Are we in Danger : An American Warship is in Cape Town, This is why. Opinion.

In the past few days a United States Warship has come to Port in Cape Town. While Americans claim that there are a number of reasons for this, personally I'm not so sure of I believe them. Below are all the details, as well as the implications of this and finally what i believe about it.

There Reasons for sending there ship here :

The American military is one of the strongest militaries in the world. When they want to do something, they will do it. Which make me wary about there presence in our Country. According to news reports they are allegedly here to promote peace and security, However South Africa has not been involved in any wars for decades. They also claim that they are here for cultural and medical exchanges, However this could have been done with any ship and didn't have to happen with a warship.

What are the implications of this :

The United States military is infinitely strong and still regularly goes to war and invades places. The fact that they have posted a warship on the edge of our Country worries me, they shouldn't have even been allowed to do that. Having a warship right here means that if anything were to happen, they would be able to attack immediately and already have soldiers on the ground. So what does this mean for us.

Are we in danger :

While I do not believe we are in any danger at the moment, if anything were to happen in the future, we may be. War ships are powerful machines and by having one posted here they already have a headstart if a war was to begin. It also means they can be very intimidating if they please, using threats of attacks from the ship to control decisions. While I do not believe they will do this, the possibility that they can is already enough for us to realize that we shouldn't be welcoming foreign war ships to out Country. What do you think of these observations, tell me in the comments section and follow for more news as it happens.
