BREAKING: China's navy has seized an unmanned, underwater U.S. Navy vehicle in international waters of South China Sea.

Beijing claims a small Vietnamese fishing boat rammed one of its coast-guard ships in the South China Sea, rather than the other way around. It’s hard to imagine a more ludicrous story. The U.S. stands with Vietnam as it defends its citizens and sovereignty from CCP aggression.

China's sinking of a Vietnamese fishing vessel in the South China Sea is yet another example of using a pandemic as cover to advance military objectives. China's belligerent behavior & expansionist agenda is a threat to all nations. Focus must remain on the pandemic, not war.
