Communist China carries out master plan for global control of strategic seaports.... including in and near the United States
The Chinese ports proliferation has continued up to the present, with U.S. approval of the current Chinese deal to be the gatekeeper to check for radioactive materials at seaports in the Bahamas---at a time when we just wisely rejected a strategic ports deal with the United Arab Emirates' Dubai Ports World for control of ports on the East coast of the United States.
Hello....!! Chinese control of world ports---including U.S. ports---is far more dangerous than ports control by the tiny U.A.E.'s DPW.
The Chinese company that owns, controls and operates the Bahamian seaports and some on the east coast of the United States is a company closely affiliated with and partially owned by the communist Chinese government. It is a company owned by a Chinese billionaire---a known former criminal---whose empire is essentially an arm of the Chinese government/military and does business with major anti-American countries, including N. Korea and Iran.
No American port or any Western Hemisphere port that trans-ships into the United States, especially one where radioactive materials are screened befort transit here, should be owned by an anti-American communist country that deals with our enemies and is engaging in an enormous military and maritime buildup in their own country.
Me, I'm for complete American control, operation, and security-enforcement for all American seaports of entry and against outsourcing of any portion of it to potential enemies of this country. Our sovereignty and security must come first.

"Red China Attains Global Control of Ports"
"Overlooked during America's preoccupation with the Dubai ports deal is a much more imminent threat - China's methodical campaign to gain control of global ports that are strategically positioned to support military or economic actions against the United States - a move that has gone virtually unnoticed.
The powerful Chinese-owned Hutchison Whampoa Ltd. is now the world's biggest cargo terminal operator, according to London-based Drewry Shipping Consultants. It also is the world's largest port owner.
Hutchison Port Holdings has assumed control of scores of potential economic choke points, including 169 berths at 41 ports worldwide. These facilities control about 15 percent of global maritime container traffic.
Some of Hutchison's ports lie near key sea lines of communication, such as the Panama Canal, the Suez Canal and the eastern coast of the United States. Of the eight international regions with choke points labeled by the Department of Defense as "U.S. lifelines and transit regions," Hutchison has ports in six.
"Amidst the furor over a U.A.E. corporate takeover of major U.S. and Canadian seaports, scant notice has been given to the longstanding and continuing threat from the PRC/Triad [People's Republic of China and Chinese mobsters] 'business' presence at seaports around the world, including the U.S. and Canada," stated a top-level Canadian port security analyst.
"COSCO [China Ocean Shipping Co.] moved into Vancouver weeks after the liberal, Sino suck-up government of Canada inexplicably got rid of the ports police, which of course had nothing to do with the extensive personal business interests held by the then and future prime ministers.
Now they're in Halifax and the pattern is identical; they exclude everyone from their operation, and commercial port operators with dollar signs in their eyes and God knows what in their pockets blithely proclaim, 'It's good for business.' No doubt, but whose business -- and what is the business?" stated the analyst.
"Even Hillary Clinton is now decrying the installation of (billionaire) Li Ka-Shing and his Hutchison Whampoa at both ends of the Panama Canal. Too bad ethics didn't trump self-interest when the Clintons approved the deal. Maybe Hillary is just trolling for a renewal fee from her PRC benefactors. After all, there's another campaign on the horizon," noted the analyst...."
According to the October 1999 "intelligence assessment" prepared by the U.S. military's Southern Command, the Hong Kong billionaire is a "threat" to U.S. national security.
"Hutchison Whampoa's owner, Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-Shing, has extensive business ties in Beijing and has compelling financial reasons to maintain a good relationship with China's leadership," states the assessment.
"Hutchison's containerized shipping facilities in the Panama Canal, as well as the Bahamas, could provide a conduit for illegal shipments of technology or prohibited items from the West to the PRC, or facilitate the movement of arms and other prohibited items into the Americas," states the 1999 report...."
