The Chinese military said that the American destroyer USS Milius illegally entered the territorial waters of the country

According to the Arabic satellite channel Al Jazeera, the Chinese military said that the American destroyer USS Milius today illegally entered Chinese territorial waters in the South China Sea.

The military added in a statement that a cruise missile destroyer crossed the water border near the Paracel Islands.

Beijing noted that the country's naval and air forces were monitoring the US destroyer and warned its crew to leave China's territorial waters.

Chinese forces are constantly on high alert and will take all measures to resolutely defend national sovereignty, security, peace and stability in the South China Sea, according to Tian Junli, spokesman for the PLA's Southern Combat Command Zone.

On the other hand, the US Navy denies that the destroyer USS Milius was sailing in Chinese territorial waters, but they say that these were international waters. It should be added here that the Paracel Islands, in the area of ​​which the American destroyer was moving, are a group of disputed islands between China and Vietnam in the South China Sea. In China, the waters around the islands are considered their own, while the United States calls them international. At the same time, the passage itself near the islands is clearly provocative on the part of the United States.

    You definitely need to heat up!!! The Pinds will still start a war, and delaying the inevitable will only lead to even greater losses, and the culprit will still be weak!
    P.s. well, let them not drown, but a couple of launches should be done. Let them fight off, but the eggs must be demonstrated .... If there is, of course

      China is ready to sink an American destroyer many times less than Russia was ready to sink a British one.

      Well, these are all emotions, but a pair of 055s accompanied by this American would look much more serious than words ...

      What to watch? He will express his concern, draw a red line, in general, everything will be as always. As long as the dollar rules the world, everything will be as the Americans want.

    Americans would not be "democratic" Americans so as not to try to provoke their adversary, which they consider China to be. They run up in the Black Sea, in the South China too. Well, it's itchy, itchy.

    Do not drown, but throw it out in bulk - there will be a notable splash in the image of mattresses.

    The Britons also considered the waters near the Crimea to be international and marginal, they invested at the rate of combat - dumped ..... To intercept and force out, they don’t understand, to drown unequivocally, if you consider it your own waters, it doesn’t matter that someone does not recognize it. The striped drone will not let you lie.

    La Chine et la Russie doivent choisir un représentant Indien (Indien d'Amerique, tel Sioux ou autre Comanche...) qu'il reconnaitront comme représentant légitime du pays (comme le font les us avec leurs pantins navalny et autre guaido... ) et considerer les us comme imposteurs et terroristes afin de couler légitimement leurs moyens d'agressions.

    This was a trap for China and Vietnam. The United States would very much like to resist China and Vietnam and, if possible, war. They will insist on building up the SUPRECY to the 2nd power. But I think, I’m even sure that the threads of the Chinese are the threads of the Vietnamese, no fools know who the United States is, and the Vietnamese, on their own skin, felt the US democracy well.
    China and Vietnam resolve disputed questions in a peaceful way and against the interests of the United States !!! and pitting the Asian states.

    Well, shoot, why whine? Russia, by the way (which everyone rightly reproaches for toothlessness
    in foreign policy) - and gave a turn to the British trough, and dropped bombs from the plane off the side of the Dutch frigate ...
