At the same time that China is threatening foreign airlines like America's Delta and American Airlines and Australia's Quantas airlines to not list Taiwan as a separate country on their company's websites, it has been confirmed that China's military is using lasers to attack U.S. aircraft flying over East Africa, near the country of Djibouti. Two U.S. pilots have received eye injuries from the attacks. Couple this with the harassment of U.S aircraft over international waters in the South China Sea and it's insistence on expanding it's ADIZ (Air Defense Identification Zones) near Taiwan and Japan and a pattern emerges. Just as it is not interested in freedom of navigation in the South China Sea for foreign vessels it is also not interested in freedom of aviation in international airspace. These are all troubling signs as the communist party continues to tighten controls in every aspect of society even banning 14 million of it's own citizens from travel based on comments the officially atheist government doesn't approve of.
