WASHINGTON: The Chinese navy warned a US surveillance plane flying over artificial islands that Beijing is creating in the disputed South China Sea to leave the area eight times, according to CNN, which was on board the flight on Wednesday.
At one stage, after the American pilots responded by saying the plane was flying through international airspace, a Chinese radio operator said with exasperation: “This is the Chinese navy … You go!”
The P8-A Poseidon, the US military’s most advanced surveillance aircraft, flew at 15,000 feet (4,500 metres) at its lowest point, CNN said.
The incident, along with recent Chinese warnings to Philippine military aircraft to leave areas around the Spratly archipelago in the South China Sea, suggests Beijing is trying to enforce a military exclusion zone above its new islands.

And What About Poking Nose In Indian Territories. So Its Wrong when It Happens To them, But Right when They Do The Same.. Hipocrates

Unfortunately China is bound to prevail over the United States over this issue. Not necessarily because of who is right and who is wrong, but squarely because China owns a major chunk of credit of the United States, and could do to the United States, in a jiffy, multiple times what the United States is trying to do to Russia through economic sanctions. Just the very act of China actively dumping US treasury bonds in the open market would have an immediate effect on the US economy. Unfortunately, the world has become less of who is right, and more about who can get away with what!

Dumping US treasury bonds on the US market would not impact on the US economy in a negative manner at all but would have a positive flow on effect.Google “Why China’s US Treasury Sell-off is good news” on the FP group website dated January 25th 2015.

China buys US debt because of its azure, most sought after debt. It is safe haven. Even Japan with 255% of debt to GDP buys US debt. Even India buys. In fact, most of the world subsidizes US debt. It is for American benefit. America did not say “buy my debt”. Nations bid to buy American debt. This is the biggest misconception.
