U.S. Moves 30,000 Marines To Counter China’s Assertiveness

China’s assertive posture in the South China Sea has prompted the United States Marine Corps to deploy as many as 30,000 marines to Hawaii and beyond, reports Want China Times. The U.S. Marine Corps specializes in expeditionary warfare. Defense experts said the move is aimed at dramatically reducing America’s response time in the Asia Pacific.

U.S. strategic weapons to be near China by next month

The relocation of marines is a key part of President Barack Obama’s Asia Rebalancing strategy. China is building a third airstrip in the disputed South China Sea, which is long enough to accommodate most Chinese military aircraft. Beijing’s land reclamation activities are the primary reason for the relocation of U.S. marines. North Korea’s nuclear program is the another reason.

According to South Korea’s Munhwa Ilbo, Washington will place its four strategic weapons in either South Korea or at the Guam naval base within a month. These four weapons are nuclear submarines, B-2 stealth bombers, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and F-22 stealth fighters. Two F-22 fighters and the USS Ronald Reagan are set to visit South Korea in October.

China a ‘competitor’ to the U.S. and its partners

What’s more, the U.S. Marine Corps has brought together commanders from 23 countries for a conference aimed at integrating operations of their amphibious forces. The conference began in Hawaii on Monday, reports Reuters. Commanders from Vietnam, the Philippines, and Japan have also participated. However, China was not invited because it was a “competitor” to the U.S. and several countries attending the conference.

Washington has grown critical of Beijing’s assertiveness in the South China Sea. China’s state-run Xinhua news agency said in a column that Washington’s already strong military presence in the Asia Pacific has emboldened some countries that have territorial disputes with China to take aggressive moves. Xinhua said any aggressive behavior in the disputed waters is the direct consequence of American actions. Beijing claims control over the entire South China Sea.

  1. Huh? Now you want to talk about migration?

  2. To the idiot who said “South China Seas belong to China”:
    South China Seas belong to the country South China, but there is no South China country. So go eat sh*t, China!

  3. If you cannot see the difference between the 2 sides, look which side the refugees (migrants) are running to. Which side are you yourself at now?

  4. Hey I’d give you a reply but I’m reading is” Wang Chan chi chong!”

  5. So your could not come up any proper thing to say with your perfect English? I bet you do not even have a passport or traveling out side your little shack. So your perfect English is just good for all the trash talk as it shows how the US exceptionalism is just a farce. You just have proved Uncle Sam’s public education system produced hateful lonely individual worshipping guns and mass killings. Shame.

  6. I am sorry. I don’t understand how you can use words about one and ignore the exact same thing the other has done and is doing

  7. Waaaa? I don’t speak garbled English.

  8. We are not talking about anything except this China’s claim. Just look at the map, this China claim has something to do with the present and the future of some countries surrounding the region. Changing the status quo will enrage and further escalate the conflict that could happen against China. The US and many countries are against this China claim.

  9. May be this platform should set up data entry for people to submit US passport number before they are allowed to log in. I certainly have no problems for doing that, traveling around the world. I am wondering, can you? You much are like a Manchurian writer pretending a red neck or a racist. I pity you. Otherwise your free country is even worse than your bad mouthed China, let your stupid comments give a bad name for this forum. Again sadly you typical stupid red neck do not know the Chinese language as disadvantage, as the real Chinese you hate so much can not careless what your vomiting of stinking stuff out of Uncle’s public education system. Since when free country is only for citizens? The are over 15 Million tourists enjoying this free country every year and over 12 million undocumented residents also enjoy this as a free country. They may not be able to vote, but nevertheless a free country with all the rights to free speech. You act like a Gestapo in a free country. You have no shame.

  10. It’s a free country to it’s citizens. You’re not a citizen so get lost in your toxic smog.

  11. There will be no war. China knows it would be completely destroyed while their attackers would live on. But hey if China is stupid enough then they get what they deserve.

  12. Hahaha, china ch!nx ch!ng ch0ngs, you’re gonna get your a$s kicked. You’ve been bullying all your small neighbors, but you’re too chicken sh~t to face up to any country your own size. You have a “historical evidenced” pattern of running away from real fights, or you have gotten your as$ kicked. There’s “indisputable historical evidence” that China is a COWARD, a THIEF, a THUG, a LIAR, a CHEATER, and a SPY. And as evidenced by Xi Jinping when he visited the US on 9/25, he lied to the world audience with a straight face: CHINESE = SHAMELESS!!!

  13. CHINA LOOKS STRONG AND BIG AS A GIANT , BUT WEAKER AS IT SEEMS FOR HAVING A LEGS MADE OF CLAY….THE GREAT BLUFFER…

  14. two million standing army will soon be dead…

  15. 2 million man standing Army, it’s own backyard and advanced weapons and an Air Force and Navy… I would place my bets with………

  16. How about China drop a nuke on you?

  17. Typical 3rd grade response….

  18. Exactly, while this is China’s backyard and they have a standing Army of 2 million….

  19. You keep pointing out Chinese actions. What about American actions and markets and these trade pacts and the World Bank, that have hollowed out the resources of these same 3rd world countries you speak of. American talks about Freedom and Democracy and Human rights, but we don’t care about any of that. We care about access to their for our military, loaning money knowing countries can’t pay back that debt, then end up selling state to settle that debt. Opening their economies to U.S. markets and U.S. Corporations. Let’s not forget The U.S. Tortures!

  20. Why don’t you go stop China? Or, would you like to keep posting here for someone else’s loved one to go and die for you to keep posting here?

  21. When speaking on greed, you need to look at the U.S. and the World Bank…. Let’s not forget the naked aggression by the U.S. from Vietnam & Panama to Iraq, Libya and now Syria. Greed?

  22. huh?

  23. Gutless Chinese politicians and gutless Russian politicians will also take us to war.

  24. Yes, it will be a firestorm. Too much collateal damage. Decent folks raising their families as best they can while our governments take us to destruction not seen since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

  25. I expect the only obese man in NK to stop yipping like an angry puppy and run and hide inside his palace.

  26. Chinas time is running out……

  27. I am not against Chinese. Chinese are people just as Americans are people. But I am against your Chinese government (which it is hard to tell sometimes the difference between a citizen and government official or worker when the propaganda is being pushed). The tone has changed since Xi and not for the better. I wish you luck in your travels.

  28. Your “Pasted” facts are usually correct, but your conclusions are insane.
    Kilroy is not Chinese. Kilroy is always a guest during his travels.
    Goodbye and good luck, it appears that you will need all the help you can get.

  29. Chinese currency is NOT exchangeable for a quantity of gold or silver by ANY stretch of the imagination. You are a PRIME CANDIDATE FOR PARTY LEADER!

    A gold standard is a monetary system in which the standard economic unit of account is based on a fixed quantity of gold. Three types can be distinguished: specie, exchange, and bullion.

    In the gold specie standard the monetary unit is associated with the value of circulating gold coins or the monetary unit has the value of a certain circulating gold coin, but other coins may be made of less valuable metal.
    The gold bullion standard is a system in which gold coins do not circulate, but the authorities agree to sell gold bullion on demand at a fixed price in exchange for the circulating currency.
    The gold exchange standard usually does not involve the circulation of gold coins. The main feature of the gold exchange standard is that the government guarantees a fixed exchange rate to the currency of another country that uses a gold standard (specie or bullion), regardless of what type of notes or coins are used as a means of exchange. This creates a de facto gold standard, where the value of the means of exchange has a fixed external value in terms of gold that is independent of the inherent value of the means of exchange itself.
    Most nations abandoned the gold standard as the basis of their monetary systems at some point in the 20th century, although many hold substantial gold reserves.

    So China can have substantial gold reserves. But it isn’t backed by 1). Circulating gold coins. 2). authorities DONT agree to sell gold bullion on demand at a fixed price in exchange for the circulating currency. 3). government DOES NOT guarantee a fixed exchange rate to the currency of another country that uses a gold standard Got it?

  32. No you are not my tutor. You get an F

  33. I stated the following: “Since September 19, 2014, the People’s Bank of China had established the Shanghai International Gold Exchange to buy/sell trade gold to/from the Chinese gold hoard exclusively denominated in Yuans on a “cash and carry” basis. This very unique service is exclusively offered only for international gold trade. Domestically, gold is traded by the major banks, which also use the same market spot price. I guess that you didn’t get that memo.”

    There is a major difference between immediate convertibility, and pegging the Yuan to the 2,000 year stable purchasing power of gold.

    I have feelings, and take offense to your slanderous remarks about both me and China. I am not your tutor.

  35. I may be full of $hit, but the Chinese Yuan is NOT Fiat currency, it is Commodity money.

    Fiat money is currency which derives its value from government regulation or law. It differs from commodity money, which is based on a good, often a precious metal such as gold or silver, which has uses other than as a medium of exchange. The term derives from the Latin (“let it be done”, “it shall be”).

  36. Chinese Yuan is asset based? What is the asset it is exchangeable for? You said it is not pegged to gold… DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?

  37. You are full of $hit. The Chinese Yuan is fiat currency. You continue so prove you are eligible to be head of the Chinese communist party. Congratulations!

  38. “The Chinese are desperate for foreign capital. Mostly the US Dollar.”

    I have never read any statement by you that is so naïve and stupid.

    The United States FRN Dollar is the most counterfeited currency in the world.

    The US dollar is Debt-based, which means that it is a Fiat currency, and requires a governmental value guarantee. Since the US Corporation is already insolvent, it cannot guarantee the value of the US FRN Dollar, which makes as worthless as the Confederate Dollar. That makes the US FRN Dollar only useful domestically, because it is rapidly losing its value world-wide.

    The Chinese Yuan is Asset-based, which means that it is NOT Fiat currency, and the Yuan DOES NOT require the Chinese Government’s guarantee. The Chinese Yuan is rapidly acquiring international acceptance for foreign trade. China does not need or want US FRN Dollars.

  39. “The Chinese are desperate for foreign capital. Mostly the US Dollar.”

    That is the most naive and stupid statement that you have ever made.

    The US Dollar is the most counterfeited currency in the world. It is also a Debt-based fiat currency that requires a guarantee by its government, and since the US Corporate government is insolvent, therefore the FRN Dollar is as worthless as the Confederate Dollar.

    China’s Yuan is an Asset-based currency and is not fiat currency, and therefore the Chinese government does NOT have to guarantee the Yuan.

    The FRN Dollar is ONLY useful domestically, but not for foreign trade.

  40. The Chinese government is clamping down on the amount of cash its citizens can withdraw from ATMs overseas, its latest attempt to stop foreign currency (dollars) flooding out of the country.

    The restrictions apply to holders of UnionPay bank cards issued in mainland China. For the remainder of 2015, withdrawals will be limited to 50,000 yuan ($7,868). Starting in 2016, an annual limit of 100,000 yuan ($15,737) will apply.

    Even with those restrictions, capital outflows totaled $219 billion US Dollars in the first half of 2015, according to UBS.

    Money is flowing out despite government efforts to reassure investors who are worried about the country’s economic slowdown, wild swings in the stock market and a sudden devaluation of the yuan in August.

    China’s foreign-exchange reserves plunged by a record $94 billion last month, according to the country’s central bank.

    Tao Wang, an economist at UBS, said that foreign exchange reserves are likely to fall further as Beijing defends the value of the yuan.

    The Chinese are desperate for foreign capital. Mostly the US Dollar.

  41. On July 16th, 2001 The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation sign the Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation. 2 months later The World Trade Center falls.

  42. MoreBS…you are definitively wrong…you obviously have never been to or lived in China…I have…Chinese aggression left unchecked is a huge mistake…it is “more BS” to say other wise

  43. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/the-great-china-ponzi-an-economic-and-financial-trainwreck-which-will-rattle-the-world/

    I just read this article. Maybe you can read about the debt fueled building that has already pumped up the number of Yuan in circulation in China through debt. Along with that debt is all you chinese guys standing around looking at your idle machinery. Because EVERYONE borrowed money and bought machinery. Now no one needs all this machinery. I am not even going to buy Christmas presents this year. Who has the money coming in? Not us Americans.

    So you got all this stuff and your financial genius of a leader determined that if he can only get his hands on huge new sources of income – he can export the ponzie scheme. He can draw people in through his development banks and the “one belt one road” and the opening of the stock market and best yet the reserve currency status.

    So things have not worked out too well. The falling stock market is only a bloody nose. The real fighting for your life comes as the currency comes under pressure. The Yuan that is. Because the problem with printing Yuan and exchanging them for too few dollars is that you will run out of dollars when people ask to return their investments to a foreign country. Yes companies like Apple and IBM made a lot of Yuan. So you put capital controls on the amount of money a person can take out of China. Then comes the stampede of all the investors scrambling for the last remaining dollars. INDEED. GOOD LUCK!

  44. Greedy China should be stopped from grabbing territories. Not only this are they trying to claim, there are still some more territories that China will grab. China’s greed knows no boundary. The US is the only country that can stop China from grabbing territories of other countries.

  45. What ?

  46. He who laughs last, laughs longest, and the best. You will not have to wait very long before you start to shed your tears. Good Luck!!

  47. I understand that you are not knowledgeable about finance. Maybe you could become party leader one day. Lead the stock market and economy! Hahahahahaha

  48. that aside when come to the common enemy and fear of china invasion , any deal with USA will do and to contain china now is the first priority, once the peace and security in the region in place business come second mode.

  49. Good. Action needed long overdue. DOn’t talk, stop Chinese dogs from barking. China just showed off. US needed to test Chinese cheap, quality weapons.

  50. I wonder who is the idiot? If and/or when China pegs the Yuan to the weight of gold, China will be able to control the value of the Debt-based FRN Dollar internationally, and will also be able to remove gold from the future’s commodity market. This would immediately bankrupt both COMEX and LBMA, and China then sets value of the Debt-based FRN Dollar internationally. Do you understand that implication?

  51. Wow, you chinese really don’t understand financial issues. Having the Yuan able to buy gold at a spot market price is not the same as pegging the value of the yuan to gold.

    What an idiot.

  52. Since September 19, 2014, the People’s Bank of China had established the Shanghai International Gold Exchange to buy/sell trade gold to/from the Chinese gold hoard exclusively denominated in Yuans on a “cash and carry” basis. This very unique service is exclusively offered only for international gold trade. Domestically, gold is traded by the major banks, which also use the same market spot price. I guess that you didn’t get that memo.

    Up until the present, the market spot price is set by COMEX and LBMA, and China accepts their converted market spot price into Yuans per gram of gold. You can go to YAHOO’s FINANACE interactive chart for XAU/CNY for the current market spot price of gold for Yuans per ounce of gold. The market spot price for gold is very volatile.
    Don’t you mean that the currency Yuan is undervalued against the dollar? Congress thinks so!!
    “He who owns the gold, makes the rules.” China owns more gold than any other country, so it now makes the financial/economic rules for the rest of the world.

  53. The only acceptable China to the West is a kowtow and yes sir China.

  54. Have you been to China? Have you read our government’s own annual report on China? The China Military Power Report 2015(http://www.defense.gov/Portals/1/Documents/pubs/2015_China_Military_Power_Report.pdf) I’ll let you read it for yourself. We have much more to fear from ISIS, Al Quida and the Taliban than the Chinese.

  55. i would taste it first if i were you before it’s too late it could be yummy, etc… doesn’t matter

  56. pogigaltsamgagago . | Sep 30, 2015, 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm |

    its about time…cut the leg before the gangrene spreads..

  57. pogigaltsamgagago . | Sep 30, 2015, 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm |

    its about time…

  58. china is NOTHING without american dollars…50% of all goods sold in america are made in china or from chinese material…stop all trade and china will shut down. this is our own fault, we have enable these slimy vermin to do this by funding their efforts by buying their goods. you want to know why they are doing this? you want to know why china is buying up resources or funding projects in just about EVERY 3rd wold country…watch “death by china” and “surviving progress” both available on netflix or just search for them on youtube…i promise, after you see these two programs, you will have a whole new view on china and will agree that we must act NOW

  59. china’s nukes are a joke, but since they manufacture 90% of all computers and electronic components and control modules, you can be certain that they will use those to wage a cyber war…those computers/control modules, an electronic components are coded with a form of trojan/virus/worm/malware that they can control and effectively shut us down (computing, communication, infrastructure, even some military parts), which would create a nightmare scenario for us…they don’t need nukes to fight us, they know those would be useless. we need to take action BEFORE its too late

  60. about time we take some action…now a “back in your hole” strike by our forces to remind china that they are what we actually allow them to be…as we can cut of all trade and they will quickly be back to riding around on bicycles. if we don’t, they will have the capability to activate their cyber war strategy, which will require follow up by means of conventional war in order to take up dominant positions. the war with china is coming, the only question is will we limit their capabilities now or struggle to do it later

  63. Let’s try and differentiate between Chinese people and the Chi-Coms. I know plenty of Chinese-American’s and they embrace Democracy just as much as the next guy. The Chinese Communist Government much like many governments does things and spends our money in many ways that we vehemently disagree with.
    The Chinese Communist Government is grossly wrong on this one and overplaying their hand. Militarily, The US and those Countries affected will never let their unsupported territorial claims amount to more than a few airstrips. Economically speaking, their are plenty of 2nd and 3rd world countries dying to replace China as the go to place for Corporations like Walmart to make cheap shite to sell to Everyone. The West and their Corporations like Wal-Mart and Apple, if it wasn’t for their own greed, could bring a change to the Chinese political system without firing a bullet. Thank you Global Economy.

  64. Fighting over natural resources like gas, fish, sea lane, etc.

  65. Sounds like a plan to me. :)

  66. don’t just do talk the talk…do a little walk the walk… now go and clean your house out with everything and parts made in china..
    start with throwing away your iphone and computer, most of the parts are either made or assembled in China.

  67. HERE WE GO NOW…NUKE ‘EM GREEDY CHINKNESS AND REDUCE THEM TO ASHES!!!!!

  68. your right, I know little about china. no need to know them right. they are nobody’s wanting to be somebody by bullying.

  69. 100% agree we should file a petition to the UN to rename the area as “Southest Asain Sea” to
    reflect the reality and to stop China so obsessive with the name “South of China Sea”.
    Imagine that India claim the entire Indian Ocean belong to India because of its name, China, what do you think?

  70. …who’s economy? Hmmmm…? Americans would not do without their stuff. We’d start building the crap right here in American again…it would cost more, yes, but it wouldn’t kill us.

  71. Exactly correct. Mexico doesn’t “own” the Gulf Of Mexico just because it was named after them. Look at this map, I had no idea China was ballsy enough to go that far out and try to claim land/water and with a economic trade route right through it. China is massively building it’s forces and just joined Russia holding the largest ever Naval exercise ever done by world powers, so let us not be naive what China is capable of building in terms of warfare. In my opinion.

  72. Wow, this map really puts into perspective what China is doing. Do they really think they can just go out in the ocean and claim land/waters like that in today’s time? Especially with the economic trade route right through it and way, way off from China’s shores? That’s like us going down and claiming Cayman Islands as U.S. land now and all waters in between. I say level it and sink the islands, then no more dispute islands gone. If only it were that easy I guess. In my opinion.

  73. MoreBS
    Do you wait for the worse case scenario to come before you act? Or you’re too dumb to see the obvious.

  74. The intelligence community is busy blowing smoke up our rears to promote a higher level of tension and maintain the military black budget that they all benefit from.

  75. Well it makes sense to take our factories out of China (and withdraw our money you don’t want). Then use that money to build factories at home. No competition from China for American consumers (you don’t want the money they spend) should make the profits very nice. Funny your story about chinese currency being convertible to gold. :-). I have not seen that service counter in China where the Chinese communist Party is handing out gold for Yuan! But now would be the time since the Yuan is overvalued against the dollar to bring dollars to trade for gold! What is the “Official Yuan exchange rate” for gold these days? An ounce for each Yuan?

  76. Do you know what you’re blobbing about? You sound like a Chinese troll with no brain function! You think we’re idiots here with no knowledge of what’s happening out there? China is continually building illegal military stations around South China Sea, and this is no simple misunderstanding!

    UNCLOS is UN’s established law meant to designate portions or body of water base on 200 nautical mile EXCLUSIVE ECONOMIC ZONE from a sovereign’s shores, and China agreed with this International law as a signatory. But what are you missing here… Presently China is directly disrespecting sovereign territories by putting up airfields and military bases! This is a clear and present danger that US is up to take the task (THANK GOD) on China’s bullying schemes. If you don’t like what the International community is doing just shut up, or go shove your filth to your face, maggot! US is not stirring the pot here, it is China from building illegal military stations outside its territorial waters. You still don’t get it?

    The Philippines has been requesting military assistance for years from the US and its allies, and now Australia, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, South Korea and others is acting responsibly.

  77. NO NEED TO LAND IN CHINA,just bomb china and the economy collapse will take china to famine land——1.4 billion is a lot of mouth to feed when war break out,boy

  78. China is so greedy to claim all these islands beyond the 200 nautical miles economic zone ratified by the
    UNCLOS of which China is a signatory member. They have killed 80 Vietnamese soldiers in the Spratlys in 1980.They will kill because of greed. The U.N., Vietnam, Philippines, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia and even Australia should rally together to stop China’s madness.

  79. It will be more like 300,000 if it’s a conventional war.

  80. Your right the people would be so happy to get rid of the communist!

  81. You don’t want to be brutal, but you already sound brutal.

    When did China threaten nuclear war?

    All sides need to chill out, but the U.S. is the one stirring the pot by planning to deploy nuclear-capable forces to the region.

    If it weren’t for the U.S., the other countries would have resolved this matter already.

  82. UNCLOS 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone dictates who’s who. There is no way China can make its own claims over the whole South China Sea just because it was named after them, basically a rather one childish attitude. But now that this crisis comes under International Law (UNCLOS) UN should act on it or this conflict will spin into direct confrontation and may lead to China’s annihilation. I don’t want to be brutal but if China threatens the use of nuclear weapons or uses one over US naval fleet the next picture will be US responding with what they have in their arsenal. There are 14 Ohio Class submarines roaming around the Pacific Ocean carrying each 24 Trident II SLBMs, and the situation could easily become ugly that could lead to millions and millions of lives lost. And while US moves its forces around China its Navy’s 3rd and 7th fleets are expected to merge for this conflict and Japan has recently abandoned pacifism to deploy its forces outside their borders, and I don’t see China winning this one.

    UN can resolve this issue and make a final declaration weather China really have a legitimate claim over the whole South China Sea or not and to weather the international community agrees with it, or let the chips fall where they may for the next great war in the Pacific.

  83. 1.4 billion mouth to feed????bomb china and stop buying made in china will kill china,no need to fight with cockroach

  84. just bomb china,and china’s economy will take care of china collapse

  85. no need to land in china,just bomb china and it will collaose with economy downturn and famine

  86. It takes money to make money. Where is Americans going to get the required money to make all the things that America used to import. China is the only country world-wide that its Yuan currency is NOT Debt-based. The Chinese gold-backed Yuan DOES NOT require the IMF’s blessing to become the world’s reserve currency. China can be the world’s reserve currency tomorrow, if it so desired.

  87. China has NO right to build anything in the “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”, to begin with! They reclaim land in the sea because we gave it the wrong name that made china obsessed with the name. We should call it by the
    CORRECT name: “THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”!

    Where did they get the name “South China Sea” from? The name really gave China an obsessed illusion over it.
    The Politically Correct Name is “THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”, and it belongs to the Southeast Asian Community as a whole, not a single entity!

    Per political correctness, the “sea” should be referred to as “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”, not South china sea because that sea geographically situated Within the realm that made up of Southeast Asian Countries, NOT singleling china, alone. Therefore, the SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA belongs to all Asians, regardless where they are currently live in around the world. So, then Freedom of Navigation for all nations in the world is definitely!

    From now on, We MUST refer to the sea as “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”.
    We Must rally the world communities to amend the name and get accustomed to calling it the more legitimate, appropriate, and politically correct name: “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA”.

    China has been being deliberately ignorant to get it (this concept) right! Something that named after you is an Honor, NOT a Privilege! Hence, the “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA” has never been China’s, and is belong to NONE,
    no one! Please, be educated, regarding this concept!
    If any scholars who do not understand or accept this fact, they are NOT true scholars!

    This should be fair for all, mistake by none, and obsess by no ignorant. The name “SOUTHEAST ASIAN SEA” is indisputable, there is no question about it!

    Similarly, for example, we DO NOT call the “Black Sea” the Russian Sea, the Georgian Sea, the Turkish Sea, the Moldovan Sea, the Bulgarian Sea, the Ukrainian Sea, the Romanian Sea, or oddly, the NEW CHINA SEA (because
    Chinese merchants may have sailed through it probably, at least once some time in the Adam and Eve’s era or the not-exactly-known history. Black Sea is a sea that lied within the shared bordered coastlines of all the nations surrounding it, in the region, and that it does NOT belong to any single entity, and therefore, Freedom of Navigation is certainly for all and everyone.

    Same, for the Mediterranean Sea, the Celtic Sea, and more, and much more, belong to NONE, certainly not belong to china.

  88. Don’t worry! If war with China to break out, china is going to lose. Losers are Sweepers. Who loses the war will pay for
    its cost! As a war mongers and world trouble maker in the little
    “Southeast Asian Sea”, China will be banned from military practice for
    more than200 years, like Pacifist policy was placed on Japan, except it
    could be much, much longer. It will be stripped from military rights.
    Then possibly, Hong Kong and Taiwan will get their “official
    referendums” and be recognized as new Nations by the international
    community.
    Go Support for HongKongers and Taiwanese!!!

  89. Nazi Germany had a much better character than today’s china.

  90. of course they have no right but is that stopping them? fight fire with fire. make our own bases and claims to offset their claims. they would hate us doing to them what they do to everybody else! maybe they need their own medicine !

  91. I agree, joint the feast! Let’s go in for bronx and brawl; may the best won’t fall!

  98. Pfft, China can just laughs hysterically~

  99. Everybody recognized South china Sea belonged to China until the 1960s, when oil and gas was found and Vietnam and Philippines started grabbing islands.

  100. The 9 dot piece of paper is not recognized by anybody except china. It’s worthless.
    And this is the basis of all their claims.
    We have a coalition already.
    Send a Naval Task Force to all their islands that have airfields. Issue a demand;
    1) Vacate all islands in 30 days.
    2) If they try to reinforce or fail to vacate initiate offensive oprerations.
    3) Destroy their ability to defend themselves.
    4) Destroy their military & then their military industrial complex.
    5) After a month the people will be in revolt because they have no power. The cities are in blackout, no water, no food.

  101. The first wave canon folders, factories in China just received a order for 30,000 body bags~

  102. Actually that would allow a lot of Americans to find work making all the things we used to import. It is China that would be unemployed.

  103. Do your research son :)

  104. Can I still have China Chow Fun, too? Just China have Fun!

  105. China wanted a military show down? Let’s give them what they wish for.

  106. Not going to happen. We have a Big Time agreement with Taiwan that if they are attacked we will back them. Unbreakable Treaty ! !

  107. Veryyyy In-Ter-Est-Ink !!!! You Bet Your sweet Bippy !!! Oh Man, I’m So Old, I REMEMBER when the Chi Coms made War on the U.N., Murdered Our Troops and Slaughtered Millions of Innocent South Koreans. Now we’re Buddies…Frenemies…?! In between reminders of how they could “Nuke L.A.” and that they’re suffering from “Peace Sickness”… that’s a quote from one of their War Lords!!!

  108. Downsizing Life Style and Expectations is Preferable to Kow Towing to Communist War Lords !!! Most of the stuff they make and pawn off on us is Shoddy and/or Poisonous any way. Well, maybe NOT to you. And, we need to help Latin America and Africa and Free Asia Develop and Prosper, any way. NOT the Chi Coms. Hell of an Untapped Market there.

  109. Word!!! At least make it Clear that ALL must start paying their Fair Share in Blood and Treasure. The time when Straight White Men (you know, those Evil, Greedy,Mean, “Privileged” People) stop paying an extremely dis proportionate share of The Blood Bill will soon be upon us !!!

  110. The War Lords are fighting for control of the country and they must be stopped!!!

  111. I believe it IS True that red China still hopes that they will be able to take Control Of Taiwan!!!

  112. Sure, ALL have Sinned. That’s a Stone Cold Fact. But this is 2015 and so, if a Nation wants to be a Responsible Member of the World Community, they need to drop this Who Has A Bigger Penis approach. NO BODY is going to “Control” the South China Sea.

  113. I am pretty sure Taliban is shaking in their boots. They have just taken another city used to be controlled by Uncle Sam. why don’t you try to take that little city back before you can take on China with 20 million armed forces. Uncle Sam is the laughing stocks of the middle east or Putin. What is your action pissing on the ice cubes. Ha ha

  114. HEY… you should Know, if you’ve educated yourself that No President Runs Foreign or Military Policy by Himself!!! And, what do you think happens from Administration to Administration?! I’ll bet you think Ronald reagan did a Perfect, Righteous Job! read some more History. E mail every body else involved, if you even know Who to contact!!! Do you really think that Idiot Dubya was Running The Show???!!! The Neo Con Israeli Lobby was pulling his strings!!!

  115. On the contrary, Uncle Sam increasingly acts like fascist Hitler the way they like to round up Mexicans and kill off all colored folks under Republicans banner or president Trump. Look who grabbed more lands from the natives. First will be religious war fare with Muslims, and then to China and Russia with Socialist. This is what you preaching Right! What an extension of WWII as white folks are looking more reasons to kill under racial war. Do you like to spare Jews this time.

  116. With 2 you get Fortune Cookie !

  117. Verrrry In Ter Est Tink !!!

  118. The Foolish Commie war Lords had best not Overplay Their Hand, they stand to Lose Everything. Get Real Edgardo !!!

  119. Would there be immigration in all China Towns in the US in the future ?

  120. let’s hope that the Psycho Commie War Lords don’t push it to Get A Bloody Nose, because the U.S. and Allies like Taiwan and Japan could give em a Severe Bloody Nose. They’re playing their Art Of War Game Stupidly !!!

  121. No, they will wait for Uncle Sam stupid enough to get the first shoot. They have patience marked in decades. Uncle Sam has the fast foods and drugs. do not worry be happy.

  122. They’re HIGH on their Success… which is due to Kissinger/Nixon/U.S. in the First Place !!!

  123. Shut up and get to work you freedom slave to pay for just the interest.

  124. Great Idea!!! STOP the Chi Com War Lords !!!

  125. So Iraqis and Syrians can trust Uncle Sam to save them from dictator? You have no shame playing people’s life dying in the sea. Uncle Sam decided not to play and put tails between the legs and know how to find the blames with cheating, evil, and sneaky way. Big mouth. People are dying and EU in turmoils. World superpower is a laughing stock of the world.

  126. Are you going to lead to beach head? Talk is cheap, specially for somebody’s fathers or sons. You chicken hawk. Fight China 200 million armed forces will make you pee in your pants. Get real!!! Uncle Sam can not even get Syria and ISIS less than 33k forces.. If you hate China so much why don’t you go there set bombs in their subway and see how that works. Big mouth.

  127. why are USA Navy negotiate for the use of the Can Ranh Bay Naval Base there, a perfect base to watch and counter china navy.

    Surely VNM will love to have this base fully operated and pose as deterrence for chinese aggressiveness in the region..

  128. I thought USA is a free country w/o bully like you. Who are you to tell free people to shut up or tell their own opinions? You should go live in China that fits your damned style.

  129. You can not even finish Syria and are a laughing stock in Iraq, Afghanistan, tails between the legs. This is your idea fighting a war with your big mouth. How low the Uncle Sam is getting. A real fighting with China, will be even worse than 10 years in Vietnam, pee in pants and drugs. How soon you forget.

  130. Actually who were running away from the fight in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Vietnam, and Korea? US Armed Force has not won any wars w/o any allies after WWII . You were lucky in WWII, if not Russian killed most of the Nazis. You still can not match Russia in Ukraine and Crimea. Only pick on small countries like Granada. what a joke with so many commander behind key board. Chicken Hawks.

  131. edgardo vergara | Sep 29, 2015, 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm |

    after the U.S.- China war, U.S. can reimburse China $1.2 trillion for instigating war. now that’s even.

  132. edgardo vergara | Sep 29, 2015, 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm |

    yes, except chow mein!

  133. The US owns several islands and island chains in the area, moving USMC personnel onto those places would make good strategy and common sense then we will not be subject to what happened in the Philippines at the start of WW2 BUT we need a leader that is not a coward like McAuthor with his nickname of dugout Doug. We have the ships and aircraft to service those detachments and they could be rotated to the Philippines for R&R. It would be impossible to overrun all those detachments and very difficult to monitor their activities in respect to deployments or assignments. Putting all the aircraft and personnel on Guam is a mistake as it will bring trouble in the long run.

  134. well if Chinese can go in and take over islands then so can we!

  135. China is dillusion when said south China seas belong to China. No one in the world recognized South China Sea belongs to china

  136. U.S. Needs to act much sooner.Us should learn lesson about ukrain. Sine ASIs going to b a hot flash point if us does not stop China, it will affect us nagvigation, freedom to move and trade in the seas. us needs to support VN, phillipnes, Brunei ect. Kick China off islands,else China keep building military runway.Act now. Together with us, nuked island get rid of thief

  137. Relationship between Russia and China often is brought up as the strength of China. Mistaken !

    Russia fears China, which borders on Russia’s sparsely populated far eastern region, part of which was, in the eyes of the Chinese, stolen from China in the late 19th century.

    Many Russians worry that China will take over that land, either through migration or more sinister means. Unlike the West, which has facilitated China’s rise and has come to recognize it as a reality, the Russian elite has trouble accepting China, impoverished and impotent only a generation ago, as a great power.

    Russia has been the main supplier of arms to India, China’s long-time rival. Russian military hardware exported to India is superior to what it has sold to China.

    Russia has also provided Vietnam, which is now embroiled in a dangerous confrontation with China in the South China Sea, with advanced submarines and jet fighters that could give the Chinese military a bloody nose if a fight breaks out.

    Dictatorships have no such positive values as the basis of trust — otherwise, Hitler would not have invaded Stalin’s Soviet Union. No love between Xi and Putin here. The only love that they have in common is US Dollars.

  138. China is just Bullying the countries involve around the area because of their vast arsenal and military power. Its great that USA is policing and protecting the countries that can not defend themselves. China is disrespectful to those countries and claiming lands that does not belong to them only because they have the power! Good for USA! Defend the rights of the Philippines and other neighboring countries!

  139. Misleading statement.

    Russia fears China, which borders on Russia’s sparsely populated far eastern region, part of which was, in the eyes of the Chinese, stolen from China in the late 19th century.

    Many Russians worry that China will take over that land, either through migration or more sinister means.

    Where is the love here ? Can’t find it :)

  144. A good US counter-move that’s much needed.

    Let’s see what is the next move from China other than lies “We stop building on these islands”.

  145. Helmutt Schnell | Sep 29, 2015, 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm |

    Yeah and the lost continent of Atlantis owns the Atlantic. Who owns the Black Sea, Africa and what about the Gulf of Mexico? Don’t be silly.

  146. wow….really?

  147. Helmutt Schnell | Sep 29, 2015, 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm |

    I think not, Taiwan is able to put up a pretty good squabble if it comes to it.

    Well, because we have no connection to the China sea. The Phillippines on the other hand and those feisty little Vietnamese could do it. That would really piss off the Chi-coms.

    Foolish talk!

  151. If we go to war with China, Can i still have Chinese food?

  152. The US didn’t know the Chin had already planted bombs near our Nuclear powered sites.

  153. WWW3

  154. “dotted head” ? LoL !!!

  155. That’s funny! however I was told they had planted many bombs near our nuclear powered sites.

  156. To running dog Chinese, a war with America will mean a war with Japan and Korea as allies at a minimum. China is no match for the combined forces and your running dog military leadership knows it. The Chinese economy is heading for collapse and your running dog leaders are deflecting attention to us foreign devils. China is even pushing Japan to start rearming themselves beyond simply a defensive force. China needs to work out a solution if it wants to avoid trouble with the foreign devils.

  157. There won’t be much of a fight to begin with coz the little yellow chi-com wong-tongs are all talk, all vaginas, and not much substance. Give it up, china…Resistance Is Futile !!!

    ??????? !!!

  158. “U.S. debt is China, which owns more about $1.2 trillion in bills, notes and bonds, according to the Treasury.” China will dump all the trillion in bills, however Japan (might) take it over.

  159. @fairman, and China would be in BIG trouble without the US market.

  160. So when India decides to take control of the INDIAN Ocean I’m sure China will “understand” and keep their ships out, right?

  161. YES KNOW IT WE GOT THE SHIT IN SPACE THAT COULD DISTROY CHINA, AND RUSSIA WITH DEADLY ACURACY IN FACT WE HAVE NEW LASERS ON OUR SHIPS AS WELL AS MISSILES I HEARD THAT THERE GOING TO BE PUTTING THEM ON ALL OF OUR FIGHTER JETS AS WELL. THE UNITED STATES IS STILL A POWERHOUSE IF RUSSIA AND CHINA WANTED TO FIGHT A CONVENTUAL WAR WITH US IT WOULD BE HARD FOR US BUT WE WOULD TAKE THEM OUT RUSSIA EVEN ADMITTED THAT THE UNITED STATES IS THE SUPERPOWER BUT ITS CHINA THATS TRYING TO TAKE OUR SPOT, AND ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN EVEN IF WE HAVE TO GO TO A NUCLEAR WAR CAN YOU AMAGIN HOW MANY PEOPLE IN BEIJING CHINA WOULD DIE JUST FROM ONE US NUCLER MISSILE.

  162. The little yellow wong-tongs ain’t gonna be fighting back coz they’ll all be running away like a bunch of little girly vaginas against the true might of Justice For All. Trust me, the whole retarded chi-com race has 5,000 years of history all right……5,000 years of BULLCRAP history, that is.

  163. WE NEED TO TURN THEM G ISLANDS IN SANDBARS THE WAY THEY WHERE, AS FAR AS DISTROYING THEM MAYBE THE LARGER BUNKER BUSTER OR A NUCLEAR TIPED MISSILE WOULD DO THE JOB USING OUR B-2 BOMBERS FOLLOWEING THE F-22 FOR PROTECTION. YOU GOT IT RIGHT ON THE MONY BROTHER.

  164. WRONG!!!! WORLD WARII WAS NOT ALMOST WON IT WAS STILL FAR FROM WINING IT UNTIL THE UNITED STATES JOINED THE BATTLE TO HELP. AND IF YOU ASK ME TORTH KOREA PUT UP ON HELL OF A FIGH AS DID VIETNAM WE LOST ALOT OF MEN IN THAT WAR SO WE KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO BATTLE ANOTHER CONTRY. YOU ONLY SAY THIS BECAUSE ITS CHINA THE GUYS WITH ALL THE TECH. THE TECH THAT THEY STOLE FROM US BY THE HACKING BUT THE UNITED STATES STILL IS A HUGE POWERHOUSE AND NOT TO BE WITH. RUSSIA AND CHINA BOTH MAY FIND THIS OUT HERE REAL SOON

  165. DUDE WHATS AT STAKE HERE IS THE THIRD WORLD WAR SO HE DON’T NEED TO BE EDUCATED ON NOTHING, BECASE WHEN THE MISSILES START TO LAUNCH EVERYONE, BUT THE ELITE WILL LIVE. I THINK YOU NEED TO EDUCATE YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!

  166. America is being boxed in by diversity ,America has turned on the God (Jehovah) that started this country. Russian and Chinese people have pride in their people and beliefs and a equal hate for Americans ! We will be in big trouble ,this is a conflict NO ONE WINS ! This came about because of Americans actions toward diversity and equally showing to the world America has no morals or principals,the world shows no respect or fear for America ! All we can do is prepare for the inevitable. Major World War is on the way ! Thank your military and political cut backs and giving money to the enemy of America trying to buy their love. THE END !

  167. No currency’s reign lasts forever and the Debt-backed FRN Dollar will very soon yield to the Asset-backed Chinese Yuan. This means that since the United States military is paid with FRN Dollars, the U.S. military will not be able to contribute to the South China Sea’s conflict. All oversea military installations will soon be permanently closed and those troops will soon be discharged.

  168. USA needs to protect U.S. interest. With arrogant China Xi, USA needs to teach China a lesson much much sooner. Stop China from illegal building military runway. Nuke islands now,kill all Chinese thief, invaders ang bullying neighbor. Vn has documentation dated centuries back, Paracelsus and spratly belong to Vn, and it lied within Vietnam exclusive zones. China stole oil, methane gas. Tested China we on, bombed and crushed Chinese on islands into pieces. That is only way to stop thief China from further invasion.

  169. Why not put our own bases in the spratelys, just the same way the Chinese are doing? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander! If the Chinese can sieze islands so can the usa(i do not approve of the chinese island seizure) Chinese land grab ! China is a bully and it has been my experience in life to make bullies suffer and eventually they give up when their pain is enough !

  170. Bravo USA. Action finally b4 too late

  171. what a g retard

  172. China is Nazi Germany of 21 century. It seems like the world needs to fight this evil China again.

  173. mountainman1usa2002 | Sep 29, 2015, 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm |

    Won’t be long now before ww3 starts…

  174. it means nothing.

  175. Another one dotted head writer! Why Hawaii why not japan or philipine nearer to the area of actions? Another warmongering article trying to instigate war in order to spill American & Chinese blood.

  176. SO VERY STRANGE……Here we go again…Obama, will let his Muslim brothers cut your head off but, he’ll go chase China’s maybe wanting to build an island in the middle of what a damm ocean. We he will uproot a whole Marine Div. but will not send 10,000 additional troops to protect would we have won and are about to lose. It’s something new with this guy, EVERY DAY, and NONE OF IT’S worth a “TINKERS DAMM”. History will judge us and him…..and it will not be good!

  177. Let’s see how we’ll fair with a country that can actually fight us back. We never fought a country that can fight back !!!
    WWII was almost won before we came in. The Russians already dealt a devastating blow on Hitler.

  178. No more does the Gulf of Mexico belong to Mexico. No ocean belongs to any one country, as long as others stay outside of the ADIZ. China signed the UNCLO. They seem to have a poor/selective memory. China’s claim to that body of water is ridiculous. Freedom of navigation is accepted by all, but I see how China has a difficult time with any kind of “freedom”.

  179. The U.S. and friends have had since 1945 to occupy and settle these disputed waters….
    China was starving 40 years ago . Everything they made was from recycled pot metal…
    I totally disagree with China’ territorial claims.. However the USA, Israel ,Russia , ISIS, China and many others are just as guilty in their own Historical record…

  180. J. Martin Ceballos | Sep 29, 2015, 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm |

    China is surrounding Taiwan. The big picture is to invade Taiwan. Same way Russia took over Crimea. The hope is to get away with it as well, just like Russia.

  181. Don’t forget many big American cooperation can’t survive without the Chinese market……..GM, Apple,… etc..

  182. PatriotEngineerAnalystUSA | Sep 29, 2015, 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm |

    QUOTE: What’s in it for the US?

    COMMENT: Let me assure you, if the Asia-Pacific region is destabilized, or if there is a conflict, every American’s life will change very quickly, and NOT for the better.

    I believe you need to educate yourself on what’s at stake in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in regard to international commerce, sea lines of communication (SLOC), maritime choke points, and the overall military balance of power, especially in the South China Sea and the Malaaca Strait.

  183. The same way we call the Indian Ocean, Sea of Japan, Philippine Sea, Argentine Sea, Chilean Sea, Irish Sea,Gulf of Mexico …. !

    Could someone tell China they misunderstood the translation ??? Is this what is getting to Chinese Government Official heads ? It’s named after me, so it’s mine ??? Hahaha. So … cute !

    I would like to let you know that there’re quite a few Chinatowns in the US, they’re yours for the taking !!! Hahaha

  184. Well they don’t call it the South “CHINA” Sea for nothing.

  185. Yeah…it’s in bond. So?

  186. J. Martin Ceballos | Sep 29, 2015, 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm |

    I can see most Chinese leaving the country!! Modern military requires precision weapons. Foot soldiers are needed at the end for mop up.

  187. After WW2, we don’t fight wars to win.

  188. Sometimes those no wins, no gain wars are the things that keep us safe and able to have nice cookouts in the backyards without worrying.

  189. The other countries should start building their own fake islands….let’s see what the chinaman will do with that, build one right next door to theirs.

  190. Well duh, forget the Middle East…

  191. Very disturbing to learn that our top Fighter, the F-35, has key components made in China! In other words, in a War, China simply stops providing us with parts, thus F-35 is obsolete!

  192. Just like be beat: Korea, Vietnam. Iraq, and Afghanistan ?

  193. Gutless US politicians will get us into another no win , no gain war !

  194. This is none of our business as we are not threatened !

  195. John Stewart Norton | Sep 29, 2015, 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm |

    truly a dumbass

  196. Seems like these pip squeak “nations” can’t defend themselves and depend of US might ? What’s in it for the US ? America needs to rethink this whole business of defending the world for zero sum gain ! Slap a 35% tariff on Chan’s imports and see what happens ?

  197. The Chinese missiles that were shown in the parade earlier this month desperately need real war testing opportunities. Uncle Sam delivers right in time.

  198. roland falworth | Sep 29, 2015, 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm |

    dumbass

  199. if we send in small drones like kimakazi style they won’t have a chance what will really mess them up is stop imports and exports in a month they’ll give in

  200. why build artificial islands, when you can take over other people’s?

  201. yes lets fight china, we owe them money, we cant defeat small poor countries like Iraq, our economy is in ruins, our people are so stupid they cant even type “a million years” right, yes, lets fight the richest largest country in the world, we can defeat them in 15 seconds

  202. China build fake islands. US will bomb it and conquer it…

  203. LOL, George, you’re delusional…you need to slap yourself out of it…are you high on crack?

  204. Expect death from above. Far above. From the secret satellites in orbit. The Nintendo War. Guided missiles straight into Peking. Pinpoint accuracy.

  205. “He is a guerilla fighter. He does his best fighting from the back of a horse. He will take the fight to Three Bears Camp and kill as many of his warriors that he can.” Chief Dan George, The Outlaw Josie Wales. Time to take the fight to China’s door step. Besides China, a few missiles into North Korea will be a bonus.

  206. Oh well remember that China is infringing on International waters, and on their neighboring countries boarders. Most of these countries are very small compared to China. They have asked for help from the Untied States to stop China’s encroachment. The small sum of 40 thousand troops and two carrier battle groups are now in that area. I would say that it is on par to what Russia just did in the defunct country of Syria, by putting in an invasion force of 100 thousand. News update the 40 thousand troops are marine security for war games in the South China Sea area called the Rim of Pacific war game.
    The carrier battle groups will take up defensive positions in the South China Sea area after the war games. 23 countries threatened by China’s expansion are taking part in the war games.
    I just wanted to set the conditions of the troop movements.

  207. that’s not area. its the far east problem. got our ass kicked in veit nam and korea and u want to risk our young men and women for something that is none of our business. wise up.

  208. remember the US has not fought a war alone since the vietnam war when the US lost. everytime the US goes to war they call on allies to fight with them. US did not go to war in syria cause the british saids no and the other european states saids no for the exception of france. the US will not fight china alone and i guarantee that. the US is very good in talking smack but they not that stupid.

  209. The Red China poops on your face and you like it ?

  210. Then China should stop bullying their neighbors. Because Newton 3rd Law is coming back to China :)

  211. 100,000 NUKES dropped in that region willl bring PEACEFUL QUIETENESS for a duration of an
    million years

  212. US by far don’t have much of a force cause their all spread out thin around the world and the US don’t have the money to expand anything. US and its allies could not win in iraq smaller military and you that far gone in your brain to think they will beat china huge military you should get real. china has plenty of money. the US has no money china will make the US dig deeper in debt by spending money that they don’t have to try to keep up with china arms population.

  213. Obama and his new Secretary of the Army will blow kisses at the Chinks.

  214. good luck 90 % of products in walmart, target, etc is made from china to keep cost low and to earn profits for its shareholders. boycotting china products means huge job lost in the US and lost of money in the stock market and their goes your economy.

  215. so you fools want to go to war with China, Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea? haha are yall stupid or something

  216. no matter how capable you think or assume the US are, size is what matters china has the world largest military population and weaponry. the US will not win on chinese territories. 30,000 US soldier is not enough against nearly half a million chinese soldiers. and if china calls for emergency military draft of all chinese citizens then you will have to fight against one billion people. every chinese citizen must go through military exercise once a every year in case of a foreign military invasion

  217. You mean Borrowing……correct.

  218. We can’t expect much out of Obama and his administration….. ! Yes, what a shame !!!!

  219. Although I agree that NO military force is the equal of the American military, anyone with a stockpile of nuclear weapons holds all the force they need. If we were to pummel them into to the ground, what do you believe would be the next action for China (or any nation for that matter)? Unless the govnm’t is hiding a nuclear defense system, there no “winning” that type of conflict.

  220. I didn’t vote for him. Notably, the Chinese did not even get the opportunity to vote for Xi Jinping, so I fail to see the relevance.

  221. Really? When are the next elections in China?

  222. How are you going to do it?

  223. “Xinhua said any aggressive behavior in the disputed waters is the direct consequence of American actions.”

    And of course, making islands just miles off the coasts of other countries and claiming that’s your territory is not an aggressive act. I’m sure China wouldn’t mind if another country decided to make an artificial island close to the coast of China and then claim territorial rights extending from that “island”. Why does China go way out of its way to alienate literally all its neighbors with this illegal territory grab. Makes no sense.

  224. Should not have voted for such a weak man to run the country if that be the case of your internal wishes and desires.

  225. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT trust the cheating, evil, sneaky chinese. You have been warned!

  226. and then george wakes up from a long fairy tale dream and then what?

  227. you know nothing about china. you really sound like a fool

  228. i can tell you know little about china

  229. The world economy is definitely a major concern, which is why the rest of the world does not want a country to go throw sand on reefs, in international shipping lanes, and declare the area as indisputable sovereign territory.

  230. You are talking a lot of B.S.

  231. True, the switch to democracy is seldom easy or quiet. By its very nature, it quite violent. When it does happen, it will be accompanied by a Civil War.

  232. China is slowing moving away from communism. Their subtle movement into a more socialistic view means its only a matter of time before the door to democracy opens up. Problem though… those in power don’t generally like to give it up.

  233. They call me Pringles | Sep 29, 2015, 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm |

    The US generates 1 trillion dollars each month

  234. Tr?nDâmTiên (BletchleyPark) | Sep 29, 2015, 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm |

    …a historical quote from the Chinese leaders back in the old days….way before they even become a ‘regional power’ :
    ‘America is a paper tiger’ ….well may be they are darn right ??

    American policy in the Far East and the way its government handle Xi JinPing’s visit to the US may just further indicate that our government is spineless…what a shame.

    It takes Asian minds and mentalities to be able to read the Chinese minds especially the Chinese commies.
    Through bullying the smaller neighbors, the Chinese commies are following the foot steps colonial countries like Spain, Britain, French, Japan …. had abandon centuries back.

  235. Only a fool wishes for war. I for one just want the fools to stop wishing so hard.

  236. the time to fight china is now,later is more difficult

  237. kick the mother fugger chin-suk-cox azzzzz now

  238. no need to talk to china,talk to the animal?????kick chin-suk-cox azzzz now

  239. Marcos Sambilay | Sep 29, 2015, 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm |

    CHINA is a country that is growing population is out of control and is desperate of having more space to put its expanding population and Oceans are no exception of being reclaimed by the desperate chinese state.

  240. Wait a minute… Wait a minute… China knows their military stuff is “Made In China”, right?

  241. Hospicio Palmares | Sep 29, 2015, 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm |

    Precisely, now were taking the TRUTH nothing but the whole TRUTH!

  242. trash talk and nothing less

  243. they prefer worms and dog meat more than noodles

  244. china is a communist country. CPC is the ruling party. CPC = communist party of china. google it up.

  245. Not so Fatso!

  246. Then you have nothing to be afraid of except your own history. Your stock market. Your leaders might arrest you for corruption. Your job is being cut because of the economic slowdown. You might say something against the party even though you didn’t mean to. You might die of air pollution or poisoning from food or drugs. You might have to fight and die in a war over Taiwan. Your leaders might cause a Great Depression for China. You could starve to death. But otherwise your good.

  247. We’re headed straight for WW3. China will not give up, nor will they back down from their so called ownership of the South China Sea. Mean while MacArthur is rolling in his grave.

  248. There is no democracy in China. What an ignorant claim that the CCP controls anything like a Democracy.

  249. We owe China 1.16 Trillion dollars.

  250. Go stuff Chinese noodles in your mouth and shut up.

  251. Refuse to pay or recognize that we owe China any money and see what they do.
    We owe Chine in the millions if not billions. If the US states that China has become a rogue nations by trying to expand upon someone elses lands or waters and refuse to recognize them as a nation and withhold all funds we owe them.. lets see how they change their direction than.

  252. Go ahead china..,just you try it and see what happens. Any attack on American vessals will be your last.

  253. China has an equal force? What are you smoking?

  254. Oh there will be a conflict for sure.

  255. News feed: Only North Korea is a Communist Country. Others have changed to democracy or a form of… China might have the Chinese Communist party still in charge but their internal structure is no longer anything resembling Communism. Their CCP is more like a gang controlling the democracy below it.

  256. The chess piece’s are being moved across the entire world. Staging for the 3rd big one, All countries are posturing for war. Russia wish’s to fight this battle in the Middle-east, China will have to fight near her homeland. The US will try fighting war abroad with minimal conflict back home. The Korea’s will battle each other. it’s actually very concerning to see this. I only hope that if war breaks out. Nuclear powers will refrain from use of atomic weapons.

  257. It is pathetic that Chine still claims lands or/and seas that aren’t theirs AND goes against the UN Regulations or Laws, which they have signed, that Artificial Islands can not be formed beyond their coast boards. I think its 200 miles out from the mainland coast. They are breaking UN laws for their own selfish needs.

    When they claim they explored it first back so many years ago… one can counter it saying that the Natives in the Islands round the seas fished in the seas long before China explored it. Natives being Philippians, extra.

    I can only compare their aggressive land grab to Hitler during WWII and Stalin after WWII.

  258. You dont know what China is capable of, and you will get surprised when you find that out.

  259. Exactly, far more capable…Iraq took over 10 years and the Taliban are still kicking…and over $2 trillions washed away… High gear? what the heck that this means..going nuclear? Another warmonger idiot talking… Every word that comes out is war this war that…”It’s the economy…stupid!”

  260. Could you imagine if USA never existed how better the world would be.

  261. Wouldn’t you like to know? You will just have to use your hacking skills to find out.

  262. China by far does not have the equal capability of force. Get real Patrick, you communist pig!

  263. You really think China could beat the US? Don’t act like there will not be collateral damage to China if this kicks into high gear. China would be dealing with a military far more capable.

  264. Gee, you must be one of those communist idiots!

  265. This is one of the steps we are taking in the right direction. Actions always speak louder than words. China understands our actions better than our English.

  266. CHINA HAS STIRRED UP THE HORNETS NEST IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA OR WEST PHILIPPINE SEA . CHINA HAS ALMOST OCCUPIED DIFFERENT ECONOMIC ZONES OF SEVERAL COUNTRIES IN THE AREA WITHOUT REGARDS TO THE LAW OF THE SEA OR UNCLOS .AMERICA AND MEMBERS OF ASEAN SHOULD ISOLATE CHINA .

  267. WW3 is imminent because of rogue communist countries, China, North Korea and Russia. Can you imagine if communism never existed?

  268. It wont be just “showing” the force when you deal with China, you will have to use, spend and lose a great amount of it.

  269. the key is to use all the non China Nations and the world to persuade China to moderate the use of extended territorial limits.
    as long as China feels equally threatened by everyone they’l be a little less likely to think they can single out any particular State or Nation.

  270. Seas belong to no one country. This is how it has been for centuries. China will not be allowed an exception. A peaceful resolution would be in China’s best interest. China signed the UNCLO, now deal with it. China is 100% the bully and aggressor of the smaller countries.

  271. the US basically destroyed them flea’s that call themselves the taliban. It is not the US’s job to maintain a country after war. All the US government is doing with China is showing force.

  272. Guess you never heard of something called “Newton Third Law”? “Whenever there is an action of force, there will be a reaction in equal force”.

  273. JUANITO RAMOS fr BULACAN | Sep 29, 2015, 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm |

    CHINA THE FUCKING LIAR PLAN TO KICK AMERICAN NAVAL SUPREMACY IN THE PACIFIC REGIONS AND RULE THE WORLD TOGETHER WITH RUSSIA * I DON’T THINK SO CHINESE * ENOUGH LIAR * philippinesvox3000

  274. all these idiots “contain china…use force…” freaking idiots, US can’t even contain nor force the Taliban from regaining its lost territory and how is the US going to contain china… use your noodles if you have any…

  275. How are you going to do it?

  276. Monkey is talking around again ?

  277. the only way to deal with animal is force,no other choice,chin-suk-cox wont back down unless we deal with chin-suk-cox by force

  278. Vachina only knows how to steal. The US needs to fight back and kick them out of Scarborough shoal for one. This is the most strategic shoal around as it is closest to the Capital Manila and it’s probable FOB. If another country sets up a post equal distance as it is to Scarborough shoal as it is as close to Beijing I think the Vachinese will realize that they are intrusive to a countries sovereign zones. Vachina needs to back off or face increasing assertiveness from other claimant countries.

  279. boycott CHINA products !!

  280. China, the bully only understands one thing — FORCE. China must be surrounded and contained!
