Rampage, I wanted to go forward with this, so feel free to post up your chinese propaganda if you like.

At least, if you meant to be posting on the following:

China warns U.S. not to take sides in sea disputes

China warned the United States not to get involved in South China Sea territorial disputes on Tuesday as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Beijing pledging to pass on a strong message on the need to calm regional tension.

I would really like to follow up with this...

The US is in some rather binding treaties of mutual defense with parties in this dispute, which include, China, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Japan, North & South Korea.

Interestingly enough, perhaps even with 2 parties that are against each other.

This really could get messy, but it seems both the US and China want to keep it cool between each other on this issue, at least for now.

Despite sometimes bitter commentary in China's state-run media, Yang pledged that Beijing would continue to work with Washington to forge "a new type of major country relationship".

"China stands ready to work with the U.S. side, guided by the joint vision of our two presidents, to further push forward the China-U.S. cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit," Yang said.

Rampage, half a trillion a year in trade with the US, is MAJOR for China. China may be a growing power, and anyone that thinks otherwise is foolish, but they are not at the level of the US, or even Russia, in shear world military might.

They have though, done a great job of weaving the world economy into China, to set China up on the same tabletop that the US (UK/France) and Russia occupy.

You have Enemies? Good. It means you've stood up for something in your life.

Rampage - as you've been told countless times - provide your own input in posts. If DC makes the effort to type out his thoughts, its only common courtesy to at least attempt to reply in kind.
