"To ensure freedom of navigation": US aircraft carrier sent to South China Sea

Following the demand for an end to any pressure on the Taiwan administration directed by the US State Department against Beijing, the command of the US Navy sent an aircraft carrier group to the South China Sea.


According to the command of the 7th fleet The US Navy has moved into the South China Sea area with an aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier. It is emphasized that the AUG "is carrying out a planned deployment as part of the US 7th Fleet to ensure freedom of navigation."

The aircraft carrier, along with escort ships, crossed the Luzon Bay between the Philippines and Taiwan last Saturday, on the same day, the Taipei authorities announced Chinese planes allegedly invading the island's airspace. It is noted that the American ships were in the affected area of ​​the Chinese YJ-12 supersonic anti-ship anti-ship cruise missiles, which could be on the aircraft of the PRC Air Force.

The appearance of Chinese aircraft in Taiwan's airspace has been criticized by the US State Department. As previously reported by "VO", the spokesman for the US State Department Ned Price called these actions another "attempt to intimidate the neighbors" and said that they cause concern for the American authorities. Washington also warned Beijing about the consequences of the "invasion of Taiwan's air defense zone."

How long the American aircraft carrier will spend in the South China Sea is not known. Note that under Donald Trump, the United States has repeatedly sent its AUG to the Chinese coast, ostensibly to ensure free shipping. It is not yet clear what the Biden administration's relations with China will be like in the future, but it is unlikely that anything will radically change in American politics.

      Already in the afternoon, China flew 6 strategic H-6K bombers and 15 fighters, which demonstrated to the US aircraft carrier strike group that they were ready to use weapons, as a result of which the AUG was forced to interrupt its movement.

            We don't want to, but mattresses do everything to make it happen. There is such a song - Do the Russians want war? Definitely not! But it so happened historically that we are not left with a choice, and therefore those who want war with the Russians always get what they deserve - defeat. In this case, it will be the same and the GDP has unambiguously made it clear to the overseas "entertainers" one simple truth - "If there is no Russia in this world, then why does Russia need this world?"

              You personally may not want to. Americans do nothing of the kind, no matter what the Russian Federation does, methods, mentality and range of possibilities differ, but nothing more. An appeal to a well-known song, in view of the huge number of proposals to "zhahnut Topol", and not only in America, in the Russian Internet in general, and in particular in the VO, looks like hypocrisy. Scientists have proven that "the expression history repeats itself" is fundamentally wrong, it does not repeat itself, it is homeomorphic to similar events of the past. In Afghanistan, the USSR and the RSFSR were defeated, losing 66 thousand of their soldiers and killing a million locals. Just do not start to prove to me the opposite and blame my foreignness, I gave my debt in 2 years to the USSR from call to call and not somewhere, but at night radio patrols on the Kiev-Chernigov highway in 86, measuring on tires with a dosimeter 20 roentgens, and during breaks I kept in touch with a 30-km zone, cable, knee-deep in ditches in cold mud. Therefore, I honestly deserve the right to my opinion.
              So in history there have not yet been wars when any industrial zone or city can be covered with a blow arriving at a hypersonic speed and neither the distance nor the number of called bayonets is no longer a guarantee of anything, from the word at all and no one else is interested in the seizure of territory, as such. VVP is not a very stupid person and quite professional, but the approval of an experienced politician is one thing, and another is a practical reality, which is difficult to hide in the era of general awareness. 1550 warheads will not destroy the world and everyone knows that, but there will be no time to reload the second missile salvo, and everyone knows that too. Therefore, today the winner can be the one who is able to lift the maximum number of aircraft into the air and bring the maximum number of ships to sea with tactical nuclear weapons of the second strike and high-precision conventional weapons. And if the West really wanted to start a war, it should have done it right now, and even better at the very beginning of the first cadence of GDP. Therefore, please leave poster slogans for uneducated people.

        What will happen? Everything will be simple. If the West withdraws all its production from China, imposes a ban on the import of any goods from China, a ban on the export of anything to China, China will order a long life in a couple of months. There will be riots, uprisings, North against South, and so on and so forth. Sparrows will be caught again.

        There is more recklessness, the possibilities are the same. Practice shows that under the democrats the SGA successfully unleashes conflicts, but only where momentary success is guaranteed. But neither under the Republicans nor under the Democrats have they ever seriously show off where there is at least a small chance of getting a little more than the "maximum allowable level of losses."

    The Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of China ordered the crews of the country's coast guard vessels to attack military and civilian ships without additional requests and warnings. Such an order was given after the US Navy aircraft carrier strike group approached the territorial waters of China, while the coast guard was allowed to prevent the passage of American ships, and in case of provocation and aggressive actions, to immediately attack the enemy.



    Previously, the PRC coast guard did not have such powers and all issues had to be resolved through the country's Ministry of Defense, however, the published document indicates that the crews were able to use their weapons and seize any ships, and this applies not only to the territorial waters of the PRC. but also to the waters located near them, in the event of any potential danger.

      Sorry, but you seem to be confusing warships and civilian ships.
      Ships attack, and even more so capture, after thinking many times and getting permission, since an attack on a warship is a sufficient reason for war.
      Ships are another matter, the military have the right to stop and inspect them, and if necessary, detain them.
      In yesterday's message to VO, it was only about the courts, that is, civil.
      There was no mention of warships, this is a big difference.

    the command of the US Navy sent an aircraft carrier group to the South China Sea.
    How many times? Probably, in the opinion of the Americans, the Chinese from the appearance of the American AUG should be quiet and quietly hide in a corner? Their pair AUG Kim Jong-un was not frightened and showed a fig, and the Americans chatted, chatted imitating the menacingness of the "hegemon" and set off on their own. Now the Chinese will again lead ships towards the "partner" waving their flag. The Americans, once again showing how "formidable and decisive" they are, chatting quietly will go home.

    Literally the day before yesterday, on January 23, VO published an article that China had passed a law allowing the PRC coast guard ships to open fire on violators of China's maritime borders, as well as on foreign ships that entered the territorial waters of the islands considered controversial (Spratly Islands and etc.).

      Are you sure you've read about ships somewhere? can you give a link? The question is of principle, however.
      Yesterday at VO it was only about the courts, this is a fairly common practice for border guards.
      The new law allows the PLA's Coast Guard patrol ships to use "all necessary means" to stop foreign ships or prevent other actions that pose a threat to Chinese ships. In addition, Coast Guard personnel are allowed to destroy structures of other countries installed on reefs in disputed areas.

      The same law allows the PLA Coast Guard ships to restrict the entry of foreign ships into disputed waters, to stop and inspect ships of foreign states that have entered the waters claimed by China.

        "... there is not a word about ships"

        So this is an order for the Chinese in Chinese. In the beginning there was a translation
        from Chinese -> English -> Russian.
        And then the journalists wrote the article.
        If you do analytics on such subtle nuances, then you need to take the primary source.
        Well, and to speak Chinese, on the subject of what their language practice is in the official Chinese documents about the "ship" and "ship".

        The point is correct, the article really talks about ships, not ships. But, after reading the comments on this topic, I would like to say that the difference in the name - a ship, a ship, exists, in my opinion, only in Russian. All naval terms come from Britain, and there they use one word for both civil and military ships - ship

    May China not start wetting Taiwan.
    It was just that there used to be Hong Kong for which you could pull and pull China without breaking the red lines. In Hong Kong, the Chinese turned the situation around, some in Hong Kong realized that there were no prospects for the anti-Chinese devotees, either you sit down or something else will be, in any case, nothing good.

    Now we started to fiddle with Taiwan.
    But in Taiwan there was a status quo that the Americans also recognized.
    Now the US wants to rethink its approach, official contacts and arms sales.

    The Chinese are against and seem to want to stand firm. Up to the limitation of air traffic with "official" contacts and to the inspection of sea supplies for weapons.

    It could easily be something like the Caribbean crisis, but this time the US is on the other side of the board.

        China had an incident with an American reconnaissance plane flying near their borders for a long time, when its military was thinner and they were mainly limited to "the latest Chinese warnings". For escort, the Chinese sent fighters, flew close, on purpose or not, there was a collision, a Chinese fighter fell into the sea, the Americans made an emergency in China.
        The crew was released from the scout, the plane was also given away, but then (it is possible that some of the equipment was dismantled or simply studied).

        Well, now the Americans will bring in their F22s, they will cling to and fall with their wings with the Chinese.

        The Chinese will also be able to deploy the Navy in the South China Sea, and aircraft carriers are not particularly required and will be perfectly able to take off from land.

        Here, the one who is the first to lose their nerves will win. And the Chinese understand why they will rattle weapons for United China, the Americans for some island of Formosa.

        China will not slow down everything.
        Nelly two years ago, the Americans said that the US representative at the UN would come with an official visit, the Chinese said that (within the meaning) the Americans would be disgraced because they would not let them in. As a result, no one went anywhere.
        The same will happen with weapons, if it is known about the delivery of serious weapons to Taiwan, they will declare "exercises" and a restricted area around Taiwan with inspection. The Americans again surrender, if they roll in with their entire army and retreat (if the Chinese resist) then it's a shame. Therefore, it is better not to bring the situation to the edge where you have to lose face.
