Things are heating up in the South China Sea between Vietnam and China. Some think it may lead to out and out war between the two communist countries. In this episode we will look at some news coverage of the situation. One article from Radio Free Asia titled: Are China and Vietnam on the Verge of Another War? by Parameswaran Ponnudurai recaps the situation. Another titled: What If China And Vietnam Went To War? by Jono Simrin on testtube.com adds more to the story. As a Vietnam veteran it is interesting to see how that tough little country is handling big bully in the neighborhood. I somehow have the feeling the Vietnamese will come out on top.
