Chinese warships spotted off the coast of Alaska

President Obama isn’t the only one making a visit to Alaska this week, according to a new report from Pentagon officials. The U.S. military has spotted five Chinese navy ships off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, heading in the direction of the Aleutian Islands. The presence of the Chinese ships, including three combat ships, a replenishment vessel, and an amphibious ship, marks the first time that the U.S. military has reported seeing “any such activity in the area,” The Wall Street Journal reports.

Although China’s defense ministry could not be reached by the Journal for comment, the presence of Chinese warships close to U.S. territory is likely connected to China’s efforts to ramp up its military activity as its economic power expands. “I don’t think we’d characterize anything they’re doing as threatening,” one defense official told The Wall Street Journal.

    It figures that an official in this administration would not see this as aggression, they haven’t gotten anything right in the past…

      Open seas, and I hope they are being watched and tracked……You can bet when we are off their coast they are in a state of paranoia….

        OBAMA GAVE OUR OCEANS TO THE UNITED NATIONS TO BE CONTROLED BY THEM. CHINA IS NOT OUR ENEMY. THEY MAY BE JUST FLEXING THERE POWER AND THEY HAVE GOOD RELATIONS WITH RUSSIA. IF ONE SHOT FROMA CHINES SHIP WAS FIRED , OUR NAVY AND AIRFORCE WILL SINK THEM TO DAVY JONES LOCKER. PLUS THEY IMPORT GOODS TO OUR COUNTRY. THEY MAKE ALOT OF MONEY FROM US. THEN WHO KNOWS MAYBE THERE IN CAHUSTE WITH RUSSIA.

          If a nuke was launched close to our shores we wouldn’t have time to prevent it.
          So if iran came with their ships to our shores would you have a problem?

            Germany would not.
            Remember – Iran was a Nazi stronghold in WWII.
            IRANIAN NAZIS !!!
            Who are they kidding ?
            I’m NOT afraid to say it .
            I’d bet it STILL IS !!!!
