The day after the B-52's flew into the contested airspace the Air Force said it wasn't a response from the Obama White House but was a training mission that was planned many months ago.
Now the spin is, it was Obama's response to the Chinese.
Who do you believe ?
Obama better be careful. Not to many months ago Obama got into a stare down with Vladimir Putin over Syria and Obama blinked.
I don't think Obama wants to get into a stare down with China's Xi Jinping. I don't think he blinks.
