Containing China – Ulugan Bay

22 06 2014

Few Americans have ever heard of Ulugan Bay.  It’s in the Philippines.  The US military is coming back to The Philippines in a fast expanding effort to contain China.  A new major U.S. military base is being built at Ulugan Bay

Until the early 1990s the US had its largest overseas military bases in The Philippines – Clark Air Base and Subic Bay.  These bases were crucial to the Vietnam War and to combating the “Communist” threat of that day from “Red China”.  Now the Americans are on a new crusade to surround and contain China with military bases stretching from Korea to Japan to Australia and The Philippines.

It’s a much more complicated and multi-faceted Cold War now.  But containing and restricting both Russia and China is the new raison d-etre for the still growing military-industrial complex…in addition to “terrorism” and Iran and the overall Middle East.
