    International waters blah blah blah

    in accordance to international law blah blah blah



    I think the command is quite clear. What does "Leave immediately" mean to you? Especially when they have military equipment and personnel guarding the hell out of a place?

    this was yesterday

    Chinese forces deployed to the hotly contested South China Sea ordered a US Navy reconnaissance aircraft to "leave immediately" six times Friday, but the pilot stayed the course, refusing to back down.

    A US Navy P-8A Poseidon reconnaissance plane flew past China's garrisons in the Spratly Islands, giving CNN reporters aboard the aircraft a view of Chinese militarization in the region.

    Flying over Chinese strongholds on Mischief Reef, Johnson Reef, Fiery Cross Reef, and Subi Reef, CNN spotted "large radar installations, power plants, and runways sturdy enough to carry large military aircraft." At one outpost, onboard sensors detected 86 vessels, including Chinese Coast Guard ships, which China has been known to use to strong-arm countries with competing claims in the South China Sea.

    Lt. Lauren Callen, who led the US Navy crew, said it was "surprising to see airports in the middle of the ocean."

    The Chinese stationed in the area were not exactly kind hosts to the uninvited guests.

    Warning the aircraft that it was in Chinese territory — an argument an international arbitration tribunal ruled against two years ago — the Chinese military ordered the US Navy plane to "leave immediately and keep out to avoid any misunderstanding."

    Six warnings were issued, according to CNN, and the US Navy responded the same every time.

    "I am a sovereign immune US naval aircraft conducting lawful military activities beyond the national airspace of any coastal state," the crew replied, adding, "In exercising these rights guaranteed by international law, I am operating with due regard for the rights and duties of all states."
