Pentagon Chief Candidate: The U.S. Navy has the ability to sink China's fleet in 72 hours in the South China Sea

105

China is actively discussing the most likely candidate for the post of the new US Secretary of Defense in the event of the final proclamation of Joseph Biden as the 46th president. This week, official Beijing decided to congratulate Biden on his election.


Recall that the main candidate for the post of head of the Pentagon in the "Biden administration" is 59-year-old Michelle Flournoy, who was under Obama's deputy defense secretary for political affairs.

Chinese media drew attention to Flurna in connection with a number of anti-Chinese statements she made earlier. For example, Ms. Flurnoy has repeatedly expressed the need to counter the growth of the PRC, since "China is among the greatest threats to the United States."

And in the Chinese edition of SCMP, columnist Liu Zheng recalled that quite recently Michelle Flournoy stated that "China will have to think three times before trying to confront the US Navy in the South China Sea." Flurnoy added that "in the South China Sea, the US Navy has the ability to sink China's fleet in 72 hours."

The Chinese press notes that now Ms. Flurnoy can even more "lean" on militaristic rhetoric in order to be approved as head of the Pentagon.

The relatively liberal SCMP commented on the statement of the US Secretary of Defense candidate:

Michelle Flournoy's words (about the "sinking fleet China ") are far from being implemented.

          The Chinese have not yet appointed a woman with strange fantasies as defense minister, so most likely we will not hear any comments.

          China is simply nationalizing American factories on its territory hi Along the way, it nationalizes the factories of those who begin to support the Americans in their aggression. What will happen to the Americans and their singers, who will lose their production? Will they tie up a comfortable life, abandoning MADE IN CHINA goods?

                  Sometimes at Chinese factories in the PRC they produce equally high-quality equipment. For example, I prefer purely Chinese frequency converters produced at Siemens, Schneider, Danfoss. Yuhai's servos seemed to be pretty high quality too. It should be noted that the products of high-quality Chinese brands Hinye and Tai'an are currently not represented on the Russian market. The year before last, it was funny to see a representative of the Kovrov Electromechanical Plant try to convince a representative of Yuhai that a servo with a higher torque at low speeds should be of lower quality than a servo that cannot provide high torque at low speeds

      The world has already - rolled off the coils. Today, there are 13 women defense ministers in the world. And the CIA director is already a woman, who previously personally tortured prisoners in prisons controlled by her (this was her fiefdom). Democratic liberalism,
      gave birth to finitism, turning women into "dracul". They don't need men, they don't need a family, they don't want to have children. They are not subject to public criticism. And this is no longer matriarchy, but something more ugly and sophisticated. Soon we will remember Psaki as the smartest woman on Earth. crying hi

      If only the fleet (ships) is involved, then it will already be a big war! And the big war between the great powers is the third world war ... Therefore, no one will sink the fleet, unless they seriously intend to send everyone to the forefathers. This is the first thing.
      Second, the The mistake of the participants in the discussion lies in the fact that they regard the fleets of the powers in isolation from the entire system of combat support in the theater of operations.
      Ams, before sinking the Chinese fleet, will certainly tear down all the airfields, radar stations and the force control system ... The submarine curtains will be deployed in narrow areas on the routes of enemy forces. They will organize an air blockade, strike at the identified launchers of the MRBM / ICBM, etc. And this, as it is not difficult to notice, is already a completely different scale ... This is a full-scale war of the nuclear powers. I'm afraid we won't stand aside either. It just won't work. For several reasons.

        the talking head warned

        It's not really a talking head.
        This is one of the ideologues of their military doctrines.
        She has more than 10 serious works on doctrine.

          Alex, hi
          She is currently NOBODY in the US presidential administration.
          You can be a "theoretician" as much as you like, but this does not mean at all that the doctrinal statements you have expressed will be embodied in the administration's policy.
          That is why I called her a "talking head" (a person who brings someone's views to the public).
          AHA.

            There is no one in the administration yet, but in the democratic shoble that came to power, it has a lot of weight and opportunities. Specifically, she was one of the ideologues of the operation against Libya. This is a rather weighty figure.

        You do not take into account that the Chinese (following the example of the USSR) dug and built another country underground! With factories, storage facilities, sealed shelters and other delights ...
        Therefore, not everything is as simple as the flight time of the rockets. However, here you are also mistaken. Nuts are already loaded by Tridents from W76-2 BB. And this probably says something to the initiated ...

    a nation like China that has 5000 years of existence and experience (the art of war) from Zun tsu will remind that witch of history when they bases in Korea Guam Japan will be blasted to dust and the US will not have any balls to try anything because Americans are cowards they can only win after they destroyed a country with embargoes sanctions and terrorize civilians i rather say the Chinese will BLINK and US FLEET will sink Amen to that

      (translation: "I find this very pathetic and further proof that Americans have lost touch with reality"
      Erwin, unfortunately you are mistaken about the Yankees ... The Ams are very practical, cynical and pragmatic.
      1. Yes, the States can (objectively) destroy the PLA fleet. But this does not mean that they are going to do it. Most likely they will set their allies against the PRC: the ROK, Japan, the Philippines ...
      2. Are you cowards? Why do you think so? In World War II, they fought the Japanese with dignity and won, although they missed a terrible blow to Pearl Harbor ...
      3. On account of the fact that the US fleet will sink. Anything can be. But the calculation of the combat potentials of the forces of the parties speaks in favor of the US fleet, with all due respect to the efforts of the PRC to strengthen the power of its fleet. The underwater component and aviation of the Yankees are many times stronger. They will decide the outcome of the war at sea.
      And one more request: if you can, write in Russian. That's clearer.

Teddy, being under Obama as the Undersecretary of Defense for Political Affairs., the Chinese kicked in the ass when they captured the SCM of Spratly Islands and gave the ass to all contenders for these islands, including the state colonies in this region ... the most curiosity arose with the Philippines, that is the states, in theory, should have influenced this issue ... but .... the prezik Filipin, making sure that no measures were being taken in plain text, the states sent to all four sides. in short, the shame on the political sphere is full of .... and guess at once. who in this embarrassment was the main person !!! .... and you mean missile defense. about 72 hours ..... there are a couple more stories with this chicken .. but Spratly it was the apogee of her stupidity

    Then China will play hide and seek, the main group of ships will be taken to the "strategic space."
    Has China built a naval base in Djibouti? It seems that the Chinese also have support points for the Chinese Navy in Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

In the SKM from the Spratly archipelago, everything and everyone is shot ... let me remind you that the Xiaoping dug in there tightly ... and the base is a base .. .there are forces and means dozens of times more than a couple of three AUG ... well, it is worth recalling ... an attack on a group of warships is a declaration of war ... which means ... the destruction of the enemy's orbital group and the delivery of nuclear strikes .. ... after such exceptional things will go down in history like the Roman empire ... look at what Italy has become now ... so ... it's hot on the side ... but history is undoubtedly great
