□ According to the Xinhua News Agency, Manila, May 8 –
Philippine Navy commander Alexander Parma on the 8th, purchase a second aircraft from the United States, “Hamilton” level The patrol ship later this month will be delivered to the Philippines.

Morning News Huangyan Island for nearly a month of standoff, the “People’s Daily Overseas Edition on its front page on the 8th published a special commentator’s article” Facing the Philippines, we have sufficient means. ” The following is part of the contents of the article.
is the so-called “wood show in the forest, the wind will destroy”. Some people feel uncomfortable on the momentum of rapid development, overtly or covertly toss to contain us. What is more, such as the Philippines, that the Chinese do not want to cause trouble, the general trend, by the flagrant violation of the spirit of the “Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea in the South China Sea issue to stir up. First, to send warships harassment of fishing vessels in the normal operation of the Huangyan Island, a serious violation of our territorial sovereignty, fishermen and ship safety. After a lot of work through diplomatic channels, persists show strong, continuous advancing strengthen the deployment of the Huangyan Island waters, want the Huangyan Island attributable to submit to international arbitration jurisprudence, and diplomacy to seek intervention of the United States and ASEAN to intervene in the military more Philippine high-level person released is not responsible for speech, and events to expand the blame on the Chinese Ambassador in the Philippines and the Embassy of attitude can not be that arrogant.
on this issue, the Philippines, there are at least three things did not look: First, the sovereignty and territorial integrity is the core interest of China, China will not have the slightest concession on this issue. Harmonious and stable China to maintain the overall situation, China will do everything possible to exclude a variety of internal and external interference, and who wants to trick the Chinese play the trapped Waiyin passed contradiction is impossible to succeed. Master fighting force battle of wits. Inter-State competition, wrestling and even the “Running” is not false, but today, no one would do getting burned, shirtless, a lose-lose thing. America recently claimed to hold the position in the South China Sea issue, the careful selection of relatively “neutral”, ASEAN’s no one out of the “Platform” attitude at a glance.
quo and do something complementary, proactive strategy rather than a negative strategy. We will not toss themselves, but when the others to torment us, especially to toss us in the matter of territorial integrity, national dignity and social stability, we should make a difference, knock down this unhealthy trend Xiehuo.
should be said, to handle the dispute through direct negotiations and friendly consultations, is still the best path to solve the Huangyan Island, we have to make all possible efforts to the last minute. But the Philippines can not be China’s goodwill as a sign of weakness. Benevolence to also righteous do, intolerable need not longer forbear, I really at that time, we do not mind work together to create a “Huangyan Island mode” and the Philippine side. It should be said that the face of such adversaries, we have enough wisdom, there are sufficient means, without fighting to subdue the enemy, let the other closed hand.
settlement of disputes through peaceful means is our consistent position, but forget the war will be dangerous, is related to the core national interests, we do not fight do not fight back Masaoki. We want to make full preparations to deter military provocation, even if it is sure they force provocation.
the heart of the Philippines hope to beat it
□ wear Asahi
China and the Philippines in the Huangyan Island ship confrontation almost January, there is no end in sight. I believe that this is the intention to stir up one out of the Philippines, the United States is secretly involved in the political game, it seems very complicated, in fact, very simple to crack up, in accordance with the principle of Know thyself, know what they want to achieve “win”.
must first figure out the Philippines want to do to provoke this confrontation. In fact, the mind of the Philippines in the confrontations have been revealed. The Philippines is a small country in ASEAN, Aquino III but also the country side and the lackluster economy. See the eastward shift of the U.S. strategic, so they think the United States the opportunity to return to Southeast Asia, to take an economic and military aid from the United States.
Huangyan Island Event is the Philippines self-guided play and hope China “with” desperate measure “, it in fact do the Chinese prepare to take the normal action, in other words, the inner hope that the Chinese beat it a meal. In this way, can the United States to more things.
Second, figure out what the U.S. wants. The intention of the United States is also very simple, the United States to return to Southeast Asia, except in foreign alliances, it also requires new military bases. The whole of Southeast Asia, with the exception of Singapore military bases, there are two places it is most concerned about: one was once the Soviet military bases in Vietnam’s Cam Ranh Bay, one is it used to be stationed in Subic Hong Kong. The United States know that the most immediate hope for the Philippines.
Finally, you should consider what to do in this confrontation. The incident was a blatant invasion of the territorial waters, China accounts for all the favorable factors. China should and can be in this confrontation do two things: the confrontation one of the Philippines to participate in all non-armed vessels all seizure, forfeiture or a fine by diplomatic channels to solve; on military ships to be captured or sunk. The Philippines will afterwards: it was clean up the wreck from the United States going to even second-hand ships have much more advanced. China’s multibillion-dollar initiative to aid in the Philippines to thank, but the Chinese did it, the heart of the Philippines is grateful, even though it may be condemned verbally. Second, China’s Huangyan island entered the army, and began to carry out economic development.
