China Has A Sinking Feeling

If you think this post is about the virus then you have to have another thought because it has little to0 do with the pandemic racing across the globe.

I am NO expert on China but I have been watching their movements in the South China Sea…..

The US is concerned with the build-up of the Chinese military on the islands in the region especially those special built man made islands.

But maybe there is a chance that that situation could solve itself…….

Bejing quickly built human-made artificial islands to seize disputed territories. But now it looks like their greed and speed are coming back to haunt them.

Since 2013 the Chinese government has dredged and mostly destroyed ecologically delicate reefs in disputed waters in order to build seven major military bases complete with ports, airstrips and radar and missile installations.

This first appeared in 2019 and is being reposted due to reader interest.

The islands function as unsinkable aircraft carriers and help to cement Beijing’s claims on waters rich with fish and minerals, waters that neighboring countries also claim.

Shoddy construction plus climate change equals unstable islands.

Wait!  Climate Change?

No need to say any more than that.
