Try not to blink - US losing patience with China

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


China, he said, was challenging freedom of navigation in the South China Sea by reclaiming land on disputed reefs on a “massive scale”. Two days earlier America had signalled its annoyance by sending a surveillance aircraft close to one of the reefs where China is building an airstrip. Such secretive flights are common, but this one was different. The plane also took a crew from CNN, which broadcast the Chinese navy’s testy response through a radio transmission in English: “Leave immediately, in order to avoid misjudgment.”

Sort of old news, but I notice each side is getting louder this week. In the short term, only thing bad that could happen is if there is a sea accident nearby.

Long term, I'm sure this will be staging ground for further deployments near the Philippines. If I remember correctly the Philippines currently maintain a garrison on a ship wreck in the Spratly Area.
