The US and China are on a tightrope as the Pentagon ordered the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier and its Battle Group to head to the Taiwan Strait in preparation for Nancy Pelosi’s visit.
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued two announcements and one the Ministry of Defense of the country emphasizing that the “Army will face the American challenge”!
At the same time, the information about the readiness of China’s fighter squadrons is fully confirmed
The situation is critical as neither country seems to be backing down.
The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan is in a hurry
The US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its strike group, including a destroyer and a cruiser, departed Singapore heading northeast towards the South China Sea.
China and the United States are beefing up their military presence around the Taiwan Strait as tensions rise over a possible visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the island.
The US military has not disclosed its final destination, but the route will bring the aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait if it continues in the same direction.
US officials told The Associated Press that if her visit takes place, the military will increase the movement of forces and assets in the Indo-Pacific region.
They also said fighter jets, ships, surveillance vehicles and other aircraft are likely to be used to provide overlapping rings of protection for Pelosi’s flight and arrival in Taiwan.
China Strengthens Its Forces – Fighter Replacements
Recent satellite images have shown how the PLA is also building up its forces in the region, including expanding an air base in Fujian, which is across the Taiwan Strait.
The images show that Longtian Air Base, from which fighter jets can reach Taipei in seven minutes, is packed with Flanker-series fighters – either Russian-made Su-27s or Chinese variants of the J-11 or J- 16 series – and special drones made from old J-6 aircraft.
In the event of a conflict with Taiwan, hundreds of unmanned J-6s could be used as decoys to knock out the air defense system, launch electronic warfare or act as specially modified missiles.
China’s Ministry of Defense: We are fully prepared – We will not stand idly by
After China’s foreign ministry stressed that China had issued stern warnings to US officials, the country’s defense ministry took over.
“The PLA will not stand idly by if Pelosi visits the island of Taiwan,” warns the Chinese Ministry of Defense, stressing that the country’s Army is “fully prepared” for all scenarios.
The announcement states that:
“China is fully prepared for any eventuality regarding US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s planned trip to Taiwan. If the US insists, the military will not stand idly by and strong measures will be taken to prevent any outside interference and separatist attempts at ‘Taiwan independence’.”
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
