China is attempting to rewrite the rules of freedom of navigation, particularly in the South China Sea.
China wants to dominate trade and to do so it believes it must not allow freedom of navigation in the South China Sea for anyone.
Despite international tribunals and calls for it to stop, it continues to militarize the South China Sea, making false claims throughout those international waters that is home to several different Southeast Asian nations.
Choosing between Emperor Xi Jin Ping's China and an America that established freedom of navigation for all should be simple. It's time to reinforce those norms of geopolitical freedom on the High Seas once again.
