外文标题：Should China copy Russia? Netizens mull idea
BEIJING: China's official media is encouraging public discussion about whether Beijing should occupy territories of neighboring countries in the manner Russia has done with Ukraine. Thousands of netizens have joined the discussion on the issue in micro blogging sites.
"China may learn something from the Ukraine situation. However, it cannot copy Russia's practice," Global Times, which is closely connected with the Communist Party, said in a opinion piece. The article suggested "China keeps a sober mind" on the issue but it is capable of advancing into territories of neighbors.
Chinese netizens are suggesting China could start by making advances into Magnolia as the first step, and follow it up with similar moves in other places in the neighborhood.
"Russia has dealt with Crimea vigorously, but China will have to show patience when dealing with disputes with its neighboring countries," the paper said. China is involved in territorial disputes with India, Japan, Vietnam and Philippines besides being strategically close to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, which India considers its territory.
Some are questioning the former Soviet Union's role in separating Mongolia from China in 1945.
"In October 1945, the Soviet Union encouraged northern Mongolia to hold a referendum, and with less than 50,000 voting participants, ripped away 15 percent of China's sovereign territory," a satirist who goes by the online moniker Cui Chenghao wrote to his two million followers in Weibo, China's Twitter.
"Return Mongolia to us, and then we'll support the Crimean referendum," another Weibo user said.
But the official Chinese media is full of praise for Russia's show of muscle that has even frightened western powers, who are now reluctant to interfere in favor of Ukraine.
"The US and EU are reluctant to take decisive counter measures, as they are not sure what Russia's response would be," Global Times said.
Suggesting China's future is best assured by enhancing military power, the paper said, "In international politics, the No.1 element is a country's comprehensive power. What is said is not so important - but after gaining more power, there will be fewer hostile challenges".

LOL this article is so biased. " Occupying territories of neighboring countries " The Author should know that occupying other countries territories is an act of invasion, stop promoting wars, by putting words into other countries. A lot of people will die if one day, Pakistan takes territory from India. Imagine it. Now you imagined it shut up or write accurately.
The situation between what Russia is doing cannot be compared to China History tells that the Crimea was annexed by Catherine the Great of Russia two centuries ago. Then we have the Soviet Union where most of East Europe was under the rule of Moscow behind the "iron curtain". After the Soviet Empire fell it eventually led to the Kosovo war of which Washington D. C./NATO powers were heavily involved. Yugoslavia controlled the Kosovo region and when Albania was formed for the Muslims they leveled down all Christian churches, many as old as the 11th century. Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Croatia, Albania were all formed by that terrible war and it was under the domain of Russia. China does not have even a parallel history to lay claim to any land except that of Taiwan which to this day Beijing does not recognize as an independent nation.
