East China Sea - U.S. Interference


U.S. bombers entered the East China Sea air-defence identification zone, not prepared for defence and without notifying China.

According to The Wallstreet Journal which is quoting U.S. officials, a pair of B-52 bombers flew over disputed islands in the East China Sea without informing Beijing. This can be seen as a direct challenge to China and its establishment of its recently declared air-defence zone.

According to another Chinese news service, referring to U.S. officials and a Washington Times article, both B-52 bombers should have taken off at Guam airbase and entered China's air-defence zone on November 25 at about seven o'clock in the evening. They carried no weapons and were not accompanied by any fighter escort.
