China’s Reaction: America Is A “Disgusting Thief Spying Over His Neighbor’s Fence”

China’s Reaction: America Is A "Disgusting Thief Spying Over His Neighbor’s Fence"

Only hours ago the US government announced that a Chinese fighter jet had intercepted an American military patrol plane over international waters east of China’s Hainan Island.

A Pentagon spokesman called China’s actions “unsafe and unprofessional”, and blasted such unprovoked aggression.

There was no mention as to why a US surveillance plane was just off the Chinese coast to begin with. They’re just playing the victim… and rather loudly at that.

Needless to say, the Chinese government has a slightly different story. I asked one of our Sovereign Man team members in mainland China to translate the following article from Sina News.

The first part of the article praises the pilot’s skill and boldness, as well as the efficiency and superiority of Chinese aviation technology.

The Jian-11B fighter, in fact, is 100% Chinese. There is no foreign engine or major component.

As for the rest of the article– I present it below with only one comment– it should be obvious to anyone paying attention that the US is no longer the world’s dominant superpower. It’s certainly obvious to the Chinese.

From Sina News

Stop thief: China rejects the U.S. government calling our aircraft “dangerously close”

Sure enough, it is the American government who stamps its foot first after a similar event.

First the famous anti-China military scholar Bill Gertz played his “danger close” speech for the Washington Free Beacon.

And then the Pentagon also followed and said that it was a “dangerous intercept”. The White House called it “deeply worrying provocation”.

Adm. John Kirby, the Defense Department spokesman, said Washington protested to the Chinese military through diplomatic channels, and called the maneuvers “unsafe and unprofessional.”

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said it was “obviously a deeply concerning provocation and we have communicated directly to the Chinese government our objection to this type of action.”

Such remarks are laughable. As we all know, the United States is the world’s largest hegemonic force and biggest rogue country.

Their various reconnaissance aircraft have been wandering around foreign airspace for decades and watching the military secrets of other countries like a disgusting thief spying over his neighbor’s fence.

However, when the neighbor comes back with a big stick, the thief will turn tail and run away, blaming the neighbor.

When you show people weakness, they will bully you. When you show people strength, they will respect you.

We [the newspaper] believe the Chinese Air Force and Naval aviation should maintain a high level of vigilence and morale in southeast coastal region to prevent the further US action.

America has lost face and does not want to show the world they are sick. They have been lording over other countries for so long, and they will never let it go after they eat this loss.

Whatever. Bet the Chinese can produce more of these for the price of ONE American plane. And it will WORK.  And they can PAY for it. With U.S. Treasurys.

They call the pilot's actions "unprofessional?"  By all accounts, that inversion and roll was executed VERY professionally.

"And it will WORK."

I'm guessing you don't buy too much stuff made in China? If that fighter was made by the same people who produced my toaster, it has a 40% of electrocuting you, a 50% chance of bursting into flames, and 10% chance of producing toast.

Russia builds great fighter jets, China rips them off and probably cuts corners like they do with everything else.

What makes this concept even more concerning is, "Obedience to WHOM?" Who had "decided" we must always "be Obedient" - along the lines of "Obedient little SLAVES"??

For the answer to the implied question, just see which section of the Community has indulged in the biggest scam of the century, and has received "but a slap on the wrist".

Which section of Society seems forever willing to accept ex-Politicians with open arms (and very generoous renumeration packages), whilst the "rest of us" are told "there's no money" for critical infrastructure repairs, let alone new builds?

They would have been Waco'ed. You can't outviolence the government - that's all that needs to be realized.

A protest that works is invisible, it does not exist, and therefore cannot be subverted, advertised, suppressed.

If they wanted to actually ACHIEVE something, all they had to do was turn off their TVs, computers, phones, stop using dollars, and stay indoors just for 2 days. 2 days. Imagine the volume of advertising and propaganda that wouldn't have been poured down their brains - all prepaid. That would be a gevalt of the highest order - because there is nothing to apply violence to.

The fact that this did not happen means that Ferguson "protests" have fat quotes around them.

I wouldn't go so far as to say they've won.

Along with our jobs being exported to has been a butt load of pollution.  In that regard the Chinese are totally screwed.

We've 'won' by 'enjoying' ultra cheap crap from China for many years, but they are paying the ultimate price - as the real cost to manufacture so much, so cheaply has to been to destroy their environment.  they've destroyed their health and environment so WE could buy cheap toasters at Wal-Mart.  Plus those dumb shits financed the whole thing

I guess the only problem with that is once those 1B+ chinese realize how they've screwed, they're gonna be pissed....and now appears they have fighter jets.  I'm hoping the fast food they are now starting to be accustomed to will make them all fat and apathetic as it has done to vast majority of americans.

That's the picture from our perspective, but what is the picture from China's? They have worked to keep their people poor in order to keep down the cost of exports, but now they are suddenly going to develop a healthy consumer economy? If this were to happen it would only last a few minutes since the Chinese are even more opportunistic that the West is, and they would quickly off shore to make a buck the same as we did.

DFC tommie:

"They have worked to keep their people poor..."

Au contraire mon ami, and perhaps this will add to the conversation.

PRC is in an entirely and inherently deflationary economy.  Folks around these-here parts talk about the US "exporting inflation", and I guess that the Fed mofoz are in fact doing that.

But PRC has another problem, divided among several parts: a) population growth requires a huge number of productive jobs (in fact, and not as BLS might invent), b) for a young individual, there is tremendous pressure from those on the the countryside to get cityside, and c) Mao'z "solution" of killing off ~60MM individuals to "solve" his Malthus problem, well, that wouldn't work in today's twittering social communication.

" order to keep down the cost of exports,..."

again, au contraire, they (I lump PRC policy makers into a huge hive) have no choice, 'tother way around.  They have to keep down the cost of exports in order to keep their poor people alive.

Go check out Home Depot, Lowes, Harbor Freight and see the compelling and actual results.

and yes, the Chinese business folkz are all over especially Africa and the Carribe for "resources". 

I am unfamiliar with  your term "Make a Healthy Consumer Economy."

Is it  possible, in your view, to cause this to happen?

Great post and a greenie  on ya, with the above comments in play.

There is a natural progression that should happen as an economy matures. They move from exports and cheap labor to also becoming consumers themselves because they are now more economically prosperous. China wanting to hold on to their export business has thwarted that progression. This however has also kept them chained to the U.S. and any other nation they export to, since they don't have a healthy consumer base themselves. That will not be changed overnight.

Our 30-yr old Dualit toaster still works amazingly well, guess the Brits knew how to build something right.  More importantly, all of the repair parts are still available in case anything does eventually fail.  Not sure if the current breed of Dualits sold at Williams & Sonoma are still made in England though.

Blame the middleman America (dual citizen) importer.   The Russian jets are better than the Chinese while the USA stuff is getting worse by the day.  The F-35 is junk. The F-22 is not much better.

A war game simulation was done a few years ago

It was supposedly a Taiwanese Straits war game simulation with F-35s,22s, and F-18 versusSU-27s and SU-35s.  The American jets were wiped out.

A 1950s era Mig 21 can destroy a F-35.

You're confusing what they manufacture for fat-ass brain-dead Walmart shoppers — incapable of calculating the ten-year cost of a toaster designed to last for a few months even if their lives depended on it — with what the Chinese build for themselves, particularly their military forces.

Maybe you're right, I'm not an expert on Chinese military equipment by any means, but going off of what I've seen, heard, and personally experienced, the Chinese don't have a great track record with quailty control. The philosophy seems to be build alot of so-so things, instead of  fewer high quaility things. Could be completely wrong in this particular case, but you still wouldn't catch me in the cockpit.

I bought the toaster at Target by the way! I'm upper lower class thank you very much...

Along those lines, I could understand the building of junk to satisfy what we desire.  But there are still those who buy quality and for whatever reason the Chinese don't seem to ever have anything in the quality space.  Tools, kitchen equipment, lawn equipment, drywall, nothing.  I'm fairly skeptical of these claims China can build quality if they want to.

Hobo: I would have agreed with you 10 years ago but I do business with a couple of guys who do alot of busines with China manufacturing.  They say the Chinese can make great stuff and do; but America/Canada buyers  just want low,low  price and that means low/labour  input material so crappy product.

They do say if you aren't a big company and you sign on for say a three year deal; the first six months the supply is fine but by year 2 the quality is fucked.  They were using bolts for saws:  the last two months of the contract they had to throw out the cheap bolts. Alot of unscrupulous actors in China,  no rules of law.

I would bet, however, 747's  to donuts that they won't rip off the Chinese government with a cheap fighter. 

Sometime in the 90's , under Clinton, he changed a rule that allowed foreign, ie Chinese parts for military procurement.  I don;t remember the specifics, it seems like a dumbkoff move.  Being dependent on your potential enmey for militray parts is moronic.

Ya I'm not by any means debating their ability to build quality, It just seems when given the option between quality and quantity they choose the latter (and why not if thats what the market wants). I think the problem is when everyone sees that as the profitable model, then they start doing it for everything.

Regardless of what they do, I wish we still built stuff and didn't have to depend on them. It would be nice to buy things other than firearms that were made here.

Since the $18/hr factory job with benefits went to china, not only did the typical US worker ability to save money go away so did the discretionary income.  Thus many look for the cheapest they can find for things they may believe they need.  I went without cable for 2-3 years about 5 years ago but I had a job where I was rarely home... if someone works 30 to 40 hrs max a week ... how are they to keep themselves occupied... its not like most can afford to set up a norm abrams woodworking shop or work on fxing up an old car (with little to no extra money) while living in an apartment.   I just don't know anybody who would be willing to sit around in their apt and read books from libraries till they go to their subsistence wage job the next day for any extended period of time.

I expect it to work properly for 5 years.

This is what the Chinese merchants tell you:

'"For that price, what did you expect?!!" as though their cheapout ways are your fault.

The stuff in China is equally dire - they quality fade everyone, domestic and foreign, and they have no morals, ethics or scruples and will attack you if/when you figure out their supply chain fade and cost cutting and drop in QC.

There a millions of examples, here is one:

In China electronic vehicles, bicycles, small farm tractor truck three wheelers, scooters, etc, are shipped to the dealers dis-assembled and must be assembled by the dealer in town before they can be sold.

What the dealer will do is swap out the high quality 18/8 or coated fasteners with the cheapest and lowest grade gutter zinc-recycled-composite that they can find, and sell the high quality hardware to someone else.

18 months later when you look at an ebike or motorcycle, you can see which dealers grifted the hardware, as things rust at an extremely accelerated pace that is easily seen. 

If you were to buy one of these bikes in the USA, the first thing you should do is rebuild it from the ground up and replace all of the fasteners with 18/8 or brass if decorative.

Large consumer appliances in China are not designed to last longer than 36 months, and the locals repeat this mantra that such and such will need to be replaced in 3 years. Since they do not know better because no one had a washing machine before 2003, they do not know that they should not last 3-6 years and then self-destruct.

Small appliances won't last a year.

Mobile phones are supposed to be replaced every year, screens crack instantly, day one.

Outdoor faucets lasts 6 months in the rain. They just toss it and replace it with an equally low grade replacement.

Broken Window Fallacy as economic policy.

Buildings last 20 years but begin to visibly decay within 3 months - 90 days. Yes, 90 days.

Don't matter - Russia make servicable fighter jets - but when they have gone up agains even or aging F14, F15, F16 they have not fared so well. We don't even need to bring the big dogs out of the hanger - just put an F18 Super Hornet up there instead of a boat survelience plane and let the Chinese see how long it lasts if they piss us off.

I will leave it to Janes and others who evaluate these things for a living. The Su - 27 isn't even the best the Russians have - and again - according to the people who evaluate these things for a living - the F-18 Super Hornet is more than a match for the Su-27. The F22 Raptor is currently out top of the line for proven air to air combat - that we know of. I know this board is full of experts - but China has ONE aircraft carrier. Easy to bash U.S. - and rightfully so when it comes to our politicians and a few other things - but our military is second to none - not even close. Israel may have better piolets man to man - but ours are pretty damn good - and I can assure you, for all the huffing from the bear wrestler Putin or the Chinese - they don't want any part of it if we let our military do what they have been trained to do. It is the politicians with their Islamic Phobia fears that hold us back. We could defeat that entire region within a month or two if we were allowed to take the gloves off and stop worrying about winning hearts and minds and concentrated more on kicking the fucking shit out of them. Same goes for Russia or China - may take a little longer - but the result would be the same.

Pierre Sprey was a co-designer of the F-16 and the A-10.  He jumped ship on the F-15 because it became hopelessly expensive and complex. He and two air force officers wanted to have the US military built cheaper planes and a hotter fighter with the F-16.  The F-16 may still be one of the best fighters in the world.

Sprey says the F-35 is trash and the F-22 is not much better.  The F-18 is better than both but is no match for some of the newer Russian jets like the SU-35.

F-14s have a higher kill ratio than the F-15, claiming 164-1, 159 by Iranian F-14s to 1 loss, citing a Tom Cooper book for the info. True - most were later model MIGS -- but with our radar and weapons platforms. along with a 40 year jump on them in training (Top Gun and Red Rlag) which simulate real air to air combat - our piolets are so far superior to the Russian or chinese piolets it really isn't even comparable.

It appears this board - while loving to bash the U.S. and calling for a CRASH in the stock market for the past 4 years - the return you will get betting on the U.S. losing a war to either Russia or China will be about as good as it would have been if you have been trading the advice offered on this board - your will be dead assed broke.

What's a "pioleted" plane ? Do you mountain climb much ?

Spare me of statistics that would include some 3rd world shitholes. To shut down a Russian piloted aircraft would imply a fight against Russia. If the world ever gets to that point, your "victorious" America would look, at the very best, like a Friday night Ferguson riot... Others can take their gloves off too, you bonehead! I don't think that many people around here are really cheering for a market crash, since it would only make their lives miserable. However, regardless of our preferences, the FED is doing a perfect job of taking all of us there, at full speed.

As to trading advice...the advice I got was to stop trading.  Which I've done since 2009.  My 401-k contributions went to zero.  My gains are up 40%, and I know it's all casino money so I can lose 40% of my 401k without a problem.

Pierre Sprey who helped co-design the F-16 and A-10, two planes the Air Farce did not want because they were relative cheap, said a Mig-21 could easily beat a F-35 and a F-16 would shread it.  He also said stealth is a scam.

Rail guns are science fiction and reveal a lack of STEM in their fans.

Think about it.

SSBM's start off at -0-, accelerate slowly during their ascent, enter LESO with little air resistance, add more speed, then plummet to earth after they have accelerated outside of the thickest part of the atmosphere.

Rail guns accelerate the projectile to max V withing a few metres, all in the lower atmosphere. Friction, heat, scoring of the barrel, fire from the destruction of the atmosphere as it passes through, all serve to make the device foolish.

Not to mention the hypersonic velocity will cause an extremely loud BANG that will blow out windows and walls and kill anyone standing nearby.

It's a smaller version of a sea level mass driver into orbit.

Both ideas are bad science.

You're a dumbass. All that already happens with black powder fired weapons. The projectile gets accelerated to max V in a few meters, all in the lower atmosphere. The barrel doesn't get scored beyond use. and it doesn't set the air on fire as it moves through the atmosphere. They aren't really trying to reinvent the wheel. They are trying to get rid of tons, and tons of gun powder on a ship that people will be shooting at.

Well I purchased a mechanical automatic watch that was Chinese made by a Company called Seagull. I was over Quartz watch battery replacement. It has 34 jewel movement with two complications ( retrograde actions). It is Stainless steel case with curved Saphire glass front and rear, which is rare in any watch. After wearing it continually for 3 years I would have to say it is accurate beyond ISO standards, losing only 8 seconds per week, its finish better than any watch under 10k. I then find out that this manufacturer is the only maker in the World who can make a twin flying Taboullion. Indeed they supply the movements to the big name ($150-400k) makers to put in their cases.

You can't afford the best they have and you can't afford to ignore the fact.

An ancient relic that was well on its way to the dustbin of time until certain companies started banning the use of mobile phones on site, at which point the wrist watch has enjoyed a small resurgence in demand by those workers who don't want to miss the bus home that night.



There are many reasons for the banning of mobile phones on site.  It first happened many years after the appearance of the "one-armed apprentice" (the other arm was permanently texting).  I have no idea how the one-armed apprentice survived, given that he appeared to be sending text messages at a rate that must have been equivalent of, or exceeding his hourly rate of pay at the time.  In "defence" (there is no real defence) of the "one-armed apprentice", given we had no parts on site, I guess he wasn't really putting much of a dent into "productivity".  Yes this was a private operation and NOT a government job so don't give me any of that "efficiency of private enterprise" crap.  Banning of cell phones was probably also linked to the appearance of cameras on such devices.  That way only "official" pictures can escape the work front.  This can be (not is) a good thing.  Note for those taking photos on site:  Keep workmates out of the photo in case some nazi later thinks they are doing something wrong.  (No experience, it's just common sense.)

Cause the F-35 "Flying Piano" is a single engine multi-purpose aircraft that was ruined by numerous prior Administrations wanting it to do everything instead of being a great replacement for the F-16 as it should be.

Much like Hitler wanted the Me-262 to also be a ground attack aircraft.

Or like McNamara wanting the F-111 to be a Navy carrier aircraft!!

The Russian jets are damn near indestructible. I hear you can literally fly them off a dirt strip.

Plus since they aren't as technologically sophisticated they have way fewer servicing hours per flight hour which = more birds ready to fly.

The fookin' Chinese have a lotta nerve accusing us of spying, when their spies infest every facet of American industry — especially defense, and stealing all the info they can.

They are industrial spies first, last, and always. I worked in a big defense company for 30 years and the Chinese engineers were always jabbering in Chinese to each other, their heads about two inches apart and their eyes always darting around. They were real friendly, though. The person in charge of H.R. told me that most of them had relatives on the mainland, and getting them security clearences was a big hassle because of that. But they always got them. Eventually the company put up signs here and there, that said: Only U.S. Citizens Allowed Beyond This Point

Anyone who believes there is not immense pressure brought to bear on Chinese working in U.S. companies to forward all the info they can back to the PRC is naive. It doesn't take too many hints about their relatives back home to get cooperation...

If it were up to me, I'd, umm-m... *export* every Chinese engineer who wasn't at least a 3rd generation American.
