China is overly imposing its superpower capability with its waging territorial dispute. If it were really a fair player, then it'd rather bring everything to international attention and international arbitration and laws, and not just on make everything, their success happen through their military's strength. They would definitely have to settle it first with smooth and peaceful talks. But as we can this isn't what Chinese are doing. And look at the countries to whom it's fighting against, the poor countries of the SEA especially Philippines. China claims everything that surround it its territory despite the fact that those surroundings also surround different countries and are in fact those countries' rightful territories. China simply thinks that he can do it with all its military strength. Well good luck, because even America despite being already a superpower, even more powerful than China also had a fair share of defeat.
