You should read this to get up to speed on what this legal ruling is:

Bottom line: A nearly across-the-board win for the Philippines, and a searing verdict on the lawfulness of China’s artificial island construction and other actions in the South China Sea.

Thank you for you sincere will to educate me, Sir! I am well aware of the ruling, and that China does not recognize the verdict. The question is if you are aware of the meaning of the word "dispute/disputed"? Below, I have provided the meaning:


argue about (something). For example: "the point has been much disputed"
Similarities with: debate, dicuss, argue, disagree, quarrel and clash etc.


So, when we have that out of the way, disputed suddenly seems like a perfect description of the situation. 🙂

Of course the countries of the world should accept the world courts rulings. However, there is no power at all behind them and they are only, according to law in most countries, to be seen as a strong advice.

Of course you all seem to think it's just fine and dandy for the US of A and it's military industrial complex to have a heap of bases crowding out areas they have no real legitimacy to be in..... It's the Western Pacific in the Asian Sphere of Influence images (5).jpeg

Err, have you forgotten that the British HMS Albion etc. is in the same area.?

There is much difference in building on unclaimed reefs and connect them to made an artificial island. It is a concern but within the legal context.
