    It seems that US is serious about China imperialistic and hegemonic moves in the South China Sea.

    This area requires to be watched carefully since it is becoming a potential flashpoint.

    One wonders how it will pan out.

    One must see how China reacts.

    Its only because China has heitened Vietnamese insecurity by bullying its way around the SCS. I might also highlight how this visit by Defence secretary Leon Panetta shows the possibility of US naval forces being based in Vietnam as compared to say Sec. Clinton who is the foreign minister equivalent visiting BD.
