China extends military exercises for a month

After US Congress Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, China began large-scale military exercises on August 4, which it was decided to extend until September 8. The goal of the PLA was to rehearse the sea and air blockade and establish control "over the large islands."


The Bohai Strait was closed for military maneuvers. According to sources, the Chinese army plans to work out in this territory the organization of defense against potential enemy submarines, as well as offensive actions.

In addition, "for daily firing" from August 6 to 15, the Yellow Sea was partially blocked.

Until August 7, the PRC army carried out weapons checks to destroy ground targets, as well as long-range air targets. According to the official Chinese media, the PLA will now conduct such exercises on a regular basis.

Earlier, The Telegraph newspaper wrote that China may attempt to land on Taiwan as early as next year. At the same time, Beijing, in all likelihood, will allocate about 48 hours for the entire operation so that Taipei cannot consolidate the forces of the West around itself and organize a military propaganda campaign against the actions of the People's Liberation Army of China.

    Apparently, amphibious tanks will also shake the edge of the sea along the beaches. And drag a ballistic missile around the city. Well, what can you do, such is the local tradition. Wave your fists after a fight. This is oh tradition. This is their right.

    Looking at this Asian resourcefulness, I thought: we, too, would not immediately announce the NMD, but charge many months of "exercises" with the use of military weapons on the territory of a neighboring state ... Well, as an option ...

    If this entire PLA has 2 million warriors, then they can conduct exercises there 24/365.
