Red Dragon Subs Breathing Down US's Neck

So we have had yet another "incident" with the Chinese. An unidentified sub from the Peoples' Liberation Army (Navy) either crept up on the USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) or were unaware of their location and ran into the destroyer's towed sonar array.

It appears that the Chinese want to replace the Russians as our sparring partners. We can do that. Let's hope that the brass will keep up the right attitude and not go soft on this new threat.

And besides, why did they have to attack a ship named (in part) for a submarine officer? On guard Westpac fast attack boats, your optempo and thrills are about to both increase.
