For me, this has been an on-going issue worldwide. It's getting bigger and hotter :thumbup2:. This is an argument between 2 countries, Philippines and China. Philippine President even asked the help of US to get Scarborough Shoal as part of Philippine territory. I'm not sure what's with this island. Do you have any ideas about this? I'm wondering who really owns Scarborough Shoal. Is it really China or Philippines?

Correct, but the official in China don't want this issue send off to United Nations.

Last week the USSR North Carolina submarine arrived in Philippines inorder to protect that island.(most hightech submarine in the world and that can subsist in blue water for 25 years without recharging)

When you look at the map, the Scarborough Shoal is near in the Philippines but why the official in China claimed that this island is part of China.

Maybe because of its abundant natural resources?


I may not be alone on this one.. but some countries fight over this.

Do you think this arguement will lead into a WAR between the concerned countries?

I don't think so. If this argument will spark war.. they can just give the island and be done with it...

I mean thats what I would do...

Great, Galyn, but ONLY if the leader of that country thinks as you do. I would say, I dunno or I really can't tell...only time will tell.

But sadly they don't.. it seems China somehow stopped trading goods from the Philippines not sure about that though..


If that's the case.. it's a bit childish.

I could agree with you Galyn and I believe that Philippine economy will be affected by this. According to the news, Philippine President is currently looking for a prospective country that will substitute China and will accept some of their goods.

And that is just sad. China claims this island was even written on their history.. Claiming that it was part of their territory before the nautical or geographical miles matters.

The Philippine was once a territory of the USA. If these shoals were not specifically mentioned when the Philippines was granted independence maybe they are still ours? :whistle:

I wouldn't have any problem with that. :thumbsup:

In fact I do wish it was like that in the first place.

Does it really need a verbal declaration for a certain island to be a part of one county's teritory?
