China passed a law on Friday that for the first time explicitly allows its coast guard to fire on foreign vessels, a move that could make the contested waters around China more choppy.

China has maritime sovereignty disputes with Japan in the East China Sea and with several Southeast Asian countries in the South China Sea. It has sent its coast guard to chase away fishing vessels from other countries, sometimes resulting in the sinking of these vessels.

China’s top legislative body, the National People’s Congress standing committee, passed the Coast Guard Law on Friday, according to state media reports.

According to draft wording in the bill published earlier, the coast guard is allowed to use “all necessary means” to stop or prevent threats from foreign vessels.

Because they know that the U.S. “Leadership” has been gelded.

If they fired at our vessels, I’m sure our new POTUS would order us not to fire back.

Wait until the Left finds out what they have done to us not
just domestically, but internationally.

Kim will pop out of his shell in the next few weeks.

Iran will kick up its heels.

Biden actually thinks Syria is his major problem.

Wow...

China is setting up test, just like they did in 2000 with the forced landing of our spy plane. Officers had better be reading the riot act to all crews right that failure to follow procedures to destroy sensitive data/gear will result in 20 years in the brig, once China releases you.

China (and the rest of the world) is not afraid of Biden who invites aggression of our enemies.

We are now in the Hands of the Divine Providence of God Almighty. Either Jesus comes now to take us, or things must radically change very soon.

We are now totally at the mercy of China, because they know that the U.S. will not respond to anything they do, unless the military ignores Beijing Biden’s orders.

The only thing that is going to happen quickly is the Biden/Harris betrayal of Taiwan.
