Discussion: China Returns US Underwater Drone Seized In South China Sea

Trump will take the credit…

One wonders if China may do a similar thing when Trump takes office, and then refuse to give it back just to send him a message…shut your mouth.

Obama preferred the “speak softly but carry a big stick” strategy…a proven winner. Trump is going to get himself in trouble with his insecurity and urge to talk trash.

It can take a few days to dismantle a robot, reverse engineer it, and put it back together. We’re probably going to be seeing Chinese versions of these drones in our own waters next year.

In Trump’s case, it’s “Speak loudly waving little tiny hands”.

They gave it back quickly after confirming it is of a design they already hacked.

Most likely. It’s probably not that complicated mechanically anyway.
