Compared with India, China has always been the country which initiated an attack against the neighbors. China attacked:
_ 1950 attacked, took over Tibet.
_ 1962 sneak-attacked India.
_ 1967 attacked Burma (over the Chinese students in Burma trying to spread Mao's red-books).
_ 1969 surprise-attacked Soviet Union's border patrol and took over an island.
_ 1974 surprise-attacked South Vietnam and took over Paracel island.
_ 1979 attacked Vietnam to save genocidal Khmer Rouges.
_ 1984 skirmished Vietnam at the border.
_ 1988 attacked Vietnam at Spratley island.
_ Constantly threatened Taiwan and moved missiles across the channel.

In contrast, India never attacked any of its neighbor. I say China is the biggest threat to world peace the world has now. The the world to go on, China must go away.

Arrogant and greedy China uses all the tricks to invade other nations' territories. When China was weak, it just waited the opportunity to grab the land. Just like near the end of vn war, it seized Paracel Islands from SVN when North VN was busy. When Soviet collapsed in 1988, it tried again to steal Spratly Islands from Vietnamese without success. Now, it thinks it is strong enough to ROB, not STEAL like before. It is so arrogant that it claimed the whole South China Sea as its. One thing China doesn't know that the whole world has been aware of China greediness thru it's history. Let's see how China will end up this time.....
