Here is a map of a shoal or little island. The red dot, which lies on the bottom is where the shoal resides and the big hunk of crap on the top is where China resides. According to Chinese ‘logic’ ie whimsy, this little shoal belongs to them.
The Chinese say that way back when, Chinese maps were drawn up which proved this island belonged to China. The problems with that are many but include:
– the PRC or China was not recognized as a country until 1973, so any maps before that time are useless. This is true because even if those maps were credible, which they probably are not, then any territory they proclaim to own belongs to some vanished Chinese dynasty.
– the Chinese have historically claimed to own most of the world, even in the 19th century they told English ambassadors that they were part of China’s minion-hood. – those maps looked like children drew them.
-those maps also show dragons and serpents lurking around the edges of the flat earth.
– the law states natural boundaries and proximity which determine ownership of land and common sense tells you that this land is not Chinese.
“BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Monday that coast guard ships had driven away two Philippine vessels which had tried to approach a shoal in the South China Sea in the latest flare-up of a long-running territorial dispute.
The Chinese ships were patrolling waters around Second Thomas Shoal, known in China as the Ren’ai reef, when they spotted the Philippine boats, carrying construction materials and Philippine flags, which left the area after being warned off, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said.
The incident happened on Sunday, he added.
Qin said that China had repeatedly demanded the Philippines remove a ship which had been grounded on the shoal in 1999, but that Manila had cited technical reasons for being unable to do so.
“This time, the Philippine side has attempted to start construction on the reef,” he told a daily news briefing. “The moves infringed China’s sovereignty.”
China had no choice but to respond to the Philippines’ moves, Qin added.
Manila ran aground an old transport ship on the reef in 1999 to mark its territory, and has stationed marines in abject conditions on the rusting ship.
China’s claims over islands, reefs and atolls in resource-rich waters off its south coast and to the east of mainland Southeast Asia have set it directly against Vietnam and the Philippines, while Brunei, Taiwan and Malaysia also lay claim to parts.”
