    It is normal to observe US naval 'presence' in the Pacific to include activities off Japan, Korea, Russia and so on.

    However to base ships in Continental East Asia does indicate that the US is taking the muscle flexing and aggressive illegal claims in the SCS by China as a serious threat to peace, stability and harmony in Asia.

    Apparently there is good reasons through intelligence to indicate for the US to believe that actions of China now and in the future is detrimental to the interests of the littoral nations in particular and world, in general.

    Is China ratcheting up the chaos in the SCS a notch or two?

    Or are the ships being based to patrol alongside China's coast to pick up intelligence off China or even activate instruments to engage China and bring China down a notch or two?

    Or is the Obama trying to offset Guilliani's message - “(Obama) doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country"?
