    Beijing blasts US over ‘provocative military acts’ in the South China Sea

    And we're not leaving. More "We're Innocent" propaganda on behalf of China. China's militarized artificial islands on a total of 7 coral reefs in the SCS after Xi claimed China didn't intend on militarizing the South China Sea years ago.

    Beijing blasts US over ‘provocative military acts’ in the South China Sea


    Defence ministry claims United States ‘carried out navigational hegemony’ by repeatedly sending warships to the region
    US aircraft carrier groups conducted drills in the area last week while Chinese navy held its own exercises near contested Paracel Islands


    China’s defence ministry has lambasted the US for “provocative acts” after it sent two aircraft carrier groups into the South China Sea while the Chinese military was conducting exercises in the disputed waters.

    In a statement on Thursday, the ministry claimed the United States had “carried out navigational hegemony” through repeated deployments of warships to the region, saying Washington was the biggest driver of militarisation in the strategic waterway.

    “We hope the US will examine itself and stop its provocative military acts in the South China Sea, stop smearing and blaming the Chinese side for no reason, stop trying to drive a wedge between countries in the region, and stop creating this tense situation,” a spokesperson said on the ministry’s website.

    China’s military said it had engaged in routine training exercises from July 1 to July 5 near the Paracel Islands, known as the Xisha Islands in Chinese, that are claimed by China, Vietnam and Taiwan. The US Navy announced on July 4 that it had deployed two aircraft carrier groups, the USS Nimitz and USS Ronald Reagan, to conduct tactical air defence exercises in the South China Sea “in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific”.

    Territorial disputes in the South China Sea – over 80 per cent of which Beijing claims as its own – have been a long-standing source of regional tension, including with rival claimants Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan. While Washington does not have claims in the strategic waters, it has been a vocal critic of Beijing’s increasingly aggressive assertions of its sovereignty in the South China Sea, and the US has regularly staged freedom of navigation operations there.

    There are ongoing efforts to resume negotiations between China and the countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) for a code of conduct in the South China Sea, a long-delayed effort complicated by sabre-rattling and rivalry between Beijing and Washington.

    The US Department of Defence said in a July 2 statement that the Chinese military exercises around the Paracel Islands had violated China’s international commitments to avoid actions that would “complicate or escalate disputes” in the region.

    “The military exercises are the latest in a long string of [Chinese] actions to assert unlawful maritime claims and disadvantage its Southeast Asian neighbours in the South China Sea,” the statement read. “[These] actions stand in contrast to its pledge to not militarise the South China Sea and the United States’ vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific region.”

    Also related, the USN & USAF have been busy reminding the Chinese Navy that they can't hide.

    American Surveillance Aircraft Have Been Flooding Into The Airspace South Of Taiwan

    Online flight tracking software has shown a notable uptick in U.S. military aerial activity in the strategic Bashi Channel, which runs from the southern end of Taiwan to the northern tip of the island of Luzon in the Philippines, in recent weeks. A steady stream of U.S. Air Force KC-135 tankers has been seen flying in and out of this general area, which serves the main boundary between the Philippine Sea and the South China Sea. Particularly noteworthy, clusters of P-8A Poseidon and P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft, and EP-3E Aries II and RC-135V/W Rivet Joint intelligence-gathering planes having also been observed operating there on many occasions over the last month or so.

    Just today, an RC-135W and a KC-135T were spotted flying in the area. Yesterday, an EP-3E and three separate P-8As flew in and around the channel. The day before that, a P-8A, a P-3C, an EP-3E, and an RC-135W had all been present at various times, with at least one KC-135R flying in support of the activity there.

    "The US military conducts 3 to 5 sorties to the #SouthChinaSea every day," the SCS Probing Initiative noted in a Tweet on July 7. China's Peking University in Beijing hosts the SCS Probing Initiative, which is, perhaps unsurprisingly, one of the most active entities tracking American military aviation activity, as well as that of U.S. military ships, in the South China Sea and elsewhere in the Pacific. The project does also tracks other countries' military activities in the region, too.

    Still, there does seem to have been a notable increase in U.S. military aerial activity in this one particular area since the end of June. One of the first major conflagrations came on June 24, when two P-8As, a P-3C, and an RC-135W were tracked in the Bashi Channel. Another major cluster aircraft, including 4 P-8As, an EP-3E, an RC-135W, and at least two KC-135s, also appeared in the area on July 3. In the intervening days, the SCS Probing Initiative watched smaller numbers of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance aircraft regularly move through the region, including one of the Air Force's two RC-135U Combat Sent electronic intelligence aircraft.

    Is it odd how those Hong Kong protests died out and they passed that law recently and opened their security office there as well as their 2 biggest competitors, the USA and India being hit hard with the covid?
