USA recognises China’s sovereignty of South China Sea islands

The Americans sailed a warship in the South China Sea as close as 12 nm from the Chinese islands. The big news was splashed across all the major western media that the US was bold and big enough to challenge the Chinese in the waters of China. Big deal! The allies especially the Aquino guy was beaming a wide smile from cheek to cheek and telling his fans that the Americans dare. The Americans are not afraid of China and are beating their chests in front of the Chinese.

So what’s next? The Americans announced that they would sail the South China Sea twice in every three months, to exercise the right of freedom of navigation. The Americans will fly and sail anywhere as they like, in international waters. This must make their allies and believers very happy.

What the Americans are not saying but admitting is that the islands in the South China Sea belonged to China and the Americans would respect and not cross the 12 nm territorial waters of China. Period.

Oh, the Americans are also saying they are not recognizing the Chinese islands. That is true only to the extent that they would not cross the 12 nm line, the Americans would not cross the waters around Chinese islands. This must be something that Xi Jinping and Obama had agreed in his recent visit. The Americans can do whatever they like, have wild dances, parties in the South China Sea, but do not cross into China’s territorial waters. Those are off limits. And the Americans were doing just that and Xi Jinping is not saying a word. There was an agreement for a circus performance by the American sailors to entertain the Japanese and the Pinoys and the need for a pyrrhic victory for the American people, particularly the hawks in Washington. We did it, we showed the Chinese our fist. Just don’t go over board.

The other agreement is that China would continue to do what it wants to do in the islands with no interference from the Americans. It was a waltz of two elephants to entertain the little states in the South China Sea. The realities and new status quo, the islands belong to China and also the Americans would be sailing the South China Sea.

What about the countries around the South China Sea? They would have to live with the new realities. Nothing change except a bigger American presence in the region. There is no issue on freedom of navigation. The Americans can sail to any part of the South China Sea as long as they keep out of China’s territorial waters around the islands. And as a side benefit, the frightened Japanese and Pinoys would welcome the Americans to station troops in their countries. Clark and Subic would welcome the Americans back to give a kick start to the Filipino economy.

"USA recognises China’s sovereignty of South China Sea islands"

I'm still waiting for the day;
"PAP recognises Singaporeans' sovereignty over Singapore and their CPF money."

In today's world, America is "Number 1" and China is a distant "Number 2".

China is rising rapidly, but it is still #2. America, a cuntry full of masterful ADVERTISING, MEDIA and MARKETING giants, a nation of people who write books on self promotion and "branding"....

....they are just running a "campaign" to make sure that The Whole Fucking World is REMINDED THAT:

China--number 2

but America is NUMBER ONE....right here, right now, where is counts. (Sorry lah, the future hasn't happened yet. No pakai.)

Basically America is telling China (taunting):

"Because we are Americans and therefore are free to navigate, we can come to your house anytime we like, stand outside your door and shake our fat white arses in your face. Freedom motherfuckers, freedom!"

However has China contemplated the idea of returning the gesture by sailing up close and personal to the American coasts? Now, THAT, would be high-drama indeed! 😂 😂

China will tell the Americans to dance around the islands, to clown around.
But don't cross the 12nm line. That is off limit. And the clowns know.

news 30/10/15
two Russian naval reconnaissance aircraft flew within one nautical mile of the U.S. aircraft carrier as it sailed in international waters east of the Korean Peninsula, according to 7th Fleet officials.

In the latest in a series of incidents involving Russian aircraft, two Tupolev Tu-142 Bear aircraft flew as low as 500 feet Tuesday morning near the Reagan, which has been conducting scheduled maneuvers with South Korean navy ships. Four F/A-18 Super Hornets took off from the Reagan's flight deck in response to the Russian advance, 7th Fleet spokeswoman Lt. Lauren Cole said Thursday.

Interestingly, the incident took place at almost the exact same time the USS Lassen conducted a sail-by within 12 nautical miles of reefs claimed by China, suggesting possible coordination between China and Russia. While Russia flew close to the USS Reagan, Chinese ships and aircraft tracked the USS Lassen during its time in the South China Sea.

An unsinkable aircraft carrier is a term sometimes used to refer to a geographical or political island that is used to extend the power projection of a military force. Because such an entity is capable of acting as an airbase and is a physical landmass not easily destroyed, it is, in effect, an immobile aircraft carrier that cannot be sunk.

aren't those islands reclaimed a cheaper way of projecting naval power instead of building those carrier

So is Singapore an unsinkable aircraft carrier?
For America, China or India?

Or maybe just an unsinkable whorehouse for Alien Talents.
