AMSTERDAM-NOIR- (ANTIMEDIA)’Mad Dog Trump’ is net zo gevaarlijk als Oorlog’s misdadiger ‘TTIP Obama’(Video).
South China Sea — Adding fuel to an already highly combustible situation in Southeast Asia, Reuters reported Tuesday that China has “largely completed major construction of military infrastructure on artificial islands it has built in the South China Sea,” and that the Asian superpower “can now deploy combat planes and other military hardware there at any time.”Citing satellite imagery analyzed by the Asian Maritime Transparency Initiative, part of Washington, D.C.’s Center for Strategic and International Studies, the news agency writes that “work on Fiery Cross, Subi and Mischief Reefs in the Spratly Islands included naval, air, radar and defensive facilities.”

Sticking to the mainstream narrative that China is an aggressor in claiming sovereign rights to the majority of the South China Sea, Pentagon spokesman Commander Gary Ross says the new images confirm what the U.S. military already knows.China, as it has repeatedly, downplayed this notion and stuck to the position that it’s simply erecting defensive infrastructure within its own borders, as would any nation.“As for China deploying or not deploying necessary territorial defensive facilities on its own territory, this is a matter that is within the scope of Chinese sovereignty,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a press briefing Tuesday.Despite comments such as these — and the very real fact that China hasn’t actually invaded anyone — the corporate media jumped on the news of the new images.

  1. beet je raar toch de history van china gaat aantoonbaar 2000 jaar terug wat betreft de zuid chineese zee en dus ook de spratly islands. Deze eilanden groep werd gebruikt door chineese vissers die hier de nacht nog wel eens doorbrachten en als er dan een piet piraat komt met de naam thomas cloma 1956, het eiland opstapt en eventjes roept “is hier iemand? nee? mooi dan is dit nu van mij” gaat natuurlijk niet werken.

    in deze tijd stapte in deze regionen ook iemand rond die maar wat graag zn keuninklijke snikkeltje uit de pantalon liet hangen met alle gevolgen van dien.

    The Philippine assertion of sovereignty over the Spratly Islands began in May 1956, when Tomas Cloma, owner of a Philippine fishing vessel company, and director of the Philippine Maritime Institute, declared the founding of the new municipality called “Kalayaan” (English: Freedom).

    He “found” the islands while he, with his brothers and 40 crew, were “adventuring” in the South China Sea. Observing that there was no human settlement, nor national flag, present on them, he decided to establish the Kalayaan municipality. He posted a document in English, entitled Notice to the Whole World, on all features he claimed. His claim comprises about fifty features among the Spratly group.[4] In September 1956, after the Republic of China occupied the largest island, Ligao Island (Itu Aba), Cloma decided to cede and sell all the territories of his state to the Philippines for one peso (US$0.50 of the time).[citation needed] Cloma wrote to Carlos Garcia, then Philippine Vice President and Foreign Minister, asserting that his claim was based on “discovery and occupation”. Garcia replied that judging from the point of “occupation” and “proximity”, there were no reasons for these islands and reefs not to be under Philippine jurisdiction.[5]

    The Philippine government incorporated the Kalayaan group into Palawan Province as a municipality in April 1972, and claimed in 1974 that “Its location rendered it strategically important to Philippine national security”.[6] In 1978, the Philippine Presidential Decree No. 1599 was based on the fact that Kalayaan is within the Philippine 200-mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ).[7] The Philippine claim extends over an area of 70,150 sq. nm.[8]
