'Volcanic Specks in the Pacific'

From the CSM:

A handful of volcanic specks in the Pacific Ocean are sparking fresh diplomatic ruckus, as China and its neighbors tussle over the resource-rich and militarily strategic seas that lie off their coasts.

China is building a resort on the Paracel Islands, Vietnam is buying submarines from Russia, and Japan is turning rocks into permanent islands, in the middle of the ocean.
