  1. As you can see they have build the base and it’s occupied well enough to start a war in that region all Americans and Japanese do is come near to those artificial island and defy Chinese warning but it’s safe to say it’s 100% in Chinese control.

  2. I have about 5% of my portfolio in uranium stock any advice on any other stock that I can
    grow my $300k capital to a million dollars?

  3. China will use it to dominate trade, also gas, resources and to strengthen its naval and marine military power dince they dont have lots of seas to do it

  4. International law was already broken the moment the Chinese government put that artificial island. The nine dash line is propaganda made by the Chinese Communist Party to take over ASEAN resources. Question if it does belong to them why do they not have claim this during those years. Why because Chinese government was little back then now there EXPANDING in the grounds of fake reasoning. CCP must not continue this way or military intervention will break out

  5. They won’t That, no one that those natural Island should put no one holds this world own by noone, they destroyed most reefs about a million years ago about ten of thousand of medicine cure dieseases

    most wildlife should set free, those are crucial in our survival becuase of power know DEVASTATION IT BRINGS

  6. Sad to see the reporting style of BBC becoming unprofessional. More like an american channel.

  7. Because America want to dominate the world as they’ve tried to do for the last 80 years, and China has the military and economic power to tell them to get fucked basically in simple terms.

  8. It’s not that countries are fighting over it but that countries are protecting their territories from China.

  9. Why fight over South China Sea? China and SE Asia countries should own it together. No point fighting over it and invite outsiders to initiate a war in this region.

  10. South China Sea should belong to Asean due to location and maybe we should call that sea ”Sea of Asean” .

  11. We should change our focus. This month the U.S. national debt reached $28 _trillion._ I am ready to put all of government on a diet, including the military-industrial complex.

  12. News of any conflict is alarming; but her expressions confuses me. Does she want an conflict?

    May be she is bored with the same type of news and just want to look good!!

  13. Mutual respect and co-existence are the solutions to this problem. If full swing war breaks out the WWIII would be inevitable! So, let’s calm down China by any means.
