American AUG off the coast of China - the first "signal" to Beijing from Biden

The United States sent an aircraft carrier strike group to the South China Sea, and the PLA navy is conducting naval exercises in the same area. According to military experts, the atmosphere in Sino-US relations after the election of President Joseph Biden remains tense.


The US 7th Fleet, in charge of the Pacific, has sent an aircraft carrier group led by the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt into the South China Sea. The presence of the AUG in the sea washing the coast of the Celestial Empire was explained in the United States by concern for free shipping. It is noted that this is the first "signal" to Beijing from the new US administration headed by President Joe Biden.

Beijing reacted to the US actions and decided to hold its own naval exercises in the South China Sea.

The United States has conducted a major operation, and the People's Liberation Army must notify the Americans that it is ready to meet this challenge

- writes the Hong Kong edition.

According to experts, China will test the US reaction to its actions, defining the "boundaries of what is permitted."

The US itself notes that despite the harsh criticism of Trump's policies, the new President Joe Biden generally supports the former president's policy towards China. Washington has already announced the growing threat from Russia and China, condemned the "genocide" of the Uighurs, and promised to support Taiwan.

The new head of the Pentagon Austin Lloyd and the director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes also spoke about China, and they promised to "closely monitor Beijing's actions."

            And what for them, for the first time, or what: to run and run away - is this how they demonstrate the flag, showing a piece from around the corner, completely spreading pairs under their 33 knots (what if they don't catch up?) request ?

          So that would be yes, only here is a slightly different situation. If S. Korea has already adapted to live in conditions of isolation and sanctions, and Eunwoo has nothing to lose in the event of a cut and it remains to get the only trump card in the form of a vigorous club, which forces the mattresses to keep a certain distance, then they can put pressure on Beijing given the dependence of the Chinese economy on sea transportation, since up to 80% of the turnover is carried out by sea. I do not think that the mattresses will decide to use their own AUG, but they can create problems at sea in order to force the PRC to make concessions. Although China is now not in the state it was 30 years ago, and it may well go to ram some American trough in order to test the readiness of mattresses for power options. Along the way, the hegemon will ask for trouble.

              The agreement is of course important, but in this topic it is not entirely appropriate - is not it? And yet, yes, since you mentioned it (the START-3 Treaty), it was extended on the same conditions as before, without changes. The topic under discussion. I do not think that among experts and consultants we have hopeless suckers who are ready to give up their interests. As a matter of fact, the previous agreement expired on February 5 and Russia did not succeed in obtaining any concessions for the remaining time from the Russian side, and therefore they went to extend the agreement without additional conditions, because it was no longer possible to whip up special privileges either in time or in the content of the treaty. As for us, we have already remained within the same existing realities that developed at the time of ratification, in fact, simply confirming the existing balance of power.

                And we definitely need this agreement and exactly this arrangement? Especially if we take into account who and in whose interests this agreement was adopted. This agreement was created to please amers, a pest and to the detriment of Russia. Why should we reduce the weapons that are more profitable for us, or not build up. And they can build up the weapons that are beneficial to the enemies without any restrictions.

                  The fact is that as of the current moment, or today, WE WERE IN IT anyway. Its effect was terminated only from February 5. Renewal done without additional conditions from the American side, i.e. on the same grounds. In fact, nichrome has not changed. The mattresses, due to the critically short time, themselves realized that further speculation with the treaty with respect to Russia would not fail, and it would also be impossible to involve China as a third party, and therefore they froze the topic for the next five years, while simultaneously demonstrating to the world that supposedly The can is prone to relaxation, but in fact they gave the world a solution to the problem that they themselves created. The formula is as simple as a children's potty - the US "peacekeepers" proposed, Russia the "aggressor" agreed, China is "hostile" and deserves blame from the world community. In other words, from the point of view of image acquisitions, mattresses with Biden are "good fellows", and Russia and China are "radishes". But, I repeat, we remained in the same conditions and within the framework of the agreement that existed from the moment of its signing.

                    So I say, the Americans are freely building up all their types of weapons, and we are all marking time because of the treaty once imposed on us by the same amers. IMHO in such weapons as nuclear weapons, in any case, the moment of sufficiency comes. When a further increase in quantity no longer makes sense. In this case, no restrictions are required. Just physically, what's the point of destroying the same America two or three or five times, if just one is enough. But now we do not have enough opportunity to guarantee the destruction of all NATO. At the same time, if we remove from the calculations of nuclear weapons, consolidated NATO with conventional weapons will be able to destroy Russia. Well, who then benefits from this agreement? Certainly not Russia. For we can only hope for unacceptable losses, while NATO can quite afford to destroy us completely.

                      NATO is 28 European countries, minus one mangy dog ​​named USA. It makes no sense to huddle the entire territory of Europe at once, since US nuclear weapons are located in four European countries - Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and separately in Turkey (in the amount of 150 B-61-12 bombs), which will be the main targets for initial strike. As for the owners of nuclear weapons in France and Great Britain, I do not think that these countries, even being bound by the action of the collective security treaty, will be among those who wish to proactively obtain nuclear ashes on their territory, all the more knowing that their missile defense system does not guarantee them 100% protection, especially after the appearance of hypersonic weapons in Russia. As a matter of fact, the very threat of withdrawal from the treaty can for the most part be regarded as an invitation to Russia to a new arms race, but given the further development of the economic crisis, it becomes too expensive for the United States itself, and therefore, it seems to me, this five-year delay is formalized ... However, in the future, they will return to this topic. hi
                      And yet, yes, Russia is spelled with a capital letter.
                      Certainly not Russia

              So that would be yes, but as far as the topic of garbage is concerned, as of today, China has already introduced a ban on its import for recycling from anywhere, which has partly become our problem. But the fact that China began to actively sell American debt securities, having reduced their weight by 100 billion, became a toothache for mattresses, because a trillion bucks are not lying on the road, especially given that the demand for American paper is falling steadily. An attempt to put pressure on China through the military component may lead to the fact that Xi considers Europe's papers to be much more reliable. Along the way, over the past 10 years, the "hegemon's" powder flasks have become pretty damp, and the more he tries to threaten, the less chances he has to seriously shoot. This can be seen with the naked eye, even from the fact that the US initiatives are supported by an ever smaller number of countries, and the number of abstentions and those who are against is steadily growing.

    The only remedy against the FSA is the rejection of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, and for us, plus the rejection of the euro as a freely convertible regional currency. I still don’t understand how the communists in the 80s agreed to green candy wrappers. People in our country are injecting into a pandemic risking their lives, and all the economically developed countries of Europe, plus England (in the United States, there was almost a revolution in general), are in a deep lockdown, and the ruble exchange rate is again falling into the abyss.

    this is the first "signal" to Beijing from the new US administration headed by President Joe Biden.
    And before that, Trump also had a "first signal" to Beijing in the same place and with the participation of the AUG? As I wrote earlier on this topic - they will chat about demonstrating the flag and leave in their own way. At the same time, everyone is happy with their own opinion, and most importantly, the "allies" will look at the fact that the United States is "fighting" for their interests.
