SCS has long been militarized with the presence of US Navy, and the military garrisons from Vietnam, Philippines, etc. on the islands they occupy. The Chinese are already late to the party.

They must not have read the article. These islands China built are not in their backyard. If anything they are in the Phillipines, Vietnam, and Japan’s backyard. And if those countries had the Naval assets, they would be conducting these transits through the South China sea. Any problem in the South China sea can be laid directly on the doorstep of China the moment they started dredging.

China will not back down and also has Russia on their side.
This American attempt to dominate the world must stop.

There could well be a few inch or feet of rocks protruding. USN may be lying about LTE with only 500 meter sea for the Chinese. The reason is Subi/Mischief Reefs have great military significance for USN as they are near Subic Bay and Oyster Bay and US do not want to see Chinese put radar and missiles there.

US have to give 100% proof the reef is fully submerged at high tide. The world cannot afford another lie like the WMD yellow cake lies Saddam have that led to the Iraq War.

The U.S. does not need to be poking around the South China sea, telling China what to do. We are not the Asia hall monitors. We should have learned that in Korea and Vietnam.

Well, and also sex. Oh, and food. And music. And math. And art. Especially art, which brings us back again to Esperanto, which is an artfully-created language.

As so often before they ask us to do that they say and not what they do themselves. Double standards are plentyful in the Pax Americana politics.
