China is posturing and it is apparent who will be the dominant one!

Have fun Barry! China is harassing our navy ships to see how you will respond. China knows how to play this game from previous experience. Based on Obama's response, via Gibbs, we know who the dominant one of the pack will be.

China's Hu urges staunch defence days after U.S. spat

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Hu Jintao urged the military to "staunchly defend" national sovereignty in comments published days after a brief confrontation with a U.S. Navy ship.

China says the U.S. ship violated its sovereignty by monitoring waters in its exclusive economic zone.

Washington has said its ship, the Impeccable, was in international waters.

But Hu, who also serves as Communist Party chief and supreme military leader, made it clear that Beijing does not want to be seen as bowing to others.

Hu will have his first meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama when both leaders attend the G20 summit on the global financial crisis in London next month,

But China's leaders are also wary of perceived slights and are mindful of sometimes fervent nationalism which has flared in the past after military disputes with the United States.
