‘No safe harbors’: China plots to block US military from key ports, Pentagon warns | Washington Examiner

As China becomes a formidable force and revamps its special forces, the nation seeks to globalize its military in areas that the US could potentially use as safe harbors. With a great deal of economic leverage, it is possible for China to block the US Navy from accessing certain ports and gain an advantage each time the US tries to deploy forces into the Indo-Pacific region. Right now, China is loaning money to impoverished areas just to gain control of their ports and railways, and continues to invest in the interest of other nations. This strategy could chain certain countries to the will of China as well as allow China to encroach on US interests even further.
