US reconnaissance planes frequently break into China’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) with the intention of forcing China to fire the first shot first.
2020.8 The frequency of U.S. military incursions into the South China Sea and the dispatch of military aircraft to harass China has increased rapidly, with 67 sorties by various types of reconnaissance aircraft, including RC-135, EP-3E and E-8C, launched in July alone, an unprecedented intensity of activity. On the evening of the same day, an E-8C flew in the direction of Guangdong and was at its closest point only 51.68 nautical miles (about 95.7 km) from the baseline of Chinese territorial waters.
2020.8.25, the U.S. U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft trespassed into the PLA’s northern combat zone live-fire exercise no-fly zone activities without authorization, seriously interfering with the Chinese side’s normal exercise and training activities, seriously violating the U.S.-China code of conduct for naval and air safety and relevant international practices, and easily causing misunderstandings and miscalculations or even naval and air accidents.
Historically, U2 reconnaissance aircraft have been shot down seven times, five times by China, and China has been able to shoot down U2 reconnaissance aircraft using anti-aircraft weapons since 1962.
On 2020.8.28, information from the South China Sea Strategic Situational Awareness Program platform shows that a P-8A Poseidon 27 took off from a U.S. military base in Japan at 7:00 a.m. and kept flying southwest to enter the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) delineated by the Chinese, while it continued flying southwest to cross the ADIZ, then turned around at 1:00 p.m. and departed northeast.
US logic of action.
The U.S. goal now is simple and clear, through frequent provocative actions to test and wear down the patience of the Chinese government, do everything possible to take the initiative to create conflict, if you have ever understood the logic of Trump’s thinking, you will not be surprised, this is his favorite tactic - to target the limits of pressure, in January 2020 he used the same method against Iran.
It’s not hard to notice that both the recent U2 reconnaissance aircraft sent and the recent P-8A have been flying at very low altitudes, and shooting down these aircraft is easy for China’s modern air defense systems, so the US government aims to use extreme pressure tactics to get China to make overly aggressive moves, preferably by shooting down any aircraft, forcing China to fire the first shot, causing " The fact that “China provoked the conflict” justifies sanctions and war against China in order to divert the black issue, the unemployment rate, the economic dislocation, and the conflict over the New Crown epidemic to war, without concern for legality, international conventions, or damage to the country’s image.
Invite the United States to visit the wreckage of all the U-2s shot down by China in the past 60 years (the previous U-2s shot down were from the Taiwan Air Force).
Do not fight back no matter how provocative the United States is without determining the hostile intent of American aircraft
Wait for the US election to remove the lunatic Trump from power, or wait for Trump to make the US states independent
