    china illegally built those artificial island which is clearly part of Philippine territory. a gross disrespect of international law. their nine-dash-line claim is baseless, purely nonsense and a monument of their opportunism.

    +玉佳瓏 wrong, China had invaded Vietnam countless times over the span of 4000 years. But the Vietnamese was tough, they always fought back. If you look at the Chinese, .most of them are greedy, all they care are money and properties
