from the bbc...

Why is the US Navy practising for war with China?


By Rupert Wingfield-Hayes BBC News, USS George Washington off Guam

The US prefers to talk about engaging with China, but it is clear its navy is now also practising for a potential conflict, reports the BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes.

You don't get invited out on a US nuclear aircraft carrier all that often, and after writing this I might not get invited back for a while.

.............

But as I stand on the deck filming my report on how "the US is practising for war with China", I can see my host from the Navy public affairs office wincing.

You get used to hearing the PR rhetoric: the US Navy "is not practising for war with any specific country". But the US Navy has not assembled two whole carrier battle groups and 200 aircraft off the coast of Guam for a jolly, either. This is about practising what the Pentagon now calls "Air Sea Battle".

It is a concept first put forward in 2009, and it is specifically designed to counter the rising threat from China.

RE: from the BBC...

Hi, Bollocks.

BBC is a "strange" organization, sometimes... It's more complicated than this one-sided story. They should consider not only the past, that military PLANS always existed, and that not only the U.S. had/has all sorts of plans using its military around the world, and the same plans had China, the USSR/Russia, the British, but they should consider all the present news, too... While this news from BBC is interesting, I was writing on one Czech website in July, 2014, that the U.S. and China will have, for the first time, their own military training with Australian forces in OCTOBER, 2014. :-))) See here --

China to join military exercise with US, Australia (July 17, 2014)

https://news.yahoo.com/china-join-military-exercise-us-australia-181010452.html;_ylt=A0SO8yd5pj5UQjUAl8lXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEzb25pbnVkBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2dxMQR2dGlkA1ZJUDQ0M18x

Washington (AFP) - China's military will take part in an infantry exercise for the first time with Australian and US forces in October, the Pentagon said on Thursday. The joint exercise will take place in northern Australia and marks another step forward in efforts by Washington and Canberra to bolster relations with China's People's Liberation Army, officials said.

"This is a small-scale exercise," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steven Warren told reporter.

The drill would involve "less than a 100 total personnel," including one or two squads of US Marines, Warren said.

"The goal of the exercise is learn how to survive and thrive in austere conditions," he said.

China broke new ground last month by taking part in a major US-led naval exercise in the Pacific. The Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) event is still underway, and Australia is also among the countries participating.
