Feds Take Back The Long Beach Container Harbor and Military Base from the Chinese, 2019

"Sales of Long Beach Harbor and Military Base" to the Chinese.   Under Hussein.

If China is Communist who are their (((Rich)))?
Go back to the Century of Humiliation. They got taken over by the (((East India Company))). Back then Britain was just the Military power used by them.

Long Beach wasn't just a container terminal. It was a former US Navy base and a fully-functioning shipyard, with a massive drydock.

I was stationed there in 1993-1994 while serving on the USS Tarawa (LHA-1). Ours' was the last ship to be overhauled there before the base closure. Fucking asshole union shipyard workers actually sabotaged both engine rooms (I worked aft) to try to keep us from leaving, since they were set to be laid off when we left. But that's another tale for another day.

The drydock was large enough to accommodate the Tarawa, which was an 800ft-long amphibious assault aircraft carrier. Additional support buildings housed facilities that rebuilt pumps, generators and every other piece of shipboard equipment you can imagine.

I won't bother running down the entire list of buildings and capabilities. Suffice to say, it was a FULL SIZE Navy base and shipyard with one of the biggest drydocks on the planet at the time.

Point being, regardless of what was still functional at the time, the Chicoms could have very easily restored what remained and built what was needed in order to use it as an Eastern Pacific repair base for their Navy. That's in addition to whatever they had planned there.

This was not just a cargo container terminal.
