Covering geo-political news and current affairs across Asia
China and Vietnam have had small presences on several reefs in the Spartly islands for decades, the recent massive works under taken by China started about 9 months after the first announcement of the US Pivot to Asia. Prior to this Vietnams Islands where more heavily fortified than China’s though this is not suprising considering the Johnson South Reef Skirmish. It must also be noted that UNESCO agreed to 5 of the Chinese ‘observation posts’ in 1987. Personally not pro China or Pro America, just noting an apparent cause and effect.
Google "Diaoyu Islands The Truth" to find the truth.
