Interesting analysis of what is going on in the South China sea between China and Vietnam:
Perhaps it just a coincidence that the US has sent warships to Vietnam recently:
Interesting to see the ships they sent – “The 7th Fleet delegation consists of the guided-missile destroyers USS Chung-Hoon and USS Preble, the rescue and salvage ship USNS Safeguard, additional sailors from the Logistics Group Western Pacific command, and a mobile diving and salvage team. “
Will be interesting to watch how this develops.
