Senkaku Islands Clash 2019.
As military tensions heated up between the U.S. and the PRC and economic tariffs/sanctions bit, the PRC decided to ride the growing wave of nationalism and grab the Senkaku Islands in a bloodless invasion using limited forces (sound familiar?). As with the time before, there could not help but be a major Japanese and U.S. response...
"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem."
PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN, 1985
I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
