US Navy Leaders Temper Rhetoric on People’s Republic of China…CNO says “Send in the Marines”

See on Scoop.itChinese Cyber Code Conflict

U.S. Navy leaders told lawmakers they are “vigilant,” but not necessarily “worried” about the Chinese military build-up in the Pacific.

Red-DragonRising‘s insight:

Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Admiral Jonathan Greenert told the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee yesterday that the Asia Pivot Policy is working and China’s Military is NOT a threat…Admiral Greenert must not have got the memo from his Aide-de-Camp regarding the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) report on the People’s Republic of China’s Military and Security Developments…that came out YESTERDAY…


Admiral – couldn’t agree with you more, now that the Marines have left Okinawa, China is claiming Okinawa is Chinese soverign territory…really?!


I wonder if the Chief of Naval Operation actually reads or prepares for his House briefings…perhaps those new cost effective LCS with Chinese made parts are more of a concern…perhaps it is fitting that you say “Send in the Marines!”


Semper Fi,
