The British advising they are sailing through the South China sea as is their right, should surprise nobody. Why this is even news worthy is to simply ramp up bad feelings in the South China Sea.

The real question is why the British are making such a big deal out of sailing the same

Just as South Korea and Japan are US colonies.
Maybe China should open some military bases in the Caribbean.

It is time that Britain shows it has backbone. The Chinese need to learn that they can no longer und ...

I see you have no interest in supporting the victims of western aggression and genocide distributed worldwide over the past 500 years.
China is just defending its own backyard.
