Sure seems like the saber rattling over there is getting serious with China demanding The US to stay out of The South China Sea!


The US Navy's state-of-the-art USS Ronald Reagan supercarrier has arrived at Japan's Yokosuka Naval Base - its new home. It's there to replace the USS George Washington as the naval power's primary forward-deployed aircraft carrier within its Seventh Fleet.

Washington has signaled it does not recognize Beijing's sovereignty over the several islands China has built on reefs in the Spratly archipelago and says the U.S. navy will continue to operate wherever international law allows.

The issue is central to increasingly tense relations between the United States and China, the world's two largest economies.
