Why China Cannot Rise Peacefully
What? U.S.A can’t afford to pay China their loan?
China looms large in the world today.
China is innocent of all the terrible things that China demonizers accuse her of.
But the mere fact that she is a recovering world power provokes paranoia in the US-led Empire of Chaos.

China got every right to the Spratly Islands http://thepoisonappleoftheworld.com/7th-ccb-creaming-speech-china-got-every-right-to-the-spratly-islands/
Edwin Chen It was returned to the Republic of China, from Japan, after the end of WWII. The US Navy helped the Republic of China conduct an official survey of the South China Sea. In this new survey new reefs were discovered and methodically chartered. This was done specifically for political purposes in order to give more weight to the return of this historically Chinese area. China was the preeminent logistical and maritime power which regularly dominated the South China Sea with her goods, fishermen and travelers. Today, China does not control all of the South China Sea, and is not militarily removing the foreign occupiers. She is merely reinforcing what she has left. Through sheer usage and mass Chinese traffic she will control it anyway. This is an inevitable reality no matter who tries to claim it. Only China has the merchant marine, and naval forces that are large enough to control this area, which is larger than the Mediterranean Sea.
oon Chiching Exactly, the RoC stationed troops in Taiping Island since 1946. France tried to grab hold as it was Vietnam’s ruler but backed off after protest fr China.

Bevin Chu Thanks for sharing that valuable information. It is good “intellectual ammunition” to use against those who would attempt to deny China’s sovereignty over the region.
The kangaroo court is headed by a right wing Japanese, and everyone knows Japan had been illegally occupying the Diaoyu islands and in a similar dispute with China. Four out of five judges were handpicked by this Japanese.
The arbitration can only work if both sides accept to abide by the outcome prior to the proceeding, and only after both sides have already carried out discussion with each other. Both of these conditions were absent. Philippines claimed that between 1995 and 2012, 50 discussions have been conducted with no result. They lied. According to Alberto Encomienda, the Philippines diplomat in charge in this issue, despite China repeatedly asked Philippines to sit down to have a dialog to resolve the dispute, Philippines HAD NOT RESPONDED EVEN ONCE.
The kangaroo court should have been dissolved under that circumstances but it didn’t, and this is not in accordance with acceptable norms.
Then the kangaroo court ignored the fact that under UNCLOS, article 298 grants rights to signatories to exclude areas that they want to be excluded from the interpretation and interference of UNCLOS, and China had already listed all the nine dash lines areas in article 298. This is a clear case of showing contempt on China’s rights. Bear in mind that China isn’t the only country making use of the rights conferred under article 298. At least 43 other signatories have done the same. In fact, out of the five permanent members of the Security Council, other than US (which rejected UNCLOS although ironically it wants to force China to adhere to it), every one of them made use of article 298.
Finally, UNCLOS’ spirit is supposed to promote harmony in maritime matter but NOT to rule on sovereignty issues. The kangaroo court went ahead anyway to rule on China’s sovereignty of that area.
China’s claim over the solid is water tight and solid., here are why.
As far back as the Han Dynasty(206-220BC), the South China Sea and these islands and rocks were already discovered during their navigation and work. At that time, SCS was named as “Zhang Sea” and these various groups of islands collectively as “Qitou”.
During the Sui (581-618AD) and Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), specific names were assigned to individual islands and area of seas and these included “Jiaoshi Mountain”(礁石山), Xiang Rock (象石), “Qizhou Sea” (七州洋), etc, reflecting the activities of the Chinese people at that time in these places.
During the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), the Chinese people began using proper names such as Shitang (石塘) and Changsha (长沙) to name these islands and rocks and to include them and their surrounding waters within the scope of administration of Hainan Province, area of economic zone, and defence.
Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368AD) continued to use these names such as Shitang and Changsha, and many capitals and cities also adopted these terms to be the name of some Chinese cities throughout subsequent dynasties.
The “Miscellaneous Record of South Sea Defensive Command Manual” (海南卫指挥佥事柴公墓志铭) recorded that during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644AD) Hainan Navy had over 10,000 soldiers and 50 large ships patrolling the Xisha, Zhongsha, and Nansha Islands. Various versions of Sea Navigation Manuals called “Genlubu”(更路簿) were produced during the Ming Dynasty showing detailed maps, names (of 22 Xisha and 76 Nansha islands), possible routes, fishing areas, and weather conditions to these islands and rocks. The various versions reflected centuries of navigational experience and economic activities in the region. Within the “Genlubu” also contains government instruction on issues such as boundary on where fishermen were allowed to venture into, amount of food they were to bring along, and size of the boats they’re permitted to use, clearly illustrates Guangdong provincial government administration were already in place during the Ming Dynasty.
From the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912AD) to the Republic of China, there were various efforts to formerly asserts sovereignty over these islands and rocks and to clearly show them on maps. For example in 1909, the Qing government sent Admiral Li Zhun (李准) from Guangdong to visit and survey the Xisha, Dongsha, Nansha, Zhongsha Islands during which he also named 15 additional islands and rocks.
In 1935, the Republic of China government appraised and verified the names of various islands and published the “South China Sea Islands Map” (中国南海岛屿图), clearly illustrates the inclusion of these Islands as Chinese territory.
According to international laws and principals four conditions must ALL be met to be able to claim sovereignty over them:
1. First to discover
2. First to name
3. First to begin human activities
4. First to begin government administration.
China is the ONLY country that has met all of these four conditions as evidenced by “Genlubu” produced during the Ming dynasty or for some of the islands even further back to the Song Dynasty.
At the conclusion of WW2 and prior to discovery of oil, everyone recognised those territories to be part of China, including USA and Vietnam, with no objection from Philippines.
The Cairo Conference of November 22-26, 1943, held in Cairo, Egypt, outlined the Allied position against Japan during World War II and made decisions about postwar Asia. The meeting was attended by President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Winston Churchill, and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek of the Republic of China The main clauses of the Cairo Declaration are that the three great allies are fighting this war to restrain and punish the aggression of Japan that Japan be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized o occupied since the beginning of the First World War in 1914, all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, including Manchuria, Formosa, and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed and that due course Korea shall become free and independent.
United States even helped KMT government military to recover those islands from the Japanese.
The most respected mapping company in United States had for decades at lease from 1947 edition to 1994 edition consistently showed those territories to be part of China. (link will be provided later for your verification).
The whole dispute could have been peacefully resolved between claimants’ countries through bilateral discussion, and China had a great track records in doing so without starting aggressive wars. Such a track record include resolving the dispute with Malaysia. Philippines, however, prodded by USA, refused to discuss, no matter how reasonable and patient China has been in offering joint development.
That bring us to the issue on the strength of Philippines ‘only claim. We need to go back to the Philippines history to understand that its boundary was clearly defined by the treaty of Paris and treaty of Washington, both of which clearly stated that they EXCLUDE those islands and rocks. President Ramos amended the constitution to bring in areas, claiming that those islands and rocks belonged to nobody so since Philippines is the first to discover it, it is the rightful owner. But we had already provided historical evidence from China’s side proving otherwise, so Philippines claim is invalid to begin with.
Despite this, because China is a peace loving country rather than the monster that the west tries so hard to portray it to be, it told Philippine to have joint development to share the resources. But USA does not want Philippines to do so, as this would derail its plan to encircle and contain a rising China. That’s how we ended up with today’s situation.
China’s Sovereignty over the South China.
Sea Islands: A Historical Perspective China’s Sovereignty over the South China by Jianming Shen
China has always taken the Nansha Islands, the Xisha Islands, Zhongsha Islands (Macclesfield Banks) and Dongsha Islands (Pratas Reefs) and the adjacent waters as part of the Chinese territory and waters. She established and has maintained her sovereignty over these island chains by ways of
discovery, naming, mapping, patrol and control, public and private use, administrative allocation of jurisdiction, and other manifestations of authority throughout history.
Indeed, there seems to have been widespread anti-China propaganda among and by some politicians, commentators and journalists in the West and certain parts of Asia, possibly by reason of conspiracy, bias, misinformation, or otherwise, to have put much of the blame for the disputes on China as if it were China that was the invader or that had caused the troubles. This article, from a historical perspective, and partly based on materials newly available to me since 1996 (including some photographed pages of relevant Chinese historical books reproduced here as evidentiary exhibits), aims at neutralizing the effects of such ignorance and/or distortions by examining how the disputes arose, and why China possesses sound and solid sovereignty claims to the disputed areas that should prevail over the claims of competing States.
China was the first to have discovered the islands in the South China Sea. Chinese history books contain numerous references to the Chinese people’s knowledge and actual use of the South China Sea throughout history.
In Yi Zhou Shu ( Scattered Books of the Zhou Dynasties) written in early Qin Dynasty, it was recorded that in the Xia Dynasty (21st century-16th century B.C.) the tributes from the South Sea by the southern “barbarians” to the Xia rulers were zhuji dabei (pearl- carrying shellfish), hawksbill turtles, and these tributes continued through the Shang Dynasty (16th century-11th century B.C.) the Zhou Dynasties (11th century-221 B.C.) and the East Zhou (770-221 B.C.), and the Zhou (221-206 B.C.) and Han (206 B.C-220 A.D.) Dynasties.
According to Yi Zhou Shu, six southern “barbarian” peoples were ordered to contribute “pearl-carrying shellfish” (Zhuhji), “hawksbill turtles” (daimao) and other rarities to the rulers of the West Zhou Dynasty. Daimao was described in Nan zhou Yiwu Zhi (Records of Rarities of the Southern Territories) as “living in the southern sea” (sheng nan fang hai zhong), which denotes the Xisha and the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea. Indeed, zhuji, dabei and daimao are all produces of the Xisha and the Nansha Islands…
..The above passages provide sufficient evidence that the South China Sea Islands were already destinations of Chinese expeditions and targets of conquests during the East Zhou Dynasty (770-221 B.C.) which comprised the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.) and the Warring States Period (475-221 B.C.) suggesting that the South China Sea Islands might have been discovered by the Chinese in an even earlier era. Such discovery and conquest has naturally led the Chinese rulers and people to believe that the South China Sea Islands were part of China throughout history, from the Xia Dynasty (21st—16th centuries B.C.) to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)….

KNN ah tiong calling us Yellow Skin Black Hearted… and claimed 70% of the Chinese here all their descendent, tell us better to remember our root #SingaporeIsNotChina
Samuel Ngo And the forthcoming realization of the Kra Canal Project with full backing from China will deal the death blow to the tiny chauvinistic Singapore whose political leaders only worship MONEY and hide behind the BIG BULLY but shows NO RESPECT for the Motherland of 75% of its population even as they are part of Asia and not America!
Te Pu Win What I see is that the CPC leaders have long memory; very loyal to their friends, such as Kuok Hok Nin, and quietly remember how LKY was so very extremely anti-Communist when he got elected and then turned on Lim Cheng Siong, who deserved 1st merit for his support.
Dennis Etler Singapore, HK and Taiwan all need a good spanking with a learning stick so they finally realize who the hell they are.
Samuel Ngo Well said, Dennis. I think California, Texas and Quebec as well.

In a political talkshow covering international relations, two China political analysts discussed Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s handling of China’s relationship and criticized him for lacking eloquence and experience unlike his father Lee Kuan Yew.
Below is the transcript between the two analysts:
“The Japanese are like Germans. They were invaders during World War 2 and murdered many Chinese and Koreans. If they have reflected on their past and felt ashamed of their behaviour following an apology, China will have no grounds to keep pursuing for an apology from Japan. If Japan has been apologetic, Lee Hsien Loong can then have the right to tell China not to keep heckling Japan for an apology. However, this is not the case. Lee Hsien Loong appears like he is sucking up to Shinzo Abe and hurt Chinese and Koreans’ feelings. Lee Hsien Loong understands the importance of Sino-Japan relationship and the need to understand the background behind this relationship, but he is inexperienced and not diplomatic enough to handle the territorial disputes unlike his father Lee Kuan Yew.
In the past, his father can be his consultant while Lee Hsien Loong remains as Prime Minister. If Lee Hsien Loong said something wrong, his father can remind him and Lee Hsien Loong will apologize. For example, in July 2015, Lee Hsien Loong hinted China not to adopt a hard line attitude, then right after that comment a month later in August, China’s Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi flew to Singapore and reiterated that China do not allow any country to interfere with it’s domestic policies in South China Sea. China is trying to warn Lee Hsien Loong that he should be mindful of his words.
China has been reclaiming land in it’s own territories and there is no issue with South China Sea. The Americans set up an army base in Okinawa but the Japanese residents want them out. Guam is not America, but US insists on having a base there. Why did Lee Hsien Loong keep quiet on these? Lee Hsien Loong is not as tactical as his father and this is Lee Hsien Loong’s crisis, which is why I am worried. His incompetence in handling China’s relationships will affect Singapore’s future negatively.”
“Lee Hsien Loong inherited the government from his father. This second generation government is important but unlike his father, he did not see the hardships of World War 2. Lee Kuan Yew commands respect worldwide and that promoted Singapore’s status. Foreign delegates knew that Lee Kuan Yew has retired in his later years but would still continue to consult his views, and Lee Kuan Yew was able to use his intelligence to tackle the questions. His son however is still lacking in such qualities.”
