    I think that the reporter went a bit too far on this. An airbase in the Atlantic, posing a threat to the US and it;s allies.

    Even if the Chinese were to get access to the base, do they have the resources to defend it all the way from the motherland. Had it been in the Pacific , one could have thought about it, but the seriously in the Atlantic?

    Some where in Li Na's imagination
    Another "masterpiece" by Gordon Chang... smh This guy would be better placed working with Tom Clancy where his imagination could run free rather than being an actual defense watcher.

    Gordon Chang is the Chinese version of Arundhati Roy
