Coast Guard officials take the captain of a Chinese fishing boat into the maritime police station in the port city of Incheon, west of Seoul, on Dec. 12, 2011. The captain allegedly stabbed two Coast Guard commandos with glass fragments during a raid on the ship in the Yellow Sea off Incheon the same day, killing one and injuring the other. A 41-year-old corporal surnamed Lee died at the emergency room at Inha University Hospital, while the other officer, identified only as a 33-year-old surnamed Lee, sustained an injury to his stomach and was undergoing treatment at the same Incheon hospital.

@183.39.45. The situation here, if anything, is more akin to Japanese citizens in the 1920-1930s era acting arrogantly and breaking minor laws in Chinese territory knowing that their "great power" advantage will allow them to get away with it, only with Chinese fishermen playing the Japanese and Koreans playing Chinese. What you do not wish upon yourself, you do not inflict upon others.China may not always be wrong, but given the facts in hand now, the Chinese fisherman is pretty much entirely in the wrong. I"m sure if there are any mitigating or exonerating facts the People"s Daily will be among the first to report it, and we"ll change our view in such a case. For now, let"s not imagine facts that may not be in existence.

The way that the Korean police treated the Chinese fishermen with arrogance should be concerned. They treated them with hatred and humiliated them. armed commandos and civilian fishermen?

Well I believe Koreans and Japanese are prejudice against Chinese because they are cocky and thought they can get away with it with the United States help. But they miscalculated all the times.

@Nick, I think one should not jump to conclusion when one read any news. First of all, you said “I wonder if the Chinese government will allow the boat captain to be tried for murder in the Korean court system or will demand his release and return? “. By saying that you are saying that the boat captain had murdered the Korea Coast Guard commandos. Were you there ? First, it could be the Korean Commandos had storm the fishing boat in Chinese territories and the captain had act in self defence. It could be that the commandos had used great force on the captain and its people. As a captain of any ship, he needs to protect his crew. Also, why were commandos used ? Should not the South Korea navy officers be used in view of the good relationship between China and SKorea ? Should not the SKorea be held responsible for using commandos in the first place. You said “This boat captain just created an international incident, very selfish of him. “ Is that so ? Or had the SKorean Commandos create an international incident ? Is it not selfish of the commandos to do so ? The only sensible thing you posted is this “Something must be done to solve the illegal fishing issue to avoid these problems in the future.”

Ming, in all honesty, were you at the scene to pre-judge the Chinese captain or are you telling the world that China is always wrong and a disgrace even if innocent fishermen were raided similar to the historical invasions of China by others? Let"s hear what the South Koreans have to convey to the world first of all. Yes, xiongmao is reflecting on a good argument; and to date, the japanese are still hiding behind the facts of murders!!
