China has sent a surveillance ship to Hawaiian waters for the very first time in an unprecedented move which is being described as a provocative retaliation to the U.S. naval presence in the East China Sea.
According to a report by GoldSea.com, a news outlet aimed at Asian-Americans, a 4,000 ton People’s Liberation Army electronic reconnaissance ship was recently spotted near Hawaii within the U.S. 200-nautical mile EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone).
The report was also picked up by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, which ran an article entitled China moves spy ship near isles, Asian media say.
Makes sense to me for China to do. We are doing it to them after all. They are not a threat, we are a threat to them. We sent dozens of warships and thousands of troops over towards them, they sent 1 ship towards us. See the difference? Expect more of this kind of stuff in the future. -Mort
