    Earlier, it was Vietnam and Philippines that were getting browned off with the Chinese aggression in the SCS.

    It now appears that the ASEAN too is getting fed up with China.

    With the US spearheading the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade deal in the Asia-Pacific region involving the US, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and eight other countries.

    The deal's geopolitical implications is that it would help the United States become more integrated into the economy of the Asia-Pacific region and force China, whose economic clout has grown rapidly, to play by clearly defined, US-backed rules of international commerce.

    Negotiations between the US and 11 other nations are nearing conclusion.

    This TPP will focus on China's unrealistic value of the Yuan and its unfair trade practices.

    The US is bent on emasculating China and more so, since the Chinese economy is slowing down.

    With the ASEAN raising the decibel level, China apparently is getting isolated by the day.

    It is the usual style that China has employed to obfuscate and deflect the issue - that is it not a problem between China and ASEAN.

    Of course it concerns the ASEAN. It is body of nations that are small and have common interests.

    And this is hilarious:
    Insinuations?

    They are facts and can be checked on the ground.

    Selfish interest?

    Pot calling the kettle black? What China is doing in the South China Sea is altruistic interest? What a gas!
