    The US shenanigans with START need to carry a heavy price. NATzO allies (UK, France) will have to be part of any ICBM control treaty even if their strategic missiles are only IRBMs. This
    is merely a geographical accident which does not negate the need to have their nukes on a leash. The USSR was signing all sorts of treaties with the yanquis but left NATzO a free hand.
    No more charity for enemies.

    China needs to argue that its current missile stocks are absurdly low given its world power status. If the yanquis think that tearing up START will given them coercion on China, then they
    are really fucked in the head. China does not need to make treaties with Uncle Swine-shit.

    Any runaway arms race is exceptionally good for MAD. MAD is the only thing that has been restraining the yanquis from starting WWIII.

    China won't formally ally with any1, & therefore won't sign a treaty limiting her nukes by combining the total of hers with Russia's, or counting her own to be equal to other parties. Being a proverbial monkey watching the 2 tigers fight, she won't disclose the exact # of her nukes. That's also in keeping what Sun Tzu wrote: being weak, appear to be strong; being strong, appear to be weak.

    Imagine having to explain to all of thoes anti war groups and angry citizens why your silly plan got some of thier country's most important cities cratered.

    But that is the problem.... there are no anti war groups in the US any more... it just earns too much money...

    China has huge tunnel network to hide her BMs, warheads, BM trains, road mobile ICBMs, SSBNs, & works on an intercontinental strategic bomber. With such a full nuclear triad, disarming her with a 1st, 2nd & 3rd strikes is already impossible.

    Good, I am glad to hear that... but unfortunately that doesn't help if US politicians think they can do it it might be attempted.

    The fact that it will fail and get lots of people killed is little compensation... you can bet the US politicians and their families will be in safe places...

    "Given the growing degree of military technical cooperation and military-political coordination between Beijing and Moscow, we have to consider that eventually Russia and China could combine their nuclear weapons in a ‘tilt’ to coerce the United States, lets say in a military crisis over the future of democratic Taiwan," he said.

    Like Russia or the US should have any say in relations between China and Taiwan... Rolling Eyes what a dick.

    IMO only Japan & perhaps Taiwan will allow US IRB/CM on its territory.

    Australia would be keen as well...

    You could have a squadron of 6 of those in a carrier and have always 4 of them orbiting 24h at more than 500 km of the ship, 10 km altitude for a radar horizon of almost 500 km and not leaving gaps between them, something that today is not possible.

    But that is teh thing about the Russians.... they will be open to different solutions, and wont just say... this is the best I will only have this solution... a mix of drones and helicopters and fixed wing aircraft could be used... I mean imagine a float plane model of the new upgraded An-2 with fuselage mounted sideways looking antenna arrays... the stall speed of the plane is about 40km/h so it wouldn't even need to be a float plane.... sitting on the deck with the ship running at 20 knots and it would probably take off on its own... it wont be able to fly at enormous altitudes but it could be made to cruise for very long periods.

    There was an old design from WWII I think that had a biplane whose bottom wing folded up into the top wing when the undercarriage retracted... so it was a low speed biplane for takeoff and landing with low flight speeds, but a relatively lower drag monoplane during normal flight... that sort of clever design could make even quite a heavy aircraft able to operate from a carrier without cats.

    But keep in mind no current aircraft on the Kuznetsov needs cats to get airborne... so why are they talking about them?

    They have a few drones that can take off vertically and therefore would not need cats either....

    Personally I still think the best solution for AWACS is an airship...

    They just want a cheap excuse to ditch START too, China should make them regret by accepting, using the opportunity to raise their nuclear stock and besides stealing US' argument... not that US needs any rational one of course, but it would be fun to watch them scrambling to explain why they withdraw from START even when China accepted

    Even if China said yet it is not mentioned in the treaty so it could not be just extended because it would not actually include China.

    The only way it could go into effect would be if China either accepted the same terms as Russia and the US have.... which means they can have 1,500 warheads too, which the US wont approve or Russia and China share Russian totals which would mean Russia does not comply because it does but with all Chinese weapons added they don't.

    They have until about feb 2021... there is not even enough time for Russia to ratify it if nothing is changed.... they need to adapt their laws to allow for the extended treaty.

    It is dead already.

    Rewriting it to actually include China could not be done in 2 years anyway.

    Even if the US got everything it wanted it would still likely say the new Russian weapons developed since they withdrew from the ABM treaty are unacceptable too... like the un-limited range nuke cruise missile and Poseidon etc etc etc.

    Any runaway arms race is exceptionally good for MAD.

    Which is sensible. Cooperate with Russia against the US when it is in Chinas interests to do so, but there is no need for them to be joined at the hip.

    True, there is some crazy STOL technology and with new distributed electric motors blowing the wings it is even crazier...

    I remember discussing this with you as a pure speculation, since then I have learned that in fact there have been and there are a lot of instances where this has been evaluated and done.

    Yes, I was just kidding. Of course, the treaty is dead and they are just looking for an excuse to present themselves as the victims of Russian aggressiveness, but they keep the talks on as part of the farce and maybe in the hope that Russia will finally opt for unilateral disarmament, as a habit from a better past where soviet leaders secretly admiring the West would save the day for them. They must be in shock that today's Russians refuse to admit the intrinsic superiority of the Western Übermenschen...

    If they think they can produce more nukes than the nuclear technology of Russia + economic might of China combined then they are indeed mental. It is them that don't have enough plutonium pits and who lag badly behind Russia in nuclear technology.

    Like France & UK that refused to be included in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, China wants to maintain her independence by not joining any trilateral treaty. 
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermediate-Range_Nuclear_Forces_Treaty


    She can & may sign bilateral treaties with India, Japan, SK, USA & Russia covering certain BMs, etc. in the future, but only after she feels secure enough to negotiate from a position of strength. 
    At this point in time, she is still recovering from the "century of humiliation" & her geopolitical/strategic situation isn't yet secure enough.

    Which means any solution they do come up with will have to be very expensive... good.

    Like France & UK that refused to be included in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, China wants to maintain her independence by not joining any trilateral treaty.

    The Soviets had to sign something because US missiles in Europe were just too close and therefore very destabilising.

    In a sense it was good sense for the Soviets because being able to base their missiles in Europe meant for the US their smaller intermediate range ballistic and cruise missiles were effectively small light and cheap strategic missiles because of where they were placed... the short warning time was an added bonus... though the risk of the Soviets accidentally launching a full counter strike because they mistook a missile launch for a real attack was not ideal...

    For the Soviets it meant all the targets they wanted to hit in Europe and Asia and the Middle East would now need to be covered by much bigger much heavier ICBM missiles... so it did make WWIII more expensive for both sides.

    Now however, they can make all sorts of scramjet powered missiles much cheaper than any rocket and faster than most solid rockets of that size for the job...

    (Note the 6 ton Kh-32 moves at about mach 4.5-5 in level flight at 40km altitude... the Zircon is probably going to be one third that weight, but with greater range and double the speed...)

    For China it does not make sense to limit its nuclear weapons capacity because that would require it to reveal to the US its current inventory of nuclear weapons and weapon making plants from which the US will be able to work out future production potential and all sorts of other details they will want solid information on before they attack and invade...

    If they only flew to within 90km of China then they were flying in international airspace... why did they think they needed to pretend to be anyone else?

    BTW KAL007 was shot down after flying over several very sensitive Soviet military areas... I wonder if they still would have shot it down if the US observed international law like other countries do and did not have its spy planes pretend to be civilian airliners?

    in order not to spook Chinese into changing their routines.
    The US is strengthening ties with Taiwan, much to the chagrin of mainland China which sees the island nation as part of its territory. The Trump administration is expected to approve another major weapons sale to Taiwan valued at $600 million. The sale will reportedly include shipments of MQ-9B Reaper drones and anti-ship missiles. Washington has long provided arms to the island, but those sales have increased under the Trump administration. A high-profile United States official is also in Taiwan for the weekend. The presence of Keith Krach, the Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment, marks the second major US visit in two months.

    KAL007 was predated by another Korean passenger jet flying over USSR territory that was forced to land. One never hears about that case.

    The KAL007 incident itself was a frame job. There was an actual US spy plane doing a complex flight pattern to con Russian air defenses into
    thinking it was KAL007. The ploy worked and the Soviet pilot who shot down KAL007 though he was shooting down the US spy plane.
    The fact that this was a frame job is evidenced by the total radio silence of KAL007 even as it was overflying Soviet territory. This was not
    some minor overflight violation, it was a persistent violation covering around 1000 km and over critical locations as you note.

    Anyone claiming that the KAL007 shootdown was a crime by the USSR is full of shit. It was a joint crime by South Korea and the USA. The
    former for letting one of its civilian jets with passengers be put at risk for a US psyop and the latter for staging the psyop. This isn't some
    moronic hockey game where you get a penalty for retaliating. The USSR was fully within its rights to bring down KAL007.

    By contrast, the US shootdown of the Iranian flight 655 was a total crime. It was committed by a US warship violating Iranian waters
    and engaged in an act of military aggression against Iran. Iran did not stage any psyop to fool the yanqui butchers that flight 655 was
    a military aircraft. And the yanquis awarded the butchers who shot down flight 655 with medals.

    South Korean airlines liked to hire ex military pilots and often they would cut into Soviet airspace to save time and fuel.

    When challanged by Soviet air defence these ex military pilots would often try to run or pretend they were not contacted by Soviet air defence.

    Brutal way to risk human lives that the west pretends to care about.

    I remember the KAL007 shoot down... even if you believe the western story that the Korean plane accidentally strayed deep into Soviet airspace the west had spy planes in the air at the time and were tracking it from various radar stations in Japan and South Korea, but also military platforms were listening in for all that valuable radio traffic and radar signals, detected by ship and sub and air and even satellite platforms... but strangely none of those platforms felt the need to warn the aircraft it was an enormous distance off course and was at risk of being intercepted... they just didn't care.

    It was a planned operation from te start, & the plane departure from Anchorage was delayed by ~40 min. to synchronize it with spy sats. Read KAL007 shoot down.
    The China Conundrum: Deterrence as Dominance
    China has also suffered a setback when, in the first week of September, the Thais made it clear that they are not interested in pursuing a Chinese pitched plan to build a canal across the Isthmus of Kra in Thailand, which is the narrowest part of the Malay Peninsula.That canal would have made it possible for Chinese vessels to bypass the Strait of Malacca, but the Thais did not want a foreign power controlling and running such a strategic facility that would conceivably physically divide the Muslim-dominated south from the rest of the country.

    On the canal across the Isthmus of Kra , if others invest in it, China won't be able to control it, & thailand may be pressured to close it to PLAN/Chinse merchant ships. Since, occupying Indochina isn't worth it, more roads to & ports in Myanmar will need to be built to bypass that choke point.

    in order not to spook Chinese into changing their routines.

    The whole point of flying an aircraft full of electronics and directing all your land and space based instruments on the target country is to listen for radio communication and radar frequencies and locations and track enemy aircraft and SAM site locations etc etc... to time how long it takes for them to get planes to you, to work out the shape and extent of their radar coverage... how low can you fly, how high...

    If they look like a civilian aircraft then they might send one plane to get it to correct its course and remain in international airspace.

    With military targets it would be more aircraft with a lot more tracking and more realistic for the attacker to measure the response for their planning of future attacks...

    With the Soviets they used to take ex bomber aircraft and fill them full of electronics and flying the near the border with the SU to get responses. Well pretty soon the Soviets realised what they were doing and stopped doing more than the bare minimum, so the americans started flying closer and closer to Soviet airspace and would occasionally fly into it where it bulged out or clipped a corner, but eventually even that stopped working so they flew directly at the border like they were going in and then turn away at the last second... and when that stopped working they didn't turn away...

    I seem to remember they lost about 140 odd men in hundreds of separate incidents doing this sort of shit...

    Since the Chinese BRI goes via Kazakhstan, with branches in Azerbaijan & Ukraine, & RF, destabilizing C. Asia & all of those is the way to derail it. Nazarbayev conducted power transfer to prevent turmoil like in Kirgizia, Armenia, Ukraine & Belarus.

    China is a plague in the pacific region. Like locusts tehy destroy where they go. A big argument for New Caledonai to stay with France, was the fact that China would destroy the island wizhout french protection.

    At the moment french navy and coastguard hunts chinese vessels out of new caledonian and french polynesian waters.

    We build a strong alliance with our australian partners and also in the UK and sucesfully block further chinese provocations.

    Australia doesn't give a fuck about France. They are nothing without Chinese money and they already have US (5 eyes group) as a protection.

    China is interested by its new silk roads toward EU. South east pacific is of no interest for them. They are Australia's biggest client.

    UK is a dead country with no weight. 51st US state at best. It's military is part of US military.

    New Caledonia has nothing China would fight for. Even if they take it France/Australia/UK have no chance to win against China without US.

    The ching chongs react quite allergic to Plutonium. France happens to be a nuclear power, which keeps the ching chongs away.

    New Caledonia has the largest nickel and cobalt reserves in the world. Its a gigantic island, the size of a small continent with huge forests and rich fishing grounds.

    China has no respect for nature and would destroy evrything there. Australia seeks more and more distance to China, which is a positive move.

    France, Australia and India forged an alliance to counter chinese agressions in the region. Japan also joined.

    In Europe China also gets culled. Chinese companies are banned from participating in network construction.

    Since the Lega Nord was kicked out of government in Italy, Rome too joined an anti chinese rhetoric.

    Its high time China is culled back, the China-Virus is a good reason as well.

    What happens when India improves her relations with China- to whom the French will peddle their weapons? Australia is sitting on 2 chairs & soon will need to chose on which 1 it will settle down.
    France would benefit more by joining the BRI rather than sticking with Anglo-Saxons & their "5 eyes".

    That's the current statics- there's no telling it will be so in 5 years. China's economy is already 2nd to the US'. France is the biggest continental nation in W. Europe, while China is in E. Asia. Yet France is under US control while China isn't. France got rich from her colonies & possessions while China is getting rich by developing her own local economy, transportation & trade. 
    And now she's getting ready for war over Taiwan. The RN will deploy her CV near China soon; will France follow suit with her CVN?
