‘Pentagon freaks creep into China’s backyard’

The first rotation of about 200 US marines has arrived in Australia on a six-month training deployment. A total of 2,500 troops are expected to arrive over the next few years in Darwin to enhance the US’s military presence in the Asia-Pacific – it adds to America’s military footprint in such countries as Japan, the Philippines and Singapore – all in China’s backyard. For more on the story RT talks to Asia Times roving correspondent Pepe Escobar.

We have troops in South Korea to counter balance the crazy leaders in North Korea.

To RT, I like your news in general but RT should be more picky about who it uses as resources. If this fellow has claims of American and Chinese intentions, he should provide objective evidence, rather than throwing out thoughts rattling around in his head like they are hard evidence. This kind of interview is not journalism, it is simply lazy.

Pepe Escobar is well respected and if you check his blog I'm sure all the links are there to back up his statements. You are the lazy one. Who would you suggest they use? Some Jew controlled western mouth piece no doubt.

And why do we have troops in Germany and 187 other countries mr know it all?

He will only be able to back up the statements he makes if he can read the minds of the leaders of those respective countries, which is unlikely. Wow, what rock did they drag such an eloquent act such as yourself from under?

Do the idiots who present this think that AUSTRALIA whose economic well being has been fostered by trade with China is doing this for any other reason than to act as insurance against Chinese aggression? SO what should Australia do ? Let China take over? And is not China exerting pressure on other nations, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore ? To say that CHINA does not have an expansion policy in the South China sea is crap – ask any Philippino actually!

Beware of military industrial complex, that's what the late President Eisenhower warned during his farewell speech. Careful, those contractors will reach in to your wallet just to fund the so-called "respected" soldiers to die for nothing. After-all, most modern warfare got good history itself of starting with one good lie and ends with a river of blood.

I wonder how a Rothschild-Illuminati agent still able to live within a Muslim community that HATED Israel. Watch your words from now on, because we the peoples of the world know who you serve, Rothschild agent.

China is the one acting aggressively over its neighboring countries,you think those small countries can do anything against that giant bully?the only thing they can do is ask for help in UN for mediation,which the philippines has been doi9ng all along,America just preparing because Phil and US has a mutual defense treaty…China already exploring and using the resources in the contested area even though its not been settled yet…which is an act of hostility,if a war should broke it will only be the fault of China..
