all should have not changed anything in the zone. What would China do? start doing fly byes on commercial jets? If that was the case then it would be time to dispatch fighter jets against China's and force China to back down stating the threat to human life. Then who would have the world looing down on them totally??? CHINA! That is what they deserve to be looked at today as it is with all their aggression against all in East Asia and Southeast Asia. No one backs CHina on any of what they have been doing the last few years with their bold aggression towards everyone!

China needs to understand there are consequences for aggressive behavior and the rest of the world needs to come together and express and give warning to China that consequences will come into play. That is all it would take. China's path forward for wealth depends on participation within the international community, without it China will become nothing as before.

AlexNoaburg, you are trying to justify China's aggression towards other. expansionism against others , as for bettering the lives of its people at the expense of everyone else and disrupting the peace in the region. I say to you, you are a blind fool and must have a thought pattern way off the norm.! As for one trying to advance oneself at the expense of another is totally unacceptable as for any nation that regards themselves as a productive member of the international community that respects the rights of others, which China seems have never been able to do when it comes to the respect of rights for its own people, so of course we should not expect China to respect the lives of others outside their tight grip within its own borders.. No surprise there of course and why everyone can not trust China today since they lack such capabilities proven by China's actions. As for China lifting people from poverty, this is all well and good but you do not use your new found power to intimidate everyone else and that is what China is doing, besides if all these countries China is trying to force into abiding to all that China deems as their right with disregard to everyone else in the region, if these nations pulled their investments back out of China, which was outside investments in to China which gave these leaders of China the ability to pull so many out of poverty, CHina again would collapse back into the impoverished nation they were in before this trend began. China in recent years has shown a trend that is in total disregard in terms of being an active player in the international community, especially when these actions are against those that are well established world players and respected by the rest of the developed world, something China has yet to become as to no one has any trust in China today and always wondering what type of BS they are going to pull next, and that is with everyone continually trying to appease them, trying to give them the benefit of the doubt while appeasing them believing they will eventually come around and play as a member with the rest of the developed world and abiding to international norms that China seems hll bent on refusing to do. Enough is enough ! it is all these other countries that invested into China that gave these leaders the ability to lift the people of China out of poverty and if these same investments came to a halt, so would China's ability to keep its people out of poverty.
Your words are full of it! What China is doing is evil and out of hand. every time we turn around CHina is altering the status quo and trying to push something else upon others. You may have some sort of obscured definition of EVIL, but what China is doing is EVIL! Seems your view leaves out about 99% of what China's actions are.

As I said, the Obama administration is useless, telling US carriers to comply to China's demands??? In other words telling Japan that this is China's territory and for all to abide by China's rules over Japan's Islands, and so what is Japan going to do, stop launching fighter jets when Chinese war planes intrude into the area of Japan's islands?? I really do not get this!
tyvtgo1USNov. 30, 2013 - 03:46AM JST
The US and useless Washington is the cause of China's recent bull sht with this ADIZ issue, from doing nothing with China's moves against the Philippines earlier this year, so now the Philippines has this permanent Chinese presence off their shores and right up against their shores, thanks to Washington's do nothing approach, so why would not China keep up this aggression towards the rest of it neighbors, seeing the US will sit idol on the side lines.
Biben is going to ASK China its in tensions? Great! Keep asking you spinless bstrds! Another Jimmy Carter moment in America. Obama has been a total failure to America as for our world standing, just like reaching some agreement with Iran that accomplishes nothing on the set established goal the US and our allies first set out to enforce leaving Iran every ability in place to go nuclear in an instance, same with the lie with Syria and US response to some red line Obama made so very public. I would not trust any word our leaders here in the US gives to anyone around the world, because who is showing to be a paper tiger around the world today on any international issue and threat? Now China is showing free will into everyone's spaces with no worries or resistance from anyone. Keep asking Biden and do nothing. On top of this inept moment, he praises Japan for doing nothing !!!! Washington is a joke! These politicians can be bought, and Washington has been bought by anyone that flashes cash their way. This has been an ongoing growing trend for the last 30 years to an extreme.

Looks like a Chinese invasion here on Japan Today. Typical nationalism of a society controlled and formed by a totalitarian type of leadership, when from birth, information and resources of all knowledge is controlled and censored by the government with results that we have seen throughout history, leading to this type of society within China still to this day. We have seen these same results in all other restricted countrries around the world led by brutal dictators. ...This of course is to be expected and is condemed and looked down upon by all the developed countries around the world here in the twenty first century which seems China has not moved into yet as a country and especially as a society. If so, the people of China would break the chains that has bound them for centuries and protest and demand freedom and human rights, instead of supporting the imprisonment of those that have stood up for the better of the people of China, the very people that has pushed for the development of China's society. Shows the total ignorance instilled within China's society by leaders.

No matter what, the death penalty is to an extreme for this, just like anything and everything else in China. Why is China still in the mists of the 16th century? I though they were suppose to be on the verge of becoming a developed nation? So much for that fantasy!

Just think if it was not for China's so called peaceful rise with its use of aggression, we would probably not be hearing of this. Oh well those that China is threatening and using aggression against can not sit idol. There was peace in east Asia for many years until China decided it wanted to expand its control from over its people and try to control everyone else in the region. I want to see Japan with a nuclear ability instead of only the rogue totalitarian governments in the region having such abilities to use as threats to the peacefully nations

I have to laugh at this, for over 20 years the Washington sellouts had used the China currency issue in every election, both parties yap yap yap aboput it to the run up of elections, stating again and again, they will brand China a currency manipulator,, use the China issue to gain public support, because the public has always been for these guys in Washington to take action as the manufacturing moved out and jobs decreased and the economy went to hll. But after the elections... nothing... wether it was democrats or the republican administration voted in, the topic seemed to disappear, was lost somewhere. It would be like biting the hand that feeds you there in Washington as they look for those millions and billions in campiagn funds and perks from the corporate funding machines, the US corporations in China making billions.

Japan has the right of any nation to counter those threatening them and the US has been in support of Japan being more actively engaged in its defense. As for allies, Japan has many, all western nations are an allie of Japan, who are you people trying to fool here about the US being Japan's only allie? Japan is a well established partner of all developed nations based on human rights and rule of law within the country and with in international laws, which is not able to be said for some of its neighbors which we could very pointedly point out. Just look at who is nuclear equiped in East Asia.. China and their partner, North Korea, plus there is Russia, plus there are those regimes that China and Russia has continually blocked resolutions in the UN from becomming nuclear armed by vetoing resolutions or causing resolutions to be so watered down that resolutions passed has no real affect of stopping these rogue nations from becoming nuclear. China's moves in the UN is a prime example of that when we look at North Korea, so see who China supports???? Which leads to another stupid issue about South korea and its relationship with Japan today. But that is another topic. Japan is a well developed country economically and socially, and just another positve partner in the family of the international community, lead by their people and should never stay victim to the oppression or aggression of those that show aggression towards them? And yes all in East Asia and South east Asia needs to form and complete a defense treaty to oppose the aggression, not only of the retoric of North Korea but the actions of CHINA! This is only logical with what we have seen coming out of China with their actions and threats of their continual building massive build of their military that is directly aimed at Japan. Should Japan just sit by and watch and accept China's aggressive acts against it and its threat! DEFINITEL Y NOT! The only one I actually see against Japan at this time with Japan expanding its forces is,, yeah you got it... CHINA! the country that has been using its new found might against Japan and others in Sout East Asia that them too look for Japan to build and counter China's mass building of power and expansionist actions and aggressive actions against all in Asia. It is time Japan, time to wake up and stand tall!

all should be aware of the companies that Chinese stateowned or Chinese controlled companies buy into and stop buying those products that have any Chinese attatchment to them. We are getting a very good look at what China state owned companies are doing as for providing the means for China's military build up and China's aggression outwards. China has lied and deceived the world about this peaceful rise , and non-military advances in space. not saying no one else is doing this, but China outright said they were against it up until they gained the ability to do so. China lies again and again up to the point where they are able to reach out into the fields they once say they are against or will not do. If our politicians are not willing to stand up for the safegurads of our societies against ruthless aggressive leaders such as in China, then it is up to the people to stand up against such, as it only hurts our growth of our own social values and economic growth as well, by our politicians enforcing the build up of such rogue regimes such as China as these leaders dictate by force over their society using any and all means possible to keep their people suppressed and servants to the leaders that keep themselves in power over the people!

@mulan. In a war, specifically in this war, the US took control of these territories, fact in history! So they were ours, law or no laws. So being ours as we forcefully occupied them and ownership, we were the ones to give administrated control to whoever we decided, it was our choice as we took claim to them. I do not know how much simpler that can be. You fight a war won it and what you won, it is yours period. Same as Philippines after the war ended and Philippines was an unicorperated territory of the US. When you win a war, it means you have the ownership of what you won. Is that hard to understand, it has been a part of history from the beginning of time. Do not play dumb.

Sorry but after the war, the US was the occupying force and the islands could have started ours. :-) so no matter what history, history from that time should be seen as any other war where those that once had control, no longer does. Sorry China for your bad luck. That why US puts its support towards Japan and gave Japan administrative control of them, again, sorry China for your loss. I have experienced the borrow mindedness of my Chinese friends over time and can understand how they could not imagine if everyone that had lost something back through history, all of a sudden wanted to reclaim it. Could you imagine the chaos that we would be experiencing today!
tyvtgo1USOct. 08, 2013 - 10:13AM JST
Seems the only china support is coming from those that also still support their own suppression and that of the tibetans. No surprise here.
But there are international laws that China does not obide by and one alone is China's claim within Philippines 200 mile economic zone. Go home China, you are thousands of miles from your homeland you thieves. Don't you Chinese understand yet that your leaders have still only one objective, control and power and they have that over you and you like it. Very very much a society based on totalitarian rule and the mindset based on the rule lies, deception, censorship and isolation.

I do make fun of this, but actually no one should blame the people because of the isolation as an entire nation for so many years while the rest of the civil world progressed and expanded socially, even though before China's isolation, still the developed and then at that time the other developing countries were practicing the social etiquette of not only the basics described here, but again as I said, it is not the fault of the people, but of the totalitarian regime in place and the isolation in which they were forced to stay and live, just like today in Tibet and the forced rule there, where China is trying to extinguish Tibetan culture just as when the communists took control of China and tried to destroy Chinese culture, which I still can not actually understand such a crime against Chinese society and even harder to understand is, the people today not saying enough of the communists that had made past generation's life so hard and parents and grand parents of today's generation just incredabley dire and painful, just for power and control. So, besides the manners and social habits and non-existant social behaviors brought about by totalitarian isolation and deception, there is this same society ignorant to their own past and history at no fault of their own but by those still in power over them that are still using these same tactics on Chinese society, yet for their own hold on power over the people and still at the expense of keeping ignorance within society for the good of only the repressive leadership. Totalitarian tactic is to blame, not the people....but the people should take the blame if they continue to support those that still today use censorship and deception to hold control over them and then keep supporting their own suppression with out opposition to it.
tyvtgo1USOct. 07, 2013 - 11:09AM JST
hilarious. I have read articles like this for a few years now. A little bit of lacking social progression. AND KEEP YOUR DMN FEET OFF THE TOILET SEATS!!! THESE ARE NOT HOLES IN THE GROUND OR TOFFS. Do not spit on floors of restaurants, hack up your snort loudlig while dinning with others etc etc etc.... If the govt. Would teach ethics in schools besides the continual brainwashing tactic of hate and deceit promotes by the leaders, Chinese society may just progress some. This is all about CCP rule and isolation tactics of keeping the people their servants. Little puppets of their profits, as they see their torturous leaders.
