Just more "String of Pearls" strategy being played out in the South China Sea...

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/23/china-building-giant-island-south-china-sea-large-/#!

...ironic though, the Fedcoats and their minions in the various state and local governments here at home get all torked up whenever Mr or Mrs Smith fills in a puddle on their property...but the Chi-Com's can dump whateverthefrick they want into the ocean and build up reefs and make islands on which to build military installations and all they and those asshats in the UN do is jerk themselves off!!!

Talk about backasswards!!!   ::gaah::

Well the ChiCom's weren't goofing off out here for no reason, they are on a definite systematic program here and so far they aren't getting any pushback, so...

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/17/us-southchinasea-china-runway-idUSKBN0N723Y20150417

...get used to seeing more bold moves, there isn't anybody showing the slightest willingness to say otherwise...

...folks in this area (eventually others!) better start brushing up on their Mandarin!

I think a move like this has long been in the ChiCom "string of pearls" plan, and it is a subtle but strategic move, a more aggressive move would be a base in or near the Persian Gulf, but it would be too aggressive.  Djibouti makes sense because the ChiComs have enough basing rights established or in process going east, so interecepting traffic going through The Ditch or around the cape makes better strategic sense.

But they are still quite a ways away from being able to fully utilize the breadth of their design.

More on those man-made islands the Chi-Com's are making in the Spratley area...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-05-20/go-now-china-threatens-us-spy-planes-south-china-sea

...decent video, excellent in fact considering it is CNN...

...the Chi-Com's mean business, and all we can do is watch as they build.

Thing with those barely above sea level spots, nature can wreak havoc on them and I doubt they would be too hard to obliterate from a relatively safe distance.

Time to set off that tsunami machine?

I think if this idea of sending US warships through the disputed Spratley Island area of the South China Sea is implemented it will in large part be due to the Dear Leader looking like what he in fact is...a cowardly punk who is aiding every IslamoTerrorist scumbag there is while he destroys the rest of America from within...and he thinks sending a ship or two through here will get people off his back...

China or whoever per se is not the problem...our problem is the c*******er running the US.

Obama, tired of looking like a bed-wetter (good luck shaking that) sends a ship to go within 12 miles (the int'l limit for "legal" territory) and I don't know who is more upset...the Chinese who have nothing to be upset about or the CodePink strain of PaulBots at ZeroHedge?

Talk about a yawner, neither is going to do squat to the other...no matter how badly people might want to see it, it just will not happen.

Seriously, I don't know how the chicken-little's survived the Cold War, they should have all expired from paralyzing fear.

And the other piece of info I've been waiting for finally showed up...

The Pentagon waited for months for the White House to approve a "freedom of navigation" exercise in the South China Sea. When the Pentagon was allowed to conduct the operation, the White House placed several restrictions on the mission to minimize the risk of confrontation with the Chinese. For example, the U.S. ship was not allowed to turn on sensors or fly its helicopters, actions that military experts say would have made clearer that the U.S. was conducting a freedom of navigation operation.

After the exercise, Pentagon officials scrambled to assert the U.S. was serious about confronting China's claims that the artificial islands are sovereign Chinese territory deserving of borders and associated privileges. Some reports said the mission wasn't a freedom of navigation operation at all, but actually resembled "innocent passage," a less confrontational action.

Pentagon officials at the forum told me the White House also forbade Pentagon officials from talking publicly about the operation, but Carter confirmed it when pressed by senators at a hearing last week. Experts briefed by the Pentagon said that it was a freedom of navigation operation but that the message wasn't clear at all.

A SCoaMF is as a SCoaMF does.

I don't know what the brass is so pissy about...they act like this clown is new to the office or something...

They should have just rented a civilian cruise ship and manned the rails with nude girls...probably would have been cheaper and more effective...

Interesting.

http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htsurf/articles/20151119.aspx

I don't find it a coincidence at all that various totalitarian groups adopted the same tactics...

China using merchant ships like Islaminals use human shields, like mobs use to intimidate cowards...

Of course it is only as good as the patience of the opponent to adhere to your rules...

In the wake of the recent un-enforceable ruling against China's South China Sea expansion and island building scheme...it's now a good time to revisit a previously discussed topic in more detail - their near total monopoly of rare-earth elements.

The Chi-Com's have everybody, especially the US over a barrel...sure it help that Obama likes to put himself over a barrel on purpose and that helps a lot...but the Neo-Keynesian sellout by the Ruling Class gave China our balls on a silver platter, so naturally they feel bold on a number of fronts.  And the think is with the Chinese people seem to forget is their sheer numbers...sure their economy has serious structural issues and any collapse in the West and especially America will have serious impacts for their economy...but they have the numbers to weather it, they have to numbers to weather any military adventures that might arise...they have no qualms about losing millions of people, the West and America especially cannot say the same.

China dominates the rare-earth market and it is for economic and proprietary reasons...and the impact on defense related application cannot be understated. 

If there is to be another outbreak of resource driven wars, this could be one.  I'd be awfully nervous if I was Australia and Japan, Japan because of its dependency on others, Australia for its own reserves people lust after.

Between this and oil and precious metals...the resource wars could be warming up for an eruption.

Stealth?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-11-01/china-shows-its-new-j-20-stealth-fighter-jet

Comments on canards are correct.  It defeats stealth...and it is indicative that perhaps their flight control system is not able to handle the load of managing the aerodynamics of the type of manuvering the F-22 can do...so while the Clinton and Obama Admin's might have left some of the doors to the patent office open...or they just got it off Hillary's email server...but they failed to glean everything necessary for a true stealth/performance fighter package.

I would wager the F-22 and the F-35 can out-fly and out-stealth this guy...but the Establishment here is intent on starting a war with Russia not China...so that is that.

Chi-Com carrier deployed to South China Sea...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-26/chinese-carrier-sails-taiwan-enters-contested-south-china-sea

...obviously, not a fan of the ski-jump ramp.  If you want small carriers the Brits have the better idea with jump-jets like the Harrier and the VTOL F-35 variant, much more efficient use of space and you can have fully armed & loaded planes and conduct in-air refueling.  I'm guess the Chi-Com's aren't shooting off that jump full of gas and/or munitions, you just can't get the best wind across the deck with that wind block up there.

They're gonna need all those pearls on a string to support operations that want to conduct.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-27/china-rattles-sabre-tests-prototype-fifth-generation-stealth-fighter

...color me unimpressed.  The Chi-Com's might have dressed up this Peking Duck and made fly around and look pretty...but I didn't see any impressive maneuverability...and not because they didn't want to show it...everybody else love's to show off their birds at airshows and this was pretty tame...plus the stealth characteristics are unknown...but this fat duck looks like it has a pretty significant heat signature which is a big strike against it.

Who wrote this dreck?

 ::)

Yeah, it's got missile's with range but to get in close and cut down reaction time I'm not so sold on the stealth angle to this...no mention of hull material composition, which unless your touching it how would you know anyway...what its passive profile is is unknown...but unless the Chinese are baiting people the ass on this thing is a dead giveaway - that open screw looks like it will cavitate the crap out of the water...and that is ridiculously easy to track.

Color me only mildly impressed...

Nice to see someone at least acknowledge there is a foe in the world posing a real threat and not something invented to smear someone else in order to cover up your child sex ring!  That, and sending notice the keys to the kingdom will no longer be given to China as it had under the Hussein reign!

Have to be careful about how you approach this issue, I think it will be more presence oriented than anything direct, a cold war chess game in the Pacific. 

The free and easy times of the past eight years are over for the Chi-Com's.

Yeah, ironic since China under commie rule is without a doubt the number one polluter on the planet, but Lefties here and in Europe say CO2 is the real demon to the climate, not mere pollution...so they are OK with China making everything toxic if they can make those damned Westerners submit to their extortion.
