    With the intentions of US getting clear it must be causing jitters in China's PLA and CPC. Its better for China to settle all border and maritime issues with its neighbors with give and take policy otherwise it will get mired in geo-politic strategy with US and its neighbors. China is not yet that strong to take on so many enemies at a time. They seem to forget the lessons of Sun Tzu.
