Shining patriotism of Vietnamese

09/07/2014


It was one of the contents that author Rafał Tomanski mentioned in an article published on July 4, 2014 in the newspaper Rzeczpospolita, one of Poland's major newspapers.
Author Rafał Tomanski wrote: Since the beginning of last May, China deployed illegally the oil rig Hai Duong 981 in the waters of Vietnam. Despite the protests from Vietnam and the international community, China continues to increase the number of drilling rigs, ships and aircrafts in the South China Sea... Besides, the “fighting for sovereignty” also spreads to the libraries, where both Vietnam and China at the same time find  older and more credible historical documents to assert sovereignty over the sea and islands.
Mr. Rafał Tomanski said that at the international conference on the East Sea with the theme The sovereignty over the Spratly and Paracel” took place in Warsaw (Poland) on July 3, the Vietnamese community in Poland sent two atlases published by Hansa-Ausgabe publishment of  West Germany in 1896, clearly stating China's southernmost limits in Hainan Island. It is expected that two atlases will be transferred in time to contribute further evidence to assert sovereignty of Vietnam over two Spratlys and Paracels.
“This is not the only activity of Vietnamese community in Poland. Since last May, there were two demonstrations made by Vietnamese community in front of the Chinese Embassy in Warsaw to protest China’s illegal placement of the oil rig HD 981 in waters of Vietnam. Moreover, the Vietnamese community there also donated 16.000USD to Vietnam in the effort of protecting the territorial waters”, the author write. Mr. Rafał Tomanski considered that through these actions have shown a shining patriotism and spirit of protecting the sovereignty of Vietnam. They have reason to express their love to the sea and islands of Vietnam because by far it has not yet known when China will pull the rig HD 981 out of Vietnam’s waters. Vietnam government does not lose temper and let themselves not to be provocative”, said Rafał Tomanski.
Also in the article, the author raised a series of questions such as: How can Vietnam remain calm and control his actions before the aggressive behavior of China? Is it possible to predict the next moves of China?... The author said that these issues require a thoughtfulness because the insecurity in Asia, particularly in the South China Sea could make serious consequences for the whole world.

The Vietnamese refrain about these territorial waters is constant and unerring.

China is breaking the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, and that the vessels are engaged in illegal activities in waters that are part of Vietnam's continental shelf.

It appears that China just wants to infringe on every Asian nations territorial integrity. Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia.... Who's next? The real issue is that they don't have the resources to support 1.3billion. So they need to rob others or negotiate deals and pay for the resources which they desperately need.

China is expanding her territory, aggressively attack and bully those weaker countries such as Vietnam and Philippine. When an aggressive country appear, all the weaker ones will automatically unite to create balance of power.

I have done my research on the evidences on the ownership of Vietnam over the Paracels and Spratly Islands as well. If Hung Quan needs information, you're always welcomed.

Even when Vietnam was under France, it's still under Vietnam's jurisdiction.

The islands are not belong to China, the 200 miles that China claimed overlapping is invalid. The southeast most of China is Hai Nan island.

China declare war, then there will be enemy of the world.
