It looks as though everyone wants to show up to the South China Sea lately! We have the United States arriving with Nuclear Bombers and Attack drones with Warships at bay, and now reports indicate that Japan is planning to dispatch its largest warship on a three-month tour through the South China Sea beginning this May, three sources said. According to sources, it is the largest show of naval force in the region since World War Two. So why is this happening? Sources indicate
that China is laying claim to nearly all the disputed waters and its growing military presence has fueled concern in Japan and the West, with the United States. “The aim is to test the capability of the Izumo by sending it out on an extended mission,” said one of the sources who have knowledge of the plan. “It will train with the U.S. Navy in the South China Sea,” he added, asking not to be identified because he is not authorized to talk to the media.
