4. it's international airspace

these articles make it sound like some kind of invasion. this exercise isn't that unusual. If the US keeps militarizing the straits with increased patrols and keeps arming up Taiwan, this air activity will increase. Typically US forces don't stay long in the area and then a Chinese exercise takes place and the western press gets all alarmist. I don't think the planned doubling of Indo Pacific budgets is going to be able to change this pattern. And the US plans to deploy more offensive missile forces in the area will only make it worse.
