A westerner friend of mine recently applauded the decision to rule in favour of Philippine and claim that Chinese greed and craftiness to use bilateral talks instead of defending its claim in the tribunal court clearly showed sin being committed yet trying to conceal them.
I trust he is merely not just one of the westerner people that voice similar melody but not surprisingly the numbers should be far alarming.
Many of these westerners have no basis of deep understanding of the Chinese culture and the historical facts how our ancestors built the pot of resources for us. The media hype is the only source of information that binded their view and I explained that no westerners would want to see a strong china but one that could still be contained and managed. Because Asians had been colonized historically by westerners and that perception runs deep. Philippine was colonized by American before. And if they still  harbour favour to US govt that they can't stand on their own feet and require 24/7 service by US government, the nation will always be at their mercy and resolving the South China Sea issue would come harder. Steer away from being Americanized and work with Asian neighbours to propel and lift Philippine line of poverty would be more sensible.
