China vs US ‘sea-to-shining-sea’

19 Dec

It happened now and it will happen again: a near-collision between an American and a Chinese naval vessel in the South China Sea.

The USS Cowpens, a 10,000-ton guided-missile cruiser, got \”too close\” to a drill involving the Liaoning, China\’s first aircraft carrier, and its carrier task force, according to the Global Times.

The US Pacific Fleet stressed that the cruiser had to take emergency measures to avoid a collision. Yet the Global Times accused the cruiser of \”harassing\” the Liaoning formation by taking \”offensive actions\”.
