Simple -

Give us our drone back or we recognize Taiwan.


Ooo...that's a good one!


Or how about we just say that the cost is equal to the debt we owe them, so we're now even. Sorry, no returns for UUVs.

The Chinese vessel should have been intercepted and sunk.

Building Islands. Pretty cool. While we rot away with war.



Sounds pretty good doesn't it.

Up until you see all the war machines on those islands.

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.




And why would that foe give a damn about diplomacy unless it solely benefitted him. *cough* Iran

Having a spine also doesn't mean relying on diplomacy with individuals talking from both sides of their mouths.
How about you grow up and realize that.

We are not declaring war, we would only be using force against a military target making an unwise theft of property. Firing on the ship after its refusal to return property is an appropriate course of action IMO. This was not an accidental allegedly) ramming or a salvage op from a sunken vessel. This was outright brazen theft of military technology in International waters.

Turkey and Russia did not go to war over a shot down jet and dead soldiers. China would not go to war over a shot up ship. But they may think twice about stealing technology from open waters again.


Opening fire, or drawing weapons on a ship in international waters could be considered an act of war. In the interest of saving face, it would be interpreted as such by Chinese heads of state. The ramifications for this would affect almost everything that you buy, drive, hear, or touch. Do you really think it's worth it for a piece of technology that probably is built with 50% or more of parts made in China?

China might not go to war...but they could impose economic sanctions and stop selling to the US, or stop purchasing US goods, or increase efforts in hacking (which they have had good results thus far.)

Tensions are already high in the South China Sea, pointing weapons or firing shots across the bow is a way to take high tensions and create a small skirmish which could escalate into something quite a bit larger. Both skippers of their respective vessels knew this...most people know this.

I forgot about that...didn't we allow a piece of tech to be stolen a few years back...only it had a virus in it? I forget if that was the case or not.

Trump needs to tell china our debt it now paid in full due to them stealing technology. Its not required to repay someone who steals from you.

It 'might' be a response to an agreement the U.S. has signed with Australia to operate F-22s and other aircraft out of Northern Australia during 2017 rather than any phone call with Taiwan. There are/will be (?) marines stationed in Australia as well.

You're right Wardaddy F it all.
Let's go to war with everyone.
You first.
You carry the avatar of an actor pretending to be a solider.
I hope you're a real one and you feel encouraged to be in the front lines.



As for Iran - Trump says he will renegotiate that deal.
Iran says it will not listen to any negotiations
and the terms are final.

You just may get that war you're so thirsty for.

That's laughable. At this point China could sell the debt that the US has to them for pennies on the dollar and basically ruin our economy. If the US declared it's debt to china "paid in full" the same thing would happen.

Imagine that, a super power spending money on war machines. "Building" has such a nice ring to it. Wish our country could do some building instead of bombing.
