I was looking at a thread on North Korea threatening war and just had a weird and sick feeling that some of these things are connected.
March 8, 2009 - 5 Chinese Ships clash with 1 US Ship in the South China Sea
March 19, 2009 - China urges North Korea back to Negotiation table. It is reported that Russian aircraft twice overflew the US aircraft carriers
patroling off the coast of S. Korea.
March 20, 2009 - China increases naval forces by posting presence in the South China Sea. N. Korean leader will visit China after April 15 and missile
launch will happen between April 4 - 8.
March 24, 2009 - N. Korea warns US & Japan over shooting down missile test launch.
March 25, 2009 - S. Korea protest to China about the N. Korea missle test next month. A report indicates a new Chinese Submarine base has gone
operational on Hainan Island.
March 26, 2009 - China and US clash over an American Report on growing Chinese military threat angered Chinese Officials.
March 27, 2009 - N. Korea moves missile to launch pad. Japan orders battleships and missile interceptors to its north coast to defend against errant
March 30, 2009 - US, Japan and S. Korea missile destroying task force sets out to sail.
March 31, 2009 - N. Korea threatens war with Japan if missile is shot down. US warns of "consequences" if N. Korea launches missile. Report that
Russia is building 6 new nuclear submarines. China reportedly has developed a "Kill Weapon" missile to destroy US carriers.
It appears that China is trying to deflect attention away from their sub base and new weapons development by having N. Korea act up or could they be
luring the US & Japan into a ambush???
