Citing WWII Experience, Pentagon Suggests U.S. Has the Technical and Expert Capacity ‘Take Down’ China’s Man-Made Islands

Responding to questions on China and the South China Sea tensions, a Pentagon official cited U.S. experience in island campaigns in the Pacific, saying that the military has the technical and expert know-how to “take down” these small islands. 

The Pentagon’s Joint Staff director tempered these statements, adding that this was a statement of “historical fact” and not a political message to China.
