In Sohu: When the US has problems, they go away and abandon their allies

22

The Chinese media published material that examines the situation in the US naval forces. The author in the military-thematic section of the Sohu portal writes that now the situation in the US Navy is "that they have no time for operations in distant waters."


This publication came out against the background of the words of General Mark Millie, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that "no one should have any doubts about the combat readiness of the American army." General Millie warned "US opponents against trying to verify this alert during the crisis." Approximately in the same vein, the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper, spoke out. According to him, "the US Army is ready to conduct any operation to protect the American people."

But the Chinese author focuses on the absence of American aircraft carriers near the island of Taiwan, about which "the defense of which is against the threat from Beijing" was constantly reprimanded in the USA.

The author at Sohu makes it clear that Taiwan should not have confronted “mainland China” in the first place, alluding to the fact that the United States, when they have problems, simply go further away, effectively abandoning its allies.

From an article in the Chinese edition:

Well, how many Americans today are ready to die to protect the island (Taiwan, approx. “VO”) from the “mainland”? Are the United States going to sacrifice themselves for Taipei?

The material adds that today, in fact, no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier can threaten China:

They simply are not in the strait.

It is a strait between mainland China and the island of Taiwan.

Against this background, statements appeared on Western resources about allegedly entering the strait of the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning. The PRC called these publications untrue.

      Just the level of VO as a competent media has become at the same level as this yellow Chinese media.
      But people hawala, the number of visits to the resource is growing. Everything is trivially built on a cheap hype.

        And what should be the level? We are spreading the info, and here our right to agree or not .. USA -NATO is a potential enemy for Russia and the Chinese media describe everything quite well, unlike Europe, vassals of all consonants .. hi

        I would argue, sometimes it seems that I'm on an enemy resource, took up a circular defense .. Such a shot goes across Russia, have time to dodge and make excuses ..

          At year 12, there was a level. At that point, VO rose, since sensible specialists really shared their opinions and knowledge here, of which you can now count on the fingers.

          The Chinese give out only their own version, which is beneficial to them. There is no impartiality, as well as in the content of other media in other countries.

            Well, the Chinese write nevertheless more adequately than the Western media and others. Ever blaming Russia for everything and demanding a change of power .. I am personally tired of them .. hi

        Plus, Nexus. Unfortunately you are right. I used to go to VO often. And now there is no desire. A lot of censorship, a lot of repetition, a lot of transfusion from empty to empty. Admins generally laugh. They make strikes for expressing their opinion that is different from the opinion of the majority. Well, we roll further and deeper ...

      И почти все с "умной" критикой, ярых противников и потенциальных партнёров. Но цензура видать работает, так как свои возможности освещают довольно скромно.

    Столько же сколько за Прибалтику, Польшу, Украину - т.е. ни одного. Понимая это китайцы задали исключительно риторический вопрос и в то же время напомнили американским "союзникам" реальную суть вещей.

      -According to him (Esper), "the US army is ready to conduct any operation to protect the American people."
      Where is it said about other nations?

      And it has always been so, is and will be. Sohu did not make any discovery.

      I remembered.
      My grandfather lived two domestic dogs - a large, strong, evil, but dull Gypsy and a small, harmful, but smart and cunning Jack. Neither sleep nor eat without each other - there were friends.
      Так вот Валет "гегемоном" на улицу вылезет, все соседние дворы оббежит, на всех соседских кобелей навыпендривается, обгавкает их, и во все лопатки к своим воротам, к Цыгану - "Обижают ни за что!!!". А Цыган лезет один с тремя-четырьмя драться - друга защищать. Цыган бьётся, их разбросает, ну, и сам, конечно, отловит - пока дед их дрыном не разгонит. А Валет всё это время бегает кругами вокруг дерущейся кучи и на всю улицу гавкает - создаёт "информационный фон". Сам Валет даже уха рваного за всю жизнь не получил. Зато когда дед Цыгану раны какой-то мазью замажет, пожалеет, миску с едой принесёт - Цыган лежит, ему не до жратвы, ободранный весь, а Валет с видом победителя идёт "воевать" с миской.
      So they lie nearby, they cannot move - one is all torn, the second with a round belly.

      American style (Jack), in my opinion, one to one ....

    As long as there is the problem of Taiwan, China has its hands tied up, the military budget, the structure of the armed forces, locations, strategic plans are all centered around Taiwan. Not about any, not that global expansion, but even some kind of projection of force somewhere in Africa is out of the question until this problem is resolved

    Drag and drop, they abandon the Allies much earlier - when the ALLIES have problems. Greece during the Cyprus conflict or the Kurds - easily confirmed

    You might think that when someone has problems, he immediately rushes to help the allies ...

    Immediately offhand: Algeria - a problem - France left, leaving the pro-French party.
    The Soviet Union left Afghanistan, a little later the government flooded the Dushmans ....

    And so on ...
