Japan’s Jiji Press is reporting that a US Navy strike group led by the super carrier USS Carl Vinson is engaged in a joint exercise with Japan’s Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF) in the South China Sea.
The drill in the South China Sea where China has been building artificial islands and military facilities, follows the Vinson’s visit to Da Nang, Vietnam earlier this month in what analysts say was a veiled warning to Beijing.
The Vinson strike group, which includes two Aegis guided-missile destroyers, has been conducting the exercise since Sunday with the Japanese helicopter carrier Ise to “enhance maritime interoperability between longstanding allies,” according to a US Navy statement
The US Navy also said its joint operations with the MSDF include antisubmarine and air defense training, noting that the Ise will also carry out a replenishment-at-sea operation with the Vinson.
Another awesome opportunity for Chinese SIGNIT vessels to gather valuable data about the US navy. More ammunition for anti-US factions in China to advocate full-spectrum military parity (and then some) with America, Japan & NATO. More reasons for more Chinese defense installations and new artificial islands in the SCS.
Who will benefit from that? China, the MIC, and Israel.
I doubt that big traders in the stock market (or forex / commodities markets) will give a damn about the drill.
Hey no face Chinese troll; how are you getting past that VPN blocker your nation put on your countrymen?
What are Allies For? Let it be.
it’s absolutely true. It’s just a stupid waste of money and childish. Just engage in one fight with China then will see the real result. China wouldn’t give a damn about these drills but will put in a few words to indirectly invite them for more live shows, well, America has a lot of money anyway.
Tony Yeow Foo Yen …Then China will be bombed back to stone age.
This human genocide country are trying to test and provoke another country. why can’t they just exercise around their house?
