China accuses US of hyping underwater drone issue

""Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the UUV to the United States," he [Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook] said.
China earlier had indicted it would return the unmanned device, while accusing the U.S. of having "hyped" the issue.
"Upon confirming that the device was a U.S. underwater drone, the Chinese side decided to transfer it to the U.S. side in an appropriate manner," said the spokesman for the Chinese Defense Ministry, Sr. Col. Yang Yujun, according to CNN."

They knew Trump would not be pleased.

Pissy just went off to Hawaii, so he wasn't going to do anything.

I don't like the idea of these underwater drones putting all those loyal, highly trained, patriotic dolphins on the unemployment line.

"Through direct engagement with the Chinese authorities..." Was China jelly because Trump talked directly with Taiwan? Should we reward negative attention??

It's about time China gets knocked down a peg or two. I'd like to see Trump make that happen in one of his devious ways.
