So as I see it, China is upset because THAAD could be used to identify ballistic missile launches from China? Because for some reason they think they should be able to launch ballistic missiles with less early warning. Because part of global nuclear strategy is that we should all put blinders on against any nation attempting to nuke another nation? So they think there is no need to be on alert against them because why would China even use an ICBM, and this insults them somehow? So they think they should be able to field ICBMs without any sort of defensive measures in place? Maybe we should be upset they have ICBMs in the first place. This seems like a case of "If you aren't doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about." Does China's frustration seem reasonable to anyone who can explain why?

At least their concern proves that THAAD works as advertised.

Shut up, China - just shut up already.
You bank and back North Korea. Without you we wouldn't be in this mess of a near nuclear showdown. We don't want this. We never asked for it. It's China's financial and political backing of the North Korean regime - even until last month - that caused all of this. Just shut up already. You cause this mess and now you want us and our allies and friends be without defense? Ate you serious? Shut up! This is not how a friend acts. Either be open about your intentions, help, or shut the f up.

Am I the only one who's fed up with China grabbing land, bullying other nations and prepping up one of the most dangerous and inhumane regimes?

And look at how they are suppressing free speech in Hong Kong for the last few years. We - the west - need to wake up about China. They've been stealing our technology for decades (we let them), they are undermining free speech everywhere including on the Internet, they bully their neighbours, they prep up hostile regimes. You know how the saying goes: if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck... China is an adversary nation. Has been all this time and we've ignored it. When they can - they will come for our free speech as well. They have tried so before.
