(TotalConservative.com) – The Wall Street Journal is reporting a new Chinese military training facility in Cuba, just 100 miles off the U.S. coast. Their analysis sources information from “current and former U.S” authorities with knowledge of the matter who believe the deal is in its final stages before implementation. They also suggested that the Biden administration was pressuring the Cuban government to deny the deal, but there has been no official comment from the White House.
The article suggested that officials fear the entrenchment of an intelligence apparatus or a permanent military base in China, perhaps taking a cue from the U.S. which maintains roughly 500 military bases around the world. Further claims include that the initiative is part of China’s “Project 141” which involves the expansion of military facilities all over the world.
China currently maintains four “eavesdropping stations” according to the unnamed officials cited in the report, this new base would dramatically expand their military reach and capabilities in the region. As of 2019, there was only one of those stations, indicating that China has been expanding its reach into Cuba.
The report comes just one day after Secretary of State Anthony Blinken met with Chinese officials for two days of meetings in China. The meetings have largely been mocked as China leading the Biden administration around on a leash, taking a chastising tone toward the U.S. representatives while suffering no consequences for their spy balloon and other shenanigans.
China has repeatedly antagonized the U.S., from using honey-pot operations to beguile American politicians to their belligerent behavior toward Taiwan. As recently as April, Chinese police stations were raided and shut down by U.S. authorities. It seems as if the Chinese Communist Party fears no consequences from the current crop of U.S. leaders. Recent revelations of money laundering and other shady deals by Joe Biden’s family may partially explain his administration’s tolerance for Chinese aggression.
