On the fifth day of his term at the head of the White House, the new US president has activated almost all the war fronts: Russia, Iraq, Syria, China and North Korea. There remains Iran, with whom he continues to take the pinch since the Iranians anticipated his arrival by organizing more than 10 military exercises in the space of 20 days:
“These intertwined military exercises have sent a message to the United States and its acolytes both in terms of equipment, skills and above all the morale and capabilities that a military force needs. These exercises create deterrence and show that we can ensure not only the security of our country, but also the security of the region,” said military expert Qanadbashi. Like Iran, China, which the new head of the Pentagon is threatening, seems to have engaged in this anticipatory logic.
The first reaction of the administration of Democratic President Joe Biden, who officially began his term on January 20, to the territorial disputes between China, Japan and Taiwan was this: The new American Secretary of Defense warned Beijing officials, while announcing the new American administration’s commitment to NATO. On his second day in office, the new head of the Pentagon, Liyod Austin, met with Japanese Defense Minister Kishi Nobuo and warned Beijing about territorial disputes in the East China Sea.
According to a Pentagon spokesman, the Defense Secretary reiterated Washington’s commitment to NATO, stressing the alliance’s importance for peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region.
Talks on disputed islands between Japan and China and the announcement of Washington’s support for Tokyo were also part of the new U.S. Defense Secretary’s talks with his Japanese counterpart. The Diaoyu Islands, known as “Senkaku” in Japan, have been the bone of contention between China/Japan/Taiwan for many years. A Pentagon spokesman said: “The Defense Secretary said the Senkaku Islands are covered by Article 5 of the Japan-US Security Treaty and that Washington continues to oppose any [unilateral] efforts to change the situation in the East China Sea. »
And the Chinese counterattack? The Chinese authorities obviously protested the American interference but did not stop there. How did they do it?
This Sunday, Chinese news agencies reported that the U.S. Navy carrier strike group approaching the PRC’s borders was forced to stop moving because of the “anarchy” organized by the Chinese air force – 15 fighters armed with anti-ship missiles and 6 of the PRC H-6K Air Force strategic bombers, two of which carried hypersonic missiles, analogous to the Russian “Dagger” of the RCAF, flew over the AUG in the gravel with the aircraft carrier “Theodore Roosevelt”. A spectacle somewhat similar to what just happened in the Persian Gulf during the Iranian joint military exercises.
“An attempt by the U.S. military to demonstrate strength in China led the Defense Ministry of the People’s Republic of China to respond to the U.S. provocation with its military aircraft. It is known that six Chinese bombers flew dozens of kilometers from the carrier and accompanying warships, while 15 fighter jets flew a few hundred meters from the carrier’s strike group, forcing the carrier to stop moving because of the danger created of being destroyed. The U.S. has already reacted angrily to the actions of the PRC army, however, China has stressed that it will not allow any U.S. presence at its borders and is ready to act radically – the PRC navy has been ordered to open fire in response to the slightest provocation, which, of course, makes it possible to call the current actions of the PRC air force “the last Chinese warning.
The ending US Empire is clearly struggling: in the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean it is facing the Resistance; in the Black Sea, Russia is waiting for it with a firm foot; as for the China Sea, Xinping is ready to fight… Obama’s time is definitely over.
