This editorial is the most-read article today in China‘s important, semi-official newspaper, the People’s Daily. It argues that the U.S. Navy accused China once again of conducting “unsafe and unprofessional” maneuvers near U.S. military aircraft sent to spy on China. Reports claim that two Chinese fighter jets intercepted a P-3 Orion surveillance plane over the South China Sea on Wednesday. BUT the article concludes ‘How ridiculous it is for the U.S. Navy to complain after jeopardizing China’s security and interests. Such behavior makes one think of a Chinese idiom: the wicked are the first to complain’.

This is truly a remarkable achievement.

I wonder how many years it will take for commercial airlines to start to take to space?
