United States deployed strategic bomber B-52H to Guam

32

The United States continues to concentrate forces and assets in the region of the South China Sea, where in the area of ​​the disputed islands of Xisha (Paracel Selsk), the PLA Navy conducts large-scale exercises. Following the deployment of two aircraft carrier groups to the area, the United States deployed the B-52N strategic bomber to Guam.


As follows from the monitoring data of Western aviation resources, the American strategist flew from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. According to available information, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers Nimitz and Ronald Reagan, together with escort ships and strategist, will work out the ability of the forces to resist possible enemy attacks.

As previously reported, the PLA Naval Forces announced the holding of large-scale exercises from July 1 to 5 in the Sisha Islands (Paracel Islands). In response, the United States sent two aircraft carrier strike groups to the South China Sea, led by the nuclear-powered carriers Nimitz and Ronald Reagan. The main objective of the AUG in the United States called the opportunity to convey to China an unambiguous message that they do not approve of the buildup of Beijing's military power in the region.

The challenge is to send an unequivocal signal to our partners and allies that we are committed to maintaining regional security and stability.
said Rear Admiral George Wyckoff, commander of the group.

    Today, the PLA is completing its major exercises in that area, and as I understand it, now we will see the American answer there ...

      Paracel Islands are an internal problem of Vietnam and China, but not the USA!
      And there is nothing for them to poke their “striped” long nose into foreign regions!
      And then they brought in a manner, push the debaters and settle themselves (Europe, Japan - World War 2, etc.)

    US Pontollers! China does not intimidate them in the current situation ..
    It will be expected that China-Russia-Iran will arrange large-scale exercises near their shores ..
    The base in Venezuela is being built slowly ..

    US continues to concentrate forces in the South China Sea
    Well, hegemon can’t sit quietly even in a difficult situation inside his country. Strongly provokes China, as Obviously, Russia alone is not enough for him, but the “allies” simply need to show that everything is not only under control, but is ready at any moment to join the active movement. Which year they go around the edge of the outbreak of a major military conflict in time in various regions: from the Near and Middle East to Europe and South-East Asia.

    I read the other day the ZVO of the 70s, there was a translated article. The main message is that we urgently need to change the B-52 to a new bomber as soon as possible. 50 years have passed. Today they say the same thing ... laughing

      Justify why China now takes control of Taiwan. So if the Chinese in Taiwan hold a referendum on joining China then yes. Taiwan started its development in the 80s. In the 80s, Hollywood advertised them in every film about modern America: Why it won’t start (tank , Shastl, F 16, etc., etc.)? All spare parts are made in Taiwan! What do you want. Taiwan is a self-sufficient state and once again the Chinese tiger does not pull its mustache

    The PRC also does not approve of shirking in the South China Sea of ​​the AUG of the USA, so it zealously rivets its aircraft carriers. Soon, the "Nimitians" and "Fords" will face their Chinese counterparts. So let's see ...

    I wonder why it fit here so briskly for China?
    Have you never heard that the Chinese people firmly believe that Hayshenwei (the Chinese name of Vladivostok) is Chinese, that both Khabarovsk and Blagoveshchensk are the patrimony of the Chinese, and the Russians treacherously took their Northern territories, but will soon return them?
    Already at the beginning of 2019, China had from 465 warships, compared with 289 units in the USA and 270 in Russia (of which only half is actively used).
    Over the past 10 years, Chinese shipyards have built more than 100 warships, which is about one and a half times more than Russian enterprises.
    Moreover, almost the entire Chinese Navy is concentrated in the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the Asian mainland.
    The Chinese economy is more than 90 percent tied to America, the European Union and their allies in Asia, the West is the main source of technology and quality investment for the Chinese economy. Finally, millions of offspring of the Chinese elite live, study and work in the US and Europe, so Beijing will never send missiles there.

    Children of the Russian elite study in the West, real estate and accounts with many are also there, those in power rest again, mainly in western resorts, and residence permits for many “patriots” are not open in China or Iran.


    Not so long ago, the very sohu.com, to which they so much like to refer to VO, published a very provocative opus "Sakhalin Island - the former Kuedao Island of our country." It states that:
    Sakhalin once belonged to China and that "the Russians captured this land and killed people," and this is what the Chinese "patriots" cause not just regret, but "deep hatred." The article also tells about the Japanese and the natives living on the island, but after the “capture” of Sakhalin in Russia by Russia, the Japanese were deported to Japan, and the indigenous people were “ruthlessly oppressed and almost completely destroyed”. Those who survived were “discriminated against on ethnic grounds.”


    There are plenty of similar publications on the Chinese Internet. For example, on baidu.com (Chinese Google), the South Kuril Islands are designated as "Territory occupied by Russia."
    Chinese media, covering the Russian-Japanese territorial dispute, constantly call the South Kuril Islands "northern islands." Obviously, with the expectation that in the event of hypothetical Russian territorial concessions to Japan, China would be ready to declare its claims to Sakhalin and other "territories torn away by Russia under unequal treaties." Note that the area of ​​“torn away territories” in Chinese school textbooks is estimated at one and a half million square meters. Km!

      China needs to get in touch with Russia. We have had rubber bongs in our warehouses since Soviet times. Horror. China will not look north from the South East until now. They don’t have to fight. Chinese comrades are very disciplined, the CCP said to buy everything they can be bought all over the world. Even climbed the promised land.

    Well, the United States sent three aircraft carriers to the South China Sea at age 16, but in the end they slipped away. The militarization of the South China Sea will not stop until it destroys a military base in the South China Sea.

    Balls, balls. In my opinion, the theme of the military confrontation between China and Roosia, the theme from Ukraine. They prayed for oil and gas for the opposition to Trump. Well, nothing got together. Russia only grows stronger. If someday the Chinese and I begin to look at each other's sights, then this will only pay the Russian Ruble for the dust in parts of Ukraine. And it’s certainly not Crimea that he will always be Russian.

    That's right. They then stamped a hundred V-1B in addition to several hundred of their B-52s, gradually writing off old modifications and leaving only modifications G and H. Then they wrote off the modification G

    Soon - in how many decades? So far, Chinese aircraft carriers are clones of our Kuznetsov. When the Chinese reach the construction of analogs of at least Nimitz, even in a single version, then we’ll talk. And when they catch up with the USA in terms of the number of AUGs - “I think neither me nor you will have to live in this wonderful time” laughing

    How else? You are a VO old-timer, Alexander. You know that it is enough to intersect the interests of the United States or its allies with anyone, as right away everyone immediately comes to the defense of the orphans and the wretched (offended). Fire in Iran at the facilities of the UC - you need to sell 500 SU-30 / SU-35 to Iran, because this is probably the machinations of the United States or its allies. The Saud butts with the Hussites - "you need to sell the RK" Point "to the Hussites." So nothing new ... laughing
