The US Navy has retaliated against China based on a Global Times report. News reports said China has a large stock of anti-aircraft carrier weapons and the South China Sea is fully occupied by the Chinese military. The US Navy said that they are not afraid of it.
China’s Global Times wrote in a tweet, “China has a long range of weapons such as the DF-21D and DF-26. The South China Sea is completely within the grasp of the LPA. Any American aircraft carrier in this area Activity will make PLA happy: Analyzer ”
And yet, there they are. Two @USNavy aircraft carriers operating in the international waters of the South China Sea. #USSNimitz & #USSRonaldReagan are not intimidated #AtOurDiscretion https://t.co/QGTggRjOul

Reacting to the Global Times report, a US Navy official wrote, “There are two US Navy aircraft carriers in the South China Sea. #USSNimitz and #USSRonaldReagan are not intimidated. ‘ Let me tell you that the hashtag #AtOurDiscretion was used with the answer.
The US has sent two of its aircraft carriers to the South China Sea for military exercises to the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz. The practice has long been planned, but China has also conducted military exercises near the Paracel Islands, which have been criticized by the US and other countries. The US Navy’s operations of two nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in the South China Sea region have added further strength to it. Tensions between Washington and Beijing increased in many areas, including Hong Kong.
Allegations between the two countries regarding the corona virus
The US has also continuously attacked China with the Corono virus. Washington accused Beijing of hiding information from the world. China responded to Twitter in May with a brief video stating that Washington does not listen to caution words from Beijing over the corono virus outbreak.
The animated video was posted on Twitter by the Chinese Embassy in France on Thursday and was titled “Once Upon a Virus”. The video shows China and the United States accusing each other with cartoons and figures. In the video, the Chinese side says that they reported about the discovery of a new virus in January, the US paid no attention to it.
The one minute 39 second video shows China announcing its lockdown in January and the US calling it barbaric.
