CNN: US Navy to send two aircraft carriers and several warships to South China Sea

The US Navy will send two aircraft carriers and several accompanying warships to the South China Sea in the coming days to participate in a military exercise.

The USS Nimitz and USS Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Groups are conducting dual carrier operations in the Philippine Sea and South China Sea," said Lt. Joe Jeiley, a spokesman for the Seventh Fleet. "Operating two carrier strike groups in the Philippine Sea and South China Sea provides advanced training opportunities for our forces and provides combatant commanders with significant operational flexibility should those forces be called upon in response to regional situations.

"The presence of two carriers is not in response to any political or world events. This advanced capability is one of many ways the U.S. Navy promotes security, stability, and prosperity throughout the Indo-Pacific."

The exercise is long planned but comes as China conducts military drills of its own in the area, near the contested Paracel Islands, exercises that have been criticized by the US and other countries. The Wall Street Journal first reported the carriers' participation in the coming exercise.

Happy 4th of July. Hope China celebrates with us.

Oh and don't forget to pay the Americans a few trillions - that's just for the interest on the systemic theft you committed against the west. Then we talk about the trillions in losses we had to endure because of the WUHAN virus. And that excludes the hundreds of thousands of dead. That comes on top. We will talk about that and Europe will stand with the US and any European traitor that calls herself or himself leader and even thinks Scott siding with China's will learn what a mob looks like. We too have mobs and they have zero patience left for our spineless leaders

Go America!

They're good for PLAN target practice. Comrade Xi laughs at your threats and waits patiently while America disintegrates.

Meanwhile, Comrade Kim keeps building his nuclear arsenal. The heroes of communism grow stronger every day.
