"Signal for US military bases": foreign media reacted to the passage of an aircraft carrier group of the Chinese Navy south of Japanese Okinawa

The Japanese and Western media did not ignore the combat patrols carried out by the aircraft carrier strike group of the PRC Navy. At the head of the Chinese AUG is the aircraft carrier Liaoning. It also includes five warships. According to some reports, these are two destroyers belonging to the Type 052D Luyang, the Type 055 missile destroyer, the Type 054A frigate and the Type 901 Fuyu fast support ship.


Japanese and Western media attention was drawn to the fact that the Chinese carrier strike group passed south of Okinawa - through the Miyako Strait. This is a fairly wide (at least 140 nautical miles) strait between the Japanese territories of Miyako and Okinawa.

Despite the fact that the strait is open to international navigation, including passage by warships, in Japan, the patrols by the Chinese AUG were assessed "as a signal for US military bases located in Okinawa Prefecture."

Several days ago, foreign media published materials that said that if the United States tried to "help Taiwan when attacked by Chinese troops," China could "launch a missile attack on American bases in Japan." It was noted that Japan "in any case will not be able to avoid participation in a military conflict," as it provides territory for the US military.

Now in foreign media he notes that the passage of the PLA Navy's AUG through the Miyako Strait "is additional evidence of the seriousness of the Chinese threat."

Moreover, for some reason, the same media do not mention that Chinese warships are frequent guests in the Miyako Strait. If the aircraft carrier strike groups of the PRC pass this way quite rarely, then the single warships of the Chinese Navy appear there with relatively short intervals of time.

      it will be worse when AV Nanjing "breaks down" east of Tokyo (for six months) and a hologram (100 x 100m-like the Crimean Bridge) will be projected with a photo of the killed Chinese in Nanjing.
      and they will also refuel on Kunashir without returning to Dalian

        There is a connection. Si..ch. Motor Sich. The Americans slapped hard on the nose through their slimes. Therefore, Mr. Xi can clap like that ... recognizing the Crimea as Russian, and the LDNR's independence. He is not in a hurry and does not fuss while he is dealing with his Komsomol-globalists. But she will answer.

          ========
          I did not touch on this topic, because, firstly, the "kidok" with "Motor Sichu", this is already held the fact and the ball are now "in the half of the field of comrade Xi" (and the patience of the Chinese is great, but not unlimited, and it seems they will soon move from veiled threats to real "whipping"). And secondly, because the problems with Sotor Sichu) and the conflict in Donbass are, as physicists say: unrelated processes "(i.e., processes whose mutual influence on each other is negligible little!). Therefore, what is happening in the Donbass seems to be "violet" for him, but the threat of economic interaction (and possibly the political recognition of Crimea as Russian) is for him an effective whip for the obstinate and boorish "rulers"!

              that first of all - a "kidok" with "Motor Sichu", this is already a fact
              Both you and your opponent, to put it mildly, interpret in a simplified way
              the situation with Motor Sich and the Chinese. But in fact, the Chinese
              MCs have never been bought, so to speak. After all, in fact, in 2018
              they TRIED to buy 56% from a PRIVATE PERSON - Boguslaev.
              The court immediately imposed AREST on these 56% - there was no loosening
              for such a deal from government agencies of Ukraine. That is, they are not a single day
              did not legally own a SHARE in the MC, Further struggle at all
              led to the fact that the state "capitalized" these 56% and became
              owner of 100% MS. So where and who threw the Chinese? Boguslaev,
              who managed to take a loan from them for 100 million
              this figure)? So he is a private person!
              This is the same thing that you agreed with my younger brother
              about the purchase of his share in our parents' house. I, like an older brother,
              disagreed and filed a lawsuit. The court canceled this transaction of yours and imposed
              arrest for my brother's share of 56%. So did you buy the house or not (against
              my will)? And, my brother also begged you for money (in advance)?
              Well, deal with him!
              And finally, the court completely took my side and my share.
              lousy brother 56%, WHICH WANTED TO THROW ME, handed it to me.
              Now I am the owner of 100% of this house.
              What CLAIMS can you have against me?

                Further explanations are long, confusing, but generally understandable!
                So what's the "kidok"? And the fact that the arrest by the state of Ukraine, shares with their subsequent confiscation and "nationalization" with the inclusion of Motor Sich in the list of enterprises not subject sale to non-residents of Ukraine, happened AFTER the transaction and payment by the buyer of the purchased securities, and not subsidiaries.
                So were arrested, and then "nationalized" shares ALREADY belonging to Chinese legal entities.
                PS Of course, they will investigate in court, but Ukraine's position in this trial looks very frail. I think they have very, very few chances! For, as you know: "the law has no reverse force" (although this is not about Ukraine: everything is possible there!).

                  I can't vouch, of course, for the accuracy (not a lawyer), but already
                  more than once and on different resources, competent people have described
                  the situation is like this - Boguslaev, as one of the owners of the MC wished
                  sell his 56% stake to the Chinese, BUT COULD NOT GET
                  IN THE STARTED PROCEDURE PERMISSION for this transaction
                  from the state. The deal fell through. And for these 56% in 2018
                  year seized. In fact, IN ANY REGISTER there is
                  such an owner is China. Legally - nobody sold anything,
                  nobody bought anything. They have no bill of sale on their hands.
                  Kidok is Pinchuk's Kryvorizhstal - sold to him for 6 billion,
                  then they were taken away for a formal reason - did not fulfill
                  undertaken obligations, and sold to the Indians for 24 billion.
                  And as an ordinary citizen, I have a question - the plant is privatized
                  FREE BY COLLECTIVE, by issuing shares. Like Boguslaev
                  PERSONALLY became 56% of the shares, I think everyone understands. What the hell is he PERSONALLY
                  sells a plant for hundreds of millions of dollars?
                  And although you are against, I will continue in my own style, when my father (USSR) was building
                  house, I was already an adult, I worked and invested my money in this house.
                  And my little brother was still running around with a dummy. Then my father died, I developed
                  home further. The grown brother was allowed for 1 UAH. (conditionally) reside
                  in PART of the house under the Agreement - well, there must be at least one living soul in the yard.
                  What the hell is he SELLING WITHOUT MY PERMISSION?
                  Does he have a TV and a washing machine there? Let the TV take it.
                  If Pinchuk bought KS, then he was returned 6 billion (out of 24).
                  NOBODY SHOULD RETURN ANYTHING to this grandfather!
                  And that's exactly what Lukashenka did to him. Why are there no complaints about the father ?:

                    I'm not a lawyer either, but I'm a little familiar with corporate law (I had to work). So, ANY investor will not acquire the Central Bank "burdened" by the obligations (without reservations), as well as the Central Bank, for transactions with which the permission of the State is required (especially in SUCH volumes), WITHOUT detailed acquaintance with ALL, without exception, permissive and guarantee documents! You DO NOT even IMAGINE what grandiose and painstaking work goes around such deals!
                    How many people (including cool specialists) are involved there, how many tons of paper are transferred ... Such a deal takes months to prepare ... impetuous transactions - but this is just an exception that proves the rule! There it was no more, no less, about 3 (THREE) billion "bucks" ..... I think - the Chinese have been preparing for it for a long time ... This is not for you to buy a TV in a store! Here we were talking about a DUAL-purpose enterprise! And the Chinese in investment programs behave O-O-Very carefully and CAREFULLY! Mentality, sir! request

                      I just can't understand why they needed this MS.
                      In Ukraine for all 30 years, except for its own oligarchs
                      (Akhmetov, Firtash, Zhevago, Kolomoisky, etc.) NOBODY
                      NO PLANTS BOUGHT (foreign buyers
                      I mean). ArcelorMittal is an exception - it has such
                      the same factories are everywhere. All you need is technology, development,
                      minds they can easily get and probably got
                      Examples with North Koreans are on everyone's lips, again
                      Antonov and Kazakhstan is a famous story. And this whole bunch
                      structures plus problems with the authorities that are changing,
                      like a kaleidoscope. Corn experience is not enough for them?

                        Anatoly! Yes, they needed Motor Sich for themselves! They needed technology! The Chinese themselves are firmly bogged down in the problems of powerful high-temperature bypass taxiways and are still unable to solve them. So we decided to "profit" in Ukraine.
                        Actually, I don't think they were going to develop production in Ukraine. Rather were going carefully examine all technological chain and design documentation, and then take out necessary equipment (together with the "specialists") to China - away from the political and legislative bacchanalia "nezalezhnaya" ..... This assumption is supported by the fact that earlier, the Chinese were not interested in Ukrainian mechanical engineering. And only when they had problems with the engines (for some reason they can't copy the Russian ones), they immediately became interested ...
                        You quite rightly noted that big business DOES NOT GO to Ukraine! Economic and political uncertainty interferes + just some kind of "legislative orgy", and even a "hot spot" in the Donbass. Their attempts to invite business to Ukraine and immediately repeat about the "Russian threat" look just ridiculous ..... Well, like children, by God! And then there's the Motor Sich scandal .... Madhouse !!!

      And he doesn't need to hear, Bidon urgently needs to flog someone for the edification of the Chinese "Whatever their nose is turned up," In addition, Bidon said that Putin should answer for the fact that he is a Murderer. But he didn’t say how he answered, so we’re waiting for "Which side will it fly from." Isn't it an option to play the Donbass card? Everything is in the best traditions of the Saxons - by someone else's hands.

Now, if, in response to the activation of China, under pressure from the Americans, the shares were seized and the Ukrainian Motor Sich was nationalized - then yes!

              PS And how did you manage to reach the "major"? lol hi
              Well, this is just understandable. and further; Well, if so, then let's, as they say on the fingers. Using your post as an example.
              This is how it turns out: If a boor spat on my boot in a tram - I will go kick the neighbor's dog in revenge ???
              Ham # 1 yelled at you, showing a desire to spit on your boot. At this time, another boor # 2 is pushing you !!! And you start to beat him, blast him, beat him by throwing him out of the tram laughing Now tell me what the probability is that Ham # 1 will spit on your boot. This is clearer to you.

                  No Vladimir is not logic, it is analytics. For the Americans, read Bidon, how the air needs to be indicatively flogged, preferably by someone else's hands, and at the same time that everyone would understand who organized it all. As a warning to others who decided to go against the will of the owner. For example, the same Germany, Hungary and everyone else who looks towards Russia. And especially China. I hope you don’t need to explain what Sorites are. hi

                    No, Oleg! Is not analytics... Analytics is above all logically structured a chain of cause-and-effect relationships identified on the basis of an analysis of an array of information.

                    All of this is true, but where did it all start? From what you think the states are in reply to the Chinese "muscle-flexing" (near their bases in Japan), can "stir up" something in the Donbass. And I've been trying to prove to you for a whole hour that this is NOT SO! That is, they can "stir up" something in the Donbass, and even with a very high degree of probability, but just not in order to "shake a finger at comrade Xi"! What's the use of shaking a finger at the offender in the back? You need to threaten in the face! Now, if you suggested that in revenge on comrade Xi, the Yankees can arrange "dancing with tambourines" around the Spratly Islands ..... Then Yes! No questions asked! And so ... as physicists say: "the forces of interaction between these two objects (Donbass and China) vanishingly small".....

                      Well, Vladimir, you are not the first year on the site and I think not the last, just as I am not the first and I hope not the last. Therefore, I propose to postpone our argument and stock up on popcorn, I think in the near future we will find out which of the two of us was closer to the truth. drinks

    And what is the signal?
    Well, gone. Along the permitted paths. Only fans of post-apocalyptic films will believe in China's attack on Amerov's bases on the Japanese islands. Or is it now fashionable to look for conspiratorial components in any troop movement? So that's why they are maneuvers to move, move ...

      If the American AUG passed, it is "ensuring democracy", if the Chinese one is a "challenge" or "threat" ...
      You should not look for logic where there is none.

    This is the third time the Liaoning has sailed between Okinawa Island and Miyako Island.
    The ship was last seen in the waters in April 2018 (not literal translation)

    By the way, the Chinese are trolling about concerns:
    PLAN: Sails ships through the most direct international waterway to the Pacific (a few hundred miles from the Chinese mainland)
    TWZ: Ominous signs of Chinese aggression towards Japan

    USN: Sails CSG's across transit 12m from Chinese territory
    TWZ: Why would China object to this? It's perfectly legal ‍

    Japan will have the worst in this story in the event of a conflict in Taiwan. I think the Americans will do everything possible and impossible to get Japan involved in the conflict.
    This is in one squabble with Taiwan, how many competitors the United States can remove from the market.

    There is a demonstration of force from the Chinese side, so the Americans urgently need to snap Comrade Xi on the nose, so a victorious mess in Ukraine is quite real.

    in Japan, the patrol by the Chinese AUG was assessed "as a signal to US military bases located in Okinawa Prefecture."
    And why did the Japanese decide that this is a signal specifically for the Americans, and not for the Japanese, incl.? The disputed islands between China and Japan, which means the pennants are shown not only to the Americans. And the Chinese are good fellows - diplomatic politeness with politeness, but their capabilities must also be demonstrated.
