    Russians Harassing Navy Ships....Why Do We Tolerate it?



    Russia and US warships almost collide in East China Sea - BBC News

    The title. I'm not Navy so I'm not sure how to answer it. A Russian war ship gets within 100 feet of an American war ship; close enough where Russian seamen can taunt American seamen? Why the hell don't we send a torpedo up their asses? Why are we letting ourselves be bullied without a response? Once, alright, twice, fine, but how many times are we up to? The Russians are going to keep doing it until there's a consequence. I say we give them one.

    Were you born yesterday? This has been happening for as long as nations have existed.
    In 1985, I was on an American repair ship that ran over and killed a Russian sub. It's just the games we play.

    The same reason we applaud the confiscation of guns and the arrest of gun owners, spineless cowards.
    I have a marvelous economy with words.

    So, we've been pussies for decades. Right. Why do we continue to be like that?

    Pussies don't run over and kill Russian subs.
    On another day, we were sailing with a fueler. They were gonna light off their phalanx, so we all went to the port side to watch. My chief pointed up at 2 Russian bears that were watching us. When that gun fired up, they both turned around in their own length and disappeared.
