Poll Says Americans See N. Korea As Threat
The CIA is seeing a threat.
CIA issues warning on China’s military efforts
As readers may recall, I've previously discussed the threat that Hutchison-Whampoa poses to our safety.
I'd give a link to their site, but it's illegal to direct link per their copyright notice. So here's some redirection to Google.
'The billionaire chairman of Hutchison Whampoa, Li Ka-shing, was a business and political buddy of the late Deng Xiaoping and now has the same close relationship with both Jiang Zemin and the Riady financial empire of Indonesia. No doubt that's why he controls most of China's commercial ports and seaborne trade as well as most of the dock space in Hong Kong.'
Red China: Gatekeeper of the Panama Canal
This is the official HWL list of where the ports are. In other words, here is the list of ports under control of the Red Chinese according to the HWL website.
- Bahamas (2 maritime ports and an airport)
- Panama (2, each end of the Panama Canal)
- Mexico (5)
- United Kingdom (three, including one near London)
- The Netherlands (2)
- Saudi Arabia
- China, numerous of course
- Hong Kong
- Thailand (2)
- Korea (2)
They also own Husky Energy (a big firm in Canada), telecommunications networks, and about a zillion other things.
Imagine what's in those shipping containers at the Red Chinese-controlled ports on both, yes both, ends of the Panama Canal. What does it matter if their nukes can't reach mainland US from China if they can from Panama or Mexico?
