Both sides continue to point fingers over the collision of a US spy plane and Chinese fighter jet that left the Chinese pilot presumed dead and 24 Americans detained. Despite diplomatic posturing and carefully crafted rhetoric that leaves both governments a way out, little if any progress toward a settlement seems to have been made. We examine reasons and resolutions for an incident without precedent, with a former military officer at the US embassy in Beijing, the former chair of Chinese Studies at UC Berkeley, and experts in international law, defense and national security.
