Yes but we are talking near c light speed, which according to that dear old fella Albert Einstein, as far as I know, can never be succeeded from any vantage Point?

Can any object approach another at greater than light speed?   For instance the two protons racing towards each other in the Large Hadron ColIider. is the gap between them closing faster than c?  

The speed of something is how far it traveled in a certain amount of time, not how fast a gap closes I think.

 

Then why the numerous posts my friend?

 

"No" what you are right and others are wrong?

It was answered by the not-so- knowledgeable-but-correct and the very knowledgeable/professional on the first page; take your pick. The subsequent discussion has been about a hypothetical scenario you painted but the original core answer remains even in that but some don't understand it.
