I see. China seems to be saying, "It's dangerous and irresponsible to not let us fly all over your territory whenever we like." Or some other such lunatic and arrogant statement.

Interesting how China always claims it can fly or sail anywhere it wants but other nations who do the same are creating danger or encroaching on Chinese territory.

China is angry because they are interrupting their scouting out of new places to create islands.

“Chinese aircraft have the freedom to fly in the relevant airspace in accordance with the law.

They say this yet, they throw a tantrum when the US Navy freely navigates the waters in the south china sea.

We are CHINA! So everybody BUGGER OFF!

Keep it up, China. Nobody in Asia trusts you or wants you near them now except for perhaps the 2 Koreas. Have fun trying to force everybody to like & accept you for the nasty bully that you are.

China is starting to get scary.

I always assumed eventually they would slowly "take over the world" economically, but hopefully peacefully, however it seems they are getting ready with plan B too.

Fully agree. Unfortunately I think it's too late to stop their empire from continuing to expand, but still hold out hope they'll use a 'finland-azation' approach rather than a military one. It's probably true, though, that a country cannot have a strong global economy without having a strong military to back it up. As David Byrne sang, 'same as it ever was'?

The bully get's his way until someone finally gathers up enough courage and slaps him upside the head. Unfortunately that's the way it may have to happen...

Well then China, stop flying in that area & Japan will stop scrambling jets.

China on Thursday called on Japan to stop hampering flights by Chinese military aircraft

Some one has to show the lost chinese pilots the way back to their air space

China needs to teach its pilots how to navigate so they avoid going near or into Japan air space.

Seems now that China is at the highest of its own hypocrisy.

If the roles were reversed I wonder what China would say.

Sad fact is we in the WEST have had a very REAL hand in creating the Chinese Monster we are all seeing now a days. Western govts have since the 80s allowed masses of Chinese students into universities worldwide where they no only quickly gained knowledge but also stole lots of tech & since the net got going in the early 90s China has been thieving left right & centre.

And finally when foreign investors want to set up in China they are FORCED to give up a LOT of know how, knowledge & the world is really starting to pay the price!

All this was done so Wall St, govt & big biz could make $$$$, they didn't care about the monster we have all helped create.

Finally we are coming to realize the scary part, & that how to put this monster out of OUR misery. And with all China's internal problems who knows how & when she will lash out, it could well get real damned nasty & a lot of death & destruction in our future!

China is the large dog behind the fence that barks and barks whenever anyone approaches. What it is saying is" stay away, stay away", and it barks out of fear not as a state of dominance. I wonder how they would have treated a Philippine or Vietnamese vessel sailing around their "islands". Probably boarded and scuttled. But the US is a much bigger dog and like all bullies and cowards China will remain behind the fence when the big dog walks by. Barking,, Barking mad.

What is the diplomatic equivalent of "GFY"?

GW: quite right. And the UK has just added billions to the China domination coffers while at the same time stabbing in the back a long term partner who has been investing in the UK for decades. Japan.

We need to stop funding these people with our business (difficult since China controls their own exchange rate!)

China needs to stop claiming everything. I have seen the total area they are claiming and it really leaves all the countries around it with next to no sea area. They are just greedy. They are large enough!

I remember when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor the United States was telling everyone the Japanese were invading China and trying to take over the world. Now that they have Japan under their thumb, they can start the war and hammer down China. Too bad the US is the largest debtor nation in the world though. They might have to borrow more money from China in order to contain China. It's no wonder that China has sold over $130 billion in US Treasury bonds last month. I'd advise Japan to do the same, while they are worth anything.

Communist Chinese Government needs to stop wasteful spending on unproductive invading Japanese air space and stop provocation against its neighbors.

If Communist Chinese Government wants peace and stability and south and East China Sea and then stop building military base in disputed Island in South China sea and as well as stop provocation in east China sea.
