    Really? Why? Is it only the US that's allowed to do that?

    They can sail up to a foot of our territorial waters as far as I'm concerned. We should make it our business to know exactly what they are doing while pretending to ignore them, until such time as they actually do something.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    With the US expertise at false flags, it'd be a cake walk.

    Frankly, it's the same thing whether the boats are there or not there, so there's no reason to react.
    Im with Goshin. Send out a few private cruisers...a luxury yacht or 2, throw em a little party.

    Provided of course they dont break down on the way.

    want to hear something really scary, though? the house is caving in, and we're still devoting a lot of time and resources to whatever war is on the horizon. there's always some dangerous country out there. it's somebody else's turn. this is not the foreign policy that i want my kids to have to deal with.
    Very nice, and hopefully it won't be.

    Because the US is a little nutty about preemptive strikes. I wouldn't run up to the biggest guy (Shaq) in the room and shake my fist in his face.

    Hey, I'm with you. We started a mess over there screwing around with installing regimes. But if they target us for terrorism again, some redneck US leader is going to bomb them back to camel riding.
