I saw a few pictures of the backlog of container ships and it hit me that they might hold something other than eBay orders. I looked, and yep, they can be used for military purposes. This is not unusual and their probably isn't an army there now. But aren't they rerouting those ships to other ports? Once that happens . . . it could be like D-Day in LA, and New York and Miami.
On June 17, Chinese government issued orders for civilian shipbuilders to ensure that five types of civilian ships, container, roll-on/roll-off, multipurpose, bulk carrier, and break-bulk cargo carriers, will be technically compliant for emergency mobilization during wartime. The official China Daily newspaper notes that the Royal Navy took similarily advantage of augmented civilian shipping during the Falklands War. Additionally, the U.S. military used Special Middle East Shipping Agreements to book air cargo space during the Gulf War.
Surprise! The Chinese Navy Just Transformed This Cargo Ship Into An Instant Helicopter Carrier
