Thread: #Chinese Nuclear Submarine May Have Been Involved In Incident In #SouthChinaSea - A Chinese Type 094 (Jin-class) nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) surfaced next to a #Vietnamese fishing vessel near the Paracel Islands…
The Jin Class is the newest missile submarine in the Chinese arsenal. Six have been built and are already the backbone of China’s at-sea nuclear deterrent. The submarines are based near Sanya on the island of Hainan, about 190 miles northwest of the Paracel Islands.
Surfacing next to another country's vessel is unusual and suggests that something has gone wrong. Something serious enough to warrant sacrificing its main asset: stealth. This is not the type of submarine you would expect to be used to send a message.

The Chams are an Austronesian people indigenous to what was previously the kingdom of Champa, now in modern day south Vietnam. They currently follow 3 religions, Hinduism, Sunni Shafi'i Islam & a third religion mixing the other two together. They were conquered by Vietnam.
Champa along with Vietnam was under the rule of Han dynasty China after China expanded & conquered territories in south China & Indochina. The official Khu Liên (Qū Lián) led Chams to revolt against China in 192 & established the independent Cham kingdom of Lâm Ấp (Linyi).
The Chams were then Indianized by their neighbor Funan. China & #Champa then fought each other several times over the next 800 years as they shared a border. China invaded Champa in the Sui dynasty in 605 & sacked the Cham capital before withdrawing after disease struck the army.

The #Vietnamese Navy & Coast Guard have been mobilized & are in high alert status. The info running around in Viet military circles is that the Chinese ships are acting very aggressively and attempted to ram VN vessels. @CollinSLKoh @duandang @BonnieGlaser
The Chinese survey ship is protected not only by Chinese coast guard vessels, but also by Chinese navy ships positioned behind the Chinese coast guard vessels. The Chinese ships are near the DK-1 area of Vietnamese oil rigs & platforms.
Both sides are keeping things under wraps for now. There is no official information or media news about this situation. The situation is tense, but is not at the level of the 2014 oil rig incidents, for now. Pictures of the DK-1 oil rig area that is next to the contested area.

#LanguageTrivia: A common catchphrase in English language for speech or text being indecipherable to a person is - "It's all Greek to me!" [1/n]
The genesis of this phrase is often cited as dating back to 1599 when Shakespeare's Casca conspiring against Julius Caesar said, “Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads, but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me.” [2/n]
However, prior to its usage by Shakespeare, English poet Gascoigne, circa 1566, while interpreting an Italian comedy into english wrote, "This geare (talk) is Greeke to me; either it hangs not well together, or I am very dull of understanding: speak plaine, I pray you.” [3/n]

My First #Sashimi since I left #USA 4.5 Months Ago. I love (Love x Love) #Turkish food BUT I also love #Japanese #Thai #Mexican #Vietnamese Cuisines. 4.5 Months is a LONG Time to Go Without Any Other World Food! Another Reason to Visit Big City #Istanbul Once-In-A-While;-)#Turkey
Not bad- nothing really special, but for the craving will do. Using Farm-Raised salmon was the main bummer (Tasteless!!). Seaweed salad a bit too sweet- not vinegary enough. Any how ... I guess this is the best I can get in #Istanbul as far as #Japanese food goes;-)
Soooo to make the long story short, had this been a mind-blowing-Ly good eat experience, then, I would have shared with you the name of the establishment. But in this case: I won’t;-)
