China condemned the United States on Wednesday as the region's greatest security "risk creator" after a U.S. warship again sailed through the sensitive waterway that separates Taiwan from China.

If they can forbid other nations from access to international waters there what will stop them from forbidding access anywhere else? Someone has to stand up for freedom of the seas and, it seems, that only the U.S. has the Navy and the courage to do it. I am quite grateful to our Naval officers and sailors for their courage and willingness to carry out such potentially dangerous missions. This is important to the world, why aren't any other nations accompanying our ships to make a very loud statement that the world will simply not tolerate China just declaring ownership over any international waters?

Does Xi need a wahbulance?

How about a wahburger and some French cries?

48 Virginia class nuclear submarines. No, really, try to invade Taiwan right now.

The Pentagon said we would be ready by 2025. By which they mean we will win. Until then, China is a threat to Taiwan and if they want, they better act now while they have Biden.

Taiwan strait isn't a sensitive waterway. It is international waters. China is sensitive. F them.

#1 Other navies aren't doing transits because they don't have the capability to respond if attacked.
Putin ordered bombs dropped near a British ship off Crimea.
Russia and China know that attacking US ships will result in the destruction of the attackers.

An alliance of democracies will make us stronger and better able to defend freedom. Isolationism is a gift to Putin, Xi and MBS.

The entire world could declare war on the U.S. combined, and the war wouldnt last 10 months before the U.S. would beat everyone back and win. That's fact. China is no threat to the U.S.

China is a threat to a feckless and indecisive U.S. public opinion, unwilling to do what it needs to do to win.

Putin ordered bombs dropped near a British ship off Crimea.

And what do you suppose would have happened had they hit it?

#7 My guess is not much, unless the US retaliated for the Brits.

The British Navy could have responded, they are not as large as the U.S. Navy but then the Russian Navy isn't either.

My guess is not much...

My guess is NATO would be at war with Russia.

"China is no threat to the U.S."

What a maroon.

Just send a Chinese task force between Hawaii and Mexico and conduct "exercises".

Boaz, you're out of your mind. That war wouldn't last 10 hours, and the whole world would lose.

Did you forget China has nukes? Did you forget there's a reason we've only ever fought proxy wars against nuclear states?

Communist China's bellicose rhetoric is for domestic consumption. Even they must know they're FOS.

I wouldn't really be a huge fan of Chinese warships "navigating" the Florida Keys, so I can see where they're coming from.

I kinda doubt they are going to ram another spy plane though.

China and Russia can erase US Military and political leadership in 10 minutes. If there is a war, it will end civilization, which is the main reason there hasn't been a full scale war between nuke powers.

I like the idea of generals dying first.

We might squawk a little, but would probably love it. Getting a close up look at their weapons, operations and tactics.

Just like they are doing?

And then I bet we farted in China's general direction as we floated away.
