Washington does not hide the anti-Chinese orientation of naval exercises off the coast of the Philippines with the participation of two aircraft carriers of the US Navy

40
The grouping of ships of the US Navy began exercises "to work out the actions in the contested territorial waters." We are talking about military maneuvers near the coast of the Philippines. Aircraft carriers involved in the exercise USS John C. Stennis и USS Ronald Reagan. The US Department of Defense said that the maneuvers are held in connection with "putting pressure on Manila from Beijing in the South China Sea." At the same time, the Americans did not dare to conduct exercises in the South China Sea itself, starting maneuvers in the waters of the Philippine Sea.




Informational portal DefenseNews cites a statement by Rear Admiral Mark Hitchcock, a representative of the US Navy Command, who commented on the concentration of forces off the coast of the Philippines:
No other fleet can concentrate so much combat power in one sea (...) This is really impressive.


We are talking about the involvement in the course of naval maneuvers over 12 thousands of troops, six aircraft, the two aircraft carriers mentioned, several auxiliary ships.

The commander of one of the American groups involved in the maneuvers, John Alexander, said that the main purpose of the exercises is related to the training of combat interaction in a "disputed environment." The disputed environment, the American admirals, apparently, called the archipelagoes in the South China Sea, claimed by several states of the region, including China and the Philippines. At the same time, statements about “Beijing’s pressure on Manila” indicate who large-scale maneuvers are directed against. Their main focus is anti-Chinese.

The Defense Ministry of the Philippines said it highly appreciated "the fulfillment by the United States of promises to protect the Philippine statehood."

    American tactics are the tactics of hyenas. When they’re not afraid, they run away. Otherwise, the flock will simply eat. It’s better to act harshly with America than talk. In vital issues both in China and Russia, wrinkling is simply dangerous.

      The Defense Ministry of the Philippines said it highly appreciated "the fulfillment by the United States of promises to protect the Philippine statehood."
      The correct answer would be: The Philippine Ministry of Defense highly appreciates the occupation of the Philippines, henceforth we commit ourselves to doubly supply tribute to the maintenance of American bases and these wunderwafers.

                Shiz! 16.19. Who should be afraid of whom? So far, Americans are all afraid and shaking. Russia scares them, China scares. Who are they not to be afraid of? Papuans? It’s also good for us to conduct exercises along the coast of Cuba with China. According to legend, about saving the population of Cuba and Florida from an environmental disaster. After all, the climate is changing and anything can happen. Pour oil, flood the tsunami, dust the volcano with ash ... And now we will work with the Chinese interaction and assistance to the population. After all, America also likes to talk about its help to the victims. So let's see how they will respond to our peaceful teachings. hi

              Alex Ragon! 16.15. If the Americans block the sea routes to China, then China will be pressed. While China buys a lot of raw materials. Therefore, there is probably a question for whom it will hurt from the confrontation. But China has a lot of US papers. The situation is generally not simple. Smart people are also sitting in China, and there are probably options for all events.

                I gave you +, but there is one serious clarification: it will be difficult for the staff for China to block the delivery routes, since China already now has any, but Aircraft Carriers. And then everything will only get worse for the mattress - the northern delivery route and the "Silk Road". Accordingly, in the far sea zone, the mattress still holds a confident leadership in atomic AUG, but in the coastal waters of China and India, the superiority of the mattress has been lost forever, thanks to the presence of aircraft carrier compounds in these countries yes

                US Army bombers dropped the MK-62 QuickStrike aviation bottom non-contact sea mines just 70 kilometers from the Russian Navy base in Baltiysk. The heavy B-52s flew, escorted by a dozen cover fighters, as if it were not exercises, but a real combat operation.

    "The American admirals seem to be calling the archipelagos in the South China Sea a controversial environment, which are claimed by several states in the region, including China and the Philippines."

    They are claimed by many, but not by Americans. But, in my opinion, no one cares more than Americans about who they get. yes

        This is already clear, that's why I say let them frighten the Chinese more often. In any scenario of the military conflict, 2 versus 1 do not want to stay in the place of this one. China has long needed "Khubilai's domain", our Far East, and sooner or later they will lay claim to it, and who knows who then our allies will be besides tiny Mongolia, maybe the same "mattress". Politics is a delicate matter.

          Dr. Stein! 17.29. I just can’t imagine how this disc will detect a moving target and homing at it. But the disc is likely to quickly find and send her greetings, or maybe a few. But I can imagine the warm coast of the United States where a dozen missiles suddenly take off from under the ocean. And these missiles fly to distant Syria, where they drop over the target, open a parachute and deliver humanitarian aid. And then the squeal of amers about our deceit. And we so modestly declare our peaceful missiles capable of delivering humanitarian aid anywhere in the world, at any time, in any weather. The military is so trained, the industrialists will check the product, those in need will get canned food, and the warlike will understand. This scenario seems more plausible to me. hi

    The more targets in one place, the easier it is to hit them with a rocket. And how many underwater mines, even from the Second World War, are floating there. China cannot make allies. The ambitions of a thousand-year-old power get in the way. But that's their problem. While the "eagle" and the "dragon" are fighting, we can grunt the honey.

    We must pay tribute to the Yankees. In the Second World, flattened Japan. What was the fucking flagship of the Japanese? Who gouged ours near Tsushima. In my opinion, American pilots sent him to the bottom in 1944 or 1945. In my opinion, these pilots should have been awarded the orders of Russia (or the USSR). So the United States aircraft carriers will never hurt a China or two under a barrel.

      Grave cross! 15.39. Who is the Japanese in the 45th flattened? Those who for four years created the appearance of war? Why did these winners ask the USSR to open a second front? Because they helped the Union by opening a second front, and then we repaid our debt by opening a second front in Japan ??? If they are so strong and helped finish off the Germans (and without them we would certainly have fought for a very long time!), Why ask for an exhausted Union? What do we owe to amers?

        Do not take laurels from the Americans. Japan's imperial fleet was one of the strongest in the world. Americans sank:
        Battleships - 12pcs
        Aircraft carriers - 21pcs.
        Heavy cruisers - 18pcs
        As well as a bunch of cruisers, destroyers, submarines, tens of thousands of Japanese aircraft destroyed. And millions of soldiers of the imperial army. So it is not necessary to belittle the achievements of the allies. The Americans fought Japan without fools. And including thanks to them, the Japs did not hammer in our Far East in 1942-43.

    If they are told that the Chinese counterpart of Pershing has long been prepared for such daredevils, will they have the courage to do so? Will the USA start a war with China over two sunken aircraft carriers? It is unlikely that the Pentagon and the US State Department will commit suicide. Moreover, China can let the U.S. economy sink in. You have to think of a peaceful American military before waving your fists. If the Chinese have time to land on the coast of America, they can go from Alaska to Panama without stopping, the enemy will have nothing to put up against them.

    There has long been an article here that if the Americans did not put Russia before the 2018-20 year,
    then switch to China. So apparently they began to set the stage just in case.
    So it will not work for China, like that monkey, to sit out.
    As an option for China, pull transport corridors through our ports on the Far East.
    Now one of them is being built from Zarubino. This will not depend on the passage to the South China Sea.
