Chinese media says “Vietnam doomed to lose”

Damage to Vietnamese ship from ramming by Chinese ships

The following is translated from Chinese media:

Due to instability in the Middle East, China has determined to extract the oil and gas in the disputed waters in the South China Sea. China has the equipment and technology to do that. The problems are what other claimants to the disputed waters will do to stop China.

The attached photos show damage suffered by Vietnamese ships from ramming by Chinese ships. It seems this kind of ramming damage will be a daily occurrence whenever China’s oil exploration and extraction equipment emerges in disputed waters between China and Vietnam.

The Vietnamese way so far is to send a large number of ships and boats to disturb Chinese operations. China has responded with a larger fleet to ram Vietnamese ships. Due to China’s huge shipbuilding capacity and financial resources, it seems Vietnam is doomed to lose in such operations.

What is Vietnam’s next step if China begins to extract oil or gas there?

Appeal to or arbitration through the UN? China will utterly ignore the arbitration results nor will UN pass any resolution against China. China has great influence in quite a few UN members. Even the ASEAN did not accuse China for its oil rig move in its recent summit.

Ask the US and Japan for military aid?

Will they fight a war for Vietnam and thus begin a world war? Not very likely, but the danger is there.

About chankaiyee2

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

  1. Let the damn Chinamen extract gas and oil. It’s the easiest way to blow them up and get rid of them. 😉

  2. After demonstrating extreme patience for Chinese illegal drilling operation, the world should understand if at certain point, Vietnam must exercise her self-determination and sink this oil rig inside their EEZ.

    • You are criminal to suggest Vietnam should sink the oil rig. In fact you are asking the Vietnamese to commit suicide and if anything happen to them, including forcing China to attack the Spratlys, you will be blamed for instigating war. Civilize people knows when to fold, and if you don’t hold a good card, you surrender!

      Editor’s Note: In response to the many emails about this poster, we do suspect he’s a paid Chinese internet commentator. However, we believe that all people should be allowed to voice their opinions, not just the ones that agree with our agenda. Therefore, at this stage we will not ban him, but will continue to censor his profanity and racial vilification.
