As a Filipino, how would you feel waking up to the headlines below?

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying has released this statement following the recent conclusion of the Permanent Court of Arbitration's—in The Hague, the Netherlands—hearing on issues of West Philippine Sea jurisdiction and admissibility:

Go back over those boldfaced parts. Do it again. In a scale of one to 10, 10 being the angriest, how angry are you after reading them? We're all the way at 11!

To those lazy enough not to read the whole thing, here is the statement's three-point lowdown

-  China has never been and will never be open to any third-party settlement disregarding its legitimate rights to the West Philippine Sea.

-  It's simply holding back from making a move—whatever the hell it is that they're referring to—considering the peace.

-  And finally, it is the "victim" (You read that right) in this whole predicament.

To all of these we could only muster: REALLY, CHINA?


Really, China
?! After your coast guard ships water-cannoned some of our innocent fishermen out of the Scarborough Shoal early last year? After the many instances since 2013 wherein Chinese vessels stymied us or turned us away from the West Philippine Sea? You're the "victim"? Really?!

Really, China?! After you deemed that water cannons weren't enough to ostracize us so one of your ships rammed three more fishing boats last February? That for you is "restraint"? Really?!

Really, China?! After one of your Navy frigates drove away a Philippine Air Force (PAF) on patrol from the Subi (Zamora) Reef last April? After that incident was followed by a series of subsequent harassments on our planes? Is that what you call upholding "regional peace"? Really?!

Really, China?! After you repeatedly stalled several resupply missions to our Philippine troops stationed at BRP Sierra Madre, that rusty naval ship grounded at Ayungin Shoal? Really?!

Really, China?! After numerous cases of Chinese locals engaging in illegal fishing of endangered marine species? After those nine fishermen who were caught poaching giant sea turtles in one of the disputed shoals last year were also released from jail recently? Really?!

Really China?! After all that blatant bullying, you're still the "victim" in this whole predicament? And that we have to be thankful that you're still "exercising your utmost restraint"? Really?!


Just. Wow. *shakes head*
