While the Chinese are making violations of LAC and creating bilateral tensions the U.S has come to counter it. As per reports from CNN, 3 aircraft carriers of the U.S. Navy are patrolling closer to the Chinese coast in the pacific ocean. This can be seen as a message to the dragon nation who is already under the U.S.A’s hammer for coronavirus to seize its aggression.
This is the 1st time since 2017 that U.S. has started making such movements in the pacific ocean close to the Chinese coast. The 3 aircraft carriers namely USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Theodore Roosevelt are both patrolling in the western Pacific, while the USS Nimitz is in the east. It is also an act whereby the US is attempting to demonstrate to the whole region and even the world that it remains the most powerful naval force, as they could enter the South China Sea and threaten Chinese troops. China has been an aggressor in the South China sea from quite sometimes.
As per reports, each vessel contains more than 60 aircraft and is the biggest deployment of US aircraft carriers in the Pacific since 2017. ” Carriers and carrier strike groups writ large are phenomenal symbols of American naval power. I really am pretty fired up that we’ve got three of them at the moment” said Rear Admiral Stephen Koehler. The U.S. is also keeping a close eye on the LAC with its military satellites.
The U.S. Intelligence reports have also confirmed that casualties on the Chinee side are higher. They have said that a senior commanding officer of the Chinese side has been killed in the borderline violations by China. Meanwhile, the dragon has been irked by the U.S.A’s act to contain its mischievous act. The escalations of tension from China is also seen as an act to divert the attention of its public from the virus it has spread in the world.
