    They been watching you guys invading. A territorial dispute in the South China Sea is nothing compared to invading. They are making a claim and this has nothing to do with US. Let them sort it out without US interference.

    Our relationship with those two countries is entirely different. Most importantly, because our economic partnership with China is far more significant and more important. China is our second largest trading partner after Canada. We have more trade with them than we do with the entire EU combined. That close economic relationship means we don't really have an antagonistic relationship with China the way we do with Russia. We aren't hostile with Russia, but we clearly don't see eye to eye. So the way we should deal with China is by simply negotiating with them in good faith and in a spirit of friendship. The way we have to deal with Russia is far more complicated.

    You took the wrong course with China and Russia. It was hostile attitude and the administration realised it. That's the reason why Obama sent John Kerry to these two countries lately.
