Foreign media: US sends B-52 to challenge China’s air defense identification zone, China doesn’t intercept [on NetEase]

At 6pm on November 26th, Washington time, the Agence France-Presse website published an article titled “US Sends B-52 Bombers to Challenge Chinese Air Defense Identification Zone”, mentioning an official of the American Department of Defense stating that two B-52 bombers belonging to the US Air Force have flown over the East China Sea without notifying Beijing in 25th, challenging China’s newly established “East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone”. The two B-52s flew for less than an hour in the air defense identification zone (ADIZ) unilaterally declared by China, and wasn’t intercepted by Chinese military planes.

B-52 bombers are the longest-serving American Air Force long-range subsonic strategic bombers, mainly used for long-range conventional and nuclear bombing missions. Its design was started in October 1948, and the first prototypes flew in 1952. Production B-52B began to be outfitted for the army in June 1955, and subsequently expanded to 8 types: A,B,C,D,E,F,G, and H. Production of B-52s stopped in October 1962, with 744 bombers produced total. Now, the B-52 together with the B-1B and B-2 bombers, forms the US air force’s strategic bombers.


America specially developed the air-launched AGM-86B cruise missile for bombers. The AGM-86B is a small and light-weight subsonic cruise missile. The size of it is similar to the AGM-6g short-range attack missiles, and so is its weight (namely 1,360kg), able to use a nuclear warhead equivalent to 200,000 tons of TNT or a conventional warhead of 454 kg high explosive, with high firepower, convenient to carry, an a maximum firing range of 2,500 kilometers. B-52H bombers can carry 20 missiles of this type.

When B-52 fly over, it sounds like a thunderbolt, the roar of justice reverberating in the sky. Uncle Sam, the symbol of freedom.

If American devils fuck your mother, will you still say it sounds like a thunderbolt?

American devils have fucked your mother? Then you must be a hybrid/mixed-blood…


Since 1969, Japan has also established air defense identification zones, just 130 kilometers from the Chinese mainland at its closest point, but Chinese military planes never notified Japan when they have flight activities in the East China Sea Chinese territorial waters and international seas. So, the B-52 flying into the air defense identification zone set by China this time, as along as they didn’t enter Diaoyu island airspace, it’s no big deal. But for the Pentagon to publicly announce this, their intention is to instigate Chinese netizens’ emotions.

Has the chicken blood you injected yesterday subsided? [Satirizing someone being too excited. During the Great Cultural Revolution in 1960s, there was the notion that injecting people with chicken blood could make them have ruddy complexion and filled with excitement]

I don’t like war, but I don’t want our sons and daughters of the Chinese nation to be humiliated. If we have no choice but to use force, I’m willing to do everything I can to support my country. China has a population of 1.3 billion, and if everyone makes a contribution, which country can contend with us Chinese?

When I saw this netizen’s comment, I was suddenly reminded of encountering a little kid burning an ants nest —— that fire burned millions of ants at once, including the ant king, the ant queen, as well as all the big and small government officials, children of government officials, children of the rich and powerful of the ants kingdom, with none of them able to escape.

I had a lot of feelings when I saw this scene: If in the evolution of the ants, even if they couldn’t can’t catch up with speed of evolution of humans, if they could’ve just caught up with the speed of evolution of wild boars, they wouldn’t have been so miserably massacred by a little kid today!

Even if they evolve to human being, they can’t get their hair upright without hair. That’s why they were so miserably massacred.

The Obama administration declaring its position like this is not very smart. The unspoken words implies they don’t recognize China’s air defense identification zone. Then when did China recognize Japan’s air defense identification zone? You fly in mine, I fly in yours. America flies [in the zone] once, China flies back in return, and flies back once more, buy one and get one free. Suppose China has the same political system as America, would this conflict still happen? I think it still would. America’s starting point is geo-political considerations. If the Northeast Asia free trade zone is formed, it will be an entity that is even more competitive than the European Union. Highly skilled workers, cheap labor costs, financial groups, it’ll have everything that one expects to find, and America’s position in the world economy will be weakened, so America is not subjectively being kind. No matter if it is Korea-Japan relations, Japan-China relations, or Russia-Japan relations, we can see America planting, instigating, and creating conflicts. And obviously, China, Korea, and Japan all lack long-term vision in political intelligence, instead using conflicts first and foremost to divert attention from internal problems.


What to do next?

“Those above” have secret plots,

“those below” have no choice/are helpless.

Back then Little Japan was defeated, and occupied by America,

and modern Japan is not a “vanquished” nation,

but instead has become a democratic country.

So, external forces can also change autocracy.

This explanation is uncannily similar to prostitutes selling their cunts saying it doesn’t count as being fucked as long as a condom was worn.

If they come in [the ADIZ], just shoot them down. They will be presumptuous if you indulge them. After shooting them down, whatever it cost [compensation], just deduct it from the debt America owes. What’s there to be arrogant about?
