The blink reference comes from a game.

You face each other looking into your opponents eyes and the first one to blink loses.

They already did near Alaska when the tard in chief was visiting.
They are also going to arrive in port in Florida.
If they are dumb enough to shoot then, GOOD bye Chinese navy .

Those islands are outside the recognized EEZ of China, and are in international waters. Any nation has the right to pass through the 12 mile limit at any time, even with warships. China has as much right to sail through the US 12 mile limit as the US has to sail through the Chinese 12 mile limit.

China is trying lay claim to just about every island in the chain. Our destroyers will be miles from china mainland. They will however be within 12 miles of international waters illegally claimed by china. The man made islands China is making are from grinding up the coral reefs for sand!!!
Apparently western media is very rarely allowed to see what is going on out there.
A good report here.

I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, yea, China, not cool making false land claims, and something needs to be done.

But does it have to be the US? This early on? The idea of poking the dragon scares me. Their warnings sound pretty serious.

Also, it seems a bit grotesque to send a bunch of young men and woman possibly to their grave. China might not have the best equipment in their gun safe, but they are DEFINITELY capable of sinking a destroyer if they really want to.


China has equivalent arms power.

The Reagan is in port in Japan. They just got there and are still in the process of completing the transfer or port activities.

Since most of it is stolen

The same thing that went wrong when the P-8 overflew the islands through the Chinese ADIZ that they claim in the area.

They gain nothing in a war with the USA and it would ultimately end them when all was said and done.
I agree with the sabre rattling. Though I bet secretly China would love to stomp us and if they had the best toys on top of conventional weapons they certainly would try.

Who told you that ?
They really don't at all,if they WANT to see the US in a war, a burning carrier will do that RATHER quickly.
China can protect local real estate alone, NOT oppose the world wide US navy fleet.

China would never engage the US in war crimes, we already have that down pat, they are smart enough to amass allies and let the US exhaust its arms and eventually self destruct itself and credibility in democracy rhetoric. Having served on two Naval vessels, one amphib (lhd) and a DDG (arleigh burke class) recently, i can tell you that we are getting very exhausted.

Yes and no. It's their island, but unlike other territory, it doesn't get the 12 mile limit, or the EEZ surrounding it. So anyone has the right to fly over or sail past it at any time.

You can't build artificial islands and pretend you have a 12nm radius of no go zone for the rest of the world. Someone has to challenge this ridiculous BS.
