I wonder why there are now an increase of Chinese prostitutes in the Philippines. They come in cheaper in Manila, Cebu and some parts of Luzon.

Side note: Philippines voted for the Palestinians at the UN, against US wishes.

It looks more like the Philippines is bullying China by rejecting its passport whose map merely reflected its sovereign territory.  

The Philippines has never proven its legitimate sovereignty over Huangyan.

Pretending to feel hurt over not having what it does not own does not establish real ownership.

- the area is disputed - no question about that
- disputed area maps do not belong in passports, since it is a provocation to other claimants
- the Philippines has given historical and legal reasons for their claim countless times
- China refused several times to bring the whole case up to to The International Court of the Sea

- China wants to take her claim with military force !
- because of that the Philippines is seeking help from other nations, because of it's weak military capacity


It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

Are there no more normal people with a sane attitude in mainland China ?

Yes... and they do not frequent the China Daily BBS Forums... or at least the English speaking sections.

The Philippines said Wednesday it would refuse to stamp Chinese passports containing a map showing most of the China South Sea as belonging to China. The Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that immigration personnel would stamp "a separate visa application form" instead of the Chinese passport. "Through this action, the Philippines reinforces its protest against China's excessive claim over almost the entire South China Sea," the department said.


{shrug} Better a protest like this instead of the folks in Manila saying they want to invest in a Nuclear Weapons program... like some of the rumblings out of Japan and Taiwan over the years.

We are at the start of a new "cold war", this time around in Asia, I am afraid.

Yeah the best way to start a giant Asian Free Trade Zone is to start boycotting among members !
