SYDNEY, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- China's artificial island building in the South China Sea is a product of defending its historical territory claims and not a case of territorial expansion, an Australian expert has told Xinhua.
China's reclamation efforts in the Nansha Islands http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-josh-kline-jersey/ , though not illegal, have shocked strategic analysts despite the moves being made so China avoids conflict with other claimants who have already occupied all "natural" islands in the area.
"The idea that the building of these artificial islands is somehow creeping territorial expansionism is really not what China thinks it is," said Professor Greg Austin, fellow at the EastWest Institute in New York and visiting professor at the University of New South Wales, Canberra.
Austin, a former Australian intelligence analyst turned academic who has studied the South China Sea for over 30 years, said China is defending historical claims that were first made in 1933 by the then government and date back almost five centuries.
"China is trying to keep alongside a position against the rival claimants who have occupied all of the natural islands. China's only natural option was to build up these artificial Islands."
The land reclamation efforts are essentially a catching up of what other regional claimants have previously done: expand the islands they hold and build "what you might call reasonable forward posts that are habitable http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-jonnu-smith-jersey/ ," Austin said.
"We shouldn't allow our shock at China's building up of artificial islands to somehow convince us that this is naked aggression by China. It's not naked aggression," Austin said, noting the threat to commercial shipping is "completely fabricated."
"There is no evidence of any Chinese government attack or pressure on any commercial shipping in the South China Sea since 1949 when the Communist Party took control of the Chinese mainland, and even before."
The only countries to ever use significant force against commercial shipping in the South China Sea were the Japanese and allied forces against each other in World War II.
Austin all but rejected assertions of a regional conflict between China, the United States and other claimants as stressed by U.S. Republican lawmakers - in an election year - following the first test flights of commercial aircraft landing on Yongshu Jiao.
Instead, Austin suggested the current rhetoric is "stoking the level of political intensity," given Vietnam and the Philippines also have airfields and military assets in the disputed areas.
"What this is about is geopolitical positioning http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-johnathan-cyprien-jersey/ ," Austin said.
"The complaint now is that the Chinese have outdone the Vietnamese and the Philippines," from a greater access to wealth and capability to build the airfields.
"The recent tensions in the South China Sea are serious (but) they're more political than military," Austin said.
He said it is time for Chinese and regional authorities to be "a bit more creative" and called on China to take a leadership role and settle the dispute once and for all.
"As senior Chinese officials have said in the last two weeks, China showed great flexibility, great responsiveness in negotiating disputed land boundaries along its border in the last 20 to 30 years, including the disputed border with the former Soviet Union and Russia," Austin said.
"We're really looking to China now to see how it can apply its creativity to try and settle down its dispute."
CHANGCHUN http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-jeremiah-poutasi-jersey/ , July 31 (Xinhua) -- In a small, enclosed booth, with lights, speakers and microphones, anyone can be a singing superstar!
In China, mini karaoke (KTV) booths are taking the country by storm. The sound-proofed KTV booth is typically equipped with an air-conditioner, a couple of chairs and headsets. You pay a fee http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-jayon-brown-jersey/ , put on the headset, close the curtain and sing your lungs out.
Mini KTVs are everywhere: shopping malls, cinemas, subway stations. They have a similar function to traditional karaoke, but in a more intimate environment.
"No matter how good or bad I sing, nobody can judge me, and I can just have my moment http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-jalston-fowler-jersey/ ," said Li Rui from Changchun City, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province.
Li said that in traditional KTVs, you have to reserve rooms in advance and there are always "extra charges" such as beverages and fruit.
According to research company iiMedia, the value of the mini KTV market in China will hit 3.18 billion yuan (473 million U.S. dollars) this year, almost twice as much as last year. And market is expected to double again in 2018.
For many urbanites singing is just a way of relieving stress.
"In the past, hosting a party in a KTV meant you had to invite a lot of people, set up a date when everybody was free and book a room http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-jack-conklin-jersey/ , which was not so easy," said Ma Yan, a music fan. "But with mini KTV booths, everything is easy."
Another reason behind the mini KTV fervor is the joy of sharing.
"Most mini KTVs allow you to record yourself and upload, so I can share the recording on WeChat and get a lot of 'likes' from friends," said Guo Hanyu of Shenyang, Liaoning Province.
Liu Wei http://www.teamtitansshop.com/women-harry-douglas-jersey/ , a professor with Jilin University, said that the mini KTVs put the user in control, which makes the process "a lot more fun and personal."
The interest has drawn a lot of investors. Prices of mini KTV booths range from about 10,000 yuan to 30,000 yuan.
