I think it is possible to grant Filipinos first preferential rights to investing in the islands and the surrounding EEZs owned by China, once the fake historians are shooed out of the negotiating room, and facts are restored to their proper positions. We should develop the South China Sea into a booming tourist and fishing area, with joint ventures in their oil exploration as well, once we all agree on the facts regarding the historical sovereignty of each of these islands. History, NgTran, is our lighthouse for the entire South China Sea.
A new set of SOEs that have no vested interests in the region in the past should be created by China as well, or better yet, private corporations, to deal with the joint partnerships for economic development of the entire region.
Vietnam has a problem, with its own historical identity, as it had enjoyed all the rights of sovereignty with Chinese fishermen for more than a thousand years, when as Annam, it belonged to China, and every Annamese was also a Chinese citizen. Guangzhou, in fact, was once the capital of Vietnam, when it was called Annam. Intermarriages between Cantonese and Vietnamese have been going on for more than a thousand years, up to this very day. Opting for independence for the benefit of its local powers that be, these same local powers have sacrificed the economic rights of their subjects in the South China Sea, whilst China had continued to regard the Vietnamese as neighbors and did not attack them or shoo them way, in general, until the Vietnamese wanted to enforce "their" sovereignty that was derived in turn from China's sovereignty over the South China Sea when Annam was a province of China. This division of common property cannot occur without the consent of the entire people of China, even if Vietnam can keep its private property, on land, in Vietnam. However, this produced undue economic hardship on Vietnamese fishermen who need to fish in the South China Sea, like their Chinese ancestors had done for more than a thousand years. Vietnam needs to look in the mirror, and make a difficult decision, to persist in its misguided "independence" course of action, and end up in a war with China that can only lead to its eventual re-conquest on land by China, possibly in the next generation, or begin a process of realignment with China, in a federation-style of government, or as an autonomous region of China, in order to continue to enjoy equal rights over their ancestral fishing grounds shared with all Chinese, that their ancestors were, in the South China Sea. Vietnam will reject being a part of China, of course, and outright, too. But it will wonder in its solitude, if that was what indeed its ancestors really would have approved.
