    The Chinese should inform the world of this piece of information.

    while
    (An American force had landed on Itu Aba in November 1945 and discovered that the wartime Japanese garrison had departed. A French warship, the FR Chevreuil had landed a team on Itu Aba in October 1946, two months before the Tai-ping arrived.)[1]

    Very informative and accurate overview of the situation when it comes to the dynamics of international relations and global trends, yet just another example of fallacious and self-defeating US "exceptionalism" and prejudiced opinions of others, in this case China, when it came to ideology, culture, and self-reflection or lack thereof.

    With the large and inherent effects of international trade affecting domestic realities the world over, any discussion of international affairs without including domestic affairs is bound to be incomplete and lend itself to using prejudiced assumptions about self and others that obfuscate the real issues.

    There are several important points that warrant independent confirmation such as China's official switch from disagreeing to agreeing with some of the US' interpretations of UNCLOS.

    Becareful, I think PRC wasn't involved, and therefore do not recognised the treaty. (I think the treaty mentioned Diayou island to Japan or something.

    I could be wrong, so please don't take me to task on it.

    Another inconveient truth the western MSM never mention to their readers.

    Sometimes, omitting information delibrately to give a different view on a particular situation is as bad as lying about it.
