    Yeah, I know that, I already addressed it too. As the CFR pointed out, if the US cared about legitimacy, and not giving false perceptions, it would ratify it.

    That's not what I said. We, you and me Jack, have beat that horse to death in other threads and forums where I have posted such evidence and you just want to derail the topic of China's title and rights to the Spratly's, and your hypocrisy where Vietnam and Taiwan is concerned.

    You brought it up and no, we've never discussed it. So either put up or shut up.

    Not much else needs to be said but this.
