Not wise to let China set up CA spy shop

For years Hong Kong-based Orient Overseas Container Line has been running the Middle Harbor property in Long Beach, the second busiest container port behind its neighbor to the north, Los Angeles.

OOCL has a reputation as a good steward of the port, with no controversy, but now Chinese government-owned COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited is attempting to buy out OOCL for $6.3 billion.

Printus LeBlanc, a contributing editor at Americans for Limited Government, says that purchase endangers U.S. national security beginning with military bases in the region that include Camp Pendleton, Edwards Air Force Base, and numerous naval air stations in the San Diego area.

"What looks like freighters, what looks like tankers, in reality they're spy ships," he says of the Chinese. "So if they're running the logistics of the port, they could bring their own ship in and it could be a spy ship soaking up all the radio electric signals from all the bases around there."

OneNewsNow reported as recently as a June 1 story that China views the U.S. as a major obstacle to dominating the world, even if the U.S. is slow to realize its major trading partner has war plans to defeat us.  

LeBlanc says The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States should immediately move to block the sale, pointing out that China would never allow the U.S. government to operate the Port of Shanghai, so why should the U.S. allow China to do the same.
