The disputed waters of South China Sea and how China just refused an international court ruling, will lead us to World War III.
The Philippines filed an order against China regarding the South China Sea and the disputed waters. The Hague ruled heavily in favor of the Philippines and ordered China to scale down its military presence as well as relinquish control of the waters.
The Peoples republic of China has made it clear that they will not recognize nor follow the court ruling over the South China Sea.
“The Chinese government and the Chinese people firmly oppose and will neither acknowledge it nor accept it.”
The communist Leader of the Peoples Republic of China, Xi Jinping, stated, “territorial sovereignty and marine rights’ in the seas will not be affected.”
The Philippines filed a 15 – point petition to invalidate China’s military grip over the South China Sea, in The Hague Tribunal for international laws. While the ruling is legally binding, there is NO WAY to enforce it and ensure China complies with the ruling.
The ruling was unanimously in favor of the Philippines and it sent a wave of fear through those involved with the South China Sea. They fear how China will respond to the such a ruling against them and have asked that other nations remain sober and show restraint at this time.
John Kirby, the State Department Spokesman had the following statement to the media, “The world is watching to see if China is really the global power it professes itself to be and the responsible power that it professes itself to be.”
In a single statement, China has proclaimed to the world that they are not afraid of the United States Fleets nor will the comply with demands against them.
“China would not back down from its activities in the South China Sea even in the face of a fleet of American aircraft carriers.”
The importance over the South China Sea is the value of resources as well as control over the shipping routes. The estimated value of fishing, oil and mineral alone is estimated to be in the trillions and the shipping routes ship billions of dollars in goods through the South China Sea every year.
This has been an ongoing issue for a few years now and China never blinked an eye nor slowed its production of building strategic islands throughout the South China Sea. China has finished construction of its islands and has military equipment, including SAM’s systems.
The world is watching in the days to come to see exactly how China responds to losing face across the international communities. Most believe that China will respond by escalating its military forces and fleets in the region.
“So there will be huge pressures on Beijing to respond, to save face, to demonstrate with more than just words that it doesn’t abide by and doesn’t credit the ruling with any legal validity and will not adhere to it and will defend its ‘sovereign space’ in the South China Sea.”
What all of this means is simple, an international court has instructed China to release its hold over the South China Sea and begin to remove military equipment on the islands. China knows there is no way to enforce the ruling and nor do they have any intention of doing so. They know that the U.S. will respond by increasing our military presence and attempt to intimidate the Chinese into following the ruling.
Now why does this sound familiar? Another nation claims territory of significant value that is rich with minerals and oil, NATO courts rule against the nation and the U.S. is instructed to put military pressure on the nation to comply. Here is the elephant in the room so to speak, China is a world super power and they are not only unafraid of NATO and the U.S., China is publicly taunting them to dare to enforce the ruling.
The significance of the region and the extensive value of the region, have nations in dispute and now a legally binding court order against China. China will never follow or back down from the region and the smaller nations will file more petitions, such as the Philippines and Vietnam. The U.S. will send more fleets to the area in response, ultimately leading to a standoff with the Chinese.
The tensions are explosive in the South China Sea and other nations are watching and drooling over the situation. China is slapping the U.S. in the face and the world is watching for our response as well, make no mistake about it. This has all the makings of a global conflict and the U.S. finds itself in a position where we have no choice but to enforce the ruling even though we know China will never back down.
Americans are too distracted by racism, Domestic Terrorist groups assassination our Police Officers and Islamic terrorists. The American people do not realize the very thin line that has currently been drawn by the international court.
We do not want to go to war with China or anyone else for that matter, especially over mineral rights and oil yet again. History does repeat itself and it seems we find ourselves in troubling times and every direction you look, it seems as if war is inevitable and our futures uncertain.
Stay vigilant, stay frosty and stay aware. I urge you all to follow this crisis and let go of mainstream media propaganda. The truth and blunt reality is what matters.
