    The U.S. Navy announced Saturday that an aircraft carrier and a guided-missile destroyer were deployed to the South China Sea.

    The Navy said the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Wayne E. Meyer were sent to the South China Sea on “routine operations,” despite warnings from Beijing not to challenge its sovereignty.

    “China respects and upholds the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea, which countries enjoy under international law, but firmly opposes any country’s attempt to undermine China’s sovereignty and security in the name of the freedom of navigation and overflight,” China’s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

    The naval ships will likely sail within the 12 nautical miles of China’s artificial islands, the Navy Times reported last week.

    U.S. Navy leaders believe that freedom of navigation operations help secure U.S. influence in the region, while China claims the operations are a challenge to claim territory.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Although the disagreement between Taiwan and China are really NOT our problem, they are to some degree as the defenders of democracy AND a HUGE trading partner with the PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC* and a friend to Taiwan. When will those fucking Chinese bastards just give it up. They have LOADS of territory AND illegally hold Tibet. Let this little island go you fucktards! Besides, be honest, you're almost as much a capitalistic country as anyone at this point AND with the Clintons out of office, you may still OWN us in some respects, you can't control us anymore. Those sniveling weasel shits are OUT of the spotlight forever, deal with it.
    Show the Chinese we aren't quitting on our allies and once and now that Obama is out of office, maybe we can talk China into slapping that little ratshit Kin Jung DUNG into backing down OR kill the little fucker outright. Either way works.

    Killing him works better. Fuck him.
