    If China has a solid claim then maybe it should take it to the appropriate international tribunal set up for that purpose. Why use force?

    They've had possession of those islands since before the tribunal ever existed. I don't think China feels they need to do that any more than the US feels they need to demonstrate to the tribunal the legality of annexing a different set of islands, .

    Vietnam inherited its territory from the old Republic of South Vietnam back in the '70s. Plus China's a lot further away from them than the other countries. But if they have a legitimate claim then they should take it to court. I'm guessing it's flimsier than you make it out to be.

    An isolationist position, I am sure most of your own countrymen disagree with you there, so no point debating with a minority.

    No such tribunal exists.

    Re: China threatens nuclear war with U.S.

    Wandering around the internet, I came across this article. It’s dated, (2006), but provides a comprehensive look into how a war by Russia and/or China, with Iran as an ally, would be fought against America. It’s a long read and don’t be put off by the religious references at the top or bottom, the article itself was really interesting.

    Russia and China Striking the United States where it hurts. Parts 1 & 2.
    From Asia Times Online Oct 19, 2006:
    AMERICA'S ACUPUNCTURE POINTS
