Beijing threatens US allies with military reprisals if conflict with China breaks out

The tone continues to rise in the Western Pacific, between the United States and China, both of which are increasing the bravado and provocations, both on the seas and in the media.

The article published in English, denounces the positions of the Australian authorities, qualifying the country of "henchman" of the United States, a term designating the armed forces of the feudal lords acting as mercenaries against retribution.
