  1. Wow, checkout the pics from this territory dispute.

  4. Oil, but how much I have no idea.
  5. Looks like the taiwanese also joined in. Maybe they will join forces with the Chinese navy to evict the Japs?!

  8. No, we cant give them that...too much oil underneath that we are going to want someday when we drain the rest of the world of the oil.
  9. I don't know I'd be willing to grant them any land maybe an ice floe. :D

    (Don't worry! They will either freeze to death or starve to death. Either way, they will all be long gone before we need that oil. :D )
