Incident near the Sisha Islands: US Navy destroyer with the Tomahawk KR ended up in the half ring of warships of the Chinese Navy


Representative of the Southern Military Command of China, Colonel Li Huaming, during a briefing, reported on an incident with an American warship in the Xisha Islands (Paracel Islands). A Chinese officer told media representatives that an American Arly Burke class destroyer “illegally invaded the territorial waters of China” in the Yongle archipelago (south of Hainan Island).


We are talking about the destroyer "Mustin" (USS Mustin - DDG-89) of the US Navy, carrying on its board a tactical strike weapon in the form of cruise missiles (CR) "Tomahawk."

Li Huamin:

In connection with the provocative entry into the waters of the Sisha Islands by an American missile destroyer, Chinese warships and weapons aviation were sent to the area to expel the intruder ship.

A few hours later, the warship Mustin left the waters of the Yunle archipelago when it ended up in the semicircle of the ships of the PLA Navy. At the same time, they urgently had to return to the deck aircraft (helicopter), previously raised "to monitor the situation."



Colonel Lee called the situation an attempt to undermine China's sovereignty and damage regional stability. According to the PLA colonel, "this is a brazen act of navigational hegemony."

What does the United States Navy say about this?


As it turns out, the United States does not see the situation as a violation of China’s maritime borders.
Rachel Mole, spokesman for the US Pacific military command, notes that "the US Navy destroyer did not violate international law."

Like:

The US Navy warship defended navigational rights and freedoms in the waters of the Paracel Islands in full compliance with international law.

Rachel Mol adds that "China itself violates the rules of navigation in the area of ​​the disputed archipelago." From the statement:

China interferes with normal shipping in this area. And that is unacceptable.

The US Pacific Command made it clear that they were outraged by the numerical navy superiority of China in the area of ​​the Sisha Islands, which allowed us to carry out the American destroyer, armed with the Tomahawks.

      That's what a lot of warships mean. No matter how much the Chinese frigates and destroyers cry over the fact that they are supposedly weakly armed, inferior, they are doing their own thing. No super-sophisticated American ship will stand up to the crowd.
      Unfortunately, this does not apply to us.

    Here is the first silk on the nose of the "naval hegemony" of the Americans. China builds warships in such a way that some take their breath away. Now, situations where others will face the numerical superiority of the Navy of the PRC will become commonplace.

      Firstly :

      - The USSR, in most cases, itself, for several reasons, withdrew its bases from the "overseas territories."

      Secondly :

      - Cases of "squeezing" the USSR from such territories are unknown to me ...

            He will not answer, only make a noise. But in principle, there was such a thing of June 01, 1990. "The line of betrayal" by Shevardnadze. So her name is fishermen, border guards and ordinary Far Easterners. From Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to this imaginary line in the Bering and Chukchi seas - three days go. When in the summer of 1990 official information appeared in the Soviet press about the treaty on the delimitation of water between the United States and the USSR, few people paid attention to its bias towards US interests. The then Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR, Eduard Shevardnadze, signed such a generous treaty with the US Secretary of State James Baker that about 50 thousand sq. M. Were withdrawn from the economic zone of the USSR in favor of the USA. kilometers of the Pacific.

    The fact that China captures the disputed islands and waters of Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Russia (and the patriots on the site) are silent - friendship covers friendship. After all, grabbing a piece of disputed territory is just a spit for both countries. Even a great nation cannot force itself and google who owns the island - it believes everything that will be stewed. It is clear that managing such a people is easy ....

    article of course raises the Chinese, only in other sources is not quite so.
    The American entered the archipelago, there were two ships of the Chinese Navy — the corvette pr056 and frigate054, so it’s not entirely clear what kind of half-ring? or were there still boats or boats?
    An American came out a few hours later, it didn’t seem like a hurry ..
    Nothing like that similar case when our bulk Americans were crowded out near Crimea.
    And crowded out - the same.

    "Numerical superiority" is understandable. It is intelligible.

    It was necessary for China not to supplant the American - but to accept amendments to the Constitution! That he is wrong. You can even in the American! Here's how ...
    And to surround them with their ships when there are more, and then there will be even more - this is dishonest! So it is, of course, so anyone can ...

    It is necessary to put the Su-24 to the Chinese, the Americans are afraid of their flight past their Arleys. And there you can build a business on the supply of diapers.

    The United States can’t accept the simple fact that the time of its “hegemony” is over. Moreover, during the reign of the Negro, with his “red” lines. Destroyers with axes and floating airfields scare very few people and are perceived more as an inconvenience than a real threat. who have something to answer. And there are more and more of them.

      what ?! three fr. 11356 R / M (two of which, for the most part of their time, at Tartus?!). This is only in the opinion of Andrei Vajra (in his videos on YouTube) that the Black Sea Fleet is developing rapidly and gaining power ... But in reality, what ?!

    Firstly, the Paracel Islands do not belong to China. Secondly, the destroyer could, using the local superiority of forces, and would sink, and most likely at the same time they would row for themselves the dubious pleasure of the destroyer themselves so that my mother does not grieve. And what would they do with the global superiority of the US Navy (this is not counting NATO, Australia, Japan, and the South Caucasus, which would fit exactly), except for the bulge at the bottom? The Chinese are not so bad as to not understand, well, they kept their distance in a half-ring. And the destroyer did what he planned, and as planned, went about his business. You can minus, this will not change the essence of what happened.
