      The Chinese really seem to enjoy the ramming tactic, at sea and in the air. (and on the road)


      This just in, the Chinese have announced construction of a new island off the coast of Puerto Madryn.

        Hmm... Some of the news outlets here reported that the event had taken place in the Argentinian EEZ, not in the national waters. I find it hard to believe that a fishing vessel would venture inside the limit of the national waters (i.e. 12 nm).

            Does not bother me. Those guys deserve to be shot and sunk on the high seas.

                Good for Argentina!

                I wonder how long it will take our faux-US poster to show up and start blaming the USA...

                    More importantly how far was the ship from British waters? Would be very concerned if the ship was sunk in the Falklands fishery zone.

                      Bout time someone did it; those guys are out-of-control. Now, if only, the local fishermen could be convinced to not overfish for the insatiable Asian market......

                        I wonder how incoming Argentine President Mauricio Macri will handle this moving forward. His predecessor Cristina Fernandez did nothing to discourage it.

                              The article mentioned a second Chinese boat in the area picked up most of the ship's crew. Was it also a fishing boat and if so why was it this area?
