Chinese ships 'harass' US vessel:

Quote from: AP
The US ship sprayed one Chinese vessel with water from fire hoses to try to force it away, it said.

But it said the Chinese crew stripped to their underwear and carried on approaching to within 25ft (8m).

:enraged: Those tightey whitey rapscallions!

I really hope this doesn't start a war. Not just because that would probably end in nuclear holocaust, but even if it didn't, can you imagine having the "USNS Impeccable" being in the history books? That's almost lame enough to be a name for a Canadian ship*.

*for those less versed in Canadian history, one of our first naval vessels was called the HMCS Rainbow::(:

On the flip side, I would say that British Royal Navy ships probably have the highest overall composite level of awesomeness-of-name of any navy in the history of this earth.

They've had a several hundred year start of naval history during which to cycle through all the stupidest words in the native language.

I wouldn't want a war started over MOONING, either.  It's already dumb enough when a ship blows up and sinks and starts a war over vague accusations of who killed everyone on board.  This would just be horribly, horribly petty and the more I think about it the less humor there is in it. =/

I am almost willing to side with China in this case:  Where was the impeccible each time the Chinese encountered the vessel? 

Remember back to the time the chinese forced a US spy plane to land in China...  They don't like being spied upon, and will retaliate with grace and dignity as they have these days.

We're not one to talk.  We named a ship after a crazy, doddering old grandpa of an actor.  Sure he became president later, but still.

Thad, hurry up and become President so Katestory XVI can come to pass.

So I don't know if anyone's seen this yet but Chinese spy ring exposed... spying on the Dalai Lama and exiled Tibeteans.

I mean I actually find this hilarious and reassuring. Instead of any of the ten thousand more effective things they could use a muahahah diabolical international spy ring for, Chinese leadership has choosen to pander to their deluded paranoia. Not that Tibet isn't something that they have to keep tabs on, but anyone following the issue knows the Chinese leadership has completely failed to grasp any part of the the problem they face in any kind of realistic way.

Anyway, I doubt this is their only international intel ring, but still...

EDIT: Also, I predict that once again the entire planet will turn a blind eye and just let it go.

Yeah, I think the global reaction is just going to be an eyeroll and a "Oh like we didn't see that coming."

I was expecting some sort of super-saver deal. "Today only: kill eight nine-year-olds for the price of one!

US files a WTO case against China

So. A guantlet has finally been thrown. Granted this may come to nothing at all, it's interesting that a formal stand of any kind has finally been taken against China's longstanding double-standards in international trade.

We shall see.

One thought that I had: It's funny that this is a WTO challenge. Yes, a big part of China joining the WTO was to reap the advantages without having to reciprocate (which is pretty much what happened), but it was also very much a prestige thing.

Like the resentful fellow who wants to be a Club Member, the focus was always on getting in. Never mind those pesky rules - they don't really enforce those for the elect, do they?

Had they stayed out, there would certainly have been some negative economic consequences, but they would be mostly immune to a lot of the (quite valid) charges that have been brewing for some time.
