Here we go AGAIN:

The 24 U.S. air crew members were held for 11 days until Washington apologized for the incident.

I remember that. The real reason they held the US crewmen was because the chinese were still pissed-off that the US had "accidentally" bombed their embassy during the NATO bombardment in Yugoslavia.

But let us not forget all the Chinese spy planes that regular patrol the eastern coast of the USA.

Sorry about that. I'll withdraw that comment as stupid.

I'll get my coat now and be on my way.

Unlike the PRC, the US allows for other countries to fly in international airspace without harassment.

So you're making a wise decision on withdrawing that comment. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

China better watch it, being either the us or Japan they might end up biting off more than they can chew.

no surprise here. We haven't sent much of a response to Russian Aircrafts flying 50 ft from our battleships in the Baltics, nor any kind of attitude towards their involvement in Syria.

How can someone respect you, when your not swinging your large stick anymore?

Goodluck to 4 - 8 more years under a Democrat leadership is Clinton gets elected.

Just saying.

There are Russian spy crafts off the US east coast all the time:

But ya never hear about these on the news.

Guess why?

(Hint: because there are no incidents)

Just minimize the possibilities of an incident and everything's good

Unlike the USA, the PRC doesn't "accidentally" bomb other nation's embassy. Doh!

@simond: If you want to create story, check maps first such as Atlantic or pacific ocean. Sound you don't know where is China or USA.
