原文标题：China warns US against 'muddying waters' in South China Sea
BEIJING: It was no time to "make waves" in the disputed South China Sea and dance behind a "Pied Piper", China's official news agency warned today, after US said it would shift the bulk of its naval fleet to the Pacific Ocean by 2020.
"It is advisable for some to refrain from muddying the waters and fishing therein and for some others to desist from dancing behind a Pied Piper whose magic tone, as tempting as it is, might lead its followers astray," said Xinhua in a commentary, referring to the sea, which is part of the Pacific and the subject of overlapping territorial claims.
China claims the South China Sea in full, and it is also claimed in whole or part by Taiwan, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines.
The much-hyped China threat to the freedom of navigation in South China Sea is a pure invention, Xinhua said.
"China has seen its political, economic and military strengths growing markedly,fabricating new claims is not in its blood," said the agency.
It was Beijing's "genuine wish" to turn the South China Sea "into a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation," added Xinhua, in the commentary titled 'Not to make waves in South China Sea'.
In a major re-posturing, US today announced it will shift the bulk of its naval fleet including as many as six aircraft carriers to the Pacific by 2020 as part of new strategic focus on Asia.
The decision to deploy more warships to the Pacific Ocean, defence secretary Leon Panetta said, was part of a "steady, deliberate" effort to bolster the US role in the area, deemed vital to American interest recently by President Barack Obama.

History book written in the US in 2040 will read something like this ....... When China was building a strong nation , India had no clue , its ministers were making money , the govt machinery was looting money and people were only busy displaying their acquired wealth by importing foreign goods, building palatial houses and not paying taxes . The nation was sleeping to the threat of China and in 2019 when China attacked India , it had no answer. The war got over in three days.......

When ever Hindu decreased India decided. We lost Afghanistan and Burma from British India as Hindu were few there. 1947 we Lost Pakistan and Bangladesh due to less Hindu. In Kashmir, Kerala and north east problem only due to less Hindu. We will divide again if Hindu decreased in any part of India. Save Hindu save India. because without Hindu there will be no India.

So whats China going to do, china simply cannot afford to disrupt exports to the US which account for 35% of its GDP currently, while Europe and other world economies slow down including Chinas, its threats are simply hot air. Besides China needs to change its policy of belligerence with its neighbors. China has border disputes with all its neighbors with annexation of areas with Mongolia, and of course Tibet, disputes with Japan, Phillipines, Vietnam and lets not forget India, all these nations can have an impact on China with economic consequences if not militarily, China will have to settle all these disputes if it wishes to regain any respect and cordial relationships with these countries.

China is trying to play aggression here when it has no reason to. Beyond Chinese Waters, any neighbouring country can explore oil or gas. America too has no right to place their fleet in strategic regions that would create security problems to other Nations. Both these Nations think they rule the world and are threats to world peace.

One must never forget the lesson from Indo china 1962 history. Already pakis are so vulnerable and Chinese are inside POK (Indian territory) , now Indian government should really increase defense budget and make India strong enough to have their own stand in case of any conflict with china. I believe Chinese understand & respect only muscle power. Instead of getting cot in cross fire we should prepare ourselves and can have a balance relationship with china after solving border & Indian global economic disputes amicably.

China is one country which has territorial disputes with nearly all the Countries it borders. Moreover, being aggressive and possessing one of the two Primary and Powerful Armed Forces in Asia, seeks to project itself as the Superpower of Asia and in the long term the World. So, if the USA seeks to check China's clout, it should be welcomed by Asian countries, so as to ensure a multipolar Asia, which is in the interest of the world.

China has quiet rightly warned America against muddying the placid waters of South China sea,which is of immense geopolitical strategic value to China.South China sea belongs to China,South Korea,Taiwan and Vietnam .Managing it for the benefit of its stakeholders is their duty.The American interference in South East Asia need to be resisted.The US plan to transfer bulk of its fleet including six aircraft carriers to the Pacific region is a resentful move.that endangers the balance of power in the. region.America is concerned about the growing economic and military power of China as it is likely to challenge the American supremacy here and its influence over the countries in the region..China is a rapidly rising power in the world and its rise is welcomed by the Third World countries as it is bound to bring about the most needed balance of power in the International arena with China as a counter weight for the US..

US is the biggest market for Chinese goods and if US shuts this lifeline then Chinese economy would go into tail spin and its economy will be pushed back atleast 30 years back. Chinese would have to live on rats and cockroaches. Yes, US gets credit from China but US will go along with China as long as its moves are not against the US interests around the globe. Also, it US stops paying interest on credit it took from China, there is nothing (zilch) China can do. The Chinese economy will come to a stand still. US is still super power milltarily with high tech defense capabilities which may take another 50 years for China to achive. The US can shutdown entire South China sea and there is nothing zilch) China can do. China is just a huge paper tiger with no real power militarily or economically the mighty USA. Bloody Hell!!

China should mind well that they can act authoratively, arrogantly with surrounding Asian countries but not with USA. Once upon a time Japan tried to lecture USA about their economic policy and got the taste of USA's silent indirect reaction by which Japan economy went down. Now China will taste the same kind of reaction from USA, if they underestimate USA power.USA decides which country they want to bring up and which country they want to bring down depends upon their relationship and reaction from other countries. India should learn something out of it and have a good relationship with USA for their self-interest, atleast at this juncnture. If Romney wins Presidential election, China will face more problems from USA.

Then we curse about Muslim invaders but next day stand in long que for jobs in front of Sultans and Badshas of Arabia. End of the day, either Allah or Jesus has to feed us.

China is damaging its own image by showing over agression, giving other countries like India, Japan, Vietnam etc the reason to increase their military might. China should be contempt with what they have and protect their interests. But being too much greedy is always devastating. Also damaging relations with neighbouring countries will eventually not good for China, if China thinks that they can 'dictate' neighbours by means of their military and economic might. China's economy is driven by exports and if China try to do something fishy in so called disputed China Sea, they rest countries will ban China's ship routes from other sea routes.

So expanding out from the South China sea, we must now take permission from China to put ships into the entire of the pacific ocean??? It is foolishness for china to even suggest such a thing. If the world switches manufacturing to India, Brazil, or other nations, china will not have enough funds to launch a row boat much less attempt to dictate to the US and the rest of the world.

China, India, and other Asian countries need to be wary of Christianity, the political tool which is used by west to spread their empires. I think continent wide rule should be made to check Christian population. We all shout about Muslim population but the actual conspiracy is to hide their numbers by shouting loudly about Muslims. Believe me there are more Christians in India than shown in census reports. Ever heard of the term crypto-Christian?

For USA, China is tomorrow's Al Qaida and Iraq. Today's Al Qaida is yesterday's Japan. Yesterday's Japan was the Arabs of the 1970s. The Arabs of the 1970s were the communists of the 1960s. The communists of the 1960s were the Nazis of before that. And so on... USA needs an enemy. Any enemy. After China? It will definitely be India! Even now they are blowing the alarm sirens. Not to worry. It is all mostly hype for their own people, many of who know the American empire is sinking and are making for the exits.

China doesn't have much of a navy. Yet. Our presence there is taking advantage of this weakness. The only thing it's going to accomplish is another arms race as China will respond by building ships. Which they can do far cheaper than we can. We bankrupted the Soviet Union over this kind of thing. China may repay us with the same method.

What is the proof that the South China Sea belongs to China???? Hope it is not a piece of paper that showed some lines traced by a Chinese sailor. Well if there was no oil, it would not be a part of China. Well still their fishing vessels enter the sea boundry of some the small nation around the SCS, drag the fish out from there as well. Its the fault of the Chinese who act like DADA'S in the region and then cry when they see someone strong coming to help these nations. In fact China has no friends in this world. Their Arrogance will fail them. Their aim is to be a supersuper power on the cost of others. They see the other Asians inferior to them. For the exception of Japan Who wakked them in world war 2. Their aim is to sell their products to keep spinning their factories so as to keep their people occupied. For that they dont care to whom they sell it can be also their greatest enemy in their mind.

At the present situation,China is most powerful country and could dictate terms not only to India but also to US and rest of the world.
