China’s new city, Sansha



Tension rises in the South China Sea with China officially announcing its newest city in the Paracel group of islands. It has 1000 inhabitants and only 13 sq km in size. The Vietnamese and Filipinos are protesting wildly. For several centuries, being beaten and impoverished by the western colonial powers and Japan, China was a spent force, to be robbed, discriminated and ridiculed. Its land, islands are free for all to grab and China could do nothing about it.

Today, China has risen from the ashes as one of the two super powers in the world and with economic clout matching those of the US. While it had to take things lying down in the past, it need not do so today. It is about time China takes a firm stand on its territorial sovereignty and reclaims all the land and islands lost during the era of its eclipse. Not doing so would be a sign of weakness and will invite more trouble and counter claims from adventurers and aggressive countries.

Building cities in its own territories and islands is a sign of ownership. Dilly dallying is a sign of weakness, uncertainties and ambiguity. It may even weaken its claims on the islands. China must make its claims in no uncertain terms, tension will arise and clashes will be inevitable but unavoidable. Like it or not, tension and clashes are already on the table and not facing it and standing up to its rights to its own territories will be even worst.

China must face the hostility and the contentious parties squarely and make them know that China is not allowing an inch of its territories and islands to be taken away by wild claims. Enough is enough. There is no turning back for China unless it wants to weaken its own position and encourage more adventurism. China cannot fear to occupy its own territories unless it wants to tell the world that those are not its territories. To do or not to do, tension will rise and must be settled, with force if necessary. The countries making claims on China’s islands will want to resort to whatever means to stake their claims, even inviting the Americans to confront China militarily. The more China wavers, the more likely will it precipitate into open conflict. The only way to avoid open conflict is to make a stand that it would stop any attempt to seize its territories even at the cost of war.

I agreed. Time for China to stand up and be recognised. The day China was bullied by every nations in the world is over.

Our ancestors came to Singapore and south east Asia because of a weak China then.

Enough of it! No more! Philippines thought they still live in the 1800-1900s and tried to occupy the yellow shoals with alliance with the USA. They have to back down now and issued reconciliatry statements after sans ah is formed.

A strong China is good for all Chinese in the world!

Japan has just fired a second shot in the Senkaku/Diaoyutai dispute. It first announced to buy it from another Japanese citizen who claimed to own the island. Now it is threatening to send its Self Defense Force to defend the island against China.

What is China going to do about it? Is China in a position to take on the Japanese Navy? If not, China would just have to behave like in the past, meekly accepted the Japanese threat and back off. This would be very damaging to China's claim on the islands.

If China is ready and confident to take on the Japanese, this is the time. Not to precipitate an outright confrontation, China could threaten Japan to keep its Navy out of the disputed territory and keep the status quo. Or to send in its Navy now and prepare for war with Japan.

This is a battle that will be fought sooner or later.

China should do the world a favour and wipe out the nation of lazy COCKROACHES where lying and stealing is a national pasttime.

The Japs are talking to the Russians to return the Kurile Islands. What is China waiting for? If the islands are China's, it is time to demand for their return. Islands seized by Japan under gunboat diplomacy will not be returned unless China has a bigger gunboat.

WOW! A chance to build a resort in the Spratleys.

I think they should get a few Hong Kong entrepreneurs in there, and in a decade or so the place will be rocking. Yeah, and bring their Pinoy maids with them :-)

Ever since the day a senior minister of the smallest member of ASEAN
states asked the Evil Empire, USA to interfere in ASEAN and the South
China Sea issues and to contain China's peaceful development we know
ASEAN is destined to fail and will die a natural death. Now, ASEAN is
hijacked by USA which is now calling the shots and dictating its
affairs and directions via CIA and The Pentagon and so the six nails
have already been tightly hammered into ASEAN's coffin. The Evil
Empire, USA is now having a free hand to not only create troubles and
wars in South East Asia but also in East Asia and in Asia as a whole
to contain China. The Evil Empire will as usual make good use of its
ASEAN gang members as well as its protectorates South Korea and Japan
to fight proxy wars against China. US has been a trouble maker and the
worst terrorist country in the world creating troubles everywhere and
carrying out destructive wars to regime change governments which do
not agree to US dictates or support US sinister policies.

When there is war with China, Asean countries will have the privilege of getting or buying American weapons to upgrade their armed forces. Not a bad deal I think.
