    The US is the global police, hadn't you heard?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The US (not under Obama) would not allow such unchecked aggression. I care because it sets a bad precedence (im aware many dont care about the principle) and its negative effects on our allies.

    Do you think a world without a US presence would be better or worse?

    The only thing worse than a world dominated by the US is a world not dominated by the US.

    This sort of run-in in the South China Sea is not new and has happened before. It will continue to happen, probably more frequently, but doesn't need to lead to a confrontation.

    I agree. But even knowing this truth they left does not care.

    Don't mess with China and don't test their patience.

    We have seen it coming s have our allies in the region. We should have helped them do exactly what China is doing. We haven't so far and we are slowly losing credibility as an ally. This will continue as we do not lead.

    Above the South China Sea (CNN)The Chinese navy issued warnings eight times as a U.S. surveillance plane on Wednesday swooped over islands that Beijing is using to extend its zone of influence. The series of man-made islands and the massive Chinese military build-up on them have alarmed the Pentagon, which is carrying out the surveillance flights in order to make clear the U.S. does not recognize China's territorial claims. The militarized islands have also alarmed America's regional allies.

    A CNN team was given exclusive access to join in the surveillance flights over the contested waters, which the Pentagon allowed for the first time in order to raise awareness about the challenge posed by the islands and the growing U.S. response. CNN was aboard the P8-A Poseidon, America's most advanced surveillance and submarine-hunting aircraft, and quickly learned that the Chinese are themselves displeased by the U.S. pushback.

    "This is the Chinese navy ... This is the Chinese navy ... Please go away ... to avoid misunderstanding," a voice in English crackled through the radio of the aircraft in which CNN was present.

    The spratly islands are claimed by at least 5 nations, China is clearly committed exerting its influence in the region. IIRC there are large oil deposits nearby.

    I also think they know Obama is a weak POTUS, and that this is the time to establish a presence in the region.

    You have to play a different ball game when you are dealing with China and Russia. Hawkish behaviour won't work. They will resist all the more. Compromise with them or go to war.
