    What a bias article!
    You’ve made China look not only petty but an arrogant & irrational bully as well! But ask yourself, why should China protest if it was not wronged in the first place?

    If someone wronged your family, the natural response is to demand an apology or cut off ties. You don’t spit on my family & earn my respect & money! Period!
