China's recent attempts to assert her longstanding sovereignty, such as in the islands of the South China Sea, that have been claimed even before the PRC, by the ROC government in 1947, is destined to rankle the younger generations of her neighbors, who are not used to seeing Chinese coast guard or naval ships visiting these islands for nearly half a century, and have assumed that their country owned them instead.

But facts are simply facts.

China was under attack for nearly two centuries, starting with the British-led First Opium War of 1839 that began a long train of foreign encroachments on Chinese sovereign territory, that finally began to be reversed with the return of Hongkong to China in 1997, a mere 17 years ago.  Macau followed soon.  And next on the list of illegally occupied islands by foreign powers that mutually grant and accept "administrative control" to each other, without any basis in sovereignty, is Diaoyudao, which is the touchstone of China-US relations, and will determine the fate of Japan, i.e., whether it will be razed to the ground by its own impudence, or prosper as a peaceful neighbor of China.  The Western-backed re-Nazification of Japan practically guarantees the former, unfortunately for the docile "electorate" of Japan, that could not really choose its future, even if it is given the choice between two equally belligerent political parties.  An electorate that accepts a Hobson's choice is not an electorate, but a captive population of serfs made to choose between two options, both provided by their master.  This is the kind of "democracy", and the only kind of "democracy", tolerated by the West, which, of course, the Chinese people have rejected in 1949, and will continue to reject to the end of time.

"countries should uphold sovereign equality and oppose any attempt to oust the legitimate government of a country through illegal means"

Does that mean China will stop interfering with the elections in some African countries ?
