Chinese army ordered to begin preparations for war at sea


The Chairman of the People’s Republic of China confirmed the long-running rumors about the possibility of a new major military conflict.

The Chinese leader has given unambiguous installations for the naval fleet countries. In his speech at a meeting of the Central Military Commission, he stated the need for "enhanced preparation of the fleet for a possible war," the La Stampa newspaper reported.

Analysts noted some ambiguity that could arise in the translation of the statement of the Chinese leader. In his phrase, instead of “war”, such interpretations as “armed struggle” or “military clash” are quite appropriate, but, as noted by the British television and radio company BBC (BBC), this basically does not change. Among possible reasons for such a harsh statement is a possible dissatisfaction with the actions of Barack Obama, who decided to deploy US Marines in Australia.

In a short time, the Pentagon’s reaction to Hu’s statements also arrived. According to the same La Stampa, George Little, a spokesman for the US military, said that the Chinese have every right to increase their power and implement their military plans. The only condition for which there are constant requests from the Americans, is transparency in Sino-US relations. With this statement, he tried to somewhat lower the meaning of the words of the Chinese leader.

At the moment, according to experts, the power of the American army significantly exceeds the Chinese. Despite the fact that the PRC army is the largest in the world, its main body is ground forces.

However, in recent years, Beijing’s sea ambitions have increased substantially. And significant sums are being invested in the development of the fleet at the moment. This is confirmed by the recent purchase of the former Soviet aircraft-carrying cruiser and its modernization for the modern needs of the naval military fleet. According to experts, China’s military ambitions have grown exponentially in recent years, which is of some concern.

However, according to analysts, China is preparing for a "war" not with America. Among the most probable countries, a military conflict with which may erupt in the near future, are Vietnam and the Philippines. These countries, like the United States, Brunei and Malaysia, have for a long time been challenging the right to several disputed territories in the South China Sea. On the islands for which they claim, there is a high probability of finding oil and gas. In this case, according to observers, it is the United States that has the greatest chances in this matter.

That is why the call for the “strengthening and modernization” of the PRC fleet was voiced before the annual meeting of diplomats of the PRC and the United States, during which negotiations are being held to resolve controversial issues about the impact in the South China Sea. As Vesti noted, the US military is confident that no aggression will be shown towards them by Hu Jintao.

“Rosbalt” reminds of the fact that on October 15 an agreement was signed between Vietnam and China, under which expansion of interaction between the military leadership of both countries is envisaged, in order to ease the tension in their current relations.

    China is increasing its power. Here you need to be vigilant. Beijing has Napoleonic plans, today the Philippines and tomorrow? Let's hope the Russian government sees and understands everything. While this is far from us, but who knows?

        After the war with Pindostana, they will suffer heavy losses, then they will have to recover for a long time, this is first! Secondly: they will not be able to wage two wars at the same time! Thirdly: if they wage two wars, then infantry and artillery and a part of aviation will go to us, and at sea, of course ... everything else!

          A war between the United States and China is very unlikely.

          One war will be enough. Question: who will this war be with?

          And if there is one war, what will happen then? The answer is all.

            As an option: the Americans are trying to push the foreheads of the Russian Federation and China. But it seems to me that the PRC themselves are not averse to gaining control over raw materials and the territory of their neighbor, they understand that the Russian Armed Forces are in a state of crisis, just long-standing friendly relations and the remnants of Soviet power stop them from decisive action. If China now dares to attack the United States (which is very unlikely), a large-scale war with the use of nuclear weapons can start in which other states may be involved, in fact, the third world war will begin, in which no one will win.

            Not only is it likely, it is a matter of time.

            China does not really need this war, but the States have nowhere to go ... firstly, strong China does not fit into the "new world order", and secondly, they cannot get out of the crisis without war.

            Therefore, the states are now strengthening their fleet in the Pacific. To start a war, it’s enough to provoke a conflict between China and any state ally in the region ... China has enough territorial disputes ... and then come to the aid of the allies.

        so it must be done if this applies to the personal enemy, but not to the enemy of the people. This will be a mistake.

      Have you seen the military budget of Japan?
      Do you know what is the most funded branch of the Navy?
      The Chinese before the Japanese military might still 50 years

        Have you watched the naval forces of China and Japan? The Chinese, unlike the Japanese SSBNs, have an aircraft carrier and is almost ready.

    China does not trust the States, just as the States do not trust China.
    It’s all different - for Pindostan, such news is not an ice.
    It will be difficult for them to predict the further development of events.
    And this is good.

    - PENDOS should be afraid. The Chinese army one winter in the Berengov Strait will invade Alaska. One fleet in that geography does not steer ... Remember Fallout 3. wink

      And then these same Chinese will come and take the plants for themselves.

      Believe me, the Russian Federation will be easier to exist with the United States than with China. Americans essentially sit across the ocean and blurt out something every ten years, and they have no particular interests in Asia. But in China in a completely different way ...

      They are Russians throwing their hats!

        Now wars are waged differently. A large number of infantry does not mean its good quality.
