In view of the recent landmark decision coming from the Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), I am reblogging Justice Antonio Carpio’s article way back in June 2014. Justice Carpio is one of our strongest advocates for the protection of Philippine territorial sovereignty, particularly the West Philippine Seas. Please click on the piece:
Carpio: China’s Invasion is Armed Aggression
Yes, it is disgraceful bullying of a smaller, more peaceful neighbour. They had all the practice, of course, on poor old Tibet. Occupied by the Chinese military for sixty years now. Everybody should abide by the decisions made by the court in the Hague.

I don’t understand why they are pushing it militarily. I mean they own US debt and US has billions in trade deficit. Seems they would not challenge US and its allies. They profit from friendship.
Let’s hope the wiser heads prevail over there.
