Remember how amused John Kerry was when that crazy Mitt Romney started spouting nonsense about keeping an eye on Russia and China? Secretary of State Kerry is currently in Beijing attending the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, where he repeated that the United States is looking to resolve disputes in the South China Sea peacefully, “through rule of law, through diplomacy, through negotiation.”
In the meantime, Chinese fighter pilots continued their unprofessional and unsafe buzzing of U.S. targets, even after Defense Secretary Ash Carter told them, “Hey, knock it off.”

That’s just how the Chinese government welcomes its most honored and respected guests.

Isn’t it Russia’s turn to buzz us now? If our count is correct, Russia hasn’t buzzed our military since April, while China hogged May for itself.
However the geopolitical situation in the South China Sea plays out, at least there’s an informal commitment to keep the water clean.
