China says it tracked US bomber flights through zone

“China is terrible at telling its side of the story. The silent one is the loser so why don’t they better explain our response to the American bomber flight,” wrote Hu Xijin (胡錫進), editor of the state-run Global Times, on his blog.

Chinese academics, who often serve as ad-hoc government spokesmen, criticized Tuesday’s flights as a crude show of force and said Beijing was not looking for a fight.

“It’s not that China didn’t want to enforce its demands, but how do you expect China to react?” said Zhu Feng (朱鋒), an international security expert at Peking University.
