South China Sea threat: US Navy displays military might in war exercises - China on alert
THE US military has continued war training exercises near China increasing tensions in the disputed South China Sea region.
Last week, the US Air Force and Marines conducted training exercises in the area with three submarines joining ships and aircraft in the nearby Philippine Sea.
The actions are thought to be a reaction to Chinese harassment of ships drilling for resources in nearby waters.
Three US ships joined the Royal Australian Navy frigate HMAS Parramatta and sailed to the region to demonstrate a commitment to keeping the sea open.
