China Demands End of U.S. Navy Surveillance

BEIJING — China's Defense Ministry has demanded that the U.S. Navy end surveillance missions off the country's southern coast following a weekend confrontation between an American vessel and Chinese ships.

"The Chinese side's carrying out of routine enforcement and safeguarding measures within its exclusive economic zone was entirely appropriate and legal," ministry spokesman Huang Xueping said in a statement faxed overnight to reporters.

The American empire is starting to anger the People's republic of China. We already are increasing are presence in Afghanistan and now we are pissing off the Chinese. Could this be a spark to ignite world war three? i sure hope not. im so sick of all this, we need to come home and protect ourselves from any enemy.

I have heard people say time and time again about certain factions should not poke a hornets nest unless they want to be stung.

I think China is a little more dangerous than a hornets nest and the US might want to drop the stick
