    The U.S. Navy sent a destroyer within 12 miles of one of China's man-made islands[1] in a contested area of the South China Sea on Tuesday, a U.S. defense official told CNN.

    The operation has since concluded, the official said.

    Well that was a little bit less dramatic than I was hoping for. I wonder how much the submariners in the area have to tell about that situation that we'll never hear.
