In Dramatic Escalation, China Sends Five Navy Ships Off Alaska Coast For First Time Ever

I’ve been telling you for several years that US sabre rattling would lead to something like this. The problem is USA military superiority is nowhere near as complete as washington likes to think. In fact the Obama administration’s own military analysis have warned their country could not win a war against Russia and China.

Which makes one wonder why the Lawyers of Capitol Hill have continued tp provoke the eastern powers for so long.

Five Chinese navy ships are currently operating in the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska, the first time the U.S. military has seen such activity in the area, Pentagon officials said Wednesday.

The officials said they have been aware in recent days that three Chinese combat ships, a replenishment vessel and an amphibious ship were in the vicinity after observing them moving toward the Aleutian Islands, which are split between U.S. and Russian control.

They said the Chinese ships were still in the area, but declined to specify when the vessels were first spotted or how far they were from the coast of Alaska.

The Pentagon official said there were a “variety of opinions” on how to interpret the Chinese ships’ deployment.

“It’s difficult to tell exactly, but it indicates some interest in the Arctic region,” the official said. “It’s different.”
