How strong are China's claims to the South China Sea?

Jul 2009
China didn't "win" any of the major points, it couldn't have because China didn't even participate. The arbitration simply refused to back Philippine's proposals on sovereignty, that doesn't automatically mean it backs those of China's. China rejected the Arbitration before it even began, and proposed bilateral negotiation as opposed to Arbitration. So who's baiting?
Well then I take it all back :D. And don't deal through a broker. Buy mutual funds directly. :)
