FPF #254 – Close Call in the South China Sea

On FPF #254, I discuss a close call between US and Chinese Navy ships. The US ship was conducting a ‘freedom of navigation’ mission in waters claimed by China. The Chinese ship carried out maneuvers that brought it very close to the US ship. I review the history of the US and Chinese tensions over the region. I explain how similar operations for the US turned deadly.¬†
