An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

China Threatens Multiple Western Nations Militarily over South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This morning’s key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com China threatens multiple Western nations militarily over South China Sea China’s claims to the South China Sea are amazingly vacuous Radar towers, hangars, and five-story buildings seen on Fiery Cross Reef from an onboard camera on a U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance plane. (NY Times) Two weeks ago, the HMS Albion, a British Royal Navy flagship amphibious assault ship, was traveling through the South China Sea, en route from Tokyo to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in Vietnam. On August 31, the ship exercised its “freedom of navigation” rights as it passed near the Paracel Islands. Courts have ruled the Paracel Islands to be in international waters, but China has used military force to annex them, in clear violation of international law. China immediately launched a military challenge in the form of a frigate and two helicopters, although both sides remained calm. However, the Albion’s freedom of navigation operation continues to trigger hysterical, irrational threats by the Chinese. In the aftermath of the incident, China made the usual threats, and these statements have been growing more hysterical and threatening as time goes on. China’s embassy in London issued this statement: The [Paracel Islands are] an inherent part of the Chinese territory. In accordance with the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone, the Chinese government promulgated the baseline of the territorial sea of the [Paracel Islands] in May, 1996. The relevant behavior of the British warship violated Chinese law and relevant international law and infringed upon China’s sovereignty. China is firmly opposed to this. We have lodged stern representations with the British side and expressed our strong dissatisfaction. The Chinese side strongly urges Britain to stop this kind of provocation lest it ... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

The Accident That Could Spark a US-China Battle in the South China Sea
 
14:22
The Black Sea bumping incident amounted to little as diplomatic fracases go. In part that’s because the setting differed markedly from the Western Pacific today. The U.S. task force cruised along mainland Soviet shores where no one disputed Moscow’s sovereignty. This was not contested turf like China’s South China islands—ground wrested from China’s neighbors or manufactured wholesale. That muted tempers. So did the slight damage to Yorktown. Nor was there any loss of life. There was little to fire a public outcry in either capital. What would happen should a U.S. Navy warship collide with a Chinese vessel while demonstrating on behalf of freedom of the sea? This hasn’t been a trivial or hypothetical question since at least April 2001, when a Chinese fighter jet hotdogging near a U.S. Navy EP-3 surveillance plane slammed into the American aircraft, kindling a diplomatic crisis between the Chinese Communlst Party leadership and the newly installed administration of President George W. Bush. This aerial encounter furnished advance warning of what might happen on the surface below. Last weekend the question took on new urgency. On Sunday morning a People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) Type 052C destroyer cut across the bow of the destroyer USS Decatur as Decatur made a close pass by Gaven Reef in the South China Sea. Estimates vary, but it appears the PLAN ship passed somewhere within 45 feet and 45 yards of its American counterpart—compelling the Decatur bridge crew to maneuver to avoid a collision. The imagery is striking. Whatever the actual range, terming this conduct “unsafe and unprofessional”—in the U.S. Pacific Command’s anodyne phrasing—understates how close the vessels came to disaster.

China claims most of the sea as its territory, but the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan say parts of the sea belong to them. Tensions have risen over the years and resulted in several confrontations as well as US involvement. The South China Morning Post looks at the origins of the dispute, what these countries are fighting over and what they’re doing to assert their territorial claims.
China's territorial claims | The Economist

Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbours bedevil its boundaries to the east, south and west. Added to www.audiovideo.economist.com in February 2010. Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Over the centuries China has grown and shrunk, and grown. It began as a unified state in a third century BC but became far larger by the time of Mongol rule in the 13th century, and again during the last imperial dynasty the Qing. In 1921 Mongolia's independence took out a huge chunk. Today's map is a legacy of empire building. Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbors still bedevil its borders. Even at the best of times China and Japan often treat each other as rivals. Their differences are sharpened by territorial feuds. A cluster of rocks called the Diaoyutai Islands, or Senkakus in Japanese, is the focus of much bickering. Japan controls them, but China says it should. And how to draw the line between their exclusive economic zones. Japan says it should be halfway between them, China claims the entire continental shelf up close to Okinawa. In 2008 both sides agreed to develop the area together but now Japan's are angry about the Chunxiao gas field, known as Shirakaba gas field in Japanese, where it thinks China is trying to suck natural gas from the Japanese economic zone. Other claims would stretch China's territory deep into Southeast Asia. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia all have competing claims with China here. In 2002 all parties agree to exercise self-restraint but tensions have been growing again recently. China said last year it wanted to develop tourism on the Paracel Islands which are also claimed by Vietnam. Again oil and gas are involved, and China wants a boat service from Hainan. Tensions are simmering again in the Himalayas too. Disagreements here with India led to a border war in 1962. China's recent worries about Tibet seem to be reviving them. China's stepped up its accusations that India is occupying what China calls South Tibet. India calls this region the state of Arunachal Pradesh. To the west India says China is occupying its territory in Aksai Chin. Talks between China and India have been getting nowhere. Finally there's Taiwan. China's long been fearful that the island might make a formal bid for independence. In the mid-1990s China made gestures that alarmed Taiwan and its backer America. America moved to aircraft carriers close to the island is warning to China to back off. Lately things have been smoother; in 2008 director rights between Taiwan and the mainland were launched along with direct sea transport and postal links. China's trying to persuade its neighbors that its rise is not to be feared but its border disputes and feud with Taiwan create widespread unease in the region. Many wonder whether a powerful China might one day try to take by force the land that it sees as its own.

The Modern Origins of China's South China Sea Claim
 
01:00:01
The CSIS Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative and the Southeast Asia Program are pleased to invite you to a discussion with Bill Hayton, associate fellow at Chatham House. Hayton will argue that the current tensions in the South China Sea can be traced back to the muddled origins of China’s claims in the early twentieth century. He will show evidence that China’s claim to islands in the South China Sea emerged in 1909 and was further developed after 1933. He will explain how Chinese academics and officials came to draw the “U-shaped line” by copying Western maps—and in the process incorporated mistakes and misunderstandings with consequences that still trouble the region decades later. Bill Hayton is an associate fellow of Chatham House and a journalist with the BBC. He is the author of The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia, named one of The Economist’s Books of the Year in 2014. His previous book Vietnam: Rising Dragon describes the diplomatic, social, political, and economic issues facing modern Vietnam. Hayton has presented widely on the South China Sea and other Southeast Asian issues in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

That is one of the questions we’ll be asking in this edition of the debate. Meanwhile, the US’s projection of force may put the 2 powers on a collision course.

Duterte will 'go to war' over South China Sea resources, foreign minister says
 
04:42
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has said China will cross a red line if it unilaterally mines the natural resources of the South China Sea, according to the country's Foreign Minister Alan Peter Cayetano. In a speech during a flag-raising celebration at the Department of Foreign Affairs Monday, Cayetano defended the Philippine government from allegations they were taking a soft policy on Chinese militarization of the South China Sea. "(Beijing) said some red lines, we said some red lines ... The President has already said that. If anyone gets the natural resources in the Western Philippines Sea, South China Sea, he will go to war. He said, "Whatever happens, happens." He will go to war," Cayetano said.Tensions in the hotly disputed region have risen in recent weeks, amid reports of the Chinese military landing bombers on their artificial islands for the first time. Under Duterte, who took office in 2016, the Philippines has toned down its rhetoric towards China on the dispute. In April, he publicly declared that he "loved" Chinese President Xi Jinping.It's not clear whether the latest statement marks a tougher approach from Duterte, who's been accused of being too lenient on the issue. Cayetano said China had been told of the "red lines." Manila is pursuing a joint exploration agreement with Beijing for oil and natural gas reserves in their claimed territory in the South China Sea. Cayetano said during the speech his department was repeatedly told to "file a protest" over Beijing's actions in the South China Sea. "We are taking all diplomatic actions at the right time," he said. But he said it was unfair to single out China for its advanced militarization in the South China Sea. "If there is more than one country militarizing, and it's not only the islands, if huge navies are sailing through the area, is that not militarization?" he said. "So we don't even have a definition of militarization."US Navy steps up Cayetano's speech came as the United States Navy sailed two warships within 12 nautical miles of China's artificial islands in the Paracels, as part of their regular freedom of navigation exercises in the contested waters. It was the first time more than one US vessel had been used in the exercises, according to experts, part of a recent escalation in US opposition to China's action in the region.Beijing claims a huge swathe of territory across the South China Sea, known as the "nine-dash line," from its southern Hainan province all the way down to the waters north of Malaysia. To reinforce its claims to the territory, the Chinese government has built a series of artificial islands in the Paracel and Spratly Island chains, complete with radar facilities and airstrips. The Chinese Foreign Ministry has repeatedly stated the territory in the South China Sea falls under Beijing's jurisdiction, to do with as it pleases. But Beijing's position overlaps competing territorial claims from the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan, among others. An i

China Has Confirmed That it is Preparing For The War in The South China Sea China’s air force says it recently sent some of its most advanced fighters and bombers for “joint combat patrols” over the South China Sea. Spokesman for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force Shen Jinke was quoted on Sunday as saying that the planes involved included H-6K long-range strategic bombers. The bombers are considered “standoff” weapons that carry the DH-20 land-attack cruise missile, giving it the ability to hit targets as far away as Australia. Russia and the U.S. are currently the only other countries able to launch cruise missiles from the air. Since entering service, the H-6K has flown multiple training missions over the western Pacific and patrols over the South China Sea. Source; https://goo.gl/ptLYCw

Maritime Security Cooperation In South China Sea: Sailing In Different Directions – Analysis SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- At China’s eighth Xiangshan Forum in October, a major topic of discussion will be visions and the reality of multilateral maritime security co-operation. http://www.xiangshanforum.cn/  The Xiangshan Forum is China’s  ‘answer’ to the U.K. – organized International Institute for Strategic Studies Shangri-la Dialogue. It views the Dialogue and its organizers as preferentially providing platforms for outside countries’ perspectives and criticism of China’s policies. https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/2149061/western-led-summit-chinese-find-controversy-and-clash. Presumably many of the speakers at the Forum will provide an Asian and Chinese perspective on regional maritime security cooperation and the obstacles to achieving it. Hopefully they will address directly or indirectly critical questions like: whose security; security of or from what; and realistically how to proceed. The Southeast Asian claimants (Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam), China and the outside powers like the U.S. have very different answers to these questions. Indeed, they are sailing in the same waters but heading in different directions with different missions. Regarding whose security, will they primarily discuss the security concerns of the South China Sea littoral countries including China? Or will they primarily discuss U.S. and outside powers’ security concerns or what the outside powers think the major security concerns are or should be?  They are not the same.  Moreover these concerns-and their priorities– also differ between individual South China Sea countries – especially including China. For most South China Sea littoral countries, the prime international security issue is defending their territorial and maritime claims. The South China Sea countries including China have obtained independence since World War II and suffered through bitter i... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

South China Sea dispute: Vietnam seeks to boost its military with western warplanes - TomoNews
 
01:02
HANOI, VIETNAM — Vietnam is in talks with European and U.S. contractors to buy fighter jets, maritime patrol planes and unarmed drones, sources said according to a Reuters report. Reuters says Vietnam is looking to improve its aerial defenses as China's continues ot assert its presence in disputed waters. Vietnam has already acquired three Russian-built Kilo-attack submarines and has three more on order as part of a $2.6 billion deal agreed in 2009. Reuters reports that previously discussions have involved Swedish defense contractor Saab European consortium Eurofighter, the defense wing of Airbus Group and U.S. firms Lockheed Martin Corpand Boeing, according to unnamed industry sources. One Western defense contractor told Reuters that Vietnam seeks to modernize its air force by replacing more than 100 Russian MiG-21 fighters. The nation has also ordered about a dozen more Russian Sukhoi Su-30 front-line fighters to add to its fleet of older Su-27s and Su-30s. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter has promised Vietnam US$18 million to help the nation buy U.S. patrol boats. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Major US Army Exercise to Focus on South China Sea
 
05:04
Major US Army Exercise to Focus on South China Sea - The U.S. Army’s major Pacific-area exercise in 2020 will focus on China-based scenarios in the South and possibly East China Seas. The Commander of U.S. Army forces in the Pacific, General Robert Brown, explained the outlines of the 2020 Defender Pacific exercise at a conference in March. While the army focuses on partner-building throughout the Pacific, the high-end combat scenarios it prioritized have generally focused on a conflict on the Korean peninsula. The exercise will deploy a division-sized force to the South China Sea to augment army forces already stationed forward in the Western Pacific and operate in traditional U.S. partner-nations like the Philippines and Thailand, but also may go to Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei. General Brown did not get into the specifics of the exercise, but the geography of the anticipated multinational participants and the U.S. Army’s renewed focus on projecting force across new domains, such as targeting ships to assist the U.S. Navy with sea control operations, suggests that part of the exercises may look at neutralizing China’s fleet and its militarized island bases. China’s bases in the Spratly Islands are about 200 nautical miles from parts of the Philippines, Brunei, and Malaysia. Indonesia and Malaysia are also host to critical maritime chokepoints that control access in and out of the South China Sea. The U.S. Army recently conducted a joint exercise with the U.S. Marine Corps practicing raiding and seizing a small island in Japan’s southwest Ryukyu chain, and another with Filipino troops as part of the Philippines-hosted Balikatan exercise. In addition to training to seize small Pacific Islands, the U.S. Army is investing in long-range missiles and cannon and rocket artillery capable against both stationary land targets and ships at sea. In last summer’s Rim of the Pacific exercise the army fired land-based artillery rockets and anti-ship cruise missiles against a target hulk for the first time. The army is also working on advanced new long-range guided artillery shells that could be adapted for use against maneuvering ships. By 2023, the U.S. Army expects to have an artillery battalion kitted with extended range cannon artillery systems. Prototype tests have already achieved ranges of seventy kilometers, with accuracy out to 62 kilometers, roughly twice the range of the army’s current 155-millimeter cannons. Ultimately the army wants to push the effective range of its 155 mm artillery to 120 kilometers or more. These extended range artillery systems are in addition to the army’s Strategic Long Range Cannon program that hopes to achieve accurate ranges up to 1,000 kilometers, and which the U.S. Secretary of the Army has already mused could be fielded in support of the U.S. Navy against Chinese warships and shore-based missiles.

China vs Vietnam South China Sea: Vietnam ‘moves’ rocket launchers onto Spratly Islands - TomoNews
 
01:06
SOUTH CHINA SEA — Vietnam has positioned state-of-the-art rocket artillery systems into five of their Spratly Island military bases in disputed the South China Sea, reported Reuters, citing Western officials. Reportedly bought from Israel, the Extended Range Artillery Rocket (EXTRA) system attacks enemy targets via a drone targeting system. According to specifications from the system manufacturer, Israeli Military Industries, the 150-kg warheads can strike targets up to 150 km away. Chinese runways and military installations on the Subi, Fiery Cross and Mischief Reef would fall within range of the rocket systems, Reuters reports. Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry told the Reuters news agency that the information was “inaccurate”, but didn’t elaborate further. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The Sea of Azov won’t become the new South China Sea (and Russia knows it) SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ORLANDO, Fla., and MOSCOW — Russia’s brazen seizure of three Ukrainian navy ships on Sunday set off a firestorm of finger-pointing and appeals to international law on both sides. But the clash over the Kerch Strait and access to the Sea of Azov isn’t likely to become a long-running international spectacle like the ongoing maritime feud between the U.S. and China over China’s claims in the South China Sea. The Kerch Strait became a flashpoint when Russian coast guard vessels first a Ukrainian tugboat, then later fired on two accompanying gunboats, attempting to transit the strait. The clash set off a furious round of diplomacy, featuring Western nations and the Russian Federation trading barbs at the UN and in the media while Ukraine began preparing for a wider conflict. In the wake of Sunday’s clash in the strip of water running between the Russian-controlled Crimean Peninsula and the Russian mainland, some wondered if the U.S. or other Western countries should consider a South China Sea-like strategy of “freedom of navigation operations” where warships drive through a disputed feature or choke point to assert international rules and challenge excessive claims. And while Russia is surely claiming territorial dominion over Crimea, the highly contested root of the conflict here, Moscow knows that the Sea of Azov likely won’t turn into the kind of international debacle China created with ludicrously expansive claims in the South China Sea, and that gives Russia enormous leverage. Russia already has internationally recognized rights in the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov that China could only dream of in the South China Sea, a situation presciently described by the head of U.S. Navy forces in Europe, Adm. James Foggo, during an October talk at the Atlantic Council in Washington.

China Has Confirmed That it is Preparing For The War in The South China Sea
 
10:10
China’s air force says it recently sent some of its most advanced fighters and bombers for “joint combat patrols” over the South China Sea. Spokesman for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force Shen Jinke was quoted on Sunday as saying that the planes involved included H-6K long-range strategic bombers. The bombers are considered “standoff” weapons that carry the DH-20 land-attack cruise missile, giving it the ability to hit targets as far away as Australia. Russia and the U.S. are currently the only other countries able to launch cruise missiles from the air. Since entering service, the H-6K has flown multiple training missions over the western Pacific and patrols over the South China Sea Shen said Su-35 fighter jets and other aircraft he did not identify also flew in the patrols. The Russian-made Su-35 has greatly enhanced China’s ability to conduct operations at greater distances and its pilots have grown increasingly proficient through training under actual combat conditions, according to Shen’s statement posted on the air force’s official microblog. source: http://bit.ly/2U3UwEA Thank you for watching.

South china sea: Australia Has Been Blind Too Long to China’s Threat

Australia Has Been Blind Too Long to China’s Threat SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mizuki Okada January 4, 2019 1:00 am (Click here to read the original article in Japanese.) Australia is exercising new vigilance against the threat of China’s influence in Australian politics. The Australian Parliament in late November passed legislation banning all foreign political donations. The bill is intended to curb the influence brought about by large donations from foreign interests, thought to be primarily a result of China’s penetration in the country. The activities of the United Front Work Department (UFWD), an agency of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) promoting China’s political interests overseas, have been of particular concern. Pierre Yang, a Chinese-born member of the Western Australia (WA) Parliament, announced on December 4 that he had canceled his memberships in two organizations, both of which are allegedly affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party’s UFWD. The 35-year-old lawyer was born in Harbin city, Heilongjiang province, China. In addition to the new law banning foreign donations, the West Australian Parliament requires its members to disclose affiliations with any business, professional, or trade union groups. Yang, however, had “overlooked” the obligation to disclose memberships in the UFWD-affiliated Northeast China Federation Inc., for which he is listed as a “volunteer legal advisor.” He also failed to reveal membership in the Association of Great China, which issued a letter supporting China’s claims of sovereignty in the South China Sea. American China Studies expert Dr. Toshi Yoshihara emphasized that the political developments in Australia signify a growing response of Western countries against China’s threat. He noted, however, that Australia’s establishments had been blind too long to the China threat. Pierre Yang’s resignation from two Chinese-related groups came only after his participation was re... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How the West bends the truth in the South China Sea

How the West bends the truth in the South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- At the memorial service held for Republican senator John McCain, former US president Barack Obama praised him for, among other virtues, not “bending the truth to suit political expediency”. I’m afraid such bending of the truth is exactly what some Western powers are guilty of, in challenging China’s right to exercise sovereignty over the South China Sea archipelagos, the Spratlys and the Paracels. The archipelagos were specifically referred to in the treaty of peace between Japan and the Republic of China in 1952. The Rand McNally maps in 1947 labelled the Paracels as “China”. In 2016, an international tribunal went to great lengths to bend the truth, ruling that none of the features in the Spratlys qualified as an island – not even the self-sustaining Taiping Island – in order to strike down the validity of the nine-dash line. Watch: The South China Sea dispute explained The nine-dash line was never meant to be a territorial boundary. So, striking it down in no way negates Chinese sovereignty over the archipelagos. China has never denied innocent passage to foreign aircraft and ships, even within the territorial waters and airspace of the archipelagos, which is what freedom of navigation is about.

The Next South China Sea Crisis  China vs  Britain and France
 
03:58
This video shows you that The Next South China Sea Crisis China vs Britain and France. First Britain, now France. Is China on a collision course with the navies of Western Europe, as well as America? French defense minister Florence Parly has just announced that its warships, alongside British vessels and helicopters, would sail through the South China Sea—waters claimed by China. “Without naming China, she suggested the warships will cross into ‘territorial waters’ claimed by Beijing and envisioned a potential encounter with its military,” according to the South China Morning Post. “At some point a stern voice intrudes into the transponder and tells us to sail away from supposedly ‘territorial waters’,” Parly stated at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue conference in Singapore. “But our commander then calmly replies that he will sail forth, because these, under international law, are indeed international waters.” Earlier this year, a British frigate sailed through the South China Sea. More significantly, last year Britain announced that its new Queen Elizabeth-class carriers will sail there once they are completed in the early 2020s. Also noteworthy was Parly's assertion that more European nations would be joining the freedom of navigation operations, or FONOPS, campaign. “I believe we should broaden this effort even further,” said Parly, adding that Europe was mobilizing more widely to support this endeavor and there were also German observers on board, the South China Morning Post said. France’s showing of the flag comes as the United States and China square off over the South China Sea, of which Beijing claims around 90 percent. A series of recent incidents have highlighted tensions there, including Chinese troops and missiles deploying to islands in the sea zone, and U.S. warships and B-52 bombers entering the area. However, the real question is whether France’s naval threat is more than symbolic. The French Navy has one twenty-five-year-old nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that has been plagued by problems since launch. The navy has about 180 vessels, including four ballistic missile submarines and three helicopter-equipped amphibious assault ships. French weaponry includes sophisticated arms such as the upgraded Exocet missile. Yet when even the U.S. Navy is worried that its vaunted carrier battle groups might not survive an onslaught of Chinese anti-ship ballistic missiles and submarines (not to mention new Chinese aircraft carriers), it's questionable how much France can bring to the fray. While France is paying more attention to the Pacific—something of a change since Dien Bien Phu—its long-range capabilities to deploy in the Pacific are limited, and it has to guard against a Russian threat to European waters. Partnering with Britain may not help so much: the Royal Navy fears that the air defense missiles on its new aircraft carriers are too slow to stop Russian hypersonic anti-ship missiles. And China is developing its own hypersonic weapons. Nonetheless, France has the world’s fifth-largest economy. So if France were to join the ranks of its potential adversaries, then that can't be good news for China.

Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3
 
10:49
Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3 - China’s ongoing military buildup on islands in the South China Sea is akin to “preparing for World War III,” the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee declared on Tuesday. The comment by Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma came during a hearing to discuss the challenges posed by rising military powers China and Russia, a discussion that included ideas on how the people can better understand the threats to the world order that America built and has benefited from for decades. While the U.S. military has a presence in and around the South China Sea and the larger western Pacific Ocean, Inhofe said America largely watched China lay claim to its rocks and islets before turning other reefs into fortifications, brimming with arms and stockpiled with materiel. Beijing’s ongoing expansion into the Spratly archipelago agitates neighboring nations and continues to challenge international law, an assertiveness the U.S. Navy attempts to check through routine freedom of navigation operations, or FONOPs. A Chinese warship nearly rammed the guided-missile destroyer Decatur last fall near contested reefs that are occupied by Beijing’s troops but also claimed by Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines. “It’s like you’re preparing for World War III,” Inhofe said. “You’re talking to our allies over there and you wonder whose side they’re going to be on.” Subscribe Now : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0IlEuu4TA9wq1u60tLMqBw?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://facebook.com/USMilitaryNewsVideos Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/militaryvideos_ Twitter:
South China Sea News: Recent developments surrounding the South China Sea
 
10:34
South China Sea News: Recent developments surrounding the South China Sea - A look at recent developments in the South China Sea, where China is pitted against smaller neighbors in multiple disputes over islands, coral reefs and lagoons in waters crucial for global commerce and rich in fish and potential oil and gas reserves: No 1 U.S., AUSTRALIA HOLD ANTI-SUBMARINE EXERCISE The U.S. and Australian militaries are joining for an annual anti-submarine exercise focused on ensuring freedom of navigation and the “free flow of commerce in the region.” The 2019 Exercise Sea Dragon starts Monday at Andersen Air Force Base in the western-most U.S. territory of Guam, which is considered a tempting target for China or North Korea in the event of a conflict. Slated to run 11 days, the exercise is “an exciting opportunity to ... focus on building anti-submarine warfare proficiency and increase warfighting lethality,” Capt. Brian Erickson, Commander of Task Force 72, was quoted as saying in a 7th Fleet news release. “Exercise Sea Dragon illustrates that the U.S. and our partners stand ready to ensure the freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce wherever international law allows,” the 7th Fleet said. Freedom of navigation operations are a key point of contention in the South China Sea, where the U.S. says it will sail and fly wherever international law allows. China interprets international law differently, and calls such missions dangerous and destabilizing, regularly dispatching aircraft and ships in response to them. Units from the Royal Australian Air Force will join U.S. units throughout the exercise. Four U.S. and one RAAF P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft will be conducting flight operations with support from a mobile tactical operations center during the exercise. They will work against both simulated and live targets, including a Los Angeles-class attack submarine. No 2 TOP U.S. NAVY OFFICER VISITS CHINA The U.S. Navy’s top officer is visiting China this week amid increasing frictions. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson will meet with his Chinese counterpart, Vice Adm. Shen Jinlong, and leaders of China’s Central Military Commission during a visit to Beijing and the eastern city of Nanjing that runs through Wednesday. The goal of the visit, Richardson’s second as head of operations, is to “continue a results-oriented, risk reduction focused dialogue” between the two militaries, the Navy said. “A routine exchange of views is essential, especially in times of friction, in order to reduce risk and avoid miscalculation,” the release quoted Richardson as saying. China’s objections to U.S. freedom of navigation patrols will likely feature high in the talks. Richardson has said such missions highlight the U.S. position against “illegitimate maritime claims.” Deep mistrust lingers between the sides. Last summer, Washington disinvited China from a major U.S.-sponsored naval exercise in what it called “an initial response” to China’s militarization of the South China Sea. No 3 CHINESE NAVAL OFFICER: MORE ISLAND DEVELOPMENT POSSIBLE A Chinese naval officer says China may further fortify man-made islands in the South China Sea depending on threats faced by the outposts., Navy academy researcher Senior Capt. Zhang Junshe last week repeated China’s stance that it has the legal right to take whatever measures it deems appropriate on the islands in the South China Sea, which China claims virtually in its entirety. “If our on-island personnel and installations come under threat in the future, then we necessarily will take measures to boost our defensive capabilities,” Zhang, a senior researcher at the institute, said at a briefing for Chinese and foreign journalists. Pentagon officials have long said that China has failed to fulfill a 2015 pledge by President Xi Jinping not to expand development in the area, where it has built seven islands by piling sand and cement on coral reefs, equipping some with airfields. China says the development primarily serves civilian purposes. Five other governments have territorial claims that overlap with China’s in the strategically vital waterway. Zhang also accused the U.S. of endangering safety and security in the region, citing the U.S. Navy’s freedom of navigation operations, in which it sails close to Chinese-held islands, arousing Chinese ire.

2019 forecast: China's South China Sea strategy | Foreign Brief SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The long term strategy behind China’s military operations in the South China Sea is gradually being unveiled. While its coercive and intimidating tactics seek to erode US regional ties and pressure smaller dispute claimants into deference, its deployment of short-to-long range capabilities — from surface-to-air missiles and anti-ship cruise missiles to H-6K bombers and the Liaoning aircraft carrier — reveals a strategic intent to achieve maritime superiority within the ‘first island chain’ and increasingly project power at longer ranges. This strategy belies China’s broader objective for the Indo-Pacific in the years ahead. According to the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) ‘1.5 war’ doctrine, the potential for a chain-reaction of conflict stemming from regional disputes is prompting Beijing to develop capabilities that can fight a major war at one end of the region while resisting attacks from the other. Given India’s 60,000-strong garrison in South Tibet and the potential revival of the ‘Quad 2.0’ (a US-India-Japan-Australia alliance), it is possible that China may be preparing to resist an Indian attack on the western land frontier while fighting a naval war in the East or South China Sea or the Taiwan Strait. Beijing’s development of a blue water navy and the extension of its strategic presence beyond its immediate backyard serve this purpose. Beijing hopes to check potential adversaries abroad by holding strategic ports and outposts from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, while enhancing its mobility to manoeuvre across different theatres of operation by connecting logistics and supply routes and shortening deployment time. Such developments have significant ramifications to the nature of conflict surrounding the South China Sea. In the event of war, the theatres of military operation separating the South China Sea from other sub-regions of the Indo-Pacific ... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Philippines starts upgrading main S. China Sea outpost

Philippines starts upgrading main S. China Sea outpost SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Philippines has begun long-delayed repairs to a crumbling runway on the largest of its nine outposts in the South China Sea. Satellite images taken on May 17 and released on Friday by the Washington-based Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (Amti) showed two barges with a grab dredger and a backhoe at the sea-swept end of the 1.3km runway on Thitu island. The runway was supposed to have been repaired as early as April last year, but the plan was stalled by concerns over how China would react. China had, in the past, used its Coast Guard fleet to block efforts by the Philippines to resupply and upgrade its outposts in the Spratly island chain in the southern end of the South China Sea. China claims almost the entire South China Sea, a strategic waterway through which about US$3 trillion (S$4 trillion) worth of sea-borne goods passes every year. Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also have conflicting claims in the area. The Philippines won a case in 2016 before an international tribunal dismissing China's claims. But President Rodrigo Duterte has opted to set aside this victory. He said last week he would rather not provoke China because that could only lead to "a war we cannot win". Thitu houses about a hundred civilians and a small contingent of soldiers. The island's runway was the first built in the Spratlys. But the sea, over time, has eroded about 100m of its western end. The runway's surface has also become too soft to land on whenever it rains. Ongoing repairs on Thitu are "consistent with our national sovereignty and jurisdiction", Mr Duterte's spokesman Harry Roque said in a text message yesterday.

Gov’t urged to rethink policy on South China Sea

Gov’t urged to rethink policy on South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Roy Mabasa and Francis Wakefield A Manila-based independent think tank called on the Duterte administration yesterday to rethink its policy on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) issue following China’s recent installation of anti-ship missiles and surface-to-air missiles on Philippine-claimed islands. Photographed through the window of a closed aircraft, an aerial view shows Pag-asa Island, part of the disputed Spratly group of islands, in the South China Sea located off the coast of western Philippines on July 20, 2011. (EPA/ROLEX DELA PENA/POOL / MANILA BULLETIN file photo) “While Beijing’s militarization of the disputed waters has long been obvious, the latest development escalates the tensions in the region and presents a situation for the government to explore other ways of dealing with the increasingly volatile situation,” the Stratbase Albert del Rosario Institute (ADRI) said in a statement. The ADRI said the current administration’s decision to not ‘side with any parties’ to avoid being caught in the crossfire between superpowers should need not be the only option, noting, in particular, Vietnam’s call for China to remove the missile installations. “The most common rationale cited — we are militarily not in a good position to wage war against Beijing —should not be a license to kowtow to China’s every whim. After all, the threat of the use of force constitutes a violation of the United Nations Charter,” the think-tank said. The ADRI pointed out that when the new administration shelved any discussions on the tribunal’s ruling, the militarization in the WPS “continued, unchallenged.” It added that the so-called “pivot to Beijing” away from the country’s more traditional allies needs to be “revisited,” while exhausting all available mechanisms for unilateral, if not global, cooperation. “The installation (anti-ship missiles and surface-to-air missile ... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

China angered by Philippine military's visit to South China Sea island
 
00:44
中, 필리핀 국방수장 남중국해 분쟁도서 방문에 '발끈' Beijing's foreign ministry has lodged a complaint with Manila after Philippine military officials paid a visit to the disputed South China Sea island of Thitu late last week. Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China is gravely concerned and dissatisfied by the visits, adding that it has lodged representations with the Philippine side. He added that the move by Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and military generals ran counter to an agreement by both countries' leaders to deal with the South China Sea dispute in an amicable manner. Manila replied by saying that the island was part of an island municipality under its western province of Palawan, which faces the disputed waters.

South China Sea dispute heating up: China reclaiming land around reef off Philippine coast
 
01:19
Satellite images show that China is reclaiming land around a submerged reef in disputed territory in the South China Sea. The photos show that China has been reclaiming land around Mischief Reef, which lies 250km off the Philippine island of Palawan in the disputed Spratly Islands that are claimed by China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. Several dredgers can be seen at the northern and western edges of the reef. The entrance to the reef has also been widened to about 275 meters, the New York Times reported. "China is creating a great wall of sand with dredgers and bulldozers," Adm. Harry Harris, the commander of the United States Pacific fleet said in a speech in Canberra, Australia. He noted that China has now created more than four square kilometers of artificial landmass. China has rejected criticism of its reclamation activities and said the work falls "within the scope of China's sovereignty", according to Reuters. A Chinese amphibious warship, capable of holding up to 800 troops was also spotted patrolling the reef's southern entrance, according to the New York Times. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3
 
12:24
Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3 - China’s ongoing military buildup on islands in the South China Sea is akin to “preparing for World War III,” the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee declared on Tuesday. The comment by Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma came during a hearing to discuss the challenges posed by rising military powers China and Russia, a discussion that included ideas on how the people can better understand the threats to the world order that America built and has benefited from for decades. While the U.S. military has a presence in and around the South China Sea and the larger western Pacific Ocean, Inhofe said America largely watched China lay claim to its rocks and islets before turning other reefs into fortifications, brimming with arms and stockpiled with materiel. Beijing’s ongoing expansion into the Spratly archipelago agitates neighboring nations and continues to challenge international law, an assertiveness the U.S. Navy attempts to check through routine freedom of navigation operations, or FONOPs.

After China's massive drill, U.S. patrols disputed South China Sea

After China's massive drill, U.S. patrols disputed South China Sea SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Karen Lema ABOARD THE USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT, South China Sea (Reuters) – In a span of 20 minutes, 20 F-18 fighter jets took off and landed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier, in a powerful display of military precision and efficiency. The nuclear-powered warship, leading a carrier strike group, was conducting what the U.S. military called routine training in the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday, headed for a port call in the Philippines, a defence treaty ally. The United States is not alone in carrying out naval patrols in the strategic waterway, where Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies operate, possibly increasing tensions and risking accidents at sea. “We have seen Chinese ships around us,” Rear Admiral Steve Koehler, the strike group commander, told a small group of reporters on board the three-decade-old carrier. “They are one of the navies that operate in the South China Sea but I would tell you that we have seen nothing but professional work out of the ships we have encountered.” Navies in the western Pacific, including China and nine Southeast Asian countries, have been working on a code of unexpected encounters (CUES) at sea to avoid conflict. The USS Theodore Roosevelt’s presence in the South China Sea comes days after China’s massive air and naval drills in the area, in what some analysts described as an unusually large display of Beijing’s growing naval might. China’s growing military presence in the waters has fuelled concern in the West about Beijing’s end game. The United States has criticised China’s apparent militarisation of manmade islands and carried out regular air and naval patrols to assert its right to freedom of navigation in stretches of a sea China claims largely as its own. “This transit in the South China Sea is nothing new in our planning cycle or in a reaction to that. It is probably by happenstance tha... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
