Arrow Aircraft Carrier Move Shows Bidenís Real China Policy

Aircraft Carrier Move Shows Bidenís Real China Policy
By: Sam Baker - WSJ-Opinion News 06-11-21

Your editorial ďThe Missing Aircraft CarrierĒ (May 27) presumes that the USS Ronald Reagan is truly going to the Middle East to cover the withdrawal from Afghanistan. An alternative view is that the carrier is being deployed to stabilize the Middle East so that President Biden has cover to do a deal with Iran. Of course, this redeployment leaves Taiwan exposed. The question is whether the U.S. Navy will deploy a carrier from San Diego to cover the Western Pacific in the USS Ronald Reaganís absence. Whether the Navy covers its Western Pacific flank will tell us everything we need to know about President Bidenís China policy.

Personal note: It seems the game's afoot and foreplay and strategy are always needed to remind those who would do something rash - that will suffer a quick response for any foolish actions. Mind games are always in play - as deterrence to another's actions.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
