I agree with just about everything you've said. If the Chinese had sent in a ship to intercept our communications and we had the opportunity to examine it, I'd be all for it. If it would benefit us and make me feel a little safer in my bed, pick that plane apart with a fine tooth comb. (I realize this is hypocritical so there is no need for various people on this board to point this fact out to me.) The BIG difference is that Chinese crew on American soil would be safe from harm. However, China is well-known for its amorale policies and lack of respect for human beings...especially Americans.

What I am saying (screaming) is DO SOMETHING!!!! The president of the United Stated is not labeled "The Leader of the Free World" for nothing. What I am seeing is in essence one party saying you owe us an apology, the other saying you're not getting one, then the first replying, well if we don't get our apology then you don't get your plane or guys. Sounds rather pre-schoolish to me!!!!

You said, "Blow it up. You do realize that doing something like that, via Tomahawk cruise missile, SEAL infilitration, would be construed
as an Act of War?"

Well, there are reports that the second fighter plane fired warning shots before ordering the pilot to land at the Chinese military base. I would also consider that an act of war...wouldn't you?
