a) China did not invade waters that were clearly defined as belonging to any other South Asian country. Thus your claim is factually incorrect. The territory in question is contested by several Asian countries thus its far from established whose landmass it should be considered to belong to.
b) What business has the fuxxing US with a deal between CNOOC bidding for Nexen, a purely Canadian company? A US senator writing a letter urging a blocking of the deal? You gotta be kidding me. Who is a little too territorial here? China or the US?
@ point A, they don't have to invade all they have to do is have their patrol boats (yes they have be biggest navy in the area) running around the area mopping up any foreign fishermen from the neighboring country and holding them hostage. It's basically stifle the fishing industry of neighboring countries. Did you have a chance to see some of their political maps? They're hungry for resources so I'm not surprise of their expansionist policies. In the future, Europe is broke, US also broke, so they will have much less opposition and will stake their own claims. But, of course, another Chinese revolution like the one in 1911 could change the entire dynamic.
Western companies only know of profit and the Chinese would gladly exchange money for something much better: Influence and control.
