China expanded into the South China Sea as we know, building islands and arming them. They are now expanding into the South Pacific.
They have already taken over the Solomon Islands. While Joe Biden pushes proper pronoun usage, the Solomon Islands made a deal with China.
The Solomon Islands denies that China will be able to establish a military base on its territory. But the accord appears to allow for military police deployments from the People’s Liberation Army and possible naval access, The South China Morning Post reports.
The deal with China, judging from a leaked draft, spells out a system for the Pacific country to request assistance from Chinese police, armed police, military personnel, and other armed forces. Australia, also asleep at the wheel, was allegedly surprised by this aspect of the deal.
According to the draft text, the agreement would give China an avenue to “make ship visits to, carry out logistical replenishment in, and have stopover and transition in the Solomon Islands”, while Chinese forces could also be used “to protect the safety of Chinese personnel and major projects in the Solomon Islands”.
We lost 1600 soldiers, and more than 4,600 were injured to free the Solomon Islands. This past week, when a US ship asked to refuel, the Solomon Islands would not respond to the US request.
China isn’t stopping at the Solomon Islands
There are little islands 1800 miles south of Hawaii now under China’s control. They seek to build an airbase there.
The Republic of Kiribati (once called Tarawa) has a 20-year vision that looks set to be integrated into China’s Belt and Road Initiative. It gives highest priority to building two ‘transhipment hubs’—major ports in a tiny country that has no economic market for such facilities.
According to National Interest, one hub is planned at the capital of Tarawa Atoll in the west, which was the site of the first major amphibious landing by US forces in the push against Japan during World War II. The second is planned at the strategically located Kiritimati (‘Christmas’) Atoll in the east, directly south of Hawaii and the major US bases in that area.
The Battle of Tarawa in November 1943 in the modern-day Republic of Kiribati was one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Human remains are uncovered to this day. According to the Smithsonian, the nonprofit organization History Flight located the graves of 30 marines and sailors in the Pacific atoll of Tarawa.
As a long time former listener to Radio Australia (until the nation became self destructive woke) I heard much about the Solomon Islands. They were close friends. I had no idea about this. The leftist destructive Australian leaders can and will ruin everything and profit immensely from it. Australia has a depressed economy from being turned into a Warsaw Ghetto, China has risen from the covid scare, the Islands went for the money.
joe IS in charge…who’s kidding whom???
Obama is pulling the puppet Joe’s strings.
The Chinese offered a deal they could not refuse.
Are they thinking of a Japanese style Pearl Harbor attack?
The way this nation is turning, it will not be necessary.
