World over-thinking China's military intentions (2)

(Global Times)

13:49, December 09, 2011

To alleviate this uneasiness requires efforts from both China and the outside world. It is difficult for either side to adapt to each other, but a sense of security must be mutual.

China's restraint is outstanding compared with the powerful countries of the modern era or in history, but some small countries have been taking an unusually strong stance towards China.

As containment efforts by the US and some other Western countries pop up, factors governing security in the Asia-Pacific region begin to meld into each other.

Respecting the sense of security of others is the first step to ensure a sense of security for any country. China understands this and so should other countries. We are all concerned about our security. However, this concern should not go overboard.

China has been pursuing a peaceful rise for decades. Some countries' demands that China not become "arrogant" or "tough" also show that China is neither of those things today.

By history China had never invaded any foriegn countries,wherelse the hypocrite european countries like germany,france,british,spain and japan had all long evil history of invaded foreign countries. History could repeat itself,especially the shameless barbaric japanese until today do not want to admit their evil crime or apologise to china for their atrocities,if given the chance again the evil japan would do it again to china,so China has every rights to become strong to protect their Nation and it"s people. About time China needs respect and full compensation for every Human the evil japanese killed during the world war.

China is a fully grown up nation and does not need the approval of anybody to try to build up her forces.When USA build 10 carriers, hundreds of planes, thousands of missiles...... did they ask anybody for permission?You want to buy or not it is up to you. You do not need China"s permission to have an alterntive view.So, China so go ahead and BE PREPARED. Build what you want to protect your own people and sovereignty. You have a proven record without ursurping into the terrioty of others. If they choose not to believe, just ignore them- the black sheep.

Actions speak louder than words. The U.S. is waging war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, recently Yugoslavia, is trying to start one in Iran & Syria, & in the past Vietnam, other countries. China hasn't launched a war against any country.
