    The long-range bomber missile carrier H-6K of the 10th Bomber Division of the PLA Air Force landed for the first time on the disputed island of Yongxindao (the English-language name Woody, Paracel Islands).
    In February 2016, China placed two batteries of anti-aircraft missile systems HQ-9 on the island.
    At the same time, J-11 fighter jets and JH-7 fighter-bombers were spotted on the island. It was also reported about the deployment of anti-ship complexes of medium-range YJ-62 and unmanned aerial vehicles there.

    US tells China to remove missile systems in South China Sea
    It'll have the same effect if China tells the US to close its bases on Okinawa, Guam & Diego Garcia, Japan tells Russia to do the same on S. Kurils, or if Argentina tells the UK to demilitarize the Falklands.

    Indeed.

    If climate change is really an issue there are a lot of countries around the world that will be interested in Chinese island building technology and experience... places like most of the islands of the Pacific would be interested for a start...

    And there too: In the Maldives, in the Indian Ocean, rising sea levels are causing salt water to intrude into underground fresh water supplies. In order to adapt, the country is trying to build rainwater cisterns and new pipe systems to ensure that its people have safe drinking water supplies. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/17/climate/islands-climate-change-un-bonn.html

    Many people don't realise it but when you are on a very small island getting clean drinking water is a real problem most of the time... the other problem is that if you use electrical power it is normally diesel generators which needs diesel to be imported so power is normally only on for a few hours a day.

    These new Russian portable NPPs combine the virtues of a stable continuous power supply, with the potential for desalination plant operation that can be used to create clean drinking water too.

    In colder regions it also generates heat as a byproduct that can also be used to support normal life too.

    US drops the gauntlet on the South China Sea ..China’s deployment of surface-to-air missiles and anti-cruise missile systems to contested islands earlier this year..- note that those r defensive systems! If they put AshMs there, they'll be used in defense to break the blockade or invasion.
