MGigante,, as of yet the US has not done anything and has just sat back and made statements that has not stopped any aggressive moves by China!! Same with Ukraine, tough talk and nothing of substance. Russia can very easily move on through Ukraine at any time with no problem or worries, except of course Ukraine's military , what is left of it, but that is it! Even Europe shows no backbone along with the US.. I do not put much faith in the Obama team, there has been no reason to put any faith in them. To me he is comparable to another Jimmy Cater. But we shall see, but I hope it is not already too late, China has moved into these areas and using aggressive measures to claim the territories as we speak, nothing done yet. Then there is China and Japan, US handed administrative control of the islands to Japan after the war and now say they do not take a side in sovereignty of these islands??????.... ridiculous! So does that give China a message of stopping its aggressive stance?? Not at all, in other words, we do not want to get involved.

life-aint-no-sit-com. One fact being, in all these disputes there is one common denominator and that is CHINA,, and the disputes are almost all far far away from China's shores and right up against everyone else's. Claiming entire seas???? Who does that? But I see you support that.. There you go!

Not a surprise that all conflicts seem to revolve around three countries in the world lately... China, Russia and North Korea... A common denominator being China!

I believe we should just let Russia and China do as they please and forget it!! Seems I read that attitude here by many.. Thing is, Russia and China will never be a friend to the western nations and their allies unless their is something to gain politically or in the position of a step further towards their goal of domination which has been the only issue important to both these countries! It is not like this is some secrete that has not been in our faces since the beginning of time!!! many blind ignorant comments here being made as wishing to empower and embrace these two countries!

I believe our inaction on many fronts lately has empowered both Russia and China as both are aggressively acting against their neighbors knowing they face o real resistance! These so called reset buttons by Obama has lead to total degrading of US influence! Good or bad is in the eye of the beholder... Everyone around the world has sold out to China and look what that has got us, we think sanctions will have some sort of impact, well problem is that the second largest economy, China is Russia's best friend so supporting anyone that supports Russia is in return supporting Russia.. plus throw in Russia's grip on fuel provided to European countries.... seems the West and it other allies, when it comes to sanctions is totally worthless. We are still supporting the threats that are poised against us...

It seems to me South Korea has been hanging out with China a little too much recently! South Korea is picking up China's bad habits! I assume that South Korea puts economic relations on an upper level with China than it sees its relationship with another democratic country like Japan. Very typical these days as I myself look at us here in the US.. at least when looking at our politicians in Washington... China is the greatest threat to peace today but we are all supporting them eagerly! Try and figure that one out!!!! Corporate and political greed!

My account of China's statement??? China is a country that should be stripped of any devices or materials that could be used against another since they are the main aggressors against all in the region and which could be the main aggressor towards the entire world! These leaders of China have no concerns of human life what so ever and based solely on the leader's own power and domination of their people and of all others. They are worse than parasites! They need some n!uclear material shoved up their asterisk

Japan has every right to have a regular military as everyone around it especially with China and its new found aggression against ALL its neighbors.. There should be no one against Japan's right to defend itself and have the means to do so and also come to the aid of its neighbors if necessary! It is totally stupid to say different especially with East Asia today and Southeast Asia today. Look at China's actions that are continual against all its neighbors going unchecked! There is a factor called deterrent, China will not stop until there is a deterrent that stands in its way and for now China is having its way with everyone. Chinese posters apposing this are hypocrites and pawns, Japanese opposing this are stupid! I guess you just wish to roll over and die or yell for mercy... You have got to be kidding!

Thomas, yes as we speak China is doing all it can to take complete control and completely absorb Hong kong! I guess you do not stay up on the news and reports on Beijing's actions towards Hong Kong. As for trying to instill Nationalism classes in HK schools that got wide protests about and they pulled that back. To begin with China suppressed HK's economy trying to right off the bat take economic action to real in the territory under more of a control posture upon HK. Puttin off and putting off direct elections and only letting half the legislature be publicly voted upon... Many things China has done to gain its influence into HK society to strip them of the autonomy they were promised. Yes HK is being absorbed, where have you been?
And yes China deserves nothing, especially Taiwan! When will China's forced ownership of the Tibetans end? Since when does China have the right to own another??????? Since when does China's society believe that they have the right to forcefully own another? When will China and its people come to face the 21st century and join the peaceful members of the international community and stop all its aggressive behavior? And, when will China's leaders stop its suppression, censorship, internet blocking and filtering and stop forcing its people silent mutes?
Who wants to be a part of that??? The Chinese people??? It seems so! Where does that leave China's society when seen by the outside world?

Toshika you are right, I did forget Taiwan... and I have many Taiwanese friends. lol But with Ma and his leaning towards China ... hmmm I do not know if he would take on such an alliance with everyone else! I really do not like him at all!!! Especially in the last couple of days him trying to push through directly the service trade agreement with out a review that is shown to only incorporate more of Taiwan into Beijing's sphere of influence over Taiwan with limited access in areas of China and covering all of Taiwan!!! People are really starting to understand that he is crap and on the path of a Taiwan sellout to China!

Vietnam seems to be taking the right approach, do not make waves until the alliances are built and are firm. Vietnam, Philippines, japan, Malaysia, India, all that has disputes with China should form a security alliance and become very active in the seas and run China's ships to death. Can China chase down every ship in the seas?? I think not!! And.. when they understand they are out numbered , maybe then they will ease up on their aggressive stance or lose face to the Chinese people when they are seen as unable to control the situation as they are wishing to do today!. But actually
tyvtgo1USMar. 16, 2014 - 04:42PM JST
I believe the US has been pushing Japan on this out of date article nine for the last several years as for helping support the security alliance and also to help stabilize the region as for China's growing clout and dominate moves towards everyone in the region.
The question I have always had was... why did everyone invest into the totalitarian state of China to help them build when everyone knows China's communist ambitions all along????? Domination, and forced rule!!!!!!! How did corporate greed filter into the political greed that trumped national security and what was suppose to be moral standing within the world community?

People can make all the excuses they wish for China, but no excuse changes the fact that China has become an aggressive power and is still in the same mindset of the great leap forward, willing to risk everything and anything for that same outlook....POWER and DOMINATION! I am hoping investments will start being pulled out of CHina and China is put back in its rightfully deserved place which is being an isolated state with no resources to continue its aggression against the WORLD!
