The ruling of International Court ( Permanent Court of Arbitration – PCA ) at The Hague that China has no historic title over the South China Sea is a huge win to Philippines. Chinese attitude of bulldozing small nations around its borders is not new. India is also a victim of this thuggery and due to the knee jerk attitude of our political leaders, was forced to swallow the defeat. At least now, we have a government which is capable of garnering international support and also stand up to this bully. International community particularly, the littoral states are eagerly waiting for China’s next move.
