LADD REEF, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Satellite images taken by a U.S. based firm revealed suspected dredging work on Ladd Reef, a coral reef controlled by Vietnam in the South China Sea. Ladd Reef is about 450 km from Vietnam’s southeastern coast and is completely submerged at high tide. It has a 42-meter-tall lighthouse, which is operated by a small number of Vietnam soldiers and worker. Analysts told Reuters that such dredging work could be the precursor to more extensive construction on other reefs, and Ladd Reef might be used to boost access for supply ships and fishing boats. It could also help defend the nearby Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has expanded its airstrip. Vietnam is one of the many nations that claims the South China Sea as part of its territory. China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have also made claims in the region. Vietnam has become China’s main rival in the disputed South China Sea. According to Reuters, the mobile rocket launchers installed on several islands controlled by Vietnam are capable of striking China’s runway and military installations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

China's policy toward South China Sea since Deng Xiaoping is "lay the disputes aside and exploit together". China has a long historical relationship with South China Sea: King of Nanyue (predecessor of Vietnam, a part of China till 939AD, Vietnamese: Nhà Triệu) Zhao Tuo (a Han Chinese 240BC-137BC, Vietnamese: Triệu Đà) administrated northern part of South CS. 1972 unearthed Mawangdui Han Tombs extracted some maps with S China S. "Book of Later Han" wrote between 432AD and 445AD has chapters about S China Sea. Various later historical documents describe SC Sea. The most famous event for Chinese to explore South CS is "Zheng He's Voyages". Zheng He (1371–1433 or 1435), formerly romanized as Cheng Ho, was a Chinese mariner, explorer, diplomat, fleet admiral, and court eunuch during China's early Ming dynasty. He was originally born as Ma He in a Muslim family, later adopted the conferred surname Zheng from Emperor Yongle. Zheng commanded expeditionary voyages to Southeast Asia, South Asia, Western Asia, and East Africa from 1405 to 1433. His larger ships stretched 120 meters or more in length. These carried hundreds of sailors on four tiers of decks. South China sea is very important "belt" for old Chinese's trade route. "China" as porcelain can be found in many places on land or under water along the old "belt" trade route. If you think China should claim a small part of South China Sea then China can get peace with other countries? Which small part? If we claim small part of SCS, it is not reasonable. In the ancient time, Chinese ancestor's activity/navigation is not restricted to a small part or to a fixed sea route. Most islands or coral reef are claimed after WW2, or after WW1. But Chinese has relationship with SCS is 1500 years earlier than most of the claims.

Alex Mercer (10 months ago)
They obviously haven't fought China when they got destroyed in 1988. Now they're just building there with Chinese permission in secret, otherwise they would've been destroyed again.

Everyone is gonna end up killing all marine life in there...
Mirrorwarrior (1 year ago)
US construction at Diego Garicia in the Indian Ocean near Mauritius and at Guam near Japan didn't do any damage and probably this wont too. It's just basic dock construction and land emplacements of artillery/rocket launchers. Marine life is damaged by excessive fishing, destruction of coral reefs, pollution dumped into the ocean and so on not by such simple construction.

That's because Cambodia is too weak to keeps it land. Survival of the fittest.
TeeHee benjce (1 year ago)
I remembered that Vietnam help Cambodia go throu Khmer Rogue troops in 1978 crisis ages ago they send soldier to help protect Cambodia from a lot killing not invade. Now Cambodia got support from China and turn there back on Vietnam. What a shame . About South China Sea, China claim almost 80% of South China Sea belong to them because it is 'south china sea' that not make any sense , they can't invade the island from strong country like Japan or Korea , and they ran out of resources. That's why now they start to invade Vietnam sea territories.
