Another WU MAO born lol!

China got SUED and she ran away from the COURT.

The head of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) has appointed the remaining three members of the five-member United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) Arbitral Tribunal, including the president, that will hear the Statement of Claim filed by the Philippines against China on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).

China's 9 dash claim will be invalidated soon!

Aquino walks like a gangster just like the Nth Korean leader walks. I can't believe my eyes when I saw them walking to inspect their armies on tv.

Nope, I am aware of Wu Mao but I am not one. I don't claim to like majority of the PRC people and I think many of PRC's food and medicine are dangerous to human consumption, but they are improving.

For selfish reason, I would like to see Vietnam and Philippine out of South China Sea, so that when I sail my boat through, I am not in danger of encountering a pirate, PCG or Vietnam Marine Police, they are all the same. I have a Singapore registered boat and I do like to fish a few tunas because I am hungry, not poaching. Can't expect me to carry the fish all the way from Malaysia or Singapore supermarkets right? Hopefully these barbarians will show some respect, because of Singapore where there are many OFW picnic at orchard road on Sunday.

Also Falklands is still under UK, primarily because we have superior military force and the people of Falklands are with us. If we don't, then the Argentinians will use all kinds of excuse to claim it, be it EEZ & UNLCOS or whatever.

For you case of South China Sea, it has been with the Chinese since Ming dynasty and the Nationalist government since WWII. I don't believe Philippine has a legal claim at all, just like you guys try to claim Sabah.

Vietnamese Back Philippines AGAINST CHINA.
http://thediplomat.com/asean-beat/2012/05/24/...
In a new twist this week to the stand-off between China and the Philippines
at Scarborough Shoal, 66 Vietnamese, many of them well-known public figures
in Vietnam and within the Vietnamese Diaspora, signed a letter to the
Philippine Ambassador in Vietnam to express support for the Philippines’
“sovereign rights” in the continuing stand-off. The main points of the
letter are:
1) Support for the “sovereign rights” of the Philippines in the Scarborough
Shoal.
2) Opposition to China’s use of the “nine-dashed line” to make overlapping
claims with the Exclusive Economic Zones and continental shelves of the
Philippines, Vietnam and other ASEAN countries, as well as opposition to
“China’s actions and threats of force,” the latter presumably referring to
articles in China’s state controlled press.
3) Support for the Philippines’ proposal to submit the dispute at
Scarborough Shoal to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea
(ITLOS).
Of course Viet Cong will do that. Viet Cong or Philippine alone or combined will have no match for China militarily. Somehow I feel Viet Cong may still have some logic behind it's claim, but not a strong case. Philippine's case is just bizzare, no historical basis, just because some islands are nearer to Philippine mainland.

Well, you don't have to spam the forum with repeated posting of your Wu Mao.

Actually, Philippine may get away with a positive judgement from UNLCOS, mainly because UN is run by lobby groups representing interest of different nations and regions, not necessary based on the merit of the case itself.

At the end of the day, the judgement has no legal binding. The disputing countries still have to sort it out themselves. US and South Americans all asked UK and Argentina to go for UN mediation, but we can refuse because we are strong enough and because it's just a waste of time and money.

You can say whatever you want to say but

China’s refusal to JOIN the PHILIPPINES in the Permanent Court of Arbitration or to the United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ) or to the United Nation’s International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) by itself is a tacit admission that it cannot prove its so called historical claim before a proper neutral court.

China is scared of the COURT because her 9 dash claim is ILLEGAL.

If the PHILIPPINES has no STRONG BASIS, then why did they SUE CHINA?

And why did CHINA ran away from the COURT?

You dont have to think, just use your COMMON SENSE.

The Philippines is NOT SCARED to go to the COURT because their claim is VERY STRONG.

While China ran away from the court because her 9 dash claim is VERY WEAK under International law.

China on Friday rejected the Philippines' move for international arbitration by a UN body over islands in the South China Sea claimed by both the countries.

The Philippines had applied for arbitration by the international tribunal on the Law of the Sea, which has now set up a committee to hear the case.

Too bad for CHINA, the CASE will proceed without their presence.

CHINA'S 9 dash claim will be invalidated soon!

China rejects UN arbitration on West Phl Sea

China has rejected and returned yesterday the Notification and Statement of Claim of the Philippine government to initiate arbitral proceedings against its nine-dash-line claim in the West Philippine Sea, but the process will proceed despite Beijing’s latest action.

Sources said Chinese Ambassador Ma Keqing was at the Department of Foreign Affairs yesterday to meet with officials of the DFA-Asia Pacific Affairs desk and inform them that China was returning the note and accompanying notice on arbitration.

Ma reportedly told the DFA that the Chinese government would not accept international proceedings over the dispute.

----------

CHINA IS SCARED OF THE COURT BECAUSE SHE HAS NO LEGAL BASIS

AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
