Coast Guard Catches China, Russia Warships Just Off US Coast

It’s hard to deny that the world appears headed toward peril.  We see, each and every day, another attempted ascension of the authoritarian ethos, as nations of a tyrannical nature continue to form intrinsically terrifying new relationships that directly bolster their ability to make war against the free and Democratic countries of the world.

Of these newfound or re-vowed friendships, perhaps none is nearly as terrifying as the chummy relationship between Russia and China; two nations that have largely appeared to despise the United States, and whose human rights records are about as clean as mud puddle.

Now, as the two continue to reiterate their commitment to one another, their military drills are getting dangerously close to American soil.

A U.S. Coast Guard ship on routine patrol in the Bering Sea came across a guided missile cruiser from China, officials said Monday.

But it turned out the cruiser wasn’t alone as it sailed about 86 miles (138 kilometers) north of Alaska’s Kiska Island, on Sept. 19.

The patrol boat, known as a cutter called Kimball, later discovered there were two other Chinese naval ships and four Russian naval vessels, including a destroyer, all in single formation.

The ships weren’t misbehaving, but that didn’t deter authorities from continuing to keep an eye on the situation.

“While the formation has operated in accordance with international rules and norms, we will meet presence with presence to ensure there are no disruptions to U.S. interests in the maritime environment around Alaska,” Rear Adm. Nathan Moore, Seventeenth Coast Guard District commander said.

It would be foolish to think that China and Russia were this close to the United States without hoping to be seen, likely to send a message about their hopes for a new world order that has the far east atop the global pecking order.
