U.S. Navy to shift 60 PER CENT of its fleet to the Pacific as China continues to build up its milit

The U.S. Navy will be sending its most sophisticated ships and aircraft to the Asia-Pacific region as it builds up its presence there.
Admiral Cecil Haney, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, said on Monday that under a policy recently outlined by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, 60 per cent of the Navy's fleet will be deployed to the Pacific by 2020.

‘It's not just numbers -- it's also what those platforms, what those units, bring to the table,’ Haney said.

The admiral cited as an example the Littoral Combat Ship, which can operate in shallower waters than other vessels. The Navy plans to begin deploying one of the ships to Singapore next year.

The EA-18G plane -- which can jam enemy air defenses and fly faster than the speed of sound -- is another. Haney said squadrons of these aircraft would be coming through the region.


Saw this today and since there was a 'hot' topic here the last couple days regarding how China would devestate the US navy in the PAcific, I thought this was relevant.

ATS Thread - China will Decimate the US Naval Fleet

Obviously, this appears to be a tactic to show their force and that the US navy is able to control or at least be able to be in all water regions around the world, and in force. It reminds of the disgusting NWO commercial for the navy...



So obviously, this is just a response to China's increasing military upgrades for not just mainland army but their Navy as well... will this lead to an increase in tension between the two countries? Or maybe just defensive positioning incase the Syria or Iran deal goes sour for the Western countries?!

Thoughts?!

ATS Threads - It's official: America's Navy is "a GLOBAL force for good",
I find this new US Navy ad incredibly creepy

Say hello to the new cold war. We needed a new Soviet era style of enemy and we got one. Watch our economy boost back up now. You could almost set your watch to it. They have become so predictable now.

It's a long time in the making. If the USA insists on being an Empire we should at least be a smart one. China has been growing stronger, unchecked, while the US has been busy playing footsy with camel-driving, backwards, waste-of-time, people in the middle east.

We should have diverted our fleets to Asian years again instead of worrying about who's throwing sand at who in the middle east.

God what a patronising advert. As if anyone believes the US Military are anything other than murderers and rapists. Global force for good my left arse cheek.

I really, really hope China steps out of the shadows and sinks any ship that dares to enter her waters.

That is fine, it is ok to reinforce the back door, just make sure someone is still watching the front.

This headline is such a joke.

Classic ploy - divert the populace's attention away from domestic issues and towards a "fabricated" external threat.

The Chinese are not a threat.

The Globalists are the threat. They pull the strings of the Western governments, foment war and ignore poverty.

www.bibliotecapleyades.net...

Go back in history and see that China seldomly invades other countries, Tibet and Mongolia being exceptions.

How many bases does the PLC have overseas? How many does the US have?

How many countries has the US invaded over the past 50 years compared with China?

People wake up, do not buy into propaganda.

This is all very bad.
I really think that TPTB have a big war planned and that this time the continental US will be bomed and invaded.
And lose the war big time. The final solution. US to become 3rd world country.
If our leaders are having a problem with each other, they should duke it out personally and not endanger their citizens.

LOL....really...how old are you? grow thicker skin. You make a blanket statement and claim that the US military are murderers and rapists and you get bent out of shape because I simply ask what country you are from. Give me a break! I was simply going to point out that every country has a checkered past. Yet you in your generalizing statement about the US military can not or will not state your country so it may be used as an example of exactly what I said. Sad and pathetic.Report away....I laugh in your general direction.

Considering how tied together we are economically, how can anyone think there would be armed hostilites between the US and China? Alot of saber-rattling and rhetoric, yes. But that's about it.

It would be economic suicide.

I wanted to post this first. It is sad day when I feel the need to post this, first.

We will lose round one...

Expect three prong attack

1) direct confrontation-

majority of surface fleet gone

2)electronic failure

supporting installations down

3)emp weapons

no electronics

(The chinese are building up)

4)Economic

no to low money- no ability to finance building

Round two however


20% of the subsurface fleet will survive

they will have to go into hunting mode, cavalry raids to protect mainland

hawaii occupied

alaska might be invaded for resources

round three

Rotation of ships on east coast to upgrade

Expect Mexico's loyalty at this point to be tested

lose vision from vast variables...


The fleet is hollow and can not sustain engagement


This can be countered however we lack the leadership at this point in the military to do what is necessary.

underwater bases-
allows resupply
allows harder to reach commands

Remove four fleets and carriers from services-
use the parts from the stripped ships and carriers to supply the remaining fleets
the bring in the hulls for testbed platforms

Retraining of upper command-
corruption and careerist demoted and and or jailed
Have forgotten mission and loyalties (proof is condition of the fleets)
purchasing reform
lower the number of Base and Pentagon commands

this is just a start

USA are a joke! I'm not generalizing with that statement to include the population of the USA, i simply mean the US Government. All they are doing now is moving around the world stirring up SH&T. They have no business being there with such force on display, it is deliberate antagonism.
I can see it now, a US frigate "accidentally strays into Chinese waters" and gets sunk, Que USA outrage and there will be the mother of all Mexican standoffs.

USA, get your own house in order first.

Ignore poverty? Ooh no. These New World Order scum actively push it upon the world in every way they can. Along with disease viruses and eugenics.

I hope the co-opted nation of the U.S doesn't attack my country again. cough cough Christchurch...... :/
