GTFO of Spratly’s, none of these islands belong to you. If war ever comes. You guys would lose cause the rest of the world will combine forces to defeat you. You guys are the new villian. Stop comparing what Europe/US did in the past. china can’t do those things in this new global economy. #NextEvilEmpire

Exports depend on security for container ships. If both exporters and importers could address this issue rationally, there may be progress.

An excellent reference for English readers is China’s World War II 1937-1945; Forgotten Ally by Rana Mitter, c. 2013 by Rana Mitter, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Anyone involved in foreign policy should read this. Chinese policy makers should also remember that China was a closed country after World War II and very little information was available for decades.

Build oil derricks if you want, but don’t be hostile if a U.S. plane flies over. What is the U.S. going to do? Attack your civilian infrastructure without military provocation? Unlikely. If the world is a business, then war would be completely irrational for China. The only other alternative is a war which China would surly lose.

1. China, as a growing power, is squeezing none of the ASEAN countries but US military existence for sure.
2. US paid cost during WWII to be superpower/supercontrol of the world and the world won’t be paying back for ever.It is time for US to retreat.
3. The way now the US treat China is the way in the future China treats US. It’s US choice.
