China continues to coerce its neighbours by use of the PLAN, maritime militia and Coastguard. It is thought that if it is successful with this policy on the SCS, it will extend it against South Korea and Japan. The CCP has also transferred control of the Coastguard from the State Oceanic Body to the Central Military Commission which means now that it is a fully militarised force, more so than the likes of the US Coast Guard. This means that for all intents and purposes the white hulled ships are grey hulled ships.
