Congress put a stop to it!
    Today in America, Chinese products, components and ingredients are in 90% goods we consume.
    Japan and Korea took our techs and pass us, so can China….!

  25. I said many many times,and I will continue to say it.
    There is no sense re-inventing the wheel.
    Copy all you can. And steal all you want.
    Because if you don’t, your enemies will.
    Besides, a patent is only good for 20 years.
    After 20 years, anybody can make it and make money from it.

    A prime example is Xerox. In the 1960s and 1970s, “xerox” means to copy.
    IBM and Xerox were top companies of America’s industry.

    Where is Xerox today? Where is IBM?
    Many many companies make laser printers today for $50.00 and I have 2 at home.
    Xerox PARC invented windows and mouse only for Apples and Microsoft to make billions.
    Xerox PARC invention of computer printing started Adobe Systems, another giant of American industry.
    Chinese invention of gun-powder changed the world completely. So don’t go to the deep end and accuse China of stealing. Westerners started the process of stealing from China first and foremost!!!!

  26. that is the way Chinese communists talk, talk big, but talk cheap. say somebody “no brain”. What are those Chinese communists talking about? you got brain? what do your whole navy ships look like? how about your airplanes. Shame on you, Stop steal technologies from other countries. Invent yourself own designs, brainless copycat Chinese.

  27. If China and Japan were to combine together and form a more powerful China, then China would have a much easier time taking over any variety of smaller countries. Of course, this may certainly need at least 10 more years, especially to combine military at the same time as technology advancement. Eventually, this more powerful China will become an overwhelming threat to America. This is exactly what happens in my screenplay titled; “The Last President” by Douglas Paige at; driveme89123yahoocom and asking only $1.7 million.

  28. The world is paying its mistakes from previous decades: It has kow-towed to China and kept silent when the latter swallowed one territory after another: Tibet, East Turkestan, Paracel, part of Spratly, Anurachal Pradesh,… and now China gets bold and wants to swallow the whole sea of South East Asia. China’s modern tyrants like Mao, Deng practiced the “salami slicing” strategy long time ago and now Xi follows but somehow seems to accelerate in order to realize his “Chinese dream” of becoming the “great leader” by capturing the entire sea of South East Asia. A new Third Reich is rising from China’s shores. Today’s situation is very much the same when the Third Reich of Germany swallowed Sudetenland then Czechoslovakia and the world acquiesced it. If the US and other powers do not act now, WWIII will likely to happen when China invades all other islands of the sea of South East Asia and attacks Senkaku of Japan. The ChiNa-Xi tandem seems to be determined of realizing its “Chinese dream”.

  29. A lot of big-mouth American idiots, all talks, no brains, no actions.
    We can’t even beat Vietnam. How do you expect to beat monster China????
    Ashton Carter is a stupid fool stirring up a hornet’s nest in the South China Sea.
    And Obama is even a bigger fool to let him do that.

  30. USA Created Technology China Steal Technology. US can’t trust china any more it’s show the last 40 Years . With china Irresponsible Arrogant act to SCS and to It’s Neighbors Territory that china Violet . We need to stop china Cockroach before it’s get to Our Plate .

  31. cold war is like burning money which we don’t have as we did with Soviets who lost bcs of money. so why starts a cold war with China that we have no chance of winning?
