China only has military bases in China and Tibet. The reason? To keep the population under communist control.
Yes, China's military bases are in China. Lack of interest in invading foreign countries.

This is a bit of a joke really, have you seen these islands they are tiny and mountainous good for nothing really, but a few fisherman families. China be thankful at the huge amount of land you already have, 10 times more than the japanese, you also outnumber the japnese by almost 10 times, so the chinese have certainly one in those terms, in this old chinese-japan rivalry game. Not only that chinese has succeeded in siphoning not only japans knowledge, but russias, americas, and europes knowledge in a host of areas through its crafty and successful attraction of profiteering millionaire capitalist companies into china to set up shop.

No, only Chinese territory.
China doesn't have 1,000 military bases around the world. Not even one.
and what is Chinese territory...what does it constitute?

very recent history shows that China believes Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines, etc. are part of China, China claims the entire South China sea, what other territory in the heart of the Chinese communists do they believe is theirs? many Chinese have their eyes set on austrailia and just recently I've heard Hawaii and what about all the threats to Taiwan and the horrendous treatment of the Tibetans

what constitutes Chinese territory in your deranged, twisted and evil mind?

and is all that has thus far prevented WW III, many bases are there cause the host nation has asked us to be there (or has pleaded), yes we have been a jerk a few times but good we have done far far outweighs bad, had we stayed out of WWII China today would be part of Japan....this is a fact.

many of those bases are very small....."base" is not even a good definition for many per their small size

recently:

like unprovoked attempts to take parts of Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines, having invaded and taken over a peaceful and buddhist Tibet, threatening Taiwan, etc.

here is a link describing the MANY Chinese invasions of Vietnam over the years:

around 25 Chinese invasions of Vietnam---do you think the Vietnamese believe your lies about how peaceful and harmonious you are?

Why is it when someone in the west goes on a shooting spree and kills people, the world doesn't really talk about it often. But when lets say a policeman in China kills a civilian, the whole world starts saying "China is an evil country" When China has a very low crime rate and 89% of the population is happy and satisfied with the current government? Much higher than some other countries.

No one anywhere in the world believs China to be an evil country. Actually China is highly regarded worldwide. On the other hand, there is lots of negative talk on the international scene about the Chinese state, meaning the controling organ, particularly over the governments policy towards rogue dictators. Gadaffi and Bashar al-Assad. No one in the free world could ever understand why our government could support the mass murder of a civilian population just to stay in power. The west is far from perfect but at least when President Nixon was cought out lying he was forced to resign. Did Hu think of resigning when he was found out stashing nearly 2 billion US Dollars in his 3 secret Swiss bank accounts? Not for one moment I guess.
Anyway I think you are wrong that no one talks about westerners going on a shoooting spree. The topic of conversation in my uni (Nanjing) when I was there was a guy called Ryan in the UK who had shot several people in his home town.

Actually, Taiwan's economic rise was the works of Chiang Kai-shek's son, Chiang Ching-kuo.
No it wasn't, Taiwan bennefited because they are seperate from the primitive Chinese, the same reason why Hong Kong and Singapore did, the further away from the primitive Chinese regime, the more successfull they are

It will be again another miscalculation. Remember Japan's sneaky attack on Pearl Harbor? That was a big miscalculation.
Japan gains nothing by stirring problems with the Islands, but tends to lose everything and everything.
It will be a great mistake if you think that you can count on us as your ally. Your miscalculation will instead result in us giving you a good spanking. Other banana republics around the area will be your burden and not your rescue.
There will be no war with China because China does not need a war to settle things, but a little skirmishing perhaps.
They could be doing likewise in retrun by arresting you guys.
If you have war ships in the area they will just "push" them out literally by their unarmed tug-boats like the did to our USS Impeccable out of the South China Sea and told us not to show up again in the S.C.Sea again. We did accordingly. We could not have fired at their unarmed tug-boats because we knew that we would get return fire from the outer ring of the conflict area missiles fired from an enumerable numbers of Chinese destroyers. Do you want to try it out and find it out for yourselves that it could not happen to you? North Korea sunk a South Korea destroyer and we just let it go.
You will lose all of the Chinese continental market. Any thing that they might need from you, they could easily replace them with Korean brands. In the world market, if Chinese is not prepare to manufacture products to replace yours, they can easily joint forces with Korea to hepl Korean lower the prices to compete all your products across the board world wide.
You will not be able to buy rare metals from China or through us because they will have tighter control.
China could help Okinawan regain the honor of the Okinawans of re-establishing their Ryukyu kingdom which Japan destroyed.
You could easily become a little banana repulic in Asia.
Drop the whole deal, shrink and forget the whole issue.
This issue does you no good.
are you really sure about that?.. are you usa?..

Modernization is bad for Tibet? I guess you're the one trying to bring back the 14th century, slave-owning, feudal Theocracy of Old Tibet. By the way, cultural genocide is when the first McDonalds' opened in Lhasa, Tibet.

You think U.S. can modernize without its railways, which the Chinese laborers built?

Are you nuts? Taiwan's economic rise came mainly from the mainlanders who went there in 1949. Before, it was an economic backwater.
