Any time there is an nuclear armed navy warship on the surface, there is a nuclear armed navy submarine shadowing it down below. IOW, dont mess with the USA.

Yea right, Freedom of navigation only afforded for US-A and its allied. There will be a different story if China or Russia warship sailing near US's coast.

Yeah there'd be a different story - because the US doesn't care if China or Russia warships do. Heck, the US even allows "innocent passage" thru their territory:

"Chinese Warships Made ‘Innocent Passage’ Through U.S. Territorial Waters off Alaska"

Five Chinese warships crossed into U.S. territorial waters heading south out of the Bering Sea exercising a stipulation in maritime law that allows a warship to cross into another country’s maritime territory legally, U.S. defense officials told USNI News on Thursday.

An innocent passage, without prior notification, is a maritime right laid out as part of the U.N. Law of the Sea Convention.

It's called "innocent passage."

But China does not believe in it. (The US does though.)

China won't let anyone "innocent passage" thru their waters.
