HANOI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Vietnam said on Wednesday a Chinese vessel intentionally rammed two of its ships in a part of the disputed South China Sea where Beijing has deployed a giant oil rig, sending tensions spiraling in the region.

The Foreign Ministry in Hanoi said the collisions took place on Sunday and caused considerable damage to the Vietnamese ships. Six people suffered minor injuries, it said.

"On May 4, Chinese ships intentionally rammed two Vietnamese Sea Guard vessels," said Tran Duy Hai, a Foreign Ministry official and deputy head of Vietnam's national border committee.

"Chinese ships, with air support, sought to intimidate Vietnamese vessels. Water cannon was used," he told a news conference in Hanoi. Six other ships were also hit, but not as badly, other officials said.
...
"The fact that the Chinese moved ahead in placing their rig immediately after President Barack Obama's visit to four Asian countries in late April underlines Beijing's commitment to test the resolve of Vietnam, its Association of Southeast Asian Nations neighbors, and Washington," they said.

Beijing may be attempting "to substantially change the status quo" while perceiving Washington to be distracted by developments in Ukraine, Nigeria and Syria, they said.

"If China believes Washington is distracted, in an increasingly insular and isolationist mood, and unwilling to back up relatively strong security assertions made to Japan and the Philippines and repeated during President Obama's trip, then these developments south of the Paracel Islands could have long-term regional and global consequences," they said.
...
An oil industry official in China said deployment of the rig appeared a political decision rather than a commercial one.

"This reflected the will of the central government and is also related to the U.S. strategy on Asia," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

A United States serviceman died after a brawl on the street outside a popular dance club in Seoul’s Hongdae district on Sunday over the extended Children’s Day weekend.

Carl Lissone and three others, who had spent the evening drinking and dancing at Club Naked, got into a quarrel shortly after exiting the establishment in the early hours of May 4. 

Outside the club, which is popular among men and women serving in the U.S. military stationed here, the 20-year-old Lissone was knocked unconscious during a fight with another U.S. serviceman, according to a government source familiar with the situation. 

Although Lissone was bleeding from his nose and ears, the three men brought him not to a nearby hospital but to a motel in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, near Camp Humphreys, where they are stationed. 

Lissone was then taken to Good Morning Hospital in Pyeongtaek, where he was pronounced dead.

The men did not report his death to military authorities until 1 p.m. that day. Criminal charges against any of the three men have not yet been made, a United States Forces Korea spokesperson said. 

“There was one soldier who essentially became unresponsive and he did die. The facts of what actually happened are a part of the KNP (Korean National Police)’s investigation,” said Col. Shawn Stroud, chief of public affairs for the 8th Army. “There is obviously deep sorrow within the 8th Army and within his unit, as well as back in the States where his family lives.” 

The soldiers were in violation of multiple USFK rules placed on its personnel, including the underage consumption of alcohol, violating curfew and fighting. 

Military authorities are now considering placing Club Naked on the list of locations off-limits to U.S. military personnel as a result of the incident, according to the government source. 

Stroud said it is too soon to speculate whether the soldier’s death could push the USFK to prohibit all servicemen from visiting Hongdae, saying, “That is something the senior leadership will look at.” 

According to a Facebook page registered in his name, Lissone was a graduate of Lithonia High School in Lithonia, Georgia, in the greater Atlanta area. 

Lissone was a part of the 304th Expeditionary Signal Battalion, which was the first element to relocate to Camp Humphreys in December 2012 as part of the 2004 Land Partnership Program agreement between the U.S. and South Korea to move American soldiers south of the Hangang River. 

Lithonia High School alumni have created the hashtag #RIPCarlLissone on Twitter for those wishing to send prayers and condolences for Lissone and his family. 

Tldr: 20 year old army dude gets in a fight with 3 of the people he went out with. They beat the poo poo out of him and leave him in a motel room instead of a hospital. loving disgusting assholes.

You're missing the obvious answer here; full lockdown with required NCO escort to go off-post. If they never go anywhere or do anything the whole time in country then there's no chance anything bad can happen. I have paperwork right here saying the barracks is a wonderful place full of exciting events someone scheduled for an evaluation bullet, so there's plenty of stuff for all of them to do which will prevent all these troubles. It's a win/win for everyone right?

Oh I was in Korea for two years. Nobody's butthole was ever tighter than after the Okinowan Reserve Rape Weekend. I know fully what's gonna happen and I'm glad on not on one of those shithole reactionary bases.

They'll get LOCs, except the one that's had similar incidents previously; he'll get an LOR and forced out. One of the LOC guys already has an LOC for alcohol related issues, so he'll be allowed to finish his commitment or try for VSP, but not reenlist. The other LOC has a relatively clean record, and a PT test next month. When he scores a 99.4 the LOC will be shredded. It's too bad though...100 and he would've been entered into a drawing to get an F-15 fam ride.

Well he won back in Crimea. Question now is what he wants. More of Ukraine? Independent fiefdoms as more easily controlled buffers? Just leave Ukraine a burning mess for shits and giggles?

Because while everyone is busy talking up how bad Putin has outmanouvered the west, fact is that without the Crimean voters the pro-west side has a clear electoral majority in the remaining Ukraine. So it is essentially lost to the EU in the long term.
