why is the usa so paranoid about a rising china? the reason, a general perception among the americans that china is a potentially hostile nation with aggressive intention. this forms the basis of us policies towards china. how fragile and clumsy could it be for the world's number one superpower to behave in such a callous manner towards another nation on a preconceived idea not based on facts and realities but a feeling, a gut feel. gut feeling was also the same reason for the usa to invade iraq.

the chinese had been a battered nation for more than a centuries, almost colonised by the western powers, including, and yes, the usa. and of course japan, the most aggressive and expansionist country next to germany during the second world war. and since china had broken free from the western power domination, it has been self reliant and developing its own economy and all the necessary functions of statehood, and a strong military force, just in case the foreign powers will do another 8 nation league of nation invasion of china. china has all the right to build its defence force to ward off any foreign invasion.

has china acted in anyway to show that it harbours expansionist ambition since its return to some respectability as a nation? it fought a war with the usa in korea, to assist the north koreans and to ward off american advances to the yalu river bordering china. after the war all its forces returned to china. the american forces remained in south korea, turning south korea into an american protectorate.

the chinese fought a border war with india, marched its troops to the outskirt of new delhi. it could march into the capital city. but the chinese withdrew, after teaching the indian army a lesson not to attack chinese border guards.

it fought the vietnamese and could march into hanoi. but it withdrew after proving to the vietnamese that it could do so, despite suffering heavy casualties. it went into vietnam to halt the vietnamese expansion into laos and cambodia. it curdly proved a point to the vietnamese that though the vietnamese could defeat the mighty americans, they could not defeat the chinese. the point is that it did not stay on in vietnamese soil. all its troops returned promptly back to china.

these were not good enough evidences to prove to the americans that the chinese do not harbour expansionist goals. but the american gut feel is good enough for the americans to pursue a hostile and provocative foreign policy towards china. and the american found the expansionist and aggressive japanese a more docile ally to sleep with. maybe japan is meek in the eyes of the americans. after all it is still an american protectorate, with a hugh american military base in okinawa.

US cannot win against china: tokyo governor

this is the title of an article from washington covering the visit of shintaro ishihara to the usa. the article is reposted in the straits time on 5 nov. the reasoning of ishihara is that usa will lose to china because beijing 'holds no value at all for human life.'

what a crap coming from a japanese nationalist/militarist who insisted on visiting the yasukuni shrine to hero worshipped war criminals. and it gets the temperature boiling after watching elizabeth choy on channel newsasia recounting her harrowing experience while being tortured by the barbaric japanese during their occupation of singapore. strip the japanese of their well tailored suits and all the trappings of wealth and respectability, you will find a vicious animal beneath.

since the communist chinese came to power in 1949, it has never started a war with any nation except when provoked. compares this with the number of countries that the japanese invaded during the second world war and the atrocities and cruelties they inflicted on the people of the invaded countries. did they value the lives of the invaded nations?

also compares how many countries the americans have invaded or started a war since the end of the second world war. the vietnamese just protested to washington a few days ago not to whitewash the gulf of tonkin incident, that it was the us navy that created that incident to launch a massive military campaign in vietnam. and now the invasion of iraq under a false premise of wmd. and next will be saudi arabia, under the pretext of protecting the royal family from an internal rebellion. next on the line for invasion could be syria, iran and north korea. very likely syria and iran will be invaded first under some false accusations. and the usa is famed to be the policeman of the world, the most peace loving nation.

the most dangerous development is the sinister alliance between this evil empire and japan, the wolf in sheepskin. the world is going to be very dangerous with abe and aso and ishihara backing up the modern day samurai in the name of koizumi. the rise of japanese militarism is on the card and all the players are in place. and in washington there is a cowboy that behaves like hitler and surrounded himself with a gang of mafia chieftains. the protest in argentina is a sign of how the rest of the world is seeing through the american hypocrisy.

western view has made china into a hostile expansionist state

the western media, scholars, analysts and leaders have been constantly painting the picture that china, as the emerging superpower, is hostile, aggressive, expansionist and dangerous. on the other hand, the current number one superpower, the usa, is friendly, benevolent and deserves to bash everyone around, and is not dangerous.

let's see where are the chinese military forces and which country they have invaded and which country they are planning to invade. taiwan, yes they threaten to take taiwan by force. now next? where, which country? are they going to attack the usa or japan? by the way, taiwan is a renegage province of china and china has declared that it will try to reunite taiwan peacefully as long as taiwan does not declare independence. in other words, they will not attack unless taiwan provoke china. and taiwan is not a sovereign independent nation.

let's see what the friendly usa did. they invaded iraq. have their forces fighting in afganistan and some east european states. they are planning to attack north korea, demanding that north korea accept their terms on nuclear disarmament. they are planning to invade saudi arabia, syria, iran, sudan. all these are on their cards.

how many countries in the world today has invaded another country and planning to attack a whole list of countries? now is china a dangerous expansionist power or usa? on what basis is china expansionist and on what basis is usa not dangerous?

is there a conspiracy?

chen shui bian is trying everything he can to irritate the chinese leaders, threatening independence which he knows the chinese leaders will not allow.. something that makes the chinese leaders very touchy and must elicit a reaction from them.

then the japanese mafia in koizumi, aso and abe and shintaro.. one will find every opportunity to visit yasukuni.. aso now conveniently called taiwan a country.. these regular agitations to provoke the chinese cannot be done without any thought just like aso himself admitted that he is not stupid.. none of them is stupid.

and all these will only force the chinese leaders to make statements and make the chinese leaders look aggressive.

then rice, bush and his gang will then say, see, china is an aggressive and expansionist country.. the latest from rice is that china can pose a danger to other countries.. which country cannot?

but the hand behind all the sabre rattling in taiwan and japan must be no one else but the usa.. they are the puppet master, pulling the strings and china has to jump, with chen and aso as co conspirators.
