I must point out, that it would be extremely lame if WW III was started by a ship named Carl Vinson.

This is the classiest, most luxurious armada ever.  Of COURSE the Russians and Chinese are going to follow it.

They should point loud speakers towards the US fleet and play "not touching you, can't get mad" on a repeat loop.

I am not going to say the US is good here.

Korea is a drop in the bucket. China and, to a lesser extent, Penis the lesser are not helping.

That's pretty much what it amounts to when they/we do this, yeah.  I mean, there's always a chance that out of a years worth of monitoring they glean one new fact about materials construction or tech, but mostly it's that.  It's one reason I doubt the US and Russia will ever directly fire on each other anywhere in the world.  The second a shooting war kicks off we've got bases, planes, ships, missile batteries throughout the oceans and europe, the middle east, and Africa within spitting distance of each other that have been playing this game for decades.  And they're all going to open up, because if we don't they might and vice versa.  Even then, though, we'll mysteriously not cross each others borders, just everyone elses, and it would stay conventional, imo.

I do miss the days when they at least respected us enough to pretend it was a rusty fishing trawler that just happened to be in the area and in no way was there an Elint sub lurking under it and it's surprisingly badly tuned engines.

Last week, the Last week, the Chinese government warned that the mutual saber-rattling by Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Il Sung could spark "war at any moment" and urged both parties to cool their rhetoric.

Oh shiat! The North Koreans have figured out how to reanimate the dead.  Retreat!  Retreat!

Seriously though, Raw Story, are your writers that ignorant that they don't know who is in charge in North Korea?  Holy shiat.  That's like referring to FDR as the current American President.  What type of idiots do you have writing this shiat?

It being started by a living cheeto doesn't exactly sit great for me either for that matter.
 
2017-04-17 04:00:06 AM  
I mean... sure?

That's what "international waters" means, they're allowed to do that and, frankly, they really should given the proximity to both Russian and Chinese territorial waters.  Real Chinese waters, even, not the bullshiat fake island crap that nobody's buying.

If China was running fleet exercises this close to California we'd have some observation craft chilling with them, too.

I'd say the Chinese ships shadowing the carrier are a good thing.  Kim Jong Un is far less likely to do something stupid and akin to an area of effect weapon when Chinese troops are nearby.  If those ships break off, well...

Then we have a farking problem.

North Korea does need to be prevented from developing a nuke that can be delivered on an ICBM and prevented from developing an ICBM and China is pretty much alone in the world in being able to stop NK from that goal through diplomatic pressure. I just wish someone else, almost anyone other than Trump, was in charge right now.

Yeah! How dare they monitor a US carrier strike group thats in international waters in their neck of woods. Insanity.

I stopped reading when I read the hyperbolic word choice in the headline.

Russia and China send ships to chase US carrier in waters off Korean peninsula as tensions mount

Its not not like this is some cold war shiat; the Russians and Chinese want our Dear Leader to be reigned in just as much as we do (if for different reasons).

This is why you have 20 destroyers ready to join the fleet. just because. And oh, we had 20 spares that we could deploy into action in this region in a few days.

So what was you concern?
