US warships not allowed into Hong Kong

Chinese authorities denied two US warships a visit to the port of Hong Kong amid ongoing protests against the government in Beijing.



USS Lake Erie


According to the representative of the Pacific fleet US Nate Christensen, Beijing rejected requests to visit Hong Kong with the USS Green Bay (LPD-20) landing craft and the Ticonderoga class missile cruiser USS Lake Erie (CG-70).

Far from the Chinese coast



The U.S. Navy has extensive experience in successfully calling at the ports of Hong Kong, and we expect them to continue. We are sending you to the Chinese government for more information on why they rejected the request.

- said the specified military.

Green Bay is part of Amphibious Ready (ARG). Currently, there are about 700 Marines from the 31 Expeditionary Unit based in Okinawa, Japan, on board.
The Chinese authorities traditionally refuse to visit their ports to American ships in an aggravation of relations.

In 2007, two Avenger-class American anti-mine ships were forced to retreat without replenishing water and fuel in the face of an impending storm, after a deal with Taiwan and the Dalai Lama being awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. In 2014, after two U.S. Air Force B-52 bombers ignored PRC requirements in the air defense identification zone over the East China Sea, the USS Halsey (DDG-97) was denied access to Hong Kong.

In 2016, the USS aircraft carrier John C. Stennis (CVN-74) also lost this opportunity in response to a US demonstration of power in the South China Sea. In October 2018, the USS Wasp (LHD-1) was not missed due to a trade conflict between the two countries and the persecution of Beijing over transactions with Russia in the military-technical cooperation.

It's all about protests



According to the West, Beijing’s latest decision was triggered by a raging protest movement that lasts from early June. According to Western media reports, in the past two days, demonstrators have occupied Hong Kong airport. Foreign Ministry officials accused the US government in general and the CIA in particular of encouraging unrest.

Many blame me and the United States for the problems happening in Hong Kong. I can not imagine why?

- said in this regard, the head of the White House, Donald Trump.

Against the backdrop of the protests, China deployed the People’s Armed Police in the city of Shenzhen, located 30 km from Xiangang. Numerous armored personnel carriers, trucks, and other equipment were spotted on the freeways on the weekend. According to official authorities, the relocation is associated with exercises.

    They didn’t let them in, and they did it right.
    Give them water, and then they will spit in the well.
    Not the first time!

        Amid riots in Hong Kong it is not yet known exactly what the American warships with as many marines as up to 700 people needed!
        And the American Ticonderoga class missile cruiser USS Lake Erie (CG-70) in this case in Hong Kong is also at the same time - there is nothing to do for the company.

        I kept wondering why Venezuela has “quieted down”, and it’s what’s happening!

        Fig, they even capture airports ?!

          Well, how to "capture". Crowded into the airport, sat down on the floor and blocked the movement of passengers. And since their crowd and they are supported by local "people with good faces", the airport was forced to stop working.
          It’s just they don’t tell you in the newspapers that so far practically no one is counteracting them. There, even the police have not yet been ordered. The thing is really dead end and everyone from all sides is just waiting for it to subside on its own.

      I totally agree. Why not "add a little gas to this fire ..."
      And the proposed video is not entirely clear, which shows the transfer of additional Chinese troops to Hong Kong?

    And rightly so, let them carry out their "support and demonstration" somewhere in the Norfolk region, and not off the coast of China ..

    They brought on board some kind of "provocation" such as "rescued protesters" or "fired ships", or left trunks in general ... And the dumber the assumption of the "reason" for the call, the more likely it is closer to the truth, down to saboteurs of Asian appearance with "Maidan" sniper task. Why didn’t they go to Okinawa? She is there. And there is plenty of water there. And quiet compared to Hong Kong. So, the Nippons will shout at the gate a little and that’s it.

    Trump tried to attack the DPRK with three aircraft carriers, but zilch. Here, as last time, the two troughs will slowly be removed, realizing that no one is afraid of them.

    Wow, I tried to show surprise. And why amid the riots, American ships needed to go to Hong Kong? Show once again that they are "to each barrel a stopper" and they have everything "under control"? Correctly, China has banned, and also would have pulled a couple of its ships.

      wassat Thanks for the link. I probably can not resist and copy part:
      . The protest, after a short time, bothered the protesters themselves. From him there are only problems, but it is already difficult to write out of the topic, because in front of the sidekicks comes out "ahhh, you leaked, since tomorrow you will not go with us." This atmosphere is clearly visible in protest chat rooms. The paid asset is small, the rest are "stupid" for the crowd, amusing themselves with the thesis "and if we are free, then for the idea and on our own."

      Chew, uraki, if you are taken to the indicated place by the indicated time with posters and theses written by you but not paid dough, this does not mean that you are independent and decisive. You are just free stupid. If you are not specifically paid, this does not mean that the protest is free; it means only that you perform actions beneficial to other people for free. It is not you who invents where to go - they inform you. It’s not you who invents how much - they write to you. It is not you who come up with theses and slogans - they are sent to you. It’s not you starting to chant - it’s a few people with walkie-talkies who are starting, but you picking up.

      wassat there instead of "stupid" another word. Substitute just in case

      China will not arrange anything there. Hong Kong does not have any real meaning for him. As far as I know, the police have already been given a command and it cleared the airport and generally dispersed the main centers. There are still separate small groups that press in the same airport in the corners with posters.
      In fact, if the same inadequacies appeared in Russia, they would not be waiting for them either. These ushlopki kept the Chinese journalist in captivity for more than a day, beat him. I suppose ours wouldn’t, like the Chinese almond, and a pair of especially gifted would go to Sklif.
