So, for the past 20 or more years, commercial aircraft have been flying through this region, with established, posted flight plans, carrying passengers to and from China, with transponders signaling their aircraft call-sign, nationality, carrier and aircraft type to all and sundry ... and only now ... China decides that these very same commercial aircraft need to be protected from some invisible Bogey-man who may or may not shoot them out of the sky because he is too stupid to be able to tell the difference between a Boeing or Airbus commercial jetliner and an F-15 Tomcat.|
Basically, what we have here is a country which attempts, every time, to get its own way through threats and intimidation, stating that they want no changes to the status quo, yet, at the same time, sets up a bogus Air Defence Identification Zone, and threatens to shoot down any commercial airliners who don't say, "Yes, Master, I am here". This action, in fact, upsets the status quo far, far more than people realize.
As well, by doing so, and saying, "It's for your own safety. We don't want to see anything happen to you <wink, wink>", they are threatening the lives of airline passengers from all over the world, implying that they actually care about the world's citizens, when in fact, they care only about themselves. They don't give a s**t about anybody else.
No other country demands foreign aircraft identify themselves and announce flight plans when entering an ADIZ. None! No other country takes international airspace and claims it as its own territory. None! But that's precisely what China has done in setting up this bogus ADIZ and telling other countries to remove theirs from "China's territory", even though those other ADIZ's have been in place for 40 years or more.
China says she does not "threaten or intimidate" her neighbours, yet the very act of setting up this bogus ADIZ, when there was absolutely no reason in the world to do so, does just that. It doesn't take much to figure out just who the real bully is in the South China Sea.
Why is there no ADIZ being set up to the south of China? Why is there an ADIZ only in the South China Sea area? If you set up an ADIZ, you set it up along your entire coastline, not just over select portions of it. This whole matter is nothing more than rhetoric, threatening, intimidation, bullying, and BJBS!
