How Bellicose Is The Dragon?

Naval Interest; How Far Will The Dragon Swim

  Click on the link to read the entire article, this is truly chilling, the rant of an international outlaw thug state drunk on its own power. It would appear that the Dragon completely discounts Japan, and the Philippines as allies of the United States bound to us by defense treaties, and in lawful possession of islands within their internationally recognized exclusive economic zones. The writer appears to consider Japan a third world nation, and the United States Navy as inconsequential. Clearly the leadership of China has slipped a cog and can no longer be trusted.

  We advise all U.S. investors in China to start moving their investments out; the Philippines and India would be good alternative places to put them. The Chinese government has been drinking cyanide laced cool aid and is about to self destruct everything that made them an attractive investment in times past. The continued aggressive naval behavior and refusal to recognize sea boundaries set by international law is setting them on an inevitable collision course with a powerful coalition of regional navies. Conflict with the combined forces of Japan whose Maritime Self Defense Force is actually a top navy and one of the most interactive navies with the U.S. Navy outside of NATO, the U.S., and Philippine Navies is not a matter of if, but when, if the dragon continues on course as suggested by their own media in the example below. Even if the battle is limited to a naval engagement in and around the East and South China Seas the Chinese navy will quickly learn that skill and experience counts as well as numbers. If Australia and India were to become concerned enough to join in, China would quickly see her numerical hull advantage shrink. Meanwhile, around the world, China's Merchant Fleet will be unprotected and distrusted as a carrier. Having failed to employ her navy on behalf of international order and instead using it to bully her neighbors and start a naval gun fight China will lose attractiveness as a trading partner and return to her prior state of isolation.

  The Dragon has bought its way into many nations around the world. But China has no real friends in the world. Russia toys with China when it suits the Bear's purpose and shuns them when the Siberian border issues come to the fore. The United States by contrast has formal alliances and some real friends, as well as more than just a Pacific fleet.  If a naval war were to break out with the U.S. ,China's merchant marine would be at risk of capture around the world. Nations like Panama with contracts for maritime management services with companies like COSCO Shipping would drop their contracts like a hot a potato. China is holding a big pile of U.S. Debt. if China fires on U.S. Warships she can expect that the United States will cease funding the war effort of a belligerent state and there will be no ill credit effect on the international credit of  U.S. with the rest of the West over cancellation of debt under such circumstances. In short China's leadership has to be crazy to be pushing naval war with Japan and the Philippines, but read about China's attitude from a Chinese source. Stupidity can be chilling.


"The outside world, as well as ourselves, have been adapting to a "tougher" China that has become more resolute in safeguarding its sovereignty and interests. Some predicted this change would ruin the hard-won international situation after China's reform and opening-up process over the past few decades. The prediction did not come true.

The country will only become more skillful in dealing with more provocations. What's more, the Chinese people have increasingly begun to think that some countries have been underestimating the consequences of angering China, and China needs to teach them a lesson. This growing public sentiment may pressure the government to change its diplomatic policies.

Chinese people believe there is unlikely to be any major war in the Asia-Pacific region, because China has no intention of starting one, nor will the US, we believe. A conflict in this area would be a brief brawl, in which the weaker country is more likely to suffer.

China, the most powerful country in this region, has in the past been the strongest voice urging parties to "set aside disputes." The Philippines, Vietnam and Japan, on the contrary, were more bellicose. This is not normal.

Japan has to realize the fact that it has always been a small country compared to China, and in the future it will still only be another Vietnam or Philippines. It is better for Japan to show some respect, or it is asking for trouble."  http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/739456.shtml
