On the foreign policy frontier a new development seems to be taking root. Japanese and US special forces have been ignoring China’s most recent air defense zones. The zones have expanded to include several islands at the center of dispute between Japan and China.

According to the official Xinhua news agency, quoting Chinese air force spokesman Shen Jinke, “Several combat aircraft were scrambled to verify the identities  of US and Japanese aircraft entering the air defense zone.” China has warned that if the US and Japan do not submit to the new air defense zone restrictions then both countries will face unspecified “defensive emergency measures”.

According to the US Government’s most recent U.S.-China Economic & Security Review Commission, China’s military activities and investments have been growing at an accelerating rate. China’s defense budget has increased 10% in the last 12 months alone. China has also invested in its first aircraft carrier with great success. Furthermore, China’s sea-based nuclear missile system is expected to have reached operation status. The report also cites that last May China successfully launched anti-satellite missiles into orbit. In retort, the Chinese government said that the launch was simply a scientific experiment.

Today the Pentagon responded saying that the US has no intention of altering operations, regardless of China’s latest move.

According to Shen, the Chinese  fighter jets, identified two US surveillance aircraft and 10 Japanese aircraft including an F-15 warplane. “We’ll continue to partner with our allies in the region and operate as normal,” Lieutenant-Colonel Erik Brine, a Pentagon spokesman, told AFP.

Modern warfare is unlike anything the world has known. The Game of Thrones is now one of not only brute force, but currency manipulation, technological warfare, trade restrictions, etc. As the world’s super-powers continue to antagonize one another and build their arsenals, the world remains watchful.
