What's going on here? Amphibious assault ship USS America sailing at high speed in the South China Sea today, heading to West Capella drillship

Thanks to Donno for the link!

Are we actually seeing the wake from that ship?  Ok.  You can throw out the bullshit of those things having a max speed of 20 knots can't we?


I hope the Navy and Marine Corps don't take the wrong lessons from this action.  I have NO VISIBILITY on what's going on but if this is the standard Chinese intimidation technique then we're looking at the Chinese Coast Guard trying to bully other nations.

Sending an L-Class Carrier (CONGRATS got me using that term!) to deal with it is kinda overkill in my opinon.

We'll see what we'll see.  More to come.
