China recently announced that the People’s Liberation Army has drawn up restricted areas in the South China Sea and held 38 days of military training. Some analysts believe that this is a warning issued by China to the United States and neighboring countries. Soon the United States and the Philippines will launch a large-scale “shoulder to shoulder” joint military exercise. Not only the US and the Philippines will take action, but Japan will also start to move around, wanting to use the Philippines as a “springboard” to intervene in the South China Sea.
The US-Philippines large-scale military exercise is imminent, and the live ammunition fire will be staged ahead of schedule
According to reports, the PLA is currently conducting 38-day military training in the South China Sea, and the entire cycle will last until the end of April this year. As the United States and the Philippines are about to conduct a large-scale “shoulder to shoulder” military exercise, the PLA’s drawing of a restricted area in the South China Sea is clearly a warning to the countries concerned.
Recently, the United States has made no secret of its ambition to intervene in the South China Sea, and the Philippines is also happy to find a strong helper. The two sides will conduct live-fire exercises in the US-Philippines joint military exercise in mid-April. For this reason, the United States and the Philippines have begun integration training. Prepare for the upcoming large-scale military exercises.
According to Russian media reports, the United States and the Philippines set up the target ship only 185 kilometers away from Huangyan Island in this advanced fusion training. Huangyan Island has a sensitive geographical location and is also known as the “throat of the South China Sea”. It is obviously provocative for Meifei to place the target ship here.
Japan is about to move, using a “springboard” to intervene in the South China Sea
The United States has to extend its tentacles to the Western Pacific. In this region, the United States has two loyal allies, Japan and South Korea. In addition, the Philippines has recently begun to turn to the United States. Relevant countries may lead to the destruction of the hard-won peace in the region.
In addition to the large-scale military exercises launched by the United States and the Philippines, Japan on the side is also ready to move. According to reports, in this year’s “Shoulder to Shoulder” joint military exercise, a team from Japan will participate as an “observer”. Some analysts pointed out that Japan should be wary of using the Philippines as a “springboard” to intervene in the South China Sea. In the past, Japan frequently used the East China Sea and Taiwan Strait issues as an issue. The government of this country has repeatedly exaggerated the threat of China, and used this as an excuse to attempt to break through the pacifist constitution and pave the way for the realization of the “restoration of militarism.”
Recently, Japan has taken the initiative to strengthen its relations with South Korea and increase its cooperation with the United States. At the same time, it has also approached the Philippines on the grounds of defense cooperation. All signs show that Japan is accelerating its actions to extend its tentacles to the South China Sea. This phenomenon is unavoidable.
