What the U.S. Department of Defense does not tell you about the Spratley Islands and China
What the U.S. Department of Defense does not tell you about the Spratley Islands and China.
We want to report to you images and statistics because the majority of people are not going to
look into for themselves. What the United States is doing is a power play. In fact the Secretary
of Defense, Ash Carter said that himself. That America wants to show it’s power to China and the
The Spratly Islands are located in the South China Sea. Surrounded by China, Taiwan, Vietnam,
Indonesia, Malaysia, Signapore, and the Phillippines.
The South China Sea is accessed by (the Indian Ocean / Pacific Ocean) either the Phillippines Sea (east of the Philippines and South of
Japan, North of Papua New Guinea)
Also by the way of the Java Sea by way of the Banda and Arafura Sea (Northern
Australia). Also trade routes can enter by way of the Philippines Sea through the Celebeas Sea,
through the Makassar Strait, through the Java Sea to the South China Sea.
We found one reef/island (Swallow Reef) that is 1km by .18 km (6th of a mile x a 10th of a mile)
with and airstrip
One of the reefs the Chinese build an airdtrip on is called Fiery Cross Reef 3.7km x .87km (2.2
Miles (NM) x .54 NM possibly two runways at about .25km (.15 NM) in length. One runway is owned
by Vietnam. The media does not tell you this information.
Another reef the US Itellegence says has build up of Chinese dredgig esels is called Mischief Reef
about 6km x 8km (3.7NM x 4.97NM).
Island tracker a site that has frequent updates which tracks island reclamation
activities in maritime Asia. Shows this information.
There are about nine total reefs the Chinese have interest in. But 20 of them Vietnam has control
of and two of them the Vietnamiese and Chinese work together with. The Phillippines has control
of seven, Malaysia three and Taiwan one. All five countries have landing strips on different reef
Islands, but you do not hear about that in the news.
Now lets talk about someting else, the area of the Islands that the media does not talk about.
The water distance between Vietname and Fiery Cross Reef, the one with a Chinese Airstrip on, has
280 Nautical miles of water between them. This is plenty of room for ships to travel with trade.
Why is the U.S. Navy so close, 12 NM to Fiery Cross Reef ?
“To show power and provicate China”
according the words of Ash Carter the U.S. Defense Secretary himself.
This untold story shows how the capitalist United States really is.
