“Made in China”....Not to worry....
Despite the fact that the political decision to send warships, apparently, it was decided a long time, we know about it is just now from unofficial sources. Thus, the Chinese military blog that specializes in articles about military equipment the United States, Russia and China, said that several Chinese ships already close to the shores of Syria, citing its sources in the PLA.
The authors openly admit that the ships would not be in any way involved in a potential conflict, but only observe the actions of NATO and Russian ships.
What kind of ships were sent to the coast of Syria is unknown. Meanwhile, the social network Vkontakte citing a confidential source was reported that a Chinese ship Jinggangshan project was seen when passing the Red Sea toward the Suez Canal.
"2:00 this pepelats back among us in the direction of the Suez Canal. Board number 999. Speed 14 knots, judging therefore has specific instructions to be at some point. We are now in the Red Sea somewhere in the center, "- wrote the author.
By tail number is later found out that this is a Chinese amphibious assault ship dock Jinggangshan, which can carry on board a landing craft air cushion or other bulky loads.
Recall that, according to several sources in Syria might be Chinese counterparts S-300 systems. Meanwhile, this information officially confirmed no one, and the Chinese amphibious ships were seen in the ports of Syria.
Does the Chinese navy know?
We will be giving them an advanced look at any electronic devices we use. They will analyze those devices and figure out ways to jam them. This is one of the many reasons that any attack should have been anouced AFTER it was over.
BTW, any attack or actions on the part of the US in Syria are a BAD idea. Who would have thought I’d agree with Putin on anything?
China to send warships near Syria?
TPO - A military source specialized articles about military technology of the United States, Russia and China, based on the PLA source informed a number Chinese warships toward the coast of Syria.

Do Ngoc Inh
(According Commentary Military, Russia)
Oh boy, the clown needs to go.
Maybe Obama can start World War III?
9 is a lucky number to Chinese. 999 even moreso. They appear to be sending dual-purpose craft capable of assisting civilian evacuations...you know...if our bombing of Syria’s chemical weapons releases (gasp!) lethal clouds of chemical vapors...as well as vessels able to monitor SIGINT.
WWI was started over something just as stupid as this.
The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy. :^)
The pool is getting crowded. Everyone’s coming to the party.
“The authors openly admit that the ships would not be in any way involved in a potential conflict, but only observe the actions of NATO and Russian ships. “
Is the author the CO also? How does he know this? Silliness to believe such a thing because the author can’t make that call. The Chinese military can decide to act if they chose to - should that time come. And I do not think they owe their strategy to the newspaper.
That ship is mighty vunerable without a task force with it...
Could it be the Chinese are adding what they can to Putin’s “Red Line”?
Ricky Nelson? Oy vey.
