There has been another encounter with Chinese military jets in international airspace. Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of the U.S. Pacific Command has taken no action, other than bluster and puffing, against the Chinese for their aggressive and extremely dangerous 'attack' on a U.S. Navy P-8 anti-submarine warfare aircraft. Admiral Locklear is a friend of B.H. Obama Jr., and the usual timid type of officer that seems to rise in the military today. Of course the Pentagon makes the ultimate call on issues, but this department of the Federal Government has also been taken over by overtly timid leaders. But Locklear is a pacifist and apparently is not worthy of such an important command.
It is time for the U.S. to either take extreme defensive action against all aggressive air 'attacks' over international airspace, or to give up, and bring the fleet home. The Chinese military are still laughing, and will continue to harass U.S. military craft until someone with guts and foresight takes the drastic action that is needed to curtail further harassment. Admiral Locklear should stand down, and retire because of his lack of aggressive leadership. And for those of you who might feel that I am being too 'hard' on Admiral Locklear, please remember that he has said that the greatest worry for America is climate change (global warming to liberals). And just where does he think the Chinese military rates?
