From the perspective of the Chinese, I think America is rude, and not rational. But I think the
China ChineseĀ army does notĀ have haveĀ enough power to say no. “American army you should go outĀ leave!” And now in theĀ South China Sea there is the AmericanĀ army that is showingĀ shows their muscle. I don’t know whatĀ the China ChineseĀ government will do next. We also have our navy in theĀ S China sea to show our power. Maybe next week or nextĀ month there will be a small battle. But theĀ China ChineseĀ army cannot shoot first. Both China and America are big country countries thatĀ have nuclear weapons. It’s very dangerous. About next action I think all these countries cannot control what happens next. China always wants to liberate Taiwan, but I think America will not allow China to do so. Recently, America also sell soldĀ some high technology weapons to Taiwan…some anti-aircraft missile, to enhance Taiwan’s power. If there is no American involvement, I think Vietnam and Ph cannot say no.
