Occupying the   S p r a t l y  islands more than 500 km away from Chinese mainland for exploiting its oil- and gas reserves, defying claims of sovereignty over the islands by other close by nations, is just

  c o l o n i a l i s m .



You mean as bad as Britain, occupying overseas territories thousands of miles away?


British Virgin Islands
Cayman Islands
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
Falkland Islands
and many more

or France:

French Polynesia
Martinique
French Guiana
Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Réunion

and several others.


All these occupied territories are not even on European soil or in European seas.

Any comment?

So China occupying islands that were uninhabited and which it fished from for over 1000 years is colonialism. Than what does slaughtering millions of people in the New World so you can take their land count as? I believe that term is GENOCIDE.

Oh... the folks in Vietnam have a difference of option about the whole islands issue - especially the ones that the PLAN took over from South Vietnam back in the mid 1970's after the fall of Saigon.

Figure PJ will have a few words on that subject.

If Chinese bothered to travel to Africa for tourism they might wonder why Africans don't like Chinese, but of course few people in developing countries want to go to Africa so most will never know.
