WASHINGTON: Five Chinese Navy ships are sailing in international waters in the Bering Sea off Alaska, the Pentagon said, in an apparent first for China's military that came as US President Barack Obama toured the US state.
Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said it was the first time the United States had seen Chinese navy ships in the Bering Sea.
"We respect the freedom of all nations to operate military vessels in international waters in accordance with international law," Davis said.
China's defence ministry, in a short statement sent to Reuters, said the ships were in the Bering Sea as part of a routine drill following the completion of exercises with Russia.
China is now the new global power.
We are ourselves increasing the might of China by buying cheap chinese material. If we stop it China will not be able to fund its huge PLA and would eventutally start degrowing.
indians are very cowards, normally you say that religions have no importance and when it comes to save your life, you start connecting relations somehow with dangerous enemy. I studied in oxford history that Hindu landlords also offered their virgin daughters to British commanders to maintain their position during British rule in India..
we too need to develop the capabilities...
China , the new world power.
During those 300 years of British rule, there never lived more than 3000 britishers here.... ample proof that it is the indian landlords who not only offered their daughters to the britishers but their mother nation too.... aah ... the land of Krishna..

China surely flexing its muscles!! USA better be alert and vigilant to Chinese designs.
China is very powerful, no doubt about it. US will face trouble of handling China and it will be a neck-to-neck fight. But what's about India's defense capabilities?
It will be very interesting to see this new emerging dynamics and how US handle the challenge to its sole superpower status

USA should have ignored the movement of Chinese ships
