The United States stands up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. This is quite admirable that they cover weaker Countries back.

The deployment of surface to air missile is certainly the right move within Chinese sovereignty. What rights have the US shouted its concerns that deployment means militarisation of chinese to raise tensions ? The chinese is doing so in order to send a tough message that the sea/air lane are free passage for commercial not military purposes. US should observe and respect Chinese laws whenever their military hardware wishes to enter and gain free passage through Chinese water to respectfully give Chinese government a courtesy call prior to entering the passage. US needs to understand and respect others' culture when paying a visit that needs to be notified and acknowledged. Is not difficult to do but because the moment they adopt that move to every notifications, they immediately send a wrong signal to its East Asian Allies that US has indeed confirmed accepting the lane is part of Chinese water and therefore fear of losing face and fear that East Asia allies will lose respect for US respect after flexing its muscles with its pivotal return to Asia.
The US needs the water passage to use as bait for allies to conduct military exercise and show that they can go and roam whenever freely they insisted. That has to be stopped since US itself is not following international law. How could you keep knocking on peoples' door and yet claiming you are abiding the law. This is what we term double standard approach the American government has been so good at over the years. Is time they should know Chinese law needs to be respected too...

Whats the point of even having these topics up on a forum?  Any comment that differs from the CCP party line is blocked.  Why not just post what the CCP tells you to think an close it?

An you mods are sellouts.  I would be embarrassed at my failure in life to have to work at CD.
