Chinese Vessels Harass US Navy Surveillance Ship

Chinese ships harassed a US navy surveillance ship. This is starting to occur with almost alarming frequency. In the last month there have been four such incidents. The Pentagon is playing this down, but they should be taking a much stronger stance. This is definitely something to keep an eye on. It looks to me that China is testing the Navy's resolve under the Obama administration, and seem to be pleasantly surprised at what they are finding. Without a stronger stance, I expect to see further aggression by the Chinese.
