Washington Provokes Beijing By Flying 2 B-52 Bombers Over South China Sea

So far, simmering tensions between the US and Chinese Navy in the South China Sea haven't had much of an impact on trade-deal talks. But that doesn't mean investors should just ignore the US's increasingly provocative "freedom of navigation" operations in the contested region that is also a vital chokepoint for one third of global trade.
