In the South China Sea, which runs from the south of Okinawa, Japan to the Philippine Sea, the large strategic assets of the United States, China and Japan are engaged in a fierce war of nerves.

Separately, China and Russia are conducting joint exercises in the East China Sea east of Taiwan, and the United States issued a preemptive warning saying that it will keep a close eye on it even during the Christmas holidays.

East Asian seas, including the South China Sea and the East China Sea, are getting as hot as the waters off Ukraine.

Of the six aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships of the US Navy currently in operation, four of them are located in East Asian waters.

International politics in East Asia is tense even during the year-end and New Year holidays.

Japanese Izumo sorties for Chinese Liaoning aircraft carrier training

The Liaoning Aircraft Carrier Group of the Chinese Navy passed through the western sea of ​​Jeju Island on the 15th and entered the southern sea of ​​Okinawa, Japan on the 16th.

The Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer Kirisame followed and closely watched.

Japan's Joint Chiefs of Staff releases the activities of the Liaoning Carrier Flyer Group with photos every 1-2 days.

It is known that the Liaoning Carrier Flyer Group has conducted more than 130 naval aircraft take-off and landing exercises so far.

The training areas are largely divided into 6 locations, and once you settle down, you have to take off and land more than 20 times.

Why do we do this kind of training between Okinawa and the Philippines?

Some foreign media analyzed that the training was aimed at the Spratly Islands, which are claimed by China, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Malaysia.

Japan, which had sent only destroyers and patrol aircraft to pursue the Liaoning carrier fleet, announced yesterday (23rd) that it dispatched an additional light carrier Izumo.

In December of last year, a hide-and-seek game between Liaoning and Izumo took place in the sea south of Okinawa.

It is estimated that even now, as in December of last year, Chinese and Japanese carriers are monitoring each other from a distance of several hundred meters.

Nimitz on the B-52, and a written warning

America cannot stand still.

On the 20th, two B-52 strategic bombers of the US Air Force conducted joint training with Korea and Japan one after another.

On the way back, it passed between Taiwan and the Philippine island of Luzon via the South China Sea, where the Chinese Liaoning aircraft carrier is training.

It is a flight that blatantly checks the Liaoning aircraft carrier's spratly-related training.

The US nuclear aircraft carrier Nimitz has also completed deployment in East Asia.

As a result, the US Navy's East Asian power has been fully strengthened with two carrier fleets, including Nimitz and Ronald Reagan, and two amphibious groups, including America and Makin Island.

On the 19th, Nimitz warmed up during joint training with B-52 strategic bombers and Japanese P-1 maritime patrol aircraft off the eastern sea of ​​Guam.

The U.S. Indo-Pacific Command issued a statement yesterday titled, "Keep a close eye on China's increased military activity."

It is a warning that even during the Christmas vacation, China's military activities in the South China and Philippine Seas, and China-Russia joint exercises in the East China Sea will be closely tracked and monitored.

It was announcing that it opposes military threats and pressure on the alliance by pinpointing the Liaoning Carrier Strike Group exercise and the Sino-Russian Maritime Combined Exercise currently underway in the eastern sea of ​​Taiwan.

Nimitz of the United States, Liaoning of China, and Izumo of Japan are pursuing a dangerous chase in the South China Sea.

If North Korea presses the heavy launch button again, South Korea and the United States and South Korea and the United States are poised to engage in large-scale drills in the East and West Seas in pairs, respectively.

During the year-end and New Year holidays, East Asian seas are tense.
