    JUST-IN: Chinese Naval vessel Intercepts US Warship!! Defense Analysts call Congress

    Though I've been told repeatedly here by the resident IR professionals that China isn't trying to provoke hostilities, here's yet another provocation.




    A Chinese naval vessel tried to force a U.S. guided missile warship to stop in international waters recently, causing a tense military standoff in the latest case of Chinese maritime harassment, according to defense officials.

    The guided missile cruiser USS Cowpens, which recently took part in disaster relief operations in the Philippines, was confronted by Chinese warships in the South China Sea near Beijing’s new aircraft carrier Liaoning, according to officials familiar with the incident.

    “On December 5th, while lawfully operating in international waters in the South China Sea, USS Cowpens and a PLA Navy vessel had an encounter that required maneuvering to avoid a collision,” a Navy official said.

    Does the USA allow Chinese cruisers to get close to our aircraft carriers located near our coast?
