Vietnam has its own reclamation projects and have built military infrastructures on several islands. My concern, and that of the senior fellows at the CFR is that the West is framing this as Chinese aggression, the other players getting a pass. Taiwan claims all the Spratly's, which is stepping on Malaysia, Brunei, Philippine and Vietnam claims! We should see the West scolding everybody, rather than just China. And that doesn't even speak to China's superior title to the islands.
