I can't help but be astonished at perceived Chinese arrogance regarding "historical" claims to islands that a far closer to other countries than they are to China, mainland or otherwise. It's not about history I think, it's about greed....oil and natural gas.

When one goes through the web, it is not difficult to find comments written by web viewers and readers in Japan and most of western countries expressing support for Philippines to illegally occupy the island belonging to China.  From the ways they express their opinion, it is no surprise to note that these web commentators have the same kind of mentality as the Western politicians, particularly from the US.   Their sense of righteousness is zero and thus no body can expect them to talk with sense and reasons.  Their points of argument do not justify on behalf of Philippines the rights to occupy something that legally does not belong to them.

At this instance, I wish to elaborate to them by telling them a simple story and see whether they can understand it.

A rich man had a lot of houses some of which were inherited from his ancestors.  The houses were situated in various different places over a large area.  He had documentary proof to verify his ownership of all the houses.   However, most of the houses far from where he stayed were left vacant.  One day, one of his children went to one of the far away houses to do some gardening and at that moment, a man staying near by suddenly tried to kidnap him.   However, when the rich man noticed it, he quickly sent some guards  to the place to stop the kidnapping.  That man became furious and argued that  the house was vacant for a long time and was not occupied by anybody.  Since he stayed nearest to the house, he therefore had the right to take possession of the house and therefore he was then the rightful owner.  When the rich man noticed that this man had made a claim, an outrageous claim on his house, he told the man that house was legally his property and he had proof to substantiate it.   However, that man refused to listen and admit it even though he knew very well he himself never owned that house.   His only point of argument was that that vacant house was near to his house.   Therefore he had more rights than any body to claim ownership of that house.  

On a hypothetical case, assuming that this man had bought a house hundreds of km from where he stayed and the house was left vacant for a long time.  One day, a house owner near by took possession of his house and argued strongly with him that that house actually belonged to him because it was left vacant and was nearest to his house.  Will he accept such an argument?  Definitely not unless he is out of his mind.

Back to the same story again - Despite the fact that it was an outrageous claim made by that man, the rich man was kind enough to try to help this poor man and then made a proposal to him and said that though he was the legal owner, he was prepared to share with him to jointly renovate that house and then share the rental income.  However, this poor man though he had acquainted a far distant gangster head who told him that he could give him protection whatever he did.  The condition was that he had to buy some arms from him.  Without consideration and hesitation, he agreed to his condition because he felt that the rental income from the illegally occupied house could make him affordable to pay for the purchase of the arms.  Therefore he stood firm on his stand and refused to accept the rich man’s proposal but continued to illegally occupy that house and openly claimed it to be his.   This was because his gangster head friend said he could recommend someone to help him renovate the house and then share with him on the rental income.

From the above story, it is clear that if that man was just and righteously minded, he should have considered himself lucky that the rightful owner of the house had agreed to jointly renovate the house  and then share the rental income with him because to him, this was like a gift from the sky.  The most important thing of all was that if he accepted that proposal, he would have some constant income from the share of the rental without the worry of facing  any hassle or problem.   Though he noticed it that if accepted the idea put forward by his gangster head friend, he would not be able to enjoy the rental income  free of problem, but he still insisted on that outrageous stand.  

Obviously the reasons behind his option are –
Firstly, being personally envious and jealous of the wealth of this rich man, out of no human logical reason, he generates a feeling of hatred against him. This only reflects the inferior part of the intrinsic human nature that he possesses.   Secondly, he understands that this rich man is a very kind, moderate, helpful and tolerant person and will never be a bully and therefore he has no worry of being beaten.  And thirdly, because of instigation by his gangster head friend whose legs he himself is so anxious to embrace, he therefore chooses to obey his instruction and to become nasty and adopt a very disgusting attitude towards the rich man.

Therefore if he is punished for his nuisance, will any body with normal human sense say that he does not deserve it?  If yes, there is only one answer and that is they are of the same category.

On the issue of islands dispute in the South China Sea, I have the following observation on the various facts which I would like to share with other web viewers or readers:-

The Facts –

Fact No 1 – Owning a piece of land or an island is determined by internationally recognized laws and that is whoever first discovered the land or the island with written description of some true events happening in the related land or island involving the nationals of that country and with maps all written and contained in their old history books, whoever is the rightful owner.  These history books must be written in the olden days and found not only in the libraries of the country which claims to own the related land or island but also in the commonly recognized international storage libraries in one of the western countries.   History books written by other country after the date of claim by the first original  country with obvious intention to amend the history are not recognized and acceptable.  Whether or not the land or island is occupied or left vacant for a long time does not change its legitimate ownership.  Its ownership is also not determined by the distant between the related land or island and the owner country. These internationally recognized laws supersede the 200 nautical miles economic zone of any country

Comparatively, a person can purchase and own a house hundreds or even thousands km away from where he stays.  Its vacancy for months or years or even decades does not give its neighboring house owners the right to claim ownership of the related house.  This is also an internationally recognized law.

Fact No 2 – the above related laws are equally and fairly applicable to any one concerned without any prejudice whatsoever.   Therefore they are commonly recognized laws which every righteously minded person has to accept otherwise he must be a robber.

Fact No 3 – Should any third party dare to intrude into the territory of a land or an island wherever they may be situated which are legitimately owned by a Super Power other than China without any concrete evidence recognized and testified by international laws, it will be looked upon as a blatant provocation.   As such, the Super Power concerned will not tolerate the way that China does and will instead give direct and clear stern warning to the intruder concerned that within 24-48 hours, they have to vacate from the land or island concerned failing which strong action will be taken against them without compromise and without hesitation.  They will not waste time negotiating with the illegal claimant in the way that China does.  Neither will they recognize that there are disputes in the related land or island.   Joint operation proposal can never be in their consideration.  

Fact No 4 – China has stressed again and again that they are a peace loving nation and they have proven it not only by words of mouth but also by actions.   All righteously minded persons in the world who have fairly followed the news can witness and recognize this.  China has all along been playing a constructive role in disputes between various conflicting factions in different parts of the world and always calls on the related parties concerned to settle their disputes through discussion and negotiation  no matter how harsh the situation may be.  As such, when China themselves are facing with similar disputes with its neighboring countries over territory matters, China has insistently maintained the usual conviction to try to settle it in a friendly and cordial manner and that is through frank two ways discussion.  To do that, China has even proposed to the illegal claimants to set aside the disputes and have joint operation in developing it.  It can never be imagined that this kind of proposal can be put forward if the islands owner is another Super Power.  By right, these illegal claimants ought to have considered themselves very lucky that China is willing to have joint operation with them to develop it because after all, they still need partner with high skill technology in the related development project.   However, because they are instigated to deliberately cause the trouble partly out of their own stupid and arrogant willingness and partly under political pressure and are therefore taught and forced by the Super Power to obey instructions as to what they should do in dealing with their illegally occupied islands properties, they have therefore lost their right to uphold their dignity in dealing with their foreign affairs.  Thus, they choose not to have consensus with China to set aside the dispute and to develop the islands jointly with them but instead choose to violate the healthy and normal practices by acting like small rascals.   They believe that with strong backing behind,  they will securely get what they want.

Fact No 5 -  China has achieved marvelous achievement in all fields over the past 30 years but it didn’t happen by chance.  They have put in relentless efforts and struggles encountering all kinds of set-backs and defeats amidst their many successes.  They have reiterated many times even in open forums that they hope there is a peaceful surrounding environment so that they can concentrate on their development plans.  This in turn will also allow the surrounding regions to enjoy an equally peaceful environment so that they can also concentrate on their respective national development plans.

Fact No 6 – The US together with their allies are too envious and worried of the great accomplishment achieved by China with numerous areas already surpassing them.  Nevertheless, deep in their heart, they are convinced that China will not pose a real threat to their security unless they purposely inflict a war with them. The only threat that China may pose to the US is that their further achievement may lead to the US being left further behind if US does not make more effort to catch up. This kind of situation is only very normal and is bound to happen just like in sports.  Healthy competitions will only help all concerned to upgrade the overall standard of  the subject, sports or otherwise.  However, out of jealousy, worry and diffidence, US seems to have selected the unhealthy and non-gentleman practices by trying to retard China’s progress. As such, they try all kinds of dirty tactics even to the extent of destroying their own image as a world super power and a great and civilized nation with obvious intention to contain China.  To do this; first of all, they have to gang up nicely with China’s surrounding countries by applying political intimidation tactic and then instigate them to create a disturbing environment around China.  Their motive is definitely very obvious and that is to try to defeat China’s hope to have a peaceful surrounding environment.  At the same time, they are also making use of these trials to test how China can settle their disputes with the neighboring countries through patient dialogues and discussion despite being blatantly, outrageously and repeatedly provoked.  

Fact No 7 – There has been no country in the world in past history that practiced the kind of decent, modest, peace-loving, mild, tolerant, moderate and understanding policies like China does and again there seem to be not likely to have similar type of regime in the world even in future besides China.   The type of excellent and high virtue qualities that China portrays before the human world is something that is not easily done as imagined.   It requires high degree of self-cultivation, self-confidence, self-conviction and self-insistence coupled with understanding on the need to share the responsibility in continuously upgrading the virtue of human behavior in the human civilization process.   This is no easy task but China has proven it that it can be done.    It is China’s hope that more great nations can imitate or even emulate what they are doing so that the only world in which human live will become a better and more peaceful and secured place for all.

Fact No 8 – Based on the usual mentality of the West led by the US, it is hard to imagine  that they will change their attitudes and policy particularly towards China.  As such, the world has to be prepared for the worse that can happen if things are forced to the extreme.
