Beijing appeared to up the ante in the South China Sea on Friday by releasing footage of its H-6K nuclear-capable bombers landing on artificially made islands in disputed waters — and it sends a clear message that it dominates the region.

China has claimed sovereignty to the waters of the South China Sea, but US refused to recognize it.

Recent moves from Beijing show that facts in the water have outpaced US determination.

The flight of the bombers comes after China reportedly deployed missiles and radar-jamming systems to the islands.
