China ROUGE nation, of course it is. Its national flag is red and red symbolises the CCP. But Philippine is the ROGUE Nation.
Even if other nations don't support, they all want to have a peaceful solution to the problem. Philippine's approach is confrontational, which it cannot afford financially without having a significant impact on the lives of its people. Just imagine, if Philippine spends billions on defense, where is it going to find money for education, infrastructure and economic development etc. The only people who benefit are the politicians and high ranking army officers. Still your annual defence spending is probably just 1% of China. China can take 6 months to build an aircraft carrier, Philippine takes 5 years to buy a frigate, much to the delight of your weapon suppliers.
The Philippines invited CHINA to settle the DISPUTE before any U.N. court which is the MOST PEACEFUL WAY to settle dispute.
You call that confrontational?
China has been harassing to the Philippines, VIETNAM, JAPAN, Malaysia and brunei with her navy and air force.
C'mon that is a healdline everyday!
The world knows CHINA is getting in to a ROUGE NATION like north korea.
China rejected UN COURT ARBITRATION because her 9 dash claim is ILLEGAL under international law, as simple as that!
