China’s Aircraft Carrier – Liaoning now “Combat Capable”. Israel Sells Military Equipment to China – Obama is Pissed


“The Liaoning successfully performed several tests of the combat system today and organized for the first time comprehensive combat training,” the People’s Liberation Army navy said in a statement. “Through this operation, we tested the carrier’s combat capability and tried the performance of its propulsion and seaworthiness.”

….

Two missile destroyers, the Shenyang and Shijiazhuang, and two missile frigates, the Yantai and Weifang, participated in the mission. They escorted the carrier along the whole voyage from Qingdao to Sanya.

….

Several types of aircraft, combat ships and submarines were dispatched to cooperate with the carrier during the mission, which simulates real combat situations, according to Zhang.

….

“We have commanded the basic capability to operate and coordinate fighter jets and helicopters with the carrier,” Mei said. “We have accumulated much experience in logistic support for the J-15 fighters and improved a lot in terms of damage control and handling of equipment malfunctions.”

US Furious at Israel Equipment Transfer to China

A top Israeli defense official was forced to step down last week, according to Maariv Sunday, after the United States expressed fury at Israel’s decision to sell military equipment to China.

Meir Shalit, the Department Head for Defense Exports at the Defense Ministry, announced his resignation last week. While Shalit did not announce the reasons behind his resignation, the report claims that he voluntary resigned after US official investigations last month over the transfer revealed that the move took place with his approval. Shalit apologized to the US in a visit late last week.

The conflict, according to the daily, stems from different interpretations of the military weapon support contract between the US and Israel.

China’s String of Pearls Strategy: Extending their economic and military reach

Modernising the military is one of China’s four pillars in its modernisation drive which includes education, industry and infrastructure, military and agriculture.

China’s largest strategic concern – regime survival and domestic stability – directly links to its economy. To sustain its economic growth China has to be depending increasingly on its external supply of energy, raw materials and food. So the development of Sea Line of Communication or (SLOCs) is vitally important as more than 80% of China’s trade go through the sea. The majority of the energy comes from the country’s coal about 65 %, 30% by oil and remaining by gas, nuclear and hydroelectric power.

China will then need to commit more resources towards maintaining security of the shipping lanes in the Middle East. Below is the map of China’s SLOC and the oil shipping lanes from Hainan Island China till the Middle East.

This gave rise to the String of Pearls strategy. It is like pearls tied to a string and each pearl represents a country normally a port where China can get access to it. The string that attach to the pearls represents the Sea Lines of Communication (SLOCs). The String of Pearls will provide China with forward presence and military bases along the SLOCs from China to the Persian Gulf in the Middle East. A pearl normally comes with facilities like airstrips and naval bases.

    There are very good reasons why the sickness of Jewry has had to be removed from 109 territories throughout history. If you still believe the 9/11 Lie or even more laughable Holocaust Lies then you are one brainwashed idiot.
