And not so funny:

When commenting on territorial disputes and separatist movements in Taiwan, Tibet, Xinjiang and neighbouring sea areas, Chinese diplomats and media routinely claim all such areas as an “indisputable part of China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Fu Ying said late Monday Beijing was ready for “any escalation” of the maritime standoff with the Philippines that has become one of the most high-profile flare ups over the South China Seas and its vast oil and gas deposits in years.
