#1 China has repor warned the PHIL not to attempt to shootdown any PLA Drones = LR UAVS sent by China to monitor or recce the Spratlys, given that the Spratlys = Panatag/Scarborough Shoal is inherent or scared Chinese territory.
The size + borders of China's new Sansha/Sashi City basically nulls any hopes of the PHIL + VIETNAM + INDONESIA as per their own sovereign EEZ-SEZ in the SCS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THE CHINESE SANSHA/SASHI CITY IS TOO BIG + ENCROACHING TO ALLOW MULTIPLE COUNTRY-SPECIFIC ZONES.
Iff a war does break out in the SCS, + it very likely will iff war breaks between China + Japan in the East China Sea up north, WILL THE MILF = MOROS FIGHT WID MANILA + ALLIES, OR STAY NEUTRAL???
Espec iff China + PLA attack only the northern PHIL, etc. not Muslim Mindanao.

#2 China will not go to war over the SCS. They will encroach three miles and back out two, slowly gaining ground over the years.
