"The US seems to have sketched out vague security guarantees for countries such as Vietnam and the Philippines. Washington therefore is able to further flare up conflicts in the South China Sea so as to counter China,"

Ji Qiufeng, a professor at the School of Foreign Relations at Nanjing University, told the Global Times.


"It seems that Washington is trying to create dissension over the South China Sea issue, a strategy to hinder China's presence in the region and facilitate its ambitions in Asia,"


Zhuang Guotu, director of the Center for Southeast Asia Studies at Xiamen University, told the Global Times that the US is "rocking the boat" as tensions are easing overall.

"Measures such as maintaining communication and avoiding unilateral actions on marine resources exploration can help ease the tension, although the issue may not be solved in a short time,"

Zha Daojiong, a professor at the School of International Studies of Peking University, said the opportunity for negotiations remains open and that the situation is not likely to deteriorate.

"The US already has military bases in South Korea and Japan, but the seemingly redundant presence in Australia is closer to the South China Sea, a possible target of this expansion. China needs to learn a diplomatic lesson from the South China Sea issue. It is time to rethink and repair relations with those countries involved to deal with their affiliation with the US,"

Shi Yinhong, director of the Center of US Studies at the Renmin University of China, told the Global Times that the expansion is another move to contain China despite its mainly symbolic nature.

"Although the US has shifted its focus back to the Asia-Pacific region, its impact is still limited. The priorities of the White House are still domestic, and we cannot rule out this re-engagement is a campaign tactic for Obama,"

Yu Tiejun, a professor at the School of International Studies of the Peking University, noted that the US has shown some anxiety over the rapid growth of China.

Peaceful ideals under fire in S.China Sea

Global Times | April 12, 2012 00:55
By Global Times

A Philippine warship was at a standoff with a Chinese patrol vessel and fishing boat Wednesday around Huangyan Islet of the Nansha Islands Wednesday. The attempt by the Philippines to expel and capture Chinese boats was not successful. The standoff continued as of last night while both sides expressed wishes to end the impasse peacefully.

The standoff happened in China's conventional fishing areas. The Philippines has never had actual control of the Huangyan Islet. The response of the Chinese side has followed normal procedure when its assets were under military threat by the Philippines.

The patrol vessel can effectively protect Chinese fishing boats and crew without the participation of China's navy as the incident has showed. This is progress in China exerting sovereignty over the Nansha Islands.

This reaction would change the expectations of other parties concerning China's attitude toward South China Sea disputes. Peace and stability in the area are still what China strives for but it will not make unprincipled concessions to the recklessness of neighboring countries. A resolute response to protecting its interests should be expected from China.

The disputes are more complex when outside participants get involved. The US is encouraging the Philippines and Vietnam to take more risks.

Charting troubled waters needs a clear action plan. Disputes and harassment should not deter Chinese fishermen from their conventional fisheries. Unprotected fishing boats are often detained by neighboring countries. They need close escorts by patrol vessels, including to help with confrontations at times like these.

If Chinese fishing boats or vessels are attacked by navy ships belonging to the Philippines or Vietnam, it will signal the escalation of disputes. A response from the Chinese navy should be expected. Should a military clash happen in South China Sea, China will not fire the first shot but will react accordingly.

China is not willing to solve South China Sea disputes through military means. It has the patience to work out solutions with the countries concerned through negotiation. It has remained reserved in protecting its interests.

The Philippines is taking a radical approach to divert domestic pressure. But China will not compromise its principles to appease its fitful neighbor.

In today's world, war is not a good option.  Much can be achieved through a meaningful dialogue.  Whether its a big country strikes a small one or a small one strikes a big one.  There are surely painful memories for both.

Take Philippines in our side and tell USA to bug out.  USA is the bone of contention in all the problems around the world.  Including its own.
if you can be happy with what you have, dont wait for more
