Is China Conducting Intelligence Operations As A Prelude For An Attack On Pearl Harbor?
Guest post by Lawrence Sellin, Li-Meng Yan and Ding-Gang Wang
Starting in 2015, a Chinese real estate development company called China Oceanwide Holdings began buying land on Oahu in the Hawaii Islands just ten miles west of the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor.
The stated intent of the land purchases was to build a luxury hotel and homes, but nothing was ever built, even though China Oceanwide had accumulated land worth over 500 million dollars in the vicinity of Pearl Harbor.
A July, 2022 article in The Federalist noted that buyers from the People’s Republic of China purchased $6.1 billion in real estate last year, many of those purchases have been of farmland or ranchland near U.S. military bases.
Telecommunications equipment from China’s Huawei positioned near U.S. military installations could disrupt vital military communication systems.
China has been steadily acquiring strategic real estate in the United States, such as 300 acres in Grand Forks, North Dakota, 16 miles from the U.S. Air Force’s Air Combat Command base, and a 130,000-acre ranch near Laughlin Air Force Base, purchased by a former member of China’s People’s Liberation Army.
U.S. national security is being undermined.
