BEIJING: China strongly condemned the United States after a US warship deliberately sailed near one of the Beijing-controlled islands in the hotly contested South China Sea to exercise freedom of navigation and challenge China's vast sea claims.
The missile destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur sailed within 12 nautical miles (22 kilometres) of Triton Island in the Paracel chain "to challenge excessive maritime claims of parties that claim the Paracel Islands," without notifying the three claimants beforehand, Defense Department spokesman Mark Wright said Saturday in Washington.
Europeans, Americans and Japanese engaged in hegemony in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Chinese feel it is now their turn. And they have the money
China encroaches, on land and sea, yet other neighbouring countries do nothing or can't do anything about it, but these countries will let the USA do their dirty work for them.
US is like a bed bug. It never allows people to have good sleep
China knows only too well how a bully works by invading another humans space!
If the US wasn't here ...China would try to rule the world!
US should keep sending the ship once a month to keep the chinkies in check
so China does intrusion on India territory, what about that
In the present situation, only USA can counter China
US is testing patience of China.......its like tom and jerry
Bad days are ahead for Chinese. God save China from Uncle SAM.
Both countries wants that they are only leader of the world
Chinese soldiers can intrude into indian territory, set up camp and that is not a problem at all in China.. THESE ISLANDS ARE NOT EVEN RECOGNIZED CHINESE PROPERTY.. Well done by the US in dealing this slap to Chinese arrogance
It is hobby for US
except condemning china can't do anything. US is no joke, unlike russia's plane that was hit by turky and russia didn't do anything, US won't keep quiet if any harm is done to any of their asset.
