“To maintain regional stability”: the United States sent two AUGs to the South China Sea at once

The Pentagon sent two aircraft carrier groups to the South China Sea, led by aircraft carriers Ronald Reagan and Nimitz. According to The Wall Street Journal, US Navy Commander Rear Admiral George Wyckoff of the statement about the need for regional stability and security in the region, and also expressed “disapproval” of China’s military build-up.


The goal is to send an unequivocal signal to our partners and allies that we are committed to maintaining regional security and stability.

- leads the publication of the word rear admiral.

In addition, the US Department of Defense issued an official statement that also expressed “concern” with the PLA Navy’s ongoing exercises in the disputed Xisha (Paracel Islands) islands in the South China Sea. Beijing previously announced maneuvers in the area from July 1 to 5. American aircraft carriers sent to the South China Sea had previously conducted joint maneuvers in the Philippine Sea.

Conducting military exercises on the disputed territory in the South China Sea is counterproductive for efforts to ease tensions and maintain stability. The actions of China will further destabilize the situation in the South China Sea. We urge all parties to exercise restraint and avoid military action that could exacerbate differences in the South China Sea

- said in a statement.

Recall that the islands of Xisha (Paracel) claim China and Vietnam.

          In fact, yes ... but the third aircraft carrier Nimitz was sent to replace
          USS Nimitz should replace the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier located in the waters of the Sea of ​​Japan since April. "USS Nimitz is on its way to the western Pacific, but it is reported that it will replace USS Carl Vinson, so there will be two rather than three aircraft carriers in the North Korea area,"

          The fact is that somehow it becomes too crowded in the "South China" sea, which, even by its name "Chinese", does not provide for mattress interest. It would not be bad if the Chinese comrades sent all these American vessels to the bottom, so that the next time, before climbing to "maintain regional stability," the mattresses were clearly aware of where the US is regionally and where China is.

    Do stripes have such problems with mail that they require as many as two AUGs to send a signal? They would have sent it by fax, it would have come faster and cheaper.

      They can send, but who will give them ... intolerant and politically incorrect on white paper in black letters, it’s necessary to drive coronovirus carriers laughing
      The US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan usually sets sail from April to October, entering ports in East Asia and conducting exercises with allies. This year, according to the New York Times, the voyage was postponed due to the fact that 16 sailors from the Ronald Reagan were infected with the coronavirus COVID-19.

      The mail has nothing to do with it, the United States uses its method of the early 20th century to this day. Gunboat diplomacy was used by the United States in China to suppress the Boxing Rebellion at the beginning of the XNUMXth century, during which control over the Chinese rivers was carried out by American and British gunboats. Time has passed, and in the USA everyone thinks that the Chinese will fight in junks, and they can be torn "like Tuzik a heating pad", but rather the Chinese will unwind the heating pad.

          You do not know the history of your Ukraine, but the history of Russia even more so. Russia has never participated in an intervention anywhere. When a boxing uprising erupted in China, on June 9, 1899, the Hunhuz attacked the guard post at Anda Station and completely destroyed it. The guards were killed, the building burned down, the railway track destroyed. As a response, the command of the Amur District ordered the guards not only to repel attacks, but also to retaliate. Half the road was destroyed, hundreds of Russian people died. I was born on the CER and my grandfathers built it. You Ukrainians prove nonsense, you are one of those who with foam at the mouth proves his own, but does not listen to anyone.

        It will not work to throw corpses, the US Navy is stronger than its head, both technically and in terms of training (tactics). Here, China has only one option - to apply yao. There is no chance in open battle, even if China has superiority in quantity. The USA has a good history of successful use of Augs with Japan, for example. But China has none of this + the wing is worse than the United States, there’s nothing to argue about. From all this, I personally think that even these 2 AUGAs will be fatal for the Chinese fleet

      In this case, it’s just force projection mission... Operations in the Pacific by such forces in themselves are rare for the American Navy, they take place about once every four years. The last time was in 2018. Last year, "Ronald Reagan" in the vicinity of these islands was surrounded by Chinese ships, because she was sailing alone ... and without an ensemble, apparently so that there would be no such thing and two full-fledged AUGs were sent just out of quarantine.

    In a tense period of mutual relations, this is a provocation. It will not work out to frighten the PRC, and the allies are bound by trade and economic ties with the PRC and will think a hundred times whether it is worth undermining their economy by supporting the North American United States, especially since many have suffered from them.
