A search for “coast guard” on Google News returns over 1.3 million results, and a search for the term “coach ranks” yields over 10,000.
What’s more, many of these results are from the United States Coast Guard, which is one of the most powerful forces on the planet.
The Coast Guard has a lot to answer for, and has been at the forefront of the US government’s militarisation of the oceans for decades.
In the US, Coast Guard personnel are routinely deployed to the South China Sea and other waters around the world to defend against maritime threats.
But the US Coast Guard’s current strategy of militarising the oceans is not only in conflict with international law, but also with the US national security.
“In order to have a legitimate military, you have to be a country that is capable of standing up to the US,” said Stephen Kim, a former US Navy captain and marine who is now an international relations specialist at the University of Washington.
“That means you have the ability to fight, you need the ability.
You need to have the means.”
The US Coast Guards own the most land-based aircraft in the world, and also the most surface vessels.
“The United States is the most militarised country in the entire world,” said Kim.
It’s a very dangerous position.” “
They are the most modern armed forces in the history of the world.
It’s a very dangerous position.”
The threat of conflict With the US becoming the world’s biggest military spender, and the US Navy spending millions of dollars on weapons to defend its borders, Kim said the US has an “epidemic of militarisation”.
“The US is an aggressive nation that has been militarising its own waters for decades,” he said.
“We’ve seen a lot in the past, but in the last couple of years it has been escalating.”
The escalation of the militarisation The US military has ramped up its involvement in the South Pacific, where the US is building bases and bases are being built on islands in the region.
The US has been deploying military forces to the islands for decades, and US officials have long warned of the danger of the South Atlantic islands being the site of a potential war between the US and China.
But in recent years, the US began deploying even more troops and ships to the region, including in the vicinity of the Spratly Islands, which are home to Chinese fishing vessels and other military bases.
According to the Department of Defense, US forces have been deployed to more than 100 islands in that region, and there are plans to deploy more.
This has prompted criticism from many experts that the US military is using military power to enforce its maritime claims, and is not being restrained by international law.
“If you look at the militarization that has taken place, it is a huge escalation,” said John Lott, an international security specialist at Harvard University and author of the book “The War on the Sea”.
“There is an extraordinary amount of military power that is deployed in the Southern Pacific.”
Kim said this militarisation is a reflection of the increased militarisation in the Pacific Ocean.
“It’s a huge increase in the militarism of the Pacific, but it’s also a huge amount of power deployed in a region where there’s not a lot that’s actually legal about that kind of activity,” he added.
“What is legal is the use of military force against other countries.”
Kim says there is no legal basis for the US to have any control over the islands, and he fears that if there is a war with China over the Sprats, the military will use force to protect its interests.
“This is a very important moment for US militarisation because China is an important actor in the international order,” said Lott.
“Its military has always been involved in international affairs.
If it were to invade or challenge the US in a war, it could make itself a very powerful military.”
This could make it easier for the Chinese navy to claim control of the islands.
“I don’t think there’s any question that the Chinese Navy is going to try to claim sovereignty over the disputed islands, which means that they could claim it,” said Joseph Bermudez, a professor of international relations at George Washington University.
“But I also think that there’s no legal justification for the use or use of force.”
What does international law say?
The international legal framework for the Pacific is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, or UNCLOS, which deals with disputes between nations.
In Article 12 of UNCLOSE, states agree to respect the rights of other states to the exclusive economic zone around their territory, and to prevent the exercise of their sovereign rights to control their territory.
In this context, the United Kingdom is not bound by the UNCLOSED Convention, and it is not required to abide by the laws of the land.
The United States has also signed up to UNCLOOD
