maybe

But be sure such kind of nationalism must have limits. If not, the whole nation will be devastated.

Maybe...

Okay, the word "regret" is ambiguous in some cases. When China expressed "regret" that their submarine has intruded "Japanese waters," China may have meant any of the following:

1) We regret intruding your waters
2) We regret that you're all upset over such small matter
3) We regret that we made such a mistake but we don't really care about what you think

It really depends on how the other side interprets the regret. The Japanese have concluded that China has actually apologized.

The Japanese have repeatedly threatened to cut off financial aid to China and China needs the aid and the low-interest loans.
