Interview – China claims US warship violated Chinese law

Hoses are better than bullets

Hoses are better than bullets

China heading toward a collision with everyone

China heading toward a collision with everyone

[ Note: This foolishness continues to go on where China’s claims to the entire South China Sea has zero international validity as most of the area is way outside China’s border. It can build all the atoll islands it wants but it will not prevail over all the other countries in the regions.

This Chinese stubbornness has rolled the red carpet out for the support of the US helping to protect these other countries from the big bull China, the biggest public relations disaster I have seen China inflict upon itself.

Yes China is working to expand trade relations with them at the same time. But if China is playing a double game here it has given its neighbors permission to do the same.

All of the countries want to lay claim to the energy resources that are close to their shorelines and there is a long history of international maritime law to settle disputes. China cannot be allowed to reinvent the rules to fit its desires without allowing everyone else to do so, the result of which would have to be naval combat which the world has not seen since the Falkland wars.

The obvious solution would involve all the neighboring countries being assured of a fair piece of the pie based on a combination of maritime case law on economic zone calculation and the relative populations involved. China has an unsaid policy of its one billion plus population entitles it to the whole South China Sea.

At the end of the day that claim will be met by all of the other nations naval forces in opposition and China will be the big loser. This is a terrible backdrop to have for the new development bank starting off and the birthing of the New Silk Road. Chins should reconsider its dead end policy and fix it before the damage gets worseJim W. Dean ]


This interview has the highest views of any I have done for Press TV in the past year… 6000+

Beijing is accusing the United States of violating Chinese law after an American warship sailed near a disputed island in the South China Sea. The Foreign Ministry said the Chinese side near the island took relevant measures including monitoring and admonishments. The USS Curtis Wilbur sailed within 12 nautical miles of Triton Island.

The US Defense Department said no Chinese military vessels were in the vicinity of the destroyer. According to the Pentagon, the move is aimed at challenging efforts to restrict freedom of navigation. China and its neighbors have been locked in territorial disputes in the South China Sea. China has repeatedly told the US to stay out of the row.

    Why bring up the law at all? In this period, no one is paying attention. The US especially. Remember “Full Spectrum Dominance” ? What are the implications for “Law” if it is your boot kicking the face of the rest of the world?

    the entire Southeast Asia belongs to, according to China, Central-Nation-State (China). China disregards Vietnam as well as the entire Southeast Asia as satellite states.

    however, we have to be aware who is responsible for China’s economic rise, as well as the loss of American jobs en-masse.

    Certainly not China; they aren’t even dimly aware of it. someone in the White House or Senate, perhaps?

    Maritime law is not comparable as it was not politically created. I interviewed my only WWII merchant marine veteran that got sunk on his first trip as a young purser off the coast of Africa where the currents and wind only offered an incredible trip to Brazil with the early unprepared life boats only provisioned for a few days as sea. He spent some of his last years as an arbitrator of maritime conflicts where they ruled and there was no appeal. Both parties paid the arbitrator fee. I had never heard anything about it before and it was fascinating. Only people with spotless reputations were chosen to do that kind of work which gave everyone faith in the system.

    Maritime case law and International law are just like the UN charter and the US constitution and most other national laws based on the fabrications of the English Radical Philosophers who invented Liberalism and Capitalism by turning the known world (that of the nobility and clergy) upon its head.

    …and because of them, these upside-down phenomena can be noted in things like that wars are called “humanitarian actions/missions”.

    This is literally the world of Satan – Babylon 3.0
