Looks like this is continuing, unabated.


I wonder how long it will be until some enterprising fisherman/men, or others decide to mine, or fill a boat with explosives, and have it detonate remotely, or on contact with the ramming vessel?

I'm surprised it hasn't happened already.

Why would China stop? It's worked so far, will continue to work, and nobody will stop them. Sounds like a winning strategy. And woe be to the country whose citizens do the exploding boat trick, I can see that very easily becoming a pretext for "punitive measures".

If it's a wooden boat, without markings, who are the going to blame, unless of course, they catch the crew, which is why you need to go unmanned?

who are the going to blame

Whomever they chose. I don't believe they'd hesitate retaliating for one second over anything so minor as proof. For that matter, neither would any sovereign state if they really felt aggrieved. Proof can be easily created at need.
