China wants the islands close to the PH and other countries like Vietnam. Do China wants to start a war in Asia? I certainly hope not. But as things are going lately, anytime soon war could be inevitable. China is bullying both Vietnam and the Philippines because China knows they are only small fragment of countries in southeast asia. They can outgun outrun both countries if they want to.
Sorry to argue with Clncarplz, China has NO valid claims on those island close to the Philippines, because they belong to the Philippines in the first place. Panatag shoal is 200 nautical miles from the Philippines, while to China it is more than 200+ nautical miles from them. China claim that everything within the south china sea belong to China. Which is ridiculous to just imagine it.

China does have some valid claims on the islands there plus the more land they control the more resources (money) they get.
China does not want to start a war instead they want to keep pushing the Philippines until they get what they want.

yes, china wants to provoke a war with smaller weaker nieghbors like vietnam and philippines, the war will be the excuse for china to invade and occupy greater and greater territory. the maritme territory has 3 important benefits for china, 1) natural resources such as oil that china needs badly. 2) control of strategic military outposts to control major shipping lanes in South China Sea will basically determine the outcome of any major war. 3) China needs a military victory over smaller neighbors to show other nations it is powerful and will be crushed by China if they refuse to cowtow to China demands; China wants to prove it can attack and invade neighbor nations, with impunity, like Russia, without the US doing anything about it. Once this is achieve most of the small weak nations around China will submit without a fight and allow China to invade occupy and take over
