UPDATE:
U.S. intelligence ships, aircraft, and satellites are closely watching a Russian military vessel in the Atlantic that has been sailing near a U.S. nuclear missile submarine base and underwater transit routes, according to Pentagon officials.

The Russian research ship Yantar has been tracked from the northern Atlantic near Canada since late August as it makes its way south toward Cuba.

Defense officials familiar with reports on the Russian ship say the Yantar is believed to be gathering intelligence on underwater sensors and other equipment used by U.S. nuclear submarines based at Kings Bay, Georgia. The submarines, their transit lanes, and training areas stretch from the coastal base through the Atlantic to Europe.

China has repeatedly said that its military activities aren’t designed to threaten any other nation but are expanding in tandem with its economic power, as well as its interests and responsibilities around the world.

Pentagon officials said Wednesday that the Chinese ships were still in the area, but declined to specify when the vessels were first spotted or how far they were from the coast of Alaska, where Mr. Obama wound up his visit Wednesday.

Pentagon officials also said there was no information suggesting the Chinese ships had gone through the Bering Strait, a narrow waterway north of the sea that abuts Alaska.

“We respect the freedom of all nations to operate military vessels in international waters in accordance with international law,” said Cmdr. Bill Urban, a Pentagon spokesman, noting: “This is the first time we have observed [People’s Liberation Army Navy] ships in the Bering Sea.”

U.S. government officials acknowledged the curious timing of the Chinese ships navigating in the waters near Alaska at a time when President Obama is there, but White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Beijing’s intent was still unclear.

The Pentagon official said there were a “variety of opinions” on how to interpret the Chinese ships’ deployment.

It’s difficult to tell exactly, but it indicates some interest in the Arctic region,” the official said. “It’s different.”

The U.S. can not explain the surprise Chinese naval movements, which came as Obama was visiting Alaska and the Arctic region on a three-day trip to address climate change.
Oh noes... the glacier is receding at the end of summer... as it does every year, and has done for at least the previous ten thousand years plus. We has to do something NOW!

Not to even mention that polar routes offer the shortest distance to the places that do offer nice weather and discounts. damned.gif

This is why we must have the right to bear arms. We must learn to play fair with each other over resources.. This comming stand off um balance is from the un balance of unfair global money differences created by a evil middle cult. This is just the beginning of the shift storm and Americans better learn to balance a real currency. To work on a equal balance trade with China to avoid catastrophic financial collapse on both sides.

Seems both Russia and China are poking around to gauge US defense capabilities. popcorn2.gif

That's not important right now. Don't the Chinese know only the US has the right to roam all the seas freely. So rude... 13.gif

Well if you had foreign vessels in your territorial waters I'm sure the US would unleash some serious hellfire. I think these ships were in international waters?

Oh, I agree. And as the U.S. now claims a 200 mile terr. limit, perhaps the war junks were within the limits? Regardless...

I don't think 5 ships of the PRC Navy could do a helluva lotta' damage before some missles showed up.

And certainly, we'd prolly lettum help themselves to anything in Alaska as long as they agree to hold on to their treasuries.

To me the drift of the story was that China is now sailing about in vessels other than container ships.

Never think they are stupid and week that will get you killed. The EMP tech race with us and China is nothing to joke about. We could lose all communication leaving trillions of high tech military equipment in chicken with no head mode.

Russian military troops are in a few states of America right now. They are training and may be part of the Jade Helm training that is suppose to end this month. There has been many unconfermed reports of them being responsible for the two huge Forest fires we recently had in Washington & California. The one in CA use to have public access now its a restricted Forest area.

This Problem could be solved if everyone learned how to speak Mandarin...
If you haven't already, now is the time. Cantonese is over rated, Mandarin is the way to go. I know that Taiwanese has 7 tones. The major varieties of Chinese are not mutually intelligible, but most people in China and Taiwan who don't speak Mandarin as their first language, can speak or at least understand it a bit. So if you want food and water it's only common sense to learn how to beg for it in the correct dialect.
