Rising tension as US carrier visits Yellow Sea - Wendell Minnick

Military tensions between China and the US are rising again as US aircraft carrier George Washington will join exercises with South-Korea in the Yellow Sea, writes Wendell Minnick in Defense News.
The exact date the aircraft carrier would enter the Yellow Sea was not released. The George Washington did not enter the Yellow Sea during exercises last month, supposedly after Chinese objections, but plans to do so in upcoming exercises have once again enraged Beijing.
China "won't stand for U.S. naval provocation," said Maj. Gen. Luo Yuan in an editorial published in the Aug. 9 edition of Global Times.
