    Not directly related to the US and irrelevant to military, but, well...

    New Zealand refuses to accuse China of genocide against Uighurs in break with Western allies

    The New Zealand parliament has expressed ‘grave concern’ about China’s alleged treatment of Uighur Muslims but, in a break from its Five Eyes spy network partners, the government has refused to call it a genocide.
    The divide between New Zealand and its Western partners was outlined during a parliamentary session on Wednesday, as politicians unanimously backed a motion expressing “grave concern” about allegations of human rights violations against Uighur Muslims.

    The declaration only managed to secure the support of MPs after Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s left-wing Labor Party ensured the motion contained no reference to claims of a genocidal act by Beijing against the minority group, claims that are accepted by some of New Zealand’s closest allies.

    Three members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States have directly claimed that China’s behavior towards Uighurs in Xinjiang province constitutes genocide but, so far, Australia and New Zealand have cautiously refused to go that far.

    China’s embassy in New Zealand has not commented on the motion passed by parliament but, previously, Beijing has strongly refuted claims of a genocide or even mistreatment of Uighurs.

    New Zealand has a history of not so wonderful behaviour.... we even had a chinaman tax to stop gold prospectors from China from bringing their families here... we are hardly in a position to tell other countries what they should be doing.

    I am sure if China wants our advice they will ask us... otherwise it is none of our business...

    I wonder what army the US will send to "encircle" China, hopefully it is not this army. LOL

    Having Japanese battleships to provide air defense would not have been that helpful. Japanese anti-air weapons on ships weren't that effective and they had no radar guidance on them.
    The US had radar guidance on anti air weapons on ships and they also had more advanced fire control on main guns than all but the largest Japanese ships.

    Getting the orders being sent out to the troops before the actual enemy troops receive them is a serious advantage in any conflict... even if they make sure their comms and HQs are secure would be an enormous advantage over the Japs.
