Vietnam is not fooling around. China claim to their long-held territory in the South China Sea is historic and ongoing. Vietnam is not allowing China to grab its islands which are a lot of territories. Already overfishing the traditional Vietnam main fishing areas in the Coastal Vietnam waters the economics are heating up.

This weekend Vietnam made it known they claim and will not bend to China suggesting their ownership of these waters. The international court has ruled China claims are illegal under a  maritime law of 200 years. China ignores the global court final ruling.

This flash point is not going away and is yet another trend for instability in the Region.
