New satellite images have revealed that the Chinese are building up their anti-navy air power in the South China Sea.
In recent weeks, the United States has deployed several vessels to the Korean Peninsula in order to guard against North Korea and any aggressive actions they may take.
In response, China has reportedly been building up their anti-navy air power in the region in order to maintain the balance of power.
“This is the first time the KJ-500 has been deployed to Hainan, with China having previously rotationally deployed special mission aircraft detachments to the island,” Defense News reported. “These detachments are drawn from two special-mission aircraft regiments of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy, or PLAN, based in northern China.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
The beefing up of defenses in the South China Sea comes at a tense time in the relationship between the Trump administration and Xi Jinping’s Chinese regime.
The administration has been leaning on the Chinese to act in North Korea and has de-emphasized the conflict in the South China Sea, where Beijing has been attempting a land grab via increasingly-militarized man-made islands.
Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that the Trump administration was curtailing naval patrols in the disputed waters of Southeast Asia.
President Donald Trump should take note of this. China may tell us that they are a friend, but behind the scenes, they are building up and planning our destruction.
Should we be worried about China, or do you think they will fight alongside us should something happen with North Korea?
