  • China Seeks ‘Hegemony’ in Asia: Adm. Harris, PACOM

    Someone finally pointed out that emperor is not wearing any clothes! Arguments can be made that the Navy is looking for funds but the fact is that Uncle Sam's Canoe Club (otherwise known as the Navy) always has a mission, and the PRC is justifying the requested monies admirably.

    WASHINGTON: The gloves came off during today’s Senate Armed Services committee hearing on China and North Korea with Pacific Command’s Adm. Harry Harris saying that China seeks “hegemony in East Asia” and is unequivocally militarizing the South China Sea.

    “In my opinion, China is clearly militarizing its position in the South China Sea. You’d have to believe in a flat earth to believe otherwise,” Harris told the committee this morning. But Chinese president Xi Jinping continues to claim that China is not militarizing the South China Sea, even though his regime is violating international law by building these islands in the first place, are building military-length runways on them and are stationing missiles and advanced radar sets on them.

    Good article. Can only concur with the good admiral's assessment.
