China is preparing for war

51

Recent maneuvers of the People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) indicate that the Chinese military are preparing for a lightning war against Japan over the Senkaku Islands (China, Diaoyudao), said a Pacific intelligence officer fleet US Navy Captain James Fanell at a conference in San Diego.


"In addition to the long-term task (China, -" IF ") to return Taiwan under the rule of the mainland, we witnessed large-scale exercises Mission Assault 2013 naval assault troops and different types of troops, we came to the conclusion that the PLA received a new task: to be able to carry out lightning the war for the destruction of the Japanese forces in the East China Sea, after which we can only wait for the capture of Senkaku and even the southern part of the Ryukyu Islands, ”the Washington Times quoted him as saying.

According to J.Fanella, the ships of the coast guard service and the naval forces of the PRC carried out a series of coordinated provocations to intimidate the neighboring countries.

The Senkaku Islands are the subject of a sharp territorial dispute between China and Japan.

Sino-Japanese relations worsened after the Japanese government bought three islands of the archipelago from a private Japanese owner in September 2012.

Chinese ships appear regularly in the Japanese-controlled Senkaku archipelago, which causes a negative reaction in Tokyo.

          China is certainly an ambitious state but not at all suicidal!
          They do not get involved in a war with a strong enemy and prefer foreign territories only in the form of islands.
          In Southeast Asia, it is full of countries with disputed islands, it is easier to conquer and the war will not spread to its own territory if that.

              In the water areas around China, a lot of oil and gas reserves, according to some geological studies! And if they go to Russia, America will immediately arrive in time for its own selfish purposes, and will try to conclude with us a favorable alliance for itself. Although we are enemies with America, we will have no choice but to agree to an alliance, and America will not be able to defeat China without Russia ... In the meantime, China is peace-loving and has no territorial claims against us; we need to be friends with America !

              China buys them and does not experience problems. But the enemy Russia is quite uncomfortable. Nuclear weapons are available and experience in wars is large enough. But China, on the contrary, is trying to enter a small war to develop its technology. Now there are still not many forces and there is no experience of modern wars !

    Of course, they are not sure whether China will conduct real military operations. but still this option cannot be discounted !! In any mess in this part of the world, China regards Russia as its ally and big brother. The policy of modern China in relation to no-man's territories as well as disputed islands is "MY" !! And the demonstration of strength and power shows everyone that the time of sick Asians has passed, the era of the Golden Dragon has come, and now when the proud dragon spreads its wings, samurai cannot stop him !! Now everyone can see how in recent years China's soft eastern policy has changed to a tough and uncompromising one !! And we will see many more interesting things in this part of the world!

    "Great" China has been preparing for war for a long time and thoroughly. And if the ground forces are strong enough, then the Chinese Navy, in fact, does not represent a real and combat-ready force. And Japan is too tough for him ... Moreover, the Americans are behind the samurai. And the Chinese Navy will not be able to compete with the US Pacific Fleet even in numbers, not to mention the quality of weapons and professional training ...
    By the way, the recent exercises of the Navy of the PRC in which their only aircraft carrier participated, showed that the Chinese are not yet able to competently manage with such an operational connection as the AUG. So, at sea, the Han people are still in the loser squad. And the war against Japan must be waged (at least started) precisely at sea ...
    The result - show-offs, ordinary Chinese endless show-offs ...

    In early February, the news flashed the news that the Chinese authorities were proposing to side with Russia, which refuses to recognize Japan’s claims to the Kuril Islands. In response, Beijing hoped that Moscow would help him prove his right to the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea, which Japan calls Senkaku and considers its own. It seems that our leaders refused such assistance. But, it seems to me, this shows that China still intends to act through diplomacy, and not military force. Skirmishes and demonstrations of power are possible, as was the case in 2013, but no more. And it is impossible to rely on the conclusions of American experts about the intentions of other countries. Remember with what intelligence the second invasion of Iraq began.

    China will not fight Japan, since the United States is behind Japan, they can of course throw as usual, but China has US debt receipts and is not profitable - well, who will beat the debtor person (he will never repay his debt), but the United States it is beneficial to kill a person who holds debts thereby relieving himself of his obligations. (but it’s better to kill with someone else’s hands and what if it doesn’t work out and we’re not aisle) - I explain for beginners the Cucumber language =)))
    How events will develop:
    1. Japan will organize a provocation, to which China will HAVE to respond or lose face.
    2. USA, UN, NATO and all possible social activists accuse China of dictatorship
    3. Japan will land troops or warships on the disputed islands
    4. China is either full or send its landing - the beginning of a military conflict
    5. BUT! Russians can confuse the whole map layout as it was in Syria. And so point 6
    6. China will insist on signing a non-aggression agreement with the Russian Federation and assistance, etc.
    7 BUT! Russians already have their own military conflict in Ukraine and they cannot help China
    8. Under the World Pres, China surrenders.
    9. Russia is involved in the civil war in Ukraine, all the UN, NATO, etc., condemn it
    10. The US Embassy in Ukraine explodes and the Americans introduce PEACEKEEPING CONTINGENT to protect their citizens and establish order.
    11. China is offside, Russia is one against EVERYONE! (NATO, EU, Japan)
    12. Welkom 3rd WORLD!

      Why would China fight Japan. He will take the islands anyway, and Japan and the United States may at least scream. The Japanese will not dare to fight China. The islands are not worth the loss of the Chinese market. "The dog barks - the caravan is coming."

      The US war with China will end within a week. China will simply throw into the market all its treasury bills and dollars, that is, turn them into what they are - into trash. But the paper does not work in any way.

And there are still those who will not criticize and in fact there are a lot of them.

      American bonds and "IOUs" in general, which the Chinese have been actively buying for several years now, are a Chinese superweapon. If the US gets into an open conflict, then China may simply throw off American assets at a bargain price, and the Americans will find the Great Depression a childish prank. In this situation, the Americans will not be able to fight. Therefore, I think open US intervention in the conflict over the disputed islands is not possible. However, the Americans have already stated (and, if I am not mistaken, it was already this year) that the APR is now a priority for them. Most likely, they will act politically against the backdrop of playing with muscles. The Chinese will not climb into Taiwan by force, for the time being this process is not going badly for them. And we with such "friends" need to keep our ears sharp. Russia has two allies ...

      Do not confuse. China's economy is not a commodity. China exports almost exclusively industrial products for export. Militarization is not a burden for China, as evidenced by the constant growth of gold and foreign exchange reserves. China has more dollars than the United States, and it should be just China, therefore it makes no sense to fight to write off debts and losses.

        Here it is not only and not so much about strengthening the border, but rather in the fact that a minimal contingent of troops is serving on the territory where unique natural resources are located. If China really wants to conduct a land march to the north, there will be little to stop them, since the reserve is practically not provided, and the transfer of troops along one (!) Railway line will take time. We, of course, have long-standing heroic traditions of holding positions until the approach of the main forces, but why heroize ourselves if you could prepare in advance? Even in the event of a potential conflict between Japan and China, the presence of a powerful military group in this region would be an important factor in pressure on neighbors.

    You cannot close your eyes to the militarization of China, convincing yourself that "well, they will quarrel with Japan and this will be the end of it." Moreover, one should not allow oneself to be drawn into an alliance with the Chinese. Any rapprochement with China does not promise us anything good, regardless of how it proceeds further. If China wins, it will overpower us, if China loses, then we will be at the bottom with it. There are many other countries in the Pacific Ocean without such political and territorial ambitions with which to build mutually beneficial relations.

    It would be necessary to involve the Chinese in the establishment of constitutional order in the EU and the surgical removal of double standards.
    In the latter, I think, one should act on the principle of "knocking out a wedge by a wedge". When the Chinese enter Europe on a temporary basis, it will have to be accused of a treacherous attack on China and, according to the Chinese tradition and their own methods, reorganize the composition of the highest officials of the European Union, replacing them later with adequate people whose conscience is not supplanted by a position.

    China will not fight Japan, since the United States is behind Japan, they can of course throw as usual, but China has US debt receipts and is not profitable - well, who will beat the debtor person (he will never repay his debt), but the United States it is beneficial to kill a person who holds debts thereby relieving himself of his obligations. (but it’s better to kill with someone else’s hands and what if it doesn’t work out and we’re not aisle) - I explain for beginners the Cucumber language =)))
    How events will develop:
    1. Japan will organize a provocation, to which China will HAVE to respond or lose face.
    2. USA, UN, NATO and all possible social activists accuse China of dictatorship
    3. Japan will land troops or warships on the disputed islands
    4. China is either full or send its landing - the beginning of a military conflict
    5. BUT! Russians can confuse the whole map layout as it was in Syria. And so point 6
    6. China will insist on signing a non-aggression agreement with the Russian Federation and assistance, etc.
    7 BUT! Russians already have their own military conflict in Ukraine and they cannot help China
    8. Under the World Pres, China surrenders.
    9. Russia is involved in the civil war in Ukraine, all the UN, NATO, etc., condemn it
    10. The US Embassy in Ukraine explodes and the Americans introduce PEACEKEEPING CONTINGENT to protect their citizens and establish order.
    11. China is offside, Russia is one against EVERYONE! (NATO, EU, Japan)
    12. Welkom 3rd WORLD!

    Russia is not involved anywhere in any war. Do not confuse God's gift with fried eggs. Conflict in another state, we only observe events no more

    As long as there is China, the USA and Russia, no one will fight against each other. If you fantasize, then the United States and China against Russia (well, a very rich territory) are somehow plausible.

      Nobody wants to share this territory (radioactive cemetery), and there will be nobody (radioactive cemetery No. 2 across the ocean). Maybe some pygmies will survive and share, only after much more then 20000 years. Or maybe some kind of reasonable cockroaches.
