The United States announced the readiness of the American fleet to stop China's attempt to seize Taiwan

50

The US naval forces are ready for active PLA actions against Taiwan, the US fleet is on duty near the island. This was stated by the chief of staff of the US Navy, Admiral Michael Gilday.


The United States is ready to frustrate Xi Jinping's plans to seize Taiwan, Washington said. It is emphasized that significant forces of the American fleet are specially located in the Asia-Pacific region to counter China, including to protect Taiwan. The Pentagon notes the "significant activity" of the Chinese fleet near the island, so the US Navy does not exclude Beijing's attempts to seize Taiwan, which they should prevent.

Admiral Michael Gildey believes that despite Beijing's statements of peaceful intentions towards Taipei, China may try to force the island back under its jurisdiction and this will happen "before the end of the decade."

Judging by the statements of the American admiral, the United States is ready to intervene in the military conflict between China and Taiwan, should it arise, despite the threat of a local clash escalating into a larger one. This means that in Washington they are admitting and planning a clash between the American fleet and the PLA Navy, because the initiative cannot come from one admiral, no matter what kind of military leader he is.

It is known that the United States announced the provision of military assistance to Taiwan with weapons, despite the protests of China, which considers the island its province. Recently, contacts between Taipem and Washington have intensified significantly. Of course, it will not come to the deployment of American troops on the island, but even the deployment of US forces near the island will cause China a lot of problems.

      Well, yes, something like that. The US clearly does not appreciate China's deviousness. What if a couple of million Chinese landed in Taiwan at the same time? lol

        And nothing will happen. Will they crawl or breaststroke there? Do you think everything is so easy? Whoever does not understand anything, he is sincerely convinced that the Anglo-Saxons deliberately delayed the opening of the 2nd front, who is smarter, he understands that a large landing operation is being prepared for years: forces are gathering, transport ships are being built in abundance, mobile infrastructure and mobile ports are being prepared. The operation itself is associated with the need for an intensive flow of reinforcements to the occupied bridgehead. A banal storm can nullify a successfully developing operation. Landing ships will fail to sink, and so there should be a lot of them.
        So the two Chinese tuba won't arrive in any way.

        Something like this. China, not Vietnam, and besides, all the necessary resources needed to slap a cunning mattress face are at his fingertips on the mainland, which cannot be said about the Americans. Most likely, the mattresses will limit their "participation" to statements, threats and arms deliveries to Taiwan in order to maintain a long-term factor of pressure on China.

      Well, here you have to hurry. If the Chinese continue and do not enter the cycle of destruction (which is the norm for China - the whole history is cycles of dawn, decline), then by the 30th year, the Americans will have to pull together the entire fleet in order to resist China, removing from the Atlantic, the Persian Gulf and the SPM ...

      And now, China is the second country after the United States, who pushed 2 AUG on a campaign at the same time.

      actually entering the war with the PRC.

      Another bluff from the USA.
      They also puffed out their cheeks with Eun, drove the AUG back and forth, and at the exit there was nothing.

      And how will the United States stop the PLA's attempt to invade Taiwan?
      Somehow from a sinking aircraft carrier, physically, it is impossible to engage in suppression!
      And China, by the time of the operation, will drive up the fleet, with which the US Navy in the region will not be able to compete quantitatively and qualitatively in a comparable proportion. Plus coastal missile systems. Here, in general, the Japanese can intervene, but who knows, maybe they will sit quietly. South Korea again.

    What does capture mean, Taiwan is an integral part of the PRC. Indeed, arrogance knows no boundaries, China will still have to resolve the issue in the foreseeable future and the Chinese people are ready for this and stand up for it.

      You know what I'll tell you about China. All problems with its "integral" parts must be resolved without the participation of Russia. After the collapse of the USSR, China suddenly had territorial issues with absolutely all the former republics of the Union. And literally in each specific case (including from the Russian Federation) disputed lands were transferred to China.
      However:

      Therefore, if the Chinese people are ready to fight for their interests in Taiwan (like Russia in Syria), then let them do it alone.

        Russia also has territories that would like to return home to Russia. The question is, does Taiwan want to return to China? Well, at least we would arrange a referendum like we did in Crimea. After talking with Ze, we would also offer him such a scenario for ending the conflict in Donbass. ...

        So, as far as is known, the Russian Federation is not going to fight for Taiwan and the PRC is not asking for it. But mutually beneficial technology help to successfully resolve the issue is quite wise. Conditionally, how they helped with the early warning system.

    And what will they do? As far as I know, the United States does not have an agreement on military assistance, and Taiwan is not a member of NATO either. And third party intervention is an act of war.

      Good question. IMHO, the States are now in general, and the Navy in particular, are absolutely not ready for such a war.
      I wonder how many AUG they can send on duty now, 2-3? It will not be enough.
      In order to fight its aviation off the coast of China, all 10 will be needed there. And they are not even close. And it is not known when they will.
      But on the other hand, China is not yet ready for war.
      So the States are engaged in rhetoric and gather together everyone they plan to rely on later.
      Japan's pants were pulled up, now Taiwan ...
      They will not enter the war without an obvious advantage. Whatever they say. hi

              The Anglo-Saxons have always done this. In the same India.
              And when he arrives at the bases in Japan, I don't know how they will pretend that this is how it should be.
              So they will get involved. They have a very decent fleet. And aviation. hi

                The bases are mentioned because there is no need to pull up all aircraft carriers, and China can conduct an offensive naval battle against America, perhaps, on a notebook in a box, since there is not enough strength, not to mention other aspects.

    Nothing more than words. Everyone understands perfectly well that the US fleet will be destroyed very quickly by the PLA, but of course it will not come to that. Time is lost, China cannot be stopped. And this is just the beginning.

    Americans are masters of the "artistic word", but they are cowardly in nature. In this case, are they ready to unleash a war with a nuclear power, moreover, a power superior to the United States in terms of population many times over, catching up, and possibly the first in terms of GDP? And why do the Americans want to die for a strange island? "No son, this is fantastic."
    To kill with someone else's hands, the Americans are happy. Throw in weapons, they can. They do it all the time to bribe the government ... But to fight a serious enemy ourselves, "don't tell my horseshoes" ...

    Those. warning that you are ready to fight China for Taiwan? We didn’t take a wide step, and you aren’t afraid to damage anything by being ready to fight with China? Or again, just words that are scattered about as something optional. Ukraine was also promised a lot, but as it smelled fried for it, they said at the beginning of this month that they would not fight with Russia for it. Probably the same is expected in Taiwan.
