U.S. Navy chief does not rule out sending aircraft carrier through Taiwan Strait

The U.S. Navy has not ruled out sending an aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait, despite military technology advances by China that pose a greater threat to U.S. warships than ever before, the chief of U.S. naval operations said on Friday.

Washington sent ships through the strategic waterway three times last year as it makes more frequent transits of the strait that separates Taiwan from the Chinese mainland, but it has not dispatched a carrier in more than 10 years.

During that time, China has modernized its forces with missiles designed to strike enemy ships.

“We don’t really see any kind of limitation on whatever type of ship could pass through those waters,” Admiral John Richardson told reporters in the Japanese capital, when asked if more advanced Chinese weapons posed too big a risk.

“We see the Taiwan Strait as another (stretch of) international waters, so that’s why we do the transits.”

Aircraft carriers, typically equipped with about 80 aircraft and crews of about 5,000, are key to the U.S. military’s ability to project power globally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Admiral Richardson has not received the following memo from China:

China will Taiwan at any cost, if the US "intervenes"

It appears that the US military has been "tasked" with treating the Chinese military as though they were picadors in a bull-fighting competition; I would politely like to request, please, that the US military perhaps re-think this strategy.

We are completely unready for a fight against China and/or Russia for the following reasons:

1. The US troop strength is not enough to counter the Chinese or Russian military; and I am almost at a point of feeling as though a draft of some kind will have to be reinstated to cure this.

2. The US military does not, at this moment in time, have the weaponry necessary for a positive outcome with a war against either Russia or China.

3. The US military does not have the manufacturing sector capable of supporting it, other than handing the work to an off-shore company.

4. With a $20 trillion dollar deficit (that we know of), the US military doesn't have the money to insure a positive outcome to a war with either China, and/or Russia.

I also wish that this government could think of ways to engage, rather than enrage, our current geopolitical trading partners, who are, ironically, also our military's biggest concerns.
