Chinese authorities also requested an “immediate inquest” into the procedure of the Argentine Coast Guard in the sinking of the vessel Lu Yuan Yu10. Read full article

    Blah blah blah,
    Shut up and tell your boats to stop breaking other countries laws and plundering fish stocks.

    Standard issue boiler plate response. Its already settled. Nobody official either side of the Pacific really cares about some chancers and their boat.
    But the bureaucratic dance off must be seen by the bored media.
    Good photo op too.

    So let it begin and quickly end.

    The Chinese ship looks barely sea worthy,could of been sunk with a nerf gun.

    Argentina had every right to sink it.

    Those overpopulated, slant eyed fucks are raping the world over. We need more actions like the RG message before they get it through their egg shaped head of theirs. It's going to get progessively worse for the Chin as the world moves forward and they are in the wake.

    Worrying the performance of the Argentine Navy. China is the second largest trading partner of Argentina, behind Brazil. We should not treat this way our friends.

    performance of the Argentine Navy,

    Boy, what power, to sink a junk boat, very powerful indeed.

    China may well do sweet F.A,

    on the other hand, when sailing in Chinese waters,
    don't fly ya flag, they may well return the compliment.

    just saying like, nuffink Wong in that

    @ 8 what a plonker!
    The English would only send the Chinese a telegram asking them to please obtain the required documents next time they enter territorial waters.

    @6 is correct.

    I think we shall be waiting a very long time before we see video of the 'attempted ramming' which is odd considering the quality of what we have seen.

    Other nations would have stayed in hot pursuit all the way to South Africa or even Indonesia. ARA ships can't do that because they would either break down, or be unable to buy fuel at the far end so they could get home, and most importantly because it involves sailing out of sight of land.

    10- you remain in hot persuit if you do not have a gun and the offender escapes into Int Waters. If you have a gun and the offender is in your waters or EEZ and refuses to stop- you are entitled to use your gun.
    Standard policy.
    Falklands Fisheries would do- and have done the same. Warning shots - then into the hull- on our case the vessel then stopped and was arrested and escorted into Stanley - eventually stripped bare and sank at sea when owners refused to pay.

    When all else is in question you can always rely on this:

    rgs lie.

    Now what the Chinese did or didn't do may not be ascertainable but you can always count on this:

    Not only do rgs lie - they do it with remarkable frequency.

    Now the Chinese may not be forthcoming in this matter but rest assured that:

    rgs lie and with remarkable frequency - even when the truth might serve them better.

    So remember:

    rgs lie.

    rgs lie often.

    rgs lie unnecessarily.

    minus 3, now how clever was that? If you weren't an idiot you wouldn't have any IQ at all. First you are a man (I am assuming) ashamed of his homeland, and now a witless MP clown.

    Bozo, I think you chronically act like bozo.

    Mmmmmmmm...where is tobi......? Tobi....oh tobi.....

    What does it feel like to lack total conviction that one must resort to lying? YB has been banned, that's why he, his screen name is gone.

    NPR and PBS are covering the bond story and painting it fairly accurately.

    Accordingly, Singer is described as persistent and rg is described as well rg.

    Now public broadcasting is the leftist media America has.

    Poor rg.
