For the first time in U.S. history, Chinese Communist troops conducted exercises on U.S. soil. The administration says this was an important opportunity for America and China to get to know each other better and build trust. But is inviting your enemies into your house really such a good idea?
The Chinese troops took part in joint “disaster relief” drills with U.S. soldiers in Hawaii on November 11-14. The operations simulated a joint response to a disaster striking a third party nation. It was billed as a lesson for the Chinese to learn about America’s ability to be “flexible” in disasters.
