    Marines Seize Pacific Island

    As Training For War With China
    Practice makes perfect.....

    The 31st U.S. Marine Expeditionary Unit (31st MEU) seized a tiny island and airfield with special operations airmen and soldiers as part of a new island-hopping strategy.

    Last week, 31st MEU, backed by the 3rd Marine Division, 3rd Marine Logistics Group and 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, members of the Air Force 353rd Special Operations Group, and Army soldiers with 1st Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group, conducted a series of simulated military exercises attacking and seizing Ie Shima Island located off the northwest coast of Okinawa Island in the East China Sea, reported Task Purpose.

    The new military strategy, known as Expeditionary Advanced Base (EAB) Operations, will allow Marine units to seize, establish, and operate multiple small bases across the Pacific Ocean, a tactic that will be beneficial in a high-end fight with China.

    A war with China is inevitble, it may be 20 years away or 50 years away, but it will come. And, there is no reason to think that America will win it, it may lose; China is building away with its Navy, and we are not.
    So, I hope that all of the faith that America puts into high tech, can make the difference. Because our forces have been chopped into pieces; and we are probably at 2/3 of what we need, maybe 1/2.

    My father who spent his youth in the Solomon Islands always said the orientals have no problem sending wave after wave of men at you figuring you will run out of ammo before they run out of men. China has well over a Billion people and we have 350 million. A couple of emps from nukes and how much technology is going to work?

    Communists look at each life as a problem to feed, cloth and house. Loosing 85 percent of the population is no worry to them and their ability to prevail.

    They need this dirt. The Chinese can't grow enough food for their mass. So, they need ours to feed them. If they kill us all? So the better. They won't have to feed us.

    Except there's not a lot that grows in Siberia except pine and birch trees.

    Camel is absolutely correct. My theory is that the Chicoms will send millions of young males over as refugees and our stupid ass government will feed, clothe and house them. The chicom young males will gladly go to work in the Agriculture Industry and slowly take it over. Then the chicoms will send another 10, 20 ,30 million over and repeat as much as we will allow them to...eventually they will take the US over unless we stop them.

    The US is the bread basket of the world as well as has the most productive oil producing regions. You think the chicoms will give a shit about what the EPA thinks? They will farm and drill to their hearts desire...it may take 2 generations but it might happen.

    I don't think it's as long as 20 and certainly not 50. Within the next 10 years, and I am betting within 5. They aren't building assets in the pacific so they can fish. There not ready yet, but that doesn't mean they won't if provoked or see a weakness. How many of our enemies would align themselves with China if it goes hot, and they see opportunity?
