Pentagon Warns of Conflict Over Chinese Buildup on Disputed Island ! Beijing asserts Scarborough Shoal is Chinese territory !!
China’s plans to build up a disputed island near the Philippines could lead to a regional conflict, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Thursday.

Carter was asked about the strategic significance of China’s plan to add military facilities to a disputed island known as Scarborough Shoal located about 120 miles—within missile range—of Subic Bay, Philippines, where U.S. warships will be based.Carter said the Pentagon has similar views about a number of island disputes in the South China Sea, where China has been claiming most of the sea as its maritime territory and demanding that other states, including the United States, keep out of the region.Tensions have been heightened by Chinese military activities in the sea. A legal showdown is expected in the next several weeks when an international court is expected to rule in favor of the Philippines and against China’s expansive South China Sea claims.

In Beijing, a Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman bristled at U.S. opposition to the island building campaign and accused Washington of heightening tensions.To counter China’s moves, Fanell said the Navy’s Pacific Fleet should begin warship patrols at Scarborough. [link to freebeacon.com]

US Lawmaker: More Operations in South China Sea
The exercises involve Navy ships and military aircraft. In a freedom of navigation operation, they are sent to areas where other countries have tried to restrict flights or shipping. The aim is to demonstrate that the international community does not accept such restrictions.
The freedom of navigation operations have brought strong reactions from China.

China intensifies lobbying of other nations ahead of South China Sea court ruling
China is intensifying its global diplomatic campaign to win ­support ahead of an imminent international court ruling over the South China Sea disputes.

The development came yesterday as ­Beijing vowed greater cooperation and to proceed with multinational military exercises with Southeast Asian nations, but also called on countries to back its stance on the territorial disputes – putting many in a dilemma as they have to side with either China or the United States.

It is only a matter of time until something gives and all hell breaks loose.

We have;

China building islands, which are obviously for strategic military purposes.

NATO, EU and Russia butting heads.

North Korea threatening to nuke South Korea and the U.S.

Syria wanting Golan Heights back from Israel, with Russia aiding them in the ongoing fight there against rebels and ISIS in the region.

Iran strangely silent as of recent, like when you know one of your kids are up to no good because all of the sudden you can't hear them.

Cuba coming out of the cold.

Japan with it's ongoing problems, I.e. fukushima, earthquakes, and China territorial disputes.

ISIS and other factions terrorizing people globally.

Illegals, refuges and immigrants on the move globally.

That just cover only a small segment of some of the players in what is an obvious escalation into major global pandemonium.

It doesn't even touch on the policies being pushed or the other myriad internals and externals spiraling out of control.

Debt, Trade Policies, Earth Changes, Drought, Natural Disasters, Politics, Government Corruption, Religious Agendas, Poverty Issues, Technology, Science, Moral Decay, and Conflict Escalations on Multiple Global Borders to name many issues, are all simultaneously reaching a fever pitch.

All it takes is one little spark at the right moment and place to set this whole powder-keg of a world alight.
