Ii is known without a doubt that Obama told the navy to allow this type of action? Maybe it was the officers on the ship who made the decision.

"but what will the response from the administration be?"

Never fear, Obama just sent them some Ginger Bread cookies. All is well.

On the dark side, I am betting there is a plan in place in case a USS Pueblo event happens again.

The Pentagon is pissed.

www.nytimes.com...



The incident is the second this week in the South China Sea, coming just after China signaled on Thursday that it had installed weapons on disputed islands that it would use to repel threats.


So, they arm themselves and then steal something from a Naval vessel.


However, the current admin has the following to say...



Defense officials said on Friday that they were trying to determine if the seizure of the underwater drone had anything to do with Mr. Trump’s comments.


Yeah, the Chinese started building those islands years ago because the threat of a Trump presidency. But hey, Obamas team has to blame someone other than themselves for everything.

For those saying they should have stopped them, this is USNS Bowditch:



How exactly were they supposed to stop them?

ramming them? Lol. But seriously they need to put detonation devices on drones now to keep this from going on.

Thank you for wishing me and my future children death. That's very sweet of you.


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.



A warning shot to cease and desist would had been better. Or start putting anti theft devices on the drones that detonate if tampered with.



The anti-theft detonation is actually not bad.
I'm just not for armchair warriors throwing our troops into the flames of war
because their fake patriotic ego is bruised.



Yeah. Much better than troops anyday,and teaches a abject lesson in not stealing. As to Ewoks idea. yeah Id call our debt to china PAID IN FULL thanks to them stealing tech. SUre hope it was worth takign a drone for that cash.

Hmmm....


A Defense Department official said that the unmanned underwater vehicle was discovered missing on Thursday when the crew of the United States Navy vessel Bowditch tried to retrieve it.




www.nytimes.com...


So according to the Times, the drone was discovered "missing" only when the Bowditch went to retrieve it. So, no one saw who took it, nor do they know when it was taken.

Hide and watch.....the Obama administration will blame this on Trump taking the congratulatory phone call from Taiwan's president.

That will be the follow up rhetoric from the NYT, CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, Obama's people....and all the other liberal liars.

The USNS Bowditch is a Pathfinder class oceanographic survey ship.

I dont think those vessels carry any armaments.

Exactly. They assume the drone was stolen by the Chinese because...hey...there were Chinese in the area. (Wow...imagine that! *sarcasm).

This is too convenient for a variety of reasons. But, whatever. Trump will be blamed because he took a phone call.

As "they" say, money talks and bs walks!

IF China stole the drone (and to me that's a big IF), for every day it is not returned, we should apply your remedy!

CNN version

That small boat came up alongside and the Chinese crew took one of the drones.


The news is getting very useless.

Simple -

Give us our drone back or we recognize Taiwan.
