China Accuses Pentagon of 'Blowhard Performance' in Port Snub

China Accuses Pentagon of 'Blowhard Performance' in Port SnubChina claimed today that it was a “series of tricks” played by the U.S. military that prompted the communist nation to refuse a port visit to American warships in Hong Kong recently, but said that the military snub should not be blown out of proportion. “Normally, China does not articulate its reasons, and this has been considered as a diplomatic gesture of expressing its dissatisfaction as well as taking the bilateral divergences under control,” the paper says.
