Keep up the exercises

Good job

They should be conducting the exercises right around the Second Thomas Shoal all year. Unannounced and live fire, too.

Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Vietnam have competing claims of sovereignty in portions of the South China Sea, a passage through which $3 trillion in goods move every year.

Factual to consider that Taiwan, China, Vietnam and the Philippines all claim the Second Thomas Shoal

And the Taiwan claim in the SCS is identical to China's. When the Taiwan coast guard employs water cannon it is never reported in the western media.

it is clear sign from the world : enough is enough, we are getting fed up with chicom big bully behavior in Ayungin Shoal. We shall not name them as china coastal guard, their behavior is exactly the same like barbaric pirates. They are evil in disguise. Thank you Japan, The West, for always stand together with Philippines!

China = the neighbor no one wants. No doubt on the training objectives: How to respond to PLA Navy, I mean, PRC Coast Guard, I mean, PRC Maritime Militia, I mean, "friendly Chinese fishermen" when they want to help you better understand Chinese territorial boundaries...

increasing aggressiveness of China

This article is in regard to China's aggressiveness in the Indo-Pacific, but those that don't want to cede rights and claims in that region to the CCP also recall China is backing Russia's aggressive territorial grabs. The Russia/China pairing, aided by Iran, North Korea and others are doing what they can to make life less stable around the world. China's business class need to do something to rein in their buddies in the CCP, or risk losing the huge profits they've become accustomed to. You'd think they should have learnt from Covid and the effects it has had on global trade. Curse Nixon-Kissinger and the global corporate heads that have enriched the CCP and themselves, looking directly at you now Elmo X.
