    Just last month China had to withdraw from areas they occupied in India simply because a third world, impoverished country decided to fight the PLA and not take things lying down.

    And you think China should fancy its chances of taking over the assets of a superpower in the high seas?

    US couldn't stop them building those island 10 years ago when they were weaker.

    Now they are more powerfull and will keep increasing their military budget.

    The indian border is empty and they are there only for prestige reason. They ha e no reason to start a war over two empty mountains.

    South China sea is strategical for them. They have to control it.

    Could the PLA-Navy stop the US Navy from patrolling in the South China Sea?

    They failed to hold on to territory they occupied in India and had to beat a hasty retreat and you call them powerful? A poor, backward country just hit their prestige out of the park. And you expect China to fight the US.

    China will fail even more miserably in the South China sea because in the sea they don't have the luxury of throwing thousand of peasants (in the guise of PLA regulars) at the enemy to overwhelm them.

    Their patrols never stoped PLA navy.

    US had to get the fuck out of Vietnam, Irak and Afgjanistan with no victory. What do you expect to do against 1.5 billion people ?

    China is already ruling the south china sea. They have build tens of islands and US can just watch them.

    A "backward" country with T-90 tanks and Su-30 fighter jets. And it was a fucking glacier in the no-mens land between the two countries. Not chinese territory.

    they have maritime militia on 100s of converted fishing boats. With the CG, NAF & PLAN, they now have local superiority there.

    They have a ship building industry that could make thousands of small boats or subs that sit on the surface or near the surface and are armed drones... the US Navy runs into cargo ships and can't handle speed boats in Iranian waters... how are they going to cope with small fast targets in large numbers?

    China Uncensored is, again, a Falun Gong outlet operating out of the USA.

    Made it until 1.12

    'according to international maritime law'

    Big chuckle. You guys need a new shtick

    Bytheway, Duterte knows. It's the usual incitement, de-stabilisation and psy-ops. It fits right into their usual playbook



    America is in a steep decline and all around the world people (and States) are waking up to this reality. The exceptionalists will have to live with it.

    South China Sea: why France is flexing its muscles in the contested waters
    •France sent warships to South China Sea ahead of joint exercises with US and Japan, after its nuclear submarine conducted patrols
    •Willingness to confront Beijing’s claims in the disputed waters reflects French interests in the Indo-Pacific and plans to work with Quad nations

    Dumb Chinese.
    Couldn't they just land on an island with marines, occupy it, and make it a base and overseas territory?
    Killing or relocating natives, or combined?
