China has deployed several anti-aircraft missile systems on the challenged Woody Island in the South China Sea, reports RIA News Fox News post.


China launched anti-aircraft complexes on one of the disputed islands


"Two batteries with eight anti-aircraft launchers, as well as a radar system, were installed on Woody Island, which is one of the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea," the channel said, citing satellite images that were made available to the editorial board.

According to the newspaper, "rocket complexes were placed last week," "the authenticity of the images was confirmed by one of the American officials." The interviewee said that we are talking about long-range complexes - SAM HQ-9.

The agency recalls that the ownership of a number of islands in the South China Sea is disputed by China, Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam. Beijing believes that opponents are consciously seeking support from the United States in order to maintain tension in the region. At the same time, China considers the disputed islands to be its own, and does not recognize other opinions, no matter who they come from.

      This was expected from the Chinese, while the world's attention was focused on the "bad" Russia fighting against the Urkains and peaceful opposition in Syria, Russia "preparing" to launch a nuclear strike against the peace-loving Britain (bibisi) launching the "satellite" of the Korean threat ...... Quiet hibernating China is doing its business.

        So sell the S-300s to the Chinese, buy one batch and begin to clone packs at home. And then they are also sold to the Turks, dumping the Russian S-300.

          For that, they saved our violent heads from the flows of the next moans - they themselves sold them S-300. As those most moaning were those who had never traveled to Turkey and shouted that they would not go on.

      In a good way, we would need to support the PRC on the issue of the disputed Spratly Islands. In exchange for their official support for the Crimea.

                Do not flatter yourself about China. His territorial claims do not depend on the year of writing this or that article and they extend at least to the Ural Mountains. They are and will be in relation to the territory of Russia. At any opportunity (if Russia is weaker than China), you can see them with your own eyes if you remain still alive until that moment.

                I know what I'm writing about. He served on the border with China (KDPO).

                  Hypothetically, such claims can be made, but such seemingly strange behavior is easily explained.
                  The strategy of containing China by the Americans implies, first of all, the blockade of China from the sea, because they have no bases from Russia. If we take into account the strategic importance of shipping for the Chinese, we can say that this is almost a necessary measure, a reaction to the global American strategy.
                  It’s just that it didn’t work with other countries, it was probably worth negotiating with countries, otherwise the Americans would seize on this precedent.

        Alas. China is playing its game in the interests of its own state. Counting on China is a mistake. At the right time (for themselves), they will exchange anyone for profit. In other words, China is a dark horse. Ask those who live in the Far East and Primorye how the Chinese are developing our lands with the tacit consent of our leaders.

          Is this not correct from the point of view of the interests of the State. The GDP itself said there are interests of the State, they must be defended. And the allies, they are temporary, while interests coincide. And they’re mastering the land, so sorry, before that, you don’t understand whether you live in China, or in the Russian Federation. Now it’s less. On the other hand, count the Tajiks and other southerners (I do not in any way nationalize the issue), the territory is huge !!! You know, take the Vladivostok-Blagoveshchensk train even if you look, not a soul, forest, field is all uncultivated. It’s just that you need to solve all issues with a benefit for the State, and not for the sake of the mercantile interests of officials.

    The Anglo-Saxons have a head spinning. Previously, the head ached from the USSR. Now from Russia and China.
    If you start a war, Turkey (NATO) - Russia, then China will become the master in the Asia-Pacific region. A fight on two fronts
    already late, the 90s have passed, China and Russia have become noticeably more powerful. Therefore, the US does not know what to do with Syria. Today they say one thing, tomorrow something completely different. The "exceptional" USA is in a stupor, the strategy of "controlled chaos" is failing.

    Why not divide the islands according to the principle: who actually controls which ones, they get it. At the same time, China must definitely get China refilled, since they are actually artificially built by it (microscopic base). Territorial waters and zones - as a general principle.

    Other islands - not occupied by anyone - will be left in their original state for now.

    The air defense systems were deployed very timely, even if it was a simple demonstration. It is China that does business; he needs protection. And then, as it were, which has nothing to do with them, suddenly did not care about the rights of foreign countries. They love it - protect others rights. Without asking, they preoccupied themselves with the lack of democracy in the Arab world.
