The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “US WARNS China against ESCALATING AIR ZONE TENSIONS” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/biden-says-39-significant-apprehension-39-over-china-050005656.html?soc_src=mediacontentstory).
“US Vice President Joe Biden warned China on Thursday (December 5 2013) against escalating a dispute over an East China Sea air zone, adding that REGIONAL PEACE and STABILITY were in Beijing’s interests”. Of course, China has A VERY DIFFERENT INTERPRETATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“China says all aircraft within it MUST obey its instructions or risk unspecified “DEFENSIVE EMERGENCY measures“. “must” is another example of the “force and pain technique”. Also, CHINA ALWAYS seems to be “Defensive” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“The move PROVOKED ANGER in the region (Asia Pacific) and prompted the US, Japan and South Korea all to defy Beijing by flying military and paramilitary aircraft — including two B-52 bombers in Washington’s case — into the newly-declared zone”. China is INFAMOUS for its ability to “provoke anger” even though they always claim that OTHERS are “provoking” them.
“The US official, who spoke anonymously in order to discuss Biden’s talks, added that it is now up to Beijing to take action “to AVOID the risk of MISTAKE, MISCALCULATION, ACCIDENT or ESCALATION“. CHINA ALWAYS seems to be “escalating” conflicts or HAS A HISTORY OF “escalating” conflicts.
“Biden went on to South Korea late Thursday for the final leg of his three-country trip before returning to Washington”.
“Despite the heightened nationalistic feelings and rhetoric surrounding the issue — which hinges on a DECADES-old dispute over the Tokyo-controlled island group — experts say that any outbreak of violence remains unlikely, as the major trade relationship between the two Asian powers is a strong incentive for both sides to avoid conflict”. This “dispute” has gone on for MUCH longer than “decades”. This “dispute”/NONSENSE started in 1879 (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senkaku_Islands_dispute#Beginnings). ‘INNOVATION thrives where people BREATHE FREELY‘. There is very little IF ANY “freedom” in China especially when it comes to “freedom” of EXPRESSION. Censorship in China is simply RIDICULOUS (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_websites_blocked_in_China).
“On his China visit — his second trip to the world’s SECOND-largest economy since becoming US Vice President in 2009 — Biden also emphasized the importance of FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION and human rights, saying that they were key to its future prosperity”. Again, there is very little IF ANY “freedom of expression” in China and China’s “human rights” record is VERY POOR. “Innovation thrives where people BREATHE FREELY, SPEAK FREELY, ARE ABLE TO CHALLENGE AUTHORITY (and) where newspapers can report the truth WITHOUT FEAR OF CONSEQUENCES“, adding that China “will be STRONGER and MORE STABLE and MORE INNOVATIVE IF it respects universal human rights“. This “consequence”, of course, is being BRUTALLY SUPPRESSED. Again, this WILL NOT happen because we’re talking about CHINA where people CAN’T even ” BREATHE free” with all the SMOKERS in China. On top of this, China DOES NOT “respect universal human rights”. China, as we know, has THEIR OWN version of everything.
“The comments Thursday (December 5, 2013) came after he told mostly young Chinese visa applicants at the US embassy Wednesday (December 4, 2013) that “children in America are REWARDED, NOT PUNISHED, for CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO“. Again, of course, as we know, this ISN’T the case in China. In fact, China is a society where people are often FORCED TO CONFORM. “I hope you learn that innovation can only occur where you can BREATHE FREE, CHALLENGE THE GOVERNMENT (and) CHALLENGE RELIGIOUS LEADERS“. Again, this clearly IS NOT happening.
“Biden’s comments did not go unnoticed by China’s STATE-RUN GLOBAL(?) Times, which often takes a nationalistic tone and dismissed his remarks in an editorial Thursday (December 5 2013)”. “Americans should “NOT HOLD PREJUDICE (?) toward China’s SO-CALLED (?) nationalism“, just like CHINA “(holds) prejudice toward” WESTERN media. Also, “China’s ” STATE-RUN…Times” CANNOT be considered “global”. THIS IS A JOKE. On top of this “smashing Japanese cars” is EXTREME “nationalism” although BUYING the cars that they’ve “smashed” is HYPOCRITICAL (Web-site/URL: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10000872396390443816804578001683049259330). “They may reflect if they need to adjust their behavior when a society as UNDERSTANDING and MILD (?) as China cultivates nationalism toward the US”. “smashing Japanese cars” certainly ISN’T “understanding and mild”. This is, let’s see, AGGRESSIVE & VIOLENT.
Biden went on: “The US and China still have “MANY disagreements“, including some he described as “PROFOUND” such as on “the treatment of US journalists“. THIS IS “profound”, a “profoundly” SERIOUS PROBLEM that China REFUSES TO ADDRESS..
Finally, “Foreign ministry spokesman Hong responded that “we have been providing a VERY CONVENIENT (?) environment for news coverage for foreign media and the working and living environment for foreign media in China is GOOD (?)” This is clearly BRAIN-WASHING. “As long as you are OBJECTIVE and JUST (?), I think an OBJECTIVE (?) conclusion can be reached on that“. CHINA is “objective?” GIVE US A BREAK.
To conclude, Vice President Biden made many legit points. However, as we’ve seen, CHINA can simply to NOT LISTEN. The Chinese have made it clear that they will do WHATEVER they want WHENEVER they want HOWEVER they want. So the ball is still very much in CHINA‘s court. Chinese government officials ARE STILL their DOMINANT selves. They’re still calling ALL the shots. So NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
