China Orders Combat Preparation Against USA

A real escalation or just a storm in a tea cup?

Quote

Chinese president Xi Jinping has reportedly ordered the People's Liberation Army to prepare for combat.
This comes ahead of an international tribunal on Tuesday that's expected to issue an unfavorable ruling against China's claims over the South China Sea.
U.S.-based Boxun News said Tuesday that the instruction was given in case the United States takes provocative action in the waters once the ruling is made.
The U.S. and China have been expanding their military activities across the sea,... stoking heavy tension between the two superpowers.

According to Pepe Escobar the decision of the international tribunal is non-binding, but I've read other comments which are to the contrary:

The problem with the case in The Hague is that the Philippines did not try to solve it bilaterally; off the record, ASEAN diplomats admit that would be the only solution.

So no wonder Beijing decided not to be a part of the arbitration procedure, and preemptively rejects whatever ruling (which is non-binding anyway), insisting the court has no jurisdiction. The Philippines case is about territorial sovereignty and maritime delimitation; these are subject to general international law, not the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

It's all about some rock islands in the South China Sea and a cute US warship patrolling in the vicinity.

You can just beaver build a lump in the ocean, make claim to it and all the surrounding waters.

Oh wait, I did that in Florida. Nevermind.

This is exactly what the Chinese did here and there and the South China Sea, they raised a few atolls above sea level. Thereafter they claimed an exclusive economic zone of 200 miles around this island. Nice trick, eh? But there are 5 or 6 other nations who do the same, therefore the situation is quite intricate.

You might be right.

Lumber and materials are being shipped under military contractors for the construction of military officers housing.

The ratio of officers to troops formula suggests a major investment in the region.
