Freedom of the Seas

http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/20/politics/south-china-sea-navy-flight/index.html

The Communist Chinese are using a form of lawfare against the Western nations.  They have been converting a reef into an island.  They are making runways and building a harbor out of what had once been open sea.

Their plan is one of conquest.  They will claim a 200 mile limit around the island, thereby gaining hundreds of square miles of territory in the South China Sea.  We should not let this stand as a method of conquest.

The United States and other Pacific nations should never recognize artificially created islands as national territory.  This is conquest, pure and simple.  What is to stop the Communists from creating more and more of these artificial islands and taking over all of the South China Sea?  We must not allow this loophole in the law to usurp freedom of the seas, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
