•, by Cameron Arcand

The People's Liberation Army Navy, the incredibly ironic name for the Chinese Communist Party's naval force, has added 11 new amphibious ships to its fleet, according to Forbes.

While these ships are just a small component of China's large fleet, Forbes reported that the nation has carefully been setting the framework in place to revamp thousands of civilian ships for militaristic purposes.

The CCP is slowly gathering control of the nation's commercial shipping through legal steps, as engineers have begun to make key modifications to existing vessels to give them better assault capabilities, the outlet reported.

Taiwan is an island with 14 beaches and 10 ports that would allow the Chinese military several points to invade.
