it certainly sounds like a credible threat that things are heating up more and more over the "disputed" territories. this as the Philippines takes
China before a UN arbitral tribunal, to try to stop the Chinese aggression.
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines has taken the step of bringing its West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) disputes to China before an
Arbitral Tribunal under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Unclos) for a peaceful resolution, Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert Del
Rosario announced Tuesday. Del Rosario, in a press conference, said that a note verbale detailing the Philippine’s claim that “challenges before
the Arbitral Tribunal the validity of China’s nine-dash claim to almost the entire South China Sea (SCS) including the West Philippine Sea and
asking China to desist from unlawful activities that violate the sovereign rights and jurisdiction of the Philippines under the 1982 UNCLOS” was
handed to Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Ma Keqing at around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Del Rosario, in the press conference, said that the Philippines wants the UN arbitral tribunal to issue a declaration saying that China’s
nine-dash line claim were invalid and were contrary to Unclos; directing China to respect the Philippines’ sovereign rights and jurisdiction over
its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), continental shelf, contiguous zone, and territorial sea over the West Philippine Sea; and to ask China to desist
from activities that violate the country’s sovereign rights.
i think a question is would China even abide by a UN decision? or are they to the point of commitment to their plans. we have heard about China asking
their army to prepare for a regional war as being discussed here www.abovetopsecret.com...
China said it was normal for its marine surveillance aircraft to fly over the disputed Diaoyu islands after Japan scrambled fighter jets to
intercept the Chinese aircraft early on Thursday. Within hours of the incident, Communist Party of China (CPC) general secretary was quoted by the
state media as ordering the largest armed forces in the world, People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to be ready to win “regional wars.”
so it seems that China is getting ready to TAKE what they wrongfully claim as theirs. sending a "back channel" message to Australia to keep out. is
rather telling that they are at least "testing the waters" before they commence their attack.
what is really scary is that i don't think they will stop at just the disputed territories
. i think that especially when it comes to the
Philippines that they will claim the rest of the Philippines as being in their area of control
, and work there way from there, to gobble up at
least a fair portion of what the Japanese referred to as the southern resource area. this is nothing more than China illegally trying to take what
resources they want. in all honesty Australia may even be included in this for their land and resources. i also suspect they will also go after the
Japanese main islands as well. the Chinese have no love for the Japanese (in a lot of ways rightfully so), after what the Japanese did to China in
ww2. and i would expect if they were to take the Japanese home islands we will hear about rather brutal reprisals to the Japanese because of it.
it even brings to mind the German anexization and attacks that started ww2, "we just want this then we will stop" but yet taking more and more. as
France and Britain sat back until it was obvious that Germany had no intentions of stopping. lets NOT REPEAT PAST MISTAKES, if China starts up they
NEED TO BE TAKEN DOWN, and it will likely take just about the world to stop the country that has the LARGEST military land forces and navy. we can't
wait like back then until it's almost too late to stop them. after a goodly portion of those who would stand up to them are taken one by one. like
happened in Europe in the early days of ww2.
