Concerning muscismagic OP and the asiantimes article Alchemst7 provided. Here are all the quotes that were in the article.
"close to the Chinese Military"
“China is signaling to the US, its allies and partners that China has an answer to America’s aircraft-carrier strike groups, an answer that is always available and not dependent on deployment schedules,”
“In effect, China is saying, ‘If the US puts two carriers in the South China Sea, we send aircraft carrier-killer missiles there.’”
“no fly zone”
“a holy # moment for the United States.”

Probably nothing. We all know how much Chinese people likes fireworks.

Just curious, these warning shots, how do they do it? Do they lock on to a carrier, fire then self destruct? Or shoot over them? Or far enough away the carrier knows it's not a threat? Sounds like a dangerous game to play.
