Don't worry it's based on a 737-800 frame. It will crash all on it's own without any outside help. I'm sure it's an old one too that Boeing slapped a fresh coat of paint on and made to look new. I wouldn't put it past them what so ever.

  


Was it "Made in China"?

Russia should support Japan, not China.

If the US does not allow China new ADIZ why didn't they object and allowed Japan's JADIZ expand to the Diaoyu Islands back in 2011?

  


Yo u're totally clueless, let me give you a history lesson. Uninhabited before 1895, when Japan formally annexed them (not a peep from China). Japan lost the islands to US in '45, only to have them retransferred '72. Also, that same year the UN ID'ed large gas deposits, and THEN the PRC finally makes their claim. The Chinese didn't care about the islands until they found out there were resources.

...Usa's Fake economy of giving d world bombs & bullets then calling it "democracy/ development", runs on borrowed money, from china! (wtf!) ...

  


The #1 creditor of the US is Japan. China has loaned a lot of money to many countries, but Japan has loaned more to the US. You are apparently very uninformed. Also, the Senkakus are historically belonging to Japan and china agreed to this in 1945. Now, china wants to say they own Senkakus, Okinawa, and all of the South China Sea, but really they want to start a war with a few peaceful countries.

This is a perfect example of biting d hand that feeds ya! Usa's Fake economy of giving d world bombs & bullets then calling it "democracy/ development", runs on borrowed money, from china! (wtf!) Meddling in these two nations issues even though china can historically prove owner ship is not our concern! But Messing with a nations that has d capacity 2 to inflict damage is a whole new level of PSYCHOTIC, D USA is morphing into! Sometimes getting d psychotic sick guy medical help works, but sometimes just punching them in d gut brings Em right back 2 reality! They Not so sick after all, just being predatory! HA!

Stop hyping up the US threat to China.

 

Proud Atheist 03.12.2013 09:14

Warmongers. They have more than 500 military bases around the world to spread destruction and supply the top administrators of mass murders with more resources to do more killings. China is the biggest hope now for the Anti-Evil world.

Wrong. It is you who don't understand this. You are ignorant of modern Asian pacific politics especially in the history of Asia's territorial oceanic disputes. If the US does not allow China new ADIZ why didn't they object and allowed Japan's JADIZ expand to the Diaoyu Islands back in 2011? China and Taiwan does not acknowledge Japan's administrative control over the Islands nor will they ever will. Your deluded claims are beyond true and are hypocritical with double standards.

Interesting how we were just doing disaster relief exercises with the Chinese military in the Hawaiian islands last month and now this?

Clarify the following please.. since when USA has understood that any country could not act unilaterally? Who gave the rights to adminster disputed islands to japan? USA? Is that not a unilateral dicision and not of UN?

  


Perhaps you don't seem to understand the situation. The US does not encourage Japanese claims to the island. It does not endorse them. The US did not support Japan when they bought the islands either. But the US will not allow China to feel like it can expand it's targeting zone simply because it feels entitled to do so.

Look at the kids play. Its kindergarten time! These kids have big and powerful toys though, so I hope the adults can step it up and figure out whats going on before something silly happens.

J ust imagine the reaction from Washington, if Chinese aircraft violated American airspace over Guam, Okinawa or Hawaii.

  


The US has over 1,000 military bases around the world. On the home front, zionist NWO bankers, corrupt ZOG politicians and multinationals continue to suck the country dry. This February, beloved America will run into the Rothschild banking cartel bankruptcy wall. Either Niccolò Machiavelli theories are no longer relevant or something's going to give.

"Expanding an ADIZ is deliberately provocative and betrays China's claim to want peace in the region."
Ut ter bullcrap. Stop rehasing one liners from propaganda op-eds. Japan's ADIZ has claimed the entire island chain for more than 40 years. The US govt hypcorcitically allowed it and supported their unilitaral moves since WW2. In 2011 the JADIZ (Japan's Air defence Indentification Zone) grew and and consumed the Diayo/Senkaku Isands without China's and Taiwan's authourity. Japan is still an imperialist as ever and have disputes with China, South Korea, Taiwan and Russia with their own ADIZ for decades.

 

Commander 03.12.2013 00:49

The deployment of these P-8A US Naval aircraft is just yet another example of American arrogance and aggression. China has every right to defend its own airspace.

J ust imagine the reaction from Washington, if Chinese aircraft violated American airspace over Guam, Okinawa or Hawaii.

The US maintains a defense treaty with Japan. Japan administers the islands. China expands it's targeting zone to include the islands. US reassures Japan that it will not let China unilaterally act ...

You don't mean to say you actually think that US politicians currently running things (and in the past] are emotionally mature?

  


Biologically speaking, yes, they are mature adult humans. Politically, it makes perfect sense. The US maintains a defense treaty with Japan. Japan administers the islands. China expands it's targeting zone to include the islands. US reassures Japan that it will not let China unilaterally act against their claims. Regardless of your opinion on the islands, the logic is rather clear.

Id like a new pair of shoes for Christmas, if we go to war how do i do that ??

Konrad2 02.12.2013 22:45

To all US residents: This is the maturity level of the people running your country! (Very low)

  


Please explain. China is dealing with a beast of it's own creation. They have fostered ultra-nationalism for the past 20 years, and now the Communist party is in a position where it needs to act, not for it's own benefit, but to appease the masses who have been fed stories (many true, not all) of Japan's horrific war crimes for years. Expanding an ADIZ is deliberately provocative and betrays China's claim to want peace in the region.
