A NEUTRAL ASSESSMENT OF ALL THE FACTS (WHICH WE ARE NOT SHOWN IN WESTERN MEDIA) ACTUALLY PROVES THAT CHINA DOES IN FACT HAVE THE MOST VALID HISTORICAL CLAIM TO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA

CHECK OUT THE SENSATIONALIST HEADLINES FED TO US:

South China Sea: Satellite images appear to show weapons systems on artificial islands

Updated about 4 hours ago
China appears to have installed weapons, including anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems, on all seven of the artificial islands it has built in the South China Sea, a US think tank says, citing new satellite imagery.













JUST LOOK AT THE RECENT ANTI CHINA HEADLINES ABOVE, THE AGENDA IS TO PORTRAY CHINA AS THE 'WAR-MONGERING AGGRESSOR' IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, BUT WHICH COUNTRY HAS INVADED OTHER COUNTRIES NOT LESS THAN ONCE EVERY DECADE FOR THE LAST CENTURY? IT WAS THE USA - NOT CHINA!   

ACTUALLY ......as it turns out CHINA does actually have THE most valid historical claim to the South China Sea...and this is what William Johnson (retired U.S Air Force Officer and retired Foreign Service Offer reveals...not some 'pro-China propagandist')....so don't believer the anti-China version you are being conditioned to believe in nightly western media news broadcasts:
China's claim to the South China Sea is based on HISTORY - dating back to records (of what was viewed as Chinese territory) from the Xia Dynasty (c. 2070 – c. 1600 BC) GOING BACK OVER 4,000 YEARS!
In more recent times, the nine-dash line that was advanced by Chiang Kai Shek in 1947. During this pre-communist Republican era China mapped, surveyed and named 291 islands and reefs in the region.
The United States contends that the South China Sea is International water, and sovereignty in the area should be determined by the United Nations Convention on Laws of the Sea (UNCLOS).
UNCLOS states that countries cannot claim sovereignty over any land masses that are submerged at high tide, or that were previously submerged but have been raised above high tide level by construction.
The floor of the South China Sea may contain massive oil and natural gas reserves. Sovereignty over the region could give China (the worlds most populous country) a level of ENERGY SECURITY and ENERGY INDEPENDENCE far beyond what it currently possesses.
(Damon Corrie asks - Is this not in China's legitimate 'National best interests'? Or is that a mandate/patriotic excuse only permitted to predominantly white countries?)
Who has built what? Island building in the South China Sea, and construction on existing islands, has been going on for decades, primarily by Vietnam (on 21 islands) and the Philippines (on 8 islands). Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines have all stationed military forces on at least some of their islands.
Vietnam has fortified several islands with rocket artillery launchers capable of striking China's holdings across the region, and it has also begun dredging work on the disputed 'Ladd Reef' (yet curiously this fact has NOT been reported in the media which gives us the impression of 'unilateral Chinese aggression' ad-nasuem).
China has in fact come late to the island building game, BUT China's efforts have been on a scale never before seen in the region.
China has added more than 3,20 acres (1,300 hectares) of land on seven different features in the South China Sea - and built runways, ports, aircraft hangers and communications facilities according to U.S estimates from satellite imagery.
What is the U.S response to the dispute?
The Unites States had virtually NO response to the previous building done by Vietnam and the Philippines OR ANY OTHER NATION in the South China Sea, but has vigorously OPPOSED all China's efforts....and the USA has stated "It will use it's aircraft and naval vessels to 'assert freedom' of navigation in the region' as demonstrated by by the 2015 passage of the USS Forth Worth Combat ship, and the flight by a U.S navy P-8 Poseidon surveillance aircraft OVER the Chinese construction at Fiery Reef.
Beyond 'freedom of navigation' missions, the United States is focused on strengthening regional allies. To do so it will help boost it's allies intelligence gathering (against China) and surveillance capabilities (against China), and provide them with updated military hardware to counter China's technical advantages in both quantity and quality.

(Damon Corrie asks - so who is really provoking whom in this ever escalating scenario? China? or the USA? Ask yourself that now that you have ALL the facts).
