Pentagon chief: "US advantage over China is melting"

The US Secretary of Defense begins his Asian voyage, during which he plans to visit several countries, including India, Japan and South Korea. Before the start of the trip, General Lloyd Austin said that the United States intends to "synchronize watches with its allies in order to contain China."


The head of the Pentagon:

This is a key issue in our cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. We must strengthen and coordinate our capabilities and actions with key allies. We are concerned about the pace at which China is modernizing its army.

According to Austin, "the advantage that the United States had over China is fading, but it still remains."

The US Secretary of Defense noted that this advantage must be increased, including through close contacts with allies in the macroregion.

Lloyd Austin:

Our goal is to ensure that there is a capability and realistic operational plans to contain China or anyone else who wants to fight the United States.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is also traveling with the head of the Pentagon on a tour of Asia. At the same time, Blinken is going to meet with his Chinese counterpart. The meeting is scheduled for March 18th.

Against this background, in India, Lloyd Austin's words were taken as a signal that there is an opportunity to convince the head of the Pentagon of the undesirability of imposing sanctions on the purchase of the S-400 air defense system from the Russian Federation. New Delhi is going to explain to the Washington guests that anti-aircraft missile systems are being purchased "precisely for the purpose of containing China, which the United States is constantly talking about."

      ensure that the capability and realistic operational plans are in place to contain China or anyone else who wants to fight the US

      What about? Someone wants to fight the USA? But the walk at public expense will be pleasant.

      Eun, as a good artist, can very impressively pause and ignore US efforts, which naturally discourages the "exceptional" and makes them nervous. yes And let the measures first determine who is in charge of them - an old feeble-minded senile or Kamala peeping out from behind his back. And Eun will wait. repeat

    If the countries of visit were announced: China, North Korea and Oymyakon, it would be interesting.

    Could help the Russian Federation if the border with China was controlled by the United States (the Russian government would broadcast the will of the United States, like Ukraine)

    The United States finally scored the secretary of defense for civilian status, which they trumped all the way - democratic democracy as it is.

    Terribly strange times are coming. White negroes oppress the Ku Klux Klan in the homeland, the Jews stood under the fascist moisture in Ukraine. All these changes are not good. No wonder it is said - God forbid you to live in an era of change.

      Therefore, the Ku Klux Klan, apparently not without reason, was organized by the comrades. They-Falcons sensed in their hearts how the matter could end.
      Brought on niggas - get the village tractor!
      Backfired - slave-owning cuisine.
      Nothing on Earth passes without a trace! As Comrade Gradsky taught in one not unknown pestna.

    I look at this general, the first defense minister of this color, and I understand that our "partners" are turning into the United States of Africa. And the advantage over China is melting like white snow ...

    I'm not a racist, don't get me wrong. But in Asia, skin color is very attentive. China is watching, North Korea too ... In Singapore, for example, there is an unwritten hierarchy of descent among the main population groups: whites -> Chinese -> Indians -> Malays in descending order, which characterizes their colonial past. Blacks are even less honored there.
    And the Asians talked to Obama, but the local press periodically threw in almost "apologies" that the boss had to, plus they wrote about America's shame. I read about China in this vein, that the people were gently told about the importance of diplomacy with a distinguished guest.

      As one movie hero said to a Negro: "You yourself are black, like a bastard. You read about Moidodyr" ....

        I prefer the Krolikov brothers from "Shirley Myrli" with their attitude towards blacks.

    Is the photo really the head of the Pentagon?
    A stern man. Order bearer. An excellent family man, I suppose. With his one sight, you immediately want to surrender to the mercy of fate.
    Judging by the physiognomy, you can't forget with him.
