Media: Where is the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier that protects the platform?


2022-08-06: [Chinese Article Link]  Is this a demonstration against the Liberation Army (PLA) or a sign of weakness? Early in the morning, the old driver was confused by a news release from the White House. It was alleged that the Pentagon had ordered the Reagan to return to the sea near the island to “monitored the situation” following the firing of missiles by the Liberation Army (PLA) into the waters of eastern Taiwan. These days, the whereabouts of the Reagan have become the most topical topic for Taiwan — after all, it is now an important symbol of the willingness of the United States to intervene in the situation in the Taiwan Strait. The problem is that satellite photographs show that the ship is heading north off the eastern sea of Taiwan, and that its position on 4 days is close to Japan’s island. After the end of the PLA exercise, it now returns to the vicinity of Taiwan, whether it is a demonstration against the PLA or a sign of weakness. An analysis published by Taiwan’s “weekly magazine, CTWANT,” 5 also refers to this embarrassing topic. It is reported that many of Taiwan’s people and the “famous mouths” believe that the Reagan carrier can “stop the PLA from causing trouble in the vicinity of the Taiwan Sea,” but that the American carrier is simply ensuring the security of the Pelosi mission and does not mean to stop the PLA from imposing a “short-term and localized sea and air blockade” in the waters around Taiwan. According to reports, the Liberation Army (PLA) began conducting a three-day “ring-stage live-fire show” directly in six maritime areas around Taiwan to simulate a “sea and air blockade” situation in four days. Although the spokesman for the National Security Council of the White House of the United States said that the Pentagon had instructed the shipping carrier Reagan to “monitoring” the situation around the Taiwan Strait, according to information from China's think tank's “South China Sea Strategic Situation Awareness Plan” of 4 days, the Reagan had entered the main Japanese island northward. “The inability of the US to stop this roundabout also means that the US will not enter the first-island chain during the war.” Map of the Reagan between 30 July and 3 August According to the latest data from the South China Sea Strategic Situational Awareness Plan, after departure from the Philippines on 30 July, the Reagan entered the Philippines Sea, south-east of Taiwan, on 1 August, and continued its voyage in the north-east direction on 2 and 3 days of the Pelaussi Visitory, entering the main Japanese island in the morning of 4 days. The old driver said that the intention revealed by the Reagan trail was clear: it had left the South Sea for the eastern part of the Philippines to pick up the Pelosi plane, which was coming from Guam. Then, in a circle around the sea off the east side of Taiwan, moving in the north-east direction, on the one hand, avoiding the PLA exercise area — after all, the missiles that the PLA was supposed to test were directed against the American carrier that might interfere in the Taiwan Strait; on the other hand, as the above-mentioned analysis suggests, there was a deliberate return to Japan — which, since the start of its routine deployment at the sea in early May, has been patrolling at sea for almost three months and is close to the scheduled deployment date, and which should have been repaired at the mother port in Yokohama. When the Pentagon asked the Reagan to return to the sea near Taiwan, the old driver estimated that most of the American soldiers of the Reagan were also scolding the order. The first line of troops was probably the best to know how much American carriers still had “deterrence” around China. In his presentation of the Taiwan exercise, the Defense University professor Meng Xiangqing mentioned that the first deterrent exercise by the PLA carrier formation had led to nuclear submarine participation and the construction of a maritime stereo warfare system, and that for the first time, a firing range had been set east of the island, pushing back hundreds of kilometres from the American carrier Reagan, who was escorting Palosi. Indeed, even Taiwan's “former Chairman of the Security Council” and former “Deputy Commander of the Army”, Lieutenant-General Liu Xianbin, have said that the United States military's anti-intrusion/anti-regional denial strategy against the Liberation Army (PLA) in the First Island chain is no longer superior, because the PLA's air, sea and land missiles are spread throughout the First Island chain and have near impossible Hypersonic anti-ship missiles, and it is unlikely that any more American carriers will be able to move in, at least within 2,000 nautical miles of the mainland coast, that the United States will not be able to confront them and that it is unlikely that it will be able to protect Taiwan. No matter how long the Reagan will remain near Taiwan in the future or what little action it will do, its previous actions have proven to the outside world who is the “paper tiger”.
