The countries in that region have been at each other over those islands for many decades. There is a bunch of oil and natural gas out there, that is what this is all about.

the solution, of course, is for the US/Vietnam to build islands of its own! we got more ships than the PRC

Factually and truthfully whether we want to admit it or not, it comes down to the U.S. Military wants to do whatever they want... but don't even think about objecting or reacting if you're another country.

Thankfully we had a SANE President that said "NO" to the military.
