Despite the fact that the US and China are seemingly bumping heads on many different fronts including the financial world, the internet and in the world of war, China will be sending 3 warships to the US that will be docking in Florida at the Mayport Naval Station from November 3rd to November 7th according to this story from Zero Hedge and the 1st video below from Spiro.
With the recent announcement that China's ally Russia has been disturbing the US with their ships near our underwater cables, we have to ask how close we are to a potential WW3 and why would we allow warships from our potential WW3 adversaries into our harbors? Is this a setup for an invasion? We also need to remember that only a little over a month ago, China released a very disturbing video that showed China attacking the US as shared in the 2nd video below.
According to the US Naval Intelligence, the three ships that will be docking in Florida are a Type 052C Luyang II-class guided-missile destroyer Jinan (152), the Type 054A Jiangkai II-class guided-missile frigate Yiyang (548) and the Type 903 Fuchi-class fleet oiler Qiandao Hu (886).
While we're told that sailors from both the US and Chinese will interact during their time here, participating in sporting events and interacting during ship tours, the visit isn't sitting well with some politicians in the US, especially after Barack Obama seemingly had his bluff called by China after threatening to send ships to the South China Seas by not following up upon his threat. From Zero Hedge.:
The most interesting news is that according to the US Naval Institute, despite much posturing, the Obama administration has not yet dispatched ship toward China, and instead has been merely weighing for weeks whether or not it will send a freedom of navigation mission within 12 nautical miles — the internationally recognized maritime border — of features in the Spratly and Paracel China has reclaimed from the sea.
It would appear that Obama was once again all talk and once China threatened to call the U.S. bluff and warned it would use force, the US desire for confrontation promptly evaporated.
Why is the US allowing China warships to dock in Florida? Is this a setup for a massive attack upon America or another false flag? The mere fact that Russian warships have been spotted near our underwater cables is understandably disturbing. We learned from the NY Times story on this development that if those cables are cut, that would likely completely cut off the US from the rest of the world on the communications front. Think no more internet, no more phones, no communications between our military at home and our military overseas. Have Russia and China put the US into 'checkmate' as argued in this story from Sputnik News? While we do not have all of the answers to those questions, these latest developments are clearly bothersome. From the NY Times story.:
Russian submarines and spy ships are aggressively operating near the vital undersea cables that carry almost all global Internet communications, raising concerns among some American military and intelligence officials that the Russians might be planning to attack those lines in times of tension or conflict.
The issue goes beyond old worries during the Cold War that the Russians would tap into the cables — a task American intelligence agencies also mastered decades ago. The alarm today is deeper: The ultimate Russian hack on the United States could involve severing the fiber-optic cables at some of their hardest-to-access locations to halt the instant communications on which the West’s governments, economies and citizens have grown dependent.
