China's Aircraft Carrier Just Led a Massive Show of Force in South China Sea
China’s Liaoning carrier group has appeared in the South China Sea off Hainan, satellite photos show, after it was said to pass through the Taiwan Strait, in what analysts are describing as an “unusually large display of the Chinese military’s growing naval might.”
That is according to Reuters, which obtained the photos showing at least 40 ships flanking the aircraft carrier.
Jeffrey Lewis, a security expert at the California-based based Middlebury Institute of Strategic Studies, said the images showed the first confirmation that the carrier was joining the drills.
"It's an incredible picture," he said. "That's the big news to me. Confirmation that, yes, the carrier participated in the exercise."
Lol Carrier group. That kind of coverage exactly the rogue re gie wants.
to Russia and an ally, hence Russia cannot directly confront India, who off late getting support from Uncle SAM
could have directed China to ensure INDIA is strategically crippled, since it''s an hindrance
Greed of USA MNCs has created a monster called China. Even today, USA policies are aimed at promoting USA interests primarily, to the grave detriments to other countries. Russia wants to protect its economic and strategic interests by treading a foreign policy that leans on China. But India is too big and potentially powerful nation to be ignored or antagonied by any super power including China. India alone can play a balancing role in international relationships due to its credible values base ..
YES, as is rightly narrated by Ashokji, it''s the US which created the monster China
USA under Trump wants India to spearhead fight against China in SCS.They think India can be cajoled into a suicide.But, India is now a smart negotiator.It will take measured and orchestrated steps in tune with level of comprehensive support from not only USA but also Japan,Australia and EU members. Small but strategically important east-asian nations will extend their full collaboration for obvious reasons
Third eye in space can capture with perfection will not only nail the lie also end up in exposing hidden intentions also.
The way the DRAGON IS EXPANDING AT DEVIL''S SPEED NO ONE CAN STOP. USA ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH THE EMPERORS OF CHINA RUSSIA CAN FINISH ANYTHING THAT COMES ACCROS
C J Dza
The world can not sustain a full scale war. such things don''t help
All of China''s neighbours and other countries need to get together because this rogue is on a land grabbing spree. If not stopped now, it may be too late
SIMPLY IMAGES. !!!CHINA IS THE PRODUCT OF THE MIGHTY MONGOL EMPEROR GENZISKHAN. RUTHLESS N BRUTAL. ONLY ALLIED SUPER POWERS CAN HOLD CHINA BEING TOGETHER.
Forty ships? Wow. Almost as many Ships as can be seen at any one of a half dozen US naval bases on any given day.
After looking at their carrier is it really true they have hyper-sonic weapons?
Lets see, they only have one.
is that a collier in the picture of their Minime carrier?
These ships are equipped with the famous Wong Wei global navigation system.
This thing is nothing but a fishing boat.
There are only two types of navel ships in the Pacific. US ships and Targets.
That rusty leaky old iron coffin is a show of force ???
used russian junk. lucky that china are better at keeping it afloat .the other one is still used by russia. its adrift most of the time.
THAT ISN'T A "MASSIVE SHOW OF FORCE" , THAT IS ONLY THE "BEGINNINGS OF A TINY NAVY" , JUST VISIT SAN DIEGO'S HARBOR, THERE YOU WILL SEE A "MASSIVE SHOW OF FORCE", IF THE FLEET IS IN.
Well done, China, very well done indeed. Keep up with the good work and "Make China Strong and Great Again"
40 whole ships? One of our bases should have that many by itself...
This is a show of force, our 1930's carriers were bigger and had twice as many aircraft. That was almost 90 years ago.
Last time the Chinese made a show of force, they had to cede Hong Kong to Britain for a hundred years. Hope they remember that lesson.
Do not sell China short. They have no need to be a world military policeman like the US is.
JOES QUANTUM GARAGE
HAHAHAHA THATS NOT A CARRIER ITS A TEEEENEE WENEEE AND THE CHINESE HAVE A LONG LEARNING CURVE ONCE THEY CAN STEAL THE PLANS AND BUILD A REAL SHIP
Wow what a feat and staying so close to their own shores.....All our fleets were shaking in their births........Not!!!!!!!!
The aircraft carrier is a Russian pile of junk
More like one second hand fake carrier surrounded by 39 chinese junk.
Dont worry folks, all Chinese war ships are made of cardboard and they will dissolve in salt water before they reach the USA shores.....
Answer me God, why do we have so many idiots in this great country?
a piece of Junk ! one Bomb, One missile. It sinks .
