Send signal to the "islanders"

51
Another idea of ​​the Pentagon is to send warships to the Spratly archipelago in the South China Sea. There, the Chinese with might and main concreted reefs and even built an airfield. To send ships means to give Beijing an unambiguous signal: Washington does not intend to put up with the attempts of the Celestial Empire to control the South China Sea. Demonstration of American power on the water should take place in the coming days.




Recall that China claims a significant part of the South China Sea within the boundaries of the nine-dotted line: the Spratly archipelago and the Paracel Islands. These islands also consider Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Indonesia and Brunei. The “appropriation” of islands and the marine zone by China, which is leading the construction of artificial bulk structures, does not like the United States very much. Washington believes that the Chinese may interfere with the freedom of navigation in the area.

Late evening on October 13 RIA News" reported from Washington about the statement by US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. He said the United States will continue operations in the South China Sea. Washington objects to the policy of the PRC to build artificial islands and to determine the 12-mile zone around them.

A few days earlier in a British newspaper "The Financial Times" A report by Washington correspondent Demetri Sevastopulo was published. The material is devoted to countering the US construction of Beijing in the South China Sea.

The United States is ready to send ships to the Chinese artificial islands in the South China Sea. Thus, Washington intends to give a signal to Beijing: America does not recognize Chinese maritime territorial claims.

A high-ranking US official (not named) told the Financial Times that the ships would pass in the 12-mile maritime zone off the Spratly archipelago, which China considers its own.

This step, the newspaper notes, is likely to increase tensions between the two powers. Moreover, the information appeared amid controversy over commercial cyber espionage (the US claims that China is engaged in such espionage).

Sevastopulo recalls that China’s “self-affirmation” in the South China Sea has increased in recent years. The US fears that the Chinese will encroach on the freedom of navigation in the sea area, through which 30% of world trade passes. Over the past two years, Beijing has stepped up its "maritime activities," the author writes, turning thousands of acres of land into runways and building a number of military installations.

Military experts say that the construction of artificial islands is aimed at strengthening the maritime presence of the PRC. By expanding the boundaries, the Chinese fleet will be able to operate far from its native shores, especially outside the so-called first island chain.

Moreover, Chinese warships appear in waters close to the United States. Last month, five vessels traveled off the coast of Alaska; Obama was on a visit to the Arctic region, and the nearest Chinese fleet arrived to the continental US "without an invitation."

US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter for several months in favor of decisive naval action. The White House resisted this initiative, fearing that such events would "escalate the situation in the disputed waters of the South China Sea." But in the end Obama agreed with Carter. A positive decision could have been affected by the “freezing” of issues that were not resolved during Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States. For example, at the joint press conference with Comrade C. last month, the US president said that he expressed "serious concern about the land reclamation, construction and militarization of the disputed territories."

The new American course, the journalist believes, is aimed at strengthening the position of the United States, according to which China’s territorial claims do not comply with the norms of international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Speaking recently in Australia, Admiral Scott Swift, commander of the Pacific fleet The United States, criticized China, not calling it directly, but stating that "some countries interpret the freedom of the seas as an opportunity for conquest." According to the admiral, a similar trend is "particularly egregious in the contested waters."

China, we add, has reacted violently to such newspaper stories. news. The press appeared the statement of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Chinese authorities said they would not tolerate violations in their territorial waters. "We will not allow any country to violate the Chinese water and airspace over the Spratly Islands in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and flight," "Vesti" the words of the representative of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hua Chunyun, said by her at the daily briefing. “We urge all interested parties not to take any provocative actions and prudently take a responsible position on issues of regional peace and stability.”

These are words. And the case? How can Beijing respond to US actions at sea?

In conversation with Nezavisimaya Gazeta Konstantin Kokarev, first deputy director of the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, said that during Xi Jinping’s visit to the US, he and B.H. Obama agreed to turn points of divergence into points of cooperation. The Chinese media highly appreciated the results of this visit. Beijing is counting on the development of bilateral relations, the expert believes. Special emphasis is placed on the fact that an investment agreement will be signed, and it will then give impetus to the development of the economies of both countries.

On the other hand, let us add, the demonstration of the naval military force of the USA must be followed by something appropriate. Or, as they say now on the Internet and on the street, adequate. Words against warships are equivalent to defeat.

Will we witness the sea response of China? Have any Chinese warships been "without an invitation"?

        Such harsh Chinese land reclamators.

        That's interesting. Well, they sent ships to these islands, so what? Will they shoot Chinese construction equipment on the islands? Occupying? Unload their workers and rip them off?
        Horseradish with two. As construction progressed, it will continue to do so.

          Twice is when? For the first time when Hitler was sponsored along with small Britain, huh? And when it smelled of kerosene, they quickly clung to victory and declared themselves the winner. Just like in the spirit of the Anglo-Saxons. Well then, you know how it ended. For the second time, I agreed that the matter was done by the traitor Gorbachev and the drunkard Beni, but the times have changed.

How you take them apart brick by brick, not bonds, but debt obligations — if they are declared invalid this will mean one country's inability to repay debts (default) according to yours.

                  Yes, in any country there is enough of all the bastards ready to sell everything for money! But the truth is that not every country and not every nation is able to identify and punish such renegades. And the truth is that Russia even in the most difficult times found among its sons and daughters heroes capable of crushing the adversary! And the fact that she didn’t use victory to endlessly rob and oppress the defeated does not mean her weakness or impracticality, but spiritual and moral superiority over Western miscarriages capable of thinking only with dough criteria! The pig in the pigsty feels the same, but doesn’t look at the sky! Because the neck is so arranged. No, it looks once when it is gutted! So feel good further just do not grunt loudly.

              про них я к тому, что дpючили китайцев столетиями, причем нации в десятки, а то и в сотни раз меньшие по численности, чем ваши "братья на век".
              so the Chinese are far from dzhigits and only in Hong Kong cinema supermenyat.
              the same yapes are incomparably tougher and more aggressive and in opposition to them I would not put on the Chinese.

              And Russia does not need to bet on anyone, much less hope! Russia is a completely self-sufficient country. The less hope and expectation for someone, the less disappointment!

    The behavior of the Americans more and more resembles the behavior of Alkaponchik from the Kamyzyak clowns.

    Chinese history is an example of the most peaceful empire. They were captured and oppressed, they themselves never (well, with minor exceptions). And I am enraged by the Americans, who have spilled so much foreign blood over the past few decades, and they care about everything, now they are going to steer something from the coast of China. They definitely need to get into the territorial conflict from which they are separated by more than one thousand miles. Moreover, they give their allies a false assurance that if something happens they’re killing the Chinese with all their might, from which the Allies lose their sense of proportion in the negotiations, the main thing is that the conditions for a military conflict are created.

    The new American course, the journalist believes, is aimed at strengthening the position of the United States, according to which China’s territorial claims do not comply with the norms of international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    Как сразу запели... А Ливия-по международному праву? А присутствие в Сирии законно ли? А навязывание своей базы в Окинаве? Хорошо, что там губер волевой оказался! Токио послал куда подальше, так нет! В другой префектуре добавили. Подкупили за 5 лимонов... "Исключительные", вашу мамашу!

    Speaking the other day in Australia, Admiral Scott Swift, commander of the US Pacific Fleet, criticized China, not calling it directly, but saying that "some countries interpret the freedom of the seas as an opportunity for capture."

    И первая из этих "некоторых стран" - США... Ну надо же - иногда из их заплывших жиром мозгов даже прорываются мысли самокритики... Редко но все же... ))) Адмирал сам себя обделал !!!
    China, as the largest country in the Pacific region, should, can and will lay claim to its zone of influence in the Pacific ... And over time, these claims will only grow !!!
    And what about America? I think that Americans need to first deal with their debts, and then teach others how to live and how they work !!! Americans often call their country great, but now the greatest thing they have is their debts !!! )))

      The Chinese will rebel, pretend that they sent the ships to intercept and this will end their reaction. Something serious will not be, alas.

    And I’ll add - Americans still often compare themselves with Ancient Rome and obviously live by the ancient Roman rule "Пусть ненавидят - главное чтобы боялись...". But they forget the simple truth - "Прочный и долговечный мир не построишь на лжи, страхе и насилии !!!"... It has already been in history more than once - the fate of the Roman Empire is the clearest example of this ... Neither Jewish laws, nor mountains of gold and weapons, nor legions helped ... For weapons (even the most perfect ones) are not a panacea for all ill ... America is clearly following the same path, but already at the current stage of history !!!

        Dear ... Ancient Rome fell due to the fact that for centuries kept the peoples on its territory and its neighbors in fear. But over the years, the empire weakened and the day came when the neighbors realized that they were stronger than Rome. Something broke in the very mechanism of managing the empire, and in spite of its wealth and military power, it faded away until it completely disintegrated. If Rome remained strong, the Great Migration of Peoples would continue exactly to the borders of the Roman Empire ... After all, the sparsely populated lands around Rome were plenty. But the barbarians did not want to live in harsh conditions - they wanted to rob and live on everything ready - that's why they invaded the territory of Rome ...
        It is mono to draw an analogy with the modern USA - while they are strong they are afraid of them, but if they give them slack - their empire will be destroyed throughout the world ...

    Good luck to the Chinese in dumping the islands to about. Hokkaido, and then after a thorough ramming to the east coast of the United States.

    Pavel, we would like to see something serious. The beginning of a nuclear conflict? Of course, there will be no duck, as it should be limited to demonstrations of strength and health and nothing more.

    Something like this. hi

    It will be cool if American ships go near the islands, and China at this time will officially notify the United States and the media that the adjacent territory to the island is mined within 12 km, the Yankuts will probably build a brick island in the neighborhood :)))))))))) )))))))))))))))))

    Yes, there will be nothing again, another angry rhetoric, not even at the level of officials, but at the level of newspapers. The Americans will come in and swim, the Chinese will scold in return. And everyone will be satisfied. This happened already when China announced a no-fly zone over Senkaku, almost immediately the Americans flew there. So what? Did they get knocked down? They threatened 101 times only with a finger. And everyone has long forgotten about this. If China considers these waters to be its own, then it should shy away from Pndos, but this will not happen.

      I doubt there is Syria, new alliances, there is Russia, there are Koreans, I think the answer will be and will be like a Chinese flotilla with guns and the Air Force to make a meeting in line and a warning: we’ll shoot to kill, then we’ll see what color the Yanks feed
