The same way Vhine passed by the US within 12 miles but continued on their way? Are you an idiot? Thats what these countries do...they dont "camp out" there. China said if the US tested the zone they would respond...well the US tested and China DIDNT.


I'm sorry it was China, never heard of a country called Vhine...

Peace

The US invited the Australian Navy with them to the China Sea.

Australia said, umm ahh? we`ve got a birthday or something to attend I think that night, but thanks anyway.

Thanks, cheers for the info. I looked it up after that and read it properly.
Of course, you're quite correct

I'm a bit slow off the mark sometimes, but I get there eventually.

It is not even certain the USS Lassen actually sailed inside the 12Nmile that China set up. This all lasted for about 1 houer.

And China did send a spanking letter to Obama. They told him to be carefull.

So the US wants to open the next front?

Once upon the time, there was a little austrian lunatic racist here in europe, he tried the same thing...
He messed around with the whole world, opened one front after another, and in the end germany became occupied by the Allies, which all left us alone, except the US, that occupies us till today.

Who will occupy the USA after it´s failed attempt to rule the world?

Updates: It seems China is not very happy with the move by the US navy ship, as expected and China's foreign minister has responded.

Tension as US warship sails by China's disputed islands


The foreign ministry in Beijing has condemned the operation as "illegal" and a "threat to China's sovereignty," and has vowed to "resolutely respond to any country's deliberately provocative actions".

After confirming that the ship had sailed within the disputed area, a US defence official said this was just the first in a series of freedom-of-navigation exercises aimed at testing Beijing's territorial claims.


Whatever that means, I can't really tell this political gibberish from China, but it looks as though they aren't letting it happen again.

But, wait, here's more news of what the US thinks about touring China's artificial islands.


"This is something that will be a regular occurrence, not a one-off event," said a US official. "It's not something that's unique to China."


Get ready folks for WW3, this looks tense.

We should build an artificial island 12 miles off China coast and see how they like it.

Watch China dump more U.S debt on the market when and if this kicks off they have lots of ways of hurting you without sending ships to the bottom of the sea .

Cue ..... Kim jong un


China will never do this because it would be a godsend to the US. At that point the US could call it an act of war and invalidate all of the China debt.

I was thinking the exact same thing. lol

Here's the problem with this island situation, it was a bold and entitled act by China's part to even build the island in the first place.

This is only the beginning we are in for some real world problems soon.

News just in, about Australia`s involvement.

Defence experts warn Australia will face pressure to join US on mission to probe China's artificial islands



"It won't go away; it will simply continue... there will be much more pressure upon Australia to get involved on the US side," he said.

Defence Minister Marise Payne has issued a warning to China that Australia will continue to cooperate with the US on maritime security.

In a written statement, Ms Payne said while Australia was not involved in the current exercise, the government strongly supported freedom of navigation, including in the South China Sea.


They are going to continue poking, as FormOfTheLord just posted.

Let's just go the appeasement route and let China do what they want. That's always worked in the past.
