What criteria? The present day criteria just made up by the ad-hoc tribunal? That is similar to someone coming to you to say there is a new ruling that confiscates your property and it now belongs to another. Would you accept that?
There were treaties in the past that acknowledged the South China Sea belong to China. Only in recent decades were they being disputed. Why then? Political reasons are most likely. This is not about right or wrong. This is about seizing territory and political power. China happens to be the victim and the US is wielding its clout in the international community and the media to gather massive attack against China. If you read the media, most do not mention the occupation of the disputed islands by Vietnam and the Philippines but hype up China's reclamation on non-disputed islands that belong to China. Most hyped up China's military activities but are silent about Japan trying to sell military weapons to ASEAN countries.
Majority ruling does not mean the right ruling. Justice does not depend on popularity. If there is no justice in the world, why have a world government? A world government without justice only aggravates the situation the world is facing now.
