#1 OTOH WORLD MILITARY FORUM > EXPERTS:SOUTH KOREA SHOULD PROVE TO CHINA THAT IT IS NOT A PROXY FOR THE US + JAPAN IN THE ISOLATION OR CONTAINMENT OF CHINA IN EAST ASIA.

* Also from SAME > PHILIPPINE FM [Albert del Rosaro] FORMALLY RECOGNIZES CHINA'S EFFECTIVE OR "ACTUAL CONTROL" OF HUANGYAN ISLAND [PHIL = Panatag Shoal]. PHILIPPINE GOVT., COMMERCIAL SHIPS HAVE NOT ENTERED DISPUTED AREA, PHILIPPINES TO SEEK POLITICAL, LEGAL, + DIPLOMATIC OPTIONS IFF CHINA REFUSES TO WITHDRAW.

* TOPIX > [ABS-CBN News] BAJO DE MASINLOC CLAIM CRUCIAL TO CHINA' CLAIM OF ENTIRE SOUTH CHINA SEA.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > UN TO CONSIDER VALIDITY OF CHINA'S CLAIM OVER DISPUTED ISLANDS [East China Sea = China-claimed "Diaoyu Dao + afiliated islands"].

ARTIC > CHINA = informed the UN Panel that the "OKINAWA TROUGH IS THE NATURAL TERMINATION OF THE 'CONTINENTAL SHELF' IN THE EAST CHINA SEA".

RELATED SAME, TOPIX, WORLD NEWS > [Various = old] CHINA SAYS [Underwater] GEOLOGY BACKS CLAIM TO DISPUTED EAST CHINA SEA ISLANDS, + also History.

CHINA = Geology + Histoire' = ECS + Okinawa Islands, Surface + Sea Floor, is ALL THEIRS.

* SAME > NORTH KOREA THREATENS PHYSICAL COUNTER-MEASURES AGZ SOUTH KOREA.

Pragmatically, the US is in SOKOR, OKINAWA, + SUBIC BAY - where the US is NOT is NORTHERN PHILIPPINES, I.E. NORTH OF SUBIC BAY + CLARK + MANILA BAY WHICH FLANKS CHINA'S ULTIMATE TARGET TAIWAN. AFAIK the Philippine Armed Forces are focused mainly in the SCS vee China, + Mindanao vee Moros, etal.

#2 Xi "probably wanted to send North Korea a warning amid signs of another provocation by the North," said a diplomatic source in Beijing

Methinks China is more concerned with potential specweps in SKOR.

#3 China's president-in-waiting Xi Jinping

Oh, *that* Xi. When I saw the headline, I was thinking the Company Formerly Known As Blackwater.

#4 This is China's way of trying to prevent the ROK's from acquiring nukes. China doesn't need multi-national talks to stop NK's nuclear program - all it has to do is cut off its aid to NK.

#5 DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > CHINESE MEDIA [Global Times] THREATENS NORTH KOREA AID CUT OVER ATOMIC TEST.

Even one presumes that China does cut off aid, in the current climate vee Japan it only means China + PLA get to take over the DPRK that much faster - brings the PLA Airborne + LR Strike Air [PLAAF] much closer to Japan + espec TAIWAN.

Lest we fergit, to deter or prevent China takeover, THE DPRK + NorKoms = JONG-UN CANNOT "NOT NUCLEARIZE".
