To uphold the UNCLOS and the RULE OF LAW, China must reluctantly accept the thankless job of being the POLICEMAN OF THE FAR EAST, and send a bill to the PCA and Philippines for violating Article 298 of UNCLOS and endangering the security, trade and peace and order of the South China Sea.  Not only was the Philippine claim of sovereignty baseless, as Tomas Cloma could not have discovered the Pag-Asa island of the Spratly Islands, but this island itself is more than 200 nautical miles away from the nearest coast of the Philippines, and does not belong to its EEZ as well, but the award by the PCA was irresponsible, as it had no authority to convene the arbitration, or make any awards.  Robbing Peter to pay Paul is still a violation of international law - in robbing Peter, to begin with.
