I had always assumed it was a part of the Phillipines.

who else?

I'd say that it belongs to the Philippines, especially considering the proximity. China is just trying to flex its muscle and push its smaller neighbors around, especially the countries in Southeast Asia. Of course, a country like Japan would never let China push it around. As a matter of fact, there is currently some sabre-rattling between China and Japan over particular islands in the vicinity.

It is as much a Chinese territory as Tibet. Do the math.

^ Good point. What the Chinese did in Tibet was horrible. If I recall correctly, it was invaded in the 1950s or thereabouts.
