Eyes on the Pacific



Eyes on the Pacific

As politicians do what politicians do and prepare for America’s national sport, which is politics, and our marathon 2-year presidential campaign, United States armed forces are focusing our military might on the Western Pacific Basin. The reason can be summarized in one word: China!

A lot of timely information is being tweeted these days. The fact that much of it is coming from United States Indo-Pacific Command, U.S. 7th Fleet, U.S. Army Pacific and U.S. Pacific Air Forces lends total credibility to what is also being put out by expert analysts in the region.

Rather than trying to paraphrase or summarize it in my own words, here are some pertinent recent tweets:

The United States is working with our allies in East Asia including Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Philippines to counteract North Korean, Chinese and Russian adversaries. Now, even Iran has pledged to back China in the Spratly Islands dispute.

American Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen along with warships and fighter aircraft are being deployed to support our allies against mutual enemies. U.S. military assets are also assisting with humanitarian projects in the current and former U.S. territories in the Western Pacific. Everywhere, there is a competition for influence.

Perhaps not since World War II has there been such a significant military presence around the entire Pacific Basin and Pacific Rim. Fortunately, right now it is still just a cold war. But in case things go kinetic, the United States is prepositioning military forces along with their conveyances and armaments in strategic locales throughout the Pacific Theater.

In this nuclear age, no one ~ with the possible exception of the apocalyptic regime in Iran ~ wants to initiate such a cataclysmic conflict. But neither can we sit idly by and watch hostile powers invade our Pacific domain. Hawaii and especially Guam and CNMI are U.S. soil at the tip of the spear.

Petition Capitol Hill for Term Limits

Sign the petition. We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
