What can you expect from a regime of thieves like that of the dying Chinese Communist Party dictatorship?

They probably just wanted to board like pirates to steal from American sailors.

LOL only warmongering or nationalist idiots would think USA has act rationally in this matter.
The PLAN destroyer which confronted the USN cruiser is in fact part of the China Naval Fleet performing their testing in South China Sea.

USN is playing dangerous game as the mentioned Chinese warship with their latest VLS hypersonic missiles can easy sink it from distance beyond their meaning USA RADAR.

This is called TESTING the limit of China patience as they know China will practice restraint and will not fire on her. And what do USA gain by provoking China inside China turf. STUPID USA policy will promote tension in the region.

I advocate a similar response in the future for China towards USA i.e. to send China surveillance planes, warships to ply close to USA coast, trail USA warship or enter the Bay of Mexico and after that I just love to see USA news Media response or their demonization..

Tell me, how would USA react if a Chinese destroyer does that to them during a US naval exercise recently.

The TRUTH this action proves that there are no more capable leadership in USA e.g. General Chuck Hagel can be described as a shortsighted fool with little knowledge on the ART OF WARFARE and China today is certainly not afraid of USA any more.

SO what really happen?

USA send her Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser Cowpens USN 63 to trail and spied on China Naval Aircraft Carrier Fleet which is performing her sea trial in South China Sea and claimed that since it is international water, USN has every right to be there.

From the international sea law point of view, USA may appear to be right but USA herself has in setting precedent in the past against rival navies has WRONG her meaning that USA today has shot herself in the foot again. USA cannot have it both ways!

Whatever USA may says, all nation in the region viewed USA action as provocative just like the EP3 Spy Plane affair many year ago.

The USN Cowpens is more than 10,000 miles away from USA and next cruising next to China doorstep. Tell us who do you think Asian like us will consider the aggressor in this case?

USA pivot in Asia is already causing discord and distrust among ASEAN nations as US ally Singapore may be considered as a unknown factor more likely a hostile state to the two larger Muslim neighbors in event of a war involving Australia and Indonesia.

That is why Japanese PM Abe is getting no where in trying to recruit ASEAN to side with her against China. Indonesia Susilo Bambang is passively reminding and warning Japan that Japan cannot get anywhere without sitting in a dialogue with China. Pledging USD20 billion is chicken feed today considering the amount China has invested in the region and Abe forcing ASEAN to side with her is irresonsible and dangerous.

"Despite Japan's generous aid package, many of Tokyo's suggestions targeting China were not included in the joint statement released on Saturday, due to opposition by ASEAN, Kyodo News Agency said.

"The word 'threat', in alluding to China's actions in the South China Sea, was not written into the statement, because senior officials from Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia disagreed with the expression suggested by Japan at a pre-summit meeting on Thursday in Tokyo," the Japanese agency reported.
The phrase "freedom of overflight" in the statement was changed from "freedom of overflight over the high seas" in the draft because the Southeast Asian side indicated that "the words 'over the high seas' could be taken as a specific measure focusing on China's air defense identification zone", Kyodo reported."

Many of you may not remember the downing of KAL007 Korean Airliner by the Soviet where USA on purpose tried to deceive and test the Soviet Radar response, the presence of her SPY PLANE which is almost similar to the KAL007 as cover. But they did not expects the Russian to be totally ruthless and shot down the plane.

China send a TANK LANDING SHIP 933 to obstruct the UNS Cowpens. In event of a collision, the UNS Cowpens may be cripple or even sink because of her thin steel plate compared with China TLS and China can afford to lose the TLS as she has more than 27 of them.

And that would cost USA as the Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruisers are reputed to be very expensive.

BTW the Russian defender openly blamed USAF for deliberately flying their SPY PLANE so close to Russian border to confuse them.
SO when KAL007 intruded into Russian Airspace, the Russian ordered it to be shot down think it is a USAF SPY PLANE.

While the Russian got the blame, the culprit USA military got away scot free.
