US Plans Naval Blockade to Islands in South China Sea At his confirmation hearing with the Senate, the President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, likened China's island-building to Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and added that US should block China from newly build islands in the South China Sea. He said: "We're going to have to send China a clear signal that first, the island-building stops and second, your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed. They are taking territory or control or declaring control of territories that are not rightfully China's”. He added that China’s actions were “extremely worrisome” and the U.S. failure to respond “has allowed them to keep pushing the envelope” in seas that carry $5 trillion of trade annually. A Naval blockade happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis, in October 1962. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev decided to agree to Cuba's request to place nuclear missiles in Cuba to deter future harassment of Cuba. An agreement was reached during a secret meeting between Khrushchev and Fidel Castro in July 1962 and construction of a number of missile launch facilities started later that summer. These missile preparations were confirmed when an Air Force U-2 spy plane produced clear photographic evidence of medium-range (SS-4) and intermediate-range (R-14) ballistic missile facilities. The United States established a military blockade to prevent further missiles from entering Cuba. It announced that they would not permit offensive weapons to be delivered to Cuba and demanded that the weapons already in Cuba be dismantled and returned to the USSR. After a long period of tense negotiations, an agreement was reached between President John F. Kennedy and Khrushchev. Publicly, the Soviets would dismantle their offensive weapons in Cuba and return them to the Soviet Union, subject to United Nations verification, in exchange for a U.S. public declaration and agreement never to invade Cuba again without direct provocation. Secretly, the United States also agreed that it would dismantle all U.S.-built Jupiter MRBMs, which were deployed in Turkey and Italy against the Soviet Union but were not known to the public.

Rex Tillerson has been picked by President-elect Donald Trump as Secretary of State, one of the most important voices for the United States in its relations with the wider world. Although respected for his achievements and abilities, the choice of Tillerson as Secretary has been challenged on two main points: his relationship with Vladimir Putin (friends for 15 years, a “close” relationship by Tillerson’s account) and his position on climate change (“a risk” we “have to manage” but which is “inconclusive” according to studies, none of which studies have proven “able to predict the future.” Here Tillerson answers these two questions (This video and the other one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s173XPqw8M&feature=youtu.be ) From: Texas BBA VIP Distinguished Speaker Series, February 9, 2016: ExxonMobil CEO Red Tillerson, expected to be President-elect Donald Trump’s Secretary of State Resources: The full hour-long interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEPVy4OGO6M Texas BBA channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsHHQGSZ4GuckGlOIGYf-sA Article on this: http://coolstuffinterestingstuffnews.com/rex-tillerson-explains-his-relationship-with-putin-and-his-position-on-climate-change/ Subscribe to our channel
