As China War Looms, Navy’s Priority is Going ‘Green’

“As Secretary of the Navy, I have made climate one of my top priorities.”

Front Page:
The “age of American naval dominance is over”, Jerry Hendix, a former Navy Captain warned in a high-profile article in The Atlantic.

Hendrix’s article imagines a scenario in which China or other enemy nations seize control of what are now international waters and the cargo that moves across them. “The great container ships and tankers of today would disappear, replaced by smaller, faster cargo vessels capable of moving rare and valuable goods past pirates and corrupt officials.” A handful of nations would end up controlling the chokepoints of international trade and America would not be one of them.

Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro has already conceded China’s naval supremacy.

Last month, the Biden appointee stated that China has “got a larger fleet now so they’re deploying that fleet globally.”

The People’s Liberation Army Navy topped the US Navy in 2020. By 2025, it will have an estimated 400 ships. We’re still below 300.

Biden’s current defense plan is to have 350 by 2045. And by then we will have lost.

“They have 13 shipyards, in some cases their shipyard has more capacity — one shipyard has more capacity than all of our shipyards combined. That presents a real threat,” Del Toro conceded. “They’re a communist country, they don’t have rules by which they abide by.” more

  1. Too much hyperbole. Our Navy and Air Force are in good shape despite the wokeness of the leaders. Definitely continue with R&D to stay cutting edge, but anything more would be a waste of money. Keep patrolling the air and seas around our nation; bring the ground troops home to protect the border.

  2. This is not the same Navy that I served in just a short 50 years ago. And what pray tell has going green got to do with ruling the seas? It’s time that the Secretary of the Navy be forced to walk the plank in shark infested waters preferably over the Marianna’s Trench and to let Davey Jones and Neptune take care of this lousy commie bastard.

    #Say there mister Commander in Chief, how’s that ‘Pandering to Parasites’ thingy workin’ out for ya?#

    Great, thanks, I’m richer than ever and still the boss of you!

  4. Everything will be fine after they convert all ships to electric power.
    Can you imagine the size of battery it will take to power them!
    Just don’t get them near water

  5. “They’re a communist country, they don’t have rules by which they abide by.”

    We have long ago reneged on the rules that we should ‘abide by’.
    Thus we too became a communist country. QED

    Navy (and the US) could thrive if we jettison the usurping cabal.
