If Taiping Island that can support life on its own, is always above the high tide, and has its own source of fresh water, and can grow its own food, is NOT an Island, according to the PCA, then we can SAFELY SAY that the entire Philippine archipelago and that of Japan are mere collections of rocks, and are not islands either, all of which do not enjoy any sovereign territorial sea of 12 nautical miles from their coasts, and needless to say, have no EEZ of 200 miles to speak of.

Time for China to send a thousand ships through these rocks under the Freedom of Navigation principle.

Starting TODAY!!!

That's what I thought.

The Philippines consist of more than 7,000 islands, only 100 of which are inhabited by Filipinos.
If Taiping Island -- which is larger than most of islands in the Philippines -- is just a "rock" ,
then that means most of the 7,000 islands of the Philippines are mere "rocks" -- not islands.

The Chinese Navy can now sail through those "rocks" without the consent of the Philippines.

The problem is, China is too peaceful to do that.  But now, since it is a free for all, China should claim its share of the high seas between the rocks of the Philippines, including especially those in the Sea of Japan, and the Pacific Ocean.

HERE WE COME!!!

THE SPIRIT OF ZHENG HE HAS AWAKENED!!!

CHINA SHOULD FIND A VERY GOOD USE FOR ITS "OVERCAPACITY OF STEEL PRODUCTION" IN BUILDING TEN THOUSAND SHIPS TO EXERCISE ITS FREEDOM OF NAVIGATION BETWEEN ALL THESE ROCKS IN THE PHILIPPINES, THE SEA OF JAPAN, AND THE BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS PACIFIC OCEAN!

NO MORE UNFAIR ACCUSATIONS OF DUMPING!

NO MORE WEAKNESS OF CONSUMPTION!

NO MORE OVERCAPACITY OF PRODUCTION!

NO MORE CAPITAL FLIGHT OR SPECULATIVE BUBBLES . . . THE SPEAR OF ZHENG HE SHALL BE FORGED IN THE CRUCIBLE OF NATIONAL HONOR AND SELF-DEFENSE.
