I don't think China really cares what Obama says.

I laughed at that one as well. He told Russia to get out of Crimea as well and look how that turned out.

........or I'll huff and puff and blow your house down....

China doesn't care what he says. The red line in Syria, as bass reminds the Russia-Crimea, the war on terror....no accomplishments just idle threats.

Another meaningless Obama red line . . . .

TumbleDry, I don't think anyone cares what Obama says. He's a habitual liar, but I guess that's better than a lunatic like Trump.

I'm sure the Chinese are shaking in their boots...

U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday demanded China end artificial island building

What a character this guy. Is he trying to redeem face? I'd love to see his "plan" if the chinese do not adhere to.

As usual, the Obama-haters don't even know what is going on.

As for Obama, he's made the right moves:

In the past year, China has rapidly increased in 'land reclamation' projects to bolster their contested claims in the South China sea. The US has responded by strengthening its bilateral military relationships with Phillipines, et all and recently sending navy ships and even B-52 bombers into the area in recent weeks.

China can huff and puff all they want. The message is loud and clear:

Don't even try it.

OMG, Obama "demands" something? Is he drawing one of his famous "red lines" again? Hey, Michelle might even write a hashtag "Give us back or islands". That will show them!

Black Sabbath

Don't even try it.

Don't even try what exactly? To build islands? China's doing that already. The US made similar demands before, and the Chinese kept building it. The only clear message here is that Obama (or the US) simply cannot dictate to all of the countries in this world and tell them what do to...anymore. Just look at the Crimean situation. What is the US exactly going to do if China continues the island reclamation? More sail-bys or fly-bys? Oh yeah, the Chinese are trembling now!

Exactly . . . . And even the hard-core libs will continue to say that the US is being "provocative" by taking such action.

I don't think China really cares what Obama says.

Little by little, I don't think anyone (even bck home in US) really cares what the guy is saying anymore. Its just, "mumbo jumbo."
