Chinese People Continue to Condemn US Hegemonic ActPeople from all walks of live across China have continued to strongly condemn the US for its hegemonic act to hit a Chinese fighter and express their resolute support to the just stand of the Chinese government.
Over the past few days students of Zhongshan University, Chinan University and South China University of Technology based in Guangzhou have held forums and meetings, to reveal the true hegemonic nature of the US and express deep concern over the safety of the missing Chinese pilot.
Zhou Haiyin, deputy president of the Student Union of Zhongshan University, said: "We will never tolerate the current attitude of the US. The US Government has once again severely hurt the feelings of the Chinese people. We demand the US apologize and make due compensation."
He Xiaohong, a self-employed worker in Qingping Chinese traditional medicine material market in Guangzhong, the capital of south China's Guangdong Province, said indignantly: "We all feel very enraged by the arrogant and hegemonic act of the US Reasoning governs everything. The US only cares about their own crew and the spy plane. But what about our missing pilot? Is he alive or dead now? So far, the US government hasn't made any apology. How is it that there is such an extremely rude and arrogant government in the world? We resolutely support the correct stand of the Chinese government."
Officers and soldiers of a bridge and boat brigade of the Jiangsu Military Area Command in east China's Jiangsu Province all agree that all representations and demands of the Chinese government after the collision incident are reasonable and legitimate.
They all vowed to inject their patriotic enthusiasm into routine training and performance of their duties, in order to maintain social stability with their specific actions.
An expert on international laws of Nanjing University pointed out that the act of a US spy plane intruding into the territorial airspace of south China's Hainan Island and landing without permission at a Chinese airport have violated the international law.
According to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, foreign planes shall obtain permission from a sovereign country before landing at its airport. Without permission, even civilian planes may not fly over the territorial airspace or land on the oil of another country, let alone surveillance planes.
Liu Yuexin, a businessman in Guiyang, the capital of southwest China's Guizhou Province, said: "The US always advocates 'democracy and human rights'. However, their spy plane openly intruded into China's territorial airspace, hit a Chinese fighter and left a Chinese pilot missing. Where are their ¡®democracy and human rights'now?"
