If there's no crisis, the US manufactures one. Anything to spend money on the Military-Industrial complex and take away from the 99%.
Since 2007, residents of Jeju Island, also officially designated the Island of World Peace, have been risking their lives and their freedom to prevent the construction of a naval base. This military base, if completed, will be home to both US and South Korean naval vessels and a sea-based Aegis ballistic missile defense system. At last count, more than 125 international organizations were listed as supporters of the anti-base effort.
The planned Jeju naval base facility would have a capacity for two submarines, 20 large destroyers and up to two aircraft carriers. Its purpose, as stated by both South Korean and US military officials, is to project force toward China. Many experts believe that the location of the base will provide a forward-operating installation in the event of a military conflict between the US and China. The Jeju base could become a flashpoint to trigger a large-scale military conflict between superpowers.
Up to three Aegis Destroyers will be present on the base site. That number could rise to six or even higher with occasional visits of US Aegis ships that should be expected. The base also is expected to serve as a temporary port for US submarines and carriers such as the USS George Washington, which has been involved in war-gaming exercises with the Republic of Korea Navy.
China is and will continue to be increasingly concerned about the Jeju Island naval base. The base will create far more problems than it will solve. Contrary to some misconceptions in the press, South Korea and China have positive relations. In fact, China is South Korea's No. 1 trading partner.
What would the US do if China had nuclear missiles at a Caribbean base? This is a reverse Cuban missile Crisis, with the US provoking.
Patriot missiles (Raytheon) to S. Korea and Taiwan. We make huge profits from war.
