American general: US and Japan are preparing for a possible confrontation with China to protect Taiwan

Commander of the XNUMXrd Marine Expeditionary Force of the United States, Lieutenant General James Bierman said that the United States and Japan are preparing for a possible confrontation with China in order to protect Taiwan. As the military clarified, the US and Japanese armed forces are strengthening military cooperation, conducting more joint operations in order to be ready for a potential conflict with China in the event of military action against Taiwan.


According to Birman, Washington, along with its allies in Asia, are acting in the same way as Western countries in relation to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which are training Ukrainian troops and supplying weapons to Kyiv.

We call it theater organization. We are doing similar activities in Japan, the Philippines and other regions.

- said the military.

The start of the so-called strengthening of cooperation between Washington and Tokyo will be given after the security talks between the heads of foreign policy and defense departments of the two countries, which are expected to take place on January 11th. This should also contribute to the meeting between Joe Biden and Fumio Kishida, also scheduled for January. The reason for holding the summit was the decision of the Japanese authorities to drastically strengthen the country's defense capability, providing for a significant increase in spending for these purposes in the amount of 2% of GDP, which is equivalent to $320 billion. All this goes against the policy of "active pacifism" enshrined in the Constitution of post-war Japan.

As The New York Times reported earlier, the White House has made active efforts to re-equip Taiwan's defense system to repel possible "aggression" from Beijing.

Recall that recently, military maneuvers near the island began to be carried out more often by China. Beijing, in turn, has repeatedly stated that all these actions were a response to the visit in August last year, the former speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in Taipei. Moreover, the PRC regularly accuses the United States of provoking off the coast of Taiwan. As noted in the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the country strictly adheres to the principle of "one China", considering the island an integral part of the territory of the PRC.

    The United States in all such cases is like a plug for the shady. Cashing in is cashing in, others are only incited, but they themselves are no-no.

      As in the case of Russia, so in the case of China, the verbal assurances and oath of the Anglo-Saxons are worth absolutely nothing.
      Until the politicians of other countries learn this axiom, until then they will step on the same rake called "The Anglo-Saxons promised, but did not fulfill their promises."

    . The US and Japan are preparing for a possible confrontation with China to protect Taiwan

    In general, the United States told Japan that they simply had to become Chinese Ukraine. At least that's how it will be if it comes to that.

    I understand correctly that the United States and Japan are ready to fight China - in order to protect Chinese territory from China ???
    This is about the same as that the States will go to war with Russia - to protect from Russia ... Khakassia. Or Kalmykia.
    Am I sleeping?

      No. The US said that Japan should become the outskirts of China, if something happens

        So after all - the Japanese and Chinese are "fraternal peoples"?
        As we are with the Ukrainians. Especially with the last two or three generations who grew up with "independence". negative

      I am very interested - how will the United States practically provide this assistance?
      Send 5-10 thousand Marines to Taiwan - Comrade Xi will laugh.
      Will they want to bomb China like Libya? - Comrade Xi will fall out of his chair from laughter.

      How is there still anyone in the world who believes in "American help"? What are they thinking?

    What opposition, what defense? If neither Japan nor the United States recognize Taiwan as a state. They so shyly call the embassy of this unrecognized country, the representative office of Taipei. Taiwan provincial capital.
    If you are already going to intervene, then admit it, but somehow dumb

    The Japanese-Americans, as always, know better that it is they who need to protect the Chinese from the Chinese and the Russians from the Russians.

    And the operation to capture the production of advanced microchips by the Americans and transfer it to the territory of the United States is successfully going according to plan. All other "allies" know that as a result they will get a monopolist in the production and sale of the most high-tech electronics with all the ensuing charms, but they have nowhere to go. Collaboration between the wolf pack and the rabbit community to ensure the food safety of wolves.
