U.S. sends aircraft carriers to South China Sea - UPI.com
UPI reports: "The U.S. Navy deployed two aircraft carriers near the South China Sea
on Saturday in an exercise designed to calm Asian allies in the region
and to make a show of military force to the Chinese.
The aircraft carriers USS John C. Stennis and USS Ronald Reagan arrived
in the Philippine Sea for exercises on Saturday ahead of a key
international court ruling on China's claims in the disputed South China
Sea. The exercise will feature more than 12,000 sailors, 140 aircraft
and six other ships, the U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement."
Comment: Let's hope and pray everyone keeps a cool head. Even a small incident at sea could quickly spiral out of control.
