[Instant News/Comprehensive Report] The U.S. Navy stated that a strike group consisting of the USS Nimitz, 1 missile cruiser, and 3 missile destroyers began patrolling the South China Sea on the 12th. China is sovereign over most of the South China Sea.

According to the "CNN" report, the commander pointed out that the Nimitz strike group has lethal and non-lethal capabilities from space to the seabed, and this is the first time it has entered the South China Sea for deployment.

As the Chinese military is rapidly modernizing and expanding its nuclear capabilities, the U.S. military is stepping up its threat in the South China Sea to contain China.

U.S. defense officials revealed that there are currently two Chinese warships following the Nimitz strike group. In fact, the Chinese navy often follows U.S. warships operating in the South China Sea, and claimed to drive the U.S. ships away after they left.

In November, China said it had expelled the USS Chancellorsville after it entered the South China Sea without permission, accusing the US of posing a security risk in the region.

The U.S. military emphasized that China is lying, and at the same time criticized the CCP for distorting the legitimate actions of the United States in the South China Sea.
