    This is just pointless posturing. The most practical thing to do is tell the Chinese to knock it off and just keep doing our usual activities.

    If we're lucky, they will all be as minimal as this.
    Have we all already forgotten the airplane incident in 2001 when the Chinese jet fighter provoked a confrontation when a US plane was operating legally in international airspace?

    Saw that after I made the post. I wonder how many others remember? I also remember being at the Atlanta Fourth of July Parade that year where the pilot of the plane was honored.

    I disagree with this "honoring".

    I am not happy with that pilot.

    That pilot delivered that plane and those personnel into enemy hands when he should have just ditched into the sea, you know, that big blue thing beneath him that the U.S. Navy OWNS. He took directives from a foreign government, and delivered U.S. property to them. He should have put the plane in the drink, where any idiot know the U.S. navy will win the rescue race.

    Voidwar is right though...we should have locked down every Chinese vessel in our ports the minute they took that aggressive stance with the plane. "Sure, China, you can have that plane. But all these vessels and the goods they were carrying now belong to the US government. We advise you to not enter our airspace or shipping lanes again."

    I was actually at the same airbase that plane flew its mission from in Japan. We even went down there to that squadron to pick up some ground support equipment from them that day.

    Yeah, because pointless crap like that is worth completely obliterating our economy over.

    "Sure, China, you can have that plane. But all these vessels and the goods they were carrying now belong to the US government. We advise you to not enter our airspace or shipping lanes again."
    And the Chinese response is "Thats fine. Now pay up all the debt that you owe us". Then our economy sinks likes a child actors career after puberty.

    Overreacting to posturing is stupid. The U.S. and China have absolutely nothing to gain by fighting each and everything to lose. Unless China does something that is actually a threat, taking drastic action is harmful to our country.
