'No more woe is me': Senator McCain vows quick return to Washington

'No more woe is me': Senator McCain vows quick return to WashingtonBy Richard Cowan and David Schwartz WASHINGTON/PHOENIX, Ariz. (Reuters) - U.S. Senator John McCain promised on Thursday he would return rapidly to Washington despite his newly diagnosed brain cancer, flashing the fighting spirit that has defined him since he was held in captivity as a Navy pilot during the Vietnam War. McCain, a veteran senator and former Republican presidential candidate known as a strong and sometimes fiercely independent voice on defense and security issues, was found to have an aggressive form of brain tumor, glioblastoma, after surgery last week for a blood clot above his left eye. The news, issued by his office late on Wednesday, drew a wave of support from across the political spectrum, and raised questions about how long McCain would be absent from the Senate, where Republicans have a narrow majority and are eager to notch up some legislative successes for President Donald Trump.

Royal Navy scrambles to shadow Chinese warships in English Channel as they head to Baltics for first war games with Russia 

Royal Navy scrambles to shadow Chinese warships in English Channel as they head to Baltics for first war games with Russia The Royal Navy scrambled a warship to shadow a Chinese flotilla as it steamed through the English Channel en route to meet Russian vessels for manoeuvres in the Baltic Sea. The trio of Chinese warships passed through the Strait of Dover under the watch of the HMS Richmond, a Type 23 frigate, at the weekend. They then headed across the North Sea, where they were spotted being escorted by Dutch vessels earlier this week ahead of manoeuvres with Vladimir Putin’s navy which begin on Friday. China’s state-run Global Times newspaper said on Tuesday that the 052D, the country’s “most advanced guided-missile destroyer”, was taking part in the week-long joint drills. The Chinese warships later headed through Dutch waters on their way to the Baltic Credit:  Rob Verkerk  The ship “is equipped with phased array radar and a vertical launching system”, the newspaper said. Russian media say ten ships will take part in the first phase of the exercise, joined by more than 10 aircraft and helicopters. Route of Chinese warships The drills mark the first occasion that Chinese warships have ever carried out manoeuvres in the strategically important Baltic Sea.  The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy had just completed exercises in the Mediterranean, another show of strength from Beijing as it rapidly expands its military reach across the globe. The drills with Russia mark the first occasion that Chinese warships have ever carried out manoeuvres in the strategically important Baltic Sea Credit: Rob Verkerk  Professor Ni Lexiong, a Shanghai-based military expert, told The Telegraph the Baltic Sea drills were aimed at Nato, but were being carried out in response to drills that were recently staged by the US, India and Japan in the Indian Ocean, which were directed towards China. “China and Russia have pledged to enhance their strategic relationship by regularly staging military drills,” said Prof Ni, director of the Shanghai University of Political Science and Law’s Sea Power and Defence Policy Research Institute. “China also has its own plans,” he added. “Which is to show the world that it is a major naval power.” A Chinese naval fleet held a military exercise with the Russian navy in St Petersburg and Kaliningrad last month. The two countries have held joint drills every year since 2012, and military officials in China said this year’s manoeuvres will focus on “joint rescue efforts and protecting cargo vessels”. China and Russia both have veto powers on the UN Security Council, and regularly vote together on major issues such as the crisis in Syria. This position often puts them at odds with the United States and Western Europe.
