The South China Sea issue is the root cause of the relationship between China and the Philippines, and it is also an important factor that undermines the relationship between China and the United States. For a long time, the United States has played the role of “security officer” in the South China Sea. The purpose is naturally not to maintain peace in the South China Sea, but to take this opportunity to help the Philippines suppress China, prevent China from obtaining more resources, and then restrict China’s development. As China’s military strength continues to grow, Washington’s military intervention in the South China Sea will gradually increase. Recently, the U.S. military once again dispatched heavy troops to the South China Sea. It seems that Sino-U.S. relations will hardly be normalized.
Philippine ship intercepted by China
Some time ago, when Philippine ships were conducting sea operations, they were blocked by Chinese ships as they kept approaching Ren’ai Reef. Regrettably, the Philippine ship did not heed the Chinese warning, but continued to carry out its mission. The Chinese had no choice but to irradiate the ship with laser equipment as a warning.
Later, Western media began to smear China, releasing inappropriate remarks on the sovereignty of some South China Sea islands. The attitude of the Philippine government is also very firm. It seems that it has forgotten the cooperation agreement signed with China last month. However, the reason why the attitude of the Philippines has changed has a lot to do with the United States playing tricks behind the scenes. Subsequently, the actions of the United States also confirmed this conjecture.
The United States suddenly dispatched heavy troops to the South China Sea
According to US media reports, the US Navy’s aircraft carrier strike group and amphibious combat readiness group are conducting exercises in the South China Sea, which is the service’s latest effort to test how the formations work together with their respective platforms.
Ahead of the action, the U.S. government’s official media social pages have also been posting infographics of their composition and tagging each other in posts throughout the week to hint at last week’s joint drills.
According to US media reports, before this, the US Navy has been experimenting with how to integrate the amphibious assault ship equipped with the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter with the aircraft carrier. Last June, the U.S. aircraft carrier USS Tripoli took part in Exercise Valiant Shield along with the US aircraft carriers USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Ronald Reagan.
As early as last month, the U.S. Seventh Fleet announced that the Nimitz aircraft carrier strike group has been operating in the South China Sea, including conventional operations, including maritime strike training, flight operations and anti-submarine activities. In addition, U.S. Secretary of Defense Austin also made a special visit to the Philippines and strengthened bilateral military cooperation. It seems that the U.S. government has premeditated, and there will be a new “abyss” in Sino-U.S. relations.
