The fear is, the dispute seems provoke regional conflict and depress the region security.  


John Nash has proposed his famous theory of non-cooperative games. According to Nash Equilibrium theory, there must be an equilibrium point in n-person game. Applying Nash Equilibrium theory, there is also an equilibrium point in South China Sea dispute.

    Most people listen and read western propaganda, Kim is this bad and he's this mad. Oh yes, I forgot Kim was the mad president who invade countries across the world and kill thousands of woman, children and old people. Who are the mad murderers, a few months ago a TV presenter ask a senator on MSNBC if America will get rid of their nuclear arsenal, the answer was NO America must defend themselves.
    Now the million dollar question is, why can't Kim be allowed to defend NK.
