Punish Philippines over U.S. ties, Chinese paper says

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:07 p.m. HST, Feb 22, 2012

More than 1,000 of Okinawa's Marine contingent could be moved to Hawaii, officials said. Okinawa-based Marines participated in joint exercises with their counterparts in the Philippines in October.

BEIJING >> An official Chinese newspaper says Beijing must punish the Philippines economically for proposing closer military ties with Washington.

The nationalist tabloid Global Times, published by the Communist Party's People's Daily, said Sunday that China must pressure Manila to abandon cooperation with the U.S.

China and the Philippines, along with other nations, are locked in a territorial dispute in the South China Sea, and Beijing sees the U.S. as an unwelcome interloper in that dispute.

U.S. and Philippine officials agreed last week to increase cooperation in various areas including maritime security and defense. The Philippines said it is considering more joint military exercises and a greater presence by American troops.

Like anyone real cares what a communist country like China says. For all their "economic power" they are a backwards managed country. Corruption at the highest level is the standard, bureaucrats take what they want, stick it to the people. Point to remember about their military, they have zero, none, zilch, combat experience. You have a bunch of parade ready Soldiers who have never tasted combat before. Remember back to when the first Iraq war started and all the news stories boasted about the combat experience and power of the Republican Guard. Later on in the first battle, our armored divisions tore through them like they were kids. We hit them further out, better accuracy and didn't stop until they were wiped out. So much for the news papers thinking their word was right. China may have a few good times in battle but in the end, they will fold under US Military power. Just as the Germans, Japanes, Italians, Iraqi's, on and on.

LOL they were even more backwards in the Korean War but they pushed us back. I would hardly consider China as a Iraq.

Remember their culture dates back forever, thus this attitude of superiority. Their population is their asset, in spite of their rule of only 1 child per family. China is force to reckon with in the near future because they have the will.. They will replace us as the the "world policeman" as we have been since England abidicated that title. Sad to say, it is an eventuality that cannot be avoided, as we continue to inundate our future citizens with massive debts that will cause the bankruptcy of our Nation. This need not occur if we see the light quickly and do something about it.

Although not all Chinese tourists are rude and gross, many are and they are like that anywhere they travel to as tourist. I posted a comment 2-3 years ago about their manners and attitude and they haven't changed because that is the way they behave in their home country of China.
