This is an additional information surrounding the Chinese interception of one US spy plane.
US plane ‘interfered’ with Chinese sub before intercept: Global Times
[ Editor’s note: We had no way to verify this story, but it is consistent with the kinds of games America would play when testing defenses during the Cold War. But dropping a sonobuoy on a Chinese sub in their neck of the woods would be a very aggressive move.
As to why the Navy would mess around like this, take your pick of reasons. It could be a game to provoke them to respond. The report of their response could then be plastered all over US media as an aggression, while leaving out what we did to trigger it. It is a mini false flag, in that nobody was killed, but the event was orchestrated to manipulate public opinion, an attack on the public — actually.
And it could have been a diversion from the Ukraine mess that is going south, along with America’s waning claim to exceptionalism, if you leave out exceptional blunders. I fear it will get worse before it gets better. Politicians are always wanting some grandstanding theater around election time, so we are in the silly season for doing things for a bad reason… Jim W.

A Chinese fighter jet that made a controversial intercept of an American reconnaissance aircraft earlier this month may have been forced to do so because the US plane had been “seriously interfering” with a Chinese submarine, says the Chinese-language version of the Global Times, a nationalistic tabloid under the auspices of the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily.
In yet another staunch defense of the intercept by the Chinese J-11 fighter from the People’s Liberation Army on the US Navy’s P-8A reconnaissance plane on Aug. 19, the Global Times questioned what other alternatives were available to China when the US had been conducting highly frequent close-in surveillance near Chinese waters and airspace.
While Pentagon press secretary John Kirby labeled the intercept, in which the two planes came within nine meters of one another, as “aggressive” and “dangerous,” Global Times said China had no choice, adding that the primary role of the P8-A is anti-submarine warfare, meaning it is designed to find, track and deter, damage or destroy enemy submarines.
Citing an unnamed Chinese military expert, Global Times said that the P8-A may have been intercepted because it was “seriously interfering” with the underwater movements of a Chinese submarine, stating that the reported intercept point was only 200 kilometers from Chinese airspace.
The expert suggested that the incident has been completely overblown by US media, saying that the Chinese military has always been quite “restrained” when dealing with US planes and should have a “standard, professional” intercept process in place. Chinese pilots also have “very strong discipline,” he added.
The expert goes on to deduce that the PA-8 may have deployed a sonobuoy, an expendable sonar system dropped from aircraft conducting anti-submarine warfare. This would have been a “very serious provocation,” he said.
