The United States has deployed Marines in the South China Sea as tensions between Washington and Beijing continue to be on a knife edge. Revisiting a strategy used in Two, the US Marines have been deployed in order to practise their tactic of taking small islands in the region.

On March 1, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated: “any armed attack on Philippine forces, aircraft or public vessels in the South China Sea will trigger mutual defense obligations under Article IV of our mutual defense treaty.” To many analysts, Pompeo’s statement appeared to be the most significant action the Trump administration has taken to “redouble our commitment to established alliances” in the Indo-Pacific region, as promised in the 2017 National Security Strategy. It has long been unclear, however, whether the South China Sea falls “in the Pacific” — in which case the U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty would apply in the event of an armed attack there. If not, Manila would probably be on its own. Read More: https://wapo.st/2Fkwyzt

The guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell carried out a “freedom of navigation” operation to challenge China’s “excessive maritime claims” in the area. China says it sent ships and aircraft to identify and warn off the US ship. The two-day trade meetings in Beijing are being held during a 90-day truce in the ongoing US-China trade war. The countries are expected to hold another high-level meeting later this month on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.

U.S. deploys marines in South China Sea as tensions SOAR - ‘We must show China our POWER’ THE US has deployed Marines in the South China Sea as tensions between Washington and Beijing continue to be on a knife edge. Revisiting a strategy used in World W4r Two, the US Marines have been deployed in order to practise their tactic of taking small islands in the region. Deployed on the Japanese island of Iejima, the Marines captured an airfield as they practised their tactic of “securing advanced footholds”. Although the exercise was not an outward show of aggression towards Beijing, US Marine Corps General, Joseph Dunford admitted that it was essential that the US shows its dominance against Asian power. General Dunford said: “It is critical for us to be able to project power in the context of China. “If you look at the island chains and so forth in the Pacific as platforms from which we can project power, that would be a historical mission for the Marine Corps and one that is very relevant in a China scenario.” China has tried to increase its dominance in the region by claiming multiple islands within the country’s nine-dotted line strategy. Due to that strategy, China has claimed multiple islands which have led to disputes with neighbouring countries. Source: https://goo.gl/9AVqrd

South China Sea - U.S Navy Confronted With Chinese Cat Guard The Chinese navy issued warnings (with cat voice) to the U.S. Navy jet eight times during the flight, telling it to leave the area. The United States maintains its planes and ships are exercising internationally recognized freedom of navigation rights in and over the South China Sea. South China Sea underpins the economic dynamism of the region, which is based on extensive intra-regional and international trade. More than 5 trillion dollars'worth of trade passes through these waters each year. But the sea is contests by several Asian countries, which make this region a hot spot and could slide into a very dangerous water. U.S policy towards the South China Sea has evolved in response to the increase of tensions in these disputes and in particular to China's actions. Although the U.S does not take a position on the underlying claims to sovereignty, it has increased its involvement in the dispute with an emphasis on the peaceful resolution of disputes. As a result, maritime security in the South China Sea has become an issues in US-China relations.

UK to send new aircraft carrier loaded with F35 jets into South China Sea The United Kingdom will deploy its new aircraft carrier, loaded with two squadrons of F-35 aircraft into the politically-fraught South China Sea. British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech that the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations. At an address given to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, Williamson said Britain was the second largest investor in the region and it must display “hard power” and “lethality” to help protect interests. The £3 billion ($3.9 billion) carrier’s outing will also sail into the Middle East and Mediterranean and will be officially a mixed U.K./U.S. deployment. “Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier’s air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces (and) reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners,” Williamson said. The U.K. defense minister did not confirm exact dates for the mission. China has laid claim to almost all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources. United States destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed close to the Spratly Islands, territory disputed by China and the Philippines. China claimed that the ships entered without official permission but a spokesman for the US Navy’s 7th Fleet told CNN that the operation was to “challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law.” China is in the process of developing its own aircraft carrier capability, with currently only one considered combat-ready. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) the country could have as many as 6 carriers by the 2030s. Source www.cnbc.com

Pentagon officials said two guided-missiIe destroyers had travelled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the fiercely disputed Spratly Islands. The deployment is seen as the latest attempt by Washington to stand up to what it believes are attempts by Beijing to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese and other Southeast Asian navies operate. China claims almost all of the South China Sea and frequently criticises the US and its allies over naval operations near Chinese-occupied islands. Britain today announced it was sending its new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth to the volatile region on its first operational mission.

Chief of US Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said on Tuesday the US and China “will meet each other more and more on the high seas” after a Chinese warship came close to a US ship in the disputed South China Sea. The Chinese vessel came within 45 yards of the USS Decatur during a “freedom of navigation” sail in late September, US Vice President Mike Pence said this month. The US mission was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing’s efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese, and some Southeast Asian navies operate. In the weeks since, a US Navy research ship has visited Taiwan and two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait. China considers Taiwan a breakaway province and has bolstered its presence around the island country. In mid-October, during a meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the US and its partners in the region would “continue to fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows and our national interests demand.”

The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation." The operation was carried out "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, told CNN.

The US sent a B-52 bomber through the South China Sea for the first time in months US Air Force B-52H Stratofortress bombers flew over the South and East China Seas. China has previously bristled at US bomber flights in the region, calling them "provocative." Beijing has lashed out multiple times in recent months over US freedom-of-navigation operations in the South China Sea and Taiwan strait transits conducted by the US Navy. "Two B-52H Stratofortress bombers took off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and participated in routine training missions," US Pacific Affairs told ABC News, explaining that while one bomber "conducted training in the vicinity of the South China Sea," the other trained near Japan in cooperation with the US Navy and Japanese forces. Online flight-tracking data for the flights indicates that one flew near the Philippines while the other conducted operations around Japan. The last time the US Air Force sent bombers through the South China Sea was in November. The US repeatedly sent bombers through the area last year. The B-52 bombers stationed in Guam are there in support of the US Air Force's Continuous Bomber Presence (CBP) mission intended to deter any country with adversarial intentions. Bomber flights over the South and East China Seas are perceived as challenges to China, which has attempted to assert its dominance over the strategic waterways. The US has, in the past, sent bombers to Korea in a show of force to the North in the wake of hostile actions. As it does with US Navy freedom-of-navigation operations, Beijing has previously criticized US bomber flights over the South and East China Seas, calling them "provocative." The US has conducted two freedom-of-navigation operations in the South China Sea this year, and the US Navy has also twice sent US warships through the Taiwan Strait. In response, China has issued warnings, urging to steer clear of these areas, and even flexed its muscles by showing off its anti-ship weaponry, such as the "carrier killer" DF-26 intermediate-range ballistic missile. B-52 bombers are high flying heavily-armed aircraft. Some are nuclear-capable bombers, while others have been denuclearized. It is unclear whether the B-52 bombers flying above contested waterways are nuclear-capable aircraft. Source www.mysanantonio.com

China bluntly told the United States to stop sending ships and military aircraft close to islands claimed by Beijing in the South China Sea, during talks that set the stage for a meeting between President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping later this month. The U.S. pushed back Friday, insisting it will continue to “fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.” In late September, U.S. and Chinese vessels nearly collided near a disputed reef. Despite the frank airing of differences at the meeting in Washington of the two nations’ top diplomats and military chiefs, both sides stressed the need to tamp down tensions, which have flared amid a bitter trade dispute that Trump and Xi are expected to tackle at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina. “The United States is not pursuing a policy of Cold War containment with China,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters following the U.S.-China Diplomatic and Security Dialogue. “Rather we want to ensure that China acts responsibly and fairly in support of security and prosperity of each of our two countries.”

South China Sea: U.S. Navy won't alter sail-bys at sea despite China maneuver The U.S. Navy won't alter its so-called "freedom of navigation" sail-bys in the disputed South China Sea and has pressed ahead with such operations despite a dangerous maneuver by a Chinese navy ship against an American destroyer, a senior U.S. Navy commander said Monday. Vice Adm. Phillip Sawyer, commander of the U.S. 7th Fleet, told reporters in Manila that Washington protested that "unprofessional behavior" by the Chinese ship, which maneuvered very close to the USS Decatur as the latter sailed closely by a Chinese-occupied island in the Spratlys in September. "No, it's not going to change where we do our freedom of navigation operations," Sawyer said when asked if the Sept. 30 incident off Gaven Reef would change such U.S. Navy operations. Several such sail-bys have been undertaken by American naval ships since that close encounter in the disputed waters, he said. "It was concerning because the ships got too close," Sawyer said, adding that U.S. officials have voiced "our displeasure with what we consider to be unprofessional behavior." The USS Decatur had sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven Reef when a Chinese destroyer dangerously approached within 45 yards (41 meters) of the bow of the U.S. Navy ship, which changed course to prevent a collision. The Decatur was also warned to leave the area, U.S. Pacific Fleet officials said at the time. China said the Luoyang, a Chinese mis-sile destroyer, was deployed to identify the U.S. warship and drive it away near Chinese territory. Beijing protested the Decatur's action as provocative.

China’s military announced on Sunday that it had dispatched warships to challenge two United States Navy vessels that sailed through waters in the South China Sea that China claims as its own. The Chinese confronted the American ships and warned them to leave, the Ministry of National Defense said in a statement posted on its website, but other details of the encounter were not immediately clear. The American vessels — the Higgins, a destroyer, and the Antietam, a cruiser — passed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands, an archipelago in the northern part of the disputed waters of South China Sea off the coast of Vietnam. The chief spokesman for China’s Ministry of National Defense, Senior Col. Wu Qian, said that the United States “gravely violated Chinese sovereignty.” Read More: http://bit.ly/warships-in-south-china-sea

US navy plans major show of strength in South China Sea as warning to Beijing The United States Pacific Fleet has drawn up a plan for a major show of force as a warning to China that will indicate its determination to counter Beijing’s military activity, it was reported on Thursday amid rising tension over the disputed South China Sea. The plan would see planes and ships passing close to Chinese-claimed waters in the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait in a freedom of navigation operation, CNN reported, citing several unnamed US defence officials. The proposal means US ships and aircraft will be operating close to Chinese forces and is expected to trigger a strong reaction from Beijing. China’s defence ministry did not immediately comment on the report, but a Chinese diplomatic observer said that by expanding its operations from the South China Sea to the Taiwan Strait the US was escalating the confrontation. The observer also predicted that China would step up its military presence in both areas. The proposal is being driven by the military but CNN noted that carrying it out it in early November when the US midterm elections are taking place could have political implications for the Trump administration if the US troops are challenged by China.

US warship confronts China for 'EXCESSIVE maritime claims' in South China Sea A US warship sailed through the South China Sea earlier today to challenge China’s “excessive maritime challenge”, officials have confirmed. Guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell patrolled near the Parcel Islands challenging China’s claim to the region. The Parcel Islands have been controlled by China since its forces seized them from Vietnam in 1974. Both Vietnam and Taiwan maintain rival claims to the islands. The USS McCampbell sailed within 12 miles of the islands of Tree, Lincoln and Woods in a so called ‘freedom of navigation operation’. US Pacific Fleet spokeswoman Rachel McMarr said the visit was intended to “preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law”. China has significantly upgraded its military presence in the Parcel Islands over the past few years. Recent satellite images showed jet fighters had been stationed on at least one of the islands.
