The Chinese redefine the 'takeaway' menu.
If President Duterte didn't have enough problems already, he has to suffer the additional headache of trying to resolve issues involving the occupation by the Chinese of
islands in the South China. The Scarborough Shoal aside, the Spratley Islands appear to be of greater interest to the Chinese.
The Chinese are not exactly stranger to the acquisition of other countries claimed property. They took control of Tibet in 1950 and have shown no desire to give it back it's
independence. Not that the status of Tibet has ever been clear. But they have claimed independence since 1913.
President Duterte should perhaps try to learn from this dispute and try to understand exactly how the Chinese feel about claiming other people's 'property'
