Global Shipping Routes

In case you missed it. This is very cool.

During World War II, the Allies surrounded Japan with submarines and sank their merchant ships in order to decimate the country’s economy. Operation Starvation finished the job by laying mine fields in Japanese ports and shipping routes. It’s tough to be an island.

I can see why China is fighting for control over the South China Sea as well as the Senkaku Islands. That’s where all its shipping routes are.
