The draft proposal from the US Navy recommends that the fleet conduct a series of operations during a single week next month that would involve US warships, combat aircraft and troops to demonstrate that the US can counter potential adversaries quickly on several fronts, CNN said. Although China is the recipient, the high instances of the US Defense have indicated that there is no intention of entering into combat with the Chinese, underline the sources consulted by CNN.

"We will not be intimidated and we will not stand down".

The Pentagon defended the action Sunday as part of its freedom of navigation missions, which are meant to enforce the right of free passage for USA vessels in worldwide waters as "routine" operations.

Sunday wasn't the first time that the two militaries have had a near miss in the South China Sea.

Telecoms industry sues California to kill strict net neutrality law
The suit , filed Wednesday in federal court, widens a legal challenge filed by the Justice Department on Sunday minutes after Gov. California Governor Jerry Brown, on Sunday, signed a law that re-established net neutrality in his state.

The Australian newspaper reported the US's Deputy Assistant Secretary for Defence for South and Southeast Asia, Joseph Felter, saying China aims to establish "dual-use" facilities, such as commercial ports, which could ultimately be converted to military bases.

Chunying said the situation in the South China Sea has "become better" with regional support for its sovereignty and the United States is only making things worse by choosing "to ignore the shared will of regional countries and take on one provocative operation after another".

"China is strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to that", Chunying said. Pacific Fleet spokesman Lieutenant Commander Tim Gorman declined to comment.

The proposal focuses on operations in the Pacific, but the CNN report said that they could stretch as far as the western coast of South America, where China is expanding investments and diplomatic relationships. If the initial proposal goes off well, then it could be expanded up to Russian Federation, according to CNN. "Adversarial behavior, on both sides, will increasingly characterize that".
