Trump Sends Navy Destroyer To Challenge China

The U.S. Navy challenged China’s vast claims to the South China Sea on Thursday, Navy officials revealed.

The U.S. Navy conducted the third freedom-of-navigation operation under President Donald Trump in the South China Sea on Thursday. The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS John McCain (DDG-56) sailed within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the Spratly Island chain, according to Fox News.

A Navy P-8 reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft reportedly flew nearby.

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Dewey sailed past Mischief Reef in late May. The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem sailed near Triton Island, part of the Paracel Islands, in July.

Over the past year, China has been increasing its military presence in the South China Sea. China has been constructing military outposts in both the Paracels and the Spratlys and equipping them with armaments to protect its claims to the region, discredited by an international tribunal last year, through force.

China has constructed airstrips and hangars and protected harbors for the air and naval units in the Paracel Islands. The military has even deployed surface-to-air missiles. In the Spratly Islands, China has built airstrips and reinforced hangars, possible missile silos, and point defense systems.

    Hey Redman! Did they leave the monkey cage open again?? You are not only annoying but ignorant. If you need bananas ask your zoo keeper. Almost everything we use was invented by white people including that computer/telephone/cars/airplanes/appliances/medicines/electronics and so much more. What did your cave monkey relatives give to civilization? Get back in your cage where you belong !! Normally I ignore your stupid idiotic comments because you are unbalanced and can’t reason like a human. President Trump is the best president we ever had! You are a liar also. I have been all over the world and most people like the US..stop lying! Move to N Korea you stinking traitor!
