In short, Beijing summoned a senior US diplomat on Aug. 4, after Washington criticized a new city and military garrison that China set up in a widely contested ocean area stretching 3.5 million kilometers (1.4 million miles), from Taiwan to Singapore.




I just measured the distance from Taiwan to Singapore on google earth and it's ~1,800 miles as the crow flies. Why is yahoo reporting it as 1.4 million miles?

Probably square miles. 1800 x 1800 = 3,240,000

We can all sit back and watch while China perform their carrier ops.

HideU.S. military response

The U.S. government responded by staging the biggest display of American military might in Asia since the Vietnam War.[3] President Clinton ordered additional ships into the region in March 1996. Two aircraft carrier battlegroups, those centered on USS Nimitz and USS Independence, were present in the region, and have been publically claimed to have entered the Taiwan Strait. The Independence battle group was homeported in Japan at the time, and was in the area during the crisis, but reportedly remained outside of the effective exclusion zone delineated by Chinese weapons tests, posing no challenge to what some have interpreted as a de-facto Chinese blockade of the strait. There is no evidence that the Nimitz battlegroup ever reached the vicinity of Taiwan.[citation needed]

Clinton sent the navy into the Taiwan strait in 1996 during Chinese weapons test leading up to elections in Taiwan. America is bound by treaty to protect Taiwan.
Does anyone think Obama would do the same as Clinton did and should America be obligated to protect Taiwan if china would move aginst them?

They have parked ships off the Phillipines recently. They seem to be playing the role of Japan on Dec 7,1941 and trying to recreat the greater co-properity sphere
