“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.
The source also added that the warships will not participate in the potential conflict in any way, but only observe the actions of NATO and Russian warships.
It is unclear what the Chinese warships have been dispatched to the Syrian coast. Meanwhile, social networking Vcontact cited confidential sources of information has emerged a Chinese warship project Jinggangshan (Jinggangshan) was detected when passing through the Red Sea to the Suez Canal.
"Two hours before the ship passed us in the direction of the Suez Canal. The number of ships of 999 slopes. Speed 14 knots, not much longer would have the specific information. We are currently in the Red Sea, apparently at the center "- author said.
According to the ribs and then was able to clarify this is surface warships versatile amphibious Jinggangshan (Jinggangshan) of China, can be transported by landing craft air cushion or the goods of large size.
According to information from many sources, in Syria might Version owns the air defense missile system modeled on the system of the Russian S-300 produced by China under the name HQ-9. The information is not officially confirmed, but the Chinese lander has not been detected in the port 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.
Nice. It looks so new that this might be its maiden voyage.
Just waiting to hear the news of foreign warships parked off of the east and west coasts of America.
Yes. It's frightening.
Back off, Obama, this isn’t going to end well.
Thanks again, Obama. NOT!
I remember helping "plot dots" during war games in the 90s. The Med is always stupid crowded. It was kind of like trying to have a laser tag fight in a mall at Christmas time.
Imagine being in command of a US Destroyer and getting false readings of Ivan surrounding you.
The homo moslem CIC is pathetic.
Saab yes, Saab has built an amphibious drone meant to keep submarine crews on their toes.
The Saab AUV62 is a highly sophisticated autonomous underwater vehicle that mimics a submarine, allowing navies to train for anti-submarine warfare as realistically as possible without blowing up expensive submarines.
Though its an unmanned vehicle, the AUV62′s unique acoustic payload means it will show up on sonar screens as an enemy sub. Its essentially the underwater equivalent of skeet shooting, except with torpedoes.
According to Saab, the battery-powered AUV62 can either be preprogrammed to follow a particular underwater route, using collision detection to avoid other vessels, or a remote operator can control it using either a radio or acoustic link. It can travel at speeds as fast as 20 knots, and it can descend to more than 1,640 feet below the surface. Its possible to launch the AUV62 from the shore, from a submarine, or from a ship as shown above.
Though several military customers have already ordered AUV62s for anti-submarine target practice, the undersea Saab has abilities other than getting blasted out of the water during training missions. Depending on how its configured, it can be used for minesweeping and reconnaissance. The Swedish military has already deployed the AUV62 for such purposes

Does the Chinese navy know? (^_^)
Actually I think all of the armed forces of the PRC are considered part of the "Peoples' Liberation Army", so bizarre as it seems, the description of the action given in the article is correct.
Remember that missile test a couple years ago off the Southern California coast?
I suppose something was lost in translation but wouldn’t that be the Chinese NAVY? Don’t want to put too fine a point on it but where would the Chicoms land an amphibian in the ME? Another story that probably requires the BS flag be thrown, wiped, and stuffed in the appropriate orifice of the writer.
If the Homo starts WWIII, the left would find a way to blame W and Cheney.
Paraphrasing another leftist idiot: “The only way to find out what’s in a war is to start one.”
I’d imagine that the Chinese have filled the hold with as many different kinds of surveillance equipment as they could find. If Obama gets his way, the Chinese could get info about not only US systems, but NATO, Russian, Israeli, and Iranian ones because everyone will light up when those missiles get launched.
Their navy, the ‘People Liberation Army Navy’, has a name that makes you go, “Huh?”
Kinda like a major political party in Canada (federally from 1942 - 2003 and still named that way in the provinces) called the ‘Progressive Conservative Party’... “Huh?”
Now that they have a ‘blue water’ navy, if they separated the navy from the army and created a group like the Marines, would that group be called the’People Liberation Navy Army’?
“Not in any way involved with the potential conflict”
Uhh, ok. Given there are so many ships in the area, who is to say an unfortunate accident won’t occur? I guess the Chinese would be less than amused should one of their ships end up struck.
Is this our next war? A shooting war in the Med with China and the Soviets?? America is going to be in deep trouble. Our only defense against both of them are nukes.
If humanitarian reasons were enough to intervene in a sovereign nations affairs, why arent we attacking North Korea or China? You know the answer. The Russians and Chinese possess formidable weapons technology and the willingness to use them. The Chinese have an overwhelming cyber-attack capability. So too, they possess cutting edge satellite-killing orbital weapons and space-based weapons platforms. Of interest, some Chinese satellites have altered orbits recently amazing and concerning US defense experts.
The Chinese have also perfected super-sonic, ship-killing missiles that even US aircraft carriers cant evade or defend against. The Russians have similar anti-ship missile capability, top-notch anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems combined with the most advanced military aircraft in the world. Theyve also developed a super-cavitating torpedo that creates a gas bubble in front of the fired torpedo, which allows for much greater speed than a conventional torpedo. Notice a pattern here? Speed kills in the combat environment.
The US currently has no known defense against these weapons. Our current anti-missile systems cant lock onto and destroy these Russian and Chinese missiles. Theyre too fast. We have had some success with prototype laser missile interceptors but nothings ready to be deployed. Thus, the US Navy is extraordinarily vulnerable to such attacks.
I dont have to remind you of the respective Chinese and Russian nuclear capabilites. Let me make a bold statement here. I dont think Obama would authorize a nuclear counter-strike in the event of a nuclear attack on the US. (Just my opinion.) Wed absorb the strike without a response. I have no information to suggest this, its just a gut feeling I have.
Yet one way or the other, the US is determined to attack Syria. By the way, any attack on Syria will precipitate an attack on Israel by Syria, Iran and Hezbollah. Israel will respond, possibly bringing the destruction of Damascus as described in Isaiah 17. Dont worry about Israel. They will be okay. Once Israel realizes that God is their true security, and beseech Him, He will answer.
Russia too, is reported to be ready to attack Saudi Arabia in retaliation. The US and world economy will be destroyed, no matter what else happens.
Thats the plan. Thats what this is all about. Obama cares nothing about this country. His job is to destroy it. I cant say it more clearly.
You might be thinking that were the US, were the world superpower, and somehow well prevail. Realize that a nations greatness depends on the providence of God. We are an arrogant, proud people who defy God with our wickedness. Do you think God will grant victory to a military and nation that openly praises homosexuality? To a President who pushes Islam and attacks Christianity at every chance? To a formerly Christian nation that relies solely on its own perceived might?
Does this madness make any sense? It does to Satan and those who further his agenda. The ultimate goal is subjugation of the entire world under one man: the Antichrist. Syria is the linchpin. Its where the escalating conflict starts. The rest of this year will be very interesting.
An individual that I know, a person (in the know), is particularly concerned about an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. An EMP would destroy such things as computers, utilities, communications and transportation. We would effectively be pushed on a technological level back to the 1890s. A blue ribbon panel appointed by Congress came to the conclusion that such an attack would see 90% casualty rate in the US within 18 months after the event.
If my friend is concerned, its something to consider. Read up on EMP effects.
Some would like to believe these sold-out deceivers, as they come on television and plead with us to believe their lies just one more time. The same people that lie about Benghazi, the IRS targeting Obamas enemies, the NSA spying on every American, and the Justice Department tapping reporters phones and computers. How about operation Fast and Furious selling guns to Mexican drug cartels so that the Obama Administration could point to gun violence in Mexico to justify gun control in the US?
This administration has amply proven that theyll lie, cover-up and shed blood to further their plans. To them, dead bodies are only useful props.
Beware another false flag event. If they dont get the desired public opinion turnaround to go ahead with attacking Syria, they might just pull off another, more spectacular provocation. Of course those who perpetrate such things are also in charge of the ensuing investigation. How convenient.
As example, this past week Secretary of State John Kerry was caught using a photo from 2003 Iraq, claiming it pictured the victims of the chemical attack last month. That photo was identified for what it was and promptly removed from Kerrys evidence.
Bungling incompetence or another willful lie? As Hillary would say, what does it matter? We know the character of these people. I believe nothing they say. Absolutely nothing.
Sound like we are getting all the ingredients for Armageddon.
Daymn, Ricky Nelson looks like Jack Lemmon in that picture! (And jack looks like Ricky!)
And dingle Barry wants to get rid of them.
Jeez North Korea must be getting jealous with all the attention on Syria. Maybe time for another nuke threat?
It is called the People's Liberation Army Navy.
Speaking to the Chinese Captain: That thars a mighty nice new ship. Be a shame if something were to happen to it. It’s a long way home with a broke ship.
Red China is trying to intimidate us, and can’t take us yet. But it is still a bad sign.
Do they have a PLAN?
Aside from the small matter of who would win in a USA vs. China cat&dog fight, there is the other factor that most everything used in the USA is either wholly or has components made in China.
For instance, the U.S.Military buys “Made in USA” electronics stuff which have key components made in China.
And China will continue to send the USA the technology items the USA needs but no longer makes?
