    Recently, China and Philippines have been fighting over Scarborough island in South China Sea. Historically, the island has been Philippine territory, and nobody dared to deny that fact.

    However, from an unknown point in time, China has been claiming that the island is Chinese territory, and recently, the Chinese government banned Philippine fishermen from approaching the island.

    At the moment, China is making a similar situation with Korean island... The Ieodo...

    Historically, Ieodo is Korean territory, but China is claming that Ieodo is Chinese territory for security and economic reasons.
    China has territory disputes with a total of 14 countries.
    If China wants to be a powerful nation, it has to act like one, and not bully other countries, and create bunch of unnecessary conflicts.
    How can we call such a country a G2 nation?

    Back before our masters depended on china's cheap workforce to make them even richer, there wouldn't be any doubt which nations we'd have backed in these border disputes.

    Now?

    Now US foreign policy toward China has changed.

    We all know why, so let's stop kidding ourselves, shall we?

    I'd say about the time the Philippians asked us to remove our Navy base is when they started to have issues.


    China wants stuff and now has the military to claim what they want. Seriously, who's going to take on that large of a country?

    The US could have, before we owed them billions upon billions.

    Russia? They don't want another Cold War, especially not with a country that touches.

    Russia has never had a problem with having a problem with China. Relations between the two have never been exactly chummy.
