American Admiral: British Navy sends a clear signal to Beijing by sending an aircraft carrier strike group east

American Admiral James Stavridis, who at one time headed the European Command of the US Army, spoke in the Western press about the British naval navy... According to Admiral Stavridis, the British navy "has always assisted the US Navy in important operations."


From a statement by the American admiral to the US press:

British warships were invariably well controlled, manned and armed. We have always had excellent communication with them. When we boarded to the British allies, we could have a glass of foam at dinner in the wardroom, unlike our ships, where the "dry law" operates.

US Admiral Stavridis comments on London's new doctrine dubbed "Global Britain".

Recall that on the basis of this doctrine, the authorities of the United Kingdom are going to strengthen their fleet, sending it to different regions of the oceans. One of the tasks is to send an aircraft carrier strike group to the maritime borders of China.

James Stavridis:

By sending an aircraft carrier strike group eastward, the British Navy sends a clear signal to Beijing. The strike group, led by the aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, includes two advanced air defense destroyers and two very powerful anti-submarine frigates, as well as a nuclear submarine. The air wing consists of 5th generation fighters.

According to Stavridis, an American destroyer with the Aegis system and a Dutch Navy warship will join the British AUG.

Such an aircraft carrier strike group, according to Stavridis, will be able to restrain China from "aggression against Taiwan."

American admiral:

A strong UK presence in these waters (in the Pacific) will be welcomed not only in Washington, but also at the headquarters of the US Pacific Fleet in Hawaii and, most of all, the US Seventh Fleet in Yokosuka, Japan.

It should be added that the AUG of the British Navy was still in the Mediterranean Sea, from where two ships from its composition were sent to the Black Sea area "to contain Russia." It turns out that Britain is going to "send signals" to both China and Russia simultaneously with one AUG.

            They are afraid of Russia in a direct military conflict, so there is an attempt to destroy it from within. In the 90s, they did not finish it off, and now they are tearing and tossing.
            And China is not Russia for them! At the end of the 80s they squeezed their liberals with tanks and their economic spurt went, well, they created the Army to the envy of the whole world!

                It was Alexander who was forced !!! I remember they also tried and are trying to play off with China ... Everyone wants to solve their problems in the economy with someone else's hands and write off their debts ..
                The United States is terribly afraid that China will present them with promissory notes for a couple of trillions and, in general, will impose sanctions .. The Chinese are still pragmatically keeping quiet and continue to build up their military and economic power.

                I was referring to the price paid by the British, in the ship's composition, for this pile of stones. They already have little of their former greatness. So someone piled on someone, that's another question. And this is with the banana republic, but what if there is a serious opponent?

                  It was precisely this that was a manifestation of its former greatness - the willingness to put a bunch of expensive equipment and people behind a pile of stones "somewhere out there." Moreover, the operation did not in any way affect the image and standard of living of the British, as they rotted in their capitalism, and did not notice the war laughing
                  Well, who piled on whom? Whose islets? ))
                  With a serious adversary, the war is waged in a different format - after the first skirmish, decisions are made primarily at the government level, and is it worth it, and if so, are we fighting at all, if so, to what border is conventional and when we turn to warmth and light ... If there were, say, the seizure of the islands of the PRC (hypothetically), then there would be nuclear submarines to blockade the islands for the sake of. After the first badabum, they would sit down at the negotiating table, based on their results, they would decide how to proceed further.
                  Well, measures of economic pressure - above all

                        I, of course, am not a strategist and not a politician, but somehow it does not work to consider Britain a serious enemy, she was blown away somehow after the Second World War, but during that war the British army did not glorify itself with any victories, the navy - yes , these guys knew how to fight and went to the end, but now they do not have a fleet, as well as we, sinners. And if there is a big mess, then they will not perform solo, but only together with the entire European Caudle and behind the American uncle's back. So they are unlikely to pull on the opponent "one-on-one".

              There was no war. There was an attack by Georgians on the post of peacekeepers, there was a retaliatory blow, after which "timid Georgians fled." There, in order to finally understand and take Tbilisi, one Chechen battalion "Vostok" would be enough for the eyes, so these Georgian warriors, as soon as they heard the Chechen speech on the air, threw tanks, missiles and dris ... (sorry) pulled in the opposite direction from enemy direction. So it was not a war there, but a punitive action, unfortunately, with losses. smile drinks

    nevertheless, they took their islands on the other side of the world

    Still not to take it if the British did not make it out of the top five in terms of the military budget, and Argentina, on average, did not even make it into the top 40 countries. The level of military spending is not always an indicator, but nevertheless.

    If the Falklands had been beaten 100 km closer to Argentina, the war would have ended differently.
    Aviation worked not to the limit. One or two maneuvers and landing on the water on return.
    Well, do not forget, according to statistics, 80% of Argentine bombs and missiles that hit the ships did not explode. This is definitely not the merit of the British.

      Would be 100 km closer, the British would attack airfields directly on the territory of Argentina hi
      The result, in any case, would be in their favor, since Argentines, as you rightly noted, are slovens

      This is entirely due to the slovens of the Argentines.

      This is unlikely. They would have provided a naval blockade of the islands in any case. And without supplies from the mainland, the surrender of the Argentine landing would be only a matter of time for the banal reason for the lack of food.

    British Navy sends a clear signal to Beijing by sending an aircraft carrier strike group east
    that the Chinese are going in the right direction ...
    Such an aircraft carrier strike group, according to Stavridis, will be able to restrain China from "aggression against Taiwan."
    It is dangerous, very dangerous to overestimate oneself in such a way and underestimate the enemy so much.

    -According to Stavridis, an American destroyer with the Aegis system, as well as a Dutch Navy warship, will join the British AUG.
    You don't often see an admiral with a "naval" surname.
    I repeat, the British could not themselves (without those who joined) form a full-fledged AUG, but they are sending signals.
    Not SOS yet ...

    Who knows how many aircraft carriers in China are already combat-ready and equipped with airplanes and pilots. And the fleet in China has a wagon and a small cart for meeting the English signalmen! They can start leading them from the Red Sea, and put four of their own on each of their pennants. ...

    When we boarded to the British allies, we could have a glass of foam at dinner in the wardroom, unlike our ships, where the "dry law" operates.
