    Somehow, I don't think this will turn out like naval action in The Sand Pebbles.

    Apparently this has been going on for a while, now, with the mapping ships. Fairly stupid of China; the ships are in international waters.

    We'll get Admiral Alley on the case and rock their world.
     
  8. I was thinking more of The Bedford Incident.
     

  9. If our ships are in fact mapping ships. Isn't China claiming they we are spying on them?
    Which isn't too far-fetched.
     
  10. I'd be more shocked if they WEREN'T spying.
    Which reminds me of the West Wing episode about the missing US sub off North Korea.

    LEO

    ALBIE
    And tell 'em what? You've got causus belli?
    BARTLET
    Cause for war. Little thing called Latin. Albie, if we tell North Korea we've violated their
    waters it could be interpreted as an act of war?
    ALBIE
    It is an act of war.
