There seems to be a growing dispute between China and South Korea over the potential deployment of THAAD anti-missile systems to the Peninsula. Does China have a leg to stand on, as it places air defense assets in the SCS, a place that China regards as its own sovereign territory? Doesn't South Korea have the right to provide for its defense as it sees fit? I can understand that China doesn't want a powerful radar system so close to the Yalu, but I feel that China should do more then to reign in its "Ally" North Korea. If anything, the actions of North Korea will only guarantee the strength of the US-ROK Alliance and guarantee strategic defenses are found on the Peninsula. I am curious what are the views/opinions of members here on this issue.
