Was it a coincident that five Chinese warships were operating off the Alaska coast earlier this week, and reportedly entered U.S. territorial waters and came within 12 nautical miles of the U.S coast? I don’t think so…
According to several reports, five Chinese warships have moved into the Bering Sea near Alaska after participating in a naval exercise with Russia. Yet the consensus of analysts is that the ships are not viewed as a threat by the United States government, even as President Barack Obama is currently traveling in northern Alaska near the Arctic Circle. But could this be the actual reason?
What particularly caused concern about the behavior of the Chinese vessels was, firstly, the fact that they came within 12 nautical miles of the United States coast. This could have represented a temporary passage into US territorial waters, according to the Pentagon. Secondly, the proximity of Obama to the incident has obviously been of concern to the White House hierarchy, even if there was really no credible threat to the President.
China’s Defense Ministry also confirmed to several newspapers that its naval ships had sailed to the Bering Sea for training after a joint military exercise with Russia in late August. Officials in Beijing insisted that the activity was routine and not aimed at any particular country.
And in my opinion is the fact that, what the advances of Russia, China, and Iran all show is how weak the U.S. has become under this “fake” president who refuses to defend the U.S nation’s most basic national security interests, and fails to respond to clear provocations. Obama’s passivity is all the most striking given the timing of the Chinese incursion into Alaska, which seems to have been aimed at him personally. They are mocking Obama, along with the U.S–and he allows them to do so. Because he has no other choices as the U.S is very close to bankruptcy.
