gCaptain has just obtained photos showing a confrontation involving the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Decatur and a Chinese Navy warship in the disputed South China Sea over the weekend.

Looks a lot closer than 45 yards!
A convenient way to get some good hi-res photos of a US Navy warship.
Decatur maneuvered to avoid collision. In the Chinese mind, China won.
Their very saying it puts the lie to it.
How in the HELL does a ship from the Chinese Navy even get within 5 miles of one of our ships ?????????
>>Their very saying it puts the lie to it.<<
Obozo would have bowed to them and then ceded the entire 1 million hectares to the Chinese.
And liberal America doesn’t understand WHY we needed President Trump now.
The more I think about, the more I think the mueller “investigation” should look into GOD’s intervention into the election. Clearly He moved hearts to do what we needed when we needed it.
He also made it clear: USA — this is your last chance! You are on your own from now on!!
deep State is looking for a war to consolidate their elitist hold on the country. Damned neocons.
I see two different scenarios based on the wakes of these vessels.
Either the Chinese vessel came up from behind and passed by the Decatur on the port side, which I can’t see any good Captain to allow. Or the Decatur came up from behind, approached the stern of the Chinese vessel, and then turned to starboard.
The wakes are definitely parallel...
Another provocation by China. China holds around one trillion dollars of US debt. It would be a shame if Trump loses the paperwork on that debt.
It’s called Freedom of the Seas. Don’t much like it in this case...
Was the ship at GQ?
Was a collision alarm sounded?
Obama DID cede them the entire S. China sea. It was obvious to anyone at the time - grab what you want boys, because POTUS is an American-hating boy who won't do anything.
By indisputable they mean “by overwhelming force.” I sense Trump disputes that axiom.
Apparently, the US boat was forced out of China's territorial sea. The purpose of the US boat's presence was to dispute China's claim by passing within the 12 N mile limit.
But the GOP can say we won also. When the GOP blocked the US from ratifying the Law of the Sea Treaty, they said the US has the most powerful navy and can set our own Law of the Sea.
So what do YOU do. Fire on the PRC ship. Big assed wars have been touched off over less.
On the contrary, if the PLAN thinks the USN ship was violating their territorial limit(which is BS in this case and everyone knows it) then they could fire on the US warship. They didn't do that because this is all BS.
