Beijing re-asserts it is ready for conflict over South China Sea dispute

Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece the Global Times has again invoked the likelihood of a war with the United States over the South China Sea dispute, saying Beijing will display a “fearlessness to fight”.

Entitled China must insist on island-building, the editorial begins by asserting that China values “regional peace” and is merely seeking to encourage economic development.

Washington believes Beijing is militarizing the disputed islands in a bid to expand its geopolitical hegemony and get access to lucrative gas and oil reserves.

However, the rhetoric soon becomes more jingoistic, with Beijing re-asserting the fact that it is prepared to go to war if the U.S. continues to interfere.

“China needs to make broad plans including countermeasures against more US intrusions. Beijing should be fully prepared, both mentally and physically, for possible military conflicts with the US. China needs to clearly express its unwillingness as well as fearlessness to fight,” states the editorial.

The piece is similar in tone to an editorial by the same publication last week that warned “war is inevitable” if Washington doesn’t halt its demands that Beijing stop building artificial islands.
