It looks like the Kings of the East are growing into their shoes as a new report is indicating that China is building its first overseas military outpost just miles from the largest US military base in Africa. The Chinese naval base in Djibouti is positioned on a 90-acre plot of land and expected to be completed next year, according to the Wall
Street Journal.

China’s construction of the base represents one of Beijing’s latest efforts to establish itself as a global maritime power. The Chinese naval base is close to Camp Lemonnier, the US base in Djibouti, which supports roughly 4,000 US and allied military and civilian personnel and defense contractors. It is the primary base of operations for US Africa Command. CONTINUE
