It would seem that the recent bombing of Syria, in retaliation to a chemical attack on helpless civilians, has been a bigger shock to both Russia and China than anyone would have suspected. I guess they both forgot that Barack Obama was no longer in the White House. Trump’s no nonsense message to the world and those that have taken advantage of the lack of leadership for the last eight years appears to have brought back reality for those that have had it too easy for a decade.
But with every awakening there comes a price. Russia is all atwitter that the “Americans” would do such a thing and shocked that our Tomahawk missiles “cruised” through Russian supplied anti-missile systems. The same systems that Iran just finished paying for and installing around their peaceful nuclear facilities. As for China, They are now scrambling to insure the little fat boy in North Korea that they still support him and won’t let the Big Bad United States come and blow his little house down like they did to Syria.
So as a precaution to action agaist North Korea, according to the news agency Chosun, the “Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.” The reason they say is: the prospect of “military options”, such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, like the one the United States launched on Syria. I guess fat boy Kim is not sleeping well this week.
The move by China comes even as the United States dennounced the illegal behavior of North Korea saying they were in violation of United Nations directives regarding testing of atomic weapons and ballistic missiles. To make sure that Kim understands the U.S. Position, President Trump ordered the United States Navy’s nuclear-powered Calvinus (CVN-70) carrier class to Singapore, The Chinese army deployed about 150,000 troops in two groups to prepare for unforeseen events on the Korean Peninsula
But despite the speculation by others, the newspaper report quoted military authorities who said: the troop moves were a medical support unit for the Shenyang bulb maneuvers (the northern light bulb) now in progress.
