 Editor's note: The Swimming Dragon's "bird farm" has been dispatched to the South China Sea, intentionally or not further intimidating China's neighbors who are tying to hang onto their lawfully defined ocean Exclusive Economic Zones. Reuters has the story at : http://in.reuters.com/article/2013/11/26/china-defence-idINL4N0JB1CO20131126

"Nov 26 (Reuters) - China sent its sole aircraft carrier on a training mission into the South China Sea on Tuesday amid maritime disputes with some neighbours and tension over its plan to set up an airspace defence zone in waters disputed with Japan.

The Liaoning, bought used from Ukraine and refurbished in China, has conducted more than 100 exercises and experiments since it was commissioned last year but this is the first time it has been sent to the South China Sea." http://in.reuters.com/article/2013/11/26/china-defence-idINL4N0JB1CO20131126
