Relax, don't react too much. They just want to shake your braincells and see how far Philippines can go. All Filipinos should put their head together. They are just trying to get your weaknesses. They are studying your Psychological reactions. Filipinos must learn how to respond in a constructive way. Yelling, screaming, name calling, throwing rocks etc, are not gonna solve the issue. Marvic Leonen, Juan Ponce Enrile and Mariam Santiago are the witty people so I think they could come up a constructive solutions.

*** Filipinos and Vietnam have deliberately ignored a lot of historical and legal facts in their disinformation campaign over South China Sea against China. But people with an objective mind will be able to verify such facts from materials kept by major libraries and govt archives!!!!***

Taiwan/Republic of China has made very consistent claims over the Paracels and Spratlys, and at the end of WW2, as a member of the victorious powers, ROC sent naval ships to accept many of these islands to resume sovereignty rights from the hands of the Japanese military. That is also made on the legitimate basis of the 9 section lines.

China maps with 9 section lines have been cited widely in old geography books or those in other subjects all over the world after WW2. Go to major university libraries and find some old American books.

Not only the allied powers did not object, and ROC's actions have won endorsement from them and there were no objection from any Asian countries.

All of the sudden with the finding of oil in the South China Sea, some countries opened their mouth to say these islands are "mine". All of the sudden, these people made such land claims ignoring their own constitutional documents and international treaties.

The famous 118 degree east longtitude line marks the territories of the Philippines as to the east. This border line was defined not only by several international treaties between Spain, USA, and Britain, but also consistently used as the basis of laws enacted by the Philippines govt (such as laws enacted in the 1960's).

(** You do not need to google such information. Go to any major and govt libraries in the Philippines, USA, Britain, and Spain, you can find the information of such treaties and the 118 degree line. Filipino people are ignoring such info. deliberately.**)

Suddenly, the Philippines reverses their policy.

But in additional to mainland China (PRC), and Taiwan/ROC, the Philippines and Vietnam, and in some locations Malaysia are competing for these islands and they also harrass the fishermen from the other side.

History and legal facts have been deliberately ignored by the Philippines and Vietnam in their disinformation campaign against China.

The abovementioned information can be easily verified by accessing materials in your major govt and university libraries if you want to.

Filipinos and Vietnames should assume and pretend that all people in the world are dumb and blind.

Ostrich mentality.

Any written historical or legal records you can show the world instead of empty verbal allegations made just recently?

*** But there are quite a few pieces of important domestic and international documents signed between your country and Spain, USA and Britain that say clearly that the Philippines has no legitimate claim over anything that is West of the 118 degree east longtitudinal line.***

You can burn all these treaties and laws enacted by your parliament in 1960's.

Bury the ashes and leave no trace of such documents.

After a while people in the world will forget everything about the 118 degree east line and your national border.

Take my advice!

Sorry, I forget to tell you (Filipino friends) one more thing.

In order to be thorough in your cleaning job, you should wash someone's brain too (such as that of your fellow countryman who has stubborn memory of past events (e.g. Mr. Victor Archer II whom the Chinese love and respect.)

If you need help, you can contact any communist or former communist country or the CIA.

You may contact China National Cleaning Services Import & Export Corporation. You should negotiate a favourable consulting rate for such services!!!

I wonder if Proctor & Gamble has a total solution for this purpose.
