Should China prepare for new legitimate war in South China Sea?

A few days ago, US military office made an apology to  China for its military jet close to China's island in South China sea. Most Chinese consider it as a victory of China's sovereign on South China Sea, and take it for grant that US accept the current situation. However, I think that there may be a new potential crisis if China did not perceive the legitimate war over south China sea. 

According to The Diplomat, Zaobo and other media, the dispute of south China sea seems occurred between China and its neighbor states, actually, the dispute occurred between China and US. To some extend, the issue of south china sea involves the competition  between the rising power and established power. "Review of diplomacy in 2015, south china sea has been the focus issue between China and US" predicted,  though military conflict would be avoided, the dispute may become more severe. 

Legitimate dispute would be dominate in south China sea in the future. Support by US, Philippine and other neighbor states involving the dispute would appeal to international court. Besides Philippine, Vietnam and Indonesia may take judicial proceedings about south china sea in future.

Though China insisted to refuse the current judicial issue, it may need more preparation for the coming judicial proceedings in future.

    The problem is: Both (Trump & Kim) play the chicken game.

    Kim "just" wants to become an acept partner (eye-to-eye) with other countries.
    For that he allways "shout": See, I have the a-bomb as well, so ... you have to talk with me.
    He is like a kid, which want to be treated like a grown up.

    His dad and his grandfather have had that behavior as well.
    So the rest of the world knew, how ti handle it.

    But now it can become dangerous, because Trump, dont know what to do.
    In some ways he is similar to Kim: Both think, they can do what they want.

    I am sure, Kim know the reality - Trump dont. He really believe what he say ... more worst: He dont accept reality. He built is own reality, named alternative facts.

    Worst case: Trump realy start military actions.
    At least (in his thinking) its a good way to let the americans stand behind him - and let them forget about the problems he have.

    Therefore Trump and Kim are twins: If you have problems inside of your country, just built an enimy outside and say: See, we are the good once - the others are bad.
    America first ... no matter what it will costs.

    I agree 100%.Sad to know that the USA may not wait. I was born in the USA and lived there over 50 years.Problem is the USA with Trump may again drop nukes as they did in WW2.USA likes to be the world police and have done a very poor job since WW2.
