US Sends B-52 Bombers Over East China Sea after Chinese send bombers overhead to Pacific Ocean The U.S. Air Force has sent two B-52 bombers over the East China Sea for "routine training" near Okinawa Prefecture, the military has said, the latest mission in the waterway that is home to the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands. The B-52 bomber mission was part of so-called continuous bomber presence operations by the U.S., which the military says "have been ongoing since March 2004" and "are consistent with international law and United States' long-standing and well-known freedom of navigation policies."

China’s claim to disputed islands’ airspace ‘is wrong’ South China Sea The Philippine president said on Tuesday that China’s claim to airspace above newly built islands and surrounding waters in the disputed South China Sea “is wrong” and that Beijing’s demands that others leave those areas could become a “flashpoint” for conflict. President Rodrigo Duterte’s remarks in a speech to an audience that included the American ambassador and other foreign guests were a rare public criticism of China, which he has refused to antagonise to nurture closer relations.

China vs US  The War in the South China Sea already Start
 
10:34
China vs US : The War in the South China Sea already Start Thus, China began its war for the South China Sea. China’s claims of South China Sea (SCS) ownership are illegal, but Beijing’s hyper-nationalistic officials increasingly encourage its forces to attack U.S. Navy ships operating lawfully there. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) appears to be calling for war—a war it may well get. But it is a war that will not stay confined to that body of water, and a war that could ultimately end with regime change in Beijing. One People’s Liberation Army (PLA) officer recently exhorted PLA Navy vessels to ram and sink U.S. Navy ships conducting freedom of navigation operations in the SCS. Another called for the sinking of two U.S. aircraft carriers and killing upward of 10,000 U.S. sailors to force the U.S. from these hotly contested waters. Source: http://bit.ly/2YTOTfT

US Is Getting Rid of Their Minesweepers

US Is Getting Rid of Their Minesweepers The U.S. Navy is getting ready to decommission its last few single-mission mine-countermeasures vessels, or MCMs. A late-March 2019 exercise off the Virginia coast points to a new way of deploying minehunting forces that the Navy hopes will work at as well as the old, purpose-made counter-mine ships have done. For the Virginia exercise, a British navy Bay-class auxiliary ship embarked U.S. Navy sailors, helicopters, boats and drones as part of a test of the so-called "vessel-of-opportunity" approach to mine warfare. Under that concept, American mine-hunting forces could deploy from any large U.S. or allied ship. They wouldn't need their own, dedicated minehunting vessels. As of early 2019, the U.S. Navy operated 11 Avenger-class minehunters that commissioned into service starting in the late 1980s. The 224-feet-long vessels carry sonar, radar and minesweeping gear.

Tension : US warships again challenge Beijing's claims in South China Sea

Tension : US warships again challenge Beijing's claims in South China Sea The United States sailed two warships close to disputed islands in the South China Sea on Monday (Sunday night, ET), a move that is bound to draw the ire of Beijing. The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation." The operation was carried out "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, told CNN. "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows," Doss said, adding "that is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe."

US vs China War in the South China Sea,The Accident That Spark
 
10:21
US vs China War in the South China Sea,The Accident That Spark The Black Sea bumping incident amounted to little as diplomatic fracases go. In part that’s because the setting differed markedly from the Western Pacific today. The U.S. task force cruised along mainland Soviet shores where no one disputed Moscow’s sovereignty. This was not contested turf like China’s South China islands—ground wrested from China’s neighbors or manufactured wholesale. That muted tempers. So did the slight damage to Yorktown. Nor was there any loss of life. There was little to fire a public outcry in either capital. What would happen should a U.S. Navy warship collide with a Chinese vessel while demonstrating on behalf of freedom of the sea? This hasn’t been a trivial or hypothetical question since at least April 2001, when a Chinese fighter jet hotdogging near a U.S. Navy EP-3 surveillance plane slammed into the American aircraft, kindling a diplomatic crisis between the Chinese Communist Party leadership and the newly installed administration of President George W. Bush. This aerial encounter furnished advance warning of what might happen on the surface below. Last weekend the question took on new urgency. On Sunday morning a People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) Type 052C destroyer cut across the bow of the destroyer USS Decatur as Decatur made a close pass by Gaven Reef in the South China Sea. Estimates vary, but it appears the PLAN ship passed somewhere within 45 feet and 45 yards of its American counterpart—compelling the Decatur bridge crew to maneuver to avoid collision. The imagery is striking. Whatever the actual range, terming this conduct “unsafe and unprofessional”—in the U.S. Pacific Command’s anodyne phrasing—understates how close the vessels came to disaster.

Taiwan Forcibly Expel China Planes After Recent Taiwan Strait Boundary Violation
 
10:39
Taiwan Forcibly Expel China Planes After Recent Taiwan Strait Boundary Violation Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing Wen has said her country’s air force will conduct a “forceful expulsion” of any Chinese military aircraft that cross the so-called “Median Line” in the Taiwan Strait, which serves as de facto boundary between it and the People’s Republic of China. This comes a day after two Chinese J-11 fighter jets violated the line, prompting Taiwanese jets to scramble in response and eliciting a particularly condemnation from Taipei. This initial incident also followed reports that the United States was preparing to sell advanced F-16 Viper fighter jets to Taiwan, where Beijing has long said it draws a “red line,” and a significant increase in American naval patrols through the Taiwan Strait. Tsai’s announcement first appeared in a post on her official Facebook page on April 1, 2019. The day before, the pair of Chinese J-11 fighter jets had crossed the median line and remained there for approximately 10 minutes, before returning to the other side. Chinese violations of the Median Line are not uncommon, but in the past, the aircraft have typically withdrawn quickly. Though Taiwan sent unspecified fighter jets out to meet the J-11s, it's unclear whether the two actually came within visual distance of each other. This follows months of increasingly aggressive Chinese aerial activity around Taiwan, which is clearly meant to demonstrate the capabilities of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) in any future cross-strait skirmish. In May 2018, PLAAF fighter jets and H-6 bombers had notably flown a route that effectively encircled the island, showing its ability to attack from virtually any direction, something that had not necessarily been the case in the past.

Philippine protests over for War in South China Sea

Philippine protests over for War in South China Sea The Philippine defence minister has protested against Chinese “encroachment” on the country’s maritime rights after the appearance of a large fleet of vessels in a disputed part of the South China Sea. Delfin Lorenzana told reporters at a meeting with his US counterpart in Washington on Monday that China’s increased presence in the disputed waterways was “very concerning”. “They have been building islands from reefs since, I think, 2011 [or] 2012,” Lorenzana said, according to a transcript released by US Department of Defence. “So it concerns us because they are encroaching on our EEZ [exclusive economic zone].” The Philippine foreign ministry said this week it has filed a diplomatic protest about the presence of more than 200 Chinese vessels near Thitu island, part of the disputed Spratly chain, between January and March this year. Thitu island, known as Zhongye in China and Pagasa in the Philippines, is the largest island held by Manila in the waters, which are also claimed by mainland China, Taiwan and Vietnam.

China shocked : U.S. Navy Bring Back the 'Big Guns' The BBGs would not be totally defenseless: the upgrade of the early 1980s saw four Phalanx CIWS guns installed. In their place we could install newer SeaRAM point defense missile launchers, or even defensive laser weapons in the hundred-kilowatt range, fed power from the nuclear reactors . Battleships captivate the imagination. Before they were displaced by aircraft carriers, battleships were symbols of great-power status. Some of the most iconic were the American Iowa class, the last battleships ever built by the United States. Powerful in appearance, yet with sleek lines filled in with haze gray, the Iowa class served in World War II and were unretired three more times to serve as the U.S. Navy’s big guns.

US Warship In South China Sea With Unprecedentedly Large Load of F-35Bs
 
10:16
US Warship In South China Sea With Unprecedentedly Large Load of F-35Bs The U.S. Navy’s first-in-class amphibious assault ship USS Wasp recently arrived in the Philippines for a major annual exercise carrying a U.S. Marine Corps contingent that includes at least 10 F-35B Joint Strike Fighters. This is a larger than average number of the combat jets than Wasp-class ships normally embark, but is a force structure that the Navy and Marines are looking to standardize. It’s also one that could help lay the groundwork for a future operating concept that could turn amphibious assault ships into light carriers, as necessary. Wasp entered the Philippine port of Subic Bay on Mar. 30, 2019, ahead of the beginning of Exercise Balikatan 2019. The ship is carrying Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Four (SPMAGTF 4), with the 4th Marine Regiment as the lead unit. The drills have occurred almost every year since 1991, with the exception of a hiatus between 1995 and 1999 due to a protracted dispute over the legal status of American troops deployed to the country during the exercise. “During Balikatan 2019, U.S. and Philippine forces will conduct amphibious operations, live-fire training, urban operations, aviation operations, and counterterrorism response,” according to an official Navy statement. “[Wasp and SPMAGTF 4] Participating in Balikatan demonstrates their ability to quickly forward deploy in support of an ally should a crisis or natural disaster occur.” This deployment is already notable since it is the first time F-35Bs, in any quantity, will take part in these drills. But it also appears to be one of the first times, if not the first time, a Marine task force has embarked aboard an amphibious assault ship with an air combat element, or ACE, in this particular F-35 heavy configuration.

US vs Philippines A Rocket That Will Make Waves in the South China Sea
 
10:32
US vs Philippines: A Rocket That Will Make Waves in the South China Sea China has been steadily increasing its military presence in the South China Sea in recent years. In 2012, China seized the Scarborough Shoal from the Philippines; it has also built seven artificial islands in the Spratly chain since 2013 and worked to prevent Vietnam and the Philippines from exploring for energy in areas it deems disputed. According to reports, China has installed anti-ship and surface-to-air missile systems on three artificial islands, including the Fiery Cross, Subi and Mischief reefs, and repeatedly rejected U.S. demands to remove the systems. With the United States pushing the Philippines to purchase a new rocket-launching system, a showdown in the shoals may be on the way. The waters of the South China Sea could soon be heating up once more. This week, the South China Morning Post reported that the United States and the Philippines discussed the placement of an upgraded High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) in the contested body of water to defend against China's militarization of its artificial islands in the area. The report, however, said Washington and Manila failed to reach a deal because the Philippines cannot afford the "expensive" HIMARS. Source: https://bit.ly/2CT5QNW

The B 21Bomber: Flying Much Sooner to South China Sea

The B-21 Bomber: Flying Much Sooner to South China Sea All of these emerging technical factors continue to inform a growing consensus regarding future war threats -- that the B-21 appears to quite possibly be the only platform that will be able to penetrate certain enemy weapons and advanced air defenses for decades to come. (Washington, D.C): The Air Force appears to have completed its Critical Design Review of the emerging B-21 bomber, inspiring confidence and optimism that a new-generation of stealth will be ready for war by the mid-2020s, and beyond. The apparent program progress does, at very least, raise the question as to whether to new bomber could be an important element of the service's "faster" acquisition strategy. Although acquisition and schedule specifics are not discussed regarding the B-21 program, the Air Force's 2018 Acquisition Annual Report does mention "bomber" in the context of its accelerated acquisition strategy. Senior Air Force officials have told Warrior Maven that the Critical Design Review has been underway, and in recent months Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told reporters the aircraft appears to be on track for the 2020s. While the B-21 is certainly not a program on which the Air Force would cut corners or "speed" up prematurely, the broader service emphasis upon a less-bureaucratic prototpying and development, it seems feasible, could impact the new stealth bomber.

China's Curious: US Military Presence on Taiwan? Enhanced security cooperation between Taiwan and the United States could easily expand as the pair work to balance against China's increased military presence in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea. On Nov. 5, Taiwanese Defense Minister Yen Teh-fa told legislators that his government would consider allowing the U.S. Navy access to Taiping Island if Washington requested it. The remark is by no means conclusive, though Yen emphasized that the United States could be granted access for humanitarian or regional security operations if they aligned with Taiwan's interests. Allowing the United States access to the island would further challenge the status quo at a time when the U.S. Navy is stepping up its presence in the Taiwan Strait. Over the past few months, U.S. warships have twice passed through the Taiwan Strait in a possible attempt to standardize patrols there or even pave the way for an aircraft carrier group to transit through. And in October, a U.S. Navy research ship docked in Taiwan's southern port city of Kaohsiung for refueling. Moreover, Taiwanese media has speculated that U.S. vessels will dock in Taiwan as part of naval exercises that are expected to occur in the region this month. However, U.S. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson declined to confirm or deny such a possibility. Source; https://goo.gl/MVqP6U

China Afraid: U.S. Navy New Battleships That's where the battleship of the future comes in: it would give the United States a defensive option for limited conflict. For example, a future battleship could respond to Chinese provocations by disabling Chinese seabed sensors or cutting Chinese undersea cables. It could survive being rammed by enemy ships—a favorite tactic of the Chinese and North Koreans. And if A2/AD did escalate into a shooting war, it could operate in the danger zone while U.S. offensive actions turned the tables. In World War II, the Japanese super-battleships Yamato and Musashi each mounted nine 18.1-inch guns, the largest naval guns ever deployed, but they never sank a single American ship. In a conflict decided by naval aviation, Yamato and Musashi were used mainly as flagships and troop transports. Despite their huge armaments, they were steel dinosaurs from an earlier strategic age.

South Korea angry: Trump called on Kim to hand over nuclear weapons On the day that their talks in Hanoi collapsed last month, US President Donald Trump handed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a piece of paper that included a blunt call for the transfer of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the United States, according to the document seen by Reuters. Trump gave Kim both Korean and English-language versions of the US position at Hanoi’s Metropole hotel on Feb. 28, according to a source familiar with the discussions, speaking on condition of anonymity. It was the first time that Trump himself had explicitly defined what he meant by denuclearization directly to Kim, the source said. A lunch between the two leaders was canceled the same day.

US the Plan To Crush North Korea In a War *Introducing US Operations Plan 5015 Although the new scheme reportedly focuses not on a full-blown war but on limited warfare, a preemptive strike can escalate—unnecessarily and disastrously—in what could go from being a small skirmish into a large-scale war,” complained an editorial in The Korea Times. North Korea’s unpredictable leader Kim Jong-un has many ways of making war upon his neighbors. He can unleash commandos, or cyberweapons, or threaten to utilize weapons of mass destruction unless the world complies with his wishes. Whether Kim Jong-un will live to see the results is another matter. He might be assassinated by U.S. and South Korean special forces, or buried in his bunker by a bunker-buster bomb. Other smart bombs might take out his command posts and nuclear facilities. The authoritarian state of North Korea could become a state without authority, its leadership decapitated by precisely targeted strikes. Or at least that seems to be America’s plan for fighting the next Korean War. And with North Korea conducting a new wave of ballistic missile tests, and U.S and South Korean forces practicing how to destroy North Korean nuclear sites, that plan is becoming more relevant.

US Navy's: Lots of Frigates That Can Do a Lot of Damage The U.S. Navy might tweak its force-structure goals in order to boost the number of frigates. That's what Vice Adm. Bill Merz, the deputy chief of naval operations, told a House of Representatives subcommittee on March 27, 2019. "We’re expecting a pretty hard look at the mix of ships this year," Merz said, according to USNI News. In rewriting the force-structure plan to include more small surface combatants, the Navy could signal its intention to acquire larger numbers of smaller ships at the expense of bigger ships. The idea would be to distribute U.S. naval power across a greater number of less-expensive vessels, reversing a decades-long trend toward larger, and fewer U.S. warships. "We know we are heavy on large surface combatants, and we’d like to adjust that to a more appropriate mix, especially with the lethality we’re seeing coming along with the frigate," Merz said.

Officials with Air Force Global Strike Command said that, during a routine inspection of at least one aircraft, airmen found a rigged "drogue chute" incorrectly installed in the ejection seat egress system, a problem that might affect the rest of the fleet. "The drogue chute corrects the seat before the parachute deploys out of the seat," said Capt. Earon Brown, a spokesman with Air Force Global Strike Command. The issue is "part of the egress system," or the way airmen exit the bomber in an emergency, Brown told Military.com on Thursday. The problem does not appear to be related to the issues that occurred last year, AFGSC said. "There are procedural issues of how [the drogue chute is] being put into place," Brown said.

South China Sea: UK and US naval manoeuvres threaten to INFLAME territorial tensions US and UK navy ships last week conducted joint manoeuvres in the South China Sea - a move which could threaten to escalate regional tensions amid fears of growing Chinese dominance. Both the UK and US insisted the drills were to emphasise their shared goal of peace and stability in the region. Commander of the USS McCampbell, Commander Allison Christy said: “Professional engagement with our British counterparts allows us the opportunity to build upon our existing strong relationships and learn from each other.” The news release that accompanied the manoeuvres stated it was a “personnel exchange of designed to address common maritime security priorities”.

US Navy warships just challenged China with a South China Sea sail-by operation, and Beijing is furious The US Navy sent two guided-missile destroyers to challenge China in the South China Sea, and Beijing is outraged. Two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers – the USS Spruance and the USS Preble – conducted a freedom-of-navigation operation on Monday, sailing within 12 nautical miles of Chinese outposts in the contested Spratly Islands. The purpose was “to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways,” as well as to show that the US “will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows,” Cmdr. Clay Doss, a US Navy 7th Fleet spokesman, told CNN. Source; https://goo.gl/eExv4o

Chinese Navy Sent to Confront USS Chancellorsville in the South China Sea China has been accused of sending a fleet of almost 100 ships to hamper Philippine construction work on a disputed island in the South China Sea. Beijing started sending vessels to Thitu, part of the Spratly chain, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) run by the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies. The fleet of ships, dispatched from the nearby Subi Reef, includes vessels from the navy and coastguard along with dozens of fishing boats. Read More ; https://bit.ly/2Bs5JbA

US sends its spy planes to Japanese to monitor F-35A crashed Pentagon has confirmed on Friday that high-altitude U-2 reconnaissance aircraft joins the search for F-35A fighter jet and missing Japanese pilot. According to the American military newspaper Stars and Stripes, the U.S. Air Force U-2 tactical reconnaissance plane has joined the search for Hosomi and the F-35A Lightning II fighter he was flying when it disappeared just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Previously several sources reported the appearance of a U.S. reconnaissance aircraft in the area south of the crash point of F-35. The U-2, commonly known as Dragon Lady, delivers critical imagery and signals intelligence to decision makers throughout all phases of conflict, including peacetime indications and warnings, low-intensity conflict, and large-scale hostilities. It is worth noting that U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula in an interview with the Business Insider, expressed his concerns about if Russia or China find crashed F-35A fighter jet first. “Bottom line is that it would not be good” for the future of US airpower if Japan or the US don’t quickly recover the jet, David Deptula told.

US Want to Sink China Navy As Soon as Possible While the Navy has continually contested Chinese control of the area amid the latter's push to build artificial island chains in the region, Marine Corps officials previously told USNI News that the Pentagon needed "integrated naval operations ... to take an island somewhere – natural or manmade." The Marine Corps is looking for a new long-range anti-ship missile "as fast as possible" amid a major transformation of the service's naval warfare concepts, Commandant Gen. Robert Neller told the U.S. Naval Institute last week. The Corps has steadily developed a new naval warfare doctrine centered around intensive missile fights conducted between constellations of small islands, and officials previously detailed several options for up-gunning amphibious combat vehicles and equipping flat-tops with new weapon systems to protect against incoming kinetic threats.

China vs Taiwan: A Return to ‘Massive Retaliation’ in the Taiwan Strait?
 
10:58
China vs Taiwan: A Return to ‘Massive Retaliation’ in the Taiwan Strait? In retrospect, the fact that President-elect Donald Trump took a call from Taiwan leader Tsai Ying-wen in December 2016 should have been a very clear signal that U.S.-China relations were about to go badly off the rails. It’s probably not a coincidence that “strange” military incidents, including China’s “drone snatch” in the South China Sea, and the flagrant brandishing of new mobile DF-41 ICBMs followed hard upon the now famous “telephone call.” Over the last two years, it is quite unfortunate that the Taiwan scenario has once again risen to prominence as the global situation most likely to trigger a nuclear apocalypse. And yet “thinking the unthinkable” is not the only reason to reflect on Taiwan these days. There is also the interesting historical fact that seventy years ago the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was founded and, not coincidentally, the “Taiwan issue” in U.S.-China relations was born. Actually, a stellar history was published in 2017 by Kevin Peraino, covering the crucial year of 1949 in exacting detail under the title, A Force So Swift: Mao, Truman, and the Birth of Modern China, 1949. That timely book is very useful and belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in China and Taiwan. Among the fascinating revelations from this book is the extent to which Madame Chiang (the Nationalist KMT Generalissimo’s wife) undertook “influence operations” in the United States. Peraino explains: “Madame Chiang … tried to restrict Acheson’s freedom of maneuver by tilting American public opinion in her own direction. She cabled the Generalissimo [from her temporary residence in New York City] and asked him to allocate $200,000 to help fund a public relations organization that would lobby important [American] journalists and legislators.” That would amount to millions in today’s dollars.

China shocked : Meet America's Secret Weapon To Kill China's 'Underwater' Nuclear Weapons Just last year, Captain James Fanell, a former director of intelligence and information operations for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, warned Congress about the need to track and deter Chinese nuclear-armed submarines. (Washington, D.C. ) The increasing global reach of Chinese nuclear-armed ballistic missile submarines, armed with JL-2 weapons reportedly able to hit parts of the US, continues to inspire an ongoing Navy effort to accelerate production of attack submarines, prepare long-dwell drones for deployment to the Pacific and continue acquisition of torpedo-armed sub-hunting planes such as the P-8/A Poseidon. Seeking to overcome the Pacific’s “tyranny of distance” dispersed geography, and track China’s expanding fleet of submarines, the Navy is working with Congress to produce as many as three Virginia-class submarines per year, moving beyond the current plan to build two. In the air, the Navy has been moving to place its new Triton sea drones in Guam and has recently awarded Boeing a $2.4 billion deal to produce 19 more P-8A Poseidon surveillance and attack planes.

Congressman Pushes Back on Navy's Plan to war South China Sea Two days after the president's 2020 budget proposal was released, an influential congressman is hitting back against the Navy's plan to move an aircraft carrier into retirement decades early. Rep. Rob Wittman, a Virginia Republican and ranking member of the House Armed Services seapower and projection forces subcommittee, called the decision to retire the Harry S. Truman "not a good thing." "They're looking at taking a carrier that's 20 years old and saying, 'We're no longer going to use that one,'" Wittman said at the annual McAleese Defense Programs Conference in Washington, D.C. "... If you get rid of Truman early, you're taking a very valuable asset out of Navy inventory." Source; https://goo.gl/M3Z3sY

US-China War Scenario: Would China's Military Attack a "Great Wall in Reverse"?
 
10:07
US-China War Scenario: Would China's Military Attack a "Great Wall in Reverse"? Suppose the United States and its allies erect a “Great Wall in reverse,” deploying anti-ship, anti-aircraft, and anti-submarine armaments on and around the islands constituting the first island chain. China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will not submit meekly while the allies curb its freedom of movement between its home waters and the Western Pacific. Instead, PLA soldiers, sailors, and aviators will try to puncture, outflank, or otherwise nullify the wall, regaining access to the wider world. They must—lest China forfeit the export and import trade that underwrites its “dream” of prosperity and national dignity, not to mention its capacity to project military might outside its immediate environs. But how? Peering through a glass darkly now may help the allies discern what the red team may do. In turn, foresight may help them get ahead in the inevitable next round of strategic competition, devising countermeasures to defeat PLA efforts to defeat the wall. And on and on the competition will go. Source; https://goo.gl/p2ZjWc

US B-2 Stealth Bomber Dropped Weapons on a China Embassy
 
10:26
US B-2 Stealth Bomber Dropped Weapons on a China Embassy Despite assurances that the attack was a mistake, a wave of anti-American protests spread across China, targeting the U.S. embassy in Beijing and consular facilities in other major cities. During NATO’s 1999 air war over Yugoslavia, the Atlantic alliance struck hundreds of targets over Serbia and Kosovo. Most were uncontroversial: air-defense sites, army headquarters and other military targets. The destruction of one target in particular, however, set off a wave of anti-Western—and anti-American in particular—protests half a world away. That target was the Chinese embassy in Belgrade. NATO’s bombing campaign began on March 24, 1999, after peace talks meant to stop the persecution of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo collapsed. Targets in both Yugoslavia and Kosovo were struck—first the Serb air defense network that opposed NATO planes, then a broader target array including Yugoslav army forces said to be directly involved in the persecution of Kosovars. The target list also included political-military targets inside the Yugoslav capital of Belgrade itself. Overall, twenty-eight thousand bombs and other munitions were exploded over Yugoslavia, a country the size of Ohio. William Cohen, then secretary of defense, characterized Allied Force as “the most precise application of airpower in history.” Some five hundred civilians died in the bombing, a remarkably low number for such a high number of munitions expended. In its own account of the campaign, NATO stresses that targets were “carefully selected” and that “massive effort was made to minimise the impact of the air campaign on the Serb civilian population.” Source: http://bit.ly/2v5mxkM Music: http://bit.ly/2VIqJ5U

China panic: US Sends The F-22 Raptor Is the World's Best Fighter in South China Sea

China panic: US Sends The F-22 Raptor Is the World's Best Fighter in South China Sea With Russia and China deploying advanced new fighters and surface-to-air missiles (SAM), the task of gaining and maintaining air superiority over an increasingly more lethal battlespace falls to a small and elite group of U.S. Air Force pilots flying the mighty Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. Conceived during the waning years of the Cold War, the stealthy high-flying supersonically cruising Raptor was designed to defeat the most fearsome weapons the Soviet Union could hurl at the United States and NATO during a third world war in Europe. However, with the end of the Cold War and subsequent 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union , the F-22 was left without a mission—or so it was thought. Indeed, the second Bush and Obama administrations cancelled the F-22 program in 2008 after only 195 aircraft—187 production planes—were ordered because they made the assumption that high-end state-on-state conflicts were a relic of the past. However, as it is becoming increasingly apparent, they were wrong. Source; https://goo.gl/GFTqTH

China in Big Depressed: US Preparing to Invade China US Air Force Sends B-2, F-35, F-22 in Pacific

China in Big Depressed: US Preparing to Invade China? US Air Force Sends B-2, F-35, F-22 in Pacific The US military recently conducted drills in the Pacific Ocean, rolling out "stealth" aircraft including the discontinued F-22s, the troubled F-35s and even the B-2 Spirit strategic bombers built near the end of the Cold War, Business Insider reported Friday. The drills were conducted with the assistance of the USS Wasp, a cross between an aircraft carrier and an amphibious assault vessel. Interestingly, the F-35s participated with their weapons stored externally. This method increases the jet's payload, as compared to internal storage, but also significantly increases plane's radar visibility. According to the plane's maker, Lockheed Martin, the external payload model switches the airplane into "beast mode," which is expected to be utilized on day three of a war, after enemy anti-air defenses have been suppressed.

Taiwan angry: Chinese War Fighters Fly Across the Taiwan Strait

Taiwan angry: Chinese War Fighters Fly Across the Taiwan Strait Two Chinese J-11 fighter jets crossed the cross-strait median, the de facto maritime border between China and Taiwan, the morning of March 31, Taiwanese officials said. When the Chinese fighters failed to change course after being hailed by the Taiwanese, they were met by Taiwanese interceptors. Even so, the Chinese fighter jets continued the incursion for about 10 minutes. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen labeled the incursion "reckless and provocative" and called for the "forceful expulsion" of Chinese warplanes should they cross the line again. The encounter marks one of the most serious incursions by People's Liberation Army Air Force fighter jets on the Taiwanese side of the maritime border this century. Chinese jets flew across the cross-strait median frequently until 1999, when both sides tacitly agreed to halt the practice. Rare subsequent Chinese crossings were largely deemed accidental.

US will the war in 5 the Indo-Pacific Region Obama talked of pivoting to Asia. Donald Trump made Asia pivot to America. In the last two years, Trump has done much to increase U.S. influence in the Indo-Pacific region. But much more needs doing. A fast start is well and good, the Indo-Pacific contest is a marathon, not a sprint. Washington needs to seriously think how the United States can sustain the regional strategy over the long term—well past 2020. The goal is simple. Beijing has to respect America as a formidable Asian power—and concede that the United States is not going anywhere. And what the United States does there must be part of an overall strategy to stabilize key regions of the world and ensure the freedom of the commons (air, sea, space and cyberspace) that benefits the United States and all nations.

Tensions: War US vs China could ignite over Taiwan Numerous former US officials have warned of a tense year ahead in relations across the Taiwan Strait under an increasingly anti-China US Congress and a whole-of-government approach advocating for closer US ties with the self-ruled island. They include Susan Thornton, a former top US diplomat for East Asian affairs, who is also concerned that President Donald Trump may lack sufficient understanding of the sensitivity of cross-strait relations, which could quickly become a flashpoint in US-China relations if not handled properly. Their alarming assessment follows the Trump administration’s tacit approval of Taipei’s request to buy more than 60 F-16V fighter jets – a move Beijing has described as “extremely dangerous” – and a flurry of legislative and other support from the US for the island in the past week. The activity in Washington comes hard on the heels of the first participation by a US coastguard vessel in a ‘freedom of navigation’ exercise conducted by the US in the Taiwan Strait.
