Shade removed but growing darkness overwhelms
“What is the US up to this time?”
USS Cheyenne (SSN-773) "is also headed to the same path taken by the USS Guardian" (MCM-5).
Malacañang (office of the Philippines President) granted USS Cheyenne a diplomatic pass to enter Philippine waters and dock at Subic Bay.
On 17 January 2013 following a port call and fuel stop in Subic, [USS] Guardian proceeded across the Sulu Sea and entered the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park. After appearing on Park radar, at approximately 0400 hours local time Guardian was radioed a warning by park officials that the vessel had entered a restricted area. Park officials claim their warning was met with disregard by Guardian, which radioed back to "bring [their] complaint to the U.S. Embassy." Shortly thereafter, Guardian ran aground on Tubbataha Reef about 130 kilometres (70 nmi) south east of Palawan in the Philippines. - source
