MANILA - The tribunal handling the South China Sea arbitration case unilaterally initiated by the former Philippine government issued its final award on Tuesday, amid a global chorus that as the panel has no jurisdiction, its decision is naturally null and void.

A global chorus? What global chorus? Are you talking about a handful of African countries that China has done infrastructure projects for, and were basically told that if they wanted China's continued help, then they would agree with Beijing? Landlocked countries which never go anywhere near the South China Sea, except as crew members on foreign flagged vessels?

Do you even know what the actual ruling was? Or are you just acting as a mouthpiece of Beijing? The full ruling is over 1000 pages long, and has not been released yet. I, however, have read the preamble, the base decision. It states that the 9-dash line is invalid, that's it.

It states nothing about island sovereignty, or what belongs to who. It says that China has no scientific, FACTUAL basis for claiming the entirety of the South China Sea. The claim of "We saw it first" does not make it yours.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

The PCA's ruling on 12 July 2016 was biased and it violated Unclos' own provisions that it has no jurisdiction on matters pertaining to sovereignty and on compulsory arbitration pertaining to delimitation, already excluded by China in 2006, under Article 298. Therefore, the PCA's ruling is null and void.

China has the moral high ground and should ignore the ruling but extend a friendly hand to the Philippines to hold talks to resolve the disputes peacefully, to mutual satisfaction.

These binding Treaties confirm that the Nansha (Spratly) and Xisha (Paracel) islands belong to China without any shadow of a doubt (Shame on the Tribunal at the Hague for ignoring them):

1 In 1945 a defeated Japan pledged to honor the 1945 Postdam Declaration and the Terms of the 1943 Cairo Conference that Japan returned all territories stolen from China, through ‘greed and violence.’

2 Japan returned Formosa, the Pescadores and appertaining islands as well as the Spratly and Paracel islands back to the Republic of China, on 28 April 1952, under the Treaty of Peace, by extension to China under the one-China policy, recognized by all 10 Asean nations, the US, Russia, Japan, both Koreas, NZ and Australia.

3 The 1898 Treaty of Paris, the 1900 Treaty of Washington and the 1930 Convention between the United States and Great Britain, all described the western limit of the Philippine territory as 118 degrees East longitude.

4 China’s  Nansha (Spratly), Xisha(Paracel), Dongsha (Pratas) and Zhongsha islands, which include the Macclesfield bank and Huangyan Dao (Scarborough shoal) are all due West of that 118 degrees East longitude.

Interesting tribunal panel result. Interestingly such tribunal proceeding was orchestrated by American govt, whom has never been a member of UNCLOS, to back Philippine. Interestingly, when the result was announced, America instantly become the good fella by issuing calmness and cool head required in this region in order to avoid escalation of tension. Such display of US govt indeed is misleading knowing that there were political backstabbing used in twitching the end result so as to ensure US gets their way to gain their rights in sea lane and rights to navigate their warship anywhere within the South China Sea even without committing the nation as part of UNCLOS.
To be fair, China should review options to resign as UNCLOS member and draw ADIZ immediately to stand head-to-head and shoulder-to-shoulder with American ego.

Let me think. Some Filippina corrupt crony comes whining to Tulip land with an issue. There comes the situation to appoint 5 authorities by Japan and then hand out 500 page report based on what Pentagon and CIA wanted. Old Hillary wants Asian Pivot -- stop it now. Best to get Russia and make heat for Japan. According to Hague ---Russia has NO Peace Treaty with Japan following WWII --the big one. Don't get mad----get even.

USA is the problem and has been problem in South China Sea, Vietnam, Korea and stirring up trouble in Hong Kong and Taiwan. It is on the prowl the world over converting things to fit the narrow minded bigoted and stupid clowns running CIA and Pentagon. NATO is another puppet but financed 85% by USA to start war with Baltics against Russia. Auschwitz was liberated by Russians Jan 26 1945 but USA media has the sheeple believing that China and Russia are its enemies while Nazi Germany- Dalai Lama --and Ukraine and Japan are the good guys. The USA is so full on lies and deceit that it fits the first couple of Chapters of the Book of Job and we meet satan and his job is walking up and down the earth ----------is a liar and murderer from the beginning and USA is doing his bidding today....
