Following a recent uproar surrounding the Obama administration’s hosting of Russian airborne terror troops for joint drills with U.S. military forces in Colorado, outrage is growing about the latest scandal involving foreign forces on American soil. This week, reportedly for the first time ever, soldiers for the mass-murdering Communist Party regime ruling mainland China have been working on “disaster management” with American troops on U.S. soil — supposedly for “humanitarian” purposes. Western analysts and commentators expressed alarm over the developments, but the ruthless dictatorship in Beijing touted the scheme widely across its propaganda organs.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which recently announced broad cooperation with Russian authorities, is also involved in the joint drills between American and Chinese forces. According to officials and news reports, the exercises, currently underway in Hawaii, began on November 12 and will run for two days. Among other elements, the communist regime’s “Ministry of Defense” was cited in Beijing propaganda outlets as saying that the major subjects would include “weapon demonstration, technique exchange, and cooperative action.”
Lt. Col. Jeffrey Pool, a spokesman for the Pentagon, denied to The New American that any weapons were involved. Instead, he said the U.S.-China exchange dealt exclusively with humanitarian-oriented endeavors such as learning to set up refugee camps, rescue survivors, and similar operations. According to a statement sent by e-mail, the scenario involved U.S. and Chinese forces providing “disaster response assistance” to a fictional third country. The latest scheme also marks a significant expansion over previous annual exchanges, which have occurred since 1998 but have not included field exercises on U.S. soil.
“This exchange is a meaningful area of cooperation that is part of an already healthy program of military-to-military engagement between the United States and China,” Lt. Col. Pool said in the statement. “This exchange between the U.S. and [People’s Republic of China] PRC militaries builds cooperative capacity that enhances our ability to respond collectively to disasters.” It will also promote “greater understanding of our respective military institutions in ways that dispel misconceptions” while advancing “common approaches to global challenges by building productive working relationships,” he added.
