    Argentina sinks Chinese fishing boat

    Argentina has sunk a Chinese fishing vessel because of illegal fishing activity, according to a statement from Argentina's coast guard.

    The coast guard, known as the Argentine Naval Prefecture, sunk the Lu Yan Yuan Yu 010 vessel after detecting it illegally fishing within the country's exclusive economic zone, officials said.

    The coast guard first fired warning shots and chased the Chinese vessel, then used force to damage it after the Chinese vessel conducted "dangerous maneuvers," the coast guard said Tuesday.

    The Chinese vessel sank, and five people on board -- four crew members and the vessel's captain -- were rescued by Argentina's coast guard. It was not immediately clear if the five rescued account for all those aboard the Chinese vessel.

    CNN is seeking comment from China regarding the incident.

    It's amazing the Argentine navy even has a seaworthy warship!

    I reckon a Chinese invasion is imminent.

    No wait that's already happening with Chinese immigration....

    Their navy is the strongest branch of all their armed forces and has quite the history. At one point they even had an aircraft carrier. Definitely strong enough to kick around a Chinese fishing trawler.

    Racists awake, their coming for your women and babies.

    Hasn't China got some islands down there to protect.

    I wonder what your reaction would be if China went around sinking foreign fishing boats within China's exclusive economic zone.

    The Argentine coastguard said all 32 crew members were rescued.

    China has expressed "serious concern" over the sinking. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a statement that Beijing had "made urgent representations" to Argentina, demanding a thorough investigation.

    Chinese fishermen won't want to leave Argentina, they will melt into the Chinese community.

    .....and already have established a great deal of impact on the continent as we speak. Something, Uncle Sugar to the north never could - even try to enforce within their sphere of familiar influence.

    I remember going to Gambia for the first time in the '80s.

    They had this monstrous concrete carbuncle of a "national stadium", in which I witnessed probably the funniest game of football I have ever seen, an FA Cup semi final, in the company of the chief of police.

    The Chinese, as a gift, built it for them.

    They've been craftily buying their way into third world countries for years.

    The Chinese are everywhere seducing your woman and lighting your pipe.

    Hardworking, profitable, prolific breeders and out of sight. Many countries want immigrants with those qualifications.

    You impetuous fool, wait a few months, the satellites have to be repositioned from the ME.

    The SR71 days have long gone.




    One of these will appear out of the depths of the Atlantic, with the help of a MOAB, maybe this year or the next century. I'm not sure how quickly these, volcanic islands, take to reach the surface. Extending coral islands, we do in a month or two, if that's any help.

    But there will be, a made in China, flag atop it.



    Maybe even a few of those, clad in blue camouflaged, sexy sailors, strapped to sea-lions, spotted sweeping in, out of the stormy surf.
