Any sovereign country can build their own credible defense posture to defend their own country. Why is China against Philippines building its own defense. Why is China against the help being offered or have been offered by other countries to the Philippines? Does China wants its neighbors to be a weakling so that it can control the country? China is building a Great Wall between herself and her neighbors in which she will regret someday.

Isn't that the same as the American crying fault at the Chinese goods and products and at the end can't survive without the Chinese products.

China, on the other hand, can produce most everything they use. China do not need the Jap's product much. The Americans, on the other hand, can't live without China.

China had been regreting for not invade other nations wild they were strong and inventive. The Chinese only created things for the betterment of mankind, whil the whites used China's invention to kill. China even build greatwall to stop from being attack, let alone invading others. That show how civilized the Chinese people are and the way they think.

China should have fired the first shot in the Scarborough Shoal if it really wanted to invade other nations. Why? Because China is a bully.

Mankind benefited from the inventions of man, they came from all races. The way the Chinese think as relates to the standoff in the Scarborough Shoal is that I can say it's perverted and twisted as if she was the one being bullied. Now that countries from all over favors the Philippines (by way of donating ships) on her issues against China, she should think twice or many times before further alienating the countries around her.

The Americans just stopped the flow of cheap solar panels to the United States. In other words, the Chinese are dumping their solar panes at the expense of American workers. There is also this issue lately about cheap Chinese products made its way to american aircraft and defense related stuff. When the United States tried to investigate and send a team to China they weren't allowed into China. Why? The U. S. can live without China.They can be replaced by India.

China’s toxic dog treats known since late 2011

At the same time, an ABC News TV station in Los Angeles (KABC) reported on Dec. 29, 2011 that the same thing that’s happening now in 2012 also took place just three months ago when it reported how “the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating a dog treat after receiving hundreds of reports of dogs getting sick, some fatally. Over the past month, there have been more than 350 reports of dogs being sickened or dying after eating chicken jerky treats imported from China.”

In turn, the FDA stated that “it is actively investigating the matter and conducting analysis for different contaminates. However, ABC TV News in L.A. reported no results back in late December after the FFDA tested different brands and products.

Thus, the FDA stated “it still has not found any contaminants,” and why the FDA said back at the end of December “that's why a recall of the products has not been issued.”

Thaxton dog’s death an example

These toxic chicken dog treats imported from China stated harming American dogs last year, add the FDA when sharing the latest information on the government website.

For instance, ABC News reported – in a very emotional TV report March 16 – how Kevin and Candace Thaxton's 10-year-old pug Chansey got sick late last year.

In turn, the couple told ABC News that they “assumed at first it was simply old age. The small dog started showing symptoms of kidney failure -- drinking water excessively and urinating in the house. By the time the Thaxtons got her to a veterinarian, Chansey's kidneys had shut down and she was in extreme pain. She died two days later.”

"It was so hard. It was just devastating," Kevin Thaxton told ABC News.

Also, the Thaxtons would go through the ordeal again just weeks later -- leading them to a new theory behind Chansey's death -- when their new Pekingese-mix puppy Penny exhibited the same symptoms, finally resulting in kidney failure.

For instance, Candace Thaxton told ABC News that when she “stumbled on a Food and Drug Administration warning that there'd been ‘an increase in complaints’ about chicken jerky dog treats made in China, she says she knew immediately what had happened to her beloved dogs.”

"I grabbed the bag of treats and turned it over," Candace said. "At first I saw it said 'Manufactured in South Carolina' so I thought I was safe. Then I looked harder and it said 'Made in China' and I just said 'Oh no.' "

The "ships" offered by Japan is of no significant military value. The troubling aspect of the donation is Japan's questionable intentions. Unless Japan shows true remorse for the immense suffering it caused all over Asia in World War II by making reparations to comfort women and by not praying to war criminals, its involvement in military related matters affecting other countries will always be suspect.

Japan was the bully during the last world war but China today is the biggest bully in Asia.

I've used my search engine and I can't find any recent article that Japan bullies another country. China, on the other hand, numerous articles can be found about China bullying her neighbors.

I don't find it questionable if Japan gives support to the Philippines.

I buy foreign made goods when I can and so do most of my neighbours because we care about quality. Any real Chinese can say this as true. Is not about love our own country is about what is best for our children and family.

You seriously think if that was true we wouldn't have done it already?

India's system is rife with corruption and inefficiencies as well as terrible quality that make the Chinese system look like an Utopia.

So you equate the invasion and deaths of over 10 million civilians in Asia by the Japanese to China escorting fishermen with some minor military boats in disputed waters?

The only reason Japan isn't going around and trying to take over is because it was completely defeated and it's new constitution forbid it from having an active military for war.

The main problem is that "crystal ball" in your head seems to be empty of all logic and facts.

Unless you have real examples of Chinese history when they invaded and killed tens of millions of foreign civilians I'd recommend you keep the details of your wet dreams to yourself.
