It is such common sense it doesn't need to be a rule.

Clearly Chinese lack the common sense gene, ...

History lesson for you:
The earliest discovery by the Chinese people of the Nansha Islands can be traced back to as early as the Han Dynasty. Yang Fu of the East Han Dynasty (23-220 A.D.) made reference to the Nansha Islands in his book entitled Yiwu Zhi Records of Rarities.

Earliest Vietnamese reference to the said islands were in the 17th Century. A 10th Century Cambodian Empire mentions them. The French "claimed" them in 1933. So you see? Everyone else is out of luck sorry to say.
Generous treatment of captured enemy troops.
Death to those that choose to fight.

China's ancient texts are extremely vague and cannot be taken as evidence of these islands. You co ...

History lesson no.2:
In numerous history and geography books published in the Tang and Song Dynasties, the Nansha and Xisha Islands were called Jiuruluo Islands, Shitang (literally meaning atolls surrounding a lagoon), Changsha (literally meaning long ranges of shoals), Qianli Shitang, Qianli Changsha, Wanli Shitang, and Wanli Changsha among others. Reference was made to the Nansha Islands in over one hundred categories of books published in the four dynasties of Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing in the name of Shitang or Changsha.

So if it's the last 1000 years of historical fact you want, then you have it right in front of you.

History lesson no.3:
The Philippines claims over about 60 islands, reefs, and submerged banks in the Spratly Islands. The first assertion was made in 1947 by Tomás Cloma, a Philippine citizen, when he claimed to have discovered a group of islands and reefs 300 nautical miles to the west of Palawan Island.

As you can see, the Philippines claim to the islands borders on the insane. But Filipinos are usually fun loving people, so this could be just a joke. I'm laughing.

More made up history from fake scholars being bought by the CCP and based in Beijing?

You know wh ...

Contrary to what you say, China is not claiming the whole world but only what lies within it's territorial waters of the South China Sea. Admiral Zheng He did have the whole world mapped before Columbus, Magellan, Van Dieman, Capt Cook, Capt Faveaux, Sir Francis Drake, and every other amazing western explorer. Having invented the compass, it was not hard to have an accurate map of the world.
