BEIJING/HONG KONG: A US navy warship sailed close to a disputed reef in the South China Sea on Tuesday, a US Department of Defense official said, prompting anger in Beijing which denounced the patrol as illegal and a threat to peace and stability.
Guided missile destroyer the USS William P. Lawrence travelled within 12 nautical miles of Chinese-occupied Fiery Cross Reef, Defense Department spokesman Bill Urban said.
It''s a good move. But it must be intensified with lot more frequent sailings.
There is no any international border for US ships
CHINA MUST STOP USING FORCE TO ENFORCE THEIR TERRITORIAL CLAIMS IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA! JAI HIND!
Hope US should be able to stop China''s expansion in that area
very late already!
China is helpless
I hope China sails a war ship near Miami,Then see how the yanks like it.The Usa not the police of the world and they should keep its nose out of other people''s business.Look what they have done to the Mid East and Vietnam
US Department of War at work.
US is taunting China and China is ducking the issue as it cant do anything about it. America is playing cat and mouse game with China
Middleeast : done, asia: started?
China wants to dominate the whole sea
China is no match with USA. It cant do much for it
Its better, if you both fight with each other.
US ships can move anywhere in the world
"The timing is interesting, too. It is a show of U.S. determination ahead of President Obama''s trip to Vietnam later this month," Storey added
china should blast off US ship then entire world will respect her
Not good for world peace
