The attack on Guam and the bombing of Taiwan: in Japan, the targets of flights of Russian and Chinese aircraft were named


On December 22, 2020, bombers of the air forces of Russia and China made a joint flight, heading from the Sea of ​​Japan to the Tsushima Strait, then to the East China Sea and the Miyako Strait, after which they returned to their air bases. Against whom the joint actions of Moscow and Beijing can be directed and what are the possible targets of the combat aircraft of the Russian Federation and China, asked a question in Yahoo News Japan.


The flight was attended by Chinese bombers N-6 (two groups of two aircraft) and Russian Tu-95 (two aircraft). The Japanese edition expresses the opinion that the probable targets of the maneuvers could be practicing an attack on Guam, as well as the bombing of Taiwan. However, in this flight, according to a number of experts, the simulation of China's strikes on ground targets in Taiwan was not carried out due to the fact that such a conflict does not meet Russia's interests, and Moscow does not need to intervene in such a development of events.

As for the possibility of practicing air strikes on Guam, some analysts, given the range of missiles from the aircraft involved, call such attacks impossible from a course passing through the Miyako Strait with access to the Pacific Ocean. Overall, however, the Chinese Air Force is capable of hitting the island. In addition, Russia would refrain from flying with such potential targets, since this could exacerbate the already difficult relations between Moscow and Washington.

The most likely main purpose of the flight was to practice interfering with US intervention in the event of a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula or around Taiwan.

    Pure propaganda for raising patriotism, rallying anti-Chinese and anti-Russian forces, and most importantly - a reason for increasing military spending and Japan's creation of nuclear weapons.
    If the US B-52s imitate a nuclear strike on the Russian Federation from the Kharkov region, and the ships violate the territorial waters of the Russian Federation, then why does any appearance of the Russian aircraft and ships anywhere cause a commotion?
    An attack on Guam, Taiwan or any other US vassal would mean nuclear war.
    The military strategy of the Russian Federation and the PRC, in contrast to the US strategy, provides only a retaliatory nuclear strike.

    The eggs have already been cut off to the Japanese.
    And they have no illusion that if need be, the Americans will twist their necks just once. good

    In 1987, the United States imposed a 100 percent tax on Japanese chipmakers, accusing them of cartel conspiracy. This effectively closed their way to the American market. Restrictions on other Japanese manufactured goods followed later. Not long before that, the USA, France, Germany, Japan and Great Britain signed the Plaza agreement, according to which the US dollar was devalued against the Japanese yen. The combination of currency appreciation, US duties, and the ensuing real estate crisis nearly nullified Japan's GDP growth and caused the so-called lost decades., the period until the end of the 2000s, when the country's economy did not develop, having reached, however, impressive figures.

    PS The Japanese "economic miracle" was strangled exactly at the moment when it began to threaten the "national interests" of the United States.

    The only thing left for the descendants of the samurai was to read about the mythical raids on Taiwan and Guam.
