Reuters says in its report today, “G7 agrees need strong message on South China Sea; China says don’t ‘hype’”, “Group of Seven (G7) leaders agreed on Thursday on the need to send a strong message on maritime claims in the western Pacific, where an increasingly assertive China is locked in territorial disputes with Japan and several Southeast Asian nations.”

It quotes Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying as retorting by saying that the South China Sea issue had “nothing to do” with the G7 or any of its members and “China is resolutely opposed to individual countries hyping up the South China Sea for personal gain.”

    G7 is a cabal that don’t represent the majority world economies so whatever statement ain’t worth sht. It is basically a club with a political agenda more than addressing global interest. G7 should be disbanded. It is totally irrelevant in the modern world order.

    It’s really ironic that the inheritors of the Eight Nation Alliance now can only defy China with ineffective ‘strong message’. Most of them are now hooked on China’s economic assistance like opium addicts. China only needs to issue blunt warning to them and all they do is scurrying like Group of Seven rats to save their Chinese assistance. In this case, it is true that words are stronger than the most powerful weapons. Only it was not their words that were strong. It was China’s.

    The G7 countries are the bastion of the “Eight Nation Alliance” coalition that invaded China in the 19th century. These same nations were responsible for undermining Chinese soveriegnty over 100 years ago and now they try to do the same.China must ignore their demands and declare a ADIZ over SCS and build more islands and claim more islands. G7 are only dare to to say anything because Chna has not been aggressive enough.

    “G7 need to send strong message on SCS claims” what has any of this got to do with them? More to the point it is China who needs to send string message to G7 to get stuffed or send strong message to G7 pull investments, tourism and suspend shipments of rare eath. G7 countries are being bank rolled by China, without Chinese investment they are all in dire straites. I
