On the one hand, tensions are running high between Indian and Chinese forces in Ladakh, on the other hand, tensions are rising in the South China Sea. The United States has sent two of its nuclear-powered aircraft carriers to the South China Sea. This has escalated US tensions with China. As China expands its reach in the Indian Ocean and the Pacific, the world is united in its desire to encircle the dragon in the sea and respond to its strength.
2 giant nuclear warships deployed in the South China Sea
The U.S. has deployed two of its warships, the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz, in the South China Sea to put pressure on China at sea and attack when needed. Tensions in the area have since peaked. Both of these warships are constantly observing the ability of warplanes to strike from aircraft carriers.
America ready to test its power on China
USS Ronald Reagan and USS Nimitz are both nuclear-powered multi-mission aircraft carriers. These giant warships are considered to be one of the largest warships in the world and both have the capacity to carry about 5,000 sailors. The presence of nuclear-powered warships makes it clear that the United States is ready to test its power over China. It also shows the extent to which tensions between the US and China have risen.
China felt threatened by many countries
Right now America is looking for an opportunity in which it can dust off China’s strength and influence. The United States has launched the exercise in the South China Sea at a time when the Chinese navy is also conducting exercises in the same area. Since July 1, China’s navy has been threatening Taiwan and other neighboring countries by demonstrating its military readiness.
