    China doesn't share the common values nor do they play by the same rules as international society. That is why I have been saying that America, Japan etc. has to stop bending over backwards to appease their interests.

    There are many counties that do not share the common rules and values of international society. There may be more that don't than do. The concept of common rules and values may be a developed country mirage.
