Is there any war coming between United States and China in South China Sea ? Experts are agree with my statement. South China sea soon will be a war zone between China and United States. Rising issue between both super powers can lead to world war 3 soon. As per my knowledge and prediction Gulf countries will stand with China as they know United States always finds his own interest and benefits.
China has long claimed a large swath of the nearly 1.2 million square mile South China sea as its own territory, even constructing artificial islands there, islands that the United States and its allies in the region fear could be used for military bases and air strips. The region claimed by China, around the three island chains known as the Spratly Islands, Scarborough Shoals, and the Paracels, is a major nautical trade route as well, with an estimated $5.3 trillion in global trade passing through the disputed area annually, including $1.2 trillion from the U.S. alone.
In addition, control of the region is seen by world leaders as a test of the United States and its Asian allies to respond to increased military activity by China in the area of the South China Sea.
On October 26, the U.S. sent an armed warship, the USS Lassen (pictured above, on an earlier exercise), to sail less than 12 miles from the Spratly Islands, claimed by China. China saw the incursion as a deliberate provocation, leading to the ominous predictions from China Naval Chief Wu.
“If the United States continues with these kinds of dangerous, provocative acts, there could well be a seriously pressing situation between front line forces from both sides on the sea and in the air, or even a minor incident that sparks war,” the Chinese admiral warned.
