Even your close friend Malaysia you have now pissed off.

This fellow was intentionally being undiplomatic in sending his message through Twitter.  Just like the captain of the Chinese ship needs to be courtmartialled for acting as an agent provocateur for a foreign power at the expense of China's image, this Malaysian fellow needs to be investigated as to links with foreign powers for playing up this provocation into a public denunciation of China, which from a diplomatic standpoint, is a violation of what is basic diplomatic etiquette, at the expense of the image of Malaysia.

Two wrongs don't make a right - neither China nor Malaysia stand to gain anything at all from the actions of these two persons acting like Agents Provocateurs - which proves that there is NO FUNDAMENTAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST BETWEEN MALAYSIA AND CHINA AT ALL.

The road to peace and prosperity is actually far easier to navigate than the road to perdition and penury.  It is so easy, one wonders why some people make it sound so hard.  Just read . . . how the Philippines came to claim the Spratly Islands as belonging to its sovereignty . . . there are no ancient hieroglyphics to unravel, or tomes of documents to reference.  There was simply Mr. Tomas Cloma and his claim to have discovered the Spratly Islands before anyone else had, which he took for his own.  And, it was a mistake, no doubt about it, whether intentional or unintentional.  That is the whole basis of the Philippine claim of sovereignty over the Spratly Islands,  And, it is false.  Therefore, the Philippines has NOTHING TO LOSE by acknowledging this fact, going forward in negotiating with China how the two countries can share in the marine and mineral resources of these islands, some of which technically are within the EEZ of the Philippines and also within the EEZ of China (based on the many islands that belong to her in the South China Sea).  

The question of sovereignty is not a matter of pride, but a matter of fact, and pride should not stand in the way of factual truth, period.  There is nothing outrageous about China's insistence that bilateral talks should be based on the sovereignty of China over the Spratly Islands, to which China has voluminous documentation.  The good news is, in spite of her having sovereignty over these islands, China is ready to negotiate with the Philippines regarding the sharing of the marine resources of their overlapping EEZ's. This is one bird in hand that the Philippines would not want to trade for 2 in the bush.

If somebody owns something or has sovereignity over something is also depending on the recognition of third parties. That is why China is so keen that no other country will recognise Taiwan diplomatically.
In the case of China's u-shaped claim you should tell the audiance here who in the world is supporting China.

Wrong again!  Sovereignty does not depend on third parties opinions.  If you have the historical documents showing your sovereignty over an island, it is the other claimants who have to produce evidence of their ownership.  But appealing to general principles cannot help the Philippine position, because the only "evidence" the Philippines has of its ownership of Pagasa and the Spratly Islands is the belated, and ridiculous, claim of Mr. Tomas that he first "discovered" those islands in 1956, that had already been the subject of international treaties, with official ceremonies of Japan turning over the Spratly Islands that it stole from China in WWII, back to the Republic of China in 1946.

That is the ONLY basis for the Philippine claim of sovereignty over the Spratly Islands, which is unpresentable, and thus, the HIGHFALUTING APPEAL TO UNCLOS, ITLOS, CODE OF CONDUCT, ET CETERA, to hide what amounts to ABSENCE OF ANY VALID CLAIM OF SOVEREIGNTY over the Spratly Islands is a joke, were it not also so embarrassing and grievous.

If you are not embarrassed at your antics, and plain OFFICIAL DISHONESTY, well we are embarrassed for you.  Go to your confessional Ng Tran, do some penance, and come back to talk about sharing the resources, not about splitting or shelving China's indisputable sovereignty over these islands.  THIEVERY by fraud and then by bribing your "International Policeman" to enforce your baseless claim of soveriegnty with INTIMIDATION will not work on China.  In fact, it makes any future sharing of these resources less and less probable, until one day, after you have gambled away even your credibility, not just your friendship, there will be nothing left to share.
