Tensions over the South China Sea are setto escalate after it was reported China has set up weapons on its artificialislands that are still being constructed in the much-disputed region.


It is understood high-level military personnel of countries that are alliedwith Australia are leaning on the nation's navy and air force to conduct'freedom of navigation' missions in a retaliation push to show it did notapprove of China's latest gains.


It comes just days after the superpowerplayed down reports their army was building in the South China Sea, likeningthe controversial island-building with ordinary construction such asroad-building, trying to deflect criticism over an issue seen as inflamingtensions in the region.


t the same venue, however, the Chinese Defense Ministry issued a reportreaffirming the country's more assertive approach to national defense that hasput its neighbors on guard.


The document on China's military strategysaid the navy would be adding 'open seas protection' to traditional remit of'offshore waters defense,' while boosting its ability to counterattack andconduct joint operations at sea.

I dread the day that China and America goto war. It is not going to be pretty.. Neither side will ever back down. Chinais a sleeping giant which I dare not poke. I will always stand behind theAmericans but I think they should choose their battles wisely. This will mostcertainly not end well..

This isn't the first time China has seizedterritory in that area. Back in the 80s there was the battle between Vietnamand China over one of the Islands. Vietnam lost, China stayed and is now fullycommitted to the area.

China, just like Russia, knows the U.S. andthe West are too scared and weak to do anything. It's 1938 Germany all overagain. We learned nothing.
