I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, yea, China, not cool making false land claims, and something needs to be done.
But does it have to be the US? This early on? The idea of poking the dragon scares me. Their warnings sound pretty serious.
Also, it seems a bit grotesque to send a bunch of young men and woman possibly to their grave. China might not have the best equipment in their gun safe, but they are DEFINITELY capable of sinking a destroyer if they really want to.
Could we get a escalation or will China blink?
