A total of 680 People’s Liberation Army soldiers from China have already arrived on U.S. territory boasting to Americans several massive naval warships in preparation for this weeks joint China/U.S. humanitarian-assistance drills taking place in the waters off Diamond Head Tuesday.
PEARL HARBOR (INTELLIHUB) — Humanitarian-assistance drills will take place starting Tuesday and continue on through Nov. 17th off the shore of Diamond Head, simulating the relief of a third-world nation after a devastating earthquake. The drills will be held in tandem with joint U.S. naval forces in the South Pacific waters of Hawaii.
While Washington has been selling the exercise as the improvement of foreign our ties with the Chinese, skeptics claim that these drills are an outright violation of the U.S. Constitution. In fact, the Chinese media was said to have reported the event as a first in military history, raising the eyebrows on some Americans and even Veterans just after Veteran’s Day.
The Huffington Post reported, “The guided missile destroyer Qingdao, a frigate and a supply ship were welcomed with performances by lion dancers and a children’s hula group. The ships carrying 680 officers and sailors will participate in the exercise on Monday with the USS Lake Erie in waters off Waikiki and Diamond Head.
The exercise is an important way for the two navies to share information about operations so they don’t misinterpret movements and potentially start a conflict, said Brad Glosserman, executive director of Pacific Forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.”
Some have even speculated that the Chinese Troops have arrived as part of the GridEX II drills which also coincide with the naval training dates in Hawaiian waters.
