China may arrange Trump Caribbean Crisis 2.0


Apparently, Donald Trump is haunted by John F. Kennedy's “laurels”. Policy the current American president may well lead to a new version of the Caribbean crisis.


The "usefulness" of deploying medium and shorter range cruise missiles in the Asia-Pacific region was announced by the US Air Force commander in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. This step by Washington will create a threat to both China and the Russian Federation. What will Beijing and Moscow be forced to answer?

There is a strong impression that the corresponding political decision in the White House has already been taken. President Trump previously stated the need to “bring to life” Russia and China, and he is a man of action. However, the consequences could be very serious for the United States.

Among the potential bridgeheads for American nuclear missiles in the Asia-Pacific region are Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. The option with South Korea is one of the most realistic, since it allows you to kill three birds with one stone: Chinese, North Korean and Russian. From Seoul to Beijing, less than a thousand kilometers, to Vladivostok - just over 700 kilometers, to Pyongyang - less than 200 kilometers. By deploying nuclear weapons in the Republic of Korea, the Pentagon will be able to deliver a disarming strike against its main opponents in the region. The flight time will be a matter of minutes.

In addition, a missile attack from South Korea or Japan on China or the DPRK can be perceived as a nuclear threat to the Russian Far East. There will be critically little time for a decision.

Equally dangerous is the deployment of American INF troops in Taiwan. From this island, most of mainland China is calmly shot through. The Pentagon will be able to immediately destroy the military and civilian infrastructure of the PRC: nuclear power plants, oil storage facilities, bridges, railways, ports, industrial centers.

Why did the US decide to aggravate the situation right now?

The answer is simple: Washington has already missed the transformation of China into an economic giant that has become a real competitor to American hegemony. Now he is faced with the task of preventing the People's Republic of China from turning into a “heavyweight” militarily. China’s nuclear triad is still inferior to both Russian and American. He also does not have a developed network of foreign military bases, despite steps in this direction. China is surrounded by countries allied with the United States.

However, Beijing is unlikely to fly a white flag. He already has at his disposal medium-range missiles CJ-10K, copied from the Soviet X-55. China’s reciprocal steps are likely to also follow Soviet-era recipes. Involuntarily, the deployment of Chinese nuclear missiles in Cuba or Venezuela, which are heavily indebted to Beijing, suggests itself. It is likely that China and the Russian Federation will have to somehow coordinate their defensive measures. History repeats itself.

    Dreamer you, Mr. Marzhetsky. Although, of course, you can’t surpass Dill. What, in Cuba, they’re completely crazy now, sleeping and seeing someone’s rockets being put up? Under Castro, then they were barely able to accelerate, now all the more so for no money no one will deal with such nonsense there. Politics grunted, and for some economic preferences, it is not necessary to become a hostage to any government, especially to the population, on any side. It is also unrealistic in Venezuela, there are still a number of completely excluding factors.

      If someone else is investing quite a lot of money now in the economies of Cuba and Venezuela, it’s China and Russia, do you think that Cubans and Venezuelans will ask permission from the President of the United States if they can place anything on their territory or No, especially considering the American sanctions imposed on these countries, it’s just your fantasies are nonsense.

        You, it seems, either do not know how to read, or do not understand the meaning of what they read. There is no talk about any US permission; it is absolutely not the point. Do you seem to live memories and concepts of 60 years ago? Do you think that they are completely crazy to even go for such stupidity for any economic preferences? Cuba itself will never do this again. Why should they question the existence of their country?

      About Cuba: do not decide for the Cubans! They understand that they live at the teeth of a beast whose belly is not protected from unfriendly claws and the same teeth ... If, during the Caribbean crisis, they did not decide on a world kneading and return to the Stone Age, then today they will get the stones.

        - do you think any of the Cubans would like this ?! The overwhelming majority of the population is asleep and sees every opportunity to improve relations with the United States. And everyone understands that this will not add security to Cuba in this case. And China will not even stutter about it. But you have the right to remain in your illusions. I am interested in something else, where do those who wish "the whole world to dust" come from? Even with myself personally and it seems with great pleasure. Indeed, if something happens, someone will observe all this from the bunkers, and we will be watching from the balconies.

          I don’t want any trash at all! You just do not care about the objective understanding of reality. It is not our side that should be afraid, because they have long been so afraid of it that they don’t threaten with a finger. The Minutemen are already standing rusty, not everyone at the training launch flies where they need to ... They know, bastards, that there is no need to strain, no one will touch their satiety and comfort.

            I see that you have contradictions even between 2 neighboring sentences, then they should be afraid, then no one will touch them. You've seen enough "zombieTV". Let it be your way, probably so you are calmer and more pleasant.

              The main thing is to be sure that only your thought is correct, and you can give out with a balcony as a truth! Shibzdik on the street, of course, is afraid of touching the ambal, but it is not necessary that the ambal in his thoughts keeps touching him ... Read the doctrine of the Russian Federation! Only by retaliation and even by a non-nuclear attack will we erase all their warm toilets!

    You know, they wrote about the same when I said that Gazprom would pay fines and conclude an agreement for 5 years and 40 billion cubic meters. And now what? That's exactly right, and even worse.
    So do not waste words about "dreamers". Time will tell who is right. And pretty soon.

      What are you presenting to me? I had no doubt that court decisions would be implemented. But I consider categorically stupid even talk about the possible deployment of such missiles in Latin America.

    Please give your personal forecast: will there be American missiles in Europe and Asia?

      In Europe, I think not, while maintaining the current situation, and if something cool does not change there due to someone else’s actions. Really cool. In Asia, I don’t know, there is some kind of logic in this, China has deployed RSDs and is probably aiming it somewhere? But I do not think that the probability is greater, rather, there will be blackmail and attempts to influence China, which can also be somehow understood.
