US Warship: 'Surrender Monkey' in South China Sea Print E-mail

The U.S. Navy flinched into surrender mode in the South China Sea last week as it encroached upon disputed waters. The USS Cowpens was blocked by a Chinese battleship and scampered away after a tense standoff.

According to Channel NewsAsia, "A Chinese naval vessel came dangerously close to a US warship during a tense incident in the South China Sea last week, US military officials said on Friday."

To boost dismal popularity ratings at home, President Barack Obama is threatening to launch a war against China.

As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "The USS Cowpens, a guided missile cruiser, was forced to manoeuvre to avoid a collision with the Chinese ship that had crossed directly in front of it and halted, according to naval officers and defence officials."

The USS Cowpens was in the vicinity of China's battleship the Liaoning during the standoff.
