German Defense Minister: We will send a warship to the Indian Ocean to contain China

66

German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who until recently was predicted to be Chancellor - to the soon vacant seat of Angela Merkel, made a statement about the military presence of Germany in regions remote from the country.


According to Kramp-Karrenbauer, the German military presence in the Indo-Pacific (Asia-Pacific) region "should ensure stability and security." This statement was made by the head of the German military department against the background of reports about the impending dispatch of one of the warships of the FRG Navy to patrol the Indian Ocean.

Australian journalists from the Sydney Morning Herald asked Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer what goals Germany is pursuing by equipping its warship to sail thousands of nautical miles from German borders?

The German Defense Minister, in fact, word for word repeated the theses that are usually used by representatives of the Pentagon and the US State Department:

We are concerned about the growing influence of China in the Indo-Pacific region. We will send our battleship to patrol the Indian Ocean to protect the world order and also to contain China.

The German Navy ship will go to "contain China" in the Indian Ocean in 2021. These messages of the German Minister of Defense are actively circulated in the Indian press today.

There is no information yet about which ship of its naval forces Berlin will send to the Asian region. Experts suggest that this could be one of the Saxony-class frigates - for example, the frigate Hessen, which was included in fleet in 2003. Among the weapons of this type of frigates are the American Harpoon anti-ship missiles and MU-90 torpedoes.

In China, the statements made by Crump-Karrenbauer in an interview with the Australian press have not yet been reacted.

    The strange ministers of defense of Germany.
    - for der Leynen - genecologist.
    - Kramp-Karrenbauer - dreamed of becoming a midwife, but moved to
    politics.
    Her political credo - "German-American friendship was, is, and will be a priority in German politics." She is predicted to replace Merkel. The Americans decided to involve Germany in the presence in the zone of influence of China. It doesn't matter what one ship, the main thing is that it is a representative of the European leader who supports the United States against China.
    The Americans have one tactic - to create coalitions in order to bypass the UN Security Council bans.

      yes, a gesture of loyalty rather. The Germans are upset.
      But this gesture, I think, caused jealousy among applicants for the role of "beloved wife" in the American harem.
      Poland: "why not us ???"
      Baltic states: "and sprat is caught there? Then we are in business. We will send two trawlers"

      And with this they want to contain China:

      Frigates are presented in three classes:

      "Bremen" - these ships were created to combat enemy submarines, in view of the restructuring of the fleet, they are being prepared for disabling. At the moment there are 2 ships left. On board are anti-ship cruise missiles "Harpoon", missile class - "ship-to-air" Sea Sparrow, SAM Mk-49 RAM.

      Brandenburg - 4 ships that replaced the 101 / 101A class destroyers, including the Exocet anti-missile system, Sea Sparrow air-to-air missiles and Mk-49 RAM. Also on board are 2 Westland Lynx multipurpose helicopters.

      Saxony is the latest frigate development, with 3 of the 4 planned ships in service. Has the following weapons:
      Harpoon cruise missiles;
      VPU Mk 41 Mod;
      Rockets Sea Sparrow;
      Aviation: Westland Lynx and NH90 helicopters.

    Again? For the third time Germany was late for the division of the world? It took the people of Germany 75 years to realize this? Where is the concern of our profile ministries? And what will happen next?
    The Germans have already started a world war twice.
    Why, one wonders, did the Americans and Soviet leaders leave the Germans the opportunity to recreate the army and navy after 1945? It was a mistake. A mistake that will come back to haunt all peoples and states in the near future!
