    I hope there is no problem with you doing so...but we are grateful for the on-scene pictures.

    Guys, this is a Chinese SCS Base/Island Thread not a Strategy Page.

    It is also not a page about Chinese ELINT vessels off of Hawaii.

    Get back on Topic.

    OT Deleted.

    No I don't think there will be any problems, I tried my best not to take any photos of things that I consider sensitive (though I really wanted to :D)

    What kind of aircraft besides helicopters can Vietnam land on their 550 meter runway?

    Can't even keep their own story straight.

    Headline says Chinese navy, but only coast guard ships are mentioned when describing the incident in detail.

    Also, they are playing this up like its a land grab, when in fact it's pretty much the exact opposite, since all China did was tow away another ship that the Philippines ran aground before they could put marines on it.

    After the grounded ship was removed, the Chinese ships also withdrew.

    Funny how no one is focusing on that and it's just being slipped in at the end as an aside hoping few people would notice.

    Interesting unclassified testimony from James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, to Senator McCain on China's SCS actions that suggests China hasn't "militarized" the Spratlys beyond point defense and facilities that could support offensive and defensive forces.
