Reuters: Chinese jets intercept U.S surveillance plane: U.S. officials

Two Chinese fighter jets carried out an intercept of a U.S. military surveillance plane near Hong Kong on Wednesday, with one coming within 200 yards of the American aircraft, U.S. officials told Reuters.

The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said initial reports showed that the U.S. P-3 surveillance plane was 150 miles South East of Hong Kong in international air space when the aircraft carried out an unsafe intercept of the plane. One Chinese aircraft flew in front of the American plane, restricting it's ability to maneuver.

We can thank Obama and his "Leadership From Behind" for the current situation. By not challenging this directly and immediately it becomes de facto maritime law. These structures are in no way China's "sovereign territory". Its a total infringement on international commercial shipping, fishing and gas/oil exploration.

And its going to fall upon a Republican administration and the US Navy to clean up yet another foreign policy failure by Democrats - in this case the Obama bunch.
