This was in international waters. This is a warship that is taking something from a US maritime vessel.



In the latest encounter in international waters in the South China Sea region, the USNS Bowditch was sailing about 100 miles off the port at Subic Bay when the incident occurred, according to the official. Bowditch had stopped in the water to pick up two underwater drones. At that point a Chinese naval ship that had been shadowing the Bowditch put a small boat into the water. That small boat came up alongside and the Chinese crew took one of the drones.


This to me is as very overt act that could lead to worse things as we as heightened tensions in the region. Was the US spying...I am sure...but what will the response from the administration be?

From this admin?? Some quiet grandstanding and blowing of hot air, followed by no action at all. Next Admin though,?? There will be weapons targeted with warnings to immediately return the property within 60 seconds or they will come under fire.

Come on Trump, give the military balls again!

I think the military has its balls intact for the most part, but their higher ups like Obama won't give them the green light.

Our command structure needs a set though.

You really think that's so? Under Reagan's military A Russian Navy vessel rammed CG-48 USS Yorktown and there was no retribution or weapons targeted. You would risk a war between two super powers for a remote operated vehicle? That's ridiculous. Hell we salvaged part of a Russian submarine in the 60's without causing a war. source


So it's ridiculous to think that we would go to war for a silly recon drone.

Yeah? And what would you want the coming administration to do?
Sink the ship? Start a war?
Careful what you ask for.
Your messiah may just grant it.

The strangest part of all of this....
China steals a drone right in front of us and we watch.
Russia may or may not have released DNC wrong doings....and there must be action.
WTH is going on?

Well he is in commander a chief. A spineless one at that, until recently when partisan politics came into play. You're right they're all his fault. Thanks for recognizing that darling.

Well if you get your way I hope you and your children are enlisted.
I mean if we're going to send troops to die I would at least prefer them
to be yours first. Go correct all our ills through mutually assured destruction.
My heroes.

Wouldn't surprise me if Obama/Clintons told them they could have it in return for future favors.

Just go ahead and take it, they will stand down.

Yet I heard a woman on talk radio state Trump could start a war with China by renegotiating trade deals and recognizing Taiwan. Go figure.

It's what you're indirectly wishing on every one of us.
"Our president is a wimp because he doesn't want to start war".....
Sorry but that is precisely what you're saying.
Having a spine doesn't mean you immediately flex military power
in an effort to intimidate a foe that doesn't give a damn.
Diplomacy is real evolution. Grow up.

I didn't say that. I said he is spineless as seen through his other actions or lack there of. You tell me to grow up? Really? One should look in a mirror...good bye.
