From China, With Love

U.S. Missiles Deployed Near China Send a Message

If China's satellites and spies were working properly there would have been a flood of unsettling intelligence flowing into the Beijing headquarters-MSS division last week. A new class of U.S. super weapons had suddenly surfaced in China's backyard. Alarm bells sounded in Beijing June 28 when the Tomahawk-laden 560-foot USS Ohio popped up in the Philippines' Subic Bay, the USS Michigan arrived in Pusan, South Korea, and the USS Florida surfaced the same day at the joint U.S.-British naval base near Thailand. The Chinese military awoke to find as many as 462 Tomahawks cruise missiles, capable of hitting anything within 1,000 miles deployed by the U.S. in its neighborhood. "There has been a decision to bolster our forces in the Pacific," says Bonnie Glaser, a China expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. "There is no doubt that China will stand up and take notice."

The submarines aren't the only new potential issue of concern for the Chinese. Two major military operations included 20,000 personnel and 73 ships from the US and 14 nations were involved in the missile exercises. More than three dozen naval ships and subs began participating in the "Rim of the Pacific" war games off Hawaii on Wednesday. The military exercises are billed as the world's largest-ever naval war game as a result of China's growing missile force, now more than 1,000 near the Taiwan Strait. The Tomahawks' arrival sends a signal that no doubt Beijing got the message.

Able Danger

Excerpt from Chapter 7-The New American Century Project

“Today we are setting the predominant security strategy relevant to China's recent actions resulting from intelligence providing significant information on the build up their defense systems. The transformation objectives identify our first priority for the defense of US territory against a broad range of asymmetric threats, so we don't get caught off guard in the event of a surprise attack. The contingency defense plan includes the following:

(1) The completion of necessary facilities for a small fleet of Dolphin-type submarines stationed in Guam.

(2) The 6th fleet has open orders to patrol the east and south China sea.

(3) Reconnaissance flights will continue over Hainan Island indefinitely.

(4) Several nuclear-powered aircraft carriers have established port in Japan.

(5) The Fighter Tactical Squadron part of the Mission Support Group is on alert in Taiwan.

Gentlemen...George and I have outlined the framework to destabilize China for the 21st century. Reports indicate the PRC is planning to obtain a massive defense capability. Further intelligence reveals that the People's Republic has initiated a strategy to raise billions by taxing the US factories on China's soil. As you know, these factories manufacture ninety-five percent of all American products.”

Donaldson flips the page of notes he's reading from and looks at Reece looking at him with uncertainty.
“The American consumer is funding China's appetite for defensive weapons. That's what we know. What we have here...we have a quagmire. Add in our strategic policy with Taiwan and we're facing a world of them and us which exponentially could be disastrous. The US strategy for the New American Century has been cast. Our nation can't afford amateur hour in the White House! So remember...a lack of precision is dangerous when the margin of error is small.” Get your Copy of ABLE DANGER now available in
