Scuffle in the South China Sea #24

China unveiled a version of its DF-21 mobile ballistic missile with a maneuverable warhead.  This is believed to be the antiship version...upgraded.

The US warned China against using the artificial islands created by China to base and fly fighter jets from.

One of the islands made by China near Vietnam is being used as an antisubmarine helicopter base.

Even so, China's military modernization and build up is driving Asian military procurements.

The South China Sea is taking center stage at the ASEAN summit.

Vietnam, of all countries, has called on the US to take a stronger role in the South China Sea to prevent militarization.  I am sure some heads, somewhere just exploded.
