Around the war in the Straits, the United States is accelerating its layout? Think tank scholar: The United States is plotting to open a military base on the northernmost island of the Philippines, which can blockade the Bass Strait in wartime and severely defeat our fleet.
A domestic think tank scholar (Dana) published an article saying that many actions and clues show that the United States is planning to open a military base in the northern Philippines, especially the Bataan Islands and Babuyan Islands in Kajayan Province in the northern Philippines located in the Bass Strait, so that the US military can use this key position to carry out military operations in the event of an incident in the strait, block the strait with a distributed killing chain method, threaten our naval and air defense forces entering and leaving the Bass Strait, and at the same time can jump islands to assist the other side of the shore to fight.
Recently, US Vice President Harris visited the Philippines in addition to participating in APEC - he also deliberately landed in the Palawan Islands; The scholar believes that in addition to trying to continue to hype the South China Sea issue, another low-key task is to discuss with the Philippines the establishment of new military bases.
Indeed, the United States and the Philippines have recently been negotiating for five new U.S. military bases in the Philippines; In addition, at a roundtable organized by the U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) recently, a U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy researcher said that the United States should increase defense support and investment in Taiwan Island, and it is a 5-year to 10-year investment cycle; Another US Indo-Pacific strategy researcher said that the United States needs to be ready to abandon Taiwan Island at any time and retreat to the Philippines, and replace the strategic position of Taiwan Island at most by seriously managing the Philippines.
Based on the propositions of these two US Indo-Pacific strategy researchers, it is obvious that the current operation of the Philippines has become the best choice for the United States - enter, the Philippines can be used as a springboard to form a north-south attack situation with the Ryukyu Islands, intervene and aid the strait war; If we retreat, we can retreat to the Philippines, replace Treasure Island with Luzon Island and the Luzon Affiliated Islands located in the Bass Strait, and serve as a strategic target to isolate the East China Sea and the South China Sea, and at the same time form an offensive posture against China's southeastern hinterland, while also throwing away the burden of interfering in China's internal affairs.
In short, it is indeed necessary to be vigilant against the intentions and actions of the United States in trying to open military bases in Luzon Island in the Philippines and the Bataan Islands and the Babuyan Islands in the Bass Strait - because the operation in the strait, the closure of the Bass Strait is itself an important part of our side; However, the stationing of US troops on Luzon and the Bataan Islands and the Babuyan Islands will become a wedge, making it impossible to close the loop of our naval and air blockade.
More importantly, the US military will also form a pincer attack posture against us based on this (garrisons in the Bataan Islands and Babuyan Islands) and the fulcrum of the Ryukyu Islands, sandwich the north and south, rush to the aid of the strait, and gain a favorable position in the defense geography (geography).
