Reuters/Staff

“A U.S. aircraft carrier group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt has entered the South China Sea to promote ‘freedom of the seas’, the U.S. military said on Sunday, at a time when tensions between China and Taiwan have raised concern in Washington.”

USAGOLD note:  With everything else going on, most have forgotten that we still live in a world rife with geopolitical tensions including those involving the United States, China, and Taiwan. The presence of the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the South China Sea sends a message and elevates tensions.
