A recent report on the readiness of the US Navy claimed there are leadership issues within the Navy. At the same time, it's reported that China chased a US warship out of disputed seas.
China is reporting that they chased a US warship out of disputed seas:
China's military said it chased a U.S. warship out of a disputed area of the South China Sea on Monday after Washington warned an attack on the Philippines might activate a mutual defense treaty.
Beijing affirmed its claims to portions of the sea that also are claimed by Southeast Asia governments. It rejected the Biden administration's declaration of support Sunday for an international tribunal ruling in favor of the Philippines that threw out most of them.
