Obama’s Missiles Crisis Continues: China sends fighter jets to contested island in South China Sea

Obama and Kerry by Pete Souza

I have total faith in our military to handle China in any situation. 
However, Barack Obama and John Kerry are both buffoons who don’t know which way is up.  So, it’s only God’s grace that’s protecting us now, not these two clowns.    

Fox News reports in a move likely to further increase already volatile tensions in the region, China has deployed fighter jets to a contested island in the South China Sea, the same island where China deployed surface-to-air missiles last week, two U.S. officials tell Fox News.

One U.S. official put the number of Chinese warplanes in the single digits, “under ten,” he said.

The dramatic escalation came as Secretary of State John Kerry hosted his Chinese counterpart, Foreign Minister Wang Yi, at the State Department.
Wang said Tuesday he hoped that “close up” military flights and patrols by U.S. 

Navy ships over the contested islands would end.
Kerry said he wanted China to end its militarization of the contested islands in the South China Sea.

Chinese Shenyang J-11s (“Flanker”) and  Xian JH-7s (“Flounder”) have been seen by U.S. intelligence on Woody Island in the past few days, the same island where Fox News reported exclusively last week that China had sent two batteries of HQ-9 surface-to-air missiles while President Obama was hosting 10 Southeast Asian leaders in Palm Springs.
