More than 70 percent of Earth is covered by oceans and smaller seas. Doesn’t this fact give appropriate cause for the United States to have the strongest and most dominant navy?
The State Department is concerned that China is greatly improving its navy with state-of-the-art technology with a short-term goal of stopping, disrupting and/or delaying U. S. intervention in conflicts. This would be devastating to the United States. America’s allies and most important shipping lanes in the world would become at the mercy of the communist Central Chinese government.
The “super high tech” DDG-1000 stealth destroyers are currently in production. It is America’s answer to quell a rising China. However, Congress nearly scrapped the whole program and reduced the original order of 32 stealth destroyers to 24, then to seven ships. Now, just three are in the works. The United States made a huge mistake in cutting short Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” Strategic Defense Initiative, and now, America is going to do it again. But this time, at sea.
This is just another step in the process of America becoming a Third World puppet under the authoritative umbrella of communist China. It is disgusting and hurtful to every true American.
