The United States threatened China with "long-term consequences"

The current actions of China, affecting the interests of other states, will not remain without consequences, transfers TASS statement by White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders.

Journalists asked Sanders to comment on the incidents (as the Pentagon stated at least) about “interfering with the American military pilots in Djibouti through the use of lasers from the Chinese military base” in this African country. In addition, the representative of the administration asked what the White House thought about the transfer by Beijing of anti-ship missile systems and air defense systems to the disputed Spratly islands in the South China Sea.

We are well aware of the militarization by China of the South China Sea. We expressed concern about this directly to the Chinese side, and there will be both short-term and long-term consequences,
Sanders said.

Recall information about the delivery of missile weapons to the Spratly Islands, whose ownership is disputed by several countries of the Asia-Pacific region, was released by CNBC.

    This is most needed! What are the US claims? Again they refer to international law, they say, the interests of other states are hurt ... Others, not theirs ... The gendarmes are fig!

      The Chinese put a large "fastener" on the United States and others. Give them time and they will put it wrong!
      Even with the Americans will have to unite against China!)

        . Everything is just like a lowing. The Chinese, as usual, simply tricked the United States and stopped dancing at the dancers. The Americans will either put the Chinese in a * stall * or have to reluctantly retreat, and then real problems will begin for the United States.

          A wise monkey was tired of looking at the languid squabble of tigers under a tree, and she decided to leave coconuts in one of them

      So right, the Chinese put the world on the edge of the abyss with laser pointers. Weapons on the new physical principles are first rattled, according to peaceful bombers, and then they are surprised for the long-term and short-term consequences.

        China is not Iran and not Korea. They will find something to respond to threats.
        And also in the USA, the Chinese are up to a fig. Do you think they will like the threats to their homeland?

    And what does the USA need in this region? And in general everywhere they stick their nose ... But what if we come back to America with our interests with China and Russia? There, in general, you have terrible violations of the rights of Indians and African Americans ..
    Not afraid of this option in the future?

    there will be both short-term and long-term consequences
    You look at the map - where is the United States and where is the South China Sea. But here the Americans have their own interests and, of course, related to "national security." And they didn’t think that the name of the sea alone indicates who should really have interests there. The more the United States runs into China, the closer it will be to Russia. And today it is profitable for us.

    the sea is called the South CHINESE. Where is the USA there?
    although not everything is so simple. the sea washes the shores of nearly a dozen countries. Malaysia. Indonesia me etc. You always want to fish in troubled waters.

    China takes foreign (disputed) territory without ceremony. I watch videos on YouTube, how he bends Russia in this regard ... And what kind of military amphibious systems it accepts is clearly not for capturing America.
