The US has flown two B-52 bombers over disputed islands in the East China Sea in defiance of new Chinese air defence rules, officials say.

Obama is sending a clear message to China: We will roam if we want to, roam around the world.

I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks.

nuclear bombers? really? We tried nuclear planes, they didn't work

It's not like China can attack us.. we're their best customer.

It would like WalMart launching SCUDs against the local trailer park.

They're not "nuclear bombers" if they're not carrying nukes.

I bet those trailer park refugees would be willing to work for less than minimum wage.

Hang on, I'm writing up a business plan.

We're also defending our rock lobster fisheries in the area.

So let me get his straight...they're having a dispute over less than 3 square miles of islands?

How about we bomb them back into the ocean and we call it a day.

Were they armed with nukes or not?

Normally such matters are not confirmed or denied.

Read up on the defensive uses of HAARP. There's a reason we stopped giving a damn about an orbit-based anti-missile platform ("Star Wars")

Personally, I won't be losing any sleep over a threat from China or any other b*tch a*s country that thinks they can challenge the United States of America.

And nothing says "don't worry, we're just flying over" your hot brown underwear zone like a B-52, oh, 2 B-52's, which exist solely to dump massive ordnance on targets below.

More accuirately, they is a dispute over who owns the rights to the nearby oilfields. They will fall into the Exclusive Economic Zone of whomever owns the islands, which noone gives a shiat about otherwise.

Well, it's good that you're fine, and - and I'm fine. I agree with you. It's great to be fine. [Laughs] Now then, Li, you know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the bomb. The BOMB, Li. The hydrogen bomb. Well now, what happened is, uh, one of our base commanders, he had a sort of - Well, he went a little funny in the head. You know. Just a little funny. And uh, he went and did a silly thing..."

Where were the lines drawn after WW2? Japan jumped into the American sphere faster than a Go-Bot in a Zero, so anything agreed to back then should hold now. China is a little late to the game, but they have been working out....

The "East China Sea Air Defense Zone" is not China, subby. It's an area of international waters that China has unilaterally laid claim to. Sort of how Libya drew a "line of death" across the Gulf of Sidra back in '81. They were right, it WAS a line of death, but only for Libyans. I doubt the Chinese are going to push it beyond a bit of buzzing.

Unlike Russia, the US doesn't have a land border with China over which those screaming Chinamen can run.

Because China doesn't have enough ships to ferry them all over.

Unarmed for a bomber like that means that the codes have not been uploaded and doesn't mean that the plane did not have any nuclear weapons onboard. It just means if the pilots wanted to they could not use the weapons.

They don't care about the land. They care about the mineral and fishing rights. Own the Senkakus, and you wind up owning a big old natural-gas deposit. Plus, you can push your claims to other little rocks in the East and South China seas, like the ones in dispute with the Philippines.
