Both sides have huge demands, it looks like hardball time and that is exactly the message the Chinese military has been sending. Like I said before, if you really want to understand how the Chinese government led by the Communist Party is thinking and planning to do, just look at the actions of the Chinese military! The Chinese military literally takes an oath to protect the communist party, not the government, not the Constitution of China or even the Chinese people. Keep that in mind! Recent Chinese military actions tell everyone exactly what the Party thinks and intends to do.
