As usual there's this misnomer in the reporting: when they say China, it is really indicating that's the Commie government that's holding China hostage with their People's Liberation Army that has no hesitation on oppressing and killing Chinese people.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States urged China to observe international maritime rules on Monday after five Chinese ships harassed an unarmed U.S. Navy ship in international waters in the South China Sea.
"Our ships operate fairly regularly in international waters where these incidents took place. We are going to continue to operate in those international waters and we expect the Chinese to observe international laws around them," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told a news conference.
The other important point to be made, it should also served as a clear warning to the new administration which Americans unfortunately voted last November when they geared up to cut our defense budget in favor of give the money to community organizers: the Commies and the terrorists know only forces. If you are willingly to cut your own defense power like the power that be in Washington D.C. are planning to do, the Commies and the terrorists are only more than happy to wipe all of you out from the face of the earth!
First they ran our economy to the ground, then they try to cut our defense, all you well-meaning Americans who voted for "hope and change", now that you have seen what really is changing. Are you happy now?
