- The western Illuminati is still desperate to start their Satanic WW3. Watch for the Chinese response in publicly ditching the US dollar, revaluing the price of gold higher … ie. destroying their global financial hegemony.
- “The US Threatened China’s Sovereignty” – China Scrambles Fighter Jets After US Warship Sails Near Disputed Reef

Following the latest escalation in South China Sea territorial tensions, which culminated with China refusing to grant the Stennis aircarrier group access to the Hong Kong port, overnight the US decided to provoke some more Chinese anger when it sailed the guided missile destroyer the USS William P. Lawrence within 12 nautical miles of Chinese-occupied Fiery Cross Reef, according to U.S. Defense Department spokesman, Bill Urban said. This was the third warship the US has sent into contested waters in the South China Sea in less than seven months.
Chinese facilities on Fiery Cross Reef include a 3,000-metre (10,000-foot) runway which the United States worries China will use it to press its extensive territorial claims at the expense of weaker rivals.
Urban said that the so-called freedom of navigation operation was undertaken to “challenge excessive maritime claims” by China, Taiwan, and Vietnam which were seeking to restrict navigation rights in the South China Sea. What was not said is that the US once again decided to test the preparedness and eagerness of China to respond to what it perceives maritime territorial aggression.
Since the entire purpose of this latest provocation was to observe China’s response, it succeeded when China promptly scrambled two fighter jets in proximity to the U.S. navy ship, a patrol China denounced as an illegal threat to peace which only went to show its defense installations in the area were necessary. China’s Defence Ministry said that in addition to the two fighter, an additional three warships shadowed the U.S. ship, telling it to leave.
