Chinese veteran soldiers staged protest, calling for "war" against Vietnam, for the claim that Vietnam disrupting the Chinese rigging oil in one of the Paracel islands.

The former Chinese war-fighters against Vietnam in 1979, advocate "revenge" against Vietnam for the war that lead to thousands officers killed between China and Vietnam, according to Thai newspaper, Bangkok Post.

"As Chinese citizens, of course we wanted to go to the front. A lot of my army friends were killed. Many members of my platoon were shot dead," Teng Xingqiu, a former fighter against Vietnam in 1979 said.

They claim the Vietnamese was "cruel" against them, amid the war.

"Ordinary Vietnamese worked in secret with the army, old men and women would even shoot at us, it was really terrifying," Teng said.

Broken Vietnamese ship

Actually, the war begin when China invaded Vietnam in that year, to save genocidal Pol Pot from falling in Cambodia, who killed around 3 millions Cambodians during his rule.

The veterans are complaining now, that the Chinese government has decreased the supply to them.

They protest also to raise awareness about their miserables conditions.

The Chinese government has beating and arrested Teng with others veteran, for wanting living support from the government.

"The police told me they hoped I'd die in jail," said Teng.

Teng become a rubbish collecter, earning 1,000 yuan ($160) a month.

Vietnamese ship sunk

The Chinese president Xi Jinping, has cut off China's support to veteran, saying instead, China need the money for air and sea forces.

May be China try to save more money for the army, in order to launch more attacks in South East Sea, especially for Vietnam and Philippines.

China sees hundreds of demonstrations involving thousands of veterans every year, according to rights groups, with more than 10,000 reportedly doing so in 11 provinces late last month.

"Such demonstrations are one of the biggest threats to social stability in the country" Xue Gangling, dean of the China University of Politics and Law, told Chinese media outlet Caixin.

China takes Vietnam to UN!

China has claimed yesterday that the Vietnamese ships has rammed the Chinese ships around 1000 times!

Beijing said in a letter to Ban Ki Moon, Vietnam "forcefully" disrupting the rigging process, and "endangered our workers".

Its an irony, that China has rammed and broke hundred of Vietnamese boats for a weeks, and Vietnam never takes the case yet to UN!

Even the China claims of "ramming" by the Vietnamese ships, seems illogical.

Vietnamese send only fishery ships, in front of hundred Chinese armed navies, protecting the forced rigging oil.

“Vietnam sent frogmen and other underwater agents to the area, and dropped large numbers of obstacles, including fishing nets and floating objects, in the waters,” China letter to UN.

The stand off between China and Vietnam continue in the sea, with unbalanced conflict between the Vietnamese fishery ships, with the armed Chinese coast guards, that lead to dozens Vietnamese injured.

Opinion: Philippines, it a joke?

As China has trashed Philippines, and start building a military base in the Philippines water(disputed area with it) in one of the Spratly islands, Philippines response by far the weakest response to their provocation.

China tell Philippines "It’s none of your business" today as reported by the website of China foreign ministry.

Philippines non-action policy, was too passive.

"We won't respond like Vietnam" spokesperson of Philippines president, Benigno Aquino.

"We rule out the military action, and won't respond to China's provocation, instead, we will ensure to resolve the issue through diplomatic means" the spokesperson added.

Guess, what the Vietnam action that Philippines distanced it self from?

Sending "Civil Ships" to stop the Chinese military vessels from rigging in its water!

Even to this joke like action, China has send more than hundred naval vessels from the coast guard, to face these "Civil ships" which lead to dozen Vietnamese citizen injured, with broken boats.

And still Vietnam "Thinking" about taking not military action of course, but just to file legal case against China!

Philippines small ship in front of larger Chinese one

In the Vietnam case, it may be understood why Vietnam taking very low profile action, its due to the undemocratic one party Communist rule.

Which they scared if serious military conflict, or war could erupt with China, it might shaken their rule inside Vietnam, the most they care about.

But that for sure, not the Philippines's government case, which is elected democraticlly through multi-party system.

There is for certain, a lots of reason for their soft approach with China, one of them, unfortunately, is the Philippines have one of the weakest army amongst all of the ASEAN member countries! and China is the second strongest army in the world after the US!

Which is really unbalanced power between them. However, that doesn't justify their droop attitude toward China.

if that so, then what is the use of army? if not defending the country sovereignty?

The ironic thing even, is that the Philippines government, not only scared of the use of their military to defend their territory, they try also to dismiss the pictures released by one of the Philippines newspaper, to avoid "further angering" China!

The Filipino newspaper, inquirer, has released photos shows that China building military base in the Mabini reefs(Johnson south reefs), but the weird thing, is Philippines's government try not to "confirm" the photos!

“What has reached the President is [information] that some ships have been sighted [and they] are capable of transporting reclamation materials. But the President has not mentioned if indeed reclamation has started,” president's spokesperson said.

History has shown, that being soft and try passive attitude with China, will only lead more aggressive and arrogant action from it.

Take for example, Tibet case, were they have tried long time, a full peaceful manner to China, since the Chinese occupation to their land before more than 60 years.

And what that policy has lead to?

Tibet now ended in a real misery, has lost its sovereignty, culture, religious freedom etc..and the worst of all, it seriously threaten to get disappeared from the face of earth!

Countries need to take a look at the history, and must learn from it, it do reveal a lots of thing, and how the country's leaders think, you are dealing with, they are today, the successor of the former one.

All of the current Chinese leaders , was formerly a student in a Communist Maoist style school.

Which believe, the strongest is the winner!
The harsher, the better is!
The more reconciling, the loser is!

Tiananmen incident..does the Chinese care anymore? & UN question China

Protest in Tiananmen in 1989

As yesterday, the anniversary of the Tiananmen incident marked with total silence in China, the only sign of the incident is the heavy appearance of Police officers in Tiananmen square in Beijing.

However, there is an excessive intresting abroad, especially among the western journalists, almost all of their newspapers has mentioned it.

The weird thing is in China it self, almost not intrested in the incident, especially among the young people.

protests in 1989 in Beijing

“Pollution, the property bubble, a widening wealth gap, a slowing economy, These things are my concern.” an analysts bank surnamed ling told ibtimes news paper.

The current Chinese students or youths, tend either being ignorant about the incident, or even know about it, but indifference.

“I didn’t know anything about the Tiananmen Square incident when I was in China,” student named Xiong told Ibtimes news paper. “After I went to Canada and the U.S. [for school], I saw people talk about it and started to look into it and do research. … I watched documentaries online and chatted with my parents.” 

“The purpose of [censors] is to stabilize general public sentiments, establish people’s trust in the party and ultimately secure the party’s sovereignty, There were a lot of doubts in the party’s ability to lead the country’s development, [and] limiting freedom of speech helps stabilize society!.” she said.

Even large number of Chinese people believe the crackdown against the protests in 1989 was "necessary" to ensure stability!

A lots of them too, think that the economic growth(money), is much more important, then freedom or democracy.

"It’s not that I don’t care, it’s that for me, other things, like economic stability and reform, are a much bigger priority.” Ling said.

The author of famous book "people republic of amnesia, Louisia Lim, express her disappointment from how much ignorant about the incident in today China.

“The students I spoke to are the crème de la crème, the best-educated students in China,” Lim writes in her book. “Yet the vast majority of them looked at the photo with the slightest flicker of recognition. ‘Is it in Kosovo?’ one astronomy major asked. A student pursuing a Ph.D in marketing hazarded a guess, ‘Is it from South Korea?”.

So now, whats the point of focusing too much in Tiananmen massacre? if the Chinese themselves, is largely indifferent.

the important point, why the world doesn't pay much attention to the Tibetan revolution in 1989 march, just before two month from that one?

Tibetan monk lead protest in 1989 March

Actually, many people they don't know that the Tibetan revolution in that period, the Chinese was inspired from, that lead to Tiananmen massacre!

The revolution that ended to massacre in Tibet, with unknown numbers has died, lead the Spanish court before few months, to announce the six Chinese officials and two former president, Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin wanted for trials in Spain.

In no doubts, that the Tibetans is much more keen and intrested to mark their anniversary of the incident in Tibet, so it will be more wise and worthwhile to give it more attention.

In a separate development, the UN court has give China six month to respond until 15 December, to prove the so called "Nine dash line" that claim almost all of the South East Sea.

China has respond by the same, saying it won't participate with UN court.

If China didn't try to prove its claim, it might lead the UN court to rule with Philippines, and might complicate China relations with UN, as China is permanent member of UN security council.

Philippines's president, Benigno Aquino, said today 5 June, that China is building new structure, and has increased its presence in the disputed area.

"In the reports we received, we are again bothered that there seems to be developments in other areas within the disputed seas. Amongst them is the movement of ships. We’re not saying that they are exactly the same ships that were used in Mabini, but there seems to be similar ships at the very least," he said.

In a related development, Vietnam state TV, has released Video, shows Vietnamese fishing boat rammed by Chinese vessels, lead it to sink.

The tense situation between China and Vietnam has continued, as ramming, firing water cannon from Chinese ships to Vietnamese one.

Opinion: is it part of Chinese modern culture?

Zhang hitting the woman in Mcdonald

Horrific incident occurred before three days, in China, which women brutally attacked by group, in Shandong province, Zhaoyuan city, the far eastern China.

 The incident began, when group member of Christian religious cult, called "The all almighty God church", has practiced their activity of recruiting new members to their faith.

They approached a women staying in Mcdonald, to take her phone number, and she refused to do so, they start beating her, as reported by Chinese stat media.

The woman has died in front of around dozen crowd who just stay and watch!

the group lead by male surnamed Zhang, with his two doughters and teen son, with two other women, beating the girl with hammer, they arrested later by the police.

The most shocking thing about the incident, other than crime, was the indifference from the people, in the restaurant.

the too much indifference in China, is something noticeably very normal.

the shocking incident before around one year, when the car hit Chinese child, and he have been died after hours of pouring blood, without any help!

Car hitting Child, amid indifference from people

Even the issue has expressed in one short Chinese movie, which shows the brutal harsh reality of the Chinese society today, in a short film, called bus 44.

The movie is taken from true story, which woman driver assaulted by two men, who own only one small knife, in front of silence of dozens Chinese men passengers!

The end was tragic, when the woman decide to kill all passengers with the two criminals in the bus, it little bit different from the story in the movie.

The question, is this the culture in China today?

It does open a serious questioning, on how much the minorities like Tibetans and Uyghurs, in China still suffer too much amid the Chinese indifference to there miserables, if the Chinese themselves, treat each other personally, this way, even without the sensivities of politics and race issues!

It help give also thoughts, on how the Chinese leaders, think, behave and create policy toward other countries, especially the one that have borders dispute with them.
