Now the Chinese even seek confrontation with Malaysia off Borneo…

When will they claim the Falk ...
Overall, 99% of the Malaysians are friendly to China, and 99% of Chinese are friendly to Malaysia.  Let us not let one LONE  CAPTAIN and one LONE MALAYSIAN change the friendly relations between the two countries.  Malaysia and China have a long history between them, and it takes more than one incident to change it.

A PARABLE OF THE PRODIGAL NEIGHBOR

If a person so coveted his neighbor's orchard that grew fruits by the hundreds of bushels every summer, and occupied it while his neighbor was on vacation, and later had to "protect" "his" property by hiring guards to protect his own house from any retaliatory measures by the neighbor, allowing them to sleep in his living room, his bedroom, and the bedrooms of his sons and daughters, all in the name of "protecting" him and his loot, even to the extent of asking for a known murderer of his kin to extend his protection to his house, would you consider this man a loving parent, doing everything for his family?  Or, would you think of him as a selfish individual, doing everything to keep what his eyes covet, even at the expense of the privacy, safety and peace of his own family?  Would it not be easier to give back the orchard to the neighbor to whom it really belongs, and ask for a share of the bushels of fruits by saying, "I know the fruits come from your trees in your land, but if I picked them for you, can I share half of it for my family's use?"  The rich neighbor probably would have said, "Yes, by all means."

Honesty is the best policy.

The Chinese coastguard simply was trespassing. A most unfriendly act. Most people call this "pro ...

You have a point, not about the unfriendliness of the PLA, but about China's increasingly obvious lack of central command and control of its navy, which is allowed to first act, and then have the central government explain or answer for it.

China gains nothing by sending a coast guard vessel to a part of the South China Sea where it does not claim any sovereignty or EEZ rights.

China loses the friendship of Malaysia, and makes her diplomatic situation worse, by doing so.  In short, this captain deserves a court martial for treason, because what he did was not in line with his duty to defend the sovereignty of China, but the opposite, to incite international opposition to its rightful exercise elsewhere in the South China Sea.  If he is not court martialed, then there is a deep problem in China's military, because it is not answering to its civilian leadership, and may even be acting as an agent provocateur for foreign patrons.
