US and Chinese Forces Converge in S. China Sea as Chinese Navy Shadows USS Ronald Reagan before Speaker Pelosi Visit to Asia and Taiwan

Tensions are very high in the Indo-Pacific region as the USA shifts it’s attention from Ukraine to Taiwan. It’s all over in Ukraine but the crying so now the USA is attempting to flex it’s political and military muscle in the South China Sea. This could end very badly for the US side as China has had many years to prepare for this very scenario and wargames that the US has conducted shows the US side LOSING BADLY to Chinese forces. To see the story on US forces in those wargames CLICK HERE.

This is no joke, a huge war with China and the USA could begin this weekend. Prayed up and prepped up! Here is the story from warnews247, translated from Greek for your convenience.

The entire Asia and Indo-Pacific region is watching with bated breath the outcome of the bitter US-China brawl as Nancy Pelosi began her trip to allied countries in the region.

Until the last minute, Beijing tried to cancel Pelosi’s visit, even asking senators to intervene.

At the same time, all the weight falls on two moves by China: The Fleet Command announced exercises in the area without giving details while the “yanzhen yidai” order was given to the Chinese Army.

Below you will see exactly what this means and why it has upset Americans.

Some of the Chinese threats have targeted Pelosi herself. “If the US can’t contain it, let China contain it and punish it,” Hu Jin, a former editor of China’s state-run Global Times newspaper, tweeted. “The PLA Air Force will certainly make its visit an embarrassment to itself and the US,” he added.

On the official account of the 80th Army of the People’s Liberation Army of China, the message “Prepared for war” appeared . But the 80th Army is in Shandong Province, in Yellow, which means general combat readiness in China’s ED branches.

At the same time, the USS Ronald Reagan was about 185 kilometers (115 miles) from the Spratlys on Thursday, according to satellite images. Next to it were two Chinese warships, the Chinese destroyer Type 052D and a frigate Type 054A which were spotted 27 and 23 kilometers away.

American RC-135V monitors the situation in the Spratly Archipelago by providing images to the American aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan. The aircraft took off from Darwin Air Force Base in Australia. On the map below you can see its route.

War readiness exercises continue in Taiwan. The streets are empty and the citizens are in shelters. The president of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen the great war preparation.

N. Pelosi started…

The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, began her tour of Asian countries on Friday, inviting top lawmakers to join her.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is leading an official congressional delegation to Asia  , two sources said, although it is unclear whether the trip will include a stop in Taiwan.

One of the sources who reviewed the itinerary Thursday afternoon said a visit to Taiwan was listed as “trial.” The trip will include visits to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

In another development, Sen. Rick Larsen (D-Wash.) said Chinese officials pressured him to try to stop Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan. He said in an interview that a Chinese embassy official called his office and asked to be told to cancel the trip.

Meanwhile, on Monday, China’s consul general in San Francisco delivered a similar message to Larsen in person during a long-scheduled meeting in his Seattle district.

“He raised it, too, and made that request,” said Larsen, co-chairman of the bipartisan U.S.-China Working Group.

“I think it’s a gross miscalculation on the part of the Chinese to try to pressure any member of Congress into any travel anywhere.”

Pelosi has invited senior lawmakers to join her on the trip, including House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., and Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Mark Takano, D-Calif., who led a delegation of parliamentarians to Taiwan last year.

One of the sources said Pelosi had meetings in her office all week about the Asia trip and the Taiwan dispute. The source said discussions about a possible visit were extremely delicate given the possibility of military escalation.

“The Chinese could always miscalculate. The Cowboys could miscalculate ,” the source said. “And you have our own people who are going to do what they’re trained to do to ensure safety.”

Military mobilization by China

At the same time, China began military exercises in the South China Sea on Friday, according to a statement posted on the website of China’s Maritime Security Administration.

The agency’s brief statement noted that the exercises will be conducted in four areas of the South China Sea, off the coast of Guangdong and Hainan provinces.

The objectives of the exercises, the forces and means involved were not specified.

In addition, the maritime security administration said China plans to conduct gunnery drills in the South China Sea on August 2 and 3. The organization’s website noted that the exercise will be held in the west of the Leizhou Peninsula.

A sea area in the South China Sea about 89 kilometers from Macau will be closed to ships on Saturday for military exercises, according to a statement issued by China’s Maritime Security Administration. The Gulf of Tonkin in southwest Guangdong will also be a no-go zone on Tuesday and Wednesday while firing drills take place.

Song Zhongping, a former PLA instructor, said the US carrier strike group is likely to provide an escort for Pelosi if she continues the trip to Taiwan.

“At the same time, ahead of the possible visit, the US will increase surveillance of the activities of the People’s Liberation Army around Taiwan – meaning the US will deploy a large number of reconnaissance aircraft,” he added.

YPAM China: Action is the most powerful “language”

At the same time, China’s defense ministry issued a new, rare warning about Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. 

“Action is the most powerful language,” the Chinese Ministry of Defense said, underscoring Beijing’s sensitivity to the Taiwan issue.

In total, China has issued six warnings against US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s possible visit to the island of Taiwan in recent days.

The frequency of Chinese warnings and remarks used by various departments fully demonstrate China’s determination to take the necessary military measures to counter US provocations and safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, Chinese analysts said.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will not tolerate any “Taiwan independence” move or interference from outside forces and will resolutely stop such attempts, Wu Qian, a spokesman for the defense ministry, said at a press conference on Thursday.

The root cause of the turbulent Taiwan Strait is the collusion between the “Taiwan independence” forces and outside interventionist forces, Wu said, urging stakeholders to learn to adapt to the new reality (PLA operations near the Straits) , to reflect on their own actions and “most importantly, to pull back from the brink.”

Although Wu was responding to a question about PLA operations in the Taiwan Strait, analysts interpreted Wu’s words as another stern warning against the US government and some US politicians pushing for a visit by Pelosi to the island of Taiwan .

The U.S. should not underestimate the crisis and the potentially disastrous results it will bring to the Taiwan Straits if Pelosi ends up making the trip, Chinese experts said, adding:

“If the US does not back down but continues to challenge, the price they will be asked to pay will be beyond their means.”

Code “yanzhen yidai”

China’s foreign ministry used the phrase “yanzhen yidai” (We are fully prepared for any eventuality) which literally translates to “military forces are ready and waiting for the enemy” and the defense ministry said the PLA “will not sit idly by hands”  if Pelosi visits Taiwan.

Hu Xijin, a columnist for the Global Times, said China’s recent responses, including the two rare expressions, sent a message that Beijing is determined to thwart Pelosi’s plan to visit the island of Taiwan.

Hu cited some precedents where the two phrases were used:

Before the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea (1950-53), then-premier Zhou Enlai warned that China would not stand idly by if US troops crossed the 38th parallel.

In 1964, the Chinese government warned the US after the Gulf of Tonkin incident using the same phrase, urging the US to stop advancing on the then Democratic People’s Republic of Vietnam.

The phrase “yanzhen yidai”, which the foreign ministry translated as “full preparation for any eventuality”, suggests that the preparation is not a military mobilization or logistical preparation, but that all personnel are in place and all ammunition is ready for a potential conflict, according to Hu.

Lü Xiang, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times “since the status quo has already been broken by the US due to Pelosi’s visit, China will actively shape a new status quo.”

China will make the best use of the US’s mistakes through comprehensive measures, including military, looking to fully control the situation in the Taiwan Strait to better promote the reunification process in the future, the expert said.

WAR ALERT! Russia is Sending out its ENTIRE FLEET in the Pacific!

Some are saying that this is Russia either giving direct assistance to China in their invasion of Taiwan or it’s to keep the US from getting involved. Here is more from warnews247.

There is growing concern in the United States and allied countries as Russia mobilizes its entire Fleet in the Pacific.

The mobilization is characterized as “unusual” as for a simple exercise, as the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces said, it mobilizes all available ships.

It was formally announced that 40 warships, submarines and auxiliary boats will take part in the exercise! But the Pacific Fleet does not have such a large number of ships ready for war. Therefore, everything is mobilized for an “implementation of emergency plans”…

What worries the Americans is that the Russian mobilization may take place in consultation with China, either because an invasion of Taiwan is imminent or because Russia wants to prepare for any eventuality.

After all, if the Chinese operation starts, the Russian ships should not be in the Naval Station but in combat readiness. No one knows how China’s business will develop.

However, in recent days, strange military activities have been observed off the coast of China and USAF aircraft are flying.

All the war games that the Americans have run have shown that if China invades Taiwan, then there will be a regional conflict involving the US, Japan, etc.

Russia: Mobilizes 40 warships 

Russia pulls out of the Navy the entire Pacific Fleet with the participation of dozens of warships and aircraft.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, Moscow is launching a large exercise in the Pacific with at least 40 warships, submarines and additional auxiliary ships, while the exercise will involve at least 20 aircraft and helicopters.

The exercise will involve the ship Marshal Krylov, the frigate Marshal Shaposhnikov, other large anti-submarine ships, corvettes, small anti-submarine ships, minesweepers, missiles and support ships.

Some information states that the exercise has two phases. The first starts today and will last until June 10. This is an interdisciplinary exercise involving Fleet forces in a remote sea area under the leadership of Admiral Sergei Avakyants.

The maneuvers, scheduled for June 3-10, include ships searching for “virtual enemy submarines”, “working out air defense for regular groups of ships and conducting exercises against surface and air targets,” it said. ministry in a statement.

At the same time, the forces of the Pacific Fleet in cooperation with the forces of the Eastern Military District will carry out a series of exercises with real fire and rocket and artillery fire.

Earlier, the Northern Fleet had mobilized for the “Kumzha-2022” exercise. It is noted that a large military exercise is taking place in the province of Ivanovo northeast of Moscow

Approximately 1,000 troops maneuver using more than 100 vehicles, including Yars intercontinental ballistic missile launchers

The Yars intercontinental ballistic missiles are the new generation of missiles that were first tested in 2007 and put into service in 2010. The name Yars is an acronym for “Yadernaya Raketa Sderzhivaniya”, meaning “Nuclear Deterrence Missile”.

 PLA is preparing for the worst case scenario in the Taiwan Straits 

The People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) is preparing for the worst-case scenario in the Taiwan Straits. This was revealed by a Chinese military official who spoke on condition of anonymity to the Global Times.

According to him, Japan and the United States are considering the option of “military intervention in the issue of Taiwan.” In this regard, the PLA will carry out more exercises, taking into account the worst case scenario.

The report notes that the Chinese military recently conducted three large-scale exercises in the Taiwan region. According to another Global Times interlocutor, China is now busy preparing for a military conflict on the island .

So we are in the final stretch. Now they admit it publicly.

Involvement with Japan… China believes Tokyo will be involved

China believes that Japan will be involved in any Chinese attack on Taiwan. Last Thursday, China sent Coast Guard ships to the disputed Diaoyu Islands (their Japanese name is Senkaku) to conduct maritime patrols.

The Senkaku Islands (Chinese name for Diaoyu) are the subject of a territorial dispute between China and Japan. Japan claims to have occupied them since 1895, while Beijing recalls that in the Japanese maps of 1783 and 1785, Diaoyuidao (Senkaku) is described as Chinese territory.

After World War II, the islands were under US control and ceded to Japan in 1972.

Tokyo has believed that China and Taiwan have been claiming the islands since the 1970s, when it became clear that their marine area was rich in minerals. The territorial dispute escalated even more after the Japanese government bought three of the five islands from a privately owned Japanese owner in 2012, thus emphasizing their state status.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian recently said the Diaoyu Islands are an “integral part of China.”

Landing rehearsal in Taiwan

To confirm this information, in recent days, the Chinese Liberation Army (PLA) has intensified its exercises against Taiwan.

Recently, a large landing exercise took place with the participation of Type 071 class ships “Kunlun Shan”, Type 072A “Laotie Shan”, Type 073A “Mount Song”. Chinese amphibious forces simulated an amphibious attack and occupation of an island in the South China Sea.

As revealed by WarNews247 yesterday, Chinese bombers carried out night “raids” against Taiwan.

However, a US RC-135U flew over the area today to monitor China’s activities in the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea. The RC-135U flew up to 29 nautical miles off the coast of China.

2022/06/02 13:19

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan has imposed a ban on the sale of modern chips to Russia and Belarus in response to the invasion of Ukraine.

This week, Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) published a list of strategic high-tech goods that are barred from export to Russia and Belarus, reported DigiTimes. The ministry stated exports of these high-tech commodities are also banned from Belarus because it could help Russia bypass the sanctions.

Firms from these two countries are now banned from purchasing Taiwan-made microprocessors or microcircuits which have any of the following specifications: performance speeds of 5 gigaflops or above, clock frequency rates in excess of 25 MHz, an external interconnection with a data transfer rate of 2.5 MB/s or greater, more than 144 pins, or a basic propagation delay time of less than 0.4 nanoseconds.

These conditions essentially exclude Russia and Belarus from modern technology made in Taiwan. Tom’s Hardware pointed out that when Sony’s PlayStation 2 was released in 2000, its optimal performance was about 6.2 FP32 gigaflops, while the PlayStation 5, which was released 20 years later has 10.3 teraFlops.

In addition, Taiwan will no longer sell chip production equipment to these countries. This includes alignment and exposure equipment for wafer production, scanners, and scanning electron microscopes. Source

Satellites Catch China Preparing a Lightning Strike on US Navy Ships in Pacific and US Bases in Guam

This story has made the rounds before, about a year ago but then it was just a replica of an America aircraft carrier in the deserts of China. Now it appears that the Chinese have laid out many more such targets and are making their final preparations for war against the US and Taiwan. From Warnews 247.

The Pentagon and the Biden Administration are facing an unprecedented discovery. Military satellites spotted Chinese Army training in gruesome detail on long-range ballistic missiles (ASBMs) against US aircraft carriers, US bases in Japan-Guam, Taiwan and US Fleet

China has set up an entire network of model targets to prepare its Army for war with the United States. The details are creepy. The Chinese are training on precision blows at a rapid pace so as not to leave the possibility of a reaction in the US Navy.

Why the Americans released this information now is a question. They seem to have known this for a long time.

They set up an entire network with target models!

Satellite imagery shows China launching missile strikes against Taiwan, Guam and the US Navy.

According to recent satellite images, the Chinese military is improving its training on anti-aircraft missile attacks as it pursues targets that resemble aircraft carriers to smaller ships and naval bases.

Satellite images show that the Chinese have set up a training base in Xinjiang’s remote Taklamakan Desert. There they have created a network of models showing a ship moored at a naval base that resembles one in northeastern Taiwan and other targets in Guam!

They train intensively on American Goals!
The US Naval Institute (USNI) news website reported that new satellite images show China building large-scale targets along the desert, including destroyer models and piers.

One of the new targets – a model of a destroyer and a pier – was built in December, just 13 kilometers (eight miles) southeast of an elaborate aircraft carrier.

The target was destroyed by a test rocket in February, according to HI Sutton, author of the USNI article.

Another similar naval base, built in 2018, about 310 kilometers (190 miles) southwest of the aircraft carrier’s original layout, was found by Damien Symons, an independent defense analyst, Sutton added.

In 2017, the images appeared to show models of US bases in Japan, the military newspaper Stars and Stripes reported

NEW HYPERSONIC MISSILES WILL BE USED!

Sutton said the nature, location and strikes on the models suggest that the targets are intended for ballistic missile attacks.

China has developed at least two types of supersonic ballistic missiles, the DF-21D and DF-26.

The former is known as the “carrier-killer”, while the latter was named the “Guam Express” because of its range of up to 5,000 km (3,000 miles) – enough to reach the overseas territory of the United States, which hosts a large military base.

Lu Li-Shih, a former instructor at the Taiwan Naval Academy in Kaohsiung, said he spotted a device that closely resembles the Suao Naval Base in Yilan County in northeastern Taiwan.

Materials, layout and objectives
The nature, location, and strikes at these sites indicate that the targets are intended for ballistic missile test (ASBM).

China is known to develop many ASBM missiles. Two types, the DF-21D and DF-26, are fired from ground platforms. The H-6 bomber carries another missile, hitherto unknown. And there is now confirmation that the Renhai Class cruiser Type-055 can launch a smaller one, temporarily identified as the YJ-21.

Damien Symon said there were signs of advanced targeting.

“The order of the goals is very calculated,” he said . “Orientations, shapes and sizes are consistent with many goals. “There is nothing accidental in these models.”

The targets appear to be formed by placing metal sheets on the ground.

“This is different material from piers and buildings ,” adds Symon. “It may reflect heat or radar differently, it may also give us an indication of the complex systems and effort behind these experiments.”

The target of the naval base that was destroyed in February was similar to the one found by Symon. It’s almost a copy of the older goal, he said.

Targets in Taiwan – Who will hit

“I tried to compare [the layout] of US naval bases in Yokosuka and Sesabo [in Japan] and Subic Bay [in the Philippines], but the naval port of Suao is the one that bears the most similarity, ” Lu said. The target ship in the model is the Kidd class destroyer at the Taiwanese naval base.

“The model and exercise plans suggest that the Chinese Navy warships are simulating precision strikes to hit targets at both the Guam naval base and the military port of Suao with the YJ-21 anti-ship missile.”

Collin Koh, a researcher at the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang University of Technology in Singapore, said US aircraft carriers, amphibious teams and concentrations in Guam, the advanced military hub outside the first island, are target for the People’s Liberation Army missiles of China.

Suao is a strategic port designed to keep Taiwan’s access to maritime supply chains open in times of war, so Koh said the port would also be a high-priority target for Chinese missiles.

“The PLA will launch its wartime missile strike targeting Taiwan’s main facilities – including not only air bases, command and control centers, warehouses but also naval bases,” he said.

“Suao is located on the east coast of Taiwan, and has a certain degree of strategic depth, it is less vulnerable than Keelung which is another key hub of the Taiwan Fleet. “Keelung is located on the west coast just opposite the strait and therefore most exposed to PLA missile strikes.”

China Conducting “Bank Stress Test” just as a Massive Chinese Naval Fleet Barrels Towards US Naval Base

Never forget that China still has plans on taking back Taiwan, by force if necessary and it looks like that will happen soon as Taiwan continues to pursue relations with the US including receiving military aid. Of course China sees the US interference in Taiwan as provocation as they consider Taiwan a breakaway region but still part of mainland China.

With tension soaring and after watching the West apply sanctions to Russia over Ukraine, China has ordered it’s banking sector to stress test itself as it fully expects the West implement sanctions against it once the invasion begins. Here is more from Warnews 247.

Beijing is reportedly worried about sweeping Russian-style sanctions from the West and has ordered a comprehensive “stress test” to look into the effects of a similar scenario on the country’s economy.

According to a person with direct knowledge of the issue, an extensive exercise began around the end of February and the beginning of March, when the Western allies imposed unprecedented sanctions against Moscow.

Several key Chinese government agencies – from the banking sector to international trade – have been called upon to find solutions in the event that the West imposes the same embargo on China.

“Those involved in this exercise use as a basis the way in which Russia has been treated in order to determine China’s own political response in the event that the West treats it in the same way,” he added.

“This stress test includes a number of methodologies, including modeling.”

“Beijing has not clarified why it asked its huge bureaucracy to carry out such an exercise. “They said it was a ‘natural reaction’ from Beijing, given its close relationship with Moscow,” the source said.

Some bankers present, however, doubted whether Washington could ever afford to cut ties with China, given its position as the world’s second largest economy, huge dollar assets and close trade. with the USA.

“It’s difficult for the United States to impose huge sanctions on China.

“It’s like a mutually guaranteed catastrophe in a nuclear war.”

Then we have the LARGEST EVER Chinese Naval fleet heading directly towards a US Naval Base at Sasebo near Nagasaki Japan. More from wnd.com.

The largest Chinese aircraft carrier group reportedly ever assembled is conducting combat training near a U.S. naval base in Japan, according to multiple Chinese media sources on Tuesday.

China’s aircraft carrier “Liaoning,” as well as seven other vessels, are reportedly performing a naval expedition in close proximity to Nagasaki, Japan, and the U.S. Navy base at Sasebo, according to a Tuesday report from China’s Observer News translated by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier is also in the vicinity, according to the report.

The aircraft carrier group’s estimated collective “long-range precision strike capability” also reportedly surpassed that of any U.S. aircraft carrier formation, China’s NetEase News claimed, according to a translation.

In addition to the Liaoning aircraft carrier, the Chinese naval formation is reportedly composed of four destroyers, a guided missile frigate and a supply ship, according to the report from The Observer.

There is a lot going on all at once folks, remember to keep your eyes on Christ as we rapidly approach His Second Coming! He is the way, the truth and the life! No one gets to the Father but through Him! Seek Him today while you can still find Him!

Taiwanese Pilots Feel the Pressure as Groups of up to 30 Chinese Fighters Cross the Line in Taiwan Strait

China is really putting the pressure on Taiwan’s Air Force and air defenses as they continue to test Taiwan’s resolve on a daily basis! This is yet ANOTHER HOT SPOT for war around the world! One has to wonder when Taiwan or China pulls the trigger.

Happening Almost Daily

‘CONSTANTLY ON EDGE’

This month alone, China’s drills have included its jets crossing the mid-line of the sensitive Taiwan Strait and exercising near the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands in the South China Sea.

Beijing regards Taiwan as a wayward province and has never renounced the use of force to bring the democratic island under its control.

Taiwan’s air force has repeatedly scrambled to intercept Chinese jets. Though they have not flown over mainland Taiwan itself, the flights have ramped up pressure, both financial and physical, on Taiwan’s air force to ensure its aircraft are ready to go at any moment.

Visiting the Gangshan air base in southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung, Tsai received a detailed account of how the maintenance crew is making sure Taiwan’s F-16 and other fighters are operating at peak performance. Read the rest of this story HERE on Reuters.

I will keep my eyes on things as always. God bless,
