There are surveillance ships violating Chinese and International laws.
Chinese fishing boats have had an encounter with a US Navy ship in the South China Sea.
The Pentagon said on Tuesday that the Chinese fishing boats engaged in "dangerous" maneuvers near a US Navy ship in international waters off the coast of China on Friday .
Spokesman Bryan Whitman confirmed that a pair of Chinese vessels had forced the US vessel into defensive measures. "It is unsafe and dangerous behavior and it needs to be addressed diplomatically," Whitman said.

they have been in breaking news with so many different stories the past couple of days.
its more fear mongering i think, muscle flexing, and the US is really trying to fuel the fire so to speak with China/North Korea/Iran/Pakistan/Afghanistan
we want anyone to start a war with us, or give us a reason to go bomb a country for false reasons, like the past wars

Is everybody else misunderstanding this, or is it me who is missing something? It looks like fishing boats harassed a US naval boat, that in turn called the chinese military to come chase the chinese fisherman off, which they did. Doesn't that indicate some military cooperation as opposed to tension?

Get some perspective - Americans would not tolerate chinese, russian subs, destroyers operating 12 nm off their coast, so feigning outrage at Chinas response is at the very best utterly disingenuous.
Finally pick a fight with these people and you will lose BIG TIME.
Stupid, stupid stupid approach by the yanks.
