China Fires Two Missiles Into Sea As "Warning To US" In Huge Escalation Following Spy Plane Breach

Chinese media and regional sources are reporting what appears to be the biggest provocation yet amid the months-long US-China ratcheting tensions in the South China Sea.

"China launched two medium-range missiles into the South China Sea on Wednesday morning, a source close to the Chinese military said, sending a warning to the United States," The South China Post reports in a major breaking development.

The launch is said to be in response to the major incident from Tuesday, wherein China's PLA military angrily denounced that a US U-2 spy plane allegedly entered a 'no-fly zone' off China's coast while the PLA conducted live-fire military drills. It was unclear exactly where the claimed breach of airspace happened, however.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that this administration will not continue to play "picador" with China, because there is a point in time when it will feel it cannot allow things to escalate past a point of no return, as that will cause China to "lose face", something which will have them ready to fight.
