Scuffle in the South China Sea #4

China has stated conflicts over the islands in the South China Sea could spark a war.

Chinese and American admirals have consulted over video conference.  The USS Lassen also sailed through Vietnamese and Philippine's claimed territorial waters.

The European Union has decided to side with the United States over the issue.

Here's the Economist's take on the scuffle.

Nontrivial Update: The Chinese have started flying J-11 (Su-27 knockoffs) over the islands.  There are some reports that they are based on one of the islands.
