The situation in South China sea can't be much clearer than this. China is trying to project power by avoiding the public eye, using the same tactics as classic american gangsters. Imagine Capone gathering all shop keepers in Chicago to one meeting in city hall where he offers protection. Why did he prefer to go to one shop at the time for a private conversation? Maybe the Chinese political tactics are inspired by old movies. And of course if you can't scare them in to submission you can always try to buy them off with humongous investments.
