THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA – A TYRANT :
The term ‘tyrant’ describes any person who exercises authority in an oppressive manner, a cruel master, despot, absolute ruler who is unwilling for arbitration. Red China governs as a tyrant. Apart from being harsh, cruel, oppressive, and unjust, the tyrannical rule imposed by Red China over illegally occupied Tibet is characterized by Red China’s use of any kind of pretext to justify its tyranny. When the oppressor intends to be unjust, no argument will succeed. A tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny and it is useless for the victim to try by reasoning to get justice. Red China to justify its military grip over Tibet claims that She liberated Tibet and emancipated Tibetan people from feudal Lords. The stories popularly known as Aesop’s Fables include a story titled ‘THE WOLF AND THE LAMB’ in which, a Lamb finds no choice other than that of losing his life for the Wolf, a tyrant is unwilling to accept any reasoning with which Lamb pleaded to save his life.
THE WOLF AND THE LAMB :
Once upon a time, a Wolf was lapping at a stream, when looking up, the Wolf saw a Lamb just beginning to drink a little lower down the stream.
“There’s my supper”, thought the Wolf, “If only I can find some excuse to seize it.” Then he called out to the Lamb, “How dare you muddle the water from which I am drinking?”
“Nay, Master, nay,” said Lambikin, “If the water be muddy up there, I cannot be the cause of it, for it runs down from you to me.”
“Well then,” said the Wolf, “Why did you call me bad names this time last year?”
“That cannot be,” said the Lamb, “I am only six months old.”
“I don’t care,” snarled the Wolf, “If it was not you it was your father,” and with that he rushed upon the poor little Lamb, seized him and ate him up saying, “Well I won’t remain supperless even though you refute every one of my imputations.”
But before he died, Lamb gasped out, “Any excuse will serve a tyrant.”
In my view, the United States and its allies in Asia cannot win their argument about territorial boundaries in South China Sea. Red China is a tyrant who will use any excuse to justify her actions to expand her maritime boundaries. To address the problem of Red China’s tyranny, the global community of nations must begin with ‘The Great Problem of Tibet’ and evict the illegal occupier of Tibet.

U.S. HOPES CHINESE ISLAND-BUILDING WILL SPUR ASIAN RESPONSE
By David Alexander
By releasing video of Beijing’s island reclamation work and considering more assertive maritime actions, the United
States is signaling a tougher stance over the South China Sea and trying to spur Asian partners to more action.
The release last week of the surveillance plane footage – showing dredgers and other ships busily turning remote outcrops into islands with runways and harbors – helps ensure the issue will dominate an Asian security forum starting on Friday attended by U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter as well as senior Chinese military officials.
As it pushes ahead with a military “pivot” to Asia partly aimed at countering China, Washington wants Southeast
Asian nations to take a more united stance against China’s rapid acceleration this year of construction on disputed reefs.
The meeting, the annual Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, will be overshadowed by the tensions in the South China
Sea, where Beijing has added 1,500 acres to five outposts in the resource-rich Spratly islands since the start of this year.
“These countries need to own it (the issue),” one U.S. defense official said on condition of anonymity, adding that
it was counterproductive for the United States to take the lead in challenging China over the issue.

More unified action by the partners, including the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), needed
to happen soon because “if you wait four years, it’s done,” the official said.
While some ASEAN members, including U.S. ally the Philippines and fellow claimant Vietnam, have been vocal critics of
Chinese maritime actions, the group as a whole has been divided on the issue and reluctant to intervene.
But in a sign of growing alarm, the group’s leaders last month jointly expressed concern that reclamation activity
had eroded trust and could undermine peace in the region.
Experts dismiss the idea of ASEAN-level joint action any time soon in the South China Sea. “It’s absolute fantasy,” said
Ian Storey of Singapore’s Institute on South East Asian Studies.
But stepped-up coordination between some states is possible. Japan’s military is considering joining the United States in
maritime air patrols over the sea. Japan and the Philippines are expected to start talks next week on a framework for the transfer of defense equipment and technology and to discuss a possible pact on the status of Japanese military
personnel visiting the Philippines.
Carter, speaking in Honolulu en route to Singapore, repeated Washington’s demand that the island-building stop, saying
China was violating the principles of the region’s “security architecture” and the consensus for “non-coercive approaches.”
China claims 90 percent of the South China Sea, which is believed to be rich in oil and gas, with overlapping claims
from Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan.
SHOWING CHINA SOME “RESOLVE”
As part of Washington’s drive to energize its allies, a U.S. Navy P-8 reconnaissance plane allowed CNN and Navy
camera crews to film Chinese land reclamation activity in the Spratly islands last week and release the footage.
“No one wants to wake up one morning and discover that China has built numerous outposts and, even worse, equipped them
with military systems,” Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Russel said.
Ernest Bower, a Southeast Asia expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank in Washington,
said the U.S. goal was to convince China to buy into the international system for dispute resolution rather than impose its sweeping territorial claims on the region.
But in the near term, he added: “I think the Americans are going to have to show China some resolve.”
U.S. officials have said Navy ships may be sent within 12 miles (19 kms) of the Chinese-built islands to show that
Washington does not recognize Beijing’s insistence that it has territorial
Washington is also pressing ahead with its rebalancing towards Asia, four years after President Barack Obama announced
the strategic shift, even as some countries say it is slow to take shape.
The United States has updated its security agreements with treaty allies Japan and the Philippines and is
bolstering missile defenses in Japan with an eye on North Korea.
U.S. Marines are training in Australia on a rotational basis, littoral combat ships are operating out of Singapore and
new P-8 reconnaissance planes stationed in Japan have flown missions across the region.
Overall, defense officials said, the Navy will increase its footprint by 18 percent between 2014 and 2020. The aim is
to have 60 percent of Navy ships oriented toward the Pacific by 2020, compared to 57 percent currently.
Military officials in the Philippines say the U.S. shift has been noticeable, including military exercises, training
and ship and aircraft visits. The emphasis has shifted from anti-terrorism to maritime security, one official said.
China has not shown any sign of being deterred. On Tuesday it held a groundbreaking ceremony for two lighthouses in
the South China Sea, vowed to increase its “open seas protection,” and criticized neighbors who take “provocative actions” on its reefs and islands.
