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