No doubt the Spratlys are an important issue for the region. I don't deny that. But all the countries in the region have been making noise about the spratlys for 30 plus years.

And ironically, if they did start drilling for oil, they might hurt fishing in the area.

Also, its ironic that if all the countries that have claims to the area would come to some sort of agreement to share the islands, they would all be better off.
