I get that it's to send a message, but doing this now while they're doing drills worries me a bit as the chances of an incident may be a little higher
They will be quickly removed by their second or third in command if they didn't and when it comes to defying orders to defend our capital ships, especially orders given by our President. In the case of the Admiral defying Obama's traitorous stand down orders over Benghazi. I think the one who took his place is probably the most hated commander in the Navy as Obama gave him an unlawful order, as he was an admitted non American born and fake US president per his own live video speech in Kenya right after Trump took office where he said "I'm the first Kenyan to ever be US President" it's on YouTube. Trump has a ton of support in the military, way way more than probably any of us can fathom. He is setting America on the right path and people see the true evil in this country as they try desperately to hang on to control. God willing they will be arrested and never get it back.We’ve recently seen 5 or 6 retired generals even past members of the joint chiefs break military protocol and openly speak out against a sitting American president. Yes it is protocol established after the McCarther / Truman dust up. Brass are held to a higher standard on their way out because of their influence.
Remember the purge of Staff officers during Obama’s term. Over 300 left or were forced out. It is safe to assume the leadership of the military is just as politicized as the leadership in the FBI.
I question if some of these commanders would follow a legitimate/lawful authority right now.
Global Times is not exactly a reliable source either, as they are a Chinese State run media outlet. Though at least you can assume they more or less convey the opinion of the CCP.Seems subtle messaging is a lost art in China
The Global Times tweeted after two U.S. aircraft carriers conducted exercises in the disputed South China Sea on Saturday. China and the US have accused the other of stoking tension.www.dailymail.co.uk
No D Mail is not my favorite source but they do copy the tweet by Global Times in the body of article
At the very least, move manufacturing out of China and into other nations with more compatible governments, such as India. But ideally, some manufacturing should be moved locally.we need to begin starving PRC. move our manufacturing back to the good ol' USA. PRC would not be causing trouble if they could not afford to. thanks to our screwed up trade protocol, they can.
