International Navy Update

Interesting item from Hong Kong Kuang Chiao Ching :

Information sources from the US Congress and Navy reveal that US forces will transfer four Ohio-class ballistic missile nuclear submarines, which have been stationed for years in the Atlantic Ocean and were originally targeted against Russia, from the naval submarine base Kings Bay, headquarters of Submarine Force Atlantic Fleet, on the east coast of the United States, to the Bangor Submarine Base on the Pacific coast. After that, depending on the situation in the unforeseeable future, the navy will deploy an additional nuclear submarine of the same class to Bangor Base, thereby changing the ratio of US ballistic missile nuclear submarines in the Atlantic and the Pacific from 9:5 to 5:9. With the changes in deployment of forces, more attack nuclear submarines will be transferred to the Asia-Pacific region. This shows that the US military has thoroughly discarded the strategic principle, which had been in place since the Cold War, of prizing Europe over Asia, and has clearly established the national strategy of prizing Asia over Europe that has been brewing since the 911 incident. Simply and flatly put, this is a change from targeting Russia in the past to targeting China more. (my emphasis).

Also, today Russia celebrates the 101st anniversary of her Navy submarine forces establishment.
