Aircraft carriers of the United States and China go to the coast of Taiwan

After China sent its aircraft-carrying cruiser to the shores of Taiwan, the United States took a similar step. The American aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is currently four hundred miles from Taiwan.

The Chinese aircraft carrier Shandong is now in the same area, the departure of which was announced the day before by the maritime safety department of the eastern province of China's Fujian. As explained in the department, the reason for the start of patrols of the central and northern parts of the Taiwan Strait of the Chinese Navy was the meeting of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy with the head of the administration of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen.

It is noteworthy that the Taiwanese authorities do not link the approach of an American aircraft carrier to the coast of the island with the start of patrols of the Taiwan Strait by a Chinese ship.

We can't tell if he came here for this, but he ended up in this place and under these circumstances, so now everything is interconnected.

Taiwanese Defense Minister Qiu Guozheng said.

He stressed that the Chinese Navy's aircraft carrier Shandong is currently located about XNUMX nautical miles east of Taiwan's southernmost point. At the same time, aircraft takeoffs from its deck have not yet been recorded.

Recall that China has repeatedly expressed concern about the frequent meetings of Taiwanese officials with American officials.

    In the entire history, China has not won a single war, I doubt that even now it can.

      China has fought more wars than any other country in existence today. If all of them were lost, then we simply did not know about a country like China

    Several considerations. The island of Taiwan is about 200 km away from mainland China, covered with mountains up to 60%, and only 40% of the land is inhabited, mainly the coast from the mainland. The population is only up to 24 million. Penghu Islands are located in the strait 50 km from Taiwan, they have several airfields. So first the PLA can occupy these small islands and wait until the backlash subsides. The reason for the landing can be found. But the first step has been taken. After the second step, it will already go easier, having a base with unsinkable aircraft carriers (three islands with airfields), this is about sinking US aircraft carriers .. Step-by-step actions are more preferable and do not shock like landing on Taiwan right away.
