China simply should go the legal and peaceful way to assert her claim.
No need to use or to threa ...
Ng Tran, the only legal framework that exists for adjudication of matters of sovereignty is a body that is acceptable to both parties, which effectively excludes ITLOS as its judicial panel is subject to political influence by third parties. The UNCLOS excludes matters of sovereignty by its own articles. The Philippines is trying to steal Huangyan, and the Spratly islands, under the cover of legality, knowing it has the jury stacked up in its favor. China has the right to reject such a jury however. So stop pretending you are not stealing sovereign territories of China by appealing to a stacked and partial court system that you know your foreign patrons can influence to your benefit. This is hypocrisy for a "Christian nation". Rather, the Philippines should engage China in a business deal where it can benefit from the exploitation of the natural resources in these Chinese territories, under generous conditions. Even this, NgTran, is already very difficult, given how the pro-democracy advocates have soured Chinese opinion against the Philippines due to the unintentional but nevertheless unsavory bungling of the hostage situation several years ago in which eight Hong Kong residents were killed by a renegade Filipino policeman. Your foreign backers have actually made it very difficult for China to grant your private investors generous terms in the exploitation of its sovereign territories that you thought belonged to you but did not. Recent Vietnamese attacks on Chinese factories in Vietnam have also made economic concessions by China much more difficult. Add to this the fact that some SOEs officials probably abraided the pride of neighboring countries in the hope of inflaming border conflicts that distract the Central Government from investigating their corruption. There are many obstacles to peace, including from your own foreign-backed kibitzers who insist, against historical reality, that the Spratly islands belong to the Philippines, who even appear "very patriotic" to your government. Beware these Yes-men whose loyalty belongs elsewhere. Check on their foreign assets.
