HOW FAR WILL THE DRAGON SWIM?
THE DRAGON AGREES TO TALKS WITH NEIGHBORS. DRAGONS DO TALK ON OCCASION BUT ALWAYS WITH A FORKED TONGUE AND WITH ONE PURPOSE IN MIND; GETTING CLOSER TO THE PREY THEY ARE ABOUT TO DEVOUR.
Be careful Philippines, Burnei, Vietnam, Japan and others the dragon still intends to devour your exclusive economic zones (EEZs) and totally over throw the oceanic legal regime created by the United Nations Convention On The Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). UNCLOS is very inconvenient for the dragon which has a hunger for oil. The dragon is also very myopic even as regards its own best interests. Instead of promoting UNCLOS and thus orderly off shore oil and gas leasing in the South and East China Seas which would result in rapid development of nearby sources of oil, some of which would belong outright to the dragon and some of which would rightfully and legally belong to neighbors who would find in China a ready market with minimal transport costs; the dragon demands it all. Despite exerting constant and illegal naval pressure on neighbors since 1988 when the dragon opened the "dispute" over soverignity in the China Seas by killing 64 Vietnamese sailors, the dragon now says it is willing to "talk". You can watch a video of the murder of these unarmed seamen by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy2ZrFphSmc
While the dragon speaks with its forked tongue, it is constantly swimming toward you. Is it swimming toward you so that it can hear what you are saying? No, a speaking dragon swimming towards you has exactly the same intent as when you first observed it breathing fire. It wants to get in range to eat you. Retuers has carried the latest story on the talking dragon. We link you to it below. We want you to be able to follow the news of the China Seas so often ignored in America's major new media, and most often totally misunderstood. So we always precede these links with our warnings, we know our reptiles.
China agrees South China Sea talks amid new row with Manila
"China agreed to hold formal talks with Southeast Asian nations on a plan to ease maritime tensions on Sunday as the Philippines accused it of causing "increasing militarization" of the South China Sea, one of Asia's naval flashpoints.
The rebuke by Philippine Foreign Minister Albert del Rosario at a regional summit in Brunei came a day after China's state media warned of an inevitable "counterstrike" against the Philippines if it continued to provoke Beijing.
Friction between China and the Philippines over disputed territories has surged since last year due to several naval stand-offs as China asserts its vast claims over the oil and gas rich sea."
