Yeah, then u think CN will accept to be defeated by US and her allies and soon will collapse like Nazi, Soviet bcs CN is too weak against US when she can't control 80% SCS(east VN sea) ?

Just look at those pictures, if US block SCS(east VN sea) , then CN's economy will collapse due to merchant ships, oil tankers can not pass through


--------------
The South China Sea is a major trade route for crude oil, and in 2016, more than 30% of global maritime crude oil trade, or about 15 million barrels per day (b/d), passed through the South China Sea, according to US EIA. Additionally, more than 90% of these crude oil volumes transited the Strait of Malacca, the shortest sea route between suppliers in Africa and the Persian Gulf and markets in Asia, making it one of the world’s primary oil transit chokepoints.



Key points

  • A significant amount of crude oil (about 1.4 million b/d) passes through the strait on its way to Singapore and the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, where it is refined before transiting the South China Sea in the form of petroleum products.
  • The South China Sea is a major trade route for the Middle East, which accounted for more than 70% of total South China Sea crude oil shipments in 2016.
  • Saudi Arabia is the largest source of crude oil, making up almost one-fourth of crude oil volumes traversing the South China Sea. More than half of Saudi Arabia’s global crude oil shipments traveled through the South China Sea in 2016.
Before the lifting of UN sanctions on Iran’s crude oil exports in January 2016, Iran relied heavily on Asian markets for most of its exports. After the sanctions were lifted, Iran could once again export crude oil to Europe. However, the South China Sea route still accounted for 52% of Iran’s crude oil exports in 2016.



  • In addition to Middle Eastern and North African volumes, some regional countries bordering the South China Sea contribute to the overall shipments of crude oil through the region. Indonesia and Malaysia together accounted for 5% of crude oil loadings that passed through the South China Sea in 2016 and 2% of crude oil receipts.

Prepare the war to stop the war, that's why China built 6 artificial lslands on SCS.

On contrast, i wish Viet's economy would keep on booming, that's wil be good for economic integration for RCEP, a collapsed China might be not good for Vietnam.

You can still wish your biggest neighbour go down, but i don't care it, you keep on dreaming so might not good your mental health.

Since you really don't care about the UNCLOS and other international laws, then everything is a fair game.

No one, not even India wants a collapsed China. Just stop taking everyone's territories and try to form a more US-style Asian Alliance. If you treat everyone like a vassal state or an adversary, they will find someone else.
