Vietnam Ups The Military Ante At The Worst Possible Time For China

Daily Caller News Foundation | Ryan Pickrell
A Vietnamese naval soldier stands quard at Thuyen Chai island in the Spratly archipelago January 17, 2013. A group of anti-China protesters plan to gather on March 14, 2013 to mark the anniversary of the 1988 naval battle between China and Vietnam near Spratly reefs, in which 64 Vietnamese sailors were killed. Both Vietnam and the Philippines have previously complained about Chinese activity and even harassment in contested parts of the South China Sea. China's claim is by far the largest, forming a vast U-shape over most of the sea's 648,000 square miles (1.7 million square km), including the Spratly and Paracel archipelagos. China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan all claim territory in the sea, which covers important shipping routes and is thought to hold untapped oil and gas reserves.
