The five-nation military exercise threatens the Chinese Communist Party Abe: Xi Jinping must not misjudgment | Five-nation joint military exercise | Shinzo Abe |

[NTD News December 1, 2021, Beijing time]As the CCP continues to provoke in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea, the United States, Japan, Australia, Canada and Germany held a joint ANNUALEX military exercise in the Philippine Sea, which has obvious implications for deterring the CCP. At the same time, the former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shouted to Xi Jinping that “absolutely no misjudgment”, if the Chinese authorities take military risks, it is tantamount to “suicide.”

The five-nation military exercise means the CCP

On November 30, the 10-day ANNUALEX 2021 joint military exercise ended. In this military exercise, the five countries of the United States, Japan, Australia, Canada and Germany dispatched a total of 35 warships and dozens of military aircraft.

The USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), the Japanese quasi-aircraft carrier Izumo-class helicopter frigate Izumo (DDH-183), and Canadian and Australian warships have all dispatched. This is the first time to participate in the exercise.

According to the press release of the US Pacific Fleet, the exercise subjects include communications tactical exercises, anti-submarine warfare, air combat exercises, maritime replenishment, cross-deck flight exercises, and maritime interception exercises.

The commander of the U.S. 7th Fleet and Vice Admiral Thomas (Karl Thomas) unnamedly warned in the Carl Vinson briefing that the ANNUALEX joint military exercise was meant to “tell those countries that it is not appropriate to act rashly today.”

“A number of countries have shown new strengths that we may not have experienced before, and we are trying to deter their aggressive actions.” Thomas said.

At present, it is the CCP that poses the most serious threat to the Indo-Pacific region. The US Department of Defense released the “Global Military Deployment Report” on November 29, putting the CCP’s military threat first.

Japan’s latest annual defense white paper also regards the CCP as a major national security threat, referring to the increasing frequency of CCP’s military activities around Taiwan, giving Japan a “sense of crisis.”

On December 1, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe delivered a video speech on “New Era Taiwan-Japan Relations.” He stated that the CCP has increased its military expenditure by 42 times in the past 30 years, which is four times higher than that of Japan. It is estimated that the CCP’s annual military expenditure will increase by 7% in the future, and the next 30 years will be full of crises.

Abe said that Japan cannot allow the CCP to use force to invade Taiwan. “Taiwan has something to do with Japan, or it can be said to be equal to something wrong with the “Japan-US alliance.”

He shouted to Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the Communist Party of China, that “the Taiwan issue must not be misjudged” and that “taking military risks is tantamount to a road to economic suicide.”

Abe said that Taiwan and Japan should continue to increase their economic and military strength to counter the CCP. During his tenure as prime minister, he vigorously improved Japan’s self-defense capabilities and increased its defense budget year by year. Today, Japan has 147 most advanced F35 hidden fighters.

Former U.S. Marine Corps Colonel Newsom told VOA that exercises like ANNUALEX will continue to increase in the future, and the intensity will also increase significantly to respond to the threat of the Chinese Communist Party.

Newsom said that the United States, Japan and other countries held joint exercises to convey a message to the CCP, “Don’t make a mistake.”
