BEFORE COLUMBUS AND MAGELLAN, ZHENG HE WAS.

The rigging of a so-called Arbitral Tribunal is a worse miscarriage of justice than the frivolous claim of sovereignty the Philippiines made in regard to Pag-Asa Island as having been "discovered" by Tomas Cloma in 1956.  This PCA orgy of greed and hegemony takes the cake, and makes itself aN opprobrium among all self-respecting nations..  It is time to move on.  Aquino III is now just a memory, for better or for ill, he left his country with more problems than he solved.  He had done some good, which looks too little compared to what other good he could have done.  But who can fault him for relying on the fairy tale of a Tomas Cloma discovering the Spratly Islands in 1956, when so-called "experts" from some religious universities swear by their imaginary claims.  When finally, they discovered history was not on their side, they opted to reject history.  How can any chief executive function effectively and rationally when he is bound and gagged by fiction and farce wherever he turns.  He probably still believes in these stories, untrue as they may be.  One day, his followers will realize, China is really a very, very old country, and its people had been visiting the Philippines long before it was a Spanish colony, and if they discovered the hundreds of islands of the South China Sea, including Huangyan island, on their way to the Philippines, it isn't surprising. Rather, one should be surprised if they didn't, after five thousand years of existing as the world's largest country, up until the 20th Century.

It seems that Obama's Pivot to Asia ended up pivoting on the head of Aquino III, causing him heada ...

Duterte is much, much bigger than Aquino, Marcos, etc. put together. He wants to cut off the neo-colonial relationship between the Philippines and the USA. He just announced a ceasefire between the Philippine Military and the Maoist NPA. He also wants to pardon and consult with his former Professor Jose Maria Sison who is the founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines. Duterte knows that the Spratly Islands dispute is just a red herring used by Aquino to allow the return of the US Military to the Philippines, which is expressly prohibited by the Philippine Constitution after the Philippine Senate expelled the US Military in 1982.

Duterte got a problem,

I believe he'd rather deal with China directly and do a good thing for his people and Country.

But, he knows bloody well that his days would be numbered.

"They want this drama to drag on for some other reason we will never be able to fathom, but can only infer by their actions.  This is unusual."

The USA wants this drama to drag on to justify the return of the U.S. Military to the Philippines which is BANNED under the Philippine Constitution. Same bullsh-t, nothing unusual.
